New Release Highlights June 3rd 2011 (June 6th for the UK)

The G-Man Release Of The Week is (very narrowly over Battles)

Leisure Seizure by Tom Vek

My how time does fly? When the announcement was made that Tom Vek would finally return in June with his follow up to We Have Sound way back in March (see post here) it was greeted with lots of "yaays" and "woo hoos". The time is finally here so crank those celebratory calls up a notch or two and get yourself a copy from your local record store this Friday and enjoy your bank holiday weekend!

Battles - Gloss Drop

Arctic Monkeys - Suck It & See

Rory Gallagher - Notes From San Francisco

My Morning Jacket - Circuital

White Denim - D

Fucked Up - David Comes To Life

*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.
