Liam Cromby What Can I Trust, If I Can't Trust True Love The debut solo album from Liam Cromby, formally of Kingston visitors We Are The Ocean.“Drawing from my own experiences, this song is a testament to those early, fragile moments of a relationship—where every misstep feels like a fall and every kind gesture feels like flying,” he explains. “Choosing to name the album after this song was instinctive, given that it was among the final tracks to be crafted. Even though it came later in the creative journey, it perfectly embodies the central theme of the album.” Since revealing the first taste of new music in March, with the release of ‘Here I Am’ - accompanied only by a contemplative, artful film featuring an elaborate dance between two performers - followed by ‘Breakdown’, and last month, ‘At This Table’, this new phase of his career is already off to an impressive start. With early airplay from BBC Introducing and Absolute Radio Country among others, an appearance at The Great Escape festival and sold-out headline shows across the country, Cromby was invited to play at the prestigious Black Deer Festival of Americana, and along with a full-band set, joined Brandy Clark, Drake White, Elles Bailey and Bella White for a Songwriter Session.

Jamie Lawson The Years In Between Award-winning singer-songwriter Jamie Lawson releases his fifth studio album The Years In Between, released via Gingerbread Man Records. His most collaborative album to date, Jamie worked with celebrated co-writers and friends, writing and recording the tracks whilst supporting Ed Sheeran on a mammoth 46-date UK and EU stadium tour. Themes of artistic struggle and doubt are evident on Chasing, written in Nashville with Natalie Hemby and KS Rhodes. Together, they wrote the Nashville way: producing a constant stream of ideas, melody after melody, until inspiration strikes. Proclamations of love and kindness during politically-charged times permeate These Troubled Times and Where Have All The Good Vibrations Gone, the latter of which was written with Turin Brakes. Old friends of Jamie’s, they’ve crossed paths since the beginning of their respective journeys and this full circle moment sees the band support him with backing vocals and a writing credit. The album closes with one of the most personal songs Jamie has written. On album title track The Years In Between he reminisces on the time between his father’s death (he sadly passed away when Jamie was just 19) and the present day, touching on what could have been. The resulting heartfelt and personal track is the perfect coda to a collection of songs Jamie feels best represents where he is as an artist today. Alongside Ollie Green (co-writer of the album’s first single, The Answer), Jamie’s album writing partners include Jamie Scott (Jess Glynne, Rudimental, Niall Horan), Natalie Hemby (Kacey Musgraves), Amy Wadge (Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello) and Matty Benbrook (Paolo Nutini, Lewis Capaldi). The album was produced by Grammy Award-winner Ruadhri Cushnan (Mumford and Sons, Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes) at Dublin’s Camden Recording Studios. Atlantic / Gingerbread Man CD | LP
HONESTY WHERE R U The music of Honesty emerged unexpectedly, instinctually, almost unconsciously out of informal weekly gatherings at a Leeds studio space called The Nave. It was here where the collective’s core members, George Mitchell, Matt Peel, Josh Lewis and Imi Holmes, were ripped back from the brink, compelled to create music by the sort of organic artistic spark that only comes with truly egoless collaboration.Working with a cast of featured vocalists, they set out to survey the unconventional depths of contemporary electronic music, UK bass, garage, shoegaze, ambient and everything in between, never quite landing anywhere long enough to be boxed in.‘WHERE R U’ is available to independent retailers on white label LP with hand-printed jacket - every copy is unique.

Dadi Freyr Welcome Icelandic visionary Daði Freyr released his ‘Welcome’ EP digitally in 2021. It is now available on vinyl for the first time, with two remixes by Hot Chip and Chromeo. It includes the infectious Eurovision groove ‘Think About Things’ and its equally uplifting successor ‘10 years’. While the bangers you already know and love are on the tracklist including the global viral phenomenon smash hit ‘Think About Things’ and equally uplifting successor ‘10 years’, the rest of the EP shows Daði Freyr’s versatility as the master of sonically nuanced pop music. ‘Clear My Head’ is a nocturnal slice of electronica, layered with strings to lend not only atmosphere, but an emotional vulnerability that catches you off guard. The second of the two brand new tracks, ‘Somebody Else Now’, follows cinematic highs and lows with bombastic choruses and a tropical rhythm - throwing in a few powerful guitar riffs for good measure - which gives way to rousing strings and gentle piano, offering a sincerity to Daði Freyr’s sound that we’ve never heard before. Daði Freyr put ‘Welcome’ together as an introduction to his music for new listeners: “I wanted to give a taste of what I do before I dive into making a full-length debut LP. I like making music that’s fun to make, so this is the result of that. Also - a Chromeo remix, how crazy is that?!?” 10"
M Ward Duet for Guitars #2 Duet for Guitars #2 introduced us to M. Ward’s characteristic rasp and fingerpicking prowess. More minimal in scope than future records, the songs run the gamut from lullabies to rocking declarations of love. Released on Co-Dependent Records in 1999, one of the initial 1,000 copies found its way to Howe Gelb, who re-released it in 2000 on Ow Om. It went out of print and remained a hard-to-find piece of the M. Ward catalog until 2007, when it was reissued on Merge with three new tracks. More than an origin story, Duet for Guitars #2 is a beautiful, assured album that is sure to make lo-fi and Americana aficionados swoon, to say nothing of M. Ward fans new and old.
