11 Dec

It’s Not Christmas Anymore – the new release from Allo Darlin’s Bill Botting, ably joined by an all star line up featuring Darren Hayman, Dave and Jonny from The Wave Pictures, Paul from Allo Darlin’/Tigercats and Owl & Mouse’s Hannah, is out now! We’ve a very limited, and very lovely, handmade cassette with download available from the Fika Recordings shop, or you can line it up on the stereo via Spotify, iTunes etc to soundtrack your Christmas this year. We’re a little bit in love with these 4 songs, and can’t wait to hear more from Bill backed up by this line up…

Bill Botting & The Two Drink Minimums

24 Nov

We’ve got a last minute addition to our Christmas release schedule! We’re dead excited to be bringing you a 4 song EP on cassette and download from Bill Botting & The Two Drink Minimums.

You’ll know Bill Botting as one half of Moustache Of Insanity, a quarter of Allo Darlin’ and a whole lot of awesomeness. He’s brought together a right old supergroup of chums to join him on It’s Not Christmas Anymore, joined by little sister Hannah Botting of Owl & Mouse, Paul Rains of Allo Darlin’ and Tigercats, Darren Hayman and two thirds of The Wave Pictures (Jonny Helm and Dave Tattersall).

We’re frantically getting everything together – if all goes to plan we’ll have copies to sell at this weekend’s Independent Label Market in Spitalfields ahead of the 11th of December release date. We’re only making 100 copies of this cassette, so don’t wait too long if you’re after a copy!

Acting-Wack

Bill’s no stranger to getting in to the festive spirit for us at Fika either – back in 2011 he contributed two tracks to our advent calendar.
Both “Mulled Wine” and “Acting Without Acting” are still free to download if you missed out…

Tullycraft – Lost In Light Rotation

12 Feb

2013 has been a bit quiet on the release front so far for Fika Recordings, but don’t panic, we’re kicking into gear to bring you loads of exciting new releases over the next few months. First up will be the brand new album from Tullycraft, their first in absolutely ages! We’ll be putting out a very limited (100 copies only) handmade cassette version of the album, towards the end of March. Fortuna Pop and Magik Marker Records are handling CD/LP duties in Europe and North America respectively.
It’s a stunner of an album; just the job to get this year off to a flying start.

So here’s the brand new video for the single, Lost In Light Rotation. Enjoy!
