LARKIN: Alexandra: CDEP

Celtic or Irish music is not a particular genre that I follow closely. But their debut release, The Curse of Our Fathers, was something that I took notice of and found it to be a good alternative to what I normally listen to. I see they released a second full length titled Reckoning. So this is their third release, which features six original songs in the style of traditional Irish folk. There’s something about songs like these that seem, to me, to be a combination of fun and depression. It’s like a drunken stupor: being in another state of mind with a bit of escapism. For fans of the Pogues or Flogging Molly who want to find something a little below the radar.
