I found switching the radio off works best for avoiding the omnipresent MJ.

Hey welcome bank Rubium. :D

I'm been mostly listening to Lisa Hannigan's album Sea Sew over and over and over again today. Due to going to her gig in town last night.

I remember when I first got this album a while back, I wasn't that pushed with it. Not that it was bad per say, far from it. It’s quite good it’s just that it didn't grab my attention. I’ve been listening to other newly acquired albums. Another reason for I've only recently given the album the attention it deserves is mostly because I've been playing the Cocteau Twins' Heaven or Las Vegas and Heartworm by Whipping Boy like an addiction for the last two or three months. But since I saw her live last night, I seem to have become more and more enamoured with the record. So now I'm afraid I’ve developed a dependence on this album like a junkie does with smack. Why didn’t I pay attention earlier? Why did it take seeing her live for me to give her work a proper listen? She (along with Gemma Hayes) is miles above any of the acoustic singer-songwriters that this country seems bloody smitten with for some reason, name Damien Rice, Mundy, David Kitt and the rest.

As for the album itself. It’s small and intimate, generally the opposite of what I usually like. There’s nothing in it that’s innovative but fuck it. Who cares about that anymore? Music has been rehashing itself for ages now. For example, The Horrors new album (and fellow Mercury Music Prize nominee) Primary Colours is a mix of My Bloody Valentine and Neu!, while Glasvegas are the new Jesus and Mary Chain but with stronger Scottish accents. Anyway it’s simply a striking album from, can I say, a striking looking woman. The beautiful whispery vocals, atmospheric strings, chiming glockenspiels and xylophones all contribute wonderfully to the gorgeous delicate melodies. Unlike her contemporaries who just seem to plough the same dull field, these instruments are used on songs which are actually good.

I'd recommend anyone and everyone to a least give this album a listen, or better yet, go to one of her gigs. It may not be for everyone, but that's life.

Yeah I know how it is. I had the same thing with the last Duke Special album. Wasn't too pushed on it when I got it in advance of seeing his gig in Letterkenny, but after the gig I liked it. I think it was just remembering the gig that helps me enjoy it more.

Yeah I heard he was supposed to be pretty good live. He played here a month ago but I couldn't go. :( Did he use that old gramophone at all during the gig?

He used it the first time I saw him when was just him and another guy. Oh and the Inishowen gospel choir for Free Wheel. :D
The second time he had the band with him.
Third time, which was the most recent, was just him and "Temperance Society" Chip Bailey(One guy who uses a items like pots and a Stumpf fiddle and other things). Think the gramophone made an appearance then as well.
Best part of that night was when he had to finish playing due to the curfew on amplified music, but then we all went down to the lobby of the theatre where he had a piano set up and he and Chip kept going, taking requests and all, getting the crowd involved and singing along. Great! :D

Hmmm, when I first saw that video and had it on in the background I was wondering why you had to lift your jaw, then I heard the lyrics. Was unexpected.

At first I thought it sounded like a slow version of this Irish Country and Western song

Content's different though :D

Ah now I'm really pissed off with myself that I missed him. :( Whites better bring him back next year. But that third gig sounds like it was great one to be at. *Envious*
