THE RUBY TAILIGHTS: DRESSING UP
I've been meaning to write something up about the CD I received in the mail from Dublin's RUBY TAILIGHTS, called 'Dressing Up' on the Irish label, Buenos Records. It's one of those soft releases you can play on repeat and never bore of as the tracks are gentle on your mind. I wrote about and put 'Switch' on a previous Future Sounds comp, but the full length spins magic with 'Bloodboy', 'Rocket', 'All Of It', and 'Buenos Aires'. The song called, 'Dressing Up', is actually the most tender moment on the disc, a wonderful tune. Would love to see Martain and the RT's get the word out to people outside of Ireland.

Here was the review of 'Switch':
THE RUBY TAILIGHTS – Switch
I had this demo CD handed to me while visiting Ireland at the end of last year, and I was quickly taken by something gentle and low-fi and fuzzy. Formed in 2003 by Martain Kelly, former frontman of Dublin band SUNBEAR, this is Dublin, Ireland’s THE RUBY TAILIGHTS. Thrift store-indie rocker types and fans of DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE, SUFJAN STEVENS, and BRIGHT EYES should warm up to this one. It just feels good. Needs: Management, legal, booking.
THE RUBY TAILIGHTS – Demos – No label.
Here's what "The Last Splash" show on Today FM (Ireland) said:
"The Ruby Tailights have all the qualities of my favourite bands wrapped up in one. They can remind you of the Pixies, a bit of Pavement and some Guided by Voices all at the same time". - Alison Curtis, Today FM
