Mogwai's Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will is released this week just in time for the Glasgow bands two Irish dates at the beginning of next week.
The Radisson in Galway on Monday (14th Feb) and the Olympia Theatre in Dublin the following night (Tue 15th Feb) will be our first chance here to witness the new material live.
Other releases of note this weekend...
PJ Harvey - Let England Shake
Bright Eyes - The People's Key
Twilight Singers - Dynamite Steps
Gruff Rhys - Hotel Shampoo
Tina Dico - Welcome Back Colour
*If anyone is about Cork I recommend popping in to Jim and Albert in Plugd Records. The new store opens on Saturday (Feb 12th) in Tobin Street as part of the new Triskel Arts Centre.
If located elsewhere I strongly recommend picking up at least one album when you can from your local independent store. Most independents now take orders by email and post out the stock if you are unable to get to the store so it may be worth checking out.
