    DJ SHADOW – BACK & FORTH

    DJ Shadow (Josh Davis) has made some of the most progressive and memorable music since he introduced himself to us in the 1990s. With albums like ‘Endtroducing.....’ (1996), ‘The Private Press’ (2002) and ‘The Less You Know The Better’ (2011), he has established himself as one of the most inventive music composers of the modern age. Dan brings you Back & Forth through the music of DJ Shadow on The Alternative.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: ANN SCOTT, MOBY, & CHEQUERBOARD

    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.
