2xmThe first GoldenPlec Select on In Colour on RTÉ’s 2XM ran on the 30th of March, and featured yours truly talking Hudson Taylor on the day of the release of their album ‘Singing For Strangers’ in the UK.

The segment features a brief potted history of the brothers, followed by album closer ‘Off The Hook’ from the debut album, and discussion of the rest of the record. You can listen back here, from about the 15 minute mark.

Presenter Darren Cleary and I touch on Hudson Taylor’s move to London, early record label attention, busking days and the strength of the less-touted half of ‘Singing For Strangers’.

I’ll be appearing on In Colour every two weeks, with the next review due to take place on the 8pm show on Monday 13 April.

To submit music for review on the show email track links and a bio to james@goldenplec.com. I will listen to it all, but cannot realistically reply or provide feedback on every submission. As we’ll be talking extensively about a single record, we can only consider albums and EPs to feature on GoldenPlec Select, not individual tracks. Please do not send large attachments as they’ll end up being blocked by our web server. We look forward to hearing from as many bands as possible!
