I know I listen to a lot of crap. Or I should say, some of what I listen to is considered crap to a lot of you. But really now, do we need to get all apeshit over Aoife (pronounced EEE-fuh) O'Donovan? I mean look at this:
I listened to half of this record and was ready for the gas pipe halfway through that half. It's not the style or genre I have a problem with. Aoife (pronounced ooo-FAH) O'Donovan has a fine voice. It's the deadly hype combo of "nothing really new" meets "greatest thing ever" that really gnaws at me. Take a listen to Aoife (pronounced ay-OFEE) O'Donovan's lead track from "Fossils," and if you dare, a few more of the tracks either on Spotify or live on YouTube and tell me just what it is I'm missing, because this can't be a "must hear record of the summer." It can't be, damnit.
No, I am not disrespecting the beautiful Irish name.
