next gig supporting The Altered Hours in the odessa club dublin 13 june


The Altered Hours‘ new single Sweet Jelly Roll will be released on April 29th on A Records.
The track had its premier on French music and cultural website Crumb Magazine,
who said ‘this song is beautiful: five intense minutes of voluptuous psychedelia and delicate intoxicating melodies’.
After spending an intense four days supporting legendary San Franciscan psych-rockers White Hills earlier this month,
 the band are now readying themselves for their own Irish tour, and will be hitting all four corners of the isle in support of the release.
Support on the night from Dublin band The Northern Drones.

REVIEW OF CRANE LANE GIG thanks to Traci for this -

Himself has a friend from back home who plays in a Dublin band. We were informed several weeks ago that he would be playing in Cork city, at Crane Lane Theatre. Since he is a childhood friend and we haven’t been out in ages, it was duly marked on the mental calendar. I wasn’t sure about the “psychedelic garage rock” genre, but some things trump skepticism.
So, the Northern Drones (the band Himself’s friend is in) sounded kinda like…. the Doors. Ok, so maybe not. But they had that trancy, deep sound you imagine playing as background music in old footage of people in the 60′s tripping on acid. What? You haven’t seen that footage? The music sort of drifted in and out, with a constant push ahead, even though I couldn’t really tell where it was going. That was the theme of the music, for me. The push…driving forward to somewhere…. His friend plays bass. His friend spent the entire set with his back turned to the audience. Afterwards, I didn’t ask why. I didn’t want to. I preferred imagining he kept his back to the hungry eyes of modernity while seeking his inner illusion of solitude and oneness with the psychedelic sound waves of bliss. Groovy man…..
