    K-X-P IN THE RTE 2FM SESSION & INTERVIEW – MONDAY, MAY 13

    They were in Ireland recently, and dropped in to record a session, and have a chat with Dan on The Alternative. The Finnish band released their second album ‘II’ in March, which may well be a contender for album of the year when we get to that time of year. They’ve been described as ‘Experimental Electro-Rock’ and krautrock, but whatever you want to categorise them as, their tunes just work!

    JOHNNY CASH – BACK & FORTH – TUESDAY, MAY 14

    So much has been said and written about Johnny Cash, there really isn’t anything that you can add. His music speaks for itself. On this week’s Back & Forth, Dan will play tracks from various stages of the great man’s career.

    LOW SEA’S FIVE-TRACK SHUFFLE – WEDNESDAY, MAY 15

    The Waterford-based Liverpudlian/Bosnian two-piece are Billie (Vox & Synth) and Bobby D (Synth, Guitar, Vox, & Noise). They have already made a name for themselves, but their new album 'Remote Viewing' is set to bring this to a much higher level. With the help of the renowned Stephen Hague (who's worked with Pet Shop Boys, New Order, Afro Celt Sound System, PIL, Sparks, etc.), Low Sea's brand of 'Narcotic Pop' will impress just about anyone. This week’s Five-Track Shuffle comes from Low Sea.

    SIINAI LIVE AT THE EURSONIC FESTIVAL – THURSDAY, MAY 16

    Finnish band Siinai released their debut album ‘Olympic Games ‘ in 2011 - a synthesized wall of sound and huge krautrock hymns with giant hooks. These Finns are masters of building up songs that reach an ecstatic climax, and, if there were medals for music, Siinai would have won Gold. They proved this with their mammoth performance at the Vera venue in Groningen in January at The Eurosonic festival.

    Recorded at the Eurosonic Festival on January 10, 2013 for the Eurosonic Partnership of the EBU.
