Gruff Rhys (Don't) Welcome The Plague As A Blessing / The Babelsberg Basement Files [RSD20] Rough Trade Records LP Pre-Order
caroline Dark Blue London based caroline began as a three-piece (Jasper Llewellyn, Mike O'Malley, Casper Hughes) in early 2017, initially evolving out of weekly improvisation sessions. Bringing together shared influences in, and experiences of playing, midwestern ‘emo’ guitar music, Appalachian folk, minimalist classical and various forms of dance music. caroline’s debut 12" single features lead track ‘Dark blue’ (A side) and ‘BRJ’ (B side). A hand drawn 12” insert is included with all orders. The group spent a year and a half playing privately, without a project name. Reiterating, deconstructing and re-building the same small handful of songs over and over again, the group slowly expanded their on-stage members before playing their debut show as caroline in 2018.

JARV IS Beyond The Pale The debut full length album from the Jarvis Cocker formed super-group JARV IS. JARV IS… was conceived as a way of writing songs in collaboration with an audience. As the material they were playing was in a state of flux the band decided to record their live shows so that they could monitor how the songs were developing. After an appearance at the Desert Daze festival in California, Geoff Barrow (Portishead, Beak>) suggested that these recordings could be used as the basis for an album. Overdubs & vocals were added at Narcissus Studios in Neasden, London. Post-production work took place at Jason Buckle’s Place du Big Boss studio in Raynes Park, London. The album was mixed by Craig Silvey at Toast Studios in West London. Rough Trade Records CD | LP Pre-Order

Belle & Sebastian Dear Catastrophe Waitress Belle & Sebastian classic Fifth album from fey Scots indie-pop heroes is their first for Rough Trade and follows 2002's soundtrack effort "Storytelling". Featuring their usual blend of twee chamber-pop anddry wit, the album was, bizarrely, produced by Trevor Horn, the man behind the desk for such pop luminaries as Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Grace Jones, the Pet Shop Boys, TATU and LeAnn Rimes. http://www.belleandsebastian.com/ Rough Trade Records CD
Elastica Elastica Reissue of the debut album from Elastica, originally released in 1995. What a sound. "As albums that fall off a genre's radar go, Elastica's eponymous debut ranks high. A neglected gem and the blueprint for what Britpop should sound like" - BBC Music "what makes Elastica such an intoxicating record is not only the way the 16 songs speed by in 40 minutes, but that they're nearly all classics, hardly any new wave band made records this consistently rocking and melodic."
