Brought To Light Various Artists The release is a collection of demos, curated by the label, who have deemed them some of the finest submissions they’ve received over the last few years. FatCat have a long tradition of supporting new artists and treating demos with an open mind. This new collection of songs, the first in a trilogy of such releases, is demonstrable to the eclectic taste the label have always possessed. One of the founding partners of the label, Alex Knight says. “FatCat has a rich history of signing Artists from Demo recordings, this includes renowned artists such as Frightened Rabbit, The Twilight Sad,Animal Collective and Max Richter as well as current signings C Duncan, Samana, Resina and Shida Shahabi. We receive a wonderful array of demo’s and the compilation is a great way to highlight just how good this material is!” FatCat have always been a label that comfortably straddle the line between guitar music and electronica. For this release, the focus is on the sort of DIY guitar sound of which Paws and TRAAMS fans might enjoy. Away from the FatCat roster, fans of Yuck, Cloud Nothings, Drenge and Girl Band will also find plenty in which to immerse themselves. The next two compilations will focus on other genres that make up the FatCat musical tradition. The artists on this release are all at different stages of their careers. Some have gone to work with labels, some have remained independent. Some are new, some have been around for years. The album has been lovingly put together by FatCat with the intention of bringing these songs into the spotlight. FatCat Records LP

We Were Promised Jetpacks These Four Walls (10th Anniversary) Vinyl reissue of the adored debut full length album from Scotland's We Were Promised Jetpacks. "We started our band at high school. A few years later when we went to record our debut album we didn't have any grand expectations. I certainly didn't expect it would lead to us still writing and playing music together. We are incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to play so many shows to so many people over the years. And I'll always feel proud of writing this album, with my friends, that resonates with so many of you. We decided to do some shows and to re-release the record to help celebrate this milestone."
