The Guggenheim Grotto Release a New Album

A massive Indielimerick favourite The Guggenheim grotto release their third album to date "The Universe is Laughing". I am infatuated with everything this band produces and have been since catching live doing a support slot back in 2005, I have witnessed the lads 3 times in all and each time they are just incredible. Their albums are very rarely off the Ipod and their last album "Happy the Man" has a permanent residency in the car CD player. Ever excited to hear they have released this new record so soon racking up ten songs which just reading the names you could nearly remember from the Live shows, The album is currently available from their website to buy as the lads are still in their second home from home in the states gigging and writing all over the place. Hope to see the lads over here again very soon. There is a free sample of one of the tracks over on their site here :http://www.guggenheimgrotto.com/ You can read the review of their dolans gig from 2009 here
