THINKERRS (Album Launch)

THINKERRS

[‘BLACK DOG’ ALBUM LAUNCH]

plus guest

JON HUGHES

Thinkerrs launch their new album Black Dog tonight.

Patrick Hallinan is a man of many guises. Early lo-fi, mini-epics from the wilds of Connacht called to mind Elliott Smith and Sam Beam in four-track mode, while instrumental side-project ‘The Third Rehearsal’ ploughed the furrow of off-kilter, late-night Donal Dineen revelations from the underground.

In recent years, now based in Dublin and with the help of fellow exiled Mayo men, he has assembled a collective known as Thinkerrs, capable of more raucous musings, with whom he has recorded 2 albums. The latest entitled Black Dog is a medley of sweetly refined, folk-tinted introspection and muscular workouts, blending elements of Americana and grunge. It moves through a combination of reflective poise and moments of blistering intensity, not unlike a Hibernian Neil Young. A rich lyrical tapestry is woven throughout. Look out for slow-burner ‘A Void’ and the metal edged ‘Bloodlet’, both from the new recording.

Support from the accomplished, alt-folk, American artist Jon Hughes.
