MP3 of the Day #888: Meltybrains

By on Friday, 28th August 2015 at 10:00 am

I thought it might be nice to send you off on your bank holiday weekend with a free mp3. Today’s comes courtesy of those lovable Irish rogues Meltybrains?, who wowed me at the Music from Ireland showcase Wednesday at SXSW 2015. Carrie also caught them at the full Irish breakfast on Friday and sat down with them for an interview.

The band from Dublin are currently giving away on their Bandcamp the track ‘The Vine’. It’s dedicated to their music lecturer Paddy Devine, “who taught us harmony and counterpoint back when we were in college. Paddy was the nicest lecturer we ever had, he was big into his rudiments and was very strict, but he was the most down to earth person you could ever meet. We were his very last class before he retired and he often took us out to drink wine with him.” Sounds like a nice man, and the eclecticism and innocent whimsy of the track is a lovely thank you to such a hero who helped mould them into the musicians they are today. Listen to and grab the track for your own (or at your own price, should you wish to give Meltybrains? a tip for it) below.

Want more Meltybrains? Of course you do. Right this way, ladies and gents.
