    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: A LAZARUS SOUL, MARK LANEGAN BAND, & NORTH ATLANTIC OSCILLATION

     




    Saying that a new album is a return to form suggests that the artist in question lost it somewhere along the way. Dublin’s A Lazarus Soul haven’t missed much over the year, in fact the only thing that you could say that has remained evasive from them is worldwide acclaim. Their current album 'Last Of The Analogue Age' manages to harness that brooding energy that Whipping Boy brought us on the seminal 'Heartworm'.

    Mark Lanegan has been part of bands like Screaming Trees and Queens Of The Stone Age, but it’s with his Mark Lanegan Band that he’s spent much of his recent years. They’re a truly awesome live force, and they don’t sound that bad in studio either! ‘Phantom Radio’ stays at the extremely high standard that we have come to know from Mark Lanegan Band.

    Amid the great oceanic tides of modern day music, North Atlantic Oscillation have been working diligently under most people’s radar. For those who’ve discovered them, they’re a treasure of a band. Featuring Irish musician Sam Healy, the Scotland-based bring us album number three with ‘The Third Day’. Feast your senses on this electro pop/electro rock beauty; NAO have been overlooked for far too long.

    BURIED TREASURE - 'BLACK RIVER FALLS' BY CATHAL COUGHLAN

     


    Cathal Coughlan’s impact on music is far greater than many would imagine. From iconic work as part of Cork band Microdisney, through to his time with The Fatima Mansions, his career has constantly evolved. This evolution has continued throughout his solo career. The year 2000 saw him release his excellent ‘Black River Falls’ album. Dan features this as this week’s Buried Treasure.
