The dark strings sound a little like the "House of Cards" opening. 
Saw these guys at a free music festival many years ago. They were off the hook.
Don't know if that was a patriotic tribute made on purpose, but the singing slightly reminds me of early Simple Minds. Excellent tune anyway.

I like Afro Celt quite a bit.  But give me a few beers, Delhi 2 Dublin playing at warp speed in the festival party room, and I'm in pretty much bliss

 
Good call. Usually ACSS are a bit more 'spacey' than D2D, but in this song they've gone the full Indian hog.

For those wondering about D2B, have a neb at their website or track them down on Soundcloud. Well worth finding if you like your Bhangra Celtic-flavoured.
Pinkish, progressive. I like it a great deal.
This is irritating the shit outta me, and nothing happens when I press PSD.  Help!
May be my mood cause the sound in most of this set has gotten under my skin…gratingly tinny at times

It's possible that they may have recorded it for someone other than you.

So yah.

And up goes the volume control from 3 to 11.
Extremely good.
I love how Bill shows not only the average rating, but also the histogram so we can see the distribution...they often tell very different stories!

A tad off-topic there, Lazarus. As it happens, in Scottish Gaelic "lagan" means 'hollow', and is common amongst Highland placenames. See the excellent site Ainmean-àite na h-Alba (Placenames of Scotland). As the celtic section of the Afro-Celts are Irish or Scottish, I think it's more likely that it's this meaning of "lagan" that the song's about.

Email exchange between Edward Snowden and former GOP Senator Gordon Humphrey

Former two-term GOP Senator Gordon Humphrey of New Hampshire emailed Edward Snowden yesterday—

Mr. Snowden,

Provided you have not leaked information that would put in harms way any intelligence agent, I believe you have done the right thing in exposing what I regard as massive violation of the United States Constitution.

Having served in the United States Senate for twelve years as a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, the Armed Services Committee and the Judiciary Committee, I think I have a good grounding to reach my conclusion.

I wish you well in your efforts to secure asylum and encourage you to persevere...

 
Really really good stuff !

Although there is no credit given to PG, this cd is on his REALWORLD label and he sings and plays on track three "When Your Falling"
 
IIRC there's full credit given to Peter Gabriel on the CD cover (I'll have a look when I get home), and he was the Afro-Celt's miwife. This is acknowledged on the Wikipedia entry.
