Buy: Darling Arithmetic


Darling Arithmetic Villagers

Darling Arithmetic is the third album from Villagers. This is a breathtakingly beautiful, intimate album entirely about love and relationships. Written, recorded, produced and mixed by Conor O'Brien at home - the loft of a converted farmhouse that he shares in the coastal town of Malahide to the north of Dublin - revealing a single-minded artist at the peak of his already considerable songwriting powers. It encompasses the various shades of feeling - desire, obsession, lust, loneliness and confusion, and deeper into philosophical and existential territory, across a cast of lovers, friends, family and even strangers. Backing up his supple and emoting vocal and guitar is the subtlest palate of instrumentation - piano, Mellotron (which accounts for the album's occasional horn and cello tones) and brushes. O'Brien plays every instrument on these exquisite, melodic songs in a sparse, spacious, acoustic-leaning fashion.  

Other Music worth a mention:


Shayne Ward
Shayne Ward releases Closer , his first album in four years, in April 2015. The Manchester-born and bred star has sold over 3 million albums, achieved 14 platinum discs and clocked up #1 albums in 9 countries. Shayne is, still to this date, the most successful solo male X Factor winner.

Making Life Rhyme

Making Life Rhyme is Lulu’s first ever complete collection of self-penned songs and her first new album in over a decade. Recorded in London, the album is highly personal and confessional, featuring the tracks Faith in You, The Answer is Love, Hypnotised and Cry.
