Band from Ireland that plays punky pop numbers, some of them sung in Korean. I heard them play a live set on WFMU this morning and thought it was pretty cool. Definitely for fans of The Homosexuals.

I'm kind of split about So Cow. He has some brilliant tunes, and then some others that sound average. In saying that, I haven't heard that much, so any recommendations are welcome. Thanks for the free music archive link.

Yeah, that free music archive is probably more deserving of its own thread. wfmu is the greatest. i thought 'casablanca' was a pretty decent tune.

This guy has been an instant favorite of mine for pop perfection since I heard the first single "Moon Geun Yung". Two CDs were self-released over the last couple years, plus a couple 7" singles. The best of this material has been collected onto an 12" LP out now on Tic Tac Totally. He's touring right now....his second tour of the States, but his first with his own backing band.

In a way he (Brian Kelly) has more ties to the bands that are part of the Shitgaze scene than what goes on in Ireland/Europe, even though he has his own individual sound. The first time I've heard So Cow was about a year ago on DJ Rick's Art For Spastics, when he played 'Shackleton', to this day my favourite song of his. If memory serves me well he also covered Deerhoof.

Shackleton is a brilliant pop song. It has a good lyrics, a great melody, a nice organ, and Kelly's voice is very good in itself. It could easily appeal to fans of Belle and Sebastian.

Thanks, I was wondering a while ago if he had a proper full-length out, and somehow I've never managed to check the various bistros on the internet.
