Guggenheim Grotto - Her Beautiful Ideas

Uniquely named band, Guggenheim Grotto, hails from Dublin Ireland. Kevin May (vocals, guitar, keyboard), Mick Lynch (vocals, guitar, bass, viola) played together in Dublin and soon recruited Shane Power (drums, keyboard) who helped with the band's first EP. As you can see each member of the trio is multi-instrumental.

You can hear this multi-instrumentalism in their 2005 debut release, …Waltzing Alone. The self-released album garnered critical acclaim in their native Ireland. After touring extensively in the US for several years, playing at SXSW, performing in every venue from listening rooms to large festivals and doing interviews and performances on small radio programs to nationally syndicated shows like Charleston's Mountain Stage radio/TV show, they built up a large faithful U.S. following.

After all this touring, they did not take a break, going back to the studio and recording their follow up, Happy the Man. This release shows how their sounds has expanded as they delve into more sampling and electronic techniques.

Her Beautiful Ideas is a fantastic tune off this sophomore release.
