Hear an astonishingly beautiful album that helps transform notions of "traditional Irish music." Featuring a lineup with a singer, two fiddles, guitar and piano, The Gloaming is an all-star ensemble, featuring guitarist Dennis Cahill, fiddler Martin Hayes, pianist Thomas Bartlett (a.k.a. Doveman) and more.
The bracingly political Florida punk band's new album can't help but feel like a debut: It's the group's first album since singer Tom Gabel (now Laura Jane Grace) came out as transgender. She still barks her lyrics with fiercely assertive intelligence, with the added benefit of comfort and courage in her own skin.
