Sky RojoNetflix 

The highly anticipated second season of its high-octane Spanish thriller series 'Sky Rojo' will premiere today (Friday).

Three ladies, Coral, Wendy, and Gina are on the run in a quest for freedom while being pursued by Romeo from Tenerife's Las Novias Club, and his henchmen, Moisés and Christian. The ladies embark on a hectic, chaotic trip together, in which they must confront several perils and experience each moment as if it were their last, all while developing their relationship.
Shifting away from the Spanish noir aesthetics of 'Money Heist', 'Sky Rojo' uses a brilliantly colourful, neon palette to combine numerous genres into “Latin Pulp”, as its creators Lex Pina and Esther Martnez have dubbed it. In another change, the pair have reduced the length of each of the season's eight episodes to a manageable 25 minutes.

 

The Sightless City
Author: Noah Lemelson

Kidnapping, enslavement and murder are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to actions some will take to protect their interests in æther-oil, the coveted substance that fuels the city of Huile.

As both veteran and private investigator, Marcel Talwar knows this first hand, and he likes to think he'd never participate in such things. However, that naïve idea comes to a crashing end when he takes on a new case that quickly shatters his world view.

A trail of evidence points to someone in Marcel's inner circle who's using him as a pawn to conduct grisly experiments that could lead to genocide.

Now, Marcel is more determined than ever to discover who's pulling the strings to this sinister plot. But the further he gets, the larger the target on his back becomes, and it's not long before Marcel has to ask himself how much and how many he's willing to sacrifice to get to the truth.
Meanwhile, Sylvaine Pelletier, a brilliant engineer who gave up everything in her quest to restore some of the world’s pre-apocalyptic splendor, discovers that Roache can supply her with the power she needs to manipulate sangleum, but at a high cost.

 

The Crayon Set
'Downer Disco'

Dublin-based band The Crayon Set release their third album 'Downer Disco' on September 24 this year. It is their strongest album to-date filled with their trademark expertly crafted pop songs and dual girl/boy vocal interplay - this time with added synth-pop and electronic goodness.
On July 16 the band released two songs as a free taster from the album.
In keeping with their crayon-colour philosophy, you get to choose your favourite release: the synth-pop sunshine-bliss of ‘Summer Song’ or the indie-rock swagger of ‘Rock Star // Dream Girl’. 

“We're really pleased with the songs and the sound on the album and we can't wait to release it," founder and main songwriter Robert Baker said. "The album has a happy-sad dynamic going on - we’re always trying to write and record the perfect pop song but lyrically the songs couldn’t help but reflect the increasingly stressed-out world we breathe in every day."

It hasn’t been the easiest 19 months for most industries – and for one local man it’s pure relief to finally be getting behind the decks.

DJ Cian Shiels from Pinewood, who runs Funktion Events is finally looking forward to his first gig back in almost two years.

He has been booked to run his own event night at this year’s K-FEST in Killorglin which takes place on Saturday (October 23).

At the K-FEST gig he will headline the show in O’Sheas Bar, Killorglin and will team up with Killarney’s George Heelan, and Jonno Brien and Karl Seery from Tralee, for a night of techno and house music which is expected to last four and a half hours. It begins at 7pm and entry is free.

“I’ve been out of work due to COVID-19, and this will be my first gig back in almost two years,” Cian told the Killarney Advertiser.

“I’m nervous because it’s so long since I did a gig. It’s like starting all over again.”

Cian is no stranger in town as he helps set up the stages for gigs in the INEC and Europe Hotel. He was also working as backstage crew for the recent ANSEO gigs who hosted the first gigs for many singers and bands since the shutdown began.

He set up Funktion Events in 2017 and past guest DJs included Rebuke from Letterkenny, Mark Reeve from Germany, Ejeca from Antrim and Harvey McKay from Glasgow. The shutdown happened so suddenly, but Cian thought he’d be back to business within weeks.

“The last gig was set up in McSorleys but we didn’t go ahead with it. I left the gear in there and said we’d run it in a week or two.”

It was months later before he collected the equipment.

“It’s great to be back working again,” he said.
