Album News: Rodrigo y Gabriela - 11:11

Rodrigo y Gabriela - 11:11 album cover art

Imagine my shock to realise that not only is there a new Rodrigo y Gabriela album due out in September, but that the internet has already gotten a hold of a leak. Those bastards. This is one of those albums that it's worth buying though. RyG are one of the best honourary Irish acts out there. If only I could put this in my Best Irish Albums of 2009 list I plan on doing at the end of the year.

It's out September 7th on Rubyworks. Also, check them out this weekend at Electric Picnic.
