    GROUSE IN RTE 2FM SESSION – MONDAY, MARCH 25

    Grouse is the work of Dublin, Ireland native, Ronan Carroll. It is an outlet for his electronic, dub and ambient influenced productions. Carroll’s music, under the name, Grouse, is in his own words “Full of contradictions: dark yet soothing, electronic yet organic, spacey yet focused."

    Grouse's 'Heads' was one of the best albums released in the year 2012. This session was recorded for The Alternative earlier this month.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – DEPECHE MODE, AND SO I WATCH YOU FROM AFAR, & BOMBINO

    We have three Albums Of The Week this week. Depeche Mode are back with album number 13 ‘Delta Machine’. Dave Gahan summed it up by saying; “With this release we’ve completely shifted our idea of how to create an album. When we hit a wall where we realize the album is beginning to sound too normal, we’ll mess it up and really give it that organic Depeche Mode Sound. ‘Delta Machine’ is no different, and I can’t wait for all of our fans to hear it.”

    And So I Watch You From Afar create a wonderful wall of noise, but with ‘All Hail Bright Futures’, they show us a slightly different side. Don’t worry, there’s no power ballads here, just the sound of a band who are coming into their prime.

    If you’re a fan of Tinariwen, you’ll love ‘Nomad’ from Bombino. The Tuareg guitarist has teamed up with The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach (as producer) of his second international album 'Nomad'. The swirling, hypnotic sounds created on this album are incredible, making it at certainty for one of the albums of 2013.
