Fontaines D.C. – Skinty Fia – Deluxe Edition, 2XLP with Bonus Signed Print, Sticker, Button
Used colloquially as an expletive, the title roughly translates from the Irish language into English as ‘the damnation of the deer’; the spelling crassly anglicized, and it’s meaning diluted through generations. Part bittersweet romance, part darkly political triumph – the songs ultimately form a long-distance love letter, one that laments an increasingly privatized culture in danger of going the way of the extinct Irish giant deer. Double-LP on 45rpm 180gm black vinyl, housed in a gatefold jacket with printed inner sleeves. Alternate cover artwork & 20 page lyric book.
