Black Velvet promos

We've just taken delivery (a few minutes ago) of the Distractions' Black Velvet promo CDs. Advance orders will start shipping later today (Thursday 26/8) or tomorrow. Thanks to everyone who has supported us by pre-ordering.

N.B. [Thursday evening] We have posted out the first batch of Distractions promos to the people who placed the earliest orders and we should have the rest in the post tomorrow and/or Saturday.

Further N.B. [Saturday morning] All advance orders for the Black Velvet EP have now been posted out. Please note that Monday (30/8) is a Bank Holiday in the UK - we tried to get as many of the international orders as possible out on Thursday afternoon, so that hopefully they'll've left the UK before the holiday. Anyway, thanks again to everyone who's already ordered and if you haven't then orders placed over the weekend will go out either today (Saturday) or Tuesday.

The Distractions - Black Velvet EP - Orders being taken now

Just a note to say that we're now accepting orders for the promo CD version of The Distractions' Black Velvet EP - or you can buy the digital version if you prefer. There's also a special offer on the promo versions of this together with The Granite Shore's Flood of fortune.
We expect to have the promo CDs next week sometime but if you order now you'll get a link to free MP3s sent out pretty much instantly.

We've just uploaded audio of the three tracks on the forthcoming Distractions EP. "Black Velvet", "Still It Doesn't Ring" and "If You Were Mine". We will shortly start taking orders for the limited promo CDs (which, as always, will come with free MP3s delivered immediately) and the digital EP. Watch this space...

Wild Swans Album Preview

The Wild Swans have sent us a couple of rough mixes of tracks from their forthcoming album The Coldest Winter For A Hundred Years, which we hope to release in early 2011. Underwater has been heard on Janice Long's BBC Radio 2 radio show on a couple of occasions but the other, with the working title of Falling To Bits is making its debut here.

You can listen to the two tracks by clicking here and then on the titles on the preview page.

We should stress that these are work-in-progress mixes, not the finished article, but they do give a very good idea of what an astonishing record this is shaping up to be.
