Podcast #18: Electric Picnic in review, Hozier the Forest King, Big Red Machine

On this week’s episode, Niall Andrea discuss Electric Picnic and how it was in its fifteenth year and how it’s grown, changed and what was good and what was bad. And yes, we discuss Maggie Rogers’ tweet (our written EP review is here). There’s chat about an Abba-themed restaurant, the peculiarity of livestreamed funerals and, as a new EP drops from the man, the even more peculiar Hozier meme where largely Americans have started calling him the Forest King.

We’ve got songs of the week from Thom Yorke and DAWN alongside a superb new album from Big Red Machine, who is Aaron Dessner of the National and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver and friends. We close with a song from Galway producer John Daly, who launches his excellent album at Tengu on Friday.

Please subscribe to the podcast and leave a review on iTunes but most importantly tell your friends.
