New Release Highlights September 30th 2011 (October 3rd for the UK)

The G-Man Release Of The Week is :

Confidants by Land Lovers

Pádraig Cooney, Ciarán Canavan, Brian Lynch, Cormac Hughes and Shane Murphy are Land Lovers, Dublin popsters and co-founding members of the Popical Island collective.

If you find yourself moping around the capital city this Friday why not pop in to the Crawdaddy where the album is set to get a good launching (with the help of both Squarehead and Last Days of 1984) and the night is sure to rub a big cheesy smile straight on to your kisser.

Confidants can be streamed in its entirety over on Nialler9's blog by clicking the link below.

*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.
