Yo. If you’ve seen us live any time in the last few years, or if you’ve got your hands on a pre-release copy of Primordial Cordial, you will know the name of our regular guest vocalist, Nuala Honan, and you will know that she doth have a right good pair o’ lungs on her (as they say). Well, those lungs have been hard at work on an album of their own. The rest of Nuala has been quite heavily involved, too. Otherwise this post would be to tell you about the new release by Nuala Honan’s Lungs, which definitely has a different ring to it than news of a new album by Nuala Honan herself, which is actually what I’m supposed to be going on about here. Yep and yes, people: today is your lucky day, because all Nuala’s hard work has culminated in a fantastic new album which is just out – like, as of right now. Hurrah! Entitled The Tortoise (I don’t know why, but maybe it’s something to do with this?), this album is Nuala on finest form. The Tortoise draws heavily on Nuala’s love of good old rootsy country music, so it’s pretty different from the songs she’s done with us. Different in a really good, gutsy and country-soulful kind of way. Get yourself to her website, check it out, show some love, buy yourself a copy.
To celebrate the setting free of The Tortoise, Nuala has a couple of album launch shows coming up:
Bristol – May 22nd Fiddlers £7 adv
London – My 16th The Harrison £5 adv
Go, see, say hello. It’ll put a nice big smile on her little Australian face.
