Christmas Download: Popical Island – Blotto

Holiday greetings from Ireland! ‘Tis the rainy season here, making for more of a wet than white Christmas season.

Rather than trudge to the local pub why not stay home and listen to “Blotto” from Popical Island, a Dublin-based musical collective hatched in 2010 by the bands Land Lovers, Yeh Deadlies and Groom. The fine people involved help organize events and musical releases for local artists, including Tieranniesaur, Walpurgis Family, Jonny Fun and the …Hesitations, and Big Monster Love, who has a new album slated for release in February 2016. Joining together in 2010 with these bands, the 21-piece Popical Island Showband released the six-song Christmas EP, A Hard Old Station.

Closing out the EP, Popical Island’s “Blotto” sounds like most nights at BFON headquarters. Grab a pint or two and settle in by downloading “Blotto” below. You can check out the entire A Hard Old Station EP via Bandcamp as there are no unintentional snow angels to be made here tonight.
