LUSH

Snail Mail’s full-length debut album, Lush, is a debut for the record books — a refreshing marvel of songwriting and technical composition, that’s both cohesive and explosive — Her voice rises and falls with electricity throughout, spinning with bold excitement and new beginnings at every turn.

Lush feels at times like an emotional rollercoaster, only fitting for Jordan’s explosive, dynamic personality. Growing up in Baltimore suburb Ellicot City, Jordan began her classical guitar training at age five, and a decade later wrote her first audacious songs as Snail Mail. Around that time, Jordan started frequenting local shows in Baltimore, where she formed close friendships within the local scene, the impetus for her to form a band. By the time she was sixteen, she had already released her debut EP, Habit, on local punk label Sister Polygon Records.

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: Superbly upbeat anthems, soaring melodic vox and highly refined writing for a DEBUT album. Unbelievable really, but true. 'Lush' is exactly that, a beautifully emotive and brilliantly constructed ride.

Origami

    THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2016 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

    Formed in London in 1988 by childhood friends Emma Anderson and Miki Berenyi, Lush expertly fused melody and guitars to create a sound that was christened ‘shoegaze’ well after they released their first records.

    Over the course of a decade, the band (which also included Chris Acland on drums and Steve Rippon on bass, later replaced by Phil King) released three studio albums – ‘Spooky’ (1992), ‘Split’ (1994) and ‘Lovelife’ (1996) – to growing critical and commercial success.

    In addition, they put out a mini-album ‘Scar’ (1989) and a string of Eps that were used to create the compilations ‘Gala’ (1990) and ‘Topolino’ (1996), two albums that would ultimately bookend their story. Following the tragic death of Chris Acland in late 1996, the band were left too grief-stricken to continue, calling time shortly after.

    With the passing of almost twenty years, Lush are a band long overdue celebration. Coinciding with the news that the remaining members are reuniting, ‘Origami’ will delight fans further by finally bringing the band’s album catalogue back in to print on vinyl.

    All five LPs are being pressed on a different colour of vinyl and will come housed in a beautiful laminated box as designed by long-time associate and former v23 collaborator Chris Bigg.

    Furthermore, exclusive to ‘Origami’ their final album, ‘Topolino’, gets its first ever LP pressing and a bonus ten-track download album of previously unheard home demos.

    Limited to 500 copies. Includes download codes for all the albums.

    Action From The Basement

    Great new album from this Italian four piece who dash out a noise rock akin to Brainiac, Fugazi, the Pixies and possibly worship at the altar of Touch And Go Records circa 93-95, but that's no bad thing, in fact it's a fresh take on the noise rock staple, more dimension added to the power, there's a disjointed pop that filters through the well orchestrated mush of melody, jangle and hi speed rock and roll.

    Fresh from his success as Kerrier District on Rephlex, and under his own moniker with the "YosepH" LP on Warp, Luke Vibert returns to Ninja Tune under his more off kilter guise as Wagon Christ. He seems to have brought along some of his disco and techno sounds from those two releases as well, mixing up clasic disco-P-funk breaks with squelchy digi-basslines, weird electronics, acid and lush keys. Totally off the wall!
