Hefty Horse presents: Sacred Animals/We Are Losers/The Holy Roman Army
This takes place upstairs in Whelan's next Tuesday, January 11th, with three bands/acts who released fantastic EPs last year, and who should all be releasing some more quality stuff in the year ahead. Sacred Animals' Welcome Home was widely acclaimed in the end-of-year lists and summaries, with 'Chosen Seed' already having the air of a classic about it
We Are Losers, a solo project by Gavin Elsted of Super Extra Bonus Party (who's also behind Adultrock and the Adebisi Shank/Jay Z mash-up), released an EP that was two parts lo-fi Wavves-esque fun and one part dreamy shoegaze amazingness ('Windbreaker'):
...while Carlow-based duo The Holy Roman Army were responsible for the Desecrations EP, a collection of covers that brought new life to classics by Rollerskate Skinny and the Pixies. They'll be getting back to releasing their own self-penned material this year, with a follow-up to debut album How The Light Gets In due.
Incidentally, there's also a Holy Roman Army remix of a Sacred Animals tune in the pipeline for the not-too-distant future.
Three great acts then, fiver in, 8pm kick-off.
