    LITTLE GREEN CARS IN REPEAT RTE 2FM SESSION The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from across Europe


    Little Green Cars were RTE 2fm’s nominees for the Eurosonic festival 2013. They joined 250 bands from all over Europe in Groningen (The Netherlands) for Europe’s most influential music industry gathering in January.

    The band released their debut album ‘Absolute Zero’ earlier this year, which was recorded during Summer 2012 with renowned producer, Markus Dravs (Mumford & Sons, Arcade Fire, Coldplay). This session was originally broadcast in January, but here’s another chance to hear it.
