I’ve made an Electric Picnic DJ Mix every year since 2008. It’s always been a blast to make and a highlight of the site for me personally. 2016’s mix features 22 artists on the Electric Picnic lineup over 20 songs in just under 55 minutes.

It’s for bumping for your festival prep for the next week or in the car on the way down to Stradbally. Last year’s mix.

I’m DJing at the Red Bull Tropical Garden at EP on Saturday from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

Update: It’s 2016, I found this post and enjoyed it. I’ve now added a Spotify playlist of all of the albums available.

Below is a list of my favourite records of the ten years between the turn of the millenium, the year 2000 and 2010. Ranking these albums was led by a) what the album means to me and b) how often I’d listen to it. Each and every one of these albums blew me away repeatedly at some time between the ages of 18 and 27. Each one has something special going for it, something magical that brings me back to it. For that I can only thank the creators of each.

Without further ado, here are my favourite 50 albums from the decade. And remember, you can’t be wrong if they are your favourites.

Albums of interest to stream this week:

Animal Collective – Centipede Hz

The band’s ninth album after two initial listens feels like their jam-band album, one indebted most to their Grateful Dead influence. I’ve never been a massive fan of their busy songs, the ones which seem to pile on instruments and create dissonance in the process. But, I need to give this more of a chance before coming to a verdict.

Avey Tare’s solo album Down There comes out this month. I mentioned ‘Lucky 1’ on State earlier in the week and now there’s a crocodiles and kaleidoscopic visuals-featuring video. Avey’s sister Abby Portner made it so I guess he had no choice but to use it. Good job sis!

Avey Tare – Lucky 1

A preview of some new albums hitting soon informs the 13 tracks on our 29th podcast. You’ll no doubt be getting acquainted with Contra at the moment if not, ‘Run’ exemplifies how much Vampire Weekend have advanced while still sounding like old. We’ve got tracks from Jesca Hoop’s brilliant album Hunting My Dress (also playing Dublin, Belfast and Galway in February), Bullion’s new single, a preview of Sam Amidon’s new one, a stonking rap number from Jay Electronica, an etheral, spooky cut from JJ, a beautiful soaring single from Frightened Rabbit, a track from James Pants’ new one Seven Seals as well as Laura Veirs and Rick Rubin-produced rising folk lads The Avett Brothers.

Aoife Mc is your podcast host – check out her food blog – I Can Has Cook? and of course her new radio show Right Click Radio on 2XM.
