    ADRIAN CROWLEY’S FIVE-TRACK SHUFFLE – WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27

    For many years Adrian Crowley was overlooked in his native Ireland, but his stock rose considerable when he won the Choice Music Prize for his 2009 album ‘Season Of The Spark’. He’s released six studio albums; the most recent of these is ‘I See Three Birds Flying’, which came out last year.

    This week, Adrian brings us the Five-Track Shuffle.

    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.
