New This Week

19th July 2019

1. Kit Sebastian - Mantra Moderne

Rough Trade Exclusive blue vinyl.

Everyone hears something different on this record. The duo comprised of Kit Martin (played and wrote all instrumentation) and Merve Erdem (wrote and sang all the vocals) have such widely cast influences it is hard to fit them all in here. Anatolian psych guitars, tropicalia percussion, delicate and flirtatious ye-ye vocals sang in Turkish, French and English. If Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra spent more time at Mr Bongo’s record shop in the 90's, they might have started to sound like this. A dusty, mysterious and spellbinding album that defies space and time.

2. Brian Eno with Daniel Lanois and Roger Eno - Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks (Extended Edition)

Accompanying album comprising of 11 new instrumental compositions reimagining the soundtrack to For All Mankind.

Re-issued into our lives again for the first time since its 1983 harmonious landing, Apollo: Atmospheres And Soundtracks is a gently claustrophobic collaborative embodiment of the Apollo 11 moon landing from Mr Brian Eno, his brother Roger, Daniel Lanois and the multi-accomplished Al Reinert.

Time sure flies doesn’t it, and here we now are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the historical space adventure. Complete with an accompanying record of eleven new instrumental tracks, this is guaranteed going to be a blissful spine tingle of an indulgent listen. We can only imagine Apollo: Atmospheres And Soundtracks will be as delightful for the lucky few who’ve touched the big cheese in the sky as it is for those of us whose feet have never left gravity.

3. Thom Yorke - ANIMA

Deluxe double 180 gram vinyl with bonus track. Comes in hardback book with lyrics and drawings.

Made alongside the Paul Thomas Anderson film of the same name. All 9 tracks that are featured in the film are on the album, plus an extra track, exclusive to the vinyl version. Like Thom Yorke's finest moments in music, this album feels like a single thread. Exploring his undiluted electronic side from throbbing synths, textured beats, enigmatic melodies and cleansing crescendos. Typically, anxiety and regret fuel his lyricism but don't let that dissuade you, we may be talking about Thom Yorke's best solo material yet.

4. Various - Sunny Side Up

Rough Trade Exclusive green and gold vinyl.

Brownswood Recordings have taken a break from smoggy old London to travel down under. Holidaying in sunny Melbourne, sniffing out the most radiant talent in Australian jazz and neo-soul. The Melbourne scene grew from local bands, The Bamboos and Hiatus Kaiyote and their influence can be heard in the muted chimes of the Fender Rhodes, the strong vocal performances and groove-centric rhythms. Sunny Side Up could, and hopefully will, be the first in a series of many.
