Triúr “Omós” (POR)

An album of quiet magic and elegant playing from Peadar Ó Riada, Martin Hayes and Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh.

Brooklyn siblings Katie and Ben Marshall hit all the right targets with this nifty, sweet pop jam.

The Goats “Typical American” (Ruffhouse)

A rare groove from 1992 showcasing a hip-hop act who really deserved a lot more shine than they got.

John Talabot “Button Factory, Dublin” (Soundcloud)

Relive Talabot’s spinetingling set in Dublin last month with this stream.

Illum Sphere “Ghosts Of Then & Now” (Ninja Tune)

Ryan Hunn’s next-generation electronica works up an evocative and hypnotic debut album (“Sleeprunner” from the album below)
