Piccadilly Records
Well, another week begins its inevitable and speedy conclusion, bringing forth a host of new releases for your listening pleasure. Fever Ray, though excellently synthy and technically superb, has possibly one of the oddest / most disarming covers i've seen for a while, meaning that all I can see is THAT FACE whenever I listen to it. It's like Windowlicker all over again.

*shudders*

Another sign of Lancaster's world domination (I have fond / not fond / completely forgotten memories of the musicians co-op where this LP was recorded) comes this week in the form of the Lovely Eggs' superb new album 'This Is Eggland' sounding like a rawkous mash-up of garage, skate punk and rock n' roll. It's never a disappointment when they come out with something new, and this one is no different.

There are no less that FIVE Bowie albums given the reissue treatment with 2017 remasters all round, should you find your collection is missing that one (or five) vital addition (s). As far as box-sets go, we have you all covered too, with the second part of the superb Bert Jansch retrospective 'A Man I'd Rather Be' hitting the shelves, which are straining under the weight of these stunning Felt reissues. It's a good week for box-sets, no denying that.

You may have already heard by now, but one of our absolute faves, Whyte Horses have a new album due out soon (following up from our favourite LP of 2016, 'Pop Or Not' ), and they're hosting their release party here! Details available at the foot of the mailout, tickets aren't required but best pre-order the indies exclusive vinyl early if you want it signed, it's going to be a popular one!

Now, I know he'll probably not be very happy at me for this one (he doesn't like to make a fuss), but all-round excellent human and my own synth-nerd SO Ryan is leaving us.. to go somewhere where the Japanese food is supposedly excellent. As we've all enjoyed a bit of the 'beach at some point (most points), we'll be attending his farewell musical concert-gig at Soup Kitchen on the 3rd of March. It would make sense if you did too, because he's very good, and does all the stuff on purpose. Tickets still available here, but be quick before all the cool people buy them.

And after you've lost your cool to Horsebeach, you can head to the Peer Hat for dancing party Sonic Sahara, featuring shop favourites Les Yeux Orange and our main man Patch! Tickets here...

I have to go now, because it's time to make a brew.. and I am getting ravenously hungry smelling Matt's curried foods.

I love curried foods.

Barry.

Lovely Eggs - This Is Eggland Lovely Eggs - This Is Eggland

LP - £15.49
CD - £10.99

Barry says: Arguably eggs, but undeniably lovely. It's no secret that I really like the Lovely Eggs, but have found my inner appreciation of perfect production has (ridiculously) hampered my enjoyment of this impeccable duo. I can stop being ludicrous now anyway, because 'This Is Eggland' sounds amazing, and every bit as real as their entire, superb canon.
Insecure Men - Insecure Men Insecure Men - Insecure Men

CD - £11.49
Due: TBC
Coloured LP - £17.99

In many ways Insecure Men - the band led by the fiercely talented Saul Adamczewski and his schoolmate and stabilising influence, Ben Romans-Hopcraft - are the polar opposite of the Fat White Family. Whereas sleaze-mired, country-influenced, drug-crazed garage punks the Fat Whites are a “celebration of everything that is wrong in life”, Insecure Men, who blend together exotica, easy listening, lounge and timeless pop music, are, by comparison at least, the last word in wholesomeness.
Fever Ray - Plunge Fever Ray - Plunge

LP - £18.99
CD - £9.99
2xDeluxe LP - £35.99
Due: TBC

Barry says: Fever ray's newest outing sees the Dreijer's in fine form once again, mixing throbbing synths and soaring vocal harmonies with distinctly modern production touches. It's a fascinating and enthralling journey, and totally essential.
Hieroglyphic Being - The Red Notes Hieroglyphic Being - The Red Notes

2xLP - £23.99
CD - £12.99

Matt says: Cosmic techno stalwart, Chicago dance archivist and general underground demigod Jamal Moss returns to Soul Jazz for some of his best work yet - serious!
Various Artists - J-Jazz: Deep Modern Jazz From Japan 1969-1984 Various Artists - J-Jazz: Deep Modern Jazz From Japan 1969-1984

