    SINEAD O'CONNOR LIVE AT SALLE DES FETTES DE THONEX (GENEVA)

    Sinead O'Connor is an artist that constantly keeps you guessing. Musically, she's not afraid to mix things up and try new things, and while this hasn't always brought commercial success, it illustrates an artistic bravery that is rare in music these days. This set mixes old and new songs, and proves that O'Connor's music is still as beautiful and intense as ever.

    Recorded by Eurosonic at Salle des fetes de Thonex, Geneva, May 30th, 2013.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK - SNOW GHOSTS, COME ON LIVE LONG, & CONGO NATTY

    Sophisticated and folkie are often misleading descriptions, but they go some way to sum up part of what Snow Ghosts have created on 'A Small Murmuration'. At times ethereal, Snow Ghosts have brought us an album to cherish.

    Add ‘Everything Fall’ by Come On Live Long to the list of strong Irish debut album released this year. You can really see this album being embraced by many; the reference points are far and wide, mixed with a strong identity of its own.

    Congo Natty is one of the many guises of Michael West, although you may know him best for his work as Rebel MC (‘Street Tuff’ – 1989). ‘Jungle Revolution’ is his latest album, and it’s his most accomplished. More than 20 years on from his biggest hit, West/Natty sounds fresh and energised.
