More Agitated Radio Pilot CDRs

When you head out west from Galway city with the Aran Islands to your left, it is not long until you come across a landscape that resembles nothing so much as photographs of the Martian landscape. . Keith, Maeve & I were heading out to the Coral Beach outside Carraroe, a place both desolate & beautiful. It was bitterly cold & the tide was coming in. A few fishing boats slipped about in the waning light & a group of divers appeared out of the water nearby. Connemara is beautiful at any time of year. There can be few places in Ireland with such a wealth of places to lose yourself. I was reminded of the yearly camping trip my friends from home & I make every June down to the Renvyle Peninsula...hiking across mountains....usually towards a pub....
When we got back to the city a bright yellow full moon kept its fat lookout over the old town below & I thought of seals I had seen swimming in the Claddagh....I used to live in Galway many years ago & it is only now as an occasional visitor that I truly appreciate the place.
I'm happy to let you know that there are a few new ARP releases...
LAST ORDERS AT THE ONE TREE HOTEL is a 20 minute odd EP and available now as a Deserted Village release thru our website & soon thru Boa Melodybar in a limited handmade edition of 20.
THE LIGHT IS COMING FROM YOU is a collection of live recordings drawn from our tour with Charalambides in July of this year. Mainly song based it features versions of songs on YOUR TURN TO GO IT ALONE & the forthcoming WORLD WINDING DOWN. It is another Deserted Village release in an edition of 20 & available thru the Village shop & soon thru Boa Melodybar also.
A PREMONITION is now available as a free downloadable EP on Rusted Rail
And a new review of THE DAYS & HILLS GROWN OLD is up on Terrascope Online
