This week’s host is Sligo based artist Anthony Wall, aka Milk Harbour, who for nearly a year has been exploring the darker corners of his psyche with exquisitely moody monthly releases and accompanying podcasts.
Originally from the west of Ireland, Wall traveled the world in his role as a sound engineer with NBC winning two Emmy awards in the process. According to the bio on his website, he always found the idea of promoting himself embarrassing which prevented him from releasing music for years. Not any more.
Beginning with the slinky, All Things To All Men released in February 2020, Wall has taken full ownership of his abilities as a songwriter, producer and recording engineer. So far there have been nine Milk Harbour releases spanning a range of genres from New Wave to Spoken Word all anchored in Wall’s strong vocals and thoughtful lyrics.
Each release features original artwork by Wall or a guest artist and tracks occasionally feature guest musicians.
As a bonus, Anthony records a podcast to accompany each release. The Milk Harbour Process is a look behind the scenes of the writing and production of each Milk Harbour track but often explores topics relating to the lyrics of the songs that are at times deeply personal
Milk Harbour’s latest track, The Winding Sheet (feat. The Hunter) was released in January.
Going Coastal is broadcast on Flirt Fm, BCRFM, RosFM, Wired Fm and Dublin Digital Radio. Each week a different host talks us through the music that they love.
