The Rye is a raw and energetic 5 piece, hailing all the way to the U.S. from Ireland. Their sound is no doubt Irish, full of danceable percussion, Celtic ferocity, and enough auxiliary instrumentation to put a smile on anyone's face.
Their self-titled 6 track e.p. is raw enough and "live" enough, that you'll feel like you're sitting in the same room with these guys. Its a true delight.
The strongest track is Fishin', a funky, bluesy, Irish song working from a simple riff that spouts stellar musicianship. The band clearly works together to create this song.
So if you're into Irish music or just want something a little different, check out The Rye (www.therye.ie).
