Next show is on Sunday, and will be every Sunday, 9-10pm, 107.1fm (if you’re in Somerset) or online here.
This is the third release on the label. The debut Acidliner album came out on cassette last year through the New Atlantis imprint based out of Rye Wax in Peckham. It was in my top ten albums of last year. I played and played it. It sits somewhere between Autechre at their prettiest and Survive. When I thought about starting a label it was top of my want list. I’m pressing 100 copies and there’s gonna be 99 spare. The pre-sell will be up soon. Keep an eye out. (Please note: Reigns+Sweet Williams sold out on pre-order in 24 hours. Some records will make it to the shops. Act quick. Apologies to those who missed out. Follow this blog to keep in the loop).
For now, have a listen to Gideon Coe’s BBC 6Music show from last night: HERE. From 1:35 he plays Sweet Williams (WSR002) and goes straight into an Acidliner (WSR003) tune. If this track doesn’t swing you then nothing will. Half way through when the synth stabs kick in….God damn…..
So, there you go, WSR003 = Acidliner’s Red:1 album. Can’t wait for people to hear it.
Thankyou to Birthday Cake For Breakfast for this fine piece about the new label, and the new releases that are now up for presell. Go there to check out a new video by Reigns and a new tune by Sweet Williams. So very pleased to be releasing their albums on the label.
