JOHN MAUS - We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves - LP €26.99 (Ribbon)
JOHN MAUS - Love Is Real - LP €26.99 (Ribbon)
JOHN MAUS - Songs - LP €26.99 (Ribbon)
Re-issues of experimental pop artist John Maus' long out of print (and highly sought after!) albums. Maus is a truly enigmatic musician from Minnesota. Broadly cut from the synth pop cloth, he’s fashioned the frosty minimalism of its fabric into a cloak of infinite meaning, genuine grace and absurdist humour over the course of five defining albums since 2006. These are his first 3 full length LPs.
Each of the three LPs are pressed on heavyweight coloured vinyl.
VARIOUS ARTISTS - Black Man's Pride 2 - 2 x LP €29.99, CD € (Soul Jazz)
This is the second instalment of deep roots Rastafarian reggae at Studio One and features classic music from some of the most important figures in reggae music - Alton Ellis, The Heptones, Jackie Mittoo, The Gladiators - alongside a host of rarities and little-known recordings, such as a truly rare Mystic Revelation of Rastafari 7” single, Willie William’s first ever recording - ‘Calling’ - and Horace Andy’s righteous (and equally rare) masterpiece ‘Illiteracy.’
THE BEAT - Here We Go Love! - 2 x LP €19.99 (BMG)
The Beat return with a brand new studio album - their first since 1982! ‘Here We Go Love’ is a brand-new collection of 13 vital songs that have their feet in the here and now, but lose none of the fire and frenzy of those timeless immediate classics that made the band’s name.
VARIOUS ARTISTS - Trojan Records 50th anniversary - picture disc LP €23.99 (Trojan)
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Trojan Records, this commemorative picture disc LP features a dozen of the label’s biggest chart hits from the 1960s to the 1980s, performed by some of Jamaican music’s greatest stars. Pressed from the best possible vinyl, this picture disc features Trojan’s iconic helmet dominating one side of the disc, and the other emblazoned with the strikingly designed Trojan 50 logo.
BODY/HEAD - The Switch - LP €23.99 (Matador)
The second LP from the duo Body/Head who consist of Sonic Youth founding member Kim Gordon and Vampire Belt guitarist Bill Nace. ‘The Switch’ is their second studio full length and it finds the duo working with a more subtle palette, refining their ideas and identity. On this record their vision and focus feel truly unified. If debut album ‘Coming Apart’ was dark magic, ‘The Switch’ works with light, though it never forgets that these approaches are two sides of the same coin.
WOLF EYES - Dread - LP €22.99 (Lower Floor)
Originally released on Hanson Records, American Tapes and Bulb Records in 2001. A sought after early Wolf Eyes album back on vinyl and CD for the first time in 17 years. It filters circuit bent electronics, fried dub and the dystopian proto-punk of Cabaret Voltaire and Suicide through a distinctly Midwest USA sensibility. The result is a freak classic for the ages.
DEAFHEAVEN - Ordinary Corrupt Human Love - LP € (Anti/Epitaph)
Brand new album from Deafheaven 'Ordinary Corrupt Human Love' comes from a band that have been previously described as "black metal meets shoegaze" and "post metal".
Exclusive indie store coloured vinyl LP.
ERIC B AND RAKIM - Paid In Full - LP €29.99 (Universal)
Double LP reissue of one of the most revered and influential hip-hop albums of all time. A stone cold classic!
TOM WAITS - Foreign Affairs - LP €23.99 (Anti)
1977’s Foreign Affairs takes the jazz and poetry that Tom Waits explored on his earlier albums in a more cinematic direction, foreshadowing his own breakthrough work in the 80s. The album includes the song 'Never Talk To Strangers' a duet with Bette Midler.
Pressed on 180g coloured vinyl
GORILLAZ - Demon Days - 2 x LP €23.99 (Parlophone)
Re-issue of the second album from 'virtual band' Gorillaz. Includes the singles 'Dirty Harry', 'Kids With Guns', 'El Manana', 'Dare' and 'Feel Good Inc.' The record features guest appearances from the likes of De La Soul, MF Doom, Shaun Rider, Ike Turner, Martina Topley-Bird and Roots Manuva.
BIRDS IN A ROW - We Already Lost The World - LP €24.99 (Deathwish)
Birds In Row are a melodic/abrasive band from Laval, France. Blurring the lines between hardcore, punk, and related sub-genres, Birds In Row offer something of substantial weight to their listeners. Collectively carrying somber hearts and poignant souls, they navigate through melancholic seas to shape beautifully hook-laden songs unlike anything else out there today.
We Already Lost The World is released on an indie store only coloured vinyl LP
BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME - Automata II - LP €24.99 (Sumerian Records)
Automata marks the band’s first proper double LP-spanning concept. This LP is the second of a two-part set. They continue to expand their ever-evolving style, upholding a tradition of progression in the process.
Coloured vinyl LP.
CHELSEA GRIN - Eternal Nightmare - LP €20.99 (Rise)
New LP from the globe trotting deathcore band. Known for their technicality and brutal lyrics, 'Eternal Nightmare' packs a punch and is sure to be exactly what fans have been waiting for and more.
Limited edition coloured vinyl.

ROLLING STONES - From The Vault: No Security Live, San Jose '99 - 3 x LP €35.99 (Universal)
The Rolling Stones’ No Security tour ran from January to June 1999 through North America and Europe. In reaction to the huge stadiums played on their Bridges To Babylon the conscious decision was made to book smaller venues for the initial North American leg of the No Security tour. This latest addition to the acclaimed From The Vault series was filmed at the San Jose Arena in front of an audience of a little over 30,000 (intimate by Rolling Stones standards!) at the end of the North American dates. Previously unreleased, it captures the band in top form playing a set that spans from mid-sixties hit singles up to the then current Bridges To Babylon album.
GRATEFUL DEAD - Anthem Of The Sun - picture disc €21.99 (Rhino)
Limited 50th anniversary picture disc collector's edition. A blend of live and studio recordings featuring the definitive 1971 band mix.
YES - 90125 - LP €25.99 (Rhino)
