Royal Headache High Second album from Sydney's Royal Headache. Fans of The Vaccines, Parquets Courts and Jawbreaker check this out! If their first album was akin to a courtship, think of High as the romance. Not just on the level of two people falling in love, but a romance with the qualities of pop music that make Royal Headache who they are and inform what they do: eternal optimism, wistful beauty and interlocking presentation that evolves from four guys singing on a street corner to speed-addled rock, and all the brightness and darkness in between, teetering between stability and chaos and well-aware of how unsteady their footing might be.

BODEGA Witness Scroll LP is either on 'clear' vinyl (/800) or 'glow in the dark' vinyl (/200) and these have been randomised in the sleeve. WITNESS SCROLL, a live album recorded May 2018 at the Poetry Club (Glasgow) and the Lexington (London). Raw and cathartic, the record showcases the spontaneous electricity of their live sets - including extended renditions of live staples ’Truth is Not Punishment’ and ‘Can’t Knock the Hustle.’ Also on the disc is the new track ‘No Vanguard Revival’ and a re-worked version of ‘Stain Glaze’, originally a song by Ben and Nikki’s old band BODEGA BAY.

BODEGA Endless Scroll The debut album from BODEGA, quality slacker / garagey indie-rock with infectious lyrics. With wild minimalism and sharp wit, BODEGA revitalizes the rock and roll vocabulary under the influence of post punk, contemporary pop, hip-hop, kraut rock, and folk-derived narrative songwriting. Endless Scroll was recorded and produced by Austin Brown (Parquet Courts) on the same Tascam 388 tape machine used for their LP Light Up Gold. It was mixed and mastered by Jonathan Schenke at Dr. Wu’s. Whats Your Rupture? CD | LP
