Lived Here Before from Math and Physics Club

3 Nov

Following on from last year’s (long since sold out) 10 year retrospective from Math and Physics Club, we’re chuffed to announce they’ll be releasing their fourth studio album Lived Here Before in January 2018. We’ll be working alongside our good friends at Matinee Recordings for this one, and we’ll have a heavyweight blue 12″ vinyl version ready for you in the new year. But in case that’s too long to wait, there’s a digital single from the album out today too. All the Mains are Down is available from all the usual outlets, and you can pre-order the LP from our shop now.

We’ve been very excited to work with our new friends Math and Physics Club and our old friends at Matinee Recordings on this brand new compilation, gathering together 16 b-sides, rarities and unreleased treats from the band, all on vinyl for the very first time. Pre-orders have been brisk so we’ve only a handful of copies of this left, so don’t hang around if you’re keen to get a copy.
If you’re a MAPC fan in the USA and are hankering over a copy of the gatefold vinyl, ask your local record store to order you a copy in – RedEye are distributing it outside Europe so point them in the right direction! Matinee are looking after the CD version – we’re hoping to get a few copies to the UK in time for Indietracks, otherwise you can order it directly from them here.

“this collection of Math and Physics Club’s earliest work and some choice rarities works as a reminder of how good they were, how at their best they actually came quite close to being the next Lucksmiths or B&S”
All Music

“So far this is easily the best compilation album of the year and quite possibility the only one you’ll need in 2016.”
Pennyblack Music

“there’s something stirring and anthemic in the best of these sweetly melodic, heartfelt and life-affirming songs that keeps you hooked on every word and chord change. It’s pop without cynicism, familiar in its sound but attractive all the same”
Sounds XP

“Although it isn’t billed as a greatest hits album, it comes close to serving as one and should become a favorite album for old and new fans alike. I’ve had it on repeat for several days now, and it is like having a welcome old friend drop in for an extended stay.”
When You Motor Away

“this is your chance to fall in love with one of the greatest bands you might have overlooked”

Math and Physics Club – In This Together

1 Jun

It’s an absolute pleasure to announce that we’re releasing In This Together, a compilation of EPs, b-sides and rarities from Math and Physics Club. It’s the first time on vinyl for all of these tracks, and we’ve rolled the boat out to make it something truly special: heavyweight cream 12″ vinyl wrapped up in a lovely gatefold sleeve, crammed full of release notes, credits and some wonderful liner notes from Tullycraft’s Sean Tollefson.

Longtime fans know that Math and Physics Club have never been ones to stash away their lesser material on EPs and b-sides. Some would argue that many of their best songs over the past decade have appeared on exclusive EPs and vinyl-only singles, which is why this collection of non-album tracks plays like one of the band’s finest full length albums, and works equally well for completists and as a starting point for new fans.

The songs here are carefully presented in reverse chronological order, starting with the stunning new track “Coastal California, 1985” that finds the band still in fine form with its chiming guitars and swelling harmonies. Side one continues without missing a beat, winding through several unreleased and hard-to-find tracks from recent years, including a soft and sweet acoustic arrangement of “Do You Keep a Diary” that turns the tables on the electropop version that appeared on their 2007 EP.

Side two features their beloved and previously out-of-print first two EPs, with the classic jangle of “Movie Ending Romance” kicking off a relentlessly cracking set of pop that, when presented together this way, serves to highlight the band’s remarkable first year.

You can pre-order the vinyl from us now – we’ll be shipping these out shortly to ensure you get your copy by the release date on the 24th of June. If CDs are more your bag, then you’re in luck too: our friends over at Matinee Recordings are putting the CD out from the USA – pre-order that from Matinee here.
