  2. pinned-to-the-wind asked: Hi, I love your blog! :) I hear the Apparatchik lyrics slightly different, I got: 1) 'black berets' instead of 'blackberries' (as it's together with jeans), 2) 'From the glue for your tit tape' instead of 'from the gloom for your tip tape' ('cause you can get high from glue and you need it for tit tape!), 3) 'these cars' instead of 'these colours', 4) 'high rise hoping, you steal my gains' instead of 'open' and 'gage', 5) 'in charge' instead of 'a child'. I may be wrong, feel free to ignore! :)

    Thanks for the compliment, glad you like our blog :)
    Those lyrics do make a lot more sense than what we wrote down, so thank you for that! We’ve made some changes to the lyrics posted before :)

     
  3. Anonymous asked: Do you know where I could find the lyrics to the song Apparatchik? Thank you!

    Hello! So far, we weren’t able to find any official lyrics to Apparatchik yet, so we wrote the lyrics out for you :)

    House always wins
    So don’t cry, cry
    Down like water
    Down like sand
    Got to try, ‘cause I
    I am an old dog
    This is a new trick
    I won’t look down, down
    Apparatchik

    These are the punches that we roll with
    This is the shit
    When it’s so much easier to stomach it
    I’m downwind of you

    Black berets and blue jeans
    A wry smile, a smile
    From the glue
    For your tip tape
    I get high, high
    All these cars
    Have lost their soul
    In the race for the prize, compromise
    Apparatchik

    These are the punches that we roll with
    This is the shit
    When it’s so much easier to stomach it
    And I’m downwind of you

    'Cause you give good odour
    And you raise my game
    From this high rise hoping
    You steal my gains
    Stuck together with traffic jams
    Sweaty palms
    Apparatchik

    These are the punches that we roll with
    This is the shit
    When it’s so much easier to stomach it
    I’m downwind of you

    Laugh now but one day we’ll be in charge
    Laugh now but one day we’ll be in charge
    Laugh now but one day we’ll be in charge (repeated)

    There were a few words we were not entirely sure of, those are in italics. If anyone has any correction, do let us know :)

    Now with updated lyrics, thanks to pinned-to-the-wind. Thanks very much!

    Glen Hansard performs Falling Slowly

    Beautiful rendition of this song made famous by the movie Once, accompanied here by Lisa Hannigan and by the last surviving founder of The Dubliners on fiddle – John Sheahan.

    This performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall on the 10th of April 2014 was part of the celebration that marked the historic first state visit to the United Kingdom by a President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins.

     
  5. 'Glen Hansard & Guests' - The Auld TriangleMade famous by the Dubliners and written by Brendan Behan, The Auld Triangle is performed at The Royal Albert Hall in all it’s glory by a host of Irish singers and song writers.

  6. Anonymous asked: Hi miss ! I have a little request for you :) Where can I found dresses of Lisa Hannigan ? She's very lovely and I love her style ! Thanks for the answer ! (sorry for my english I'm french ^^)

    Hello! (Il n’y a pas de problème avec votre Anglais :) )

    Here are some quotes of Lisa’s about her clothes:

    I like to wear vintage a lot. Now I figured out what sort of shapes suit me. I tend to wear some sort of dresses, some 40s and 50s dresses… (from here)
    Also, whenever I go anywhere, I try to find one or two vintage clothes shops so I can get myself some dresses. (from here)
    Basically, Lisa likes wearing vintage dresses, so your best bet is to find some vintage shops that may sell second-hand clothes and look through those. We hope this helps :) And of course, if anyone else has suggestions, do submit them!
     
  7. Lisa appears on Paul Noonan’s new track “Apparatchik”:

    Here’s the first song from Paul Noonan’s Printer Clips record, Apparatchik.

     
  8. Lisa working on her third album

    HotPress featured a short article in which they interviewed Lisa a few weeks ago. In this, Lisa mentions working on her third album, and talks about the Soundings podcasts.

    About writing a new album:

    "I have good days and bad days with it," the songstress admits, "But when I’m working it’s going pretty well. I do have a good few days of not doing anything, which is hard. I’m not so good at the ‘sitting and waiting’ thing! Isolating myself a bit certainly works for me."

    As for whether there’s a tentative release date in place…

    "NOOO!" Hannigan shrieks good-naturedly. "It just depends how bloody slow I am with ol’ writing. I’d love to have one out late this year or early next year. I’m afraid to curse myself by saying anything!"

    About Soundings:
    "It has been great fun," she says of the pod. "Or had been great fun until Dyan started his new ‘Desensitisation Of Lisa’ notions [a new feature in which Haskins gets her to confront her fears, such as hanging out in a cave]. The cave… it was enjoyable in retrospect. Once I was out of the cave, I enjoyed that I’d done it! He made me go to see an actual horror theatre show last night, which was genuinely quite terrifying. But I survived that too. I think by the end of it I’m going to be pretty … hardcore!

    "I don’t know how long it’s going to go on for but it definitely seems like the better I handle it, the more they’re throwing at me. I should probably try and pretend I’m not as brave as I appear to be from the last few! I hope it lessens a bit now, it’s not really my bag to be honest. I saw The Shining and I think that’s enough for anybody!”

    Thanks ever so much to thegoodrebel10 for pointing us to this article that slipped under our radar!

  10. Since the last time we posted about it, two new episodes of soundings were put up! As always, it’s downloadable in iTunes, for those who don’t have that the link above is useful.

    About the two episodes, taken from Lisa’s facebook page:

    This week on Soundings Culture Podcast I nearly die of fright at ‘Ghost Stories’, but then the Gloaming documentary ‘Moment to Moment’, Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ and John Cleese’s lecture on creativity makes up for it.

    Eek. New Soundings Culture Podcast is up, this the ‘Desensitization of Lisa Hannigan’ portion. I didn’t think I was too sensitive!..though my squeals tell a different story.
