March Releases Roundup

If February was a good month for releases, March surely didn’t disappoint either. While Ghostpoet shot his brand new record at the very beginning of the month, giving us an amazing head start, we had to hold on almost till the very end of March to be delighted by Courtney Barnett “Sometimes I Sit and Think, Sometimes I just Sit”, which, by the way, was worth the wait. Luckily, right in the middle, Aidan Moffat & Bill Wells came to rescue us with their ” The Most Important Place in The World”, crowned by the public as our “Album of the Month”, a well deserved title for this Chemikal Underground music pearl. Wichita Recordings then provided us with the monthly dose of happiness with Girlpool “Chinatown” and Oscar’s “Daffodil Days”, both on limited edition 7″, so hurry up if you want a copy!

Anyway, we’re fond of each and every release we manufacture, ALL RECOMMENDED!

Vaughan Oliver comments on his “Indie Cindy” Grammy nomination

Vaughan Oliver has been nominated for a Grammy in the  Best Recording Package category for Pixies’ “Indie Cindy”.

We’re honoured to have worked with him on the release and very grateful he took the time to answer a few questions for us! 

Congratulations on your Grammy nomination. Will you be going to the ceremony on Sunday?

I’m afraid it’s too far and involves flying too high.

You were previously nominated for Pixies’ Minotaur Deluxe Edition box set and now for Indie Cindy, do you think there is something about Pixies that pushes your creativity even further? How much does the music influence the creative process?

All of the musical output from 4AD pumped my gut in those days. Inspiration from the music, lyrics , meeting the band or seeing them live was the best brief. His Name is Alive and Pixies were favourite collaborations.

When you start a project, do you have a very clear view of how you would like the finished product to look? Was that the case with Indy Cindy?

It varies. I prefer to take inspiration from a working process/collaboration without an end vision. That way gives my collaborators more freedom and produces exciting work.

A lot of designers cite you as a key influence on their work. Can I ask if there is anyone that you would cite as being a major influence on you?

Very kind of you to reference my influence. I know it’s a result of the connection with the music effecting our opinions in our formative years. For me, I tend to look outside of my discipline for influence. Film and literature for example. Huge influences were excellent art tutors at school and polytechnic. I loved their youthful, curious, enigmatic personnae. I had an open mind.

And finally, Marsala (pms 18-1438), will it be Vaughan Oliver’s Pantone colour of the year?

I quite like a dhansak.

Below Vaughan’s comment on our collaboration for the package, needless to say that the pleasure to work together was mutual and we can’t wait to do it again!

“First class production service from start to finish. Began with a studio visit to outline my design proposals with Kath. The process thereafter was very efficient and so professional. Kath was always ready with alternative suggestions when my artwork was not suitable for the materials and always very prompt with proofs. Her overseeing the job on press was also most useful. Together we came up with a result which is undoubtedly one of my best designs in recent years and certainly one of my favourite production experiences. A true collaboration. Plaudits from the band and fans have been very satisfying. Congratulations to Kath and everybody at Key Production. Can we do it again soon please? Sincerely,”

Vaughan Oliver
