Lemonade & Buns was Kíla’s follow-up album from the hit album Tóg é go Bog é and is now available once more.

The album was written on the road while Kíla were introducing audiences to Tóg é go Bog é. It has a harder edge to it than Tóg é, a feeling of being on the move, a restlessness yet a strong presence of unity and togetherness. It was recorded in the west of Ireland where the band decamped to for a month, taking a break from the road. It was subsequently mixed in the creative environs of the now sadly closed, Liffey Arts Research Centre – a hub of creative activity where science collided with the arts.

The album featured guest appearances by guitar maestros Steve Cooney and Jeff Lang, whose recent album, Carried in Mind, won the Aria award for Best Country & Blues Album for 2012. It also featured the track An Tiománaí, a dense, hard-driven song which became the template for Kíla’s collaborative single with Japanese guitar-hero, Hiroshie Yamaguchi in 2005.

Brass lines, fiddle lines, joyous singing, pipes, flutes, whistles, percussion abounding the album was described by the online site The Session as being ‘ leaps and bounds above all the pop monotony today.’
