The Pineapple Thief

Your Wilderness (various formats pre-order)


The Pineapple Thief's 2016 release Your Wilderness takes TPT away from Magnolia's more 'pop' orientated production and sees Bruce Soord draw inspiration from his Progressive roots.

For the first time, The Pineapple Thief has brought in several special guest performers. Alongside Gavin Harrison (who has gifted some typically brilliant drum parts that have taken TPT into fresh territory) and a four-piece choir, Geoffrey Richardson (Caravan) arranged and recorded string sections, Darran Charles (Godsticks) contributed additional electric guitar work, and Supertramp's John Helliwell performs some beautiful clarinet parts that bring the album to a poignant close.

Available on cd, 180g vinyl (with download code), and as a deluxe hardback 2cd/dvd-av edition featuring a 44 page book (the bonus cd features a single 40 minute Progressive/Ambient piece).

All pre-orders come with a signed postcard.

Pre-order for 12th August release.

Starless

Starless (cd / vinyl pre-orders)


Starless is the lushly orchestrated brainchild of Paul McGeechan (Love & Money). An epic album - widescreen in scope and ambition - Starless features collaborators such as Paul Buchanan (The Blue Nile), Karen Matheson (Capercaillie) and Chris Thomson (The Bathers).

McGeechan recorded with the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and the result is an emotionally charged and atmospheric set of songs with references including Ennio Morricone, Craig Armstrong, The Cocteau Twins, Peter Gabriel and David Sylvian.

Available as LP with CD and a CD in a 6 page digipak with a 12-page booklet.

Pre-order for 3rd June shipping.

Zombie Picnic

A Suburb of Earth (cd pre-order)


A Suburb of Earth is the debut album from Irish band Zombie Picnic.

Containing four sprawling and expansive instrumental compositions set against a backdrop of soundscapes that take you from the beat poets of 1950's America to the sci-fi futurescapes of Arthur C. Clarke, Zombie Picnic's guitar-driven sound sometimes recalls the exploratory post-Psychedelia of Pink Floyd.

Only available as a limited run of 100 hand-numbered discs in cardboard digipak cases, we have few copies in stock.

Pre-order for June 10th shipping.


Big Big Train

Folklore


An epic progressive rock tour de force, BBT's tenth studio album is its most ambitious yet. Featuring an eight piece band and brass quintet - augmented by a string quartet - the album provides a superb showcase for David Longdon's emotional vocals and the band's dramatic extended compositions.

Available as a CD in digipak (with 22 page booklet) and a double 180g vinyl edition in gatefold cover with download code.
