Every red moon, month or when the bright golden lights make you feel magic, Ether Site will recommend a band or singer/songwriter that you might like… Today we recommend Lisa Hannigan.
Lisa Hannigan, known for her work with Damien Rice before he kicked her out of his band for reasons unnown, has spent 2008 recording her debut album. It was released in Ireland (and via her website) after a lot of hype. And the hype was worth it. If you like singer songwriters, Lisa’s Sea Sew is the best thing you can buy right now. It gets a proper release next month (3rd of February) and I recommend this one to everyone. Highlights for me are album opener An Ocean And A Rock, Lille and the catchy I Don’t Know. The lyrics are intelligent yet soothing. The sounds are warm and cold at the same time.
Lisa will be touring the United States and Canada in February and March 2009.
