New Vinyl Update

This weeks update is all LPs.

First up is the new Daft Punk album, “Random Access Memories” on 2x180gram vinyl. Not sure if it is a classic just yet though!!

However, when it comes to classics, that is the best way to describe the Tall Ships debut “Everything Touching” – a really really great album, definitely in my top 5 for 2013!!!

Then it is the new Boxer Rebellion album “Promises”. The really underrated band have returned with another strong LP:

Finally for this update is newish LP from On An On “Give In”, I missed out on it when it came earlier in the year – but was lucky to pick a signed one up following their outdoor gig at the Republic Of Music’s courtyard as part of the Great Escape 2013:
