seamus fogarty The Curious Hand (CD, £10.50)label: domino
Irish alt folk and electronica alchemist Seamus Fogarty returns with his second album. It is his first album for Domino and follows his acclaimed debut full length ‘God Damn You Mountain’ (Fence/Lost Map). ‘The Curious Hand’ was produced by Fogarty and Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Wild Beasts), who also plays on the album. The album also features the multi-instrumentalist Emma Smith (Hot Chip, Jon Hopkins), who plays a plethora of instruments across the album’s 11 tracks. ‘The Curious Hand’ showcases Seamus’s natural inclination to take his songs and “screw them up,” by applying synthesiser drones and circuit burps, found sounds and spoken word audio samples that give all of his records such wonderful atmosphere, as if they’re haunted by rogue half-tuned signals from another world. Housed in embossed sleeve.
