to the home of Memphis Industries, a london based record label of repute.
For those of you who are unaware, on Monday night our distributor’s warehouse was burned down, taking with it the stock of many fine indie labels great and small. With around 90% of our stock having been warehoused there, this obviously has implications for us in the short term. What we can say is that we will be repressing and getting our physical distribution in the UK and Eire back up and running as soon as is humanly possible.
In the meantime, what stock we have left is available for sale at our online store, and of course all our catalogue is still available digitally. Now would be a really good time to fill in those gaps in your Field Music collection, or get the Dutch Uncles album you always meant to buy.
Mainly, as Londoners born and bred, we wanted to say that it is a massively sad to see what is happening in our city, and our hearts go out to all the people who have lost homes and livelihoods in the course of the last three nights.

Pitchfork (Cymbals Eat Guitar’s biggest fans) have today premiered the first single from CEG’s upcoming album ‘Lenses Alien’.
Rifle Eyesight (proper name), clocks in at a mammoth 8 minutes 30 and exemplifies Cymbal Eat Guitars’ genius flair for the load/quiet dynamic. It strikes a balance between the archaic and the inviting and is as much a document of doubts and contradictions as of irreverent joy.
We are delighted to announce the signing of Brooklyn’s latest and greatest, Milagres (the Portuguese word for miracles fact fans). The album “Glowing Mouth” is due for an October release in the UK and Europe, followed by November touring. Check here to sample the stunningly beautiful title track ‘Glowing Mouth’:
