Pure M Picks – July 12th

Life’s cold, but it’s colder without you wonderful people. Here’s the 11th Pure M Picks for all your aural desires.

Track of the week comes from The North Sea – “Drinking Alone”

The North Sea – Drinking Alone

A magnificent alt. rock anthem that needs to be played loud and proud. The North Sea are a band that deserve all your attention and with a cracking album just released, 2015 should be their year.

Púka – Train Man

A mid-tempo, almost psychedelic rocker from the Cavan band. It’s chilling, and if you like it, keep an ear out for Puka’s album which will land later this year.

Stella Bass – Too Darn Hot

This cover of the Cole Porter classic is a thoroughly enjoyable jazz romp. It’s found on her new album of classic and contemporary covers.

Foot-tappingly enjoyable indie from The Winachi Tribe. Plus the video features Keith Allen!

Barry Jay Hughes – Judgement Day

Rousing pop-rock from the Monaghan man. Lively, assured, and his stand-out song.

Final Days Society – Debris

The final track from the Swedish band’s new album is a theatrical, ambitious, mournful piece of art.

 

Tahoe – Crossed Paths

A mish-mash of sweet melodies and harsh screams. The French band have created a track worth checking out.
