T'is another historical day in the life of Drowned in Sound. Not only has Martha Wainwright sold out The Barfly before the first live advert has run but our second album release finally hits stores this week...
REDJETSON: Debut Album Out NOW!
Its been a few months coming but the debut album from REDJETSON, has been worth the wait, well if you believe our ears and the words of the press!
The Fly have run a glorious 4/5 review in this month's issue and they interviewed the band in Dublin (whilst out there playing with old friends Bloc Party and drinking plenty o’ Guinness) last week for a 'Ones to Watch' feature. Kerrang! have said nice things too like that it is 'A masterpiece of invention' and we can’t ask for much nicer things to be said than that! If you do a little Google there're lots of lovely 'zines describing the album as beautiful in various (blushingly) gushing ways.
You can hear samples of it online HERE

OH MY GOD! IT'S KAISER CHIEFS!:
They may no longer be our babies, but you can't miss them in the media this month. A re-release of their limited edition pop genius debut single 'Oh My God' which we loved and released last year is due very soon - and quite amusingly Q magazine have made a nice cock-up and said we're releasing it this time around. Bless. Watch their world domination continue...
