This Weeks Thing

Standard

Much later than usual, and with it being Easter Monday probably incomplete. Some records might have slipped to being released on Tuesday instead of today, if so I’ll do an update tomorrow.
Also this week I’ll make another bold attempt at getting some records reviewed, and report back on what I thought of Hinterland.

Records:
Pretty busy week for new releases really, including one excellent album and a cracking single.
The excellent album would be Avoid Zombies, the second album by Super Adventure Club. I’ve not got round to reviewing this yet, but it lives up to the promise of the single from a wee while ago that I loved. Great stuff.
As for the cracking single, that’s the new one from Over The Wall, Settle Down. I attended the launch party for this at lunchtime today, which was quite splendid, and had some nice sandwiches. The record is good too.
Also out is These Old Traditions, a mini album by Stevie And The Moon, Home and the Wildhunt, the debut album from Woodenbox With a Fistful of Fivers and the gorgeous split single by Conquering Animal Sound & Debutant that I’ve talked about a few times before, and should be properly reviewing when my copy arrives in the post.
Remembering, the new album by Love.Stop.Repeat is also released this week.
Their full debut album is due shortly, but in the meantime Sparrow and the Workshop have a new single out, I Will Break You. Crystals Fall, the album, follows on April 19th.
Finally (that I can see from digging around) Schnapps release their double A side debut single Crossdresser/More To Life than Peach. It’s out today on download, while the 7″ will be released on April 14th. There’s an instore gig at Glasgow’s Apple store on Thursday (the 8th) and another in Avalanche in Glasgow next Monday, the 12th.

Gigs:
No one wanted the gig guide back, but here’s a quick one for the week anyway.
On Wednesday, Glasgow explodes, again.
At Bloc there’s the latest Detour Scotland podcast launch gig, with Oliver Stays, The Void and more. Over at Stereo there’s a Ten Tracks gig, with Aye Tunes favourites Louise McVey and Cracks in the Concrete playing, along with Fur Hood and La Somnable, all for the super cheap price of £1.
Also on Wednesday there’s the Glasgow leg of Meursault’s album launch shows – the Edinburgh leg takes place on Saturday – at The Captain’s Rest. These shows will be your first chance to pick up the new album before it gets a full release.
