Going Coastal

2:00pmSunday

Going Coastal w/ Aul Boy This week's episode of Going Coastal was recorded in Donegal by Aul Boy and features west of Ireland acts Happy Out, Constant Supply, My Fellow Sponges, Captain A, Tugboat Willy, Myles Manley, SlowPlaceLikeHome and Crevice.   Aul Boy are an indie-rock type quartet that combine the sounds of New York, California and Donegal in a genre-jumping collage of clever lyrics, loose guitars and tight rhythms. Their music is sometimes sharp and noisy, sometimes light and poppy, sometimes big and spacey and always with a bit of a groove.    Aul Boy began life as the solo project of guitarist and singer Fionn Robinson, who got around to producing his own music after years of slinging guitar for other bands. December 2016 saw the quiet release of his first offering - a 5-track, home recorded EP entitled Blue Ghosts. Since then the operation has expanded to include Bjorn Patzwald (drums), Peadar Coll (bass), and Jeremy Howard (guitar/keys) and have been sharpening their live teeth as well as writing and recording new tracks as a band. In July 2018 they released their first single as a four with their song “Wait” which was “a wry, tongue-in-cheek, slice-of-life (“I’m not buying milk for two, baby“) distillation of Mac DeMarco, or Terror Twilight-era Pavement were they late-risers from Donegal” according to The Thin Air, and made several end of year lists for best Irish releases. In early 2019, the band went to record an EP in Attica Audio studios (Villagers, SOAK) and, over the course of three days, captured the four songs that make up Making Strange. They describe the EP as a kind of light hearted bop through existential crisis and disconnection. Something along the lines of David Berman singing with Mac DeMarco produced by Stuart Braithwaite
