Doune The Rabbit Hole

Last weekend I attended the excellent Doune The Rabbit Hole festival outside The Port of Menteith in Scotland. I was very happy to finally see the amazing Welsh legend Gwenno live. I also saw a fantastic performance by Bell Lungs, accompanied by Oscar Leyens and incredible dancer Suzi Cunningham. I rounded off a great day with the bleedin' deadly Lankum from Dublin. There's something ancient that gets awakened in the genes of an Irish person listening to The Rocky Road To Dublin being sang live.

Sting & Shaggy!

Sting and Shaggy, a match made in Tiny Desk heaven! You may not initially think that the silky smooth Sting groove would go well with a generous helping of Jamaican timbre from the sensational Shaggy, but you would be wrong my friend! :-) Sit back, relax and crank up the volume on this class Tiny Desk performance! (They also have an album out called 44/876)

Swanlork in Dublin & Cork

Last week, The Swansea Laptop Orchestra finished up their Ireland Tour in Dublin and Cork. They played in Studio 10 in Dublin supported by The Line, Check out the photos from Dublin here. They also played in the fantastic Guesthouse in Shandon in Cork, supported by The Quiet Club. Check out the photos from Cork here.

Music Meta Data

The Verge have an interesting piece on the lack of standardisation of meta data in the music industry. Royalty money is being left on the table because of data errors and/or mismatches between the many meta data databases used by the numerous streaming services, especially when dealing with collaboration tracks.
