New This Week
23rd August 2019
Rough Trade Exclusive cloudy clear vinyl.
Anak Ko, the third album from LA based Jay Som (Melina Duterte) comes in cloudy clear and it’s bloomin’ marvellous. This record has all the rosy goodness the shoegaze sound has to offer blended in an oat-milkshake of soothed indie which, is then topped with a lyrically ‘heartbreakers’ cherry because why not.
Really lovely stuff and with a comfortingly titled track listing including Tenderness and Get Well, all in all this is a feel-good winner.
Baby blue and baby pink versions.
Back when Coldplay were nothing more than the next Travis, and global domination was but a glint in Chris Martin's eye, they released their first EP, Brothers and Sisters. 20 years on, you have another chance to own it, but this time they have been split into two 7's with the same A-side but different B-sides. There is the sisters version on baby blue vinyl and brothers version on baby pink. Take that gender stereotypes.
Rough Trade Exclusive doublemint green with heavy Halloween orange, orange krush and Easter yellow splatter.
Their Relapse Records debut with their highly ambitious new album, In the Spirit World Now! The album sees Ceremony at the height of their creative output, as the always-evolving Rohnert Park quintet take their cue from post punk and rock to create one of the summer's most compelling and infectious records.
When listening to Teeth, the second single from Heavenly signed Working Men’s Club, you might be disorientating-ly delighted to discover that it literally makes no sense and that is the whole point. A little bit maddening and a whole lotta stomp-able, we’ve come to realise the best way to dance along to this is to clench your shoulders and just sorta swing.
Nothing says exciting like a good old-fashioned remix so now you can own both the original recording and a Gabe Gurnsey remix all in one complete 12”. Excuse us while we get back to our edgy groovin’.
