Music Reads

Gaga’s new video

Have you seen it yet? There’s something to admire about her commitment to this new hippie-rocker gal raving it up image but I can’t help feel this could be more visually stimulating? Hmm.

Solange’s Return?

She’s up to something alright? PopCrush have the latest on her hopefully-here-soon new album.

Dagny goes shopping

Been playing Dagny’s great tune Ultraviolet the last few weeks and it’s a belter. This is a fun piece with Popjustice’s Peter Robinson hanging out with her in a London vintage shop for The Guardian. Nice work if you can get it etc etc

The Weeknd talks new album

He shared the artwork for his new album today and it’s very moody and impressive indeed. No release for Starboy but his tweets seem to imply something soon. Meanwhile he was profiled by VMan recently and they have some good tidbits on what to expect from the new LP.


The Weeknd Starboy

Tomorrow I’ll be back at 8 with TWO PAIRS of Ed Byrne tickets, for his show this Saturday in Galway’s Blackbox Theatre, up for grabs and tunes galore.

Plus I’ll be popping up with Tracy Clifford on her show sometime around 2pm to challenge her on music quiz Radiohead. It’s all happening!
