CIAN NUGENT & THE COSMOS
Having just returned from a USA tour opening for Angel Olsen here is Cian Nugent & The Cosmos! Cian Nugent’s first widely available album ‘Doubles’ was released in the summer of 2011 to great acclaim from Pitchfork, NPR and The Wire, and rightly so. Nugent’s playing is a glorious thing – it twists and turns as if telling a story, with each chord change revealing something new. Over the past year, the young Dublin-based guitarist linked up with a 4-piece band called The Cosmos, a motley bunch interested in mining the same far out musical styles. ‘Born With The Caul’ is their first studio album and the group is a force, existing some place out of time. Not only is their sound an era-less one but the songs themselves are never in a hurry as they build and unfold, never wasting a note.
Strictly over 18′s, I.D. may be required.
