Derry’s Our Krypton Son, aka Chris McConaghy, has today released a thing of immense beauty with his sophomoric effort Fleas & Diamonds. A singer-songwriter in the truest sense of the craft, McConaghy traverses 12 tracks of intense personal reflection and emotional evaluation, tied together in arrangements that are as sweeping as they are melodic. A deft lyricist, this second LP from Our Krypton Son juxtaposes warmth with occasionally cool-on-the-ear chord progressions, that makes for a compelling and truly engaging listen.
