#IrishSounds 2015 – over and out

I missed a week of #IrishSounds! (what is #IrishSounds? – check out this post)

And I didn’t even realise it. I started the challenge at the beginning of January of this year to  make an effort to listen to more homegrown music after Spotify told me that in 2014, only 4% of the music I listened to was Irish. It was fun while it lasted (seven months), but after missing a week, I’ve decided I’m not going to continue it for the rest of the year. I’ll still make an effort to listen to Irish music on Spotify, but won’t be quite so regimental about it! Thanks to everyone who recommended Irish music to me – both on and off line. There were some exciting discoveries along the way. I’ve made a playlist of the music I listened to week by week – listen to it if you fancy getting a flavour of what I listened to from January to July 🙂


If I had to name my three favourite weeks, they would be (in order of listening):

  1. Kormac – Doorsteps
  2. Le Galaxie – Le Club
  3. Róisín Murphy – Hairless Toys

Check them out!
