    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    DERMOT LAMBERT'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.


    It’s album number three from Julia Holter. So, has she embraced glam, and created a Rock Opera? No, certainly not; ‘Loud City Song’ continues Holter’s exploration of of the ethereal, and drawing inspiration from Joni Mitchell and the poetry of Frank O’Hara. It wouldn’t be outrageous to say that Julia Holter is one of the individual artists making music these days.