CD - £9.99
3xLtd LP - £23.99

Patrick says: BBE take the weight off your wallet here, shifting the focus from Japanese ambient to the nation's most loved musical form - jazz. At least £64 billion cheaper than collecting each of these gems in their original form, J-Jazz sweeps through spiritual, modal, bop and free with a focus on total excellence.
Olden Yolk - Olden Yolk Olden Yolk - Olden Yolk

CD - £11.99
Coloured LP - £17.99

Barry says: The familia, often-tread middle ground between folk and psychedelia is a dangerous one. On one hand, you have bands which sound like they could have come from any era in the past 30 years, and could slip away a mere month later. On the other hand, you have the undiluted hypnotic beauty and filmic soaring majesty of Olden Yolk, perfectly marrying the mind-melting chemical meltdown of the 70's with the pristine production and thematic purity of todays folk. Superb.
Mamuthones - Fear On The Corner Mamuthones - Fear On The Corner

LP - £19.49
CD - £12.99

Barry says: Sitting comfortably between the art-rock angularity of Devo and the spoken word aesthetic and visceral drive of Sleaford Mods (as well as the already mentioned Talking Heads and Miles Davis influences). Mamuthones manage to take us through a tour of a wide variety of impeccably absorbed influences without sounding like any of them. Fascinating and ultimately brilliant weirdo rock.
The Low Anthem - The Salt Doll Went To Measure The Depths Of The Sea The Low Anthem - The Salt Doll Went To Measure The Depths Of The Sea

LP - £18.99
CD - £10.99
Coloured LP - £20.99

Barry says: Stunningly delicate in parts, but imbued with a bright and peaceful electronic counterpoint, 'The Salt Doll...' takes all the best parts of the 'Folktr*nica' (don't make me say it) craze of yesteryear, but deshittens it significantly. Properly lovely this.
Alela Diane - Cusp Alela Diane - Cusp

LP - £15.99
CD - £9.99

Alela Diane returns with new album Cusp, the long-awaited follow up to 2013’s critically-acclaimed About Farewell. Whilst both albums could be described as born of love, Cusp is perhaps love at its purest, and most complex - for in music, one of the most transformative experiences a woman can have is also an unspoken artistic taboo: Have a baby if you must. But for goodness’ sake, don’t write songs about it. Portland, Oregon based singer-songwriter Alela Diane has a problem with that.
YoshimiO / Susie Ibarra / Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe - Flower Of Sulphur YoshimiO / Susie Ibarra / Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe - Flower Of Sulphur

2xLP - £20.99
CD - £13.99

‘Flower Of Sulphur’ is a transfixing piece of continuous improvisation from three experimental luminaries: multi-instrumentalist YoshimiO (Boredoms, OOIOO, SAICOBAB), internationally acclaimed percussionist Susie Ibarra and artist Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (Lichens).
Death And Vanilla - The Tenant Death And Vanilla - The Tenant

Coloured LP - £17.99

Following on from the deluxe reissue ‘Vampyr’ last year, comes Death And Vanilla’s unreleased live score of ‘The Tenant’ on limited edition magenta vinyl. Originally scored by Philippe Sarde, this release sees Death And Vanilla reimagine the film’s soundtrack four decades on for a new audience.
Palm - Rock Island Palm - Rock Island

CD - £9.99
Coloured LP - £19.99

On Rock Island, their second LP, Palm produces evidence of a distinct musical language, developed over time, in isolation, and out of necessity. On the island, melodies are struck on what might be shells or spines. Rhythms are scratched out, swept over, scratched again. Individual instruments, and sometimes entire sections, skip and stutter. There is the sense of a music box with wonky tension or a warped transmission in which all the noise is taken for signal.
Dope Feat Julian Cope - The Dee Dee Ramone Story Dope Feat Julian Cope - The Dee Dee Ramone Story

Coloured LP - £14.49

This limited edition LP of 500 copies features two side-long epics each of over 20 minutes in duration, and both tracks replete with that same gargantuan sonic overload of the band’s two previous releases.
Prins Emanuel - Arbete / Fritid Prins Emanuel - Arbete / Fritid

