Roll The Dice Debut Album For Sale, Live Recording, Mixes
Published 4 October 2011 by BWL

Roll The Dice's self-titled debut album was released on Digitalis Recordings at the beginning of 2010 and we've managed to get hold of a few CD copies to sell in our shop (the vinyl is long gone, and something of a collector's item already). The limited edition release can be purchased here.

The duo made their UK debut last month at Café Oto and the lovely people at Dummy recorded the show. You can listen to three of the tracks tracks here. All of RTD's shows are listed below, with more to follow soon.

Meanwhile, the Swedes have been busy putting together some mixes, the first of which was for BBC 6 Music's Tom Ravenscroft. It was aired on his show at the end of September. Following a live theme, the cracking (though brief!) mix can be streamed below:

A second playlist comes courtesy of RBMA Radio's Headphone Highlights programme, for which Peder and Malcolm chose 15 tracks (with commentary). This one definitely comes with Leaf's nod of approval! Stream it here.

Leaf Mixtape For Jumbo 40th
Published 21 October 2011 by BWL

2011 is the 40th anniversary of our favourite local record store, Jumbo Records, which is quite an achievement. The Leeds-based shop asked us to compile a Leaf mixtape, which Tony put together this week, and we've lovingly hand-packaged the lot: 50 individually numbered CDRs that won't be available anywhere else. The mix takes in tracks from the last 13 years, going back as far as Susumu Yokota's first release on the label, and brings us right up to date with exclusive tracks from 2012 releases by Matthew Bourne, volcano! and another artist that we haven't even announced we're working with yet (and we're not going to tell you now!).

You will be able to get your hands on one of the CDs by popping into the shop on Saturday 22 October, or alternatively, a few will be made available through their website on Saturday morning. Don't sleep on this - they will be gone in the blink of an eye!

There will plenty more going on instore including live sessions with the likes of Corinne Bailey Rae, and a special anniversary beer! Find out more here.

Here's what to expect of RTD's live show, well if the lights are dimmed to the max and the sound gets distorted! This is one of three live videos taken at last month's show in the duo's hometown of Stockholm. You can see all of them on youtube or vimeo (from next week!):
