Spanish Love Songs Saturday 15th February at Banquet Records, 12:00pm If you've already bought the album from us online then you can upgrade and get a free ticket to the in-store before it goes on general sale, you'll have to be logged into the account you purchased the album from. - Following the release of their new album, Spanish Love Songs visit the shop for a lunch time set. Their second full length album, titled Brave Faces Everyone, follows on from their triumphant 2017 debut Schmaltz, seeing them offer up another dose of their anthemic indie-punk mixed with some heartstring-tugging emo influences. Fans of The Menzingers, Tigers Jaw and The Hotelier should be checking this band out. "This album is us honing in on what we think makes our band resonate with people — namely, the feeling that you're not alone. These are songs about looking outward and finding that, for all our differences, most of us are just trying to get by as the world is going to hell around us. "We don’t have any grand ambitions beyond that — we just want people to feel acknowledged. There’s comfort in knowing we’re on the same sinking ship. We want the album to be a knowing nod and a way to make the world a slightly more bearable, even if it’s just for 40 minutes." Tickets are for collection from our shop on the day of the in-store, please bring your order number with you. Albums will be posted unless you select 'Collect In Shop' when checking out. In-store Grade A. Priority will be given to anyone who orders a copy of Brave Faces Everyone from us. CD | LP Past Event

Circa Waves Thursday 12th March at Pryzm, 7:00pm The night before their new record is released, Circa Waves play in Kingston. The New Slang regulars return again in celebration of their fourth full length album titled Sad Happy, following on from 2019's What's It Like Over There. Expect another excellent offering of their dynamic and anthemic indie-rock driven tunes. An album of our times, ‘Sad Happy’ is formed of two diametrically distinctive sides – the first half of the record contains the Happy tracks, the latter the Sad tracks. Lead single ‘Jacqueline’ is unveiled today as the first taste of ‘Sad Happy’. Listen here. An infectious, Soweto flavoured groove, ‘Jacqueline’ is another bold slice of bright, life-affirming pop from the pen of Kieran Shudall, who is establishing himself as one of Britain’s most prolific young songwriters. With it’s infectious chorus and refrain of ‘Good times are coming around the bend’, Jacqueline is at once instantly recognisable and also another bold sonic leap forward for Circa Waves. It’s a song that’ll sit effortlessly amongst a setlist already brimming with anthems. Times TBC but we expect doors at 7:00pm with Circa Waves on stage at 8:00pm CD/ticket is £16 post-paid, and other formats and combos are available. Albums and tickets will be posted separately, the album is released 13th March.