2xLP - £16.99

Patrick says: Fasaan favourite Prins Emanuel drops a conceptual double pack on Music For Dreams, fusing dub, afro, new age and boogie into a groove heavy masterpiece perfect for nights on the tiles or days on the sofa. If you dug on Studio's "West Coast", then you'll be all over this!
Eiger Drums Propaganda - Eiger Drums Propaganda Eiger Drums Propaganda - Eiger Drums Propaganda

Ltd LP - £20.99

Patrick says: Killer French kosmische with a hint of the new age from new group Eiger Drums Propaganda. Boasting one half of the Pilotwings alongside a crack team of musical madheads, this 5D trip is another essential from the Macadam Mambo crew.
Public Access TV - Street Safari Public Access TV - Street Safari

LP - £16.99
CD - £9.99

The band, comprised of frontman and lead-singer John Eatherly, Xan Aird, Max Peebles, and Pete Star, entered the studio to record the new album in fall 2017 with Producer Patrick Wimberly (Beyonce, Chairlift, MGMT, Blood Orange) armed with a plethora of songs they'd written documenting the tumultuous last few years of their lives.
Gift Wrap - Losing Count Gift Wrap - Losing Count

LP - £13.99

For some time now, Brendon Avalos has been forging a path for himself among the clamor of emerging indie artists as the bassist and vocalist of Brooklyn punk trio B Boys. Now, he is releasing his first solo effort - a full length album entitled Losing Count - under the moniker Gift Wrap.
Wareika - Water, Sky, Sun, Wood Wareika - Water, Sky, Sun, Wood

CD - £11.99
2xLtd LP - £21.99

Patrick says: Wareika deliver the chakra-aligning house goods here for Mule Musiq, reducing a four hour live jam into an hour long LP split into four different movements. Organic, ecstatic and essential for anyone looking for a mind expanding dance floor experience.
Future Islands - In The Fall Future Islands - In The Fall

Coloured LP - £14.99

Future Islands have mastered their style, which Rolling Stone describes as, “adding punishing heft to simple pop melodies, making blippy electropop sound oddly confrontational”. Future Islands themselves term this “Post-Wave,” taking in part from the emotional fragility of New Wave and coupling it with the power and drive of Post-Punk.
John Bramwell - Leave Alone The Empty Spaces John Bramwell - Leave Alone The Empty Spaces

LP - £16.99
CD - £9.99

I Am Kloot’s songwriter and frontman, John Bramwell, has announced the release of his first studio solo album “Leave Alone The Empty Spaces” The record is a stunning showcase of John’s skillful, widely acclaimed songwriting and his unique voice.
Phobophobes - Miniature World Phobophobes - Miniature World

LP - £18.99
CD - £9.99
Coloured LP - £21.99

Their influences are widespread - and atypical - with the music closer to the spirit of apocalyptic garage rock than it is to consumer pop. Think Wall of Voodoo, Joe Meek and Leonard Cohen via Monty Python and The Magic Roundabout. Jamie and Chris, both south Londoners, founded the band in 2013.
S. Carey - Hundred Acres S. Carey - Hundred Acres

LP - £0.00
Due: 8th Jun
CD - £9.99
Coloured LP - £18.99

By giving equal status to the indifference of nature and the concerns of a material world -- while employing more pop-oriented structures instead of the Steve Reich - or Talk Talk-ian repetitions of his past work - a new balance is struck that creates something unique.
Mark Renner - Few Traces Mark Renner - Few Traces

2xLP - £23.99
CD - £12.49

Patrick says: RVNG take a tour of Mark Renner's 80s activities here, providing us with a bedroom pop spectacular built around skeletal drum machines, haunting synths, hazy guitar and Renner's poetic vocals.
Go Kart Mozart - Mozart's Mini-Mart Go Kart Mozart - Mozart's Mini-Mart

LP - £22.99
CD - £10.99

People of the past were known to use that notable phrase: ‘to blow your mind’ – I think it is time to scatter the dust off this old expression and to reinstate it because we can think of no better epithet to describe the effect these songs will have on the discerning listener other than to say they will positively ‘blow your mind’!!
Various Artists - Colin Curtis Presents Jazz Dance Fusion Various Artists - Colin Curtis Presents Jazz Dance Fusion

2xLP - £16.99
2xCD - £14.99
Due: 9th Mar

Patrick says: Time to dig out your two tone spats and baggy suits as legendary jazz dance DJ Colin Curtis takes us for a tour of his record box. A great snapshot of one of the UK's most extraordinary musical scenes.

