1. MUTANT SPACE

This debut album is incredibly slow moving but is also beautiful beyond words. Though his sighing, world weary voice is immediately identifiable, he also proves to be an excellent guitar picker on songs such as album opener âthereâs gold there somewhereâ and âremember when we didnât kissâ, while lushly baroque string arrangements are provided on other tracks throughout which add another layer of loveliness to the album. Clever lyrical content and carefully constructed music will not disappoint. Wise and poetic lyrics are almost a match for his mournful, yet hopeful music. There is a definite poetic elegance that is even more impressive when you consider that this is the second album from O Caoimh, that so many artists become stinted on. Not her, as the songs run seamlessly into the next. Sublime



2. FATEA MAGAZINE

I described Cormac O Caoimh's new album "A New Season For Love" as being as mellow as a rusty nail, but 140 characters weren't enough to give the explaination. If the album were a drink, the whiskey would provide the complex notes, the distinctness of the songs as they draw subtle meaning out of the flavour of the words, blending with the sweet honeyed tones of the Darmbuie to deliver an album that has an underlying strength in the harmonies and leaves you feeling that all can be right with the world. In non drinks terms, Cormac O Caoimh knows how to set a mood.



3. FOLK WORDS

Sometime front-man of The Citadels, Cormac O Caoimh has released his second solo album - âA New Season for Loveâ. Itâs a mellow wander through songs from the acoustic finger-picking, guitar-influenced mind of a man that writes soothing music for quiet introspection and words of poignant inspiration. These are songs that calm the bustle of the day and convey their listeners to some tranquil place of serenity.
Cormac delivers his carefully crafted lyrics with an unhurried, hushed and breathy style that enhances the muted presence of each song. Thereâs a suspicion of familiarity about his voice, and thatâs because itâs so easy to identify with the emotions he conjures.

The more you listen to his songs the deeper you fall under their spell â from the sparsely precise âA New Season for Loveâ through the delicate strings and softly expressed vocals of âAnd the Rain Fallsâ and âRemember When We didnât Kissâ to the deep seated enchantment of âPerfect Mistress for a Kingâ â for there is true magic here.



4. FILE UNDER GOOD MUSIC

A New Season For Love is instantly a mood changing album. Heavily reliant on the time of day and the place you press play as its as mellow as they come. Easily invoking Nick Drake's soothing vocals and echoes of Elliott Smith. The songs blend effortlessly together. With just his voice, piano and guitar throughout the album, one would hardly notice as the craft at work here is of a rare quality. Not to mention his stunning and quite sublime vocal efforts, which will ultimately be the deciding factor as to who will like and who will not this record. A bit like Marmite; It may not be everyones cup of tea as Nick Drake was not, but for those who like a strong brew; it will surely impress..



5. CORK INDEPENDENT

His new album, âA New Season for Loveâ is a natural evolution from its predecessor, âStart a Sparkâ. Those familiar with Cormacâs earlier solo work will be immediately at home. Backing himself on acoustic guitar and employing the talents of Art OâLaoire on keyboards, and Eoghan Regan on electric guitar, the arrangements are lush enough to be evocative, yet sparse enough to allow the main melody and lyrics to shine through.

The album works on a couple of levels . As chillout music, itâs effective and inobtrusive. This would be near the top of my CD pile if I was about to undertake a long drive on a busy road. To dismiss it as easy listening would be a crime however â the lyrics merit deeper scrutiny:

âRemember when we didnât kiss
Our eyes caressed instead of
Lips on lipsâ

The music, to my mind, has matured since Cormacâs last outing. Always a deft fingerstyle guitarist, this time around he explores new chords and progressions, and the album is infused with hints of Spanish in places, and some songs have an almost jazzy feel.
The themes are timeless â love, crisis, uncertainty, but Cormac puts his own spin on them all. His breathy, intimate delivery tinged with the merest hint of a Cork accent sits comfortably in a nicely executed mix. The tracks havenât been mercilessly processed â the occasional hint of sibilance, breath noise, fret buzz and squeak are left as is, and the mix is the better for it.

Cormac tells me that the album will soon be released, and heâll be touring it by late February/early March. If youâve not seen him before, check him out â I think youâll be impressed.



6. CLAIRE KANE

âA new season for loveâ is a delicate twelve track album. âGrow up, be goodâ is one of the more intriguing tracks on the album, with its mysterious and lamenting lyrics coupled with perfectly entwined guitar and piano, it is a wonderful song to listen to when relaxing.

OâCaoimhâs voice is flawless throughout, maintaining its soft and somewhat husky tone when delivering these songs of undoubted maturity. It would seem that the singer-songwriter has collected a lot of influence from both the outside world, and the music industry, as each song varies from folk to a light jazz sound, putting forth the wisdom he has gathered over the years. Particularly attention grabbing is the beautiful âcounting the raindropsâ, possibly the most tender track, on the generally tender album. There is something warming about his vocals on this track, that makes it seem as though he singing directly to the listener.
The jazz elements make it stand out among the majority of Irelandâs acoustic guitar wielding songwriters. It is the ideal de-stress album, with nothing alarming or disturbing; just pure and simple music, with meaningful and moving lyrics.



7. To U I Bestow

A New Season For Love .. "is full of slow burning mellow jazz influenced tunes which would suit most rainy afternoons sitting by a log fire!"
