Here’s a reissue of Lisa Hannigan’s 2008 debut LP, Sea Sew. As the cover may give away, it’s a collection of cutesy folk tunes with Lisa’s husky vocals crooning over soaring strings and musky drumming. The album was nominated for a Mercury and a Choice Prize and went to number one in Ireland. A perfect Sunday morning album to gently blow any cobwebs away.
After a successful stint as Damien Rice's vocal partner, Lisa Hannigan set out to prove herself as not just a singer but a multi-instrumentalist folk songwriter. 2011's Passenger, Hannigan's sophomore release, showcased her true talents as an all-rounder, and is now available on vinyl for the first time. Expect profound folk tales, delivered by sweet Irish vocals and accompanied by rustic guitars. Released as Vinyl LP and CD on the Play It Again Sam label.
Folkie Lisa Hannigan has made two solo records of sparse musings and has previously worked on improving the works of Damien Rice. Her new one, At Swim, has both the lightness and dramatics that characterise her work, and Aaron Dessner respects her sound by producing the record with a thinking space homeliness.
