Someone asked me for a midi file of the drums in “We’re goin’ in. We’re going down.” recently, which gave me a reason to open it up again and noodle around. I wondered what it would sound like with just bass, drums, and background ambient guitar tracks. As it turns out, it sounds pretty cool!
I got an email this morning about this Irish singer/songwriter and I’ve had his new album playing on repeat ever since. If you like Bon Iver, S. Carey, or Tallest Man On Earth I think you’ll probably love James’ work. It has a very nice depth to it; some tracks are dark and brooding, some are uplifting, and some are a fantastic blend of the two.
