Pixies Trompe Le Monde (30th Anniversary) For its 30th anniversary, Pixies 1991 album Trompe Le Monde is being reissued on limited marbled green vinyl, out September 24th 2021. Trompe Le Monde bookended a golden run of landmark records - a mini-album followed by four albums, released in quick succession – that cemented Pixies as one of the best for a generation. Translated from French to mean “fool the world”, Trompe Le Monde showed the band still restless to push their sound forward. Recorded between Burbank, Paris and London, with producer Gil Norton again at the controls, their fourth album is arguably their most playful with Black Francis’s lyrics on UFOs and conspiracy theories keeping things weird while power pop creeps in to amplify the space rock established on predecessor Bossanova. Featuring singles ‘Planet of Sound’, ‘Alec Eiffel’, ‘Letter to Memphis’ and a flawless cover of The Jesus and Mary Chain’s ‘Head On’, Trompe Le Monde goes full throttle with 15 tracks coming in a quickfire 40-minute salvo. Receiving critical praise at the time and being supported by a huge tour that included playing stadiums with U2, it also proved to be the end of act one for the band with them taking over a decade before returning to stage together. A brilliant record, Trompe Le Monde sounds just as fresh 30 years on with outlets such as Pitchfork concurring, retrospectively scoring it 9.3, they called it “more aggressive than anything in their catalog but also more confident. They can handle this now, and they do.” 4AD LP Pre-Order

The Human League Secrets Following a greatest hits compilation in the late 90s the Human League signed to the Papillon label. The line-up of Philip Oakey, Susan Sulley and Joanne Catherall recorded the “Secrets” album, with keyboard player Neil Sutton, who co-wrote most of the songs with Oakey, and programmer David Beevers providing the trademark Human League sound. The album’s release in 2001 was preceded by the single “All I Ever Wanted”, but both the single and album lost promotion and sales when Papillon ran into financial difficulties and was closed shortly after the album’s release. This 2LP edition features the original album over the first three sides, while the newly-added fourth side features a non-album B-side, along with one rare remix each of “All I Ever Wanted”, “You’ll Be Sorry” and “Love Me Madly?”.
