FIT ABOOT IT?

Armellodie is a tiny wee independent label, stable, collective, R.O.C.K consortium, based in but not exclusive to Glasgow, Scotland.

To describe it neopolitan style, it's a chocolate slab of leftfield rock, a strawberry layer of ice-cold indie and a vanilla scoop of the avant garde.

Armellodie’s position is missionary, we always finish on top. Only the finest chops musically, lyrically and egotistically will satisfy Armellodie’s strict A+R policy.

Success doesn’t drive us; we thrive on our underdog status.

THE LATEST SCOOP

Super Adventure Club // Built-In Redundancy RSD Release!

image

So this Saturday is officially Record Store Day and to celebrate we’ll be releasing a super-limited edition live album by our favourite Spazz-jazzers, Super Adventure Club.

Recorded live in Broadcast, Glasgow on Thursday 8th August 2013 Built-In Redundancy has been fully mixed and mastered by audio-guru, Scott Maple.  The album documents Super Adventure Club’s final outing, a great memento of what was a very special night.


Limited to 100 copies Built-In Redundancy will be available on CD in a luxurious 6-panel gatefold digipack with stunning artwork by Matt Sloe (depicting a decaying horse no less!). The CD is being sold exclusively at Glasgow’s Love Music (34 Dundas Street) on Record Store Day, 19 April 2014.

Love Music is a shop that has consistently supported our little label from day one, and Bruce and Mandy from SAC will be performing there at 3:30pm on the day. We’d thoroughly recommend heading along for a jolly, and don’t forget to pick up a copy of the album while you’re there.

Armellodie Records // New Website Goes Live. Hello!

As you might have noticed Armellodie.com has been dragged out of bed, had a shower, a shit and a shave, suited and booted, plugged in, sound-checked, ready for the show.

For a while now we’ve been looking to spruce it up and so that’s just what we’ve done. If you follow us on the tumblr then don’t worry we’re not deserting you, that’ll be kept fresh up-to-date also, but this is our new HQ.

So check it, you’ll find profiles on each of our artists. Look at their bonnie mugs above, Galoshins showing everyone up and taking the prize home for most manly act on the roster.

A detailed Armography with audio, videos, reviews, features, and related interviews. We’re still hard at it with archiving the releases so expect more review links and the likes to appear in good time. We’ve unearthed quite a lot of old radio sessions and things from various hard-drives too, so we’ll look to get them up and streaming in the not too distant future.

Then there’s a bit dedicated to our lovingly put together sampler, still free to download people. Cheap at double the price!

What else have we got …news! This is the news!

The obligatory about bit where we like to wank in front of the mirror. Not literally of course, we wouldn’t want to send the nation into a frenzy. You can find a sign up for our mailing list in here too if you would like sporadic bouts of musical-goodness thrust in your pus directly.

Don’t hesitate to hit the shop either if you fancy a spending spree. Bookmark it, we hope you’ll be a regular customer!

So there you have it. The lights go down, the fans go wild. Presenting… www.armellodie.com.

For those of you who are not aware of Dan, he is the newest recruit to the Armellodie-fold but he’s already put out a lot of cracking stuff in the past. Together with his new band the Euphrates, Benthic Lines is their first release for Armellodie and it’s pretty special to say the least. I’ll let Dan tell you all about it and how it came to be…

"Quite a few of years ago I started writing a collection of songs that my friends and I then decided to record entirely outdoors. From one (generally cold and wet) location to the next and across several countries we found ourselves dragging drum kits and pianos, trombones and accordions. This all took a while. However, this collection of recordings eventually became an album.

When it came to deciding how to physically present the album, we wanted to try something a bit different and ended up creating a beautiful little sixty page book. I’m really chuffed with how this book has worked out and feel it accompanies the music perfectly. There’s stunning cover art by Matthew Cusick, an expertly executed short story by Craig Rennie, photographs of the recording process, illustrations (complete with longitude and latitude coordinates) of the various locations, and all of the lyrics. The book’s made from thick matte paper stock and looks and feels gorgeous. You’ll be able to get it either on it’s own (with a download code for the music), or with a CD.”

And there you have it. The album is available to pre-order now with an immediate download of the song, ‘Earth Broke Its Vow’ to whet your appetite. Look at that, what a beauty!

Appletop // When You Motor Away Review

"The sun is out, the temperatures are getting warmer and I think Spring is creeping in.  So my musical appetite requires some sunny sounding power pop and southern influenced rock.  Where would I find that?  Well, at the moment, I’m finding it on Brave Mountains, the new LP from the French group Appletop.  Yes, a French group on a Scottish label playing American-style alt rock with a bit of a country flavor.  We are citizens of the world."

The Hazey Janes – ‘The Fathom Line’ (Armellodie Records)

They may well now be ten years into a recording career that has already spawned three full-length albums and a couple of EPs, but the brand new single from Dundee’s The Hazey Janes sounds as fresh as a mountain stream. A most sincere and respectful tribute to their home town, ‘The Fathom Line’ takes the listener on a journey back through time to the northern bank of the Tay and in two hundred and…
