EMBRACE

The third in the releases where label favourites are represented for today and backed with a remix / version by a contemporary producer of repute, presents 80s leftfield pop-rock band In Embrace. Appearing here are two versions of The Living Daylights, the original long version and a re-recorded live take, plus additional versions by Timothy J Fairplay.

Coming out of the midlands Post Punk / fanzine scene Gary Knight and friends formed the original incarnation of In Embrace in 1981. Picked up by Glass Records, the early, edgy live recording were re-proposed as Knight developed his 'non-musicianship' with an interest in the possibilities of the studio.

The original "Uncut" version takes it's anti-war themed vocal and lays it over a Jah Wobble inspired bassline and tense electronic rhythm. As it builds, the pressure mounts a visceral sense of oblivion of 9+ minutes of deep dubbing and repeating refrain.

Next to this the "Live In Studio" version sees the later 3 piece band replay it out in an energetic raw form that makes a worth addition. Handing the versions, plus backing tracks to Timothy J Fairplay offered a radical departure. His brooding Redub and Bonus mixes take the track to a darker place, drawing out the induced, relentless madness Knight always intended.

Embrace

The Good Will Out - Vinyl Reissue

    Following in the footsteps of Oasis and the Verve, Embrace became a pop sensation in post-Brit-pop Britain, breaking through in the late ‘90s. The group—hailing from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England—had a knack for big, anthemic hooks, which they transform into sweeping, sprawling, lugubrious rockers. This synthesis earned them a strong fanbase with their first singles in 1997, and their debut album, The Good Will Out.

    Originally released on Virgin's Hut subsidiary in 1998, The Good Will Out became one of the fastest selling debut albums by a British artist, going on to sell over 500,000 copies domestically. Certified gold on the first day of release, the album hit the number one spot and spent 24 weeks in the Top 100, spawning three Top 10 singles, “All You Good Good People” “Come Back To What You Know” and “My Weakness Is None Of Your Business” together with two further Top 40 hits, “One Big Family” and “Fireworks.” Critically acclaimed across the board, NME hailed the album as the “one of the great debut albums of the past decade”.

    Pressed on heavyweight 180gm vinyl, include DL codes.

    Embrace The Fuzzy Unknown

    Three years have passed since Correatown released the critically acclaimed dream-pop album ‘Pleiades’. Highline are proud to announce the release of her follow up, ‘Embrace The Fuzzy Unknown’.

    Having built a fanbase with her debut album ‘Spark. Burn. Fade’, Correatown’s listeners continued to grow through her work in TV and film music and her collaboration with Tom Brosseau as Les Shelleys. ‘Pleiades’ saw Correatown expanding both her global audience and her sonic horizons.

    Correatown’s new album reflects and revels in change and evolution. Songs wonder about purpose, wonder about the future and wonder if this is all that there is. Without answers to these questions, the music implores us to ‘Embrace The Fuzzy Unknown’.

    The album was produced by Angela Correa and Dan Long (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Son Volt, TV On The Radio).

    Correatown’s music has appeared on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, ‘Ugly Betty’, ‘How I Met Your Mother’ and ‘Private Practice’ and films ‘The Lucky One’ and ‘Admission’.

    Beautifully crafted ethereal pop music that will appeal to fans of Feist, Regina Spektor and Best Coast.
