Description

'Still The Heart' is an EP featuring four new recordings from The Phil Langran Band following up on the wonderful album 'Jukebox Love Songs, Leaving Blues, Border Crossings & Lovers' Laments' - "a warm intelligent set of songs" (Ian Sinclair, Morning Star). Phil Langran's songs are a powerful combination of immediacy and slow-burning subtlety. Their melodies instantly take up residence in the mind while the lyrics pack a considerable emotional punch. This is set off to great effect by Phil's line in dry, laconic humour which accompanies the live show. The songs and lyrics are masterpieces of succinctness - all coming in around the three minute mark - and seem to work effortlessly on several levels, belying the craftsmanship that has gone into their making. Phil is not only a fine musician but also a writer steeped in the poetic traditions of Robert Lowell and Langston Hughes. The result is a brilliant intertwining of Americana, Celtic, folk and blues themes in distinctive original songs. Like all the best songwriters, Phil has created his own genre, where Harlem nights and New York cityscapes rub shoulders with the West coast of Ireland and scenes from Werner Herzog's films, and none of them seems out of place.
