    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    BEACH HOUSE 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.


    It’s hard to believe that the sound that Beach House create is made by just just two people, yet the Baltimore, Maryland duo has continued to make fine albums since they formed in 2004. Their self-titled debut album was released in 2006, and was followed by 'Devotion' (2008), 'Teen Dream' (2010), and Bloom in 2012.

    This set was recorded on July 17th, 2013 by RTVE – Radio 3 for Eurosonic.




    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.






    It’s all kinds of everything in this week’s competition... The prize includes: A pair of tickets to see Fossil Collective in The Academy 2 on Wednesday, October 16th, a retro MT USA T-shirt, plus albums (on CD) by Elvis Costello & The Roots, Nine Inch Nails, The Swell Season, The Clash, The Tallest Man On Earth, and others!

    The Question: What is the name of the current Nine Inch Nails album?
    A. ‘The Downward Spiral’
    B. ‘The Wall’
    C. ‘Hesitation Marks’
