New Way Home Album Release Party: 12 October

Critics on Mirrors: 

"Precise playing is complemented by a terrific mix that gives every instrument space while somehow still sounding dense and powerful." -

"Mirrors is a beautiful balance of heavy and ambient.  The soundscapes created by so many different guitar layers and other textures, counterbalanced with metal/hardcore aggression sets this release apart..." - NZRock

"the five piece hailing from Auckland have incorporated the perfect blend of delicate harmonics and unrelenting heaviness..." -

Mirrors is out now.

Look What We Found in Aisle 1

So there's some pretty decent stuff in our warehouse this week.  In Aisle 1* in particular.  See, that's where we stash the records.  And some DVDs and a bunch of stuff that belongs to those good sorts at Ode Records. But we'll save that business for another day. Whaddayareckon of this small selection:

Here we have some Tiny Ruins. A limited quantity of You Were Meant For Sea LPs going on sale next week.

And there are a few of the latest Om LP Advaitic Songs left right here.

Via our friends at Unwucht this lovingly restored and remastered 3rd 12" (Schwimmen in der See) in the Bilders/Bill Direen reissues series. Sold out elsewhere y'know.

These are shipping rather swiftly.  The xx LP Coexist is available in both your standard or deluxe gatefold styles. Each comes with the CD included.

Don't panic, there are more than two copies of Cat Power's Sun left. Deluxe. Includes limited edition 7" with bonus tracks. And a download coupon for your digital needs. 

*Here we must take a moment to acknowledge that this is the tidiest and most organised Aisle 1 has been since...ever.  Thanks to warehouseperson Andy. You rule.

Farewell to The Checks

Dear friends,

We have broken up.  
Thanks for all your love and support over the last 10 years.  We couldn't have asked for more from you.  
Take care of yourselves and each other.


The Checks

And we sadly say goodbye to The Checks. we've loved working with you crazy geniuses... Love the 3rd video too - glad we got to see that part of plan fulfilled!
