    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    OLIVER COLE'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.


    Krautrock is a term that’s often thrown around when Eat Lights Become Lights are mentioned. ELBL have always been heralded as a live force; but with ‘Modular Living’, certainly shows that they can create something special in studio too.

    'Sleep Of Reason' is an album in the true sense of the word. It's the debut album from Raffertie which is the performing name for Ben Stefanski. There are plenty of musical reference points that you may come up with, but 'Sleep Of Reason' holds itself up as a very individual piece of work.
