One of the most intriguing Irish releases of 2007 is to get a US release.

Giraffe Running’s ambitious self-titled double-album saw Dublin bass and drums duo Greg Barrett and Hag enlist the help of Ian Williams (Battles), Max Tundra, Eoin Dillon, Matthew Bolger, Somadrone and Miriam Ingram to transform their original five tracks into some hugely engaging sounds.

The album will be released this coming spring in the US on Austin, Texas label Australian Cattle God, a label which has also provided a home for Irish alt-rockers The Redneck Manifesto.
