Since I’m in Ireland for a spell I thought I’d post some of our favorite new Irish music of the past year—some of which may not have permeated Stateside music minds.
Dublin-based Little Green Cars —Stevie Appleby on guitar and vocals, Faye O’Rourke on vocals, Adam O’Regan on guitar, Donagh Seaver O’Leary on bass and Dylan Lynch on drums—formed in 2008. They’re signed to Glassnote, have toured extensively outside of Ireland, and are likely one of the present Irish ensembles better-known in the U.S.
The band has performed on Jimmy Fallon; they’ve played SXSW, Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Osheaga. Their second album, Ephemera—named after a W.B. Yeats poem—was released back in March. Here’s “Easier Day.” Enjoy.
