JUNK DRAWER - Ready For The House (Repress) - LP - Clear w/ Blue Splatter Vinyl



LP - Limited Edition 2nd pressing on Milky Translucent Vinyl with Blue Splatter.

Incorporating the imprint of post-punk, Krautrock and psychedelia, Belfast's Junk Drawer's intuitively loose and idiosyncratic brand of indie rock mines anthems from their crate-digging tendencies - post-punk, krautrock, psychedelia, art rock - reaching an unpigeonholeable, singular approach to creation & live performance. Featuring four multi-instrumentalists & vocalists fluid in their roles, they're driven by the inevitable harmony and discordance that comes from the sibling creative rivalry at the helm.

Debut LP 'Ready For The House' was released through Art For Blind Records in April 2020. Across eight tracks, the band filter their typically broad range of influences to deliver a brutally honest, yet sardonic exploration of the personal malady and redemption: anxiety, depression, eating disorders, social conscience, chronic illness and identity. Met with widespread acclaim, it placed in The Quietus' Best Albums of 2020, and received coverage from the likes of The Line of Best Fit (8/10), So Young, PopMatters & Gigwise (8/10) and GoldenPlec (8/10).

Junk Drawer have been played by the likes of KEXP, BBC Radio 1 & BBC 6Music, and featured in Stereogum, Paste, Bandcamp, The Quietus, Clash, So Young, and The Line Of Best Fit, amongst others. They have shared stages with acts like Built To Spill, Temples, Mclusky & Jeffrey Lewis. Following an early pair of self-released EPs, the band spearheaded the grassroots Irish music community with their part in regular sell-out independent vinyl compilation A Litany of Failures.

Their single 'Year of the Sofa' (described as a 'slo-mo guitar pop jewel' by CLASH) took Best Single at the NI Music Prize 2019, making Junk Drawer the first DIY band to take home a prize at the ceremony. They sold out the first pressing, as well as each Irish date since its release.

Their forthcoming EP ‘The Dust Has Come To Stay’ is in the queue to be pressed on 12” recycled black vinyl via Art For Blind and is expected to be available sometime around August. It's currently only available on digital platforms.  Singles from it, ‘Tears In Costa’ & ‘Railroad King’ & 'Suspended Anvil' have already been covered by the likes of KEXP, Bandcamp & Stereogum, were included on Paste Magazine & The Quietus’ Tracks of the Month, and were featured on playlists from the likes of Sub Pop & Spotify’s Fresh Finds Indie.
