Cian Nugent is a dream on guitar.

Cian Nugent is a dream on guitar.

I’ve been singing the praises of Matador Records “Singles Going Home Alone” 7″ Record Club since its inception a year and a half ago, and Matador’s yet to disappoint me with a record. It’s not too late to join and catch-up on 2013, and it’s a worthy investment. The records are only available through the club, and often become very collectable, and I assume “Hire Purchase” will become such a record – it’s bonkers good.

Cian Nugent is a guitarist and composer from Dublin, Ireland who plays some of the most passionate and beautiful guitar I’ve heard in a long, long time. I was organizing and listening to my records yesterday afternoon and played “Hire Purchase” for the first time and was completely and utterly leveled. The thoughtful musicianship presented was breathtaking, and I sure as hell hope there’s more records planned with him and The Cosmos – “Hire Purchase” may be my favorite song thus far in 2013.

Not since hearing the guitar playing of Jack Rose have I been in such complete awe of a guitar players tone and presence, and I’ll be diving into other works of his for sure, judge for yourself below, it’s a beautiful burn.
