Weekly Update White Denim, Tunng, Autechre, Sleep, Interpol
Here we are again with all this week’s stuff. Choose from a wonderful collection of new vinyl from the likes of Autechre, Interpol, Tape Loop Orchestra, John T Gast and many more.
With our web expert and all round clever guy Nathon on ‘holiday’ in Northumberland it’s been left to all the, ahem, stupider members of staff to hold things together. We did consider shutting down the website and advertising our wares by waving bits of paper out of the window, but as we haven’t broke it or set fire to it let’s not worry about fixing it. We don’t know much but we know we love you...and we know a bit about the things out this week. Here goes...
