Announcement Time!

We’ve been sitting on this one for a wee while so we are very happy to get it out there!

Double A-Side Records is proud to announce that on November 1st we will be re-releasing Curdle’s debut album. The album, previously released on CD, will be available on coloured vinyl and all digital platforms, complete with a new artwork. Pre-order it below.

CURDLE FRONT RGB 72 DPI

On that very same evening we’ll be venturing into The Flying Duck’s back room to celebrate a new addition to the family.

Joining Curdle we have:

Tongue Trap:
After having spent the summer playing festivals such as TRNSMT, Leith Late and Doune the Rabbit Hole, the now five piece Glasgow band have turned some heads since forming in 2015 as part of the Girls Rock School in Edinburgh.

Miserichord:
Solo project from Kaspar Hauser bassist. Minimal, mournful, warnings from a dark future. Julee Cruise on bad acid.

But there’s more! We’ll have Healthy playing your favourite Riot Grrl and goth tunes to keep the party going. As always we’ll be hosting a raffle and this time all funds will be going to Extinction Rebellion.

We’re Pledging!

We are proud to announce that we have signed the PRS Foundation’s Equalising Music pledge.

prs-keychange-logo_red-blue_RGB.png

We are pledging to achieve gender equality across our roster and gig line ups. Our co-founder Alicja Tokarska had this to say about us signing this pledge:

We feel that signing the Keychange Pledge is necessary to highlight the issue of gender bias which is still present in the music industry in 2019. Far too often women are not given chances in favour of their male counterparts, especially in terms of performing their music live and headlining shows and festivals. We want to contribute to creating a more equal world where male, female and non-binary musicians and industry professionals can enjoy the same opportunities.”

But what is Keychange? It is a campaign that has been set up by the PRS Foundation to “transform the future of music whilst encouraging festivals to achieve a 50:50 gender balance by 2022.” To find out more, check out their full manifesto. They have now expanded to inviting venues, labels and organisations across the music industry in general to join the campaign. As Primavera Sound has proven, it is possible – this year had an amazing gender balanced line up, branded as The New Normal. As it should be.

A New Addition to the Family

We are thrilled to welcome the fabulous Curdle to the Double A-Side Records family!

After working with them on Play It Like a Woman and LOVING their sound, attitude and style we will be working with the band to re-release their debut album on vinyl and digital platforms later this year. We couldn’t be more excited, Keep an eye out for more news about it in the coming months. xo

We Are Turning Two!

AA10 2nd Birthday Poster

We’ve had a brilliant last year, so we felt it best to have a party to celebrate! We have a fun filled and hugely talented line up joining us at The Glad Cafe on the 22nd June. On the bill we have:

Carla J. Easton

Carla released one of our favourite albums of 2018 with our pals at Olive Grove Records, and we were thrilled to have her contribute a track to Play it Like a Woman. She’s worked with the likes of Belle & Sebastian and The Vaselines, and has a voice like no other. She’s bringing her full band who blew the roof off Òran Mór at Celtic Connections – this is not to be missed! But don’t take our word for it check this out:

Home Economics

Our own jangle poppers will be playing hot off the heels of their double a-side single Idiots and April dates with fellow Double A-Siders Life Model. Guitars, noise – you know what to expect by now.

Lemon Drink

New on the scene Lemon Drink have managed to rack up support slots with Double A-Side favourites Lazy Day and Our Girl. Definitely ones to keep an eye on…

As always there will also be the (now infamous) Double A-Side raffle with all the proceeds going to the Mental Health Foundation (MHF) AND there will be cake and party hats. What are you waiting for, tickets are on sale now:
