    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    LE GALAXIE 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.


    Ahead of their performance at the Eurosonic festival in The Netherlands next week, we remind ourselves of what a special band Le Galaxie are with this set from the inaugural Longitude Festival last July. Alongside a support slot with Primal Scream at The Olympia Theatre, not to mention their own headline date at the same venue, Le Galaxie won many new friends. Their latest single 'Lucy Is Here' clocks in at just over two minutes, and is the first indication of what we can expect from the Dublin act's second album.






    Some will know him as the guy who had that big tune 'Mistadobalina' in the early 1990s, others will be familiar with him as part of Deltron 3030; he is Del The Funky Homosapien. On the second day of 2014, he continued his prolific career with the free to download album 'Iller Than Most'.   He's collaborated with a wide variety of people over the years (Gorillaz, Devo, Dinosaur Jr, The Dust Brothers, etc.), and this versatility is very evident on 'Iller Than Most'.

    Garage Pop with a few psychedelic shots is a pretty accurate description of 'Cursing The Sea', the debut album from Dublin's September Girls. Does it break any new ground? No, but what it does, it does extremely well; that being deliver to-the-point pop tunes. It’s some much-needed retro energy for those cold January days.
