A regular feature highlighting some of the best album releases each month. I don’t do album “reviews” – this is simply a personal recommendation to check out an album - just a few words about the albums that appeal to me and about the artists releasing them. These will also be albums from which I’ll have been playing tracks on the Friday NI Rocks Shows recently. This month it includes albums from Magnus Karlsson’s Free Fall, Mike Tramp and Saint Deamon.
There are two NI Rocks Shows uploaded each week on Rock Radio NI. These are the playlists for those Shows for the month of March 2023 – all of which are still available from the On Demand Player. There are tracks by around 150 different artists on the Shows this month. There are also monthly Spotify playlists for the Friday NI Rocks Show which feature most of the tracks from each Show that month.
Playlists for February were published previously and those Shows are also still available via the On Demand Player – http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/news/rrni-updates/3870-ni-rocks-playlists-for-february-2023
There were no new interviews on the Friday NI Rocks Show this month, but there was a special promo features with Tyler from Theory of a Deadman.
All previous interviews can be found here - http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/interviews.html and on the NI Rocks MixCloud page as well - https://www.mixcloud.com/NIRocks/ .
Burning Witches release their fifth studio album, entitled “The Dark Tower”, through Napalm Records on 5th May. The all female band formed in Switzerland in 2015 and Dutch singer Laura Guldemond joined in 2019. “The Dark Tower” will be her third fronting the band. I had an opportunity to chat with Laura via Skype on 3rd April and we talked about the new album, the band, tour plans and much more.
That interview was included on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 7th April and repeated again on 5th May - those Shows are available via the Rock Radio NI On Demand Player for a few weeks - http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/hosts/ni-rocks-friday-rock-show
