News & Bits – July 11th

Not much news this week really, but here we go anyway.

New Releases:
How Garbo Died – Muted Response EP. First “proper” EP from the Aye Tunes favourites. The EP is available here on CD or as a name your price download.
Jonnie Common – Master of None. This seems to have slipped out a little early digitally. You can buy it from iTunes now. A limited vinyl version is available for pre-order here. There’s a launch gig at the Captain’s Rest on July 31st, with the album officially released the following day.
Kid Canaveral – And Another Thing!!! Yay, new Kid Canaveral, backed with a remix by FOUND and a cover of Missionary, by the other KC. Available now from Bandcamp, from other digital places next week.
Le Reno Amps – Construction EP. As mentioned last week, Construction was first available as a bonus with early copies of recent, and excellent, album Appetite, and now gets a stand alone digital release. In addition to Bandcamp it is also available from iTunes etc now too.
Negotiations. & LA MORENA – It’s Dinner Time In Fucking America. Negotiations. is Matthew Liam Healy. LA MORENA is Makayla Armijo. They’ve never met, but have recorded an EP together. A very good EP it is too. You can download it for free here.
PAWS/Lady North – Split 7″. Not out until August 8th, but this split 7″ is the next release from Gerry Loves Records, and available for preorder from Bandcamp. I spent a little while on Friday obsessively refreshing the page until it went on sale to get one of the fancy versions, which are now sold out.
A blogger putting on a gig? What a ridiculous idea, that’ll never work. Our pal Stu from The Tidal Wave of Indifference is venturing into the field anyway, with his first taking place at the Wee Red Bar in Edinburgh on September 24th. The line up is more than decent, with Star Wheel Press, French Wives, the douglas firs and Lost Telegrams playing. Tickets are available here.
We Were Promised Jetpacks have announced details of their second album. Titled In the Pit of the Stomach the album will be released on October 3rd. You can download a new track here.
