Yawning Chasm will be launching his new album “Songs from Blue House” at this Rusted Rail label showcase night. “Beautifully crafted, hypnotic folk of the like you don’t hear much nowadays, blissful musings and beautiful melodies” according to Norman Records, while The Irish Times call his music “Delicate and affecting”. Aaron Coyne a.k.a Yawning Chasm has delivered an album of intimate songs with both pastoral pace and bucolic bliss and you can hear them at this launch gig for his album “Songs from Blue House”.
Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon
Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon released the album “The Statue of the Hunter is Lost at Sea” in the spring of 2017 on Rusted Rail. It has been described as “special stuff…something in the way that folk songs become swathed in wisps of shoegaze and abstract drones is mysterious and ineffable” according to Norman Records, while The Galway Advertiser said “Its sonic textures and atmospheres, left-field indie guitar work, and folkloric lyrics, draw the listener into a strange, beguiling world”.
A Lilac Decline
The music project of acclaimed visual artist Cecilia Danell, her album “The Mountain Rages” was released in 2017 on Rusted Rail and has been described as “having a ghostly, hazy beauty that is hypnotic and easy to get lost in” according to Ptolemaic Terrascope, while Norman Records call her music “wonderfully evocative home made folk songs”. The Galway Advertiser praised her “Gentle, lyrical, yet intensely personal, folk-influenced songs” and named A Lilac Decline the Galway Advertiser Solo Artist of the Year.
