Product description

Product Description

Much anticipated second album from the Irish/American band. The Gloaming have performed repeatedly at the most prestigious venues. To co-incide with the album release, five shows at the National Concert Hall in Dublin, and one at London’s Union Chapel, sold out within days, some within hours. With over 7000 set to see The Gloaming perform at this time, the band’s sophomore album is widely tipped to have a chart-topping debut in Ireland. Their debut was widely acclaimed as one of the finest recordings of 2014, featuring on many year-end best lists including Mojo, NPR Music, and the Irish Times; was picked by The Guardian as The One Album You Should Hear This Week; won a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award; and the Meteor Choice Music Prize for Album of the Year.

Another worthy album I'm sure, but for me it lacks the up-tempo excitement of the Gloaming's first album. Anyone hoping to jig around the kitchen to this will not get many opportunities. It's all very controlled and sedate. Their first album was played in our house and car endlessly because of it's spirit-lifting quality. This I'm afraid will be put on the "occasional" shelf in favour of Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill's many other wonderful duo performances.

That I am coming back to acoustic music is down to bands like The Gloaming who have managed to breathe so much freshness and originality into their work, despite the fact that much of the material here is quite ancient re-works. This does not fit neatly into any narrow genre, but rather will be enjoyed by anyone who enjoys beautifully crafted, played and recorded music. The cover is also a wonderful work of art!

If you have heard their stunning debut album ,then this 2nd offering follows on in much the same vein. The 5 piece band have produced a second album combining generally slow tunes, mostly their adaptation of traditional Irish songs with which I am not familiar, or old poems as lyrics as a starting point. The pace is often fairly funereal , the vocals by Iarla O Lionaird are carefully measured and sung in gaelic, so I have not got a clue what he is singing about, but it sounds moody and magnificent, with a very stylised delivery. Add to the mix stately classical influenced piano from Thomas Bartlett, guitar from Dennis Cahill, fiddle from Martin Hayes and Hardanger d'Amore from Caoimhin O Raghhallaigh and you have a rich melodramatic evocative mixture, unlike anything else around, this certainly stands out from the crowd as being distinctively different. It creates a somewhat sombre, relaxing but intense serious mood piece that hangs together beautifully. The playing and singing is of a high standard from master musicians, it is excellently produced, and released on the Real World label. It is something very special to immerse yourself in, and deserves your undivided attention, it is far too good to be background music . The dozen tracks glide by creating a sense of spiritual calm, a very special atmospheric ensemble piece that is truly memorable.

If you like music you will love this. Simply the best traditional music to come out of Ireland in years. Do not be put of by the tag traditional. This is simply beautiful music performed by 5 of the very best musicians and singer around. A group of superstars enjoying themselves.

I'm not really a folk music person, but they were mentioned by Verity Sharp on radio 3, and I bought the first album on the strength of her recommendation. Thank you, Verity. The second album is so beautiful, so moving, so joyful. it's just stunning musicianship and goes beyond classification.

A great follow up to their first album but too similar to give it 5 stars.
