The black vinyl version of Sylvian’s highly sought after (and fought over!) 2018 Record Store Day release.

The artwork differs slightly from the RSD edition and features a photograph by David’s ex-partner Ingrid, plus some rare photographs by Anton Corbijn. Download card included.
NENEH CHERRY – Broken Politics – LP €23.99, CD €12.99 (Smalltown Supersound)
Neneh Cherry’s extraordinary fifth solo album, ‘Broken Politics’ (produced by Kieran Hebden of Fourtet fame), asks these questions and more searching for answers, patiently and with great care, and with a fearlessness to acknowledge that sometimes the answers don’t even exist. It’s a record that’s equal parts angry, thoughtful, melancholy, and emboldening, as Cherry and her collaborators (Massive Attack’s 3D, Cameron McVey) continue to expand her ever-widening sonic palette to craft truly singular and potent electronic pop.
