    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: LETHAL DIALECT X JACKNIFE J, PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL, & ANALOGUE WAVE

     




    It’s that time of year again where there is a big influx of new music. One of the best albums to arrive this month (or this year even) is ‘1988’ from Lethal Dialect X Jacknife J. It’s been an album that has been two years in the making, and you can hear the care and detail that has gone into it. It tips its hat to classic Hip Hop, and is steeped with realism and no shortage of humour.

    Releasing two albums on the same day isn’t the most advisable thing to do, but if anyone can get away with it, it would be Prince. ‘Plectrumelectrum’ finds him teaming up with 3RDEYEGIRL, and bringing us one of his strongest albums in many, many years.

    Formed less than three years ago, Analogue Wave don’t hang about. 2013 saw the Dublin duo release their debut album, and they’ve promptly followed that with their second. ‘Cashmir’ carries on from where ‘NLG WV’ concluded, and finds the duo using some new tricks, and making more inspired songs.

    BURIED TREASURE – ‘MONO BAND’ BY MONO BAND

     




    During some downtime, Noel Hogan of The Cranberries went off and made one of the most overlooked albums that you could possibly come across. Made under the name Mono Band, Hogan enlisted a list of guests, which were as diverse as the sound of the album. Dan features tracks from ‘Mono Band’ (2005) all this week on The Alternative.
