Currently on the stereo: Cathal

Currently on the stereo: Cathal Coughlan’s second solo album ‘Black River Falls’. Stunning string and other accoustic arrangements, with a jazzy/folky accent and a touch of the old electronic noise, driven by Cathal’s big and now slightly husky voice and his evocative lyrics – cinematic as ever. Out on Cooking Vinyl now. If you’re partial to the minor key and the sweet and sour a la Cave, Costello, Walker or Cohen, wade into Black River Falls. And if you don’t believe me, check the Amazon review.
