    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    DERMOT LAMBERT IN THE RTE2FM SESSION The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from across Europe.


    Dan has tracks from the three new Albums Of The Week for you on The Alternative this week. First is the second album from Warpaint; a confident second album from the US group. Here’s a preview from Chris Cunningham's Film project featuring ‘Love Is To Die’ from the new album ‘Warpaint’ Cunningham spent two years filming and photographing the band as they made new the new album.


    Rumblings about The Gloaming have been circulating for quite some time. Call them a supergroup if you like; The Gloaming is made up by Iarla O’Lionaird, Thomas Bartlett, Dennis Cahill, Martin Hayes, and Caoimhin O’Raghallaigh. Simply put, their self-titled debut is a beautiful collection of pieces of music; breathtaking perhaps.




    After releasing one of the best albums of 2011, I Break Horses are back with ‘Chiaroscuro’. “Electronic shoegaze” is a term that has come up recently, and is pretty apt. It’s quite different to their debut, in the sense that they’ve opted for electronic over guitar. An album that could quite easily ignite the masses.
