Portable Radio - Portable RadioRegular price £15.00
For fans of harmonies and power pop, the debut album from Portable Radio is the natural heir to the Beach Boys when they had beards, The Zombies, Carole King, Bee Gees, Weyes Blood, Drugdealer, Hall & Oates and all that solid gold pop we love!
It's worth pointing out that our very own Mof is in the band, but we're not being biased, honest! Limited run, so don't hang about for this!
Sprinters - SprintersRegular price £12.00
Sprinters is the brain-child of Manchester-based songwriter Neil Jarvis. Originally hailing from Wigan, Jarvis has been releasing music under his own name since 2012 and is a regular fixture on the Manchester music scene. After years spent playing solo, he slowly started to recruit a backing band for live shows before settling with a permanent band and forming Sprinters in late 2015. These are Jarvis himself, Jon Hodson (bass), Mark Stevenson (drums) and Jason Hughes (guitar). Over the past two years, Sprinters have forged a reputation as one of the most thrilling live acts in the city, and have played support slots for high profile acts such as The Monochrome Set, Chastity Belt, Holy Wave and La Luz, as well as shows all over the UK under their own steam.
'Sprinters' is the band's first studio effort, and was recorded (mostly) live in Wigan throughout 2016 with friend of the band, local engineer Ste Jones. Comprised of a selection of songs from Jarvis's solo albums and new material, the record proved to be a labour of love, taking just under 12 months to piece together. Sprinters have emerged triumphant with a pure departure record, heavy on hooks, melodic and lyrical interplay, and a more clear and honed sound than their previous lo- fi recordings. Jarvis cites some of his major influences for the process as: The Replacements, Pavement, Neil Young, Ariel Pink and The Velvet Underground.
The Bluetones - A New Athens RSD 2021Regular price £25.00
The Hipshakes - Sounds We FoundRegular price £16.00
Yes, here's the long-lost second album by garage punk hit-machines The Hipshakes! Just over six years after it was recorded, finally a full release for Sounds We Found. It's the Hipshakes first attempt to record in actual Medium Fidelity. Played at super speed with their usual ultra-excellent songwriting ability on show, life, death and how to party are all dissected, usually in under two minutes.
Former teen sensations from small market town, civil parish, capital of the Peak District and home of the Pudding - Bakewell - The Hipshakes have been friends since before they can remember. They bought instruments at 15 and have been playing together ever since. Early efforts were snotty-nosed and short, brilliant and bratty. With advancing years their noses may have dried up but the hits haven't. Formed in 2001, their first slew of records and tours of Europe and America were unleashed between 2005 and 2008, calling in at South By Southwest and Gonerfest. 2014 unbelievably saw them tour the UK for the first time. On this record, they are a classic three-piece combo of guitar, drums and bass: everyone writes songs and everyone sings them. They have travelled the world, played hundreds of gigs, released dozens of records and been cheered and jeered in roughly equal measure. Live, they are a ferociously exhilarating, mega-mondo smash-hit pop-fountain.
