cian nugent - Doubles
Okay I’ll admit it; this wasn’t what I was expecting from Cian Nugent’s debut album ‘proper’. I’ve heard his music before, and while he can clearly play guitar better than most pretenders to the Takoma throne, I’m getting somewhat bored with the seemingly endless stream of Fahey-esque guitarists out there. Well thank goodness that ‘Doubles’ is so much more than that as Nugent uses the Fahey/Rose axis as merely a jumping off point, and like James Blackshaw has managed to come up with something gorgeous out of the ashes. The first piece begins simply enough, but as it progresses we’re greeted by the buzzing of analogue synthesizers which build into a queasy drone. The flip is where it’s at for me though; and here Nugent is joined by a percussionist and a few other players who flesh out his writing into epic proportions, reminding me of Jim O’Rourke at his best. Seriously good stuff, don’t sleep on this one!
