Rural Psychedelia

With the unexpected new Flying Saucer Attack album in the racks and a multi-page feature in The Wire we round up all the albums we have in stock by some of the bands in the Bristol scene of the '90's and beyond. An incredibly important wave of music although due to the lack of availability of a lot of it (not one Movietone record is in print  - travesty!) we've fleshed it out with some of the bands who have obviously been influenced by the innovators.

Astatine
Chamber Fracture

Sold out - sorry!

Belong
Common Era

Vinyl and CD reissue of Belong's Common Era, the first long player to be released since the celebrated but underexposed October Language. This album retains the fuzzed out ambience but augments the gorgeous, Hecker-esque wooziness with a more song based, shoegaze approach, replete with drums and vocals.

Flying Saucer Attack
New Lands

Released in 1997, New Lands is the eight-track pioneering record from Flying Saucer Attack. A solid and creative album that brings together different elements of their dreamy yet distinct shoegaze sound. Underneath a few of the tracks is a constant mumbling drone to keep you on edge and this quietly influential album should be valued alongside the rest of their impressive back catalogue. 

Flying Saucer Attack
Flying Saucer Attack

Flying Saucer Attack's debut was one of those records that pointed the way forward in terms of how albums could be comprised and sequence. Half blurry pop songs, half wandering instrumentals, it contains two tributes to the then totally obscure Popul Vuh and an unlikely cover of Suede's 'The Drowners'. It's notable how twee the pop songs are sounding now but back then they were dead scary. The mystique that surrounded the band had a lot do to with this...a perfectly executed shoegaze/noise concept.     

Flying Saucer Attack
Instrumentals 2015

The first release in fifteen years from Flying Saucer Attack sees David Pearce perform 15 new lo-fi tracks recorded at home. One to be listened to from beginning to end, this British space rock album resonates, drones and creates a stunning emotional arc from start to finish. Vinyl double LP or CD from Domino.

Fuxa
3 Field Rotation

Sold out - sorry!

Hood
Singles Compiled

Preposterous 59 track double CD of all the bands mid-era singles on a variety of labels such as Earworm and 555. Ranges wildly from lo-fi pop to electronica to field recordings to blissed out pastoralism. Contains 15 previously unreleased tracks.  A must for any discerning fan of the Wetherby based band.

Jessica Bailiff
Jessica Bailiff

The underrated Jessica Bailiff dropped her eponymous third LP through Kranky back in 2002. Across the album Bailiff comes through with the sort of cosmic ambient folk/rock style that other artists have got way more credit for than she has. For instance - the collaborative Animal Collective/Vashti Bunyan EP Prospect Hummer came out three years after Jessica Bailiff, yet people only seem to remember the latter nowadays. Strange. Either way, this is a great record that deserves a second chance.
