The Irish supergroup’s breathtaking second album of standards

The supergroup’s second album continues their fascinating deconstruction of Irish music, rendering it in spectral, unique new forms. Their key trick is to fuse and slow the traditions of folk, isolating the melodies and rebuilding them through prisms of jazz and alt-rock. There’s emotion sewn into every note so even if the full translation of the Irish-language poetry within “Slán le Máighe” and “The Pilgrim’s Song” eludes you, they’re still wholly moving songs.
