• Premiere: Loner Deluxe – Track 1 Side 1

    We’re pleased to offer a first look at the new video by Galway’s Loner Deluxe. Comprising Rusted Rail records main man Keith Wallace, A Lilac Decline aka Cecilia Danell and So Cow’s Brian Kelly, the trio’s recent LP, Field Recordings, is hands down one of our favourite Irish albums of the year thus far. A highlight, opener ‘Track 1 Side 1′ is a cyclical lo-fi feat, featuring scorched lead guitar in the vein of Pixies’ Joey Santiago. Have a first look at the track’s accompanying visuals, courtesy of tinyEPICS, below.

  • Watch: A Lilac Decline – Mountain Rages

    The anagrammatic musical pseudonym of West Coast-based Swedish visual artist and dreamfolk musician Cecilia Danell, A Lilac Decline’s debut album, The Mountain Rages, has just been released via Galway imprint Rusted Rail. Having come together during sessions in the spring and the wet summer of 2016, the album was recorded via one microphone and a selection of borrowed and found instruments in a Galway attic room and a remote cabin in Norway. Melding Danell’s brittle ruminations with  ‘gazey soundscapes, check out the title track – and its video – from the album below.
