    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from across Europe.


    What an extraordinary album 'Alium' by Submotion Orchestra is. Extraordinary in the way that it's unlike anything else released in recent memory. It's got soul, it's got an offbeat charm, but more importantly it's got songs that you'll remember for many years.


    Jennifer Evans' debut Album 'Works From The Dip And Foul' is a statement of how talented she has become over the last number of years. There's no whiff debut jitters, just a strong group of songs, and a voice that would be hard to misplace.


    Some call him mysterious, but supremely talented might be a better description for Dean Blunt. ‘Black Metal’ is Pop music with a twist; cleverly seasoned with samples, Americana influences, and some ambient soundtrack-esque adventures.



    Portishead are a band that have carved out a sound all of their own. They have proven durable over the years, and 2008 album simply titled ‘Third’ showed that they were still a creative force. Although it was received well, it didn’t have the impact that its content suggested that it would have. It’s a hugely overlooked album, which Dan will be featuring as this week’s Buried Treasure.
