Hi, welcome to SWIT’s Week, I’m a day late due to Gerry banishing me to Monaghan, but I have returned, climbed through an open window and I manged to put this together before he caught me. Well what a strange week it’s been, with the sad passing of Field Commander Cohen – some say it was the election of Donald J Trumpet that finished him off, I guess we’ll never know. I wonder what the J stands for ? any ideas? But you know through it all you got the music and what great music there’s been, a bumper edition in fact – so wrap your troubles in dreams and check out the best new global indie tunes – Her Little Donkey, Friends Of Gas, Near Myth, Belly Belt, Lessons, Leonard Cohen, Zabrocki, Magana, Awir Leon, Lost Tapes, It’s Not Not, Nunofyrbeeswax, J Alan Schneider, Cómo Vivir En El Campo, Keshevara and The Mary Onettes.
