ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Imagine a ride back to a distant past, where the west was yet to be won. Savor the smell of sagebrush and gunpowder as the Indulgers unfold their new musical journey "Out In The West".

Inspired by the bands western travels and stories of their forefathers, "Out In The West" taps into the spirit of the old west through the eyes of the Celtic immigrant. Breaking new musical frontiers by blending their Celtic heritage signature sound with America's "amber waves of grain" the Indulgers create a panoramic musical adventure of the old west and it's changes.

"Out In The West" takes you by the reigns beginning with the upbeat toe tapping "Park City Silver" into the gun slinging epic "High Noon". Track 3 "Cheyenne" pays homage to the men who laid the rail. The songs sing of a time that was wild and lawless delivering a Celtic sound inspired by the western landscape.

During the past eight years, The Indulgers (Damien McCarron - vocals/guitar, Renee Fine - fiddle, Mike Nile - vocals/guitar/mandolin/accordion/whistle/pipes, Pat Murphy - drums, and Chris Murtaugh - bass) toured the country extensively from their western base of Golden/Boulder Colorado. After several east coast tours the band concentrated on the roads less traveled in the west and began creating the music for their 6th CD. Deadwood, Rapid City, South Dakota; Cheyenne, Gillette, Wyoming; Chadron, Nebraska and Cripple Creek, Black Hawk, Durango, Colorado became Indulger territory along with larger cities like Las Vegas, Denver, Kansas City and San Francisco.

Family stories and old letters passed down provided inspiration for the telling in the songs. "Out In the West" speaks of a period of history where the new America was wide open to all and the possibilities seemed endless on a new frontier. There's pride in those stories and letters, and in these songs. Pride for the people with ancestors that blazed a trail out into the west and the immigrants that gave life, sweat and blood to create the dreams of a new nation.

Engineered and produced by veteran team Mike Nile and Neale Heywood(Fleetwood Mac) the band sounds as tight and punchy as ever. Heywood continues to guest as the sixth member of the Indulgers and contributes guitar and organ to the Celt/rock sound. So…saddle up! Join the Indulgers for a wild-west ride and through their new thirteen-song masterpiece "Out In The West".

Western Celtic Music-Brillant-Amazing-A must have!

John Grose

Music the color of a Colorado sunset!
The world's premier purveyors of Rocky Mountain celtic rock are back with an album which deftly mixes celtic rhythms with the soul of western ballads.

The Indulger's latest offering, Out in the West, manages to be different from their previous work without being a departure. Fans will recognize the band's signature enthusiam and innovative style - one track, for example, utilizes a didgeridoo while another makes use of sythesized bagpipes - as they explore western motifs and themes only hinted at in previous work.

Indulgers fans already know that they cannot go wrong purchasing any new album. Simply put, they are "must buys" which are guaranteed to be worth their sticker price. However, Out in the West, with its tonal panoramas that remind the listener of red-orange Colorado sunsets, is an offering with wide appeal. It's fusion of celtic underpinnings, rock 'n' roll tempo, and western subject matter finds a stable balance that any music lover should add to his or her collection.

They came to Ireland with me
I took my newly received CD to Ireland with me to listen to in the various hotels. I had relied on the radio for the car trips. Little did I know that the radio stations would be so shyte, so basically the many hours travelling were shared between this CD and Barry Mccabe's. Had a healthy overdose of those 2, but we didn't mind, it's really great stuff, must look into other CD's of theirs.

Indulgers produce a unique blend of Celtic and the old west
The long awaited “Out In The West” has finally been released to anxious fans, all curious of how Nile & McCarron could put together their classic Celtic/Irish tunes with something that sounded western. Well, I was amazed to hear that not only did they manage it, they have created a whole new sound for music lovers. The tunes often have a bit of a jig to them, certainly enough to remind you that this is a Celtic Band and making you want to dance. Then you start listening to the lyrics and find a whole different story being told.

As a Floridian who fell in love with the Southwest and made the move west 4 years ago, I have often pondered the hardships and impossible challenges our ancestors braved in order to climb mountains and crawl through canyons with the barest of essentials. What made them press on? Listen to this CD and you begin to get an idea. Both Damien and Mike wrote their share of lyrics and both seem to have a handle on exactly how it felt to trudge on by wagon day after day or work in the brutal sun building rails so that the next settlers would have it a little easier.

My two favorite songs are “High Noon ” and “Journey West”. “High Noon” is about a homesick young man who travels from his home country to find his fortune, only to become a gunfighter in order to live. My interpretation of “The Journey West” is a melodic, dreamy song of hope for what might be. Another terrific song, but I think better performed live, is Cheyenne. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of hearing these three.

Mike Nile sings the title song and gives it the perfect touch of old west huskiness.

I must admit that when I first heard of the concept of this CD, I was throughly confused and although I love all types of music and The Indulgers are at the top of my list of favorites, I almost dreaded hearing it. What if I didn’t like it? Or worse, what if I hated it? At first hearing, however, I was blown away by not just how good it is, but how unique the sound and concept are. This CD deserves to be heard far and wide. It could actually be the start of a whole new genre of music. Call your local radio stations, check the website for info on videos, pass the word on. You will never find another one like "Out In The West".
