Published 1 November 2019 by DM

Lunch is served. Something for everyone.

Your favourite uncles are on top of their game, digging through an immaculate record collection with complete abandon. No rules. No time to re-sleeve one disc before we’re onto the next. Iggy Pop and Kool Keith make an appearance. All fuel for the fire. Cooked to perfection.

Listen in to Warmduscher’s Tainted Lunch now.

We’ve sold out of the limited edition red vinyl edition online, but the band have some on tour and you’re welcome to ask at your local independent record shop. Selected shops are also stocking the super mega pink Dinked Edition with glow in the dark 7”. Good luck tracking one of those down.

Introducing Craven Faults
Published 4 November 2019 by DM

’Tis the season for long-form analogue electronic journeys across decades and continents, and swathes of post-industrial northern Britain. So it’s just as well we bumped into Craven Faults out on the moors. We’re very pleased to welcome the elusive Yorkshire-based producer to The Leaf Label, for the release of debut album Erratics & Unconformities. It follows three EPs: Netherfield Works, Springhead Works and Nunroyd Works plus a remix EP on the Lowfold Works label.

Listen to new single ‘Deipkier’ now and watch the video here.

The journey on Erratics & Unconformities picks up where Netherfield Works left off. We take the canal towpath out of the city. We fork north shortly afterwards. Is this where it started? The terrain gradually becomes more rugged. Familiar. Wild. Evidence of human activity is less immediate in this glacial landscape. It’s there if you seek it. But easy to ignore. If you listen carefully, you can still hear the weight of the ice-sheet carving its way through the rock.

Everything in its own time. The output from the old textile mill Craven Faults calls home is no longer as linear as it once was. There was no clear start point for the project, rather simply rediscovering the joy in experimentation with no material goals. Some of the recordings that make up Erratics & Unconformities go back almost seven years. Tracks have come and gone in that time. They don’t leave until they’ve undertaken a stringent quality control process. It started slowly, but has picked up momentum in the last eighteen months. Recorded and re-recorded to the correct level of imperfection, and then left to breathe. Mixed and re-mixed. Carefully compiled when the time was right.

The journey is just as important as the destination.

Erratics & Unconformities will be released January 10th. Pre-order now on limited edition double transparent yellow vinyl LP, double black vinyl LP and limited edition 3CD box set which features all 10 tracks from the four Lowfold Works 12” EPs.

Julia Kent - Salt Point
Published 7 November 2019 by DM

Wrap yourself up in a typically beautiful new/old Julia Kent track. 'Salt Point' is one of two previously unreleased tracks to feature on the Green and Grey (expanded) vinyl reissue that will hit shops on November 29th for Record Store Day Black Friday 2019.

Of the track Julia says, "It was inspired by the landscape of the Hudson Valley in upstate New York, which has a very particular, golden, glancing light, and a way of almost looking painted by the changing seasons."

Watch the exquisite new video by Jola Kudela.

Julia's UK tour with Erased Tapes saxophonist Daniel Thorne starts next week. You know you want to.

Tue 12 Nov J2, Cambridge Junction, Cambridge

Sarathy Korwar - Coolie
Published 21 November 2019 by DM

Sarathy Korwar finishes a big year with the release of his 'Coolie' single. Taken from the blistering, politically-charged More Arriving album, it features a rework by dub legend Dennis Bovell and a live version from Delhi’s Boxout Weekender festival.

“‘Coolie’ is based on the history of indentured Indian labourers (know as coolies) being used to replace African slaves on sugar plantations after slavery was abolished,” explains Korwar. Indian reggae/dancehall artist Delhi Sultanate narrates the story of labourers brought to Jamaica by the East India Company to work British plantations and brought cannabis seeds with them in the process. “Many rich multi-national companies like Tata and EIC made huge sums of money through this trade of people and labour.”

More Arriving has just been awarded Jazz Album Of The Year in MOJO. High praise indeed!

Sarathy has also been invited to play at the prestigious Winter Jazzfest in New York by Gilles Peterson, on January 9th at Le Poisson Rouge. Get your tickets now.
