Free Mixtape: The New Wave: Volume 2 – The Best New Irish Music

The month of September saw me finish my Master’s degree, hand in my thesis and leave Ireland to travel this globe for a bit. The result was a distinct lack of updates on these pages but I’m glad to be kicking things back into gear with the second volume in The New Wave series of free mixtapes.

The reaction to Volume 1 was excellent and the formula is the same again here – ten tracks from my favourite Irish artists of recent times, thrown together for you to digest and (hopefully) fall in love with. While Volume 1 was all cheery pop-hooks, Volume 2 has a slightly darker edge, connected as it is by some sparse acoustic pickings (Rory Grubb), sultry 80s vibes (Patrick Kelleher), eerie desolation (Tandem Felix) and a wide range of other moods and shades that suit the oncoming winter months perfectly.
