After spending most of 2013 releasing free digital EPs and various cassettes, North Carolina’s THE SWEETS have returned with 4 newly recorded favorites from their fast-growing catalog to press on this 45rpm 7″ single out on Bleeding Gold 24 March 2014. This edition of 250 copies features Glow-Blue-In-The-Dark vinyl with awesomely-pervy artwork by Rafal Karcz.
Here is an exclusive preview of the first track “Coffee In The Morning”:
Moses Gold is the creative vision of Manchester’s Phill Young. Formed in 2013 after the dissolution of his previous project, the critically acclaimed Christian AIDS/Stay+, Young re-emerged with some of the most extraordinarily heart-rending and beautiful music that the city has ever heard. Working with producer Ben Pearson (Espher) the wounded baritone of Young’s voice glows against a sparkling electronic backdrop. Vivid and visceral, Young’s expression of loneliness and regret is littered with melancholy and tiny glimpses of hope. Confrontational, but more emotionally than physically, he’s been described as “Ian Curtis trapped in a 21st century nightmare.”
Debut single ‘Paradise Lost’ features a collaboration with former bandmate and friend London based producer Stay Positive (Black Butter, RAMP, OWSLA) Young who has previously spoken with unerring honesty about his long-term battle with depression, wants to create music people“can relate to and respond to. Not enough singers do that.” After leaving his previous band it was vital for Young to continue to make music to challenge himself and his audience. Enter Moses Gold, meaning “Prophet of Greed” whose début single ‘Paradise Lost’ is a huge statement of intent and the first step in achieving the ambitious goal Young has set himself “to write an album as beautiful as ‘Kid A’ or as honest as ‘Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space’. ‘Paradise Lost’ is released March 10th on limited edition 12″ vinyl.

The title is from the philosopher: Thomas Hobbe’s ‘Leviathan’ of which Laurie studied during his time at university. Hobbes says that ungoverned man would be constantly at war because of Competition, Diffidence and Glory. This is a comprehensible story about family life and how it can affect your studies, read into it as much as like.
