Something For The Weekend - A Lazarus Soul, The Swell Season

This Friday Weekly feature is about setting you up with some great music in time for the weekend! This week I have a few songs from Finglas indie band A Lazarus Soul and yet another update about The Swell Season charity gig.

A Lazarus Soul are a brilliant indie band made up of members from The Future Kings of Spain and frontman Brian Brannigan. Brian hailing from Finglas, Dublin and creates the sort of indie melodies that make A Lazarus Soul essential listening. The band are to play with Director tonight in the Tripod and are supporting Damien Dempsey at the Vicar Street gigs this month.

Another gig bites the dust. The amazing Swell Season charity gig mentioned in previous posts below has had to be postponed until the new year. "Unfortunately the December 8th Vicar Street charity gig had to be postponed and moved to a further date - sometimes early next year - due to unforeseen circumstances." MySpace Bulletin! I hope this ain't due to the bloody recession!

Moving on..... EXCLUSIVE for the blog. The lovely folks over at have given us a brand new live song from The Swell Season to promote the site.
