The ONLY Irish band

Right now, this is IT! The new album from Republic of Loose and it leaves everything else on it's face, bleeding from the pores and streaming snot into the gravel. Standouts: Got, 23 Things I don't like, 13 Shots, I.R.I.I.S.H., I like Moosik and Mik Pyro's impression of Van on My Brain. Urrrrrrrrngh - Good God - they gotz the funk - and the stuff. Nothing else in the country comes close (excluding resident masked aliens and one chilly plucker of alt-victoriana). Isabel Reyes-Feeney is the illustrator who's created most of the ROL graphics (her vocals feature on the album too!) - check her work here.
