I peered through the fronds at Autre Monde

Autre Monde – Village Of Loomers

Paddy Hanna and Autre Monde are becoming auteurs of a particular kind of Irish kitchen sink vignette. Over the episodic release of the four tracks on The Dukes Of Abbey Street (Popical Island), they’ve developed a very distinctive sound that undoubtedly wears it’s sharp, clipped new wave-influenced heart on it’s sleeve. Especially on “Village Of Loomers” I do feel some Blades in there and maybe even a little Phil Lynott too, there’s definitely that Dublin sound that I always find hard to define but recognise the minute I hear it. I’m not quite clear what a Loomer is TBH but if you’re looking for a village full of them you won’t have to go much farther than Aughrim. Here’s the full EP so you can judge for yourself.
