    AND SO I WATCH YOU FROM AFAR IN THE RTE 2FM SESSION

    Those merchants of noise And So I Watch You From Afar have been hard at work in 2013. Not only did they release their third album 'All Hail Bright Futures', but they've also been announced as special guests to Nine Inch Nails when the US act visits Belfast shortly. Be afraid, be very afraid, ASIWYFA's noise will send shock waves through your mind!

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – HALVES, THESE NEW PURITANS & O EMPEROR

    Halves follow-up their stunning 2010 debut album 'It Goes, It Goes (Forever & Ever)' with ‘Boa Howl’. The albums is out on July 5th, and they embark on a nationwide tour the following day. ‘Boa Howl’ is a beautiful album that showcases a band that are fast becoming masters of their craft.

    If 2008’s ‘Beat Pyramid’ is These New Puritans’ yin, then 2013’s ‘Field Of Reeds’ is definitely their yang. If anything, this new album shows just how versatile TNP are. They’ve always existed outside of what ever trend is going on, and ‘Field Of Reeds’ sees them continue this in striking fashion.

    O Emperor are a band that have reference points that spread far and wide. From Radiohead to The Beatles, through to The Flaming Lips and The Byrds; they’re sound has steadily built and matured over the years. 'Vitreous' their latest album finds them in fine form, changing direction, but rarely leaving you in any doubt that they are a full control of their upward trajectory.
