Nancy Elizabeth returns with new album and shows
Published 6 February 2013 by BWL

Nancy Elizabeth has completed work on her third album (her first since 2009’s Wrought Iron) which we’re planning to release before the summer. We’re pretty excited about it - it’s definitely her best yet. To get you in the mood, she's announced two shows in March to road test the new material. The first is at London's Vortex club on March 26 (with a full band), while she’s also been invited to perform and speak as part of a TEDx University of Manchester event a couple of days later, at the Manchester Museum. Visit our live page here.

Keep an eye out for the first single from Nancy's new record which will be unveiled very soon…

Leaf on Beat Delete
Published 25 February 2013 by RM

Beat Delete is a brilliant new initiative by the good folks at Ninja Tune. The idea is to get some long lost vinyl releases back into print through the magic of crowdsourcing.

You can place a pre-order for the releases you're interested in, and once they hit a certain threshold the labels will re-press the albums on vinyl and you will be charged for your purchase.

We've signed up and added a selection of our most sought after vinyl albums to the site, including releases by Murcof, Caribou, Efterklang, Colleen and Roll The Dice. Please note that our reissues will not be on 180g vinyl, which the site currently suggests.

If there are any other albums you'd like to see back in print, let us know!

[Always worth checking our Discogs outlet store for some of the rarer vinyl releases if you can't wait...]

Roll The Dice remix Julia Kent
Published 26 February 2013 by BWL

Roll The Dice have completed a superb remix of 'Transportation' from Character, and we’re making it available for free through Julia’s Bandcamp from today (you can also find it via a premiere on Spin).

Character is released next week, but you can stream the album in full now over at Dummy magazine, or on Bandcamp (player embedded below). We’re posting out album pre-orders from our shop now, and it's also available as an iTunes (UK, US) digital exclusive this week.

Creative Review picked out Luke Drozd's stunning artwork for Character as one of their record sleeves of the month. See it in its full glory here.
