Wolf Alice My Love Is Cool The debut album from North London's Wolf Alice! Great fuzzy indie-rock that can range from heavy grunge to swooping heartfelt dream-pop. Fans of Peace, Veronica Falls, Big Deal and Menace Beach should get into this! "If good things come to those who wait, then I’m glad we waited for My Love Is Cool I typically like music which falls between the worlds of punk and indie, but this year my album of the year is one which touches those bases and takes on others too. Mixing anger with fragility both musically and lyrically, it’s not only a collection of great songs but it’s an album that works from 1-12 (a sometimes lost art). It has a sound reminiscent of what I was listening to in my student days but then it’s also completely 2015, and the appeal reaches all from 16-60. This album is on in the shop, on my headphones or in my car, and always on the New Slang playlist. It works in so many contexts; the band doing a stripped down show in our record shop or a full Hippodrome gig. They're playing Hyde Park but also act as independent venue ambassadors. These are songs you turn to when you’re feeling low, but also the soundtrack to your greatest of days. The band who had a no.2 album and now play the bigger venues on the touring circuit, still feels like your favourite new discovery. I think the record is brilliant, and I can’t tire of hearing it." jt Wolf Alice’s debut album My Love Is Cool comes with lofty expectations. Fittingly, then, it’s a record that reaches for the stratosphere. Equal parts gigantic guitars and wistful, wilting beauty, My Love Is Cool is a timeless collection of songs that outways any preconceived notions of what Wolf Alice are, or can be. The ambitions of Ellie Rowsell (guitar/vocals), Theo Ellis (bass), Joff Oddie (guitars) and Joel Amey (drums/vocals) are fully realised in stunning widescreen". Dirty Hit CD | LP

The Japanese House Good At Falling Indies exclusive LP is on 180g violet coloured vinyl. White vinyl is also 180g. We've got a Banquet exclusive slip-on sleeve for CDs & LPs (white vinyl). The hugely anticipated debut full length album from the incredible The Japanese House, a swirling and intoxicating mix of ambient electro-pop / indie. Any fan of Bon Iver, Imogen Heap, Jaws or (the slower stuff from) The 1975 should give this a listen. “I’m more of a behind-the-scenes songwriter and producer, but I’ve learnt how to become [a performer]... I’m glad I waited this long because I don’t think I’d have been able to make the same album two years ago. I think it’s important to not rush things and find exactly what kind of music you want to make.” Dirty Hit CD | LP
Wolf Alice Visions Of A Life The highly anticipated second album from the extraordinary Wolf Alice, following on from the brilliant 2015 debut My Love Is Cool. They can seamlessly go from aggressive riot-grrl inspired punk to shoegazey-dream-pop to straight up indie-rock jams and its excellent. To call it cinematic is something of an understatement – this is super wide-screen, the sharpest technicolour, so HD you can almost see their guitar strings sparkling with each note and the air around the drums crunching with each beat. Musically, it’s unlike anything Wolf Alice have done before. It’s the very definition of ambitious, a shimmering, golden piece of atmospheric indie that will make you feel like you’re drifting 40,000 feet above the clouds, looking down at Earth through a marshmallow patchwork. - NME on 'Don't Delete The Kisses' Dirty Hit CD | LP
