Nialler9 Podcast: Ailbhe Reddy’s personal debut album in review


On this week’s pod we have some surprise guests from chimney sweepers who interrupt the recording process more than once. Welcome to the home office. We review Ailbhe Reddy’s debut album, discuss new Bicep, Kynsy, Bon Iver guests on a track and we talk Eddie Van Halen’s legacy.

It’s Episode 108 of the Nialler9 Podcast with Niall and Andrea.

Apologies the slight reduction in the sound quality on Niall’s end – the recording came out garbled. 🤷🏻‍♂️
