NO ENCORE #041 | Season II: Back In The Habit

WE’RE BACK. New year, new season, new music, same old NO ENCORE fun and games.

Dave Hanratty and Colm O’Regan are joined in-studio by State Magazine Reviews Editor Zara Hedderman for an hour-or-thereabouts of music-related chat including the latest news happenings, brand new tracks, an in-depth look at the latest offering from hip hip sensations Run The Jewels and a somewhat contentious Top 10.

ACT ONE: Catching up, an exciting announcement, yet more aggression towards clickbait articles, Dave’s Top 10 Worst Songs of 2016 and an interesting encounter at Bantum’s Christmas gig.

ACT TWO (8:35): Donald Trump is having trouble soundtracking his party, Floyd Mayweather might be overseeing a rather bizarre punch-up and Dawson goes Diplo.

ACT THREE (18:30): The first Songs Of The Week of 2017 features Tyga, The xx, London Grammar and a rare appearance for one Elliott Smith.

ACT FOUR (32:10): The glorious Top 10 returns with a considered look at disappointing third albums.

ACT FIVE (47:30): But should Killer Mike and El-P find themselves on such an aforementioned list, especially when faced with a new NO ENCORE rule?. RTJ3 is up for debate…
