Sorcha talks about where she was at in New York when she first submitted music to Nialler9 eight years ago. Ahead of her involvement in Imagining Ireland next week at the National Concert Hall in Dublin on Sunday and Galway on Monday, alongside SOAK, Lisa O’Neill, Radie Peat, Sinéad Gleeson, Denise Chaila, Wendy Erskine and more, Sorcha joins us for the whole episode. Up for discussion:
The Grammys? Why, how, highlights, lowlights.
Songs of the week:
Caribou – Never Come Back
Chromatics – Toy
Happyness – Vegetable
Four Tet – Baby
Album of the week:
Andy Shauf’s The Neon Skyline
The Toronto artist’s third album is chiefly concerned with a small story set in a bar involving friends, ex-lovers and daydreams. It also sounds like Paul Simon.
We ask What’s Consuming You? as we share our TV, movies, music, books and podcast recommendations including the inevitable enthusiasm about Cheer on Netflix and Andrea shares not one but two surprising first watch films.
Closing track: Sorcha Richardson – False Alarm.
