Seeing as we’ve been pretty absent over the past month, it’s fair to say this past week has been a pretty exciting one. Not only did it see the physical release of our second single, Melodica, Melody & Me’s ‘Piece Me Back Together’, and the posting of our ‘from us to you’ mixtape, we also tried the MilkyBar with biscuit and raisin. All were rather fun experiences apart from the latter, which simply tasted horrible. Raisin and white chocolate? What were they thinking? If this doesn’t send the confectionery industry into disrepute I don’t know what will. Bring back Pretzel Flipz, I say!
So after a rather hectic tour with Bombay Bicycle Club, Melodica have been away travelling the world and resting up before they head back out on the road this October. ‘Piece Me Back Together’ hit the shops this week and for anyone who hasn’t already had chance to buy it is available from the lovely friends at Rough Trade, Puregroove, and Resident, as well in our shop – where you can also get your hands on one of the limited edition T-Shirts and screenprint posters that accompanied the release.
We were also very excited to post our first mixtape this week. But that’s not all. It’s a collection of songs we’re really pleased to have on there, and would just like to thank all of the bands and artists for agreeing to be on there. Throughout the coming weeks you will be seeing a limited number of cassette copies gracing the counters of shops, bars and cafes near you! If your extra lucky you just land one of the 20 reel to reel cassette version. They look very fancy indeed so keep your eyes peeled. It’s a collection of songs we’re really pleased to have on there, and would just like to thank all of the bands and artists for agreeing to be on there.
Full details of the mixtape can be found here.
That’s all for now.
