New Release Highlights September 16th 2011 (September 19th for the UK)

The G-Man Release Of The Week is :

Feet Fall Heavy by Kill It Kid

Feet Fall Heavy is balls-out rock. I love it! The interchange of vocals between guitarist Chris Turpin and piano player Stephanie Ward keeps the album nicely swaying back and forth too.

Other ditties/releases of note this weekend...

Throwing Muses - Anthology

Pearl Jam - Pearl Jam Twenty

Opeth - Heritage

The Duke Spirit - Bruiser

Scroobius Pip - Distraction Pieces

Lanterns On The Lake - Gracious Tide Take Me Home


Blitzen Trapper - American Goldwing

The Silver Seas - Chateau Revenge

*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.
