Ian Whitty and the Exchange first album in eight years

What you may need to know…

01. Corkman Ian Whitty and collaborators the Exchange return for his first record in eight years, the wonderfully-monikered Cash Crop.

02. Recorded as live in various spaces around the city, including Bhailiú/Elastic Sleep man Chris Somers’ One Chance Out studio, the album’s production and mix was also a collaborative effort, between Somers, the band and producer Steve Fanagan.

03. Streaming above is the video for Bottom Line, the album’s lead-off single.

04. Launching Cash Crop tonight at Coughlan’s, kicking off the IMRO-award winners’ Jazz Weekend proceedings. Kickoff 9pm, a tenner in.

Verdict: Keenly-aware pop with a folkish tinge, with absolutely nothing having been lost during Cash Crop‘s lengthy process.
