New Release Highlights March 30th (April 2nd for the UK)


The G-Man Release Of The Week is :

Divine Providence by Deer Tick

Nutty, alt-country Rhode Islanders record about their hometown finally sees a European release. Already confirmed for EOTR it would be surprising if a trip across the water to Electric Picnic was not announced in the coming months.

*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.
