Mixing '60s pop with gritty guitar distortion and a nonchalant delivery, here's a reissue of a record I've still got from first time around - the second effort by Californian slacker-indie veterans The Aislers Set, 2000's 'The Last Match'. This time round the shabby-looking plain sleeve with pasted tracklist of the original is replaced with proper printed sleeves. If only I'd waited.
Beck’s 2002 album Sea Change marked something of a sea change (yeah we went there) for Beck’s own practice. There is much less in the way of sampling and cool-cat irony, and rather more in the way of sincere emotion. Plus, live-instrument tracks that engage with the smooth heartbreaky sounds of country rock. Double LP reissue on Geffen.
At the time, just after the turn of a new century, Vespertine felt like a logical progression from Homogenic, released four years previously. The increased orchestral presence is rich and lush, backed with more considered, detailed beats and songs which travel from the dark and folkloric to movingly romantic.
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of brutalist Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.
