We were always somewhat sceptical of the value of the IMRO awards in such a small country. Did it really matter whether Vicar Street or The Olympia or The Academy is venue of the year? Who could ever knock the Roisin Dubh off their pedestal in the west? This was until Another Love Story won best small festival last month and we appreciated the significance of this recognition to them and how it might even help a grant application. Homebeat jammed the Sugar Club with the sublime Christian Loeffler last month (please play ALS!) and now, another friend of theirs, Lambert is about. He brings the keys (minimal opulent sounds from his piano) while Swimming brings the beats (digital sounds mixed with field recordings).
