New Release Highlights 18th Feb 2011 (21st for the UK)

The Low Anthem return this weekend with the eagerly anticpated Smart Flesh.

Shows in Vicar Street and at Electric Picnic as well as the critical acclaim lavished on previous album O My God, Charlie Darwin will mean that the opening weekend sales of SF should be a little bit more than its predecessor.

Stream Smart Flesh in its entirety by clicking here!

The band return to Vicar Street on April 10th.

Other releases of note this weekend...

Gil Scott-Heron And Jamie Xx - We're New Here

Amplifier - Octopus

Sara Bareilles - Kaleidoscope Heart

Yuck - Yuck

*If anyone is about Cork I recommend popping in to Jim and Albert in Plugd Records. The new store is set to open very soon 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.
