We’ve been super busy here at Hesso Media HQ.
Little Barrie called in for a live session with Marc Riley where they had a chat and performed three live tracks at their studio in Manchester. They are currently promoting their new album ‘Death Express’ which is available now. The band have previously performed with Paul Weller on 2008’s ’22 Dreams’ album, and have supported the Stone Roses in Paris. They’ve toured with Dinosaur Jr, Brian Jonestown Massacre and Charles Bradley, as well as shows with Primal Scream. Their music has also appeared on countless ads, TV shows and movies including the theme to Breaking Bad spin off Better Call Saul.

Following this we had Fionn Regan in session with Lauren Laverne, where Fionn performed two tracks and discussed his incredible new album ‘The Meetings Of The Waters’.
After being nominated for a Mercury Prize in the UK and the Choice Music Prize in Ireland, this album has received over 3 million streams on Spotify, charted at no.16 in the UK independent charts, no.6 in the Vinyl Charts and received support from MistaJam and Phil Taggart. The albums’ lead single features Peaky Blinders’ Cillian Murphy in the video, was premiered via Pitchfork and has been sampled by Justin Vernon on “00000 Million” from Bon Iver’s 22, A Million.
