Record Store Day

Unfortunately due to the current situation surrounding COVID-19, the global organisers of Record Store Day have decided to postpone RSD this year. The current date is set at 20th June, although please be aware this is subject to change. 

The official UK list of RSD releases can be found here.

If you have any questions about any of the releases, please ask, we'll do our best to answer them! We're currently working hard on our own list (as we can't stock everything) so let us know if there's anything you are particuarly after and we'll do our best to stock accordingly! In accordance with the Record Store Day rules, all releases are sold on a first come, first served basis on the day so please don't ask us to reserve anything for you (we would if we could) so it's all fair.

Collectable Vinyl

Brigid Dawson - Ballet of Apes DINKED Edition 51
22/05 via Castle Face Recs

-Exclusive MAGENTA vinyl
-Folded 12x24" poster
-Signed inner sleeve
-Numbered /400

Those familiar with her harmonic counterpoint from her time in Thee Oh Sees or in OCS know she can belt as well as lullaby but there’s a fresh and smolderingly heavy swing in her step on display here that we mightily dig. “Ballet of Apes” tapestries together sessions that read like a who’s who from outside our own castle walls - in Australia with Mikey Young (Total Control/Eddy Current Suppression Ring), in San Francisco with Mike Donovan (ex Sic Alps), Shayde Sartin (ex Fresh & Onlys/lifetime ringer) and Mike Shoun (ex Oh Sees/Peacers), and in Brooklyn with instrumental heavy-weights Sunwatchers - and the results are spellbinding.


Kate NV- Room for the Moon DINKED Edition 50

Dinked Edition's half century comes at a weird time, but music will help...
Out 12/06

- Exclusive Swirled clear, blue & yellow vinyl
- Kiss-Cut Sticker Sheet
- Numbered sleeve /300

On Room for the Moon, Kate NV follows the muse of music from one chamber of illusion to the next, harmonizing lunar lullabies with a starry compositional choreography. Conjured from unlived memories of 70s and 80s Russian and Japanese pop music and film, Room for the Moon is a 20th century fairy tale suspended in time like a moon torn from a paper sky.


The Cool Greenhouse - S/T DINKED Edition 49
29/05 Melodic Records

*Dinked ‘Ultra Clear’ vinyl
*Signed & numbered postcard (300 only)
*OBI strip
*D/L w/2 exclusive tracks
* = DINKED exclusives!
The lush packaging includes ; a reverse board outer sleeve, matt black inner sleeve W/ centre holes & a matt art paper two sided insert.

Debut album from The Cool Greenhouse; hypnotic, home-brew post punk with a social conscience."I wanted to hear repetitive music that wasn’t pretentious” tells the band’s voice Tom Greenhouse of his personal agenda to inject some pop sentimentality into the rock’n’roll textbook. “The mission was to make long, repetitive pop music that wasn’t boring. I soon realised I could do that through focusing on the lyrics.”


Thee MVPs - Science Fiction DINKED Edition 48
29/05 via the bands own label Eeasy Records

Really nice Dinked Edition package:
-“super-on-the-nose-sci-fi-warpspeed-hyperspace” Splatter vinyl
-Dinked X MVPs Slipmat
-Hand- numbered art insert /350 only

This is the only 'exclusive' package of the album - other formats include CD & Standard LP (also available to pre-order, just ask)

Thee MVPs are an incredibly focused, close knit group of friends who have found a sound that iscompletely their own whilst operating on their own terms. After years of nearly relentless touringthat took them to the other side of the world and back, the band has fully articulated that sound with ‘Science Fiction’.
Recorded themselves and mastered in Chicago with Shellac’s Bob Weston, ‘Science Fiction’ features10-tracks of deceptively infectious riff-driven motoric grooves and beat heavy, high energy blowoutsthat demand movement. Each delivered with a sardonic smirk, these new tracks demonstrate theveteran quartet willingness and ability to renew themselves and the kraut/punk/garage/whatever-rock genre within which they operate, to expand on a sound that is hook heavy whilst also remaining challenging and innovative.


Once and Future Band - Deleted Scenes DINKED Edition 47
10/04/20 via Castle Face Records

-Translucent 'beer' vinyl*
-Poster (12x24" folded)*
-3 track flexi*

*Exclusive to Dinked edition!

The space-age songsmiths of Once and Future Band have been ting-tinging away on the truly heavy anvil of hominid perspective and emotion again to bring you this singing scape of songs. Annealing for over a year now, until it was cool enough to hold in your ears, nested in the pinnae, the time has finally come.
