Pink Floyd in Mono, New Big Thief, and The Bob-Man Signs Off For The Final Time

Hi folks,
Hope you are keeping safe and well..
Bob-Man here for the final time.

Last shift for the MZ HQ today. Emotional stuff! 
Been a funny turn of the year with being out for 10 days with Covid, feel like i’ve barely been in the siopa, but the big moving day now confirmed for Friday week.
Will be in the shop in person once or twice more between now and then to pick up a few LPs, so hopefully will catch a few of ye before I go. Will be on the opposite side of the counter, better learn how to start slagging the boss-man! Any tips sure send ’em my way!!

A huge, heartfelt thank you to all of you who call in to the shop, phone in, email in, tweet in, everyone! I’ve made some great friends throughout the years, thank you for the laughs, chats, support, slagging, banter and friendship. I’ve been so lucky to have made some amazing memories in the last 10 years, will miss it all very much!

Boss-Man, Shaney Boi and Young Adam, keep it lit!

Hopefully get to see some of you all before I fly off x

The main week of focus for today is releases for February 4th.

Integral for the 4th of Feb have the new album by BLACK COUNTRY, NEW ROAD. Went back listening a lot to the debut record again in the last few weeks. For myself, it’s the standout album of the year for me for 2021. Only 6 tracks, but 40 minutes of class. So fierce excited for this new record ‘Ants From Up There’. Few formats on this, there is a CDDeluxe 2CD with bonus live showStandard VinylLimited Exclusive Blue Vinyl, and a Deluxe 4LP Set which has the live show also. Signed vinyl sold out now i’m afraid.

Another really nice release from Integral for Feb 4th is the compilation release from THE DIVINE COMEDY ‘Charmed Life : The Best Of The Divine Comedy’. Few formats on this, including 2CDDeluxe 3CD with a bonus disc of extra material, a Standard Vinyl, and a Limited Edition Coloured Vinyl press.

Moving onto down the line bits for the week. Shaney Boi was giving me a hand today with the website so we’ve got through a good bit of new pre-orders. Will rattle them off fairly quickly!

Warner have a lovely reissue of PINK FLOYD’s 1967 debut LP ‘Piper At The Gates Of Dawn’, pressed as a limited mono vinyl, and at a very decent price it must be said. Cracking album, I love the Syd era myself I must say!

JOHNNY MARR’s new collection of EP’s ‘Fever Dreams Pts. 1-4’ is getting a release as a CDVinyl or Indies Exclusive Turquoise Vinyl. We struggled to get our lámha on these EP’s as they were coming out, so thankfully they are getting released all together as an album. This one is coming in February via BMG / Warner.

ALODUS HARDING is back with her new album ‘Warm Chris’, released via 4AD in March. This is the follow up to ‘Designer’ from 2019 which was a favourite in the shop. CD or Standard Black Vinyl for this one, allocated on the vinyl so if interested website or let us know ASAP best way, may be gone by the time March comes around.

Speaking of favourites in the shop, the brilliant THE DELINES are back with a brand new album ‘The Sea Drift’, due for release on CD or Vinyl on February 11th. The Oregan based groups previous outing ‘The Imperial’ from 2019 was a firm favourite with both customers and ourselves, so looking forward to hearing this! Here is new single ‘Kid Codeine’

Right last few bits so for down the line. Said i’d rattle through them and feel i’m ranting through them. We have a very small allocation of the new ARAB STRAP new 7” ‘Aphelion’, these are gonna be gone fairly fast so through the website again is safest, as emails may be missed, only a small few landing in. This is due March 4th. Warner have a vinyl reissue of ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN’s compilation LP ‘Songs To Learn To Sing’ due for release on February 18th. Alex Lifeson, guitarist of Rush, has a new project entitled ENVY OF NONE coming on April 8th via KScope. Quite an industrial feel to it. Here is lead single ‘Liar’

Finally for down the line releases for this week, we will have CD copies of 17 year old Dublin busker / YouTuber SAIBH SKELLY’s debut EP ‘Undercover Heartbreak’, being released on Rubyworks. This one is due for release on April 8th.

Lastly for mise for this week folks is Integral for February 11th, and a few nice ones again. The new BIG THIEF album ‘Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You’. Not many left to sell here, the indies vinyl is fully sold out, and only 3 copies of the standard vinyl left, so if interested fastest fingers first here may be safest option. CD due in also on this.

There is a lovely 15th Anniversary reissue of MIDLAKE’s class album ‘Trials Of Van Occupanther’ pressed on gold vinyl for release on Feb 11th, as well as a reissue of SPOON’s 10th album ‘Lucifer On The Sofa’. This one is coming on CDVinyl or Indies Only Vinyl. Very very tight allocation on the Indies Only Vinyl (only 1 to sell sorry), so up on the site now and fastest fingers first again on it, sorry.

FOXES new album ‘The Kick’ is being released on the 11th of Feb as a Deluxe CD (Vinyl not released on this one until April 8th), and finally there is a new studio album from Danish composer and producer TRENTMOLLER entitled ‘Memoria’ coming as a 2LP via In My Room.
