Meanwhile, the boys sidestep two major album releases to shine a light on one of the most inventive and daring pop records of the year. ACT ONE: Reviews of gigs that Dave didn't attend.

The boys are back in town as Dave returns to hosting duties and thus NO ENCORE is kinda-sorta almost complete again.

The boy Daithí grabs the driver’s seat with Andrea Cleary riding shotgun as Craig clings on to the roof rack, NO ENCORE unable to shake him loose.

On this week's show; the intense power of Childish Gambino, the latest full-length from Jon Hopkins, a chat with Slow Skies as her new album takes flight, and all the other major goings on... the...

With Hanners on his hollypops, Claire Beck climbs aboard the NO ENCORE frigate to keep Colm and Craig company. An album of provocative pop is under the microscope, the conversation inevitably goes West, and this week’s tracks get X-rated… ACT ONE: ‘Ye dismay, Drizzy in a tizzy, ABBA rebjörn, and acts' favourite axe-makers face axe – it’s the news, y’all!

Delorentos release fifth studio album proper True Surrender this Friday, but before that, Kieran McGuinness and Rónán Yourell take NO ENCORE behind the scenes of how the record came to be. It's been a long road for the band to get to this point, but in sticking to their guns and firmly remaining true to their ideals, they've crafted a terrific piece of work that reflects where they're at in their lives while deftly avoiding the expected clichés that could anchor such a project.
