Yes, the second On The Record muxtape is now live.

If you’re looking for more tunes, check out the radio show tomorrow night 10pm to midnight (it will be a bank holiday weekend block party special).

If you’re looking for some live experiences this weekend, you have the Mantua Festival in Co Roscommon (especially BLK JKS, as featured on the new muxtape), the Indie-Pendence fest in Mitchelstown, Co Cork (Cathy Davey and New Amusement are hugely recommended), the Castle Palooza fest in Tullamore, Co Offaly (go along and shout at The Flaws until they play “Change Clothes”) and the Farmleigh Affair in Dublin (that is, if you have one of the free tickets because they’re long gone at this stage).

By the way, if you’re still in Tullamore on Monday night, do everything you can to get to see Lisa Hannigan at The Thatch. I saw her last night in Dundalk’s lovely Spirit Store and it was one of the finest live shows I’ve seen in an age. Her debut album “Sea Sew” arrives on September 12 and it’s sounding quite, quite spectacular. More on the live show next week.

Until then, have a smashing weekend.
