The new Distractions album is nearing completion, evidenced by the Occultation Recordings catalogue number that has just been announced in the latest label press release.  YMIR7DC017 on LP and CD will be the third Distractions release and the seventeenth on the label, with the sixteenth being the intriguing self-titled debut from New Zealand's Opposite Sex.

New Zealand’s Fishrider Records and UK-based Occultation Recordings (Wild Swans, Distractions, June Brides, etc.), are pleased to announce a trans-global alliance for the UK release of the self-titled debut album by Opposite Sex, available on 180g vinyl and CD from www.occultation.co.uk and distributed in the UK and Europe by Proper from 23rd April 2012. 

The subversive pop of Opposite Sex will warm the heart of anyone who viewed the heady years of 1978-1982 (Rough Trade Records including the NME's C81 Cassette, No Wave and the start of Flying Nun Records in NZ) as a watershed period in alternative music - a time when there were no rules and anything seemed possible.
