‘SEASON OF THE SPARKS‘
The new album by ADRIAN CROWLEY
Released on Tin Angel Records, April 22nd 2009.
Adrian Crowley‘s fifth album, ‘Season Of The Sparks’ comes to light just over a year after ‘Long Distance Swimmer’ his Choice Music Prize- nominated breakthrough record. Written almost in its entirety in Adrian’s attic the album was co -produced by Stephen Shannon and Crowley at Experimental Audio in Dublin. The recordings were made over fourteen separate days with many of the songs being captured in single live takes.
For this album Galway raised / Dublin based Crowley calls on celebrated baroque string player Marja Gaynor and long time touring partners Emma Smith & Vince Sipprell of the London avant garde string duo ‘Geese’ (who recently collaborated with Hot Chip and Robert Wyatt). In the past year Crowley has toured with Silver Jews, Vetiver, James Yorkston, played Electric Picnic and has continued his strong alliance with Scotland’s Fence Collective.
With ‘Season Of The Sparks’ Crowley leads us in turn through the intimate and the epic while shining a light on new creative territory, his love of words and distinctive voice as bright and clear as ever.
In short, this may well be Adrian Crowley’s finest album so far.
The album launch is on Wednesday April 22nd in The Sugar Club. Tickets are €10 and are available from City Discs, Sound Cellar and usual outlets.
