NO ENCORE #158 | Rushes Of Blood To The Head

Craig flees to Spain like an exiled lord as Dave and Daithí hold down the NO ENCORE fort.

There’s an in-depth look at Drake’s 3Arena takeover, a chat with Rushes as he releases his debut EP, and Dave’s grand return to school amongst plenty more.

ACT ONE: Daithí does Drake as Dave buries himself in The Dirt.

ACT TWO: Scott Walker RIP, Bo-Raps gets the scissors, Dr. Dre has social media remorse and the holograms are back to haunt us – it’s the news.

ACT THREE: Cork producer Rushes has just dropped his debut Glimpse EP. He joins the boys to discuss his process, working with Diffusion Lab, choosing a different path and retaining a sense of mystery.

ACT FOUR: Songs of the Week with Flume, Tame Impala, Sky Ferreira, Marina, and Logic.

ACT FIVE: Avant-garde outfit and critical darlings These New Puritans are back with their first album in six years. Dave didn’t like the last one, so that bodes well, right?
