ZiRP breaks the silence with new album, Circle Divine
When an album gets featured as a Daily Disc, a full review AND a Monthly Marker, you know it has to be something special. And the newest ZiRP album is just that. Something really special. With Circle Divine,
‘invents’ a whole new genre: instrumental fusion folk-funk. and we at Celtcast absolutely love it.
Circle Divine is one of those rare albums that is earcatchingly good at the start and still gets better and better as you play it again and again and again and again. There is nothing more here I can say, that I didn’t already said in the review, so here is the
enjoy the read, and enjoy listening to this amazing band.
The Daily DiscThe Carrots – Driftwood (2020)
A couple of years ago, we met the band
Half a Mile
on the Dutch festival
That was the only time I got to see them perform because the band decided to stop their activities…, but…, on the 5th of December CeltCast HQ received a present in the physical mailbox! The timing was perfect because in Holland this is ‘Sinterklaas dag’ (Saint Nicholas day). On that day children give a carrot to the horse of ‘Sinterklaas’ and hope the old man will, in return, give them some nice presents! Well, we received
that day and that was a fantastic surprise!
This album contains five beautiful acoustic folk-rock songs and comes with a booklet with the lyrics. Their music is a mix of folk-, world music, and Americana. The theme of the album is very fitting in these turbulent times: going with the flow, struggling with the period we’re in and accepting changes.
My favourite songs on this album are Everything Flows and Train of Thought. I can listen to that one over and over again…, and well…, actually the whole album is sending the right vibes. So, go to their page and welcome this new band in our scene!
