UPDATE: The record pressing gods have frowned upon us! Looks like we’ll have the records will now make their way to stores in the second week of August. We’re told they’re imminent, though!
Since we started the label, every record (except for our two early Anthony Naples releases) has been from a different artist. This year we’re planning to release music from some artists we’ve already featured, and we’re starting that push with General Ludd and Archie Pelago. Both of their releases are coming out this Friday. (We hope. Check below for a note about pressing plant delays.)
The first, which you can preview above, is from Archie Pelago, who did the second Mister Saturday Night Records release. They’re a trio made up of a cellist, trumpet player and saxophonist; and all of them works the knobs. The A Side, Clammy Customer, takes dozens of twists and turns, weaving in vocals by the always excellent Gabriel Garzon-Montano; and the B Side, Madame Suede Nightshade, was apparently made with us in mind (check the initials). Both sides are tried and tested on our dancefloor and cut at 45rpm for maximum oomph.
The second, which you can preview below, is by General Ludd, a pair of guys based in Glasgow (though one is originally from New Jersey, and the other is originally from Canterbury). This record is a more left field turn than their first, but, we can assure you, both tracks will break discerning dancefloors wide open.
Both EPs are due out Friday, July 24th, though we never know exactly when they’ll arrive because of the current state of affairs in the record pressing world. They’ll be here soon enough, though, and you can immediately pre-order them on the Mister Store. Remember that you get free digital downloads of the tracks on the album if you pre-order the physical copies, and we ship you the physical copies as soon as we have them in stock.
