Weekend Recap Featuring all this week's bestsellers, preorders, reviews and features
New feature articles on Constellation, a look-back at January's very best records, our Album of the Week...and we've even knocked 10% off a load of thing for you. Just don't call it a sale, cos we said we weren't doing that any more.
Don't miss out on...
- You won't have heard anything like this week's Album Of The Week unless you've already heard it...
- Every month we are either buying too many records or not selling enough records, depending on who you ask. Whatever, our lack of business acumen is your gain: 10% off.
- Loadsa preorders now hitting the site. Take a look at some of the best.
- One way or another we seem to write about Constellation every other week. No shame in that.
- Here are our favourite records from last month: Best Records of January 2019
- And in case you missed it last week, refresh your jaded ears with a blast of Soul Jazz. Trust us: this is some of the most interesting music you'll ever hear.
