    KODALINE LIVE AT THE ELECTRIC PICNIC 2013

     

    2013 was a pretty spectacular year for Kodaline, and their performance on The Electric Picnic's main stage was one of the high points. The band receive a EBBA (European Border Breaker Award) at a ceremony in Groningen, The Netherlands tonight. To mark the occasion we relive their set from the Picnic.

    MØ INTERVIEW (REPEAT)

     


    After her blistering shows in Ireland last year (at Longitude, The Electric Picnic and guesting with Aluna George at The Academy in October), Dan chats to Danish singer MØ (Karen Marie Ørsted). 2013 has been a great year for her with the singles 'Pilgrim', 'Waste Of Time', and 'XXX 88', which she features the highly regarded Diplo. With her debut album due out in February, it's safe to say that 2014 is going the year of MØ!

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – JAMES VINCENT MCMORROW, & CPNHGN



    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.
