The G-Man Release Of The Week is :
Road Atlas 1998-2011 by Calexico
Slim enough pickings this week but Road Atlas 1998-2011, an eight vinyl box set of live albums that were only ever available at live concerts on cd, may have some Calexico fans drooling at the mouth.
Other ditties/releases of note this weekend including a few releases from last weekend when I was off galavanting, jazz-style...
King's Daughters and Sons - If Not Then When
Chris Cornell - Songbook
Peaking Lights - 936
Emmy The Great & Tim Wheeler - This Is Christmas
Throbbing Gristle - Heathen Earth: The Live Sound Of Throbbing Gristle
*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.
