Aoife O’Donovan, In The Magic Hour (2016)
Bargain! I picked this up at the recent record fair for $2. Brand new. Or listened to once. Couldn’t believe my luck. Thought the sticker said $12 – and that seemed reasonable. But looked again. $2! I guess not many people know about Aoife O’Donovan down here? Well, I had to guess that – as the record is in mint condition. I first heard aAoife when she was in the band Crooked Still, not that I really knew it – I loved the band but wasn’t really paying any attention to the individual members. When I heard O’Donovan’s solo debut I was mesmerised. And it all made sense – and it was back to Crooked Still for more. And what then seemed a long wait until this album. So now I’ve fallen in love with it all again – finding this album for way cheaper than should ever have been the case. Bargain!
