Taking the Latitudes series to another level, we are delighted to unveil our new super deluxe vinyl packaging which will debut with the release of Sylvester Anfang II’s session on 13th February.
The Flemish purveyors of psyche-folk laid down their 35 minutes of free-style rock jams in our humble studios in November 2010. These five tracks were extracted from a three-hour jam session; a feat achievable by having a handful of ideas and a day to explore the deepest recesses of the band’s sound. And the result? Kaleidoscopic noise, droning mantras and freak-folk joy that sweeps you off your feet and leaves you hovering in the ether. With Sylvester Anfang firmly embracing Latitudes’s historical spirit of improvisation and experimentation, it is quite fitting that they should lead away with our new vinyl packaging.
The new sleeve is in two parts and is following the same gorgeous packaging concept created by art director Stephen O’Malley for the CD. The vinyl package now includes a die cut sleeve “frame” with a card insert screen printed with the same design as the CD. Also included is a two sided insert with liner notes, recording details and a band photo.
Sylvester Anfang II’s session will be released on CD and 180g white vinyl with hand numbered sleeves, 500 copies of each format. So you’ve been warned, if you happen to be the 501st Latitudes vinyl lover…
The anarcho-punk hardcore band Subhumans continue to blast their way through the never ending tour. They press on with several UK shows lined up for you over the next few months. Following the reissue of Subhumans’ back catalogue, remastered from original analogue master tapes, their live presence is as strong as ever stamping in your memory as one of the best original UK punk bands.
Definitely the record-holder for the longest-incubated Latitudes session to date, Dälek’s epic 40-minute session was recorded in 2005 and finally released on CD in June of this year. Now the vinyl is finally ready and so the cycle is complete. Pressed in an edition of 1000 with 300 in translucent purple and 700 on black wax, the release is now available to pre-order from our web shop, and will be shipping out on Monday, 28th November.
This session will also be entitled to another memorable bit of trivia – it will be the last vinyl release to be packaged in the original black & white “disco bag” sleeves. We are awaiting delivery of a radically redesigned new vinyl sleeve, which will be unveiled in our next two session releases – Sylvester Anfang and The Entrance Band.