Jack Cutter / Paqua - Serpent Strut / Ruby Running Faker - Larry Heard / Emperor Machine Remixes Jack Cutter / Paqua - Serpent Strut / Ruby Running Faker - Larry Heard / Emperor Machine Remixes

Ltd 12" - £9.99

Matt says: Nice Brucey bonus for fans of the ultimate Balearic collection. Larry Heard and Emperor Machine's remix never made the boxset, but they're more than worthy additions to this most pretigious collection. Super limited too so don't dilly dally.
Cherrystones - BAH042 Cherrystones - BAH042

12" - £10.99

Patrick says: Another week, another essential release from Bahnsteig 23. As ever, we're on a weirdo tip, but Cherrystones ups the oddball ante seriously here with some seriously spannered frequencies. Twisting Afro-funk, French pop, punk, Turkish tackle and NDW inside out, Godsy has done it again.
Gwen McCrae - Keep The Fire Burning / Funky Sensation Gwen McCrae - Keep The Fire Burning / Funky Sensation

12" - £11.99

Patrick says: Definitely in the top ten disco records of all time, Gwen's soulful, sassy and stomping "Keep The Fire Burning" has raised the roof consistently for almost forty years now. Available here in its full length as an officially remastered reissue, with rare-groove classic "Funky Sensation" on the flip no less, it's gonna continue to do damage for the next forty years.
Giuseppe Leonardi - Jack Of All Trades Giuseppe Leonardi - Jack Of All Trades

12" - £11.99

Patrick says: Trippy heat from Giuseppe Leonardi here on International Major Label, combining the best bits of digidub, slow disco and Jan Hammer's Miami Vice score into four excellent examples of Balearic beat.
ELO - Visitante ELO - Visitante

12" - £10.99

Matt says: Another highly electric offering from this Columbian label. Gleefully running headlong into techno territory, ELO displays an astute control of his machinary.
DS - Schnitzel Cuts 004 DS - Schnitzel Cuts 004

12" - £9.99

Patrick says: Yeaah boi... Those Dutch house heroes get back in the kitchen with a spaced out and synthed up duo of peaktime disco heat. Alongside the electrified roller-boogie of the A-side we get a B-side flip on the Big Willie classic Daphni utilised for "Ye Ye" - killer stuff.
Crazy P - Hotbath Re-Edits Vol.2 Crazy P - Hotbath Re-Edits Vol.2

12" - £8.49

Sil says: A true edit classic gets a much needed repress. Whether you're after disco, Balearic or bar tackle, this is the multi-purpose platter for you.
Björk - Blissing Me Björk - Blissing Me

Ltd 12" - £11.99

Millie says: Stripped back and intimate, this new 12" from Bjork marries synth-soul and gospel into a spine-tingling track perfect for fans of Sampha.
Alessandro Adriani - Enter The Fire Alessandro Adriani - Enter The Fire

Ltd 12" - £10.99

Patrick says: Alessandro Adriani on Stroboscopic Aretfacts seems like a match made in heaven, and the Mannequin boss does his thing majestically here, treating the techno fan to four tracks of Industrial/EBM tinged intensity wrought out of overheating machinery.
Other Lands - Pattern Transform Other Lands - Pattern Transform

Ltd 12" - £12.49

Matt says: Lindsey and firm continue to mine the outer realms in search for tantalizing new sound species for our biotic receptors. Other Lands here with primo neo-exotica. You need!
Bud Burroughs - The Mail Art EP Bud Burroughs - The Mail Art EP

12" - £9.99

Matt says: Glasgow's answer to Trax, Seventh Sign remain a crucial force in 2018 with some tasty new dance music courtesy of Bud.
Nathan Fake - Sunder Nathan Fake - Sunder

12" - £8.99

Barry says: In the latest edition of 'How The F**k', we see Nathan Fake flaunting his innate talents to once again impeccably step foot into the dusty hardware workouts and crackling basement soundsystem techno of 'Hard Islands' before giving us a beautiful glimpse of his earlier, more innocent excursions. Superb.
Lindstrøm - Didn't Know Better Lindstrøm - Didn't Know Better

