New Release Highlights August 5th 2011 (August 8th for the UK)


The G-Man Release Of The Week is :

Don't Act Like You Don't Careby Luke Temple


Here We Go Magic frontman releases his third solo album. This album, which has a pretty incredible cover if I do say so myself, of alt-country numbers was recorded around the same time of the first Here We Go Magic release.

Other ditties/releases of note this weekend...

Jonathan Wilson - Gentle Spirit

Fionn Regan - 100 Acres of Sycamore

*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.
