Now available for pre-order in our lovely shop is the utterly devine session recently laid down for Latitudes by Chelsea Wolfe and band. And what a supremely charming bunch of people they were to have as guests.
Chelsea and her band brought a unique personal take to the songs of the one and only Rudimentary Peni for this session, and it’s truly an extraordinary performance that we are delighted to bring to you.
Chelsea Wolfe is one of those artists who presents an environment rather than a show or an album – a tangible world to step into. On first being tipped off to her work, it was the marriage of visuals and Continue reading

Now after eight acclaimed full-length albums, the band that often dabbles in an eclectic range of side projects have regrouped for another stormer in our very own Southern Studios.
