about

the black watch return with their 18th (!) full length album and so pleased to have them onboard of A TURNTABLE FRIEND RECORDS. It is their best effort yet, propelled by the title track 'brilliant failures' (video here: youtu.be/nDPH71lrwCU) and previous single 'crying all the time' with its wonderful video youtu.be/k92dDujabUE). Also the opening 'julie II' lament and its Nico-esque counterpart 'julie' define this early 2020 top-of-the-list contender. In total 13 fantastic tracks brought to you as physical formats on limited colourful sleeve-matching vinyl, also slightly less limited black (watch) vinyl and CD. With the download, you also get an iTunes booklet. What more can you ask for ? Well, make sure you browse the label's catalogue to save on shipping ! (aturntablefriendrecords.bandcamp.com)
