New This Week
14th December 2018
This is a recording of a set from Rough Trade East in October last year, when Ranaldo played his 2017 album, Electric Trim, in full apart from one track. The album was a full band affair whilst this is entirely solo - one man, one voice and acoustic guitars. It comes over as a totally different album. Everything is stripped back, intense and emotional.
Andrew Hung from Fuck Buttons returns with An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn - the soundtrack to Jim Hosking's directorial follow up to The Greasy Strangler and stars Aubrey Plaza, Jemaine Clement, Emile Hirsch, Craig Robinson and Matt Berry. With An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn, Hosking makes a triumphant return, bringing his innate talent for outrageous absurdity to this hilariously offbeat romantic comedy.
Limited solid purple vinyl housed in gatefold sleeve with printed inner-sleeve and CD included.
Arguably one of the most acclaimed and loved bands of the past 20 years, by both fans and their musical peers alike, The Beta Band formed in St. Andrews, Scotland, in 1996. Innovative and singular, their unique musical and aesthetic approach to everything they did set them far apart from their musical contemporaries. Together for a relatively short period of time, the three albums and three EPs they released between 1996 and 2004 would nonetheless help define them as one of the most exciting and cherished bands of their generation. Heroes to Zeros is the third and final studio album by The Beta Band released in 2004.
First few come signed by the band.
Brighton punk / riot grrrl group Pussyliquor release a new seven-inch EP on Revulva Records. The What Of It EP was recorded by Marc Waterman and mixed by Oliver Wright and is the follow up to their debut Wonder EP. Featuring Lady Wank, C.U.NT. and lead single My Body My Choice. Hard-core music and even harder core feminist beliefs. Their no nonsense and in your face approach conjures up the feeling and energy of Cosey Fanni Tutti, L7 and The Slits.
