    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

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


    How do you follow-up an album that you poured your heart and soul into? It’s a question that I have no answer, but fear not, James Vincent McMorrow has! His debut album ‘Early In The Morning’ is one of those albums that means a lot to many people, so he could have easily made part two of this. ‘Post Tropical’ is a different album, but one that has every bit as much beauty and emotional depth.

    ‘Inhale Exhale’ has been awaiting its release for quite some time. The debut from Dubliners CPNHGN captures a live sound that can often get squeezed out of studio recordings. It has those important characteristics; energy, honesty, and song writing craft that shouldn’t be overlooked.
