Record Store Day and The English Beat

Record Store Day Black Friday is today.

We celebrate the independent music stores that enhance our lives with the artists that inspire.

Today there are many special releases including the double vinyl LP, I Just Can’t Stop It by The English Beat. This is a limited edition on clear vinyl, 5000 copies only.

Included on this expanded rerelease are live versions of some of our favourite English Beat songs, a few broadcast live on WBCN, Boston from the Boston Opera House in 1982.

Listen here to the live version of “Twist & Crawl”.

Björk & Rosalía

Björk has just released a new song with Spanish singer Rosalía.

Oral” is her protest against Norwegian-owned commercial salmon farming operations on Iceland’s native ecosystems. The fjords are threatened due to parasitic parasite-ridden fish that are genetically different from Icelandic salmon.

“Opal” was written by Björk years ago but felt it was appropriate now.
