The London Ear on RTÉ 2XM // Show 162

Seeing as I was back in Ireland last week and spent most of the week preparing for next week’s show, (it’s a biggie) I decided that this week’s episode of The London Ear would feature some of the great music around right now.

So hear ye go, here’s show 162 of The London Ear, oh yeah.. my guest on next week’s episode of The London Ear is Irish Ambassador to Great Britain, Dan Mulhall. Mr Mulhall is off to Washington in a few weeks to take up the post of Ambassador to the United States. I’m thrilled that he took the time out to chat.

But first…

When you’re living away from home, you can miss out out some musicians that really you shouldn’t. For me, Ciaran Lavery was one and a while back a friend told me he was playing a gig in London. I was a bit gutted that I couldn’t go that night but since Ciaran released Sea Legs with Ryan Vail in April, things seem to be heading fast in a upward motion. So I thought I better grab him for The London Ear while I could.

Here’s what happened:

1. The London Ear Intro
2. The Weeknd: Can’t Feel My Face
3. Harts: Streets
4. Lake Malawi: Young Blood
5. The Harlots: On My Way
6. W I N T E R: The Sea Bites Back
7. Ciaran Lavery: Shame
8. Chat with Ciaran Lavery (Part 1)
9. Ciaran Lavery and Ryan Vail: The Colour Blue

UTRB

UTRBTwo years ago I spoke to Pete Lawrie, he had signed to Universal and had just released his debut album. At that time, he spoke of wanting to try making new, different music and he wasn’t even sure what name it would be released under.

Since then Pete has been working under the moniker, Until The Ribbon Breaks and has shown himself to be quite prolific. His soundcloud account, filled with his remixes is testament to that. He also has a debut album release in the not too distant future. Last month Spin named him as one of the Best New Artists for June .

So UTRB has reimagined The Weeknd‘s Wicked Games and made it available for your lovely ears to enjoy. Well what are you waiting for ? Press that button!
