Irish alt-folk and electronica alchemist Seamus Fogarty presents The Curious Hand, his first album for Domino and follow-up to his 2012 full-length debut God Damn You Mountain and 2015 EP Ducks and Drakes. The Curious Hand was produced by Fogarty and Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Wild Beasts) who also plays on the album. Other notable players include Emma Smith on a plethora of instruments (violin, clarinet, bass to name a few), Rozi Plain (backing vocals), Aram Zarikian (drums) and Seamus' brother John Fogarty (accordion). Originally from County Mayo on the west coast of Ireland, Fogarty now resides in London, and the capital provides the canvas for The Curious Hand. It also showcases Seamus' natural inclination to take his songs and "screw them up," by applying synthesizer drones and circuit burps, found sounds and spoken-word audio samples that give all of his records such wonderful atmosphere, as if they're haunted by rogue half-tuned signals from another world. 180g vinyl with printed insert and download card.
