Pre order the début GOLDBLUME album right now!

PRE ORDER THE ALBUM HERE

Back in 2015, I put on Goldblume’s first gig. It was supporting Tellison at the Corner House in Cambridge. I’d known Tim the bassist from work and he’d mentioned he had a new band. Figuring it was easier to see them if I just put them on my own gig – as well as hoping they’d pull a decent amount of punters as it was their first show – I gave them this gig.

They were genuinely great.

They were far from perfect, but you could tell straight away that they had stacks of potential. They self-released their début EP – Real Nice – a few months later and, like that first gig, it was great but not the finished article. You knew the band had talent and just needed to hone themselves a bit and they’d be on fire.

Then they honed themselves a bit and were, in fact, on fire.

I saw them many times and watched them get better with every performance. When the time came for their second EP – 2017’s Go Figure – I was on board to release it on the label. I’d heard these songs live and wanted you to all hear them too.

Again, this EP was great but you knew they could be better still. The Fawning single from later in the year was proof of this as it was a step above the EPs. So, with planning started on the début album, could they keep getting better?

Yes.

Even line-up changes – drummer Grant left the band to be replaced by Bouquet of Dead Crow’s Neil, until a permanent substitute could be found – couldn’t quell the band’s creativity and the ten tracks crafted for HUSK are, yet again, a step above previous efforts.

The current line-up – drummer Matt, the aforementioned Tim, and vocalist/guitarist Jethro – are three of the most talented and passionate people I know, and I am genuinely honoured to call them my friends.

I love HUSK. I’ve listened to it countless times since the band sent me the finished audio. I can’t wait for you to hear it too.

PRE ORDER THE ALBUM HERE

The band celebrate the album’s 9th November release, with a gig the night before at the Portland Arms, Cambridge, with support from Birmingham’s Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam and Peterborough/Leeds-based FES.

Aaahh!!! Real Updates

As it’s a nice, sunny, day; I figured I’d sit here inside listening to Hobo Johnson and write y’all an update:

KRUMM086 – Tragical History Tour – Aphorisms – LP / CD
All formats are in stock and ready to go. All pre orders have been dealt with by Make-That-a-Take Records, but we’ll have them on sale as of tomorrow. The LP will also be “officially” available everywhere – Amazon, HMV, indies, etc – as of Friday 1st June.

KRUMM093 – Newts – I / II – Tape
Our original plans fell through due to an issue with the manufacturer. I’ve since made a new order with a new supplier but they’re also having delays. Newts have a Cambridge gig on May 11th and we’re aiming for that as the launch gig. Pre order a copy now.

KRUMM097 – Lay it on the Line – The Black Museum – CD
These have been ordered and are in production. There will be a “proper” release – through all channels such as Amazon, etc – on Friday 29th June but we’ll be posting our copies out in May. Pre order yours here.

KRUMM098 – Tim Holehouse vs. Malcolm Tent – Split – CD
I’m picking up my copies of this tonight so I’ll put them on the store tomorrow. The digital release will be next Friday, where it’ll be available on Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, etc.

KRUMM099 – Jake Martin – 1,555 Syllables That Mean Everything – CD
All ordered and in production. These will be out on Friday 4th May although we’ll probably have a pre order for the CD in the next week or so.

KRUMM100…
This is going to be sweet…

That should catch you all up on everything for now! Sorry for the delays.

Two new pre orders RIGHT NOW!

Yup. Two brand new pre orders (although one was meant to be out today…)

Firstly is a new cassette compilation from Cambridge/London noise-mongers Newts. I’ve loved them from the second I heard them, and am thrilled to be released a compilation of their two EPs (and two bonus tracks). We were hoping to have them ready for today but – due to a delay – we’re still waiting. In the meantime, pre order yours now. Limited to just 50 copies.

Secondly is the ever-prolific Tim Holehouse, who releases a brand new single in the form of a red 7″ flexi disc. This double-A side contains a new electric version of live favourite Good Morning, Mr Vampire and new track Ideza Jail (as well as a bonus download-only third track). Limited to just 250 so pre order one right away.

Pre order! The long awaited new MC iPod EP

I think I started work on this originally about eight years ago. After countless scrapped ideas and much frustration, the new solo recordings from MC iPod are now available to pre order!

  1. Where Ya Been, iPod? (feat. MC Lars & Dronic)
  2. Band People Problems
  3. #DIY (feat. Asher Baker, #heftyrealtalk & Dronic)
  4. Who Killed Mighty Ducks 4?

I’ve got some of my best friends on guest vocal duties, beat production from long-time iPod collaborators (Hgl, Sycamore Drive, Ankles) and the whole shebang mastered by Jethro from Goldblume. I couldn’t be happier with how it’s turned out; and now it’s your turn to hear it. Pre order your CD right now…

Pre order! Tim Holehouse / Kaleb Stewart (As Friends Rust) split

Yup. I said we still had 5 releases before the end of 2017, and here’s the pre-order for the second. Aaahh!!! stalwart Tim Holehouse is back, with a split album alongside Kaleb Stewart. You might be familiar with Kaleb from Grey Goose or seminal 90s/00s hardcore outfit As Friends Rust.

Pre order the new Heartwork album right now

It’s been a year since our successful Kickstarter campaign, and we’re now very close to the release of “Things I Wish I’d Said”, the début album from Heartwork.

Anyone who pledged will already have a download of the album, as well as a survey asking about things like t-shirt sizes.

If you didn’t pledge, you can pre order a copy direct from Dan. You’ll get yours around the release date of 19th May.

Once we’ve sorted out the pledgers and anyone who pre orders, I’ll have a bunch of copies for sale from here.

There will be an “official” release – i.e. with full distribution and available from Amazon, HMV, etc – but that won’t be for a few months so, for now, this is your only way to get a copy.

Again, thanks for your support and patience so far.
