The G-Man Release Of The Week is :
Music For Confluence by Peter Broderick
Peter Broderick's original score for Confluence, the Jennifer Anderson and Vernon Lott directed documentary based on the dark history of the Lewiston/Clarkston Valley, is as beautiful as anything else the gifted multi-instrumentalist has ever released; Listen to 2008's Home to get an idea of what I am talking about.
Other ditties/releases of note this weekend including a few releases from last weekend when I was off galavanting, jazz-style...
A.A Bondy - Believers
The Lemonheads - Hotel Sessions
The Unthanks - Diversions Vol 1.: The Songs Of Robert Wyatt And Antony & The Johnsons
Zomby - Nothing
Crooked Still - Friends of Fall
*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.
