Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros Up From Below (10th Anniversary Edition) Rough Trade Records LP Pre-Order
Starcrawler Devour You Limited edition 'blood-red / marbled' vinyl is packaged in a 'scratch & sniff sleeve'. Starcrawler’s remarkable sophomore album Devour You is a record that dynamically captures the essence and aggression of their gloriously unhinged live shows. Produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, L7) at Sunset Studios, Devour You takes the feral intensity of their 2018 self-titled debut and twists it into something grander and more gracefully composed. With its more elaborate and nuanced yet harder-hitting sonic palette, the result is a selection of songs radiating both raw sensitivity and untamable power, and a record that the band’s Arrow de Wilde says, “encapsulates all the blood, sweat, bruised knees, and broken fingers of a Starcrawler show.” Rough Trade Records CD | LP Pre-Order

Tracklisiting is being revealed on release day, but there are 9 tracks, running time is about 43 minutes. LP is on 180g vinyl and includes a download code. black midi -- Georgie Greep (vocals/guitar), Matt Kwasniewski-Kelvin (vocals/guitar), Cameron Picton (vocals/bass), and Morgan Simpson (drums) -- have a dynamic energy, playing as a musical unit that’s constantly in a state of flux and development. Schlagenheim was recorded with Speedy Wunderground producer Dan Carey, who the band praises for his quick, unfussy approach. black midi laid down eight of the record’s nine tracks in just five days. The process was one of refining and rebuilding tracks around the initial structures. Five hour jams would sometimes yield a riff that then became a few bars of a song. As anyone who’s been lucky enough to catch black midi live over recent months will testify, black midi’s songs are slippery creatures. Rough Trade Records CD | LP
Girl Band the Talkies We'll have one of 7 test-presses with hand-stamped artwork by vocalist Dara Kiely, to enter, all you have to do is order a copy of the LP, we'll pick the winner on release day and get it sent over to you as soon as we have it in stock. The second full length album from the Irish post-punk / indie-rock group Girl Band, following on from their acclaimed 2015 debut Holding Hands With Jamie. The Talkies is living, breathing, in a continual state of metamorphosis. It encompasses everything there is to love about Girl Band while simultaneously causing an exciting level of discomfort. The moaning and sawing guitars, atonal blankets of sound, abstractive lyrical repetition, chugging snare and ascending/descending snakes and ladders noise-rock guitar deliver something that is so distinctively Girl Band.

black midi talking heads / crow's perch 12" single from the acclaimed and enigmatic London-based indie-rockers black midi. “Talking Heads” is a calculated intensity, driven by frenzied percussion, bright, vivacious guitar, and spastic vocals. “We've always tried to make it heavy but danceable, melodic but good rhythms,” says vocalist and guitarist, Geordie Greep. “It is accessible music, there are experimental aspects that we've taken from when we went crazy at the beginning, we've just reigned it in to make something that is pop music.” Rough Trade Records 12"
