There have been some great releases during 2021 that you might have missed due to lockdown. The super six below may have drifted below radar given all that has been going on since January.
Dry Cleaning “New long leg” (yellow vinyl) £18 – Highly original album of post-punk, shape-shifting tracks … think Raincoats, Public Image Ltd, Gang of Four and Sonic Youth.
Joe Strummer “Assembly” (Red vinyl) With free Bandana. £25 – a new compilation of Joe’s solo output. Eclectic ain’t nearly the word as Joe tackles rock, pop, dub, rockabilly, hip-hop, and Spanish folk songs!
Lana Del Rey “Chemtrails over the country club” (Yellow vinyl) £20 – a very self-assured seventh album featuring reflections on Del Rey reflects on fame, love, loneliness and the solidarity of fellow female songwriters, from Joni Mitchell to Weyes Blood.
Faith No more “Who cares a lot (The greatest hits)” (gold vinyl) £30 – Some of their biggest hits from the period 1987 – 1997. Spread across four sides of glorious gold grooves!
The Wedding Present “Locked down and stripped back” £18 – The album features Wedding Present classics in acoustic, but not entirely unplugged form, plus a new duet with Sleeper’s Louise Wener.
Kings Of Leon “When you see yourself” (Cream vinyl) £25 – Rippling guitars and dirty riffs on their 8th album. “Arena rock of the mind” is a great description from Rolling Stone magazine.
Just use the contact form below if you would like any of these beauties. Please note that that contact form does indeed work. It just does a little on-screen ‘jerk’ once you press the ‘contact us’ button which is a little disconcerting. We still receive the messages though … honest!
As usual, delivery is free in the Stoke-on-Trent area and it is £3 for up to 3 albums elsewhere in the UK. Payment is by paypal. There are other postage options available should you require them.
Thanks pop fans, Ken x
