Oisin Leech :: Cold Sea

Oisin Leech is an Irish singer-songwriter who had his brush with commerce with the 1990s band 747s and a more ruminative sort of acclaim with the Lost Brothers, his folk duo with Mark McCausland “October Sun.” Cold Sea is his first solo album, and while you might miss the Lost Brothers’ shadowy harmonies on it, he is not exactly alone.

Indeed, on the translucent opener “Cold Sea,” both producer Steve Gunn and long-time collaborator M. Ward lend a hand, and later, Dylan bassist Tony Garnier turns up for some lovely acoustic low-end.
