Ahead To The Sea - Urban Pirate Soundsystem (2005)

From last.fm:

"Accordions are for Bavarian Humpa Bands? Violins are for a little nice and boring Girls ? Not when AHEAD TO THE SEA are entering the stage!This is the new band of the Singer of Across the Border (RIP)!Riverdance on Speed, with hard Guitars and a great Rhythm-Section, spiced with some cool Dub, the spirit and sound of Punk and some hot Ska Beats. That is their sound and they call it: Folk Punk.Great Lyrics about Unfairness, Fight and Love, Happiness and Pain without beeing a teacher.The heart is on the left side…!A Must have for fans of The Pogues or newer bands like Flogging Molly!"

Ahead To The Sea's rich Celtic heritage is the foundation of what this band stands for. Rounding out the elements of punk rock, folk, and traditional Celtic music, is a specialty that they deliver. The warm melodies of tracks like "Drifting Away" and "Mind In Fear" will have you coming back for more. This is paddy at it's finest and it only gets better when you listen to this album. The band also incorporates a very minuscule part of their music into the ska scene, which brings out a familiar, fun sound with some dub bassline. If it's one of those days where you need some beers and few friends to make you feel better, you mind as well put on this album because it'll make you feel something else.
