irish musician and songwriter brendan tiernan sent me a sparse email with the song below and little else to introduce MFOA to his talents. 'storm' is a quiet and pretty finger-plucked ballad, with a medieval-meets-eastern sound that reminds me a little bit of late 60's british folk explorers like C.O.B. and the incredible string band.
there are a few other songs on his youtube channel, 'weaver', electrified and with a bit more percussion, i liked quite a bit. there is a range of sounds expressed in tiernan's music, painting a varied picture of hushed and stately psychedelia.
i couldn't find any other links for brendan's tunes, so enjoy them on youtube for now.
