Top Ten Albums of 2011 from Indielimerick

Another year down and what a year for great gigs it was, 21 gigs reviewed for indielimerick. Gig of the year goes to Ryan Adams live at Glasgow back in June, An amazing night of 27 songs from my favourite artist. Review here.

Indielimerick is 5 years old this year and I finally brought out a compilation album of limerick acts/bands. The Charity album was great fun putting together and I am absolutely delighted with the response it has been getting.
The New Reindeer Age was limited to 500 copies and a few are still left and are currently on sale around Limerick and also online here. (Shops stocking the album : Limerick Self Storage, Learning Hub Limerick, Beats Working Foxes Bow, Dolans Warehouse and the Curragower Pub.)
The album features on my top ten albums for 2011, yes I'm extremely biased but the album has a seriously good tracklist, If you get a chance pop out and buy a copy! more info here.
