The Minders have just kicked off a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the vinyl pressing of their next album titled “Psychedelic Blacktop”. The record will be their 5th full length LP and is due to be released June 21, 2020 on Space Cassette Records. The album is a return to their DIY roots, with most of the recording done at Martyn’s home studio on his half inch 8 track reel-to-reel machine. The band has already released several teaser tracks from the album over the past few months that you can find on all the regular digital music services. Be sure to secure your copy of the vinyl and help them reach their goal. The Kickstarter ends March 18th.
The High Water Marks have just re-issued their album “Polar” on vinyl LP for the first time. Originally released in 2007 on CD with Happy Happy Birthday to Me Records, the record was their 2nd release. The band is now based in Norway but we’ve got copies in our web shop for any fans in the US who want to avoid hefty international shipping costs!
Circulatory System + Elephant 6 are currently running a crowdfunding campaign to reissue their debut album record on vinyl for the first time ever. The 2001 double album has only been available on CD and download up to this point. The band hopes to finally release it in the vinyl format, with a beautiful gatefold sleeve. We haven’t reached the goal yet but there are still 2 weeks left on the campaign and you can pre-order a record or pick up some of the other cool, limited edition rewards by going to their Kickstarter page.
In anticipation of their next full length album (due to be released in early 2020), The Minders have released 2 brand new songs. “Let’s Go Driving” and “The Girl From Oklahoma” are both available on all digital platforms for streaming and downloads (Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, etc). And check their facebook page for regular updates about the record!
