During the latest podcast, I mentioned that Sinkane had first featured on Nialler9 in 2009, eons ago in blog terms for sure. But here’s someone who can beat that. Sundernix is the name of the project by Liam Trappe, a Kildare-born musician who first featured here back in 2007 as The 64 Tide (the post even has a Bebo link !!!). Shortly after that, he started working on what was to become the Sundernix album. Well, Trappe has taken his time constructing an album’s worth of material and it’s finally ready to be released in March 2013.
‘Brasserie’ is the opening track from the album, a sweeping orchestral introduction to the album’s lush instrumentation; as intricate and well-constructed as an album which took five years to make should sound. It’s a free download if you pay with a tweet on his site or on Bandcamp for €1.
The name SunderNix comes Sunder Nix, a 1984 US Olympics gold medalist in the men’s 4×400 meter relay.
Sundernix features guest musicians from Kildare including Gavin Elsted (We Are Losers / Adultrock), Stephen Fahey (Super Extra Bonus Party), Patrick Hopkins (Sive), Claire Prendergast and Niall O’ Sullivan. For the purposes of honesty and clarity: I’ve known Liam through other friends for since 2005 or so.
