    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    NANU NANU 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.


    Nanu Nau have had quite a year in 2013, between releasing their debut album ‘Unit One’, to receiving fantastic reviews (for the live shows and album).‘Unit One’ was mixed by legendary producer Rob Kirwan (the man who mixed PJ Harvey’s Mercury Prize-winning album ‘Let England Shake’ and the 13th Depeche Mode album ‘Delta Machine’).

    This session was recorded in Ferbruary, when the duo joined joined Si Schroeder and Trumpets Of Jericho on The Certain Three tour.





    Ann Scott has been one of the most talented singers and songwriters that Ireland has produced for many years. With her latest album ‘Venus To The Sky’, she’s made the strongest statement of her career. A simple, yet brilliant collection of songs that will stay with you for many years.

    Prolific is one word that describes Moby; he hasn’t left it more than three years between albums since debuting in 1992. 1999 was his year with the release of his album ‘Play’, which has left an indelible imprint on music. His latest album ‘Innocents’ will reinforce his legacy – polished, catchy, and engaging.

    Dubliner John Lambert has been performing under the name Chequerboard for many years. He unleashed the beautiful album ‘The Unfolding’ last Friday. The imagery that this album creates is quite breathtaking. This might sound like an overstatement, but take a listen; it’s hard not to agree.
