, Waterford musician Peter Vogelaar drops summer conceptual album, watch the new video

The Waterford musician and producer Peter Vogelaar released an eclectic album called The Science Of Summer which features guests Deaf Joe, Katie Kim, Cat Dowling, Ken Lally, Susan O’Neill & Aisling Browne.

“I wanted to make an electronica/folktronica album, loosely conceptual, that captured the energy and atmosphere of a summers day. The real obstacle was trying to give the album a continuity with all these guest vocalists who had their own personality and flavour. I went back to a lot of the internal sounding albums that turned me onto music years ago by Nick Drake, Linda Perhacs, Sandy Denny and John Martyn – but at the same time I was soaking up a lot of (mostly) instrumental music that had a sort of awareness to it, producers like Gold Panda, Lapalux and Bonobo.”

As a taster, get a load of the video for ‘Television’ which features Ken Lally on vocals.

Vogelaar also plays bass with the Dead Heavys.
