Herman Dune - Giant


2006 has thus far been of quite a vintage as far as music is concerned. Things just seem to be getting better and better, rarely does a week pass without a record which changes my life in some way. Usually it's a record by some exiting new band which takes me completely by suprise but now and again an old favorite returns and delivers the goods. That was the case this week when some kind soul sent me a copy of the new Herman Dune album. My fingers tingled with exitement as I inserted the magical silver disc into the CD player. Often you can expect too much from a band which have previously brightened the darker corners of your life but whatever you want from this record is what you will receive. I can't big it up enough, just put your hand in your pocket and you'll wonder how you ever survived without one. That's another thing actually, the release schedule for Giant is a bit strange to sat the least. It's out now if your in France. If you live in continental Europe you'll have to wait until November 10th and if your unfortunate enough to live in the UK or US then you won't see it until January.

  2. Managed to catch them by somewhat of a surprise on The Kooks UK tour. The date for the Kooks had origionally been scheduled for sometime in October but they had to play this month instead so Herman Dune were supporting. Managed to pick up a copy of the CD early from the guys themselves... result. Awesome and also the crowd in Norwich (although I'd expect didn't expect them) loved them.

  3. Hi, I somehow got this album in the UK and am also in love with it. I reviewed it on my blog too. I think we rate the album equally highly!
