• tir na nog The Dark Dance (LP, £17.50)

    label: Mega Dodo

    Tir na nOg have been described as Alt Folk, Prog Folk, Psych Folk, and even Space Folk! But the duo, formed by Leo O’Kelly & Sonny Condell in 1970, transcends all these categories. What is not in doubt is that they are two of the most original and influential songwriters and performers Ireland has ever produced.   ‘The Dark Dance’ released on CD in 2015 is their most recent studio album. Prog Magazine placed it in their top five best album of the year and called it “an acoustically mounted piece of great refinement, on a record often embellished by strings and moments of eastern promise'’. Classic Rock Magazine said: “Each of these deceptively serene songs has an underlying mysticism, an arcane quality that cannot be denied”. Only available until now as CD and download, Mega Dodo has had the album mastered for a vinyl release in a gatefold sleeve. TRACK LISTING Side 1: You In Yellow (3:04) / I Have Known Love (4:23) / The Angelus (4:25) / I Pick Up Birds At Funerals (2:13) / Ricochet (4:48) Side 2: Andria (3:40) / Sympathetic Love (4:20) / The Gangway (3:43) / Time Is Gone (2:54) / The Dark Dance (3:12)
