ANTIPODEAN TROUBADOUR FLIES SOLO.
"An 11-song opus that lovers of Social Distortion, Drive-By Truckers and mid-period Gaslight Anthem, will clutch to their hearts, it's a wonderfully ragged rock record, full of warmth. 'Carry Me Home', in particular, is a huge highlight. Telling the tale of Purcell's trip from Oz to Tipperary (and tipping his cap to the area's most famous song along the way), it's an impassioned, unforgettable folk-rocker. Other highlights, meanwhile, include The Byrds-tinged 'A Walk into Town' and the Beatles-style pop number 'Graves Of The Leinstermen".
