Stereolab

Peng!

    ‘Peng!’ is the band’s 1992 debut album. 

    Often noted as being one of the most influential and original bands of the 90s, Stereolab were formed by Tim Gane and Laetitia Sadier in London in 1990 and released 13 studio albums, 15 EPs and numerous singles. Simon Reynolds commented in Rolling Stone that the group’s early records form “an endlessly seductive body of work that sounds always the same, always different.”

    Theirs is a rich, overflowing palette, readily able to blur the gulf between Os Mutantes and the BBC Radiophonic Orchestra; merge Krzysztof Komeda with the Velvet Underground, Francoise Hardy with Neu! and Burt Bacharach with Esquivel. A deluxe blend, in other words, with ingredients plucked assiduously from pop’s coolest outposts: 50’s lounge, Rive Gauche chanson, Brazilian tropicalia, North American art rock, East European film music, Krautrock. hi-fi test recordings, mood music and more. Somehow they distil these apparently incongruent components into an ageless exotica that is all their own.

    Thee MVPs

    Sesh

      Thee MVPs are closing out a very solid 2017 with a brand new 45 of two solid gold rippers. Already this year the band have smashed a 36 day world tour across America, SXSW and the UK, opening for notable acts like Meatbodies, Television, Mystery Lights, Night Beats and Pulled Apart By Horses as well as numerous international and national shows.

      In the final months of a year we can all agree has been caked in shredded nerves, it's only fitting that Thee MVPs newest single ‘Sesh’ is a 3 minute stomper of low tuned riffs set against some Weezer-style vocals, which addresses the issue of the ‘session’. It only takes about 10 seconds to realise the lyrics ain’t the happy message that’s being rolled out on the upbeat guitars. A song about dealing with your lot as a millennial and using the drink just a tad too much to see you through the week, it’s the Thursday morning rush of the guilts soundtrack you brought on yourself for already having two benders this week.

      Mastered at Abbey Road and recorded by hard hitting producer Wayne Adams, Thee MVPs know their way around a tune and a riff and a beat in that way only a group with 200+ gigs and countless tours will know, with an upcoming UK tour supporting Together Pangea and some special release shows planned across the UK and mainland EU, dig in deep to these very excellent cuts of classic / punk / garage / pop / whatever rock.

        Cassels

        Flock Analogy

          The Too Pure Singles Club is proud to announce the forthcoming 7” by the fantastic Cassels …. Brought together by the low-lights of West Oxfordshire life before they were even teenagers, Cassels are an explosive two-piece comprised of brothers Jim (guitar/vocals) and Loz (drums/vocals) Beck. The band combine massive slabs of grunge riffing with a punk aesthetic and socially charged lyrics expressing themes of isolation, anger, boredom and disillusionment with society at large.

          Grief Tourist

          Strigoi

            Too Pure Singles Club announce ‘Strigoi’, the latest release from Grief Tourist.

            Grief Tourist were formed by drummer Lee Vincent and inspired by Ceremony’s ‘Rohnert Park’ album. You can tell, too. “I would send GarageBand recordings to Rich [Wells], who lives in Leeds,” says Vincent. “He would scream over the recordings and record them on a dictaphone in his front room, then send them back. The recordings had that gross quality we wanted, so we definitely wanted to replicate that when we recorded properly. He’s upgraded to screaming in his mate’s carpet shop now.” Morgan Sinclair completed the line-up and off the trio went to a Perspex Flesh show, which also influences their bludgeoning punk.

              Hippies Vs Ghosts

              Wazo

                Hippies Vs Ghosts are primarily Owain Ginsberg from Masters In France / We Are Animal and ‘Wazo’ will be the band’s debut 7”.

                Since blasting on to the scene some 18 months ago, under this particular guise, Ginsberg has regularly blown listeners away with his kaleidoscopic, instrumental Morricone meets Krautrock sound, during which time he’s served up a number of quality EPs, one off tracks and a stunning debut album, ‘Mother Tongue’ (one of 2014’s finest).

                In a parting gesture to a rather productive 2014, Hippies Vs Ghosts sign off with brand new 7″ single ‘Wazo’. ‘Wazo’ captures the very essence of Hippies Vs Ghosts; Krautrock indebted psychedelia of epic proportions. Propelled onward by a chugging bass and persistent percussives, it hurtles along at breakneck speed with menacing intent, bending and contorting through a sea of swirling noise and scorching riffs. Urgent, catchy, and oh so irresistible!

                B-side companion ‘Hibou Calling’ is a much more tempered affair. A gentle acoustic strum, soft percussion and hushed repeated vocals fuse with some floaty sonic sounding atmospherics to soothe the soul and whisk one’s mind away to a lofty transcendental plain.

                ‘Wazo’ is released as part of the Too Pure Singles Club.

                Deaf Club

                Moving Still

                  Deaf Club, the collective identity of Polly Mackey (Vocals/Guitar), Paul Bates (Bass), Jac Roberts (Guitar), Sian Rosier (Keyboards) and Tom Ryan (Drums), first hit the UK scene in 2011 with their self released, four track EP, ‘Lull’. Instantly receiving critical acclaim, the band followed up with a Kissability sponsored two track cassette ‘Sunday’/’Mirrors’ which sold out in a heart beat.

                  Building on this already remarkable progress, ‘Moving Still’ is yet further evidence of a young, but powerful creative force rapidly gaining momentum as they hone their craft and refine the sound that defines Deaf Club. Bellowing guitars, an urgent, yearning vocal delivery and a driving rhythm section that hammers the point home. ‘Lights’ perfectly compliments ‘Moving Still’ with a catchy chorus and measured mystique.

                  Introducing New York based, alt. favourite Hesta Prynn. If you haven’t heard her brand of post-hipster-art-pop, you’re about to.

                  Having spent the past year touring with the likes of 30 Seconds To Mars, Tegan and Sara and Jay-Z and working in studio with everyone from Chuck Brody (Lykki Li, Ra Ra Riot, Wu Tang Clan) to Bear Hands to Clown from Slipknot and Tim Harrington from Les Savy Fav, this former Northern State MC is now set for her first official UK single release, "Turn It Gold".

                  "Turn It Gold" is an upbeat party track with an indie twist and a hook that just won’t let you be. Hesta (aka Julie Potash) says of the track “I wrote this song about partying in New York with my friends and that song that you just don't want to turn off. The jam that you love. The one you make a gold record in your headphones by playing over and over again”.

                  “Hesta Prynn is the cool funny alt. superstar you wish presented the news every night” – NME.

                  Turn It Gold (Bright Lights Bright Lights Remix)

                  The awesome 1992 debut album from one of the most unique and compelling female artists of the past 20 years. A powerful, groundbreaking set, "Dry" serves as an introduction to Harvey's fierce, blues-tinged guitar and highly visual lyrical angle that picks at the scabs of female iconography. On these raw, angry songs she's joined by musicians Stephen Vaughan (bass) and Robert Ellis (drums, vocals, harmonium). Includes classic songs "Sheela-Na-Gig", "Dress" and "Oh My Lover". Essential.
