W. H. Lung Incidental Music "Dinked edition" is on 180g 'bone' coloured vinyl, includes an exclusive 260gsm art print + download code. Hand signed and numbered by the band, limited to 400 copies. For avoidance of doubt, the centre is a standard spindle size, and not dinked. Regular LP is on 180g black vinyl, includes a download code. The highly anticipated debut full length from W.H. Lung, primarily a studio-based project that fuses up and weaves together stunning synth pop with 70's grooves. W. H. Lung have allowed this album to naturally gestate over the course of two years . The result is a remarkably considered debut - the production is crisp and pristine but not over-polished, the synths and electronics radiate and hum with a golden aura and the vocals weave between tender delivery and forceful eruptions. There is a palpable energy to the songs, as experienced in 10 glorious minutes of opening statement 'impatico People'. “I think it’s important to erase the distinction between ‘high’ and ‘low’ culture,” states Joseph E. This colliding of worlds not only exists in the potent mix between whip-smart arrangements, lyrics and seamlessly danceable music but also in the fact that they are named after a cash and carry in Manchester. As Tom P. explains, “I thought it was funny juxtaposing those kind of austere associations with W. H. Auden and other initialed poets, writers, artists, etc. with the fact that it’s really just a Chinese supermarket.” Melodic / Dinked CD | LP Exclusive
Working Men's Club Bad Blood / Suburban Heights “THERE'S REAL ALCHEMY TO HOW THIS YORKSHIRE TRIO TAKE WELL-WORN INGREDIENTS – THE FALL, GANG OF FOUR, NY PUNK-FUNK – AND TURN INTO INTO SOMETHING MORE THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS. AN EFFERVESCENT DEBUT SUNGLE'. - THE GUARDIAN With the start-stop sound of Talking Heads, Gang of Four and Television, ‘Bad Blood,’ fuses 70s post-punk with the stomp of Parquet Courts’ positivity and resonates with the start of the weekend...Syd’s half-spoken words jab through Strokes guitar lines with Mark E Smith drawl...it’s the feeling of a Saturday spent scuffing about in thrift stores and hanging out with friends.
