Sam Fender Hypersonic Missiles Indies exclusive LP is on clear vinyl. The hugely anticipated debut full length album from singer-songwriter Sam Fender. There’s a loose thread that has run through all of Sam’s songs to date and that’s in the focus of his lyrics. Observational, questioning and socially engaged, Sam has an innate gift for simplifying matters of the newsworthy and topical. “I don’t have answers only questions” he clarifies on the eyebrow-raising multi-vocal layered new track White Privilege, but there’s a canny simplicity here that seems to be touching and speaking plainly to people in their hundreds of thousands. Those words reflect conversations occurring right across the globe, amongst friends in cafes, pubs, and out on the terraces. Frustrations. Misunderstandings. Despair. CD | LP Pre-Order

BAILEN Thrilled To Be Here BAILEN’s musicality springs from a very deep well, in fact, it’s in their DNA. Raised in New York City by their classically trained parents, siblings Daniel, David and Julia Bailen (fraternal twins and younger sister, respectively) immersed themselves in a record collection that included Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, Carole King and The Band. Produced by GRAMMY-Award winner John Congleton (St. Vincent, The War on Drugs) the transcendent harmonies, striking arrangements and meticulous songcraft of BAILEN’s debut album, Thrilled To Be Here, are rooted in the young group’s unusual self-assurance, preternatural insight and potent lyrical bite.

Calexico / Iron & Wine Years to Burn The first full length collaborative album from the incredible Calexico with Iron & Wine. “Life is hard. Awesome. And scary as shit. But it can lift you up if you let it,” Sam offers. “These are the things Joey and I write about now. And the title can encapsulate a lot of things. ‘Years to Burn’ could mean you’re cocky, you’ve got it made. Or, our life is ours to burn, to be inspired. Or you’re burned by life, brutalized. It’s an ambiguous title, because life is complicated. Let’s not talk like teenagers about love, desire, pain, ‘cause we’re not teenagers. And that’s not a bad thing.” “This project had to find the right time,” Joey concludes. “We’re all different people than we were in 2004, and music helps to bridge some of the gaps. For all the things going on in our world and in each of our lives, this connection, this friendship, this love that we have-this album is a vehicle for that bond. It’s a chance to see where we’re at, take stock and be there for our friends.” City Slang CD | LP Pre-Order
Suede The Insatiable Ones A triple-disc package of the 2018 documentary of the legendary Suede. Brett Anderson has made a point of saying that this documentary – directed by Mike Christie – isn’t “a powder-puff promotional tool” rather it “grasps at the very essence of what the band is, charting the scruffy inglorious years of struggle, the vertiginous heights of success and the dank depths of self-destruction and hopefully emerges at the end of it all with some truths revealed and some myths destroyed”.

USA Nails Life Cinema The new full length album from the might USA Nails. Ultra raw and gritty rock driven tunes but with plenty of melody and lyrical hooks. Fans of IDLES, Slaves, Metz and Drug Church should give this a listen. "Full of absolute bangers. They rave about pointless jobs, wannabe artists, social anxiety, offices that have fridges with beer in them and Epsom. USA Nails may or may not appeal to fans of Wire, The Fall, Devo, Pissed Jeans, Wire and early Sonic Youth. Huzzah!" Dipped In Gold LP Pre-Order
