Fionn Regan - Radio RTÉ1 Session

Fionn Regan is a chap hailing from County Wicklow, Ireland, who gained a fair bit of attention with his 2006 album 'The End of History'. Since we're all hip young gun-slingers here, I'm sure everyone's well aware of that album and it's own particular virtues (it was nominated for a Mercury award after all, guys). This post gives you a couple of new tracks he recently did for an Irish radio station, both of which are excellent. As it's a one-man and a guitar affair, the songcraft is really on display here, and it fucking shines. If the rest of his next album is as good as this, then I'm sure he'll garner a fair bit more attention; and fairplay to the guy, he deserves it.
