    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

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


    There are few people on planet earth that are more Rock N Roll than Mark Lanegan. The former Screaming Trees vocalist and Queens Of The Stone Age member has released music through a number of different avenues over the years. His main focus these days is the Mark Lanegan Band, who played a storming set on the main stage at Longitude last July. It was sunny, they were wearing black, and the rocked!

    This set was recorded by RTE 2fm at the Longitude festival, Dublin on Sunday, July 21st.




    Over the years bands like The White Stripes, The Black Keys, and others have proven that it doesn't take a band of eight individuals to make a big noise. Dutch duo BlackboxRed are a very different kind of act to the aforementioned names, but they know how to amp things up. 'The Gunner and The Ghost' is an inspired debut, full of angst, energy, and thought.

    The vocals on Mineral's album 'Plastic Ekphrastic' may sound familiar to you, that's because they belong to Craig Walker of Power Of Dreams. With the help of Alan McGee's (ex Creation Records & Poptones) new label 359 Music, Walker and his French cohorts (Thierry Fournié, S.Armelle, and Damien Li) marry the sound of The Beach Boys, Serge Gainsbourg, and a dash of Prince to make an alt-Electro Pop gem.

    Gesaffelstein is one of the new generation of French DJ/Producer/artists. After working with Kanye West, not to mention remixing tracks by Depeche Mode and Lana Del Rey, the man that is known as Mike Levy to friends, family, and credit card company has been adding serious mainstream weight to his credentials. To get straight to the point; his debut album 'Aleph' is going to be one of the albums of 2013.
