The G-Man Random 5


With all the music we have collected over the years it is easy to sometimes lose track of great albums that lie dormant in our collections. Every week I place my mp3 player on random and list the first five songs to appear no matter how odd they may be. Results can vary but that is the magic of...

The G-Man Random 5


1. Song : Only Breathe
Artist : The David Nelligan Thing
Album : Everything Matters
Year : 2010

I would like to say the appearance of this Cork man is due to the influence of working on The Cork Music Show over the past few months but I must admit I have had this album on the dusty-yet-trusty Creative Zen a long time before a microphone was put in front of my talkative face. Check out track 7 on the player below but obviously feel free to stream the album in its entirety as it is a treat.




2. Song : My County
Artist : tUnE-YarDs
Album : W H O K I L L
Year : 2011

One of the highlights of EOTR 2011. This multi-talented minx is simply magic.


3. Song : Fools
Artist : The Dodos
Album : Mojo Presents : New Harvest
Year : 2009

Mojo really do give away some great compilations and New Harvest was of a particularly high quality. The theme of the magazine that edition was all based around Neil Young and the cd contained tracks from the young upstarts and contenders for Young's throne featuring Fleet Foxes, Vetiver, Alela Diane, The Low Anthem and plenty more. The Dodo's kicked the whole thing off, appearing on the first track with "Fools".


4. Song : Kay-Ray-Kú-Kú-Kó-Kex
Artist : Múm
Album : Sing Along To Songs You Don't Know
Year : 2009

Say that song title three times quickly!


5. Song : You Better Mind
Artist : Sam Amidon
Album : I See The Sign
Year : 2010

One of the albums of 2010 and this track also features Beth Orton.
