Press for The Birthday Suit's debut album once again featured prominently in our news feed this week, with an article penned by Idlewild guitarist and songwriter appearing in The Skinny, explaining why one of his heroes is the immortal Thurston Moore.
Rod also took the time to chat to the folks over at GaydarNation, giving one of the funniest interviews we've read all month, and the band's debut album, The Eleventh Hour, picked up a great review on This Is Fake DIY, and had one of its tracks featured on the Best In British Music Show With Tara O., as well as Bethan's Rock n Roll Book Club on Amazing Radio and Magnet Magazine (online).
Although The Eleventh Hour is due for release on 11th of November 2011 (that's 11.11.11) via Sing It Alone Records, the band have made the album available to download from their official website today at a special early bird price for fans - £5!
The Moth & The Mirror picked up a fantastic review from our friends at Geeks.co.uk, hailing Honestly, This World as "...a great record for the inevitable dark, moody evenings".
The Scottish super-group also saw one of their tracks given a spin by Ally McCrae on his BBC Introducing. . . in Scotland show on Radio 1, as well as having the Headron remix of album track "Germany" featured on FAMEmagazine
Honestly, This World will be released on November 7th via Olive Grove Records as a download and limited edition CD.
The Lowriders released their debut album at the beginning of the week, picking up a great 3 out 5 star review from Panic Dots, as well as seeing album track "Big Moustache" featured on Echoes And Dust, Extreme Listening Mode and AAA Music.
Catch their impressive live show at one of the dates listed below:

ABoF were also very pleased to announce that HP and Last.fm have plans for three more pop-up sessions, starting this coming Monday at 8pm at The Lock Tavern. DELS (aka Kieran Dickins) will be performing a live set, so if you're around Camden on Monday, make sure you pop down.
The Leisure Society are also lined-up for the pop-up session treatment on 24th November at Tamesis Dock. For all the latest information keep up to date on HP's "Artists Lounge".
This week also saw our very own Paul and Claire ABoF grace the pages of the legendary NME Magazine, where they had a chat about the financial aspects of running an independent company, and how they cope on a day-to-day basis. Make sure you grab a copy of the November 5th issue of the NME (out now).
Next week sees debut album releases from two of our amazing Scottish artists - The Moth & The Mirror's Honestly, This World, and The Birthday Suit's The Eleventh Hour. Both already feature prominently in our weekly news feed, and we're sure the press is going to go crazy for them when they're released next week.
Until then, ABoF out!
