Lau  - Lightweights & Gentlemen mp3 album

Their first album as a trio is a bracing blend of traditional and modern elements - the reel and jig sets have a traditional form but all consist of modern compositions by one or another of the musicians in the band, and most of them (notably O'Rourke's "Hinba" and Drever's slightly jazzy "Waiting for the Results") have.

Posted by TimBuk2 12 years ago. Fantastic album although definately not for the ultra-purists - It is too much fun!! Posted by Alistair 12 years ago. Magnificent. This should be "Lightweights and Gentlemen" rather than "Gentleman". Posted by futureoutro 8 years ago. Dog and the Rabbit.

This 2007 release is the first album from & supergroup LAU. I put folk into inverted commas as they are so much more than that. Consisting of Kris Drever, Aidan O'Rourke and Martin Green, I genuinely think that they are one of the most exciting things on the music scene at the moment.
