Boomkat Product Review:
So this is basically one of those rare records that everyone is talking about which is actually pretty fucking good. It's the debut EP from Davy Kehoe shelling down all sorts of spiky, motorik punk and 4th world promises on his fist solo followup to a vocal appearance on OD / MB’s Shplittin’ The Stones  12”. If you were into Morgan Buckley's great 'Shout Out To All The Weirdos In Rathmines EP' that you now can't buy for love nor money, grab this one fast.
Arriving on the heels of Wah Wah Wino’s excellent trio of compilation 12”s, their 2nd release proper is an urgent yet loosely psychedelic session adaptable to open-minded dancefloors and afterparty mania alike, operating with a refreshing mix of recklessness and sozzled emotions that’s bound to trigger feverish reactions wherever it’s played.
Barrelling in like Neu! on a ‘phet bender with Joe Meek in the frantic jag of Short Passing Game, the rest of the EP maintains that madness to varying degrees, consistently turning up prime oddities in the percolated slow/fast sway and meandering post-punk bass mumble of Going Machine, and then with a proper, Wire-y mesh of mathy guitar jangle in Happy Highway.
On the B-side however he channels his energies into a more fragrant, coolly expressive style with the waltzing 4th worldisms of Storm Desmond, folding in Mbira, harmonica and Seán Mac Erlaine’s wistful clarinet lines to clearly nod in the direction of Hassell, Eno & Byrne, before building those energies up again with the Suicide-esque teeth-chatter rhythms and MS-20 drones of Slow Rock Harmonica, and then going eyes shut, heads down into he warped electro-folk-dub of Running Into Coverage like a more messed up John T. Gast piece.
12" of the year? could well be, aye.
