Days Are Gone (Deluxe Edition)
"Days Are Gone" is the debut album from Haim, released through Polydor Records.
Following a series of LA based studio sessions with producers Ariel Rechtsaid (Major Lazer, Vampire Weekend, Usher) and James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Florence & The Machine, Simian Mobile Disco), San Fernando Valley sisters HAIM have emphatically taken all the strengths of their live shows and transformed their songs into nuggets of golden pop.
Beginning the year as the BBC Sound of 2013 winners, off the back of two limited edition EPs and a handful of sold-out UK live dates, HAIM holed themselves up in the studio and spent the next few months perfecting a record that is arguably one of the most hotly anticipated in years. It's a record that the band refused to let go of until they were 100% confident with it, and is all the stronger for their patience.
"Days Are Gone" is a record that wrestles with that early live pot
A Thousand Mistakes (150g Vinyl)
After five albums, 10 years of touring and a deserved break for a rest and personal projects, The Drones present this special double LP (no CD!), "a new album of old songs". Huh? Yes, this recording is a collection of old songs re-recorded as they are seen by their authors today, or as they were expected to be back in the day. This revision of rarely-played tracks is a new introduction to the darker side of this great Australian band, one who has built (and continues building) a huge following both here and overseas. It's being released in a limited edition of only 500 copies for the whole world, and comes housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve.
