17/8/14 – Blaudzun – Promises Of No Man’s Land – 2014

Blaudzun PicBlaudzun is the stage name for Dutch singer songwriter Johannes Sigmond and this song, recorded live at The Paradiso Club in Amsterdam is the title track from his fourth album. With mad hair, exceptional glasses, a 10 piece band and a memorable voice, the sound is hard to categorize but it’s something like an early Waterboys, This Is The Sea, A Pagan Place era and if Mike Scott hadn’t decided to follow the Irish folk direction. The album entered the Dutch Chart at No.1 on release (No.6 in Belgium) – the project seems to be little known anywhere else.
