New Release Highlights April 29th 2011 (May 2nd for the UK)

The G-Man Release Of The Week : Helplessness Blues by Fleet Foxes

Not exactly a surprise choice here with all eyes on the Seattle band as they release album numero two.

The full album can still be streamed over on NPR. Click here to do so.

Tickets are still available for their Cork Live At The Marquee appearance on June 26th.

Other releases of note this weekend...

Emmylou Harris - Hard Bargain

Beastie Boys - Hot Sauce Committee Part Two

The Leisure Society - Into The Murky Water

Agnes Obel - Philharmonics

Franz Ferdinand - Covers E.P.

*If anyone is about Cork I recommend popping in to Jim and Albert in Plugd Records. The new store is up and running on Tobin Street as part of the new Triskel Arts Centre and you can even have a cup of tea and a bite to eat in their new café, Gulpd.

If you are 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.
