Tom Hanks once described the Pure M Picks as “like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get”. And in a way, he’s right you know.  From hip-hop to shoegaze via ethereal folk, it’s a mish-mash of genres this week. But hey, that’s the music scene in Ireland right now – and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Track of the week comes from Randolf & The Crokers.

Randolf & The Crokers – Hangin’ 

An up-tempo track from Randolf & The Crokers, and the perfect introduction to their new EP.

Rocket Propelled Gorillas – Sedation

Electro-inspired rock from Belfast, with hooks-a-plenty and some great vocals.
