NO ENCORE #014 | We Cut Corners
There are no shortcuts on the latest NO ENCORE, but the boys are joined by the excellent duo of John Duignan and Conall Ó Breacháin aka We Cut Corners for some lively chat. They’re lovely gentleman who make really great music that you should check out immediately if you haven’t already – and by ‘immediately’ we mean ‘after you listen to this episode’. Elsewhere and in between it’s a packed show with lots to discuss, so check out the full breakdown below…
ACT ONE: Live recaps galore as our grapple-happy trio head to a wrestling show, Dave takes in Sigur Rós and James Vincent McMorrow at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham and there’s even a brief look at Glastonbury 2016 and the season finale of popular medieval soap opera Game of Thrones.
ACT TWO (11:20): A blitz of news in the form of Brexit fallout, Lady Gaga getting banned from China (again), Adele and 50 Cent turning the air blue and why the end may be nigh for people who like to watch gigs through their phones. Oh, and the return of Craig On Kanye and a fun Top 10.
ACT THREE (30:20): It’s the always-glorious Songs Of The Week featuring Rihanna, Angel Olsen, Blood Orange, Ed Harcourt and, er, Taking Back Sunday.
ACT FOUR (48:50): We Cut Corners stop by to talk latest single ‘On Avoiding People’, their forthcoming third record, summer holidays, vinyl, festivals (which Dave is still retired from) and much more.
ACT FIVE (1:14:45): DJ Shadow returns with The Mountain Will Fall and is met with a tough crowd in the NO ENCORE studio. Also; thoughts on the new one from Blink-182.
EXIT MUSIC: Ganglions – ‘Fallow’
