Latest news updates 11/08/10


So then – things have been insane of late over here so for those of you that might have missed out heres a quick round up of everything that has been happening of later over here.

First up Uno Mollers new album and EP (“Songs from my beautiful colourball” and “how to lead you home ep” respectively) have been out for a few weeks now and we’ve been enjoying your feedback to them both. Kind words have been coming in from the likes of Punktastic, Buried by the buzz, Acuvi and All Scandinavian and more have been promised in the coming weeks. You can name your price and download the album right about now over at Bandcamp.

Next up we are just finishing off the final details on a new compilation we are releasing this autumn. This isn’t something we’ve done before but we’re super excited about this little project and the tracklisting contains gems including: Solvor Vermeer, The Little Hands of Asphalt, Cold Mailman, Waking Life, Youth Pictures of Florence Henderson, Uno Moller, I See Horses, Escapists, My First Tooth, Stylus Boy, Tiny Cinema and The Son(s). Keep your eyes peeled for more on this very soon.

We also went and started a new weekly records club by way of our facebook page. How this works is if you “like” our page ( we will send out a free track to you once a week. We’ve already had three blinders from Team Me, Sweet Sweet Moon and Jenny & Tyler so come get involved and get your mitts on all this free tuneage.

On a random sidenote Beccy from Sharks Took The Rest is currently undertaking a songwriting challenge to write a new song every day. Head on over to her blog to see how she is getting on (there are some lovely moments in there already).

The awesome Oya festival takes place this week over in Oslo and a bunch of our acts and friends are playing shows at or around the festival. The best way of keeping up to date is to check out this rather useful post courtesy of Endre @ Spoon Train which collates most of the pertinent info.

And finally to let you in on a little secret – the next installment of our Full Stop To Bad Pop campaign will be MONZANO – the very band that spawned The Little Hands of Asphalt and one of the finest indie pop bands out of Scandinavia. We’re super excited to be putting this ep out over here in the UK so we hope you like it too.

For now I think that’s about all. To sign off here’s a sneak preview of a couple of tracks from the new compilation.

Much Love
