Young Dubliners

Absolutely

Higher Octave

When the Celtic pop of this album rhymes “knickers” (in the song so entitled) with “shitkickers,” you begin to get the impression that these musicians, however one may define “Young,” may not in fact be “Dubliners.”

At least, not currently anyhow. Nevertheless, this California band does in fact contain expatriate Irishmen (like Black 47 of a few years ago), and you will hear both fiddle and pennywhistle on a goodly number of tunes here, so unless you’re a Celtic purist, it’s no big whup. Good solid guitar-based pop with a Celtic twist, ranging from introspective to rollicking. Buy.
