Posted by Lee Conybeare on

Happy New Year To All Our Customers, we are looking forward to sharing lots of new music plus Record Store Day and live in store music with you in 2024

New Releases

English musician and songwriter Marika Hackman releases new album Big Sigh on Fri 12th January.

'Big Sigh is the “hardest record” Marika has ever made. As the title suggest, it is a relief of sorts – of sadness, of stress and lust, but mostly relief. Co-produced with Sam Petts Davies (Frank Ocean, Radiohead, Red Hot Chilli Peppers) and Charlie Andrew (Alt J, Wolf Alice, London Grammar). Lyrically there’s always romance alongside grief, with elements of vulnerability and feeling trapped.

“This album took a long time to make. It was not easy, and by the time I got to the end of it I was quiet. I wanted to be away from it and let it sit in its own space. Now the dust has settled and I’ve got re-enter the world of Big Sigh, and I’m excited. Stepping into a new world, moving forward, chipping away. Breathe in, breathe out. Big sigh.”

CD version also in stock.

South London electronic musician Sampha's Dual EP 'marks its 10th anniversary with a retail exclusive orange vinyl pressing. Recorded in his bedroom in Mordern, South London, Dual provided an intimate and idiosyncratic glimpse of Sampha’s artistic intent to come, and has seen multiple tracks reworked as part of his recent LAHAI and Satellite Business live shows in 2023.'

 Orange 12" vinyl

'Beautifully produced and rich in scope - Iechyd Da is English singer-songwriter, musician and film score composer Bill Ryder-Jones’ most ambitious record to date. At times joyous and grand, at others intimate and heartbreaking, the past few years spent producing other artists have provided that gentle nudge to expand into new territory, from kids choirs and tender strings to dramatically re-contextualised disco samples.'

Powder Blue Vinyl and CD available

40th Anniversary edition of The Triffids' Treeless Plain - limited white vinyl in gatefold sleeve

This special 40th Anniversary reissue is pressed on limited White Vinyl and is housed in the original gatefold sleeve. The album has been remixed by original engineer Nick Mainsbridge using the original 24 track masters.'
