Hundred Records re-opens!

Thanks to all our loyal customers for sticking with us during the lock-down.

We’re delighted that our doors are open again. At heart we are an old-fashioned record shop and we love to see our customers face to face, so this is something we’re really happy about. We’re making it as normal as possible, but with safety in mind. We’re keeping numbers to two customers in the shop at any one time, and if you’re browsing we’ll ask you to clean your hands on the way in and out. Initially 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 new webshop is 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. If there’s anything special you want, just let us know.

We hope to see you soon!!

Latest new releases

Our pick of 7 August’s releases starts with Eight Gates, the last collection of solo studio recordings Jason Molina made in London before his death, recorded in London around the time of the supposed spider bite and Jimi’s supposed parakeets; some of the songs are fully realised – dark, moody textures that call to mind his earlier work on The Lioness. 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of Bossanova, the third studio album by Pixies, which showed a less primal side to the band and even more cryptic, sci-fi influenced lyrics from Black Francis. This limited red-vinyl edition comes with the original 16-page booklet. “If you’re going to deconstruct the modern psyche,” says Liela Moss, “you might as well dance to it.” On her second solo album, Who The Power, Moss shows a questioning intensity, with a expressive force in her voice and synth-loaded drama – and, crucially, backed by the urgent grooves needed for the job. Influential jazz collective Idris Ackamoor And The Pyramids return with an epic opus, Shaman!, more introspective than 2018’s acclaimed An Angel Fell and featuring a fresh line-up. Hans Zimmer’s Grammy-nominated soundtrack to The Dark Knight Rises is ambitious and experimental, featuring a beautiful array of distinctive, unforgettable pieces that capture the essence of the characters, the film’s major sequences/moments and exemplary pacing.

Our release of the week is Whoosh!, which sees Deep Purple joining forces for the third time with producer Bob Ezrin, stretching out in all directions without limitation, letting their creativity go, and “putting the Deep back into Purple”.

We kick of our super six for 31 July with Dublin’s Fontaines D.C., who have returned with an intensely confident, patient and complex follow-up album to their hugely acclaimed debut. A Hero’s Death arrives battered and bruised, albeit beautiful – a heady and philosophical take on the modern world and its great uncertainty. The concept album The Delta Sweete is Bobbie Gentry’s most critically acclaimed album but has been unavailable since 1972. Newly mixed and mastered from multi-tracks, the album is supplemented by out-takes and demos, and the CD also features the original mono mix. Sex, Death And The Infinite Void is the second studio album by English punk band Creeper, whose devoted fan base were devastated when frontman Will Gould announced the end of the band during a sold-out Koko show in 2018, but who will now be delighted by this confident return. Such Pretty Forks In The Road is the ninth studio album by Canadian-American singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette – her first since 2012’s Havoc And Bright Lights – and features the singles ‘Reasons I Drink’, ‘Smiling’, and ‘Diagnosis’. At a time of high racial tension after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Thelonious Monk played the largely white college town Palo Alto in a show that almost didn’t happen but that turned out to be a triumph, and this historic concert is finally available.

Our release of the week comes from The Psychedelic Furs, whose first album in nearly 30 years sounds like the Furs and them alone. From its exhilarating opening bars to its close, Made Of Rain is a joy to listen to, and the Furs sound fresher than ever. They really are a cut above the rest.
