We are proud to release:

CMR022:  Spencer Segelov - “Loser Leaves Town” DL

Loser Leaves Town cover web

 Spencer Segelov is a musical genius who has been omnipresent on the music scene of South Wales for the past decade. From fronting the Spencer McGarry Season to adding his skills to albums by John Mouse, Sweet Baboo, The Soft Hearted Scientists & The Naked Citizens, Spencer has finally made the solo album we have all been waiting for – Loser Leaves Town !

From the heartache yacht-rock of Ann-Marie to the melancholic euphoria of The Records In Your Dad’s Collection and the hyper-catchy Nice Work If You Can Get It, the album Loser Leaves Town is a modern classic fixated on failed relationships, unhealthy nostalgia, depression, spiritual desire based on experiences in Swansea where Spencer grew up.

CMR021:  Naked Citizens - “Naked Citizens” CD

NakedCitizens-Cover

 Naked Citizens are a South Wales musical collective that have recorded a collection of amazing songs in a variety of styles with musicians from some of the finest acts in the area. Part vaudeville show, part twisted Top of The Pops LP, The Naked Citizens have redefined the compilation album into a collage of 21st Century society snapshots that us at turns uplifting, furious and tragic. A kind of “Now That’s What I call Disillusionment Volume 1” if you like!

 The songs, written from of a range of ages and viewpoints, have lyrics that are at turns sad, funny and spiky, and music which is diverse and uplifting and features styles as diverse as Gospel, Glam Rock, Space Disco, Electro Swing, 50s Rock & Roll, Indie and Argentine Tango.

CMR015: Jon Langfords Men of Gwent - The Legend of LL LP

COVER final
On hearing the news of witch Thatchers death and after years living solely within in the Welsh Valleys, the Men of Gwent finally went to the big City of Newport. Fuelled only by Tiny Rebel Beer and Penderyn Whisky, the group recorded this incredible love letter to Wales.

Listen in wonder as Jon Langford and his all-star motley crew take you on a personal journey around central Newport, coastal Aberystwyth, rural Llanyrafon and the docks of Pill. Fans of the 1970s will be pleased to hear the song "Adrian Street", a tribute to the Glam-Rock Wrestler originally from Brynmawr who now lives in sunny Florida.
