From Icelandic electronic/folk/avant-garde label Bedroom Community which houses Nico Mulhy, Valgeir Sigurösson and Ben Frost, comes Vermont’s Sam Amidon whose fluttering avant-country folk gels into a lovely noise, justifiably comparable to Nick Drake thanks to Amidon’s singing voice.
Both Mulhy and Sigurösson who collaborated with Amidon on his recent All is Well album which is well worth a look-in but the real reason I’m posting this is because Sam is playing a couple of impromptu Irish shows this week and next in and around his ATP performance. Wednesday this week he plays The Cobblestone in Smithfield, tickets are just €5, doors at 9pm. He also has some Cork shows next week full details of which are below including a fiddle performance, a Plugd instore and a gig at Debarras – all next week. He also plays here with Phosphorescent in June. Sam is on Twitter.
