CMAT: If My Wife New I’d Be Dead

A new breed of Irish pop star arrives courtesy of Ciara Mary-Alice Thompson, whose songs are equal part earworms and therapy sessions.

ROSIE CARNEY: I Wanna Feel Happy

With her second studio album, Donegal-London singer Carney releases the alternative singer-songwriter album of the year.

PILLOW QUEENS: Leave the Light On

No second-album-syndrome nervousness from Dublin’s Pillow Queens – instead, think assured indie pop/rock with intuitively emotive lyrics.


A stalwart of the Irish jazz scene, Nelson’s elegant improvisatory piano-lead jazz is a balm for the frazzled mind and a sanctuary for the troubled soul.


Fronted by the blissfully-voiced Katie Ball, Dundalk’s Just Mustard deliver a contemplative, textured second album that keeps the mind on high alert.
