I arose today at noon to head into Road Records to catch Mumblin’ Deaf Ro, who was taking part in the all day celebration of International Record Store Day. I couldn’t make it to The Boom Boom Room last night, where Ro was supporting experimental folkies The Spook of The 13th Lock at their album launch. I have only heard Le Hare from the Spooks album, a track which we heard on the indie hour a few weeks back and is up for your listening perusal on their myspace. Looking forward to having a good listen to the self titled album, perhaps we’ll have them in on the indie hour for a session soon…
There are a host of folks playing acoustic sets at Road Records on Fade Street all day today – you’re not too late to have a listen to Mark Geary, Lauren Guillery, John Hegarty, and David Kitt, who will be playing in the friendliest record shop in Dublin until 5.30pm today.
Mumblin’ Deaf Ro has four tunes up on his myspace from a Radio na Life session for download. You’ll find What To Learn It and Where to Learn It, Restring The Bow and El Salvador from the excellent The Herring & The Brine, as well as the new tune Cade Calf Call which I suspect will feature on the next Mumblin’ Deaf Ro album to be released sometime in the next five years 🙂 Thanks to my buddy Fenster for the heads up on the downloads.
Road Records have a 20% sale on everything in store at the moment. I saw Thrill Pier down there today, happily availing of the discount. Good man.
The mp3 of The Jimmy Cake interview the other night will be up shortly.
