Hundred Records goes online!

Thanks to all our loyal customers for sticking with us during the current lock-down. Apart from taking your orders by email and phone, we’ve been hard at work setting up our new online shop. Now you can buy and pay for your records online, and we’ll send them to you. Or, if you’re local, we could arrange delivery or even pick-up.

Hundred Records – online shop

We’ve been adding the items we have in stock as fast as we possibly can, but we’ve got thousands of items to list, and there’s still a long way to go! So don’t despair if you don’t find what you want in the shop – just drop us a line and we’ll let you know if we’ve got it in stock. If not, we’ll do our best to get it for you.

You’ll be able to reach our shop from here using the ‘Shop’ button in the top menu, or visit it direct at hundredrecords.co.uk (not .com).

We hope you’ll find this service helpful for getting hold of the essential music while we’re all locked down. If you’ve got any comments about the shop, let us know!

Latest new releases

Our super six for 5 June start with Sideways To New Italy, a return to home for Australian guitar-pop five-piece Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever after the relentless touring schedule for their critically regarded 2018 debut, Hope Downs. Artistically, they were inspired by a “bizarre place” that captured the feeling of manufacturing a sense of home: New Italy, a remote village in NSW founded by Venetian immigrants, with replica Roman statues dotted like alien souvenirs on the otherwise rural landscape. Already a three-time Grammy winner at just 28 years old, Sarah Jarosz explores the competing desires to escape and to stay put on World On The Ground. With the scope of a novel and a sound inspired by classic Texas songwriting, she paints a portrait that exists outside of time. To complete their album reissue programme, The Blue Nile worked diligently on High, released as a deluxe 2-CD set featuring more than 32 minutes of new music and for the very first time on LP – a reissue fans will truly enjoy. Quickies features twenty-eight new short songs by Stephin Merritt of Magnetic Fields, ranging in length from thirteen seconds to two and a half minutes and inspired by micro-fiction and baroque harpsichord music. Merritt used small notebooks to keep his creativity tightly focused. From its opening track, Teddy Thompson’s new album, Heartbreaker Please, reckons with the breakdown of love with a wistful levity as satisfying as it is devastatingly honest. It’s also a projection of his relationship with New York City, where this son of legends Linda and Richard settled after leaving home at 18. Teddy is a commanding artist at the top of his craft.

When a musical ensemble chooses to self-title an album mid-career, it usually signifies their conviction that they’ve struck the motherlode and arrived at a long-striven-for pinnacle. After months of aural alchemy in their native Manchester, propulsive jazz trio GoGo Penguin now take their upward trajectory to its next stage with this wondrously ambitious breakbeat-infused new album, which is our release of the week.

We swing back into the new release groove with a selection from 22 & 29 May, starting with Banana Skin Shoes (out 22 May), a huge statement of intent from Badly Drawn Boy and the most glorious, colourful, warming, honest pop record you’ll hear this year. If that’s not enough to tempt you, we have a free limited edition poster to give away with each pre-order. Tim Burgess, who’s been hosting numerous Twitter listening parties during lock-down, releases I Love The New Sky (out 22 May), written in the middle of nowhere with no distractions, just dreaming away with music. James Elkington’s new album, Ever-Roving Eye (out 22 May), moves from the traditions of 1970s folk revival to rope in echoes of British library music, horror-film soundtracks, demure psychedelia and more rocking elements of folk-rock. The result is a record even more elaborate, shrewd, thoughtful and confessional than its predecessor. Hether Blether (out 29 May) is the third and final album in a trilogy of releases shaped by the Orkneys, where contemporary composer and multi-instrumentalist Erland Cooper grew up. He has previously explored their birdlife and seas and, on this record, the land, manifesting an immersive collection of music, words and imagery. Lady Gaga’s highly anticipated sixth studio album, Chromatica (out 29 May), features collaborations with Ariana Grande, Elton John and Blackpink. Whether or not her machine-tooled pop extravaganzas are your thing, one thing Chromatica won’t be is boring!

If you’re a fan of Steve Earle, the fact that Ghosts Of West Virginia (out 22 May) centres on the Upper Big Branch coal-mine explosion that killed twenty-nine men in 2010 in that state in 2010, making it one of the worst mining disasters in American history shouldn’t surprise. Earle “thought that, given the way things are now, it was maybe my responsibility to make a record that spoke to and for people who didn’t vote the way that I did.” It’s our release of the week.
