Our take

by Angus

Fontaines D.C. was a name unknown to many outside Ireland until the release of their debut album ‘Dogrel’, and if you’re unfamiliar, it’s with a hearty recommendation that we suggest you acquaint yourself.

Where ‘Dogrel’ was the sound of booze–soaked Dublin pubs, A Hero’s Death brings to mind the Emerald Isle’s rolling hills in the depths of winter. This is post punk at its most emphatic, a more sprawling and sometimes psychedelic take on the genre. The songs build with a good deal of patience, and there’s a little less rock’n’roll and a little more anxious energy on display here. A Hero’s Death announces Fontaines D.C. as one of the world’s most exciting guitar bands.

Since many of our visitors are at the beginning of their vinyl voyage, we thought it'd be helpful to have a starter's compass.
