After an incredible gig here early last year, we are delighted to welcome back Trick Mist to plugd for his belated vinyl release show.

Support from Mark Waldron Hyden.

Trick Mist is Irish songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Gavin Murray.

His arsenal of original samples and storytelling lyrics combined with gestures towards traditional Irish music and experimental electronics create a captivating, immersive and meditative musical space.

His second full-length album The Hedge Maze and The Spade was released in Sept 2022 via Pizza Pizza Records. A contemplative collection of songs crafted by Murray after the death of his 96 year old grandmother. Lyrically rich and highly visual, the album moves the listener through an exploratory journey comprised of the familiar and the strange. A landscape in which personal memory and imagination together carve an image of universal hope.

The album received widespread critical acclaim, with Hotpress describing it as “a sonic storybook lush with detail … sounds that command all five senses.” Headstuff praising “a remarkably atmospheric and reflective album … meticulously layered and steeped in catharsis. Its unearthly qualities are grounded by both familiar sounds and familial themes, rendering it simultaneously challenging yet attainable. An album that rewards its listener, revealing more of itself with every listen.” The Thin Air hailed the album as “Murray’s most assured compositions to date.” Both The Thin Air and Headstuff featured the album on their ‘Best Irish Album of the Year’ lists.
