Ok so moving on to a big weekend for record stores and a big weekend for releases also… Becoming one of the major release days of the year now, the day before RSD is..

So let’s start with (What I believe will be one of the biggest albums of the year and could well end up high on loads of best album charts by years end…) is the debut record by FONTAINES D.C (whom I believe could be one of the biggest bands on the planet in 5 years time)… I have mentioned the Dublin boys a few times in these pages over the last 12 or 18 months now… Introduced to them way back along by Aiden from Mike The ePies and myself and Hassey from Coughlan’s tried to get them for an in-store / gigs some time back.. Alas to our great pity not to be… The debut record “Dogrel” is released by Partisan Records on Friday April 12th and is available on CD and limited one press only indies yellow vinyl… Snap ’em up… Word to the wise.. LP will have a download code and best price pre-order offer available of €10 on the CD and €24 on the indies only yellow vinyl..

Also a new 7 inch vinyl from MURDER CAPITAL!

Bibio have a new album out next week on Warp called “Ribbons” on CD, LP or 2LP indies only…

Staying with big releases and keeping it country as one might say… WALKING ON CARS release their second album on Virgin / EMI next week.. It is called “Colours” and it’s available on CD and LP.. It was recorded in Dingle and in London.. Lead single here

Proper also have the PET SHOP BOYS “Inner Sanctum” Bluray, DVD and 2CD set which was filmed at Londons Royal Opera. 5*’s all over the shop for this.. It is meant to be sensational..

We will have goodies.. The shopping centre will open at 6:30 AM but only, I repeat only, at the entrance at the Marks + Spenser’s / Starbucks, by Falvey’s Chemist.. So the queue can start there for anytime before 6:30.. The car park will open then at 6:35.. Or James Bond through the ceiling if you want.. Look if you fancy pop in a say hello and soak up some of the atmosphere.. It’s always pretty unique.. I suppose it’s our celebration day… We are still here
So on that,

Sin é for this week folks
