Occultation Recordings

We're thrilled to welcome Manchester's The Distractions to the label with their "Black Velvet" digital EP, then "Nothing" - an album featuring their debut EP, classic Factory single "Time Goes By So Slow"/"Pillow Fight" (FAC12) plus the legendary 1995 recordings - and a new single to be recorded in June.

The above is included the latest email update from Occultation Recordings. To keep up to date with the latest from The Distractions and more from Occultation, we recommend signing up to their email list at the website!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Occultation Recordings proudly announce advance orders for the second Granite Shore single, "Flood of fortune" b/w "Highway code", a 7" featuring Nick Halliwell, Phil Wilson (June Brides), Arash Torabi and Andy Fonda, plus full strings and brass, recorded in Devon, London and Los Angeles. The single is only £4+P&P from us and there's also a very limited promo CD available to buy with the 7" (while stocks last), plus special package pricing when purchased together with previous Occultation releases. Vinyl orders qualify for free 320k MP3s and we now have an automated system sending links immediately by e-mail - just check your inbox after paying. We expect to have the vinyl and promos over the next week or so and will send them out as soon as we get them.

The single is also available as a digital download from the MP3 Shop.

The Wild Swans album is nearly done and as soon as Paul Simpson gives us the word we'll get it out. We're also releasing Jonathan Beckett's "She's A Vampire" digital EP and we're thrilled to welcome Manchester's The Distractions to the label with their "Black Velvet" digital EP, then "Nothing" - an album featuring their debut EP, classic Factory single "Time Goes By So Slow"/"Pillow Fight" (FAC12) plus the legendary 1995 recordings - and a new single to be recorded next month as icing on the cake.

If you've any questions, want to order singles in a combination missing from the "Packages" page or have any problems with our new automated system please drop us a line.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who's supported us - we simply couldn't do this without you.
