Pennsylvania's Balance and Composure return with their third long-awaited third album. Moving slightly away from their aggressive sound of old, Light We Made is their most melodic and expansive record to date.
From the moment we first heard this record we were head over heels in love so we're delighted to be giving one of 2015's best albums a first European vinyl pressing. PWR BTTM, if you're not yet antiquated, are an incredibly important band and Ugly Cherries an absolutely amazing record, documenting the duo's experiences with queerness, gender and adulthood over the course of a year living in upstate New York.
Following the release of their debut EP ‘Change Nothing’ in January, Terrible Love are back with their massive, politically charged new single ‘False Flag’, now available on limited edition, 7" FlexiDisc. Dealing with the band’s disillusion and anger with the EU Referendum, it's a certified banger.
A different take on the OK#1 album, OK#2 represents a different version of The Fall of Troy, capturing the raw fury of their live shows and earlier albums.
This band doesn't mess around. Less than a year after the release of their critically acclaimed debut, Beach Slang drop A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings, their brilliant follow up record. Comprised of ten typically heart on the sleeve, fist in the air punk anthems, the album is released across three formats, including a highly limited cassette and vinyl which features a huge 16 page lyric booklet.
On their latest release Cassels continue to explore big ideas with even bigger songs. On this new EP lyricist Jim tackles the subjects of living too long, the numbing effects of social media, the privatisation of the NHS, and addresses personal family struggles with a trademark caustic wit and dark humour.
What Gives has been on constant rotation in our office for months now and we're delighted to finally give this brilliant record a vinyl release.
For fans of: Algernon Cadwallader, Grown Ups, Delta Sleep

We've been in love with this band for a while now so it's an honour to be releasing their new record in the UK and Europe.

Holy Ghost is the third album from Philadelphia's incredible, unstoppable Modern Baseball. The record spans 28 minutes with writing handled equally between co-songwriters Jacob Ewald and Brendan Lukens, compiling the highs and lows of the past two years, tales from the road and glorious days at home alongside songs of heartbreak and personal struggle.
The debut EP from a band so new they've only just played their first couple of shows. Featuring ex-members of Bastions, Funeral For A Friend, Goodtime Boys, Grappler and Crocus, Change Nothing is a short, sharp blast of what's to come from this incredible exciting five piece.

Recorded over two very special, long sold out nights at London's beautiful St Pancras Old Church in May 2015, this album perfectly captures the incredible atmosphere and acoustics as Kevin played through songs from his eight studio album back catalogue, as well as dabbling in Bad Books and Miracle of 86.

Beach Slang sprung out of Philadelphia just one year ago and have already taken the world by storm.

Debut album from the three piece formed between Germany and the Netherlands.
