Cian Nugent – Sixes and Sevens (excerpt)

Hooray for something different. Hooray for Dubliner Cian Nugent and new his album, ‘Doubles’, which boasts a mere 2 tracks. And before you start feeling a bit short-changed it is worth noting that ‘Peaks and Troughts’ and ‘Sixes and Sevens’ are both over 20 minutes long. Must say I was taken a bit by surprise by this fella, had imagined something of a balladeer but Nugent relies entirely on his chord plucking skills to make his grandiose instrumentals. This is an excerpt from ‘Sixes and Sevens’, the bit where all of Nugent’s contributors get involved to create a richly textured sound. I’m reminded of Nick Drake, and while Cian Nugent doesn’t have Richard Kirby to help him out on arrangements he doesn’t suffer at all by that comparison. A revelation. KD
