The S.L.P The S.L.P Indies / high-street LP is on clear vinyl with alternative art. Both LP editions include a CD insert + poster. The debut full length solo album from Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno, under the moniker The S.L.P. "What’s exciting for me is that I’ve been completely reborn... it’s reminded me of why I wanted to be an artist. Why does anybody want to make anything? It’s that first moment when you can be anything you want. You’re not weighed down by expectation or what it should or needs to be. All of the other forces in your world slip away. When you’re sat there as a five-year-old kid, you get a bit of paper and you just draw, or you just pick up a guitar and you just draw. You don’t care what any of it’s about, you don’t care if it means anything, you just do it." Columbia CD | LP
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Various Artists OST to the new Quentin Tarantino blockbuster "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood". The film, set in Hollywood in 1969, stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, Kurt Russell, Margot Robbie and Emile Hursch. The soundtrack captures that period perfectly, with classic tracks, obscure gems, spoken word and vintage radio ad snippets (very much in the style of Pulp Fiction). Columbia CD | LP

Herbie Hancock Chameleon / Watermelon Man Major Keys is a brand-new audiophile label focusing on fully licensed reissues of jazz classics, pressed on 12” for a fuller, louder version compared to the original album cut. What better way to kick of the series than housing Herbie Hancock’s imitable ‘Chameleon’ and ‘Watermelon Man’, loud and proud on either side of a 12”. They don’t get much more iconic than ‘Chameleon’. Nestled on the incredible1973 ‘Head Hunters’ album it’s a 16-minute exploration of legendary jazz funk – having all the sensibilities and solos of a jazz record, yet grounding its rhythms in funk, soul and R&B. Even, as its title suggests, morphing from a low slung slow jam into a full-on, fast paced spiritual gem. Lock in for one of the most iconic basslines aroundcourtesy of Paul Jackson, alongside some of the sweetest synth and Rhodesplaying you’re likely to hear from Herbie, all tied together with Harvey Mason’s mythical drumming. Sampled the world over by the biggest and the best this is atruly timeless and hugely influential piece of music. On the B side, the equally intriguing ‘Watermelon Man’. This version, again taken from the Head Hunters LP, differs from the Blue Note bop ’62 original, with Hancock developing it into a jazz fusion expedition. Bill Summers top and tails the track with a style of beer bottle blowing imitating a type of whistle playing found in Central African Pygmy music,giving a unique flavour to Hancock’s jazz funk stylings that focus on the rhythmic interplay between each instrument. FromDilla to Digable Planets, Madonna to Massive Attack it’s a classic that’s sampled time and time again for good reason. Columbia 12"
