    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.


    Ann Scott has been one of the most consistent Irish artists over the past decade. With the release of her fourth album 'Venus To The Sky' last year, Scott brought her song writing to a new level; these beautiful songs with a distinctly individual identity. Having shared the stage with artists as diverse as Patti Smith, Howe Gelb and Fairport Convention, she has a wealth of experience.





    'Explosive' is one of those phenomenally good albums that somehow managed to slip by without enough people ever getting to hear it. Released in 2004, you couldn't help but notice that this was a special album; fragile beauty, infectious grooves, and a mixture of influences that worked wonderfully together. If it appeared today, fans of The XX, and Darkside would consume it with considerable vigour.
