King Krule Man Alive! One of our favourite albums of 2020! "A project that is stylishly and emotionally a plethora of soundscapes... never staying stagnant, King Krule has shown his growth as an artist with this LP" - Julian - Indies exclusive LP is on 'white' vinyl and includes a bonus flexi disc with the 'Hey World!' version of 'Perfect Miserable'. We've got some double-sided A2 posters which are FREE when you pick up the black LP - you just pay a little extra P&P The long-awaited third full length album from the excellent sludge-popper King Krule., following on from his 2017 record The OOZ with another dose of his bleak, jazz indie-psychedelia tunes. “I feel better in life. I don’t drink or smoke when I’m in the North West, so I’m pretty clean. It's made me kind of bored of what a lot of the album’s talking about! It’s hard to know where it’s going now I’ve done it, and what I’ll do next, because of my new-found role and responsibility in the world. It'll be good to play live, I'm looking forward to that.

The White Stripes Icky Thump The 6th album from Jack and Meg! This is the first time the White Stripes have ever recorded and mixed an album at a conventional modern studio. It was still, however, recorded to reel-to-reel, and mixed to tape in complete analogue fashion. It was recorded in three weeks - the longest they've ever spent working on a record. Here's some more interesting facts about the album, "Icky Thump" has no piano performances or piano-based songs (unlike it's predecessor which was mostly written and performed on piano). It has the most guitar solos Jack White has ever recorded to tape. It is the first time the band has collaborated with horns and bagpipes. "Icky Thump" contains the first spoken dialogue song to appear on one of their albums; "Rag And Bone". It is the second longest album of the Stripes pantheon thus far. Second to "Elephant" with more than 48 minutes in running time. The album's title is a morphing of the phrase 'Ecky Thump' which is an exclamation of surprise or wonderment in Northern England. The synthesizer used in the title track was also used on the song "Telstar" recorded by Joe Meek. XL Records CD | LP
