New Release Highlights for 23rd July (Rep. Ireland) & 26th July (U.K.)

What is it with late Summer being shite for new releases?

Well the fact that bands are all off touring the festival circuit and albums were purposefully pencilled in for release before these festivals so as to drum up some hype may have something to do with it.....

New releases of any sort of merit this week....

The Magic Numbers - The Runaway

La Roux - Sidetracked

For anyone excited about the Eels upcoming album in August check out the video for "Spectacular Girl" now viewable on Myspace here.
