    THE ALTERED HOURS IN THE RTE 2FM SESSION

    There have been many excellent bands from Cork over the years; Microdisney, The Sultans Of Ping FC, The Frank & Walters, The Shades, etc. More recently names like Young Wonder, Toby Kaar, and The Karman Line have made some brilliant music.

    Add to that list The Altered Hours; a band that have just released some of the best new music 2013 has seen so far. To mark the release of their 'Sweet Jelly Roll' EP, they recorded a session for Dan. Prepare to be impressed!

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – GOLD PANDA, THE LAST SOUND, & SIGUR ROS

    Gold Panda will be back in Ireland in July for the Longitude festival. He’s just released his second album ‘Half Of Where You Live’. The Berlin-based producer has recaptured the magic that he created on his 2010 debut, while adding some new dimensions.

    Descriptions can really capture your imagination, and this one certainly sets your mind wandering; “The Last Sound's sound is pitched somewhere between electronic psyche and hypnotic dream-pop.” ‘Rainbow Xplode’ is an album of great depth, and one that you can tell that The Last Sound poured their hearts and souls into...it was worth it.

    Trying to pronounce most Sigur Ros’ albums and tracks presents some fairly unique problems. With they’re new album ‘KVEIKUR’, they’ve continued what can only be described as a tradition! They’ve also maintained the standard which has seen them rise from obscurity to becoming a name that any self-respecting music fan will know.
