Brady Hits Indie Chart

Paul Brady's Hooba Dooba has debuted in the Irish Indie Charts at No. 3 this week.

The album, Brady's first in five years, has been highly acclaimed, with hugely positive reviews in the UK Independent and the Belfast Telegraph, among others, following Niall Stokes' endorsement of the album with a rave review in Hot Press.

Other newcomers in the Irish Indie chart include former Eurovision winner Paul Harrington, whose album Songs enters the charts at No.5; Crystal Swing, whose 2009 album The Best Years of Our Lives is at No.15; and Vivienne Long, whose Caterpillar Sarabande is at No.17.

The Irish Indie Charts made their own debut today, featuring for the first time on hotpress.com. The new charts will feature every Friday from now on. To access the charts in full, go to 'Indie Charts' on the left hand navigation bar, or click here

Smile

The return of one of the country’s finest songwriters, ‘Smile’ is the first single to be lifted from Brady’s forthcoming Say What You Feel album. On first listen it sounds like something that Van Morrison might write. As Brady songs go, it’s not far removed from his most recent output. There’s nothing uniquely special about it and it’s certainly not one of his best.

Say What You Feel

According to my calculations, Paul Brady celebrates forty years as a professional musician this year. You certainly wouldn’t think so – looking at the fresh-faced (and decidedly blonder than usual) chap staring out from the cover of his first album since 2001’s Oh What A World. And if his gruelling touring schedule is anything to go by (he treks around the US in Feb followed by an Irish/UK tour) the man from Strabane shows little sign of slowing down.
