NO ENCORE #122 | Sting In The Tale

NO ENCORE is a man down as Colm flounces off to hang out with his impending in-laws.

That leaves Dave and Craig to welcome the returning Fionnuala Jones, she of Daily Edge, Goldenplec and hailing from The Big Town with a Hill fame.

On this week’s agenda; the new Drake album and why it’s such an intimidating proposition, some World Cup and Love Island chatter, and the hottest studio there ever was.

ACT ONE: Preamble in the form of TV reviews for some reason.

ACT TWO: The news looks at Fyre Festival, an outlandish Mark Hoppus claim and a collection of accounts from musicians detailing their struggles with the industry and its effect on their well-being.

ACT THREE: The gang enter the void to take on Drake and his colossal Scorpion.

ACT FOUR: Songs of the Week with The Blaze, Charli XCX, James Vincent McMorrow, Orbital and the artist formerly known as East India Youth.

EXIT MUSIC: Carlo Magliocco – ‘Mark The Map’
