Ronan’s Track of the Week (18 September 2017)

My track of the Week, which we played on Monday’s show, is ‘Up All Night’ from the new album from ‘The War on Drugs‘. Released as a single last month, it’s a stunning track, which wears its influences on its sleeve. Bob Dylan is the obvious one, though to my ear the influence appears to be the less fashionable Dylan material from the 1980s. It’s not pastiche in any way; the music is far too good for that. The track is taken from the band’s fourth album, ‘A Deeper Understanding’, their first on ‘major label’ Atlantic Records – an it’s an album that gets a solid ‘thumbs up’ from Shush.

This week we did short interviews with two of our colleagues. We spoke to our Library Director Colette McKenna about what UCC Library has to offer our users. We also spoke to Rose Buttimer, our Electronic Resources Librarian about our new search facility OneSearch.

Our recommended read of the week this week is in honour of Grant Hart who sadly passed away today (14.09.17). This great post pays homage to the seminal band Husker Du – the band that Grant and Bob Mould furiously unleashed upon the world in 1979
