LAST WEEKS NEW RELEASES
We missed our mailout last week so here it is.....
THE GLOAMING - Live at the NCH - LP €26.99 (Realworld)
The musicians of The Gloaming came together seven years ago to explore the possibilities of Irish contemporary music, and have since gone from strength to sparkling strength. What started out as somewhat of an experiment has turned into something truly compelling, enthralling and thrilling. Something which never fails to lift the heart or lift a roof. Something which connects you to old souls and wild ways and fierce times. This live album is released around the time of 7 sold out out shows at the National Concert Hall in Dublin where these performances were recorded.
LP includes download code.
MIEN - Mien - LP €21.99 (Rocket Recordings)
Mien are Alex Mass (Black Angels), Tom Furse (The Horrors), John-Mark Lapham (The Earlies) and Rishi Dhir (Elephant Stone). The record is the result of the members' bands meeting each other at various festivals across the world. Several traversals of the globe by both plane and audio-file later, the result is an album that sees this quartet transcending their origins whilst maintaining a cohesive unity borne of a desire for outward exploration. "Imagine the Black Angels as Nico in her 80’s industrial phase mixed with George Harrison and Conny Plank."
Limited edition coloured vinyl.
MIND OVER MIRRORS - Bellowing Sun - 2 x LP €24.99 (Paradise Of Bachelors)
Bellowing Sun is the culmination of composer, synthesist and harmoniumist Jaime Fennelly's explorations of the natural world's sensory dimensions and its relationship between electro/acoustic music and the avant garde. Commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the record was recorded and mixed with John McEntire from Tortoise. The record features members of Iron And Wine, Death Blues and Freakwater.
Double LP is housed in a gatefold sleeve and includes a download code.
