British Sea Power - Man of Aran

Nautical nuances

British Sea Power - Man Of Aran

Never ones to shy away from a heavily conceptual project, Brighton quartet British Sea Power conceived their new album as the soundtrack to an obscure 1934 film called Man Of Aran, portraying life in the fishing communities of the Aran Islands on the west coast of Ireland.

Cue all manner of indie-ambient drones and texture, mimicking the rising and falling and groaning and creaking of nautical life, and somehow evoking Brian Eno and Neu drifting around the Atlantic in a lifeboat.

The largely instrumental soundtrack stands on its own, but the CD comes packaged with a DVD as well so you can appreciate the music in its original setting.
