    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    BASTILLE'S FIVE-TRACK SHUFFLE The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from across Europe.


    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.





    Details of this week’s competition are as follows...

    We have two sets of (identical) prizes that include: Albums by Little Green Cars, ‘The Great Gatsby’ OST, David Long, and EPs from P.I.G.S, and Kantor Tzar Collectif. Also, a pair of tickets to see The Boomtown Rats at The Marquee, Cork on July 5th (Under 18s must be accompanied by someone over 18 years of age).

    The Question: Name the vocalist with The Boomtown Rats?
