David Holmes
The Holy Pictures

David Holmes’ 2008 LP The Holy Pictures receives its first vinyl pressing courtesy of 3 Loop Music. ‘I Heard Wonders’ is the hit - you’ll recognise it from the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics - but there’s so much more to this record. The Northern Irish singer-songwriter crams everything from Motorik Krautrock to The Jesus And Mary Chain to hauntological drone into this dense, powerful paean to his hometown of Belfast.

The Bluetones
Expecting To Fly

It’s been 2 full decades since the release of The Bluetones’ debut full-length, Expecting To Fly. Landing square in the middle of the 90’s, the time was right for the Tones’ melodic britpop sound, merging Stone Roses longing with Oasis attitude. Vinyl reissue on the 3 Loop Music label.


Varying from ten to eleven tracks depending on which version you get, Cuckoo is the dark and almost gothic release from Curve. The record explores a completely different world from other release by them, an open book of new personal ideas. Available on Vinyl LP and CD and is released on 3 Loop Music. 


Doppleganger was the debut LP for this sandblasted shoegaze outfit who were a ton heavier and danceable than the wan indie strummers of the day. Then pulverising record has been re-issued on vinyl but it might be the double CD you want which collects all their earlier EPs and features an Aphex Twin remix! 

Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine
Hello, Good Evening, Welcome. And Goodbye: Live At Maida Vale

An hour long live session from the late 80’s indie rockers, recorded at Maida Vale for Steve Lamacq. This was the last radio session and Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine would stop playing as a group two weeks later. Features 14 songs from across their back catalogue and covers of The Pet Shop Boys and Inspiral Carpets.

Earl Brutus
Your Majesty... We Are Here

Much-missed cult favourites Earl Brutus have their work reissued by 3 Loop Music. Cutting post-punk super-pop. Your Majesty… We Are Here (an admirably bold title for a debut album) comes with a bonus CD, full of all the contemporary B-sides, alongside extremely rare remixes from David Arnold and Alan Vega of Suicide(!)

The Bluetones
Return To The Last Chance Saloon

Reissue of the 1998 album by The Bluetones. Return To The Last Chance Saloon was one of the group’s most popular records, and it is itself returned to by this expanded reissue. The full original album is boosted with a live Newcastle gig, BBC radio sessions from the period, and each band member’s favourite B-sides. Re-pressed by 3 Loop Music.

Sea of Bees
Build a Boat To The Sun

Sea Of Bees a.k.a Julie Ann Bee follows her confident first two albums with a positive, major key effort Build A Boat To The Sun. Backed by a full band it’s a more bombastic effort that’s packed full of catchy summer-ready tunes. Mixed by Jesse Lauter from The Low Anthem. Out on CD and vinyl LP from 3 Loop Music.

The Pre New
The Male Eunuch

Featuring members of both World of Twist and Earl Brutus, The Pre New have captured a place in our hearts with their minimalistic and sardonic electronic music. The Male Eunuch is their second full length album and expected to feature a bunch of curious, catchy and addictive tracks, appealing to all your potentially gender-diffused preferences.

The Auteurs
How I Learned To Love The Bootboys

As songwriter Luke Haines began to focus his energies on new musical projects, such as Black Box Recorder, his output with the Auteurs began to dwindle, and 'How I Learned To Love The Bootboys' became their final document, a moody, typically downbeat record with a dramatic, end-days feel (those strings!). Now it gets the reissue treatment from 3 Loop Music, with a ridiculous amount of b-side additives. 

Lost Girls
Lost Girls - Expanded Edition

Lost Girls' self-titled debut LP has been a long time coming: the original duo (Kitchen of Distinction's Patrick Fitzgerald and 4AD's Heidi Berry) formed in 1998 as somewhat of a work in progress, wrote some songs and played a handful of live shows. The band soon expanded with the addition of three more members (Ashley Wood, Dave Morgan and Kim Smith) and the material got a collective reworking. Apart from single 'Needle's Eye' being independently released in 1999, the remainder of their recordings were left pretty much untouched, unreleased and subsequently unheard. This 2 CD set contains all of the originally intended album (CD1) a long with bonus material (CD2) so they can finally get the attention they deserve. 

Jack Adaptor
J' Accuse!

The Family Cat frontcat Paul Frederick has a new album with his duo Jack Adaptor, who also feature co-songwriter Christopher Cordoba, with Frederick covering the lyrics and vocals and Cordoba taking care of the instruments and production. It's sophisticated up-tempo indie rock and features homages to the Velvet Underground and Big Star. Frederick says it's "a distillation of 20 years of thinking about music and the kind of record I wanted to make", and optimistically-titled second single 'Number One Record' has been in rotation on Lamacq.

Beth Orton
Central Reservation - Expanded Edition

It was released in 1999 as a follow up to the acclaimed Trailer Park and received a Mercury Music Prize nomination and helped Beth earn a BRIT Award in 2000 for Best British Female. The album also features in the book, 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. The album featured the hit singles Stolen Car and Central Reservation and is now re-issued with a second disc of material compiled by Beth. It features key b-sides, including the Spiritual Life Ibadon remix of title track Central Reservation plus unreleased live recordings and demos. The expanded packaging features brand new sleevenotes including a new interview with Beth.

Baader Meinhof
Baader Meinhof

A concept album from Luke Haines as Baader Meinhof between Auteurs albums, the record and band name comes from the names of two of the Red Army faction and details the history of the group. With five new bonus tracks, four of which were previously unreleased. Also the name of a weird type of synchronicity. Google it. Vinyl and CD.
