New Releases: NBR007 – SPARKLE BLOOD – Denim Tape & NBR008 – HIGH/LOW – Autospy

Hey hey!

We’ve got two new releases for January 2016 that you can pre-order now.

The first is Lethbridge’s favourite husband and wife duo: SPARKLE BLOOD. This pop-rock gem will make your ears (and heart) burst with reverb-soaked songs of love and the beach. You can pre-order the tape (in a lovely silver sparkle finish) and stream the first track, Seafoam Green here: The album drops January 16th, where you pick up a copy and catch them performing (along with betterhalf and Royal Chinet) at Norwegian Blue’s Tag-Team Fest at the Owl Acoustic Lounge.

Second, in collaboration with Instereo Records, is the cassette version of HIGH/LOW‘s 2nd album Autospy. If you haven’t heard of these Essex rockers, they’re an amazing UK fuzz-rock band (which is right up our alley here at NBHQ.) This album blends loud guitars, bass fuzz, harmonies, and propulsive drumming into a delicious alt-rock smoothie. Fans of Foo Fighters, Nada Surf, Supergrass and Ash may find themselves transported back to their childhood bedrooms.

The album drops January 29, 2016 but you can pre-order the album and download the first single Mould. Your friends at NBR have you covered on the tape side, but if CDs and vinyl are more your jam, you can find it here:
