Andy's a singer and a writer from Northern Ireland, living in Melbourne. LAMA came back from Berlin bringing Andy's heart that is the wonderful Sebastian White who's playing drums in both groups tonight. And if that isn't a connection I don't know what is. Hold on - Dave's mum is from Ireland, Andy and Sebastian too.
White has switched from edgy folk label Cooking Vinyl to the more austere Thirsty Ear for this self-titled departure from his usual sparse and driving protest songs and Irish ballads. These are thoughtful pop constructs that leave the listener on a plateau of abandon one minute and in a melancholic valley the next. The album is outstanding in its evocation of emotional ambiguity, both lyrically and within its brilliant harmonic changes.
