This is taken from on of my favourite albums of 2015: Didn’t He Ramble by Glen Hansard. My relationship with Irish music can be complicated; sometimes it is nice to reminded of home, sometimes I find it too twee by half.
However, I encountered this record at a time when my mind was drawn from Berkeley to the Emerald Isle which made it’s traditional sound perfect. This is especially true of this track which reminded me of my rurual small town adolescence.
I have some time on my hands this Christmas so thought I might post a few tracks after a LONG hiatus. I’ve been thinking a little bit about some of my favorite albums and so thought I would post a few tracks from them that haven’t featured yet.
