Out of curiosity I checked over lunch when Wolf Parade's new album was due for release. By sheer coincidence it was released today! So I bought it although I have no idea if it's any good or not. Sure I'll know soon enough. I also bought Fleet Foxes and had a good listen to that last night. Pretty good!
Mercury Rev announced a series of intimate gigs including one in Cork on Halloween, which I snapped up tickets for as soon as they were out. Except I'll be in Bahrain at a wedding that week. D'oh! Ah well, I'll have no shortage of takers I would think... even in Cork.
