Announcing Rozi Plain's new album What A Boost
We've long been admirers of the music of Rozi Plain here at Memphis towers and we're tickled pink to be announcing that we'll be releasing her brilliant new album 'What A Boost' on 5 April 2019. Check out first track Symmetrical below:
What a Boost is available to preorder on CD, glow in the dark vinyl and download from the Rozi Plain shop + lots of great indies here. LP orders from Rozi Plain's official shop will be signed.
Those indie shops that are part of the Dinked network also have a glow in the dark version with an exclusive signed and numbered sleeve designed Jon McNaught up for pre-order. Full list of those shops here.
The self-titled debut album from You Tell Me, aka Field Music's Peter Brewis and Admiral Fallow's Sarah Hayes is out today, and guess what? It's a truly wonderful record.
“A brilliant and original collaboration” ★★★★ MOJO "A folk-centric beauty" 8/10 UNCUT "Concocts such a spell with their debut that the journey will still delight and intoxicate." 8/10 Paste

barbarossa releases new piano version of 'cyclones'
Barbarossa a.k.a. James Mathé, purveyor of tender, emotively charged, electronically tinged chorales, returns with a stripped back piano led version of ‘Cyclone’, a highlight from his recent album ‘Lier’.
Mathé, along with collaborator Ghost Culture, revisited his back catalogue at his studio in Margate, UK, recording stripped back versions on his battered piano, glass of red at hand, candles burning. These intimate reworks will be released sporadically over the next few months whilst recording takes place for the next album.
