Biography

'The Irrepressibles play in the wasteland of our post-modern capitalist cultural burnout, playing with the embers, crying for their ruin, and making new inventions. . .

Their name is a call to arms.

They want to be part of taking us forward,
they want a freedom. . .
. . . they believe we need it now.

They do not pretend to understand you, they are only ... Read more in Amazon's The Irrepressibles Store

Product Description

The special edition Rough Trade Album Club exclusive CD/DVD deluxe version digi-pack features the full album on CD with bonus tracks and remixes; DVD featuring music videos from Nude; fold-out full colour A4 poster; foldout colour booklet with lyrics and images of the band. Combining dark electronica with organic orchestration, the anticipated second album of The Irrepressibles, "Nude", is expansive and atmospheric in it's orchestration with powerful melodies and iconoclastic arrangements. On their 2010 debut album, "Mirror Mirror", the group carved a new frontier in pop with their influence seen on much of today's music scene. The Irrepressibles fuse classical orchestration, grunge rock, kitsch, exotica, electronica, sound art, jazz, samba, and folk into a heady and emotional style of music that is created instinctively, playfully and cathartically by J.R.McDermott.

One of those rare albums that I just had to listen to again and again. For a few weeks after this arrived, this was constantly on my playlist.

There are some truly beautiful songs of this album. Generally, this is more sombre than the debut, Mirror Mirror, but I think there's more raw emotion on show here.

I'm sure others can write better, more in depth reviews, but I love this. Must buy if you're an Irrepressibles fan, of course!

The Irrepressibles' debut album, Mirror Mirror, is one of my most-played albums of recent years and Jamie's vocals, coupled with the most beautiful orchestration makes for a sublime, otherworldly experience. Naturally, I worried about the prospect of a less-than-perfect follow-up but I'm pleased to say that this has been one of the best releases from 2012. My personal highlights are the tracks that don't stray too far from the formula of Mirror Mirror and I'm a sucker for an album with a running thread (homosexual love being the most obvious theme here). And that voice! ..A little side-note, the photography and packaging make this a must-have in its physical format.

First of all we have to speak of Jamie McDermott and his composition. It is a vast open-space music evoking open plains combed by some strong and yet light breeze, not quite a wind, but that can develop some strong and powerful gusts now and then. The violin and the piano are used as atmosphere building instruments and they are at times sad but mesmerizing in their way to drape us in long notes or sequences of harmonious clear and both separated and tied up notes.

Then there is the voice. Jamie McDermott uses two different ranges. A rather simple tenor voice that does not take any strength, any muscular force because it is the back base of the singing, the place where the singing finds its rest, respite and starting impulsion. But from this tenor range another range emerges regularly with power and elevation. It is considered by some as a countertenor range and probably is. It goes up into the high pitched range of human voice, not too high though but just enough to be associated with the power of flying up and up into some musical sky. This soaring countertenor voice is like the suffering, the desire for liberation and the conquering impulse of some sentimental, emotional and physical freedom that cannot be achieved otherwise.

This CD is the one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard. I actually felt transported to some Heavenly place at times. "Two Men in Love" captured me, Jamie's voice simply amazing. A more somber release than Mirror, Mirror, yes, but just as memorable and addictive. Being raised here in the States, I am listening more and more to music from other countries and feel more enriched and enlightened for it. Don't get me wrong, The Irrepressibles are certainly not the first "foreign" artist I have in my collection. It just seems American music in my iTunes list is dwindling quite fast! I do believe my ears thank me for it ;)
