Our new record ‘Come Closer Now’ is out next month, and here’s a list of songs for you to play (known otherwise as a playlist); this isn’t really a cross-reference of things the album sounds like, more just sort of stuff I/we (mostly I to be fair) enjoy that is worth hearing and gives some vague context. Some stuff here is included on the grounds of great lyrics (“I could drink a case of you, darling, and I would still be on my feet”), some on the grounds of solid riffin’ (Wrote For Luck) some on the grounds of great songwriting (The Electrician) or the achievement of what is commonly known as ‘vibez’ (The Rainbow) - to be honest some of it is just there to freak you out (Face on Breast)
We are incredibly excited to announce the release of Rope's sophomore LP, 'Come Closer Now' which will be released by Truthseeker on July 6th on vinyl and all digital platforms.
You can stream the first single, 'Exit Interview' on DIY Mag right now!
Once again, Rope chose to track the album entirely live with Lewis Johns at The Ranch Production House in Southampton in just three days during 2017.
Since the release of their debut album in 2016, Rope have expanded to become a 4-piece. The additional guitar now serves to add a greater detail and texture to the already nuanced and mesmerising songs that Rope have become known for.
After the first press sold out far quicker than we could have ever imagined, we are pleased to announce that Rope's debut album, 'Manteision Bodolaeth' will be reissued on July 6th.
On the first press we decided to try and keep costs at a minimum, and so a number of elements were done by hand - I printed and cut to size every lyric sheet at my work. With this second press we have opted to get everything done professionally and with higher quality materials. For collectors there is an easily discernible difference between both the packaging on both pressings, as well as the vinyl now having a new colour way which better reflects the colours on the artwork.
We are proud to present Tor's latest full length, ‘Too Happy’ which will be released on vinyl and all digital platforms on May 25th. You can listen to a single from the album on our Bandcamp right now, and another track over at Punktastic.
The opening track on the cassette is titled 'Human Resources' and is taken from Rope's forthcoming sophomore studio LP, 'Come Closer Now' which is out on Truthseeker later in 2018. The second track, 'The Common Cold' is exclusive to this release.
Both tracks on this release were recorded live by Thomas Hill at The Green Door Store in Brighton, UK.
Haunts are a collective of musicians based in the south east of England which began life as a solo venture for ex-Human Future guitarist, Phillip Short. Over the course of recording this first EP, Phillip sought help from a range of musicians including some former Human Future members, most notably Kurt Phillips on drums and bassist Luke Booth who appears on the opening track 'Creep Pulse'.
A Lack Of Empathy's release is paired with a music video for 'Creep Pulse' which is made up of slide film being projected on various textured surfaces. This technique was also used to create Joe Page's artwork, and as a bonus for anyone who purchases a copy of the CD, they will be sent a unique slide that was used in the making of the artwork and music video.
