    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK - PRINTER CLIPS, THE SHAKER HYMN, & BLUEPRINT

     



    Call it a side project if you like, but Printer Clips' self-titled debut is something that stands very much by itself. Bell X1's Paul Noonan has enlisted names like Gemma Hayes, Joan As Police Woman, and Lisa Hannigan to bring us a sometimes powerful, sometimes fragile, but throughout striking album.

    'Rascal’s Antique' from The Shaker Hymn is another strong debut album by an Irish act this year. In fact it’s hard to believe that this is a debut; there’s a huge amount of depth and maturity in the songs. Here’s an album to listen to again and again, and discover something new as you become acquainted.

    You may know his solo work, you may be familiar with his collaboration with RJD2 (Soul Position), or you may have never heard of him. Blueprint's 'Respect The Architect' album is a tonic for who've been bombarded with too much bling from their Hip Hop in reenrol years. Simple put; it's a sharp and clever album that should be investigated immediately.

    BURIED TREASURE - 'THEY KNOW WHAT GHOST KNOW' BY YPPAH

     



    'They Know What Ghost Know' is one of the most underrated albums released over the last number of years. It was created by Yppah, who is Californian-based multi-instrumentalist Joe Corrales, Jr. 

    This album knows no boundaries as it draws from Shoegaze, Soul, Psychedelic, and Electronic. It’s equal part ‘Play’ (Moby) as it is ‘Loveless’ (My Bloody Valentine), but with a strong identity of its own. Dan features Yppah’s 'They Know What Ghost Know' as this week’s Buried Treasure album.
