check out the new sun glitters video for 'it takes me' ...

Sun Glitters - It takes me from Victor Ferreira / Sun Glitters on Vimeo

Sun Glitters returns with a brand new video for ‘it takes me’, the standout track from last year’s exuberant ‘high’ EP.
An intense Mediterranean anthem that should be broken apart and examined by budding producers, ‘it takes me’ has the ability to capture and sweep you along immediately.
Marrying Burial inspired vocals to Flying Lotus influenced beats wrapped up in rousing Slowdive melodies, the hazily lush ‘high EP’ is an entire summer season shoegazing out over 4 melodic songs.
Title track ‘high’ sets things in motion, ebbing and flowing into colourful refrain, while ‘they don’t want to let you know’ bounces and sways, with its eerily atmospheric vocal manipulations offset against alluring blissful beats.
The final song is a remix of ‘it takes me’ by the sensational Jack Colleran AKA MMOTHS. 
His fresh and new approach to the field of production has had blogs buzzing with excitement the world over.
We are down to our final 100 copies of the 12”.
Get it before it’s too late because the EP will not be made available on vinyl again.

jape to release new single in june!

good news folks! jape follow the release of last year’s critically acclaimed album ocean of frequency with a new single please don’t turn the record off / its shadow won’t make noise, out june 4th.

infused with a jubilant, hook-laden melody and a buoyant charm, please don’t turn the record off quickly burrows its way into your consciousness. both sincere and danceable, it’s a foil to the subtler shades present on the rest of ocean of frequency.

its shadow won’t make noise is a languid and deep number, with delicate, acoustic plucking, maintaining a fine line between modern pop craft and moodier shades of refined melancholy. 

jape, who has been touring extensively around the globe, recently picked up the 2011 choice music prize for album of the year. they are the first act ever to have won the award twice.

richard egan and co will be heading to the uk for a clutch of shows, including two key festival dates:

may

6th – london - camden crawl / the cuban bar:  6.30pm

12th - brighton - the great escape / mfi showcase: 3.30pm + rom showcase.

14th – london lexington w. my best fiend

record store day ...

it's hard to believe that it's been six months since we released the glorious ocean of frequency by jape. it has been a beautiful rollercoaster of a journey since that day in september, culminating in victory at the 2011 choice music prize. we haven't been the only ones on a massive trip over the same duration. our dear friend, gib, opened elastic witch on the same day, and it warms our heart to know that ocean of frequency is still his biggest seller. 

so to celebrate all of this we thought it would make sense to run an exclusive offer with elastic witch just for record store day: you can pop in and pick up the jape lp for €11.99, the cd for €7.49, or the sun glitters ep (featuring a mmoths remix) for €4.99 ... while stocks last. 
thanks to everyone who has supported our label, our beautiful bands, and this amazing record store so far.
