Back to the baked beans for dinner so following the latest visit to Tobin Street's not-so-hidden treasure, Plugd Records. With 25% off all stock, I was lured in akin to a helpless seabass mindlessly chasing a newly polished fly. The difference being at the end of the day - unlike my ill-fated aquatic chum - I was free to amble off home for a contented listen to my new purchases, which are listed below.

This week's Plugd purchases were:

Pure Bathing Culture - Moon Tides

I had been meaning to pick this up for quite some time but, bravely resisting the easy "add-to-cart" compulsion, I allowed the ritual of stumbling upon a eagerly sought record to happen organically. And so it did on Saturday to my schoolgirl-squealing giddy delight.

Marnie Stern - The Chronicles of Marnia

I think my evening tweeting encapsulates the excitement brought forth by the purchase of the new Marnie album perfectly.

Josephine Foster - Blood Rushing

If a reminder was needed that visits to Plugd can unearth more than just new records, then a recent invite to a garden gig with Colorado song-queen Josephine Foster tops the "extras" pile. The album was promptly placed in my hand upon entering the Triskel Arts Centre-based blessing on my subsequent visit.

Glenn Jones - My Garden State

My Garden State has not received a proper listen as of yet (bloody 24-hour days) but word has it Thrill Jockey's instrumental master-hand is on his way to Cork on 9th November.
