New In The Racks for 1st July...

There's a real buzz about London post-punk band Warmduscher at the moment, especially after their Glastonbury set at the weekend (catch it on the iplayer).

Locked Down and Stripped Back Volume Two features home recordings of The Wedding Present classics along with a previously unreleased song: ‘That Would Only Happen In A Movie’.

UB40 ft Ali Campbell and Astro - 'Unprecedented is the follow up to 2018's A Real Labour of Love that went to #2 in the UK charts. Recorded in studios in London and Jamaica in between lockdowns, the album is a collection of songs that Ali and Astro have loved for many years by artists they admire such as Steve Wonder and Kris Kristofferson alongside self penned tracks that were inspired by the pandemic and the state of the UK at the moment.'

'Prior to his untimely passing, Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) personally announced a 2017 Grey Daze reunion on social media. As he never got the chance to launch the reunion himself, his bandmates, friends, family, and various collaborators stepped up to give the music the second chance it deserved, finishing what the late singer started.' 

Grey Daze The Phoenix is out on CD and clear vinyl Friday 1st July.

Jack Broadbent, the brilliant blues/rock/slide guitarist and local legend popped in recently. Jack now resides in Canada and tours all around the world but he was back in the UK for some live shows which includes dates with Richard Thompson so it was great to catch up with him. Jack's new album Ride is out now and an absolute belter, so do check it out if you haven't already. In stock on vinyl and LP.


We loved the Glastonbury coverage last weekend and if you missed it there's loads of great stuff to check out on BBCiplayer, and not just the headliners but other fabulous acts like Big Thief, Mitski, Cate Le Bon, Wet Leg, Bicep and Nubya Garcia to name a few - something for all the family!

Director / Writer / Editor / Music / Art Direction / Cinematography:
Gints Zilbalodis

Country & Language: Latvia (wordless)

There’s lots of animation in the world of cinema that goes well beyond the bland offerings of Pixar. Here a boy and a small bird cross a magical island on a mysterious motorbike to, well, get back home, one supposes – and they are pursued by an ever present darkness that looks like a vaguely human-shaped sticky mass of black treacle. The boy is determined not to be consumed or trapped by this shadowy presence. Zilbalodis has made this little simple yet strange masterpiece pretty well single-handedly. It’s a surreal fairy tale about courage, fear, hope, making connections, love and struggle. Even when the animation is at its simplest it has considerable charm. It has some haunting music and sounds and never seems merely ponderous. In fact, in general, it masterfully evokes the emotion of its subject matter. Just the job, I would say, for those who enjoy experience of letting their spirits fly.

2022 / 20 mins

“The cheating husband, the pregnant wife, the infamous sister-in-law. All of them have something to hide, and no one is willing to open up.” (The filmmakers)

Director: Javier Perez de Lema Campos

Produced by: Julia Smith & Amelia Leader

Screenwriters: Director, Julia Smith & Amelia Leader


Paloma Lopez, Jamie Wigley, Jasmin Mitchell, Andre van Rooyen & Victor Koundourakis

Cinematography: Jessica Tooth / Editor: Danay Zemichael

Costume & Production Designer: Emma Boogaard

A professional looking job with a strong opening that introduces its story with picture and sound. It’s well performed and the dialogue is crisp. Moreover, the direction and editing build up a certain tension and the lighting has a rather tasty noir-ish feel. The film is not afraid of using a well-suited musical score and I sat through the whole thing without feeling I was merely fulfilling a duty of fairness. It takes quite some doing, I think, to fill 20 minutes at this level. It’s got a bit of a twist and a nice touch of Agatha Christie. In fact, I’ve seen less involving Hollywood jobs.
