    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: YOUNG FATHERS, VILLAGERS, & HAM SANDWICH

     



    If Young Fathers were supposed to stutter and struggle with their second album, they've gone off script. 'White Men Are Black Men Too' finds the Mercury Music Prize winners revealing another layer, and in the process making an album that will be in contention for the next Mercury Prize.

    Villagers third album 'Darling Arithmetic' is getting outstanding reviews. Is this because Conor O'Brien is a nice guy (which he is)? Certain not; this album deserves every bit of praise that it has and will receive. You do get the feeling that this album will only rise in your estimations as you become more familiar with it.

    ‘Stories From The Surface’ is album number three from Ham Sandwich. Here is a band that have battled through some testing times, and continuously improved. This album sees them grow into a band that have the creative credentials to win over an audience just about everywhere; let’s hope that happens too.

    BURIED TREASURE - 'HAUNTED LIGHT' BY CAP PAS CAP

     



    The one and unfortunately only album from Dublin band Cap Pas Cap is this week's Buried Treasure. It's a hard album to sum up in words, as it one of those albums that didn't sit with the trend of the time (2009), and still doesn't today. Sometimes brooding, sometimes playful, 'Haunted Light' is a wonderfully mysterious album.
