Reviews

Galway Only Knows
'Pet Sounds' is an experience as much an album, writes Dylan Murphy, in the latest review from our Journal of Music/Galway City Council Music Writer Mentoring Scheme, and hearing the 60s masterpiece live was a reminder of its meticulous construction – but Brian Wilson's presence on stage raised other questions.

Paul Brady's songs have soundtracked Ireland since the 1970s, crossing many styles, but what are the characteristics that bind his songwriting together? Deirdre Clare, in the latest review from our Journal of Music/Clare County Council Music Writer Mentoring Scheme, listens to a song-rich performance at Glór.
