Lisa Lemur & The G-Man present...Dott and French For Rabbits

Dott
French For Rabbits
New albums and Zealanders...

It's been a while so I am thrilled to announce the latest G-Man Presents... session, a co-promotion with the wonderful Lisa Lemur: a double-headliner featuring Galwegian garage-popsters Dott and New Zealand dream-folk duo French For Rabbits. This one's set to be particularly special seeing as the former come armed with Swoon, the Galway group's d├ębut record to be released that same weekend and the latter will be enjoying their very first professional visit to our fair green isle.

******************************************
Dott

Dott are from Galway, Ireland and play shiny, harmony-driven garage pop. The band is led by songwriter Anna McCarthy (vocals/guitar) with Laura Finnegan (bass/vocals), Miriam Donohue (guitar/vocals) and Tony Higgins (drums). Their eagerly awaited debut album Swoon will be released on November 5th 2013 on Graveface Records US. Their debut EP Button was released in 2012 on the Popical Island Collective and on 7" vinyl with Graveface Records USA.

"Sunny garage rock with dash, shizzle and superfly choruses from Galway-based underground supergroup"
Jim Carroll, (The Irish Times)

"Dott have some infectious tunes on their Button EP... "Leave Tonight" and "Let's Do It" are especially good."
Brooklyn Vegan

French For Rabbits

French for Rabbits are a dream folk duo from Wellington, New Zealand. They released debut EP ‘Claimed by the Sea’ in March through the Wellington music collective ‘Home Alone Music’. Strong alternative radio airplay of the album and a growing fan base has resulted in a Best Folk Album Tui nomination for the duo. Vocalist Brooke Singer and jazz guitarist John Fitzgerald use nautical-themed language to examine stories of longing and regret in a stunning debut set

"Brooke has this beguiling voice that is sure to add French For Rabbits to the list of New Zealand's exports before long, overwhelmingly beautiful."
Just Music I Like

"Claimed By The Sea is the duo’s debut EP, a gorgeous collection of woozy vocals and reverberating instrumentation"
