    THE VINCENT(S) IN REPEAT SESSION



    They've only been together a little over two years, but The Vincent(s) are one of the best young bands that Ireland has produced in quite some time. Hear their 2013 session with Dan on The Alternative, and see why they're so highly regarded. The band have released an EP and a single, and like other Cork acts The Altered Hours and Elastic Sleep, they have the potential to give us one hell of a debut album in the not-too distant future.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: EMO • HYDE, WILL DE BURCA, & THE HORRORS

    Brian Eno and Karl Hyde have made some truly great music over the years, but that didn't guarantee that their collaboration on 'Someday World' would continue this rich tradition. Thankfully it works wonderfully on every track; never falling short at any stage. At times this sounds like Depeche Mode jamming with Tinariwen - spectacular!

    Will De Burca has been knocking out classy tune for the last number of years. 'Tomorrow’s Light & Darkness' is his debut album, which has exceeded the high expectations that I had for it. At times it's a throwback to early 90s electro (the good stuff!), but mostly it's an album that based very much in the present.

    ‘Luminous’ is album number four from The Horrors. It’s an album that could have been released almost any time over the past 25 years, as it could sit well with music in 1989, 1997, or 2002 as much as it does today. It’s what The Horrors do so well; their brand of psychedelic shoegaze that nods to many masters from the past.

    BURIED TREASURE – 'MY BEAUTIFUL DEMON' BY BEN CHRISTOPHERS



    Somehow this managed to slip by a lot of people's radar when it was released in 1999. 'My Beautiful Demon' sat somewhere be Jeff Buckley's 'Grace' and 'OK Computer' by Radiohead. Like both of those album, it was not an album that sat with any particular trend at the time. Christophers' bittersweet vocals are both fragile and powerful; making this album a true treasure for anyone who heard it.
