Coming to the Arden Club: LANKUM

Our friends at the Arden Club have a show coming in March featuring the exciting young Dublin band LANKUM:

“LANKUM create crushing, apocalyptic, layered drones using Uilleann pipes, harmonium, fiddle, voice and more.

NPR : #8 Album of the Year – Brothers Ian and Daragh Lynch, Radi Peat and Cormac MacDiarmada create crushing, apocalyptic, layered drones using Uilleann pipes, harmonium, fiddle, voice and more. It has the intensity of electronic music, but this is all acoustic music in service of songs that are often centuries old. This stunningly beautiful, trance-inducing album record draws heavily on traditional Irish folk music, but with a deep dark Dublin twist.

Billboard: The Year’s Heaviest Irish Folk LP – With droning uilleann pipes and harmonium, moaning fiddle and accordion, and absolutely gorgeous four-way harmonies — like on the original ballad “The Young People,” whose haunting, Bob Gallagher-directed video Billboard is premiering here — the group builds acoustic soundscapes as hypnotic and overpowering as anything in post-rock, doom metal or even ambient electronic music, all genres they claim the influence of.”
