New Releases
Marc Almond - "Chaos And A Dancing Star"
Marc Almond returns with his 22nd solo album ‘Chaos and a Dancing Star’. The title informs many of the album’s themes, emerging in various forms: mortality in ‘Black Sunrise’ and ‘Dust’, as well as saying farewell and leaving a legacy in ‘Cherry Tree’ and ‘When The Stars Are Gone’. The jaunty ‘Slow Burn Love’ provides light amongst the darkness, with its hope of finding ever-lasting love - a counterpoint to Marc’s common premise that love inevitably proves to be a disappointment. Limited edition orange vinyl.
Caroline Polachek - "Pang"
Ex-Chairlift member Caroline Polachek delivers her debut solo LP. Started in 2017, two years of feverish writing has led to the most ambitious, hardcore and beautiful album of her career to date. With her signature 'organic autotune' and liquid lyricism finally center stage, the record positions her firmly as one of the most singular and captivating singers of a generation. Clear and gold vinyl.
Destroyer - "Have We Met"
Have We Met, as Dan Bejar puts it, ‘came together in such a crazy way – all equal parts ecstasy and terror’. Initially conceived (but quickly ditched) as a Y2K album, Bejar was without a clear concept in mind. Culled from years’ worth of saved writing, set aside for projects “beyond music.” The resulting vocal sound exists in the sweet spot between two Destroyer worlds colliding: hints of the past, more strident Destroyer mixed in with a relaxed, new-aged Crooning one. Limited edition indies exclusive blue & yellow swirl vinyl.
Dinked double-header - Smoke Fairies / Squirrel Flower
Super limited edition versions of two fine LPs

Smoke Fairies - "Darkness Brings The Wonders Home"

Squirrel Flower - "I Was Born Swimming"
Wild Nothing - "Laughing Gas"
The third EP from Jack Tatum delves deeper into the territory where he thrives: namely, the synth and sophisti-pop of the 1980s. Working within a more mechanical and synthetic framework than his previous releases, Wild Nothing continues to delicately toe the line between the organic and the unnatural. These are still pop songs, but there’s an underlying sense of uneasiness that threads the music together. Milky white coloured vinyl.
Dan Deacon - "Mystic Familiar"
With "Mystic Familiar", Dan gives us the result of years of obsessive work, play, and self-discovery. It’s at once his most emotionally open record and his most transcendent, 11 kaleidoscopic tracks of majestic synth-pop that exponentially expand his sound with unfettered imagination and newfound vulnerability. Limited edition silver vinyl.
