A music blog from Ireland.
Special this Saturday: the official launch of Katie Kim‘s fantastic, 20-track second album Cover & Flood. I’ve had about six weeks to soak up those songs and still return to the faithful Your Mountains and thrumming Heavy Lightning but Dimmer has grown into my favourite track on the whole album, a ‘somewhere’ song that takes me off for just three minutes.
Let this take us away, for longer than three minutes too. The Unitarian Church has become an established haunt for discerning souls and this show is latest in a run of quality concerts in the non-denominational hall of worship on St. Stephen’s Green. Supporting Katie is Waterford’s Deaf Joe, a friend and close collaborator who recently released the gorgeous Burrowings in February. Armed to the teeth with songs, they’ll surely be in powerfully good form, all lit up by the splendid surrounds of the church from the only Donal Dineen on visuals. Tickets are €12. Cover & Flood is €15 for digital/CD and €25 on double vinyl from Flaming June.
Katie was kind enough to speak to me about the new album recently: read the interview here.
