    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    PRIMAL SCREAM LIVE AT BENICASSIM The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from across Europe.


    Those who have forecasted Primal Scream’s demise in recent years should take a listen to the band’s latest album ‘More Light’. With this, their 10th studio album, they’ve brought us some of their best material. Catch the band in immense live form from the 2013 Benicassim festival with Dan on The Alternative.

    Recorded RTVE – Radio 3 for the EBU at the Benicassim festival.







    Making an impression with your debut album isn’t always an easy thing, but Analogue Wave have certainly managed to do that with ‘N.L.G. W.V.’ It’s an album that sits outside of any particular trend, and shows that the Dublin duo have a wide musical radar (and probably huge vinyl collection – this has yet to be confirmed!)

    Often referred to as NOW, Nightmares On Wax is the performing name for George Evelyn. ‘Feelin Good’ continues the NOW adventure in a soulful and playful way. It’s a collage of sounds that has been cleverly put together without being overly clinical. The best Nightmares On Wax album? Perhaps... Perhaps not, but a mighty return for NOW.

    It’s beautiful imagery meets guitar drone on ‘Glacial’; the debut album from US act Western Lows. While this sounds like a conflict, the two sit alongside one another perfectly. It’s hard to believe that this is the band’s debut album; ‘Glacial’ is an album that many established acts would love to call their own.
