unapologetically old-school indie-pop,
made without secret plans to fill stadiums (ugh)
Released on September 1, 2023:
The Photocopies' official debut album, Top of the Pops.
This 13-track collection of new material is limited to just 50 transparent 45rpm 7" records.
Yes, you read that correctly. It's a 13-track album on a 7" record. It's roughly 11 minutes long and it's released via Ultra Modern.
All previous Photocopies albums so far have been compilations containing songs from earlier digital releases. That's why Top of the Pops is really the debut album, despite its brevity and... well, size.
There is also a digital version of the album if you prefer (available here from September 1), but it's designed to be experienced as a record. Here's what's on it:
A few lucky record buyers will also receive Youth Training Scheme, a free 33rpm 5" record of earlier songs previously unavailable on vinyl:
A digital single, released first on Bandcamp where artist proceeds from its sales go to mental health charity Mind. The Bandcamp single has a new mix of Straight F's not found on other streaming services.
There are videos for both the A-side and the daft B-side.
Check out The Photocopies on merchandise website Redbubble.
There are several new t-shirt designs, some of which are also available as badges/pins/buttons or whatever you prefer to call them!
The first actual record by The Photocopies is this set of four A-sides from 2022 digital singles.
Limited to only 50 transparent copies on the new Ultra Modern label, 15 copies also include a free 5" EP of three new songs!
(Update: All the records sold out on the day of release.)
Eight brand new songs were released today on Hopelessly Devoted!
You can find this collection on Bandcamp (where it's very reasonably priced indeed). It arrives on other digital music outlets on November 7.
Volume 2 of Greatest Hits is out now on digital music platforms, including Bandcamp.
It includes all the best songs from recent singles and EPs. Here's a list of everywhere you'll find this compilation album.
The 15-track Et Cetera: B-sides & more compilation album is now on sale here!
The collection formed part of the recent Pop Trivia 2-CD set and consists of single B-sides, EP tracks, and two songs not previously released on singles or EPs.
It's also available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and elsewhere.
