Afternoon folks, how the jolly old fuck have you been? I am sitting in the house waiting on the delivery of our next Split 12″ – the one with Plastic Animals, Magic Eye, Le Thug and Zed Penguin – and fairly twitching to get my grubby mitts on one for the first time.
We actually just put a few interesting things up for pre-order on the label website, including that very split 12″, the Sparrow and the Workshop album and a new single which is still *cough cough* a secret.
I know this is a pretty obvious one, but holy fuck, meteorites came crashing to Earth in Russia today! And apparently, in distinctly Bruce Willis style, the Russian government are claiming to have successfully shot some of them down with missiles! That gif at the top of the page is apparently of one of them exploding, and the Guardian have an image gallery (mostly just of the damage) which I assume they’ll be updating throughout the day, as well as a live report, and this incredible video compilation of amateur footage. Immense!
2. Song of the Day: Furrow – Rites of Spring
These chaps are touring with North American War in April, and we’ll be putting on the Edinburgh leg of that tour. This is nice – shoegazey and gravelly, but I like it.
This reminds me just a teensy little bit of that awesome film Monsters. And it is every bit as excellent, and so wonderfully deadpan as well.
I don’t want to get into the habit of acting like some sort of product placement service, but these posters from Pop Chart Lab are pretty fantastic. I think I should buy my dad one of the baseball ones.
5. THESE CAME!
Aren’t they fucking gorgeous! Don’t you want one! Pre-order here then, and we’ll post them out in March.
