    SOAK IN SESSION (REPEAT)



    SOAK/Bridie was born in Belfast, but grew up in Derry. She began to learn guitar aged 14, and produced her first collection of self-penned songs only a year later, before being ‘discovered’ via the Derry Playhouse’s Jammhouse in early 2012, when she was only 15 years old. 

    Since then she has won the NI Chordblossom ‘Double A Side’ competition, been a finalist in the Spotify A&M Awards 2012, and gigged extensively. Her forthcoming ‘Blud’ EP appears later this week. In the meantime, here’s another chance to hear the Session that she recorded for Dan on The Alternative last year.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: MØ, MARC O’REILLY, & THE WAR ON DRUGS



    She’s been mentioned in the same sentance as Bjork, Grimes, and Lykee Li, but in reality MØ is very much her herself. Her album ‘No Mythologies to Follow’ is easily one of the finest debuts in recent memory.

    MARC O’REILLY HUMAN HERDINGS’


    It’s hard to know which is more striking, Marc O’Reilly’s song writing or his musicianship. ‘Human Herdings’ is a widly impressive album in so many ways; strong, straightforward songs with a clever twist.

    THE WAR ON DRUGS ‘LOST IN THE DREAM’


    The War On Drugs gave us the excellent ‘Slave Ambient’ in 2011, so following that can’t have been easy. Easy or otherwise, they’ve done it in considerable style with 'Lost In The Dream'. Fans of The Hold Steady, Springsteen, and Husker Du will love this.

    BURIED TREASURE – ‘JACKNIFE LEE’ BY JACKNIFE LEE

    Garret ‘Jacknife’ Lee is one of the hottest producer and remixer on the planet at the moment, having worked names like U2, Taylor Swift, Basement Jaxx, Crystal Castles, and Pink. Not bad for a 16 year old Dublin kid, who landed a demo of his band Casablanca Moon on Dave Fanning’s desk in the mid 1980s.He was invited in to record a session on the strength of it.

    He went on to play with Thee Amazing Colossal Men, Compulsion and his own album(s) as Jacknife Lee. The most recent of which ('Jacknife Lee') appeared in 2007. Dan features this underexposed beauty in this week's Buried Treasure.
