Cork, County Cork
Following their self-titled debut album released in December 2007, The Shed returned with a collection of 13 tracks entitled 'Goldfish Love'. As the album title suggests a somewhat skewed perspective is emitted through the fish-eyed lens of this six-piece from Cork. Over the course of 60 minutes the band traverses diverse pathways including a road trip that ends in alien abduction [The Cliffs], an homage to the inventor of the lava lamp [Craven Walker], the guilty pleasures of homemade jam [Rory’s Homemade Jam], the serenity of eternal love [Goldfish Love], subconscious immolation [Wildfire], social networking satire [Friends on MySpace], an urban mystic [The Weatherman] and the ages of man [7 Songs]. Add to this a dash of The Shed’s array of musical styles from dreamy pop to raucous rock, acoustic folk to a healthy dose of cosmic wig outs; put it in a bowl and stir it up and you’ve got an aural fruit cocktail ripe for tasting.