12" - £9.99

Patrick says: Lindstrom recalls the boogie-tinged executive pop splendour of his Christabelle collaborations with a heavenly bit of peaktime disco here, featuring Ronika's vocal talents. The A-side is excellent, but it's Hans-Peter's mix on the flip that steals the show.
CFCF - Self Service CFCF - Self Service

12" - £9.99

Matt says: Futureproof as fire but as accessible as beer there's not many people I can think of that won't find some enjoyment across these three tracks. Lovely stuff.
Color Plus - Color Plus EP Color Plus - Color Plus EP

12" - £12.99

Matt says: Powerful and arresting stuff here ouuta Brooklyn. Fearlessly pushing the boudries of what's expected production wise and landing somewhere in the outer realms of 'GOOD'.
M.S.L. - Bellevue Resort M.S.L. - Bellevue Resort

12" - £9.99

Matt says: 2018's vintage electro resurgence reaches its natural zenith with a plethora of labels and artists extorting the style. It's all good though, as I always thought it never got enough attention first time round! MSL joins 2018's forerunners for four tracks of cyborg friendly robo-funk. TIP!
Lovely Eggs - Wiggy Giggy Lovely Eggs - Wiggy Giggy

7" - £5.99

Taken from their forthcoming album 'This Is Eggland' and working with legendary Flaming Lips producer Dave Fridmann “Wiggy Giggy” takes us on a cosmic odyssey where “normal” life and always “striving for more” meet something more magical! Where the grass is not always greener whatever side you look from.
Danny Krivit & DJ Heaven - Edits Danny Krivit & DJ Heaven - Edits

Ltd 12" - £14.49

Patrick says: Proper rushy NYC disco heat here from Danny K and DJ Heaven here. Mr K brings soulful vocals, tender keyboard licks and an irresistible rhythm section on his secret weapon, while Joey possibly snatches the gold medal on the B-side with the super groovey instrumental cut "Please Come Home".
K Alexi Shelby - All For Lee Sah K Alexi Shelby - All For Lee Sah

12" - £9.99

Matt says: Vintage K Alexi here from a highly acknowledge golden year for the techno vineyards. One to get in the cellar and pull out for a special occassion.

Due: 6th Apr
2xDeluxe LP - £28.99
Due: 6th Apr

With newfound energy and time to develop, Avery’s sonic vocabulary has expanded. Here, the booming sound of the big room is brilliantly countered by the music of the small hours. Where celestial ambient lullabies ‘First Light’ and ‘Days From Now’ sit perfectly next to the mesmeric techno assault of ‘Diminuendo’ and ‘Sensation’; where both ‘Projector’ and ‘Clear’ evoke early rave records, only ones engulfed by waves of beautiful cyclonic distortion.

Due: 2nd Mar

Superorganism is a spectacularly confident debut record that beams with a sense of wonky fun, a kaleidoscopic riot of sound and visuals. Influenced by the world-building depth of artists like Devo, Beck and The Avalanches, Superoganism soundtracks the band’s rapid trajectory from shared house side project to global audiovisual powerhouse.

Coloured LP - £19.99
Due: 23rd Mar

Preoccupations’ songs have always worked through themes of creation, destruction, and futility, and they’ve always done it with singular post-punk grit. The textures are evocative and razor-sharp. The wire is always a live one. But while that darker side may have been well-explored, that’s not quite the same as it being fully, intensely lived. This time it was, and the result is ’New Material’, a collection that broadens and deepens Preoccupations to a true mastery of their sound.

Millie says: In the words of Kendrick Lamar 'Pour up, drank, head shot, drank, sit down, drank, stand up, drank'. Drank is the sequel to Thundercat’s previous release last year ‘Drunk’, remixed and all freshened up to provide the jazziest of vibes you could ever need.
Suuns - Felt Suuns - Felt

CD - £9.99
Due: 2nd Mar
Coloured LP - £19.99
Due: 2nd Mar

Suuns are pleased to announced their new album, Felt, coming out March 2nd on Secretly Canadian. Singer/guitarist Ben Shemie says, “This record is definitely looser than our last one [2016’s Hold/Still]. It’s not as clinical. There’s more swagger.” You can hear this freedom flowing through the 11 tracks on Felt. It’s both a continuation and rebirth....
Cavern Of Anti-Matter - Hormone Lemonade Cavern Of Anti-Matter - Hormone Lemonade

