Well i'm not up to date on every band from Ireland/Dublin but for me Pillow Queens are the Dublin band who really represent what its like to come from the shitty suburbs of Dublin, even if everyone else just wants to talk about the lesbian angle. Could never see Fontaines writing a song like Rats or Ragin'.

I think Lankum are class and musically brilliant and deserve to sell out Madison Square Garden and all but their DuBLiN sTrEEt MIscrEanT thing is as much an act as Fontaines.
Dublin folk miscreants.

I really like the Pillow Queens.

I still haven't listened to Lankum. One of my brothers told me the album was amazing and starts off with a droney 8 minute version of The Wild Rover. I thought well it's either one or the other. He didn't really sell it to me.

Yeah it's got something, but to be honest I'd like it more without the Dublin accent & lyrics.

Sounds pure late 90s, like Placebo or someone. The Turn revival starts here!

For once, i'll allow the Whipping Boy comparisons because it's dreary as fuck.

That's decent. He's starting to sing a bit. Making progress.
