The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

Live performance by Adrian Crowley
 
If I were a decent writer, I'd describe Adrian Crowley the way Emerson Dameron did in Dusted Magazine online: "A few days ago, you, for the first time, really, really crapped out in love. Your fragile heart was crushed under heel, ground into a fine powder and scattered in the winds. Ireland's Adrian Crowley can help. "Tall Ships," the opening dirge on When You Are Here You Are Family, beautifies ache and fatigue like a heartbroken steam engine whistling Tennyson's In Memorium as set to music by Leonard Cohen. Crowley sings like a seasick Emerald Isle Jeff Buckley, with all the anguish and none of the affected smoothness. "Tall Ships" creaks and mourns deeply enough to earn a slot on Idaho's Year After Year, which is about the highest praise a sad song will ever get from your reporter. And that goddamn cello. Man. You now know that, in a world where such empathy can exist, no fashionably aloof crush object can keep you indoors." Plain and simple, Adrian writes and sings beautiful songs, and I feel fortunate we were able to snag him for a solo set while he was visiting from his hometown of Dublin.