CD - £9.99
Due: 23rd Mar
Ltd LP - £19.99
Due: 23rd Mar
Coloured LP - £21.99
Due: 23rd Mar

Cavern Of Anti-Matter return for their third studio album on their own Duophonic label. Hormone Lemonade sees the band heavily utilising the sounds of modular synths and home built drum machines, yet still keeping the loose, improvised sound familiar to fans of their first two albums, with minimal guitar melodies and live drum kit helping to build hypnotic layers of texture.
Gwenno - Le Kov Gwenno - Le Kov

CD - £9.99
Due: 2nd Mar
Coloured LP - £18.99
Due: 2nd Mar

Written entirely in Cornish, Le Kov is exploration of the individual and collective subconscious, the myths and drolls of Cornwall, and the survival of Britain’s lesser known Brythonic language. As one of the language’s few fluent speakers, Gwenno felt a duty to make her second album entirely in Cornish: to create a document of a living language, explore her identity and the endless creative possibilities of a tongue that has a very small surviving artistic output, despite having been around
King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard - Gumboot Soup King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard - Gumboot Soup

CD - £9.99
Due: 23rd Mar

The album explores a remarkable range of sonic terrain - crunching rock 'n' roll, electro and hard funk, proto punk, hip hop, gospel blues, and even country - all remapped and born anew to fit White's matchless vision and sense of restless experimentation. Boarding House Reach is a testament to the breadth of Jack White's creative power and his bold artistic ambition.

For this one music critics will need to retire the comparisons to heritage rockers and Laurel Canyon troubadours as they’re hardly useful anymore. Wilson's new sound takes a synthetic/acoustic, best-of-both-worlds analog/digital hybrid approach to achieve the complexity, sonic density and glossy hi-fi coating of Rare Birds. Heard for the first time on a Jonathan Wilson album are the sounds of synthesizers and drum machines.

Due: 13th Apr

A prolific songwriter for nearly twenty years, Laura Veirs proves the depth of her musical skill on her tenth solo album, The Lookout, released via Bella Union. Here is a batch of inimitable, churning, exquisite folk-pop songs; a concept album about the fragility of precious things. The Lookout is a soundtrack for turbulent times, full of allusions to protectors: the camper stoking a watch fire, a mother tending her children, a sailor in a crows nest and a lightning rod channelling energy.

One can’t be certain if it’s the age we live in or the age of his youngest that’s most heavily influenced ‘Stop Lying’ - whichever it is, it’s managed to make something pretty close to a perfectly reflective post millennial pop record. It’s Raf’s most confident and strident set of songs to date.

“Here are 15 new EELS tracks that may or may not inspire, rock, or not rock you. The world is going nuts. But if you look for it, there is still great beauty to be found. Sometimes you don’t even have to look for it. Other times you have to try to make it yourself. And then there are times you have to tear something apart to find something beautiful inside.” EELS singer-songwriter E (Mark Oliver Everett).

Lucy Dacus is done thinking small. Two years after her 2016 debut, No Burden, won her unanimous acclaim as one of rock's most promising new voices, Dacus returns on March 2 with Historian, a remarkably assured 10-track statement of intent. "This is the album I needed to make," says Dacus, who views Historian as her definitive statement as a songwriter and musician. "Everything after this is a bonus."

Having released their much acclaimed debut ‘A Dream Outside’ in June 2015, the band spent a soul-searching two years writing and recording its follow up, a process which saw them reject multiple recordings and eventually return to the drawing board, re-group and head back to the studio with a clarity and conviction to deliver an album which sees them taking a bold and ambitious artistic stride.

David Bowie - Low - 2017 Remastered Edition David Bowie - Low - 2017 Remastered Edition

LP - £19.99

The powerful reach of Bowie's masterpiece, the first part of the much feted 'Berlin Trilogy' created with the aid of Brian Eno, is still being felt strongly almost 30 years on. The four studio albums ‘Low’, ‘‘Heroes’’, ‘Lodger’ and ‘Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)’ have not been available as standalone vinyl LPs for over 25 years.

