Here’s a Portuguese copy of Kate Bush’s Sat In Your Lap from 1981. It’s pretty standard, save for the Portuguese info on the rear sleeve. What’s peculiar about this release are the dead wax messages on both sides of the record. On the A-side “Kate Bush” is etched into the dead wax. On the B-side, “Valentim de Carvalho=EMI” is pressed into the runout section. This name appears on all Portuguese releases, as it was the Portuguese manufacturer. Anyway, it’s a fun and not often seen version. #katebush#satinyourlap#portuguese#portugal#deadwax#7inchvinyl#valentimdecarvalho#emi#vinyl#vinylcollection

Fast becoming my favourite album of 2018: Gorillaz, The Now Now.
More electro and upbeat than a lot of their previous stuff, The Now Now sees the Gorillaz in a more mature a sophisticated light. Whilst there’s less experimentation on here when compared to the classics ‘Plastic Beach’ and ‘Demon Days’, this album knows what it is, and doesn’t shy away from it.
Featuring elements of funk, soul, jazz, and synth-pop, the album has a limited number of collaborators (a stark contrast to 2017’s ‘Humanz’. Stand out tracks for me are the Humility (feat George Benson), Hollywood (feat Snoop Dogg + Jamie Principle), Lake Zurich, and Fire Flies.
What are your thoughts on The Now Now?
