Great to hear Cork's very own Trumpets of Jericho on the national airwaves today.
Trumocho recorded five tracks within the seemingly seldom used halls of RTE Cork with all tracks broadcast on Dan Hegarty's The Alternative earlier today.
A brace from the post-folk quartet's debut record Songs Like An Alum Ut Its Nor Really ('Pure Love, Like', 'Paddy's Revolt' and 'Pure Love, Like') complemented a trio of brand new tracks recorded live under the titles 'America', 'Post-Apocalyptic In Ringaskiddy' and 'Emigrant Song' especially for the show which broadcast on 2XM at 11am this morning. It's great to see a truly excellent Cork-based band hit the national airwaves and deservedly so with Songs Like An Alum Ut Its Nor Really one of the best albums released in Ireland in the past few years.
