Ballyturk, the new album out now

Ballyturk, the new album out now!

Ballyturk is the new album by Teho Teardo, his first release after Still Smiling, the succesful collaboration with Blixa Bargeld.
Ballyturk is the music for the new incredible play of Enda Walsh, one of the most interesting writers of our time. Enda Walsh wrote also Hunger, Steve McQueen’s movie. Now the play will be in London at the National Theatre.
But the music for Ballyturk isn’t simply a soundtrack, it’s an album that has it’s own life built around magnetic strings, atmospheric cellos, Teho’s unique guitar and electronics.
Some great musicians played on this album: Joe Lally, Fugazi’s bass player, Lori Goldston who added layes of her amplified cello. Lori played with Nirvana and Earth. Another great cellist on this album is Nick Holland from the Balanescu Quartet.
Ballyturk is a very powerful album, the cinematic element of this music reveals its closeness to the darkest nighths on earth.
