FINALLY! New music from Deep Space alum The Fauns – this video is for the track “Seven Hours” from the upcoming “Lights” album on Invada on Dec 2nd. I should be getting a bunch of vinyl for the distro, so keep your eyes peeled.
The reviews of SULK’s “Graceless” lp are in…check out a few below!
Clank for Breakfast – “…their music feels passionate, played with fun, authentic, and filled with a pleasant dose of edges.”
Feed Me With Your Kiss – “…I am really really satisfied with listening to this album days on end.”
Your Music is Awful – “SULK ’s “Graceless” is one of the Albums of the Year.”
NME – 6/10
Vanayaland -“Overall, Graceless is a solid record and an intriguing debut, but much like their heroes from decades past…”
The Sound of Confusion – “The best thing to do is simply turn on, tune in and bliss-out. A scorcher.”
7 Bit Arcade -“Perhaps backward looking as this may seem, they have created a sound of their own…”
Digital Journal – “‘Graceless’ is emphatic, sweeping and balls-out brilliant (Where’s that thesaurus gone?) More importantly, it’s out now. You know what you have to do.” 9/10
Rock Freaks – 6/10
Aglet Eaters – “It’s also worth noting that, despite their FANTASTIC hair, I am praising SULK on the worth of their music. Graceless must be good.”
This Feeling – “By no means a tacky tribute, but quite the opposite instead – a brightly glowing homage.”
Planet Notion – “…Graceless is a near-perfect balance between what was going down 20 years ago and what is being created and reinvented today.”
45 Magazine – “Give it a try, this may well be your album for the summer of 2013…” 4.5/5
Hooting & Howling – “Indeed, if you asked me to describe this album in one word, I’d have to go for ‘BIG’…” 10/10
SULK lps are now in-house and getting packed up! thanks for all the orders so far. i’ll be posting the winner of the test press in a day or so.
here’s look at the finished product:
remember, blue is for our mailorder customers! snag one while you can!
that’s right, if you pre-order SULK‘s new album from us before next weekend (when the lps are scheduled to be here), you’ll be entered to win a test press! come next saturday (7/20), we’ll be drawing a random name and packing up a “Graceless” test press to send a long with the album to one lucky fan. good luck and, as always, thanks for the support!
you can pre-order the album here!
also, don’t forget to sign up for our new mailing list (click the tab to the right on your screen)!
hey folks, we’ve finally got SULK’s “Graceless” album up for pre-order. it will come housed in a heavy jacket, with printed inner sleeve and digital download card. if you’re not one for pre-orders, i am sure we’ll have plenty of color left once it’s in and shipping. you can check it out in the store!
i’ve also added some NEW CANYONS ‘everyone is dark’ lps to the distro…really great synthy/shoegaze/postpunk stuff. highly recommended!
looks like we’ve hit a bit of a snag with the SULK lps…we may have to have the plant redo the plates, as we didn’t think the tests sounded anywhere near what we wanted. it’s extremely frustrating, as we wanted to have this out at the beginning of july; now it looks more like towards the end, but we’ll keep you updated.
that said, our first sale of the summer is on the moonbell cd! you can pick one up all summer for just $6!
we’re also hoping to stock up the distro a bit more, and we’re currently waiting on the new merchandise lp and some other items. we’ll post when they’re up.
good news! The US vinyl version of SULK’s ‘GRACELESS’ album will be released on 7/2/13! but we should have it up on the site for sale sometime before that. and on nice, royal transparent blue for our awesome mailorder customers. keep an eye out on our twitter (@deepspacesounds) and/or facebook pages for more info!
hey folks, so we’re excited to announce that we’re going to be putting out a US vinyl version for the new SULK lp ‘GRACELESS!’ if you haven’t heard of these UK boys yet, it’s just a matter of time. if you’re a fan of the golden age of the madchester scene – stone roses, charlatans, happy mondays (or any late 80s/early 90s britpop really) – you’ll be in heaven. check out their new video for the song ‘FLOWERS’:
the UK album release is 4/15, and our version will be out sometime in june/july.
and if this wasn’t enough, we may have some more to announce soon…stay tuned! while you’re waiting, check out their other videos, too!
man, is this really my first “real” update of the new year? well, just when you thought we were probably dead, we’re back and hoping to have to new release news REALLY SOON – i think this year is going to be fantastic for us and we hope you’ll agree! anyway, i will update as soon as i can, so stay tuned!
folks – it’s that time of year where we shut down the ‘ole mothership and head out for a much needed break. anything ordered AFTER WED. DEC 19th WILL NOT ship until after the new year. so get those last minute orders in quick! thanks for supporting us this year and we’ll see you in 2013, hopefully with some great new releases in tow!
