🔩 Team Picture 'The Menace Of Mechanical Music'🔩
🔩 OUT NOW 🔩
Really excited to finally share the debut Team Picture record.
In my opinion, from the music to the artwork, this record is nothing short of a masterpiece + the band are on a different planet. Really proud to work with them. I hope you find as much joy in it as I do. We've released it on 2 different vinyl versions, a 2-colour split available from us + an ecomix which is exclusive to independent record stores (links below).
The ecomix ones are made using leftover wax so are totally random in colour, so far we've found a marbled gun-metal grey, a spotted turquoise & a swirling earthy brown. Who knows what else is in there! Available from Norman Records, Jumbo Records, Vinyl Tap Records + Rough Trade.
Join the band, me, producer Matthew Peel & BBC Music Introducing in West Yorkshire presenter Emily Pilbeam at (a virtual) Brudenell Social Club for an album listening party. There'll be a Q&A, exclusive live videos & live illustrations from Louis Byrne Illustration. 8pm tonight on Facebook + YouTube;

OUR NEW MUSIC PLAYLIST
The reason we started this label was to support acts we love & to regularly find new music. This hasn't changed & although we can't work with everyone we want to, we still want to share what we like. Twice each month we pick a bunch of songs we love & stick them in our 'CLUE-NEY TUNES' playlist. At the end of the 2 weeks we wipe it & start again. Have a listen and if you like it, follow it & return to it every fortnight for a new bunch of tunes we think are ace.
GRAB YOURSELF A LUCKY BAG
Remember parties when you were a kid where you'd run about to Barbie Girl by Aqua & there'd be a buffet. And as you were leaving they gave you a lucky bag with a balloon & toy & sweets and all that??? Or them lucky bags where you'd get a load of toys & some crayons & a lolly??? Class eh???
Well we've got some new tote bags & instead of just saying "We've got some new tote bags" we're saying "Get yourself a lucky bag".
