    K-X-P IN REPEAT SESSION



    Finnish band K-X-P were in Ireland last year, and they recorded this session for Dan. They’ve been described as ‘Experimental Electro-Rock’ and krautrock, but whatever you want to categorise them as, their tunes just work!

    The Finnish band released their second album ‘II’ in March 2013, and it ranked as one of the best album of the year. They’ve been described as ‘Experimental Electro-Rock’ and krautrock, but whatever you want to categorise them as, their tunes just work!

    BURIED TREASURE - 'SK1' BY SIMPLE KID




    This is one of the unsung classic albums since the turn of the century. Cork born, London-based Kieran Mac Feely had a way of putting songs together like few others. 'SK1' is the first of two albums that he released before his announced that he was going to cease making music. Dan will be playing tracks from this truly outstanding album all week on The Alternative.
