Suede The Insatiable Ones A triple-disc package of the 2018 documentary of the legendary Suede. Brett Anderson has made a point of saying that this documentary – directed by Mike Christie – isn’t “a powder-puff promotional tool” rather it “grasps at the very essence of what the band is, charting the scruffy inglorious years of struggle, the vertiginous heights of success and the dank depths of self-destruction and hopefully emerges at the end of it all with some truths revealed and some myths destroyed”.

Peter Broderick Piano Works Vol. 1 Comes with a download code. The first publication of piano pieces by Erased Tapes composer and musician Peter Broderick features 20 works and an exclusive album of recordings plus unique notes from the composer. In this, his first volume of sheet music, Peter Broderick collects 20 works for solo piano alongside exclusive new recordings. Taken from his piano-led records such as Docile, Float, How They Are, Partners and Grunewald, some are original solo works while others have been stripped back and arranged for solo piano for the first time. The collection also includes the composer’s performance and repertoire notes. “Ever since I started releasing records of piano music back in 2007, it seems that every few months I get an email from a stranger, asking me if I have sheet music for my piano songs. Sometimes people even write to me assuming that the sheet music already exists, asking in regards to a particular song, “Where can I find the sheet music?” My response to all these requests has been always been the same . . . “Unfortunately the music is only written in my head and in my fingers, but I do hope that maybe one day I’ll be able to write some of it out and publish a book of sheet music.” And finally, ten years later, that day is here! I am very proud to announce that Piano Works Vol. 1, my first book of piano sheet music, will be available in mid-June. Thanks to my dear friends at Erased Tapes and Music Sales for helping this come to fruition.” – Peter Broderick Erased Tapes CD
Temples Volcano [RSD] This is an exclusive release for Record Store Day 2017. If we have stock left it will be available online from Saturday 29th April, strictly one per customer. Record Store Day version of the second studio album by English psychedelic rock band, Temples. Following on from their debut album, Sun Structures, the band has been pushing themselves sonically that is evident in the extremely catchy lead single, Certainty. It doesn’t take too long with Volcano to realise that, while all the things that made the band special the first time around remain intact, a noticeable evolution has taken place. It’s there from the outset: the beefed-up beats of Certainty reveal an expanded sonic firmament, one in which bright synth hooks and insistent choruses circle around each other over chord sequences that strike just the right balance between nice and queasy. “If there’s a sense of scale,” says lead singer James Bagshaw, “It was really just a result of implementing a load of things that we didn’t know about the first time around.” Co-founding member and bassist Thomas Walmsley describes a record in which “we discovered a lot as we went along, and the excitement at having done so radiates Heavenly Out of Stock
