The Bristol label announces three Record Store Day treats.
Yup, it’s that time of year again. The pressing plants are clogged to the rafters with covetable (and sometimes not-so-covetable) slabs of wax prettified with extra colours and spiffy artwork and bonus tracks and so many things you never knew you wanted.
Invada Records always do a good spread for April’s Record Store Day, and this year’s no different, leading with the debut EP from Power Glove, the mystery Australian duo so far known for their synth-tastic, ’80s-inspired score to video game Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. They return to Invada with EP1, four tracks of retro synth madness first released in 2013 but never before available on vinyl – and bright red vinyl, no less.
Film composer and solo artist Brian Reitzell’s score for 30 Days of Night, the 2007 vampire horror movie adapted from the comic book, is also coming to (blood red) vinyl for the first time in a double LP package, with new artwork by Marc Bessant using director David Slade’s photography.
Finally, Notts bare-bones punk firebrands Sleaford Mods have done a picture disc version of their five-track Tiswas EP, housed in a clear sleeve with a 12″ print of the duo.
All are limited to 1000 copies and available on Record Store Day, April 18 – get a taster of each of the three releases below. Also coming up on the label is Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury’s ace score for equally ace sci-fi thriller Ex Machina (we can now attest).
