POST-PUNK PODGE AND THE TECHNOHIPPIES
Limerick multi-instrumentalist Post-Punk Podge channels frustrations with Irish politics, mental health and media into a wild, noisy break-laden squall.
Podge and his collaborators second E.P. sees the lads continue to tear into their surroundings and cultural context across five chaotic, textured tracks.
While Podge’s Lydonesque vocal sneer is loaded with purpose, the honesty and vulnerability that makes his music so thrilling is brought home poignantly in one fleeting moment, with a poem from Podge’s mam to close Pause for the Apocalypse.
Raw, uncompromising and gloriously angry.
