- Delight in this week’s hand-picked pre-orders list.
- Pre-order: Joy Division ‘Unknown Pleasures’ 40th anniversary re-press.
Another one of those four day weeks we’re getting a lot of around here so we are mad busy trying to squeeze five days into four. Plenty of boxes have just arrived which we are presuming contain the records outlined below.
- That Puce Mary LP is down again on the list to be out this week but seeing as though we’ve been waiting for it since the beginning of time itself I wouldn’t get too excited.
- Steam voiced long term electronic pop songwriter Maps is back.
- Super Swedes Death & Vanilla peddle more of their Norman Records customer friendly blend of psych and electronica.
- 104 year old reggae mainstay Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry ...or Scratch Lee Perry as Damon Albarn once called him.
- Mac De Marco releases a few things he cobbled together in January.
- Pop boffin Holly Herndon. All pre-orders will go into a hat to win a test pressing, or two tickets to see her live at the Barbican.
- Future legendary hip-hop trio Mahatma X give us more Mobtown Suite.
- Clinic issue their Bernard Manning inspired Wheeltappers and Shunters.
- Greys still make racket but like everybody else they are growing old.

- Crybaby songster (we say that simply because it pisses him off so much) James Blake.
- Efrim Manuel Menuck & Kevin Doria. Godspeed and Growing chaps hook up.
- Slimmed down no wave three piece Nots.

- Dollboy’s Oliver Cherer began his latest album in 1984.
- Nu-house sensation Peggy Gou.

- The Brian Jonestown Massacre are not really a druggy band.
- Conjure up images of plastic bags blowing around with the American Beauty soundtrack.
- A triumvirate of classic indie pop re-issued on 7” from Wedding Present, the Wake and most excitingly perhaps the Servants.
- Everything New In?
- Even more pre-orders?
- All our (many, many) re-stocks?
- What about our Forever Sale?
Back on Thursday.
