The best place to check out these acts – and hundreds of other new Irish acts – is on the excellent Breaking Tunes site. When it comes to finding Irish bands to profile in New Music every week, I’m using Breaking Tunes more and more.

More to come on HWCH 2010, including details of some very interesting panel discussions and an OTR Presents evening. If you want to know my feelings on HWCH and events like it (and what bands who’re fuming about not getting in should do), this post is the one to read.
