Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Music reviews: GridLink, Gary Lucas, Bblurbs and more

Shellac at Whelan's on 20 November 2013

Five months since my last reviews update here and it’s been a bit of a drought from me to be honest, especially when it comes to the heavy stuff. Expect that to change as spring gets going.

In the meantime (and ICYMI) check out my takes for Thumped on new/recent ones from Melt-Banana, The Necks, Chrome and GridLink, not to mention my interview with Coilguns before their short Irish tour last October, my verdict on Shellac’s gig at Whelan’s in November, and my second Noises On! column where I rounded up a few months’ worth of all sorts. I should do those more often; blurbing is fun.

Meanwhile, I was back on Burning Ambulance in October with my review of Dead Neanderthals’ …And It Ended Badly and more recently with some thoughts on three fringe jazz releases from New Atlantis Records and Gary Lucas’s songs from the movies. Expect to see something else from me up there before month’s end — I just don’t know what it is yet!
