    Whats the best act that you discovered this year that you never heard before that. For me it's a band from New Jersey called the wrens that I've mentioned here a few times. Other than that depending on whether or not it was january or late december that my mate Dessie thrust a CD-R into my hand and said "give this a listen, I think you'll really like it" (he does this now and again, he's usually right) I'd also mention Sufjan Stevens. Also TV on the Radio.

    Unicron, Gotta agree 1000% with you on The Wrens. Came across their Meadowlands album earlier this year and it is immune to criticism. Brilliant. The Postal Service are another 2004 discovery that I know will endure in my listeing habits. Utter magic. eoghan

    Isn't it though? Try as I might I'm not able to go more than 2 days without listening to something off of it and I've had it for going on 8 months, current fave is "13 months in 6 minutes". The lyrics are quite difficult to make out but if you get a chance to look at the liner where they're printed you'll see that Charles Mexico (may not be his real name ) really has a way with words. I honestly haven't been so taken with a record since I was 17 and OK Computer came out, unfortunately it doubtful that they'll ever tour over here.

    I bought their album over the weekend after you mentioned them in a thread and pitchfork said some nice things about them, haven't got around to listening to it yet.

    A lot of pressure on the E - best Irish album ever! Look forward with interest. New single is ok.

    Thought the musical discovery of 2004 was the Rags. Internationally it had to be Keane and The Ordinary Boys.

    have made my discoveries in the last few months in Ireland, internationally i am going with: Keane, Killers, Thirteen Senses, Snow Patrol. In Ireland i loved Cortinaz79, the Rags, Wicker and Jove. The latter i saw in Voodoo(Finally!!) after all yer talking about them!!! I didnt see anything amazingly new but the review posted up is unbelievably harsh. Agreed such a tiny turnout must have been a massive disappointement and voodoo aint exactly the hotest of sound set up venues but i thought they overcame that big style & on what i saw last friday, i would go see em in the bashed up Olympia without probs. Think Cortinaz79 also have something special to offer.

    The review that I did for Jove in Voodoo was an honest account of that gig. I will be going to see them in TBMC on Tuesday so hopefully they will prove all my earlier assumptions wrong.

    In fairness Gar's review doesn't paint a good picture, but does sound like that he wasn't being harsh for the sake of it, but maybe a review from a different point of view would be interesting.

    I tried to point out the exact areas where Jove failed to entertain me as a listener. Yes, it is harsh but not overly. I think that they have the ability to improve greatly and hopefully I will see/hear them in better form next week. At least, the review got two people talking about it. Thought this was meant to be a discussion board.

    well i saw jove on Fri too, have seen em before and to be fair i kinda know their guitar player. i did think the review was a bit harsh. i think they're made for a bigger place but like ya said, poor turn out. i wouldn't review em myself but i'd love someone else whose never heard em to do so to see if ya both feel that way. all said, the music centre has crap sound too! i like the chapters by the way and have heard great things bout 66E.
