Our doors are open again!

We’re really excited to be able to open our doors again. At heart we are an old-fashioned record shop and we love to see our customers face to face, so this is wonderful news for us.

Your shopping experience will be as normal as we can make it. To keep us all safe we ask customers to wear a mask and to sanitise their hands on the way in, and we’re keeping numbers to two ‘customer bubbles’ in the shop at any one time.

The shop’s opening hours are 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday. If you can’t make it to the shop at those times, our webshop remains open 24/7. We’ll still be offering contactless collection for those that prefer, and we can also post your music to you for a small charge. Wish us luck, and we hope to see you soon!!

Latest new releases

Our picks for 16 and 23 April start with Flat White Moon from Field Music, who “want to make people feel good about things that we feel terrible about,” a statement which seems particularly fitting to this latest album. The Battle At Garden’s Gate introduces a new chapter from Greta Van Fleet, focused the internal and external battles we face, and informed by their experiences of different cultures while touring both some of the richest and the poorest places on earth. Rory Graham, aka Rag ’n’ Bone Man, returns three years after his ground-breaking, award-winning debut, Human, with Life By Misadventure, an incredible collection of emotional songs to touch us when we need it most that’s the perfect tonic for these times: an album of depth and soul, about growing up and moving forward. Here, at last, is Sweep It Into Space, the delayed fifth studio album by the reborn Dinosaur Jr, which brings some new elements to their signature sound and continues to expand their personal universe. Plastic Ono Band was the debut solo album by John Lennon, intended as a pair with Yoko’s album of the same name. The audio has been completely remixed from the original studio tapes, and shows that it is his voice that brings the biggest emotional impact of the album.

Our release of the week is Californian Soil, the highly anticipated third album from electro-pop heroes London Grammar, on which frontwoman Hannah Reid explores gaining possession of her own life in the midst of success and fame, and the challenge of retaining a vulnerable or feminine side in the face of misogyny.

Our picks from releases between 26 March and 9 April start with New Long Leg (2 Apr), the debut studio album from Dry Cleaning, which is thrillingly ambitious and complex, with Florence Shaw’s spoken vocals tightly intertwined with the band’s restless instrumentals. The Bitter Truth (26 Mar) is an epic, guitar-driven collection from Evanescence – a welcome a return-to-force after ten years, and one hell of a rock album – that’s inspired by the (often-bitter) realities of the 21st Century and our world. This Is Really Going To Hurt (9 Apr) is the latest from local band Flyte: a lucid documentation of lead singer Will Taylor’s formative breakup that follows the ending of a relationship through the stages of grief and acceptance. The title is evocative of knowing the decision you are about to make will change your life forever. New Direction (9 Apr) was the first album – oft-bootlegged, with original copies commanding princely sums – released by the most sought-after label, bar none, among jazz collectors! And since keyboardist Gene Russell was at the artistic helm of Black Jazz, it was only natural that the label’s debut record featured Russell himself. Amazônia (9 Apr) is an audio-visual project by Jean-Michel Jarre with renowned award winning photographer Sebastiao Salgado about the Amazonian forest, with 52 min of brand-new music composed by Jarre especially to accompany the photos in the exhibition.

Our release of the week comes from the inimitable Godspeed You! Black Emperor (2 Apr), who return with another soundtrack for our times. As the heretical anarcho-punk spirit of the title implies, G_d’s Pee AT STATE’S END! features some particularly raw power, spittle and grit across two riveting 20-minute side-length trajectories of noise-drenched widescreen post-rock. Twenty-five years on, this new album is as vital, stirring, timely and implacable as any in Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s storied discography.
