Packed up in a crowded store near stacks of records, all nodding your heads to the beat. What better than live music at the record store? Sounds Haarlem presents two instores during Haarlem Vinyl Festival. On Sunday afternoon, The Irrational Library will bring their music to the store.
The Irrational Library
"In a world seemingly gone crazy a bit of good old common sense is as necessary as a simple cup of black coffee." A random quote out of the ether but one that could define the sound, the style and craftmanship of The Irrational Library. Based on a foundation of groove set forth by Mishal Zeera on the bass guitar and Lars van der Weiden on drums; this sets the locomotive in motion for the guitar and baritone sax of Tom de Haan to build upon. A sonic sound that continues to search in between the lines, to reach where most musician dare not to dwell. A musical landscape so familiar yet fresh and new for these times. And always waiting and watching, ready to jump that train are the poetic and socially zoomed in words of Joshua Baumgarten. With a voice that echoes out while reaching in, Baumgarten speaks to the world at large and the alone within. The Irrational Library is a rock n roll band that does not necessarily recreate the musical wheel but had figured out a way to stand apart and spin that wheel at its own tempo. Catch The Irrational Library live to feel it in your gut, buy the record and stream it at home, in the car, while caught up on the train, tram or dentist. The Irrational Library is there for you and is waiting patiently to get down with you.
