This Friday, September 18th, Anderson will release his long-awaited debut album Patterns; self-recorded and arranged the record in a studio he built himself in the back of his garden.
The Dublin musician and songwriter has long been a firm favourite around these parts, and with good reason; his beautiful and meticulously crafted lush folk sounds, with classic ‘60s/’70s pop melodies, are simply irresistible. Unfortunately not everyone is acutely aware of Anderson’s talents, so with the album done and dusted, and in keeping with the DIY approach, he decided on a novel approach to selling his new record. Armed with vinyl copies of Patterns, Anderson took to the streets of Dublin, going door-to-door to try and sell the album to the public. The result is a heartwarming and very entertaining (and very amusing) eight minutes – and worth every second. The video is by Colm Russell, who’s also responsible for previous Anderson videos, including the wonderful ‘Patterns’ below.
Anderson is playing a special launch show in Tower Records, Dublin on Saturday, September 19th@ 1pm. He’s also playing Coughlan’s in Cork on October 9th, and the Unitarian Church in Dublin on October 16th. You can check out a snippet from when Anderson came to Newbridge, video by Stephen Connelly.
