PERCOLATOR are a Dublin based experimental music band. Their meandering genre sprawling compositions have been compared to Swans with a leaning towards NEU!s krautrock driven rhythms. Following the very warm reception of their debut album Sestra (Penske Recordings), Percolator are currently threatening their next release from their ever deepening Spud-cave, Guerrilla Studios.

“Percolator are one of the most intriguing and melodically arresting bands in Ireland at the moment. Both live and on record. Buy their album, go see them live.” – Overblown

“Sestra is a gripping, intriguing, original and paradoxical album. What blows here is the perfume of total freedom as a metaphor for the world that is our today as magnificently sublime as it is it may be horribly devastated.” – Burn Your Life (France)

“Sestra is a masterclass in filtering the band’s.. brilliantly breakneck hybrid of Krautrock locked patterns and submerged psych-pop”. The Thin Air

The Altered Hours are a music group based in Cork city, Ireland. Their music takes on many forms, exploring vast psychedelic spaces, immediate post-punk tones, repetitive rhythms and propelling structures. Having previously released music with Anton Newcombe’s Label ‘A Recordings & Irish indie labels such as Art For Blind Records & Penske Recordings, the band have toured extensively across Europe over the past few years. Their discography to date has shown an ever evolving style, sometimes unpredictable yet always exciting. Live, they have become known for their intense & exhilarating performances.


“Steeped in haze and distortion and armed with mind-blowing structure” – The Fader

“On the intense and hypnotic In Heat Not Sorry, much of the music is utterly spellbinding.” – Hot Press

Silver Leather sways with an atonal guitar riff that is reminiscent of The Fall; a krautrock influence is audible in the motorik beats of Way of Sorrow and Who’s Saving Who?; and the influence of The Velvet Underground looms large throughout as Cathal MacGabhann and Elaine Howley trade ethereal, woozy vocals. – The Irish Times

“…takes me back to that window of time around 1988/89 when indie rock was flying off in all sorts of interesting directions and no-one had had invented names for it all yet.” -Brooklyn Vegan
