20. Tony Fitz – Just Another Day
With Just Another Day songwriter Tony Fitz merges two usually disparate art forms (music & graphic novels) into an innovative work that creates a sprawling widescreen soundscape, tinged with alternative-country flourishes, while also conveying the stark beauty seen in Tommie Kelly’s artwork.
19. Sissy – Sissy
Uncompromising and exhilarating in its feral garage-rock sound, Sissy’s debut E.P. works as an irrepressibly individual take on the genre and establishes the three-piece as an exciting new prospect going into 2015.

The Lost Gecko Debut Album -Track 10 – ‘Set Your heart in Motion’
This track encompasses everything we feel we can’t do when a relationship ends. All the hurt, anger, self-loathing, loss…and about picking up and getting on

Track 7 of the new album is called ‘Unphotographable’ and Title track of the album. It is primarily about those feelings and thoughts that cannot be captured on camera or social media. Those which are our own and always will be. Even about how music has changed in recent years. I guess i wouldnt be writing this now if it hadn’t, to be honest and definitely wouldn’t be doin a crowdfunding campaign. http://fundit.ie/project/the-lost-gecko-debut-album
22 days to go folks on our fundit adventure. :)
Track 6 on the new album is called ‘Rescued by Waves’. I wrote this track after surfing in Garretstown one summers evening about 3 years ago. I started surfing in 2006 after recovering from the loss of the baby. It kept my mind occupied and if you want to come back to shore, you to concentrate and be very aware of whats is happening in the water. I don’t claim to be an ‘Awesome’ surfer by any means. Me and two others were sitting out on the water. It was purple in colour and the sky was something special. it started to rain and the water was so came. We were sitting there bobbing up and down in the beauty of Garretstown. inevitably, a song was gonna come out of it. ‘Rescued by Waves’.
