New Release Highlights June 17th (June 20th for the U.K.)



The G-Man Release Of The Week is :

Bon Iver by Bon Iver


Those expecting another For Emma, Forever Ago beware as, like the Blood Bank E.P. suggested, Justin Vernon and team have been tinkering, noodling and fiddling with some electronic devices for their second studio album. For what it is worth there is a big thumbs up coming from my general direction. Check out the official video for "Calgary" below.

Other releases of note this weekend...

Richard Thompson - Live At The BBC

Digitalism - I Love You, Dude


*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.
