Guide - Upcoming Irish Releases

Just Mustard – Wednesday


We’ve already said it, but it bears repeating – Dundalk’s Just Mustard are becoming one of our favourite bands in Ireland, and on May 2, they release their debut LP, Wednesday.

Moulding swooning, soaring psych-gaze from elements of post-punk, lo-fi electronic & trip-hop, their space-conscious guitar abrasions and delicately haunting aquatic vocals, as we’ve described, “taps right into that exact feeling that creeps in at great small Irish festivals around the early evening. You know the one we’re talking about.”

The band have “made a conscious effort to provide the listener with the experience of hearing the band in a room, in their natural state, with little to no polished, glossy, post-production magic” and it shows, in the best possible way.

Set for release via Pizza Pizza Records (who we featured here back in January) the album was recorded by David Noonan from the band at their home studio, with additional recording by Chris Ryan of Robocobra Quartet at Belfast’s Start Together Studios.

You can pre-order it on Bandcamp on vinyl & digital formats. Stream it below:
