New Roll The Dice Video
Published 7 April 2011 by BWL

Our new signings Roll The Dice have released a 15-minute long video for their live version of 'Undertow', one of two tracks to feature on a limited edition 12", Live In Gothenburg - August 7 2010, which will be released on Record Store Day (April 16). This is the first time the track has been heard anywhere.

The slow-burning and rather sinister film was directed by Frode Fjerdingstad (who also made this video for the original version of 'The New Black'). Stick with it - your patience will be rewarded!

More observant Leaf followers will note that this is the second video we've released featuring a man in his underpants, following volcano!'s 'Africa Just Wants To Have Fun'...

The lavishly packaged 12" will be available to purchase from our shop from April 16th onwards, along with a digital download. But please do get out and support your local record shop on that date!

Published 15 April 2011 by BWL

As previously noted, Roll The Dice release their first record on Leaf, Live In Gothenburg - August 7 2010, tomorrow (April 16) as part of Record Store Day.

By way of a preview, Dummy magazine premiered 'The New Black' earlier today, which you can find here.

Don't forget that you can listen to the other track on the 12", 'Undertow', by watching the ever-so-slightly disturbing video here.

RTD are currently mixing their second album, which will be released this autumn, but for now, enjoy the tracks, and enjoy Record Store Day!

Postage Price Increases
Published 28 April 2011 by BWL

We've kept them down as long as possible, but due to two recent Royal Mail postage price increases and a raise in the rate of UK VAT, the postage and packaging charges in our online store are unfortunately going to have to rise in the next few weeks. We thought we'd warn you before we made the changes, so if you've been holding out to make an order, now might be a good time to do it!

Keep an eye out for the discounted artist bundles we've been adding to the store recently, you can find them here.
