    BROAD BEAN BAND’S FIVE-TRACK SHUFFLE

    Broad Bean Band (Clovisse Ferguson and Andrew Phillpott) divide their time between West Cork, Ireland and Berlin, Germany. Their debut album, Broad Bean Band, released on Music_Laden on the 18th February is the culmination of a year spent farming in Cork and making music at the old GDR broadcasting building in Berlin. This week’s Five-Track Shuffle comes from Andrew and Clovisse.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING & CAT DOWLING

    Taking any sort of a different approach to making music these days is a pretty difficult thing to do, but Public Service Broadcasting have managed it. Using their imagination and samples from Public information films, they’ve come up with something quite special on their debut album ‘Inform Educate Entertain’.

    Cat Dowling used to be vocalist with Alphastates for many years. ‘The Believer’ is her debut solo album, which is quite a statement! Dowling brings us well crafted songs brought to us through a voice that has never sounded better.
