    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    JACK WHITE - BACK & FORTH The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from across Europe.


    If someone was to look back at music from the early part of this century, Jack White is a name that will come up more than a few times. He’s brought us music as part of The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather, and solo. And he’s nowhere near being finished yet...

    Dan brings you music from the many different areas of the Jack White arsenal on this week’s Back & Forth.







    God Is An Astronaut are back with their sixth studio album ‘Origins’. In truth, they were far from inactive over the past number of years. The Wicklow-based band have been on what seems like a continous tour for the past number of years. After celebrating their tenth anniversary last year, they’ve delivered their latest and best album.

    After a blistering set at last weekend’s Electric Picnic, it’s only a matter of days until Factory Floor release their debut album (it’s out this Friday in Ireland). After four years of singles, Eps, and remixes, they give us this 10-track monster, which is simply titled ‘Factory Floor’.

    A new Nine Inch Nails albums is always big news, and even more so when there was no guarantee that there would ever be another NIN album! Thankfully ‘Hesitation Marks’ continues Trent Reznor’s musical odyssey. Never one to stick to one formula, Reznor and his NIN cohorts have created an album that should please fans, and many of the unconverted.