David Bowie - Lodger - 2017 Remastered Edition David Bowie - Lodger - 2017 Remastered Edition

LP - £19.99
CD - £11.99

Lodger has an edgier, more minimalistic bent than its two predecessors, which makes it more accessible for rock fans, as well as giving it a more immediate, emotional impact. It might not stretch the boundaries of rock like Low and Heroes, but it arguably utilizes those ideas in a more effective fashion." - Allmusic. The four studio albums ‘Low’, ‘‘Heroes’’, ‘Lodger’ and ‘Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)’ have not been available as standalone vinyl LPs for over 25 years.

"David Bowie returned to relatively conventional rock & roll with Scary Monsters, an album that effectively acts as an encapsulation of all his '70s experiments." - Allmusic. The four studio albums ‘Low’, ‘‘Heroes’’, ‘Lodger’ and ‘Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)’ have not been available as standalone vinyl LPs for over 25 years.

Felt - Crumbling The Antiseptic Beauty - Remastered Felt - Crumbling The Antiseptic Beauty - Remastered

LP - £22.99
Deluxe CD - £27.99

Lawrence’s ambition was to release the best debut English album ever! Adrian Borland offered his services, then commitments with his band The Sound prevented this from happening. So Felt began a relationship with Swell Maps producer John A. Rivers. Recorded and mixed in six days the band got a taste of how bitter reality fares compared to the “mellow fruitfulness” of blind ambition.
Felt - Ignite The Seven Cannons Felt - Ignite The Seven Cannons

LP - £22.99
Deluxe CD - £27.99

Produced by Robin Guthrie of Cocteau Twins and featuring the skyscraping vocal of Elizabeth Fraser on the mighty Primitive Painters. Felt found themselves at the top of the independent charts. Unhappy with the overall sound though – it was as if some of Lawrence’s best songs were lost in an “ethereal swirl.” John A. Rivers has been given access to the original master tapes and six songs have been remixed. Also – side 2 has been focused, edited and “made symmetrical.”
Felt - The Splendor Of Fear - Remastered Felt - The Splendor Of Fear - Remastered

LP - £22.99
Deluxe CD - £27.99

Dark black slabs of creosote guitar – vast swathes of epic interplay – casting futuristic Shadows – an idiosyncratic and unobtrusively brilliant band, the music Felt made on this album is unlike anything attempted before. This really is a template for an age yet to come.
Felt - The Seventeenth Century Felt - The Seventeenth Century

LP - £22.99
Deluxe CD - £27.99

Previously named Let the Snakes Crinkle Their Heads to Death, this album is now retitled The Seventeenth Century – the original name for the album was changed late in the day. This reversal of misfortune was classed as an awful mistake and Lawrence’s biggest regret. Flash forward to now and this situation can finally be rectified. “You can’t change the title of an album” - they told him – so he said; “if Kraftwerk can and Bowie can then I can too!!”
Felt - The Strange Idols Pattern & The Other Stories - Remastered Felt - The Strange Idols Pattern & The Other Stories - Remastered

LP - £22.99
Deluxe CD - £27.99

Before the Stone Roses and after Be-Bop Deluxe and Plastic Ono Band, John Leckie worked with Felt. Booked into a metal/reggae studio in Birmingham’s industrial wasteland he sculpted a Michelangelo slice of new rock – exquisite and beautiful guitar odysseys – quite unlike anything the city had experienced before. Merging pop with a classical nuance Felt stood alone as the forerunners of a brand new style.

CD - £17.99
Ltd LP - £21.99

Patrick says: Aside from being a fine example of Brazil's historic relationship with the accordion (officially the 6th most sexy instrument), this slightly bonkers album is full of exactly the kind of percussive, folky oddities you'd hear Villalobos blow your mind with back in his pomp.

On this double LP reissue, Dreamweapon is augmented by studio sessions and rehearsal tapes from 1987 that would lead up to the recording of Spacemen 3's classic ‘Playing With Fire’ album. ‘Spacemen Jam,’ featuring Sonic Boom and Jason Pierce on dual guitar, is a side-long mediation on delicate textures and psychedelic effects.
