    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    Joan Wasser has been performing under the name Joan As Policewoman for more than a decade, and has released four studio alums, and a covers album. Thnis set was recorded on March 21st of this year at café de la danse, and Dan has highlights of the show on The Alternative.

    Recorded Radio France – FIP for Eurosonic.








    If you ever came across the explosive sound of Davila 666, you’ll love A.J. Davila’s new album ‘Terror Amor’. He formerly of that band has released one of the best albums of 2014 thus far.


    The enduring Opeth are back with a new album. ‘Pale Communion’ is definitely one of their best. They know exactly when to crank things up, and slow things down. The Swedish titans take another step forward in their quest for the perfect combination of Prog Rock, Classic Rock, and Metal.


    JJ are also from Sweden, but that’s about all they have in common with Opeth! The word ‘mysterious’ seems to be following them around quite a bit purely because they were low key about their identity. They have thrown all sorts of sounds into their third album ‘V’, which takes you into their world – a fascinating adventure.
