    MARK MULCAHY IN ACOUSTIC SESSION & INTERVIEW

    If you're looking for an example of 'Cult Status', then perhaps Mark Mulcahy is the best of all. He can count Michael Stipe, Thom Yorke, and The Flaming Lips as fans; and Nick Hornby devoted a chapter of his book 31 Songs to him. He joins Dan for some live tunes, and a chat on The Alternative.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: GHOST MAPS, M.I.A, & SOMADRONE



    Ghost Maps is the current guise for Jeff Martin of Halfset. If you were a fan of Martin's hugely underrated 2005 album 'Spoons', you'll love 'The Ocean From The River'. It's an album of great depth and full of imagination; the sound of an artist that has challenged themselves, and succeeded on every level.



    Controversy never seems to be that far away from M.I.A. who is back with album number four. Pressure? What pressure? 'Matangi' is not quite the glitzy mainstream crossover sound that some had predicted, but it certainly does underline her credentials as a major star. Some say she's full of it, but you can't deny that she is what you would call forward-thinking.



    After spending the last few years living in the US, Somadrone gives us a new album in the form of 'The First Wave'. Now Dublin-based, Somadrone (AKA Neil O'Connor) has put together an album of tunes that are slick and sophisticated, but so damn good that anyone will like them. A touch retrospective, yet very much progressive on other parts; 'The First Wave' is an album that deserves a wide and appreciative audience.
