The weekend is here, and so are some new sounds to check out.
LISA GERRARD & JULES MAXWELL of DEAD CAN DANCE are back for a new audio-visual trip with ‘Keson (Until My Strength Returns).’ Gerrard explains, “Keson implores us to live in our dreams and befriend our soul.” Produced by James Chapman (MAPS), the entire ‘Burn’ LP is euphoric and compelling, more inventive than what they had worked on separately in the past. Each track builds and intensifies, creating a hypnotic experience to listen to from start to finish.

Dublin indie music icons DAVID LONG (INTO PARADISE) AND SHANE O’NEILL (BLUE IN HEAVEN) release the 3-track EP ‘Dreams Come’.Recommended for fans of early New Order, Echo and The Bunnymen, the Go-Betweens, The Sound Beck and Tom Petty. The Irish Times calls this “as even-handed a collaboration as they come… creative synergy that time hasn’t had the nerve to erase”
Irish music icons David Long and Shane O’Neill present their ‘Dreams Come’ EP. This 3-track offering arrives hot on the trail of their ‘Far From Home’ EP and video for the title track, which has garnered the duo excellent reviews and radio play in dozens of countries.
The title track features a sweet, uplifting melody intertwined with bittersweet lyrics – a seeming nod to a love that could be fraying at the edges. From the beautiful opening chords right through to the end, it will make you feel like you want more of whatever it is. Love, loss, hope, all of it, whatever it is.
