All A High
The EP is here, and will be the last major release of the year from us at ADSRecords. It’s been a mad year for new music, and The High Points’ new release Instant Love is a perfect reminder of that - packed full of indie funk energy, it perfectly preserves the 2018 heatwave under which it was recorded. And we could all do with some of that right now.
Exploring the spectrum of energy this month from the full-on Feral Family to the serene drift of Francis Harris, and hooky refrains from Sole to walk the ground between - also seeing the return of long-missing genres punk rock and electro-ambient. In the news, it’s a month of new releases and old anniversaries as we wind it around towards Christmas.
It’s been too long since we’ve played anything properly raucous. So enjoy It’s All Fake from Sheffield punk rock factory Feral Family. It seethes with apathy wrapped in a delicious aggression. If you missed their Paris tearup on the 26th, they’ll be at the o2 Academy supporting SHEAFS on the 16th this month, and you’ll be able to catch sight of their new bassist.
Sole headed up our page recently with As I Am - video of the month for October. If you watched it, you already know her charismatic style and open-hearted lyrics, but Little Life isn’t just more of the same. Where As I Am is folky, Little Life leans in a rockier direction, deftly hilighting the more outward-looking theme of the song. It’s a perfect example of the range of her latest album, also titled As I Am.
Not for the trebly of headphone this one, At First A Wide Space makes full use of bass textures to found its sound. Francis, a true club scene veteran has released over a hundred records under different monikers, but has released his avante-garde electronic LP Trivial Occupations under his own name, showing something more reflective and personal, working in a genre that invites your mind out rather than forcing itself in.
New Videos and Anniversaries
We like to remind you once in a while of our huge back-catalogue of released and featured music - this month is the 4 year anniversaries of two early ADSRecords releases, ambi-electro Independent of Time (Alex Dale-Staples) and Inner City Postcard (Jacob Hallerstrom) respectively. If new is your thing though, Swedish singer-songwriter Valle Hope is just releasing his video to insanely catchy song Trying My Best...
