Alcopop! 2018 end of year love note

What a nice year it has been, and through the standard peaks and troughs that a normal annual calendar will always bloody throw at you, there’s been a slew of delicious highlights, and our hearts are once again singing going into 2019. Hurrah! So in a self-indulgent fit of pique normally reserved for those people you don’t really like on Facebook, please indulge us (or immediately cross out of this page) in our love letter to the people of 2018… And a nice little personal reminder of what’s been Bloody Lovely in the world of Alcopop!

data.select.party reunite for Christmas treat!

Magical things happen at Christmas. Much as we all sometimes want to be a candy-cane-snapping, bauble-smashing, proper bah-humbug scrooge, there are certain events that just convince us that that jolly fella in a red suit (bold choice) really does have some tricks up his sleeve. We can’t help but think that this year the twinkle in his eye comes from the joy of knowing that a special data.select.party show is happening!

itoldyouiwouldeatyou 'Oh Dearism' album release!

Just like six twenty-somethings in Manhattan in the early 00s, we love spending time with our friends. Coffee shops, purple apartments, sofas by fountains… we just adore a good get together. So teaming up with our pals over at Failure By Design Records and the seven gorgeous humans of itoldyouiwoildeatyou has been a pure joy, resulting in the startling debut album Oh Dearism (out today!).

Long Live Freeze the Atlantic (in our minds anyway)

Oh Freeze the Atlantic. Truly one of Alcopop’s! longest-serving, and a bloody magnificent band full of 2 parts Reuben, 1 part Hundred Reasons – and (over the years) several other members from all over. If memory serves we started working with this lot in 2011, and it’s been a really nice time ever since. We kicked off with the Colour by Numbers EP (which came free with some crayons on every sleeve - natch), and in the ensuing years, put out 3 full-length albums, a couple more Eps and a slew of rather attractive shirts.

Kagoule ‘It’s Not My Day’ single, album pre-order, tour

Missed the bus, broke a shoelace, spilled coffee down your new Alcopop! Tee — best just to climb back into bed and accept your fate... while listening to the fantastic new single from Kagoule: ‘It’s Not My Day’ of course, and preordering their brand new record.

Another sweet sweet taste of their forthcoming (and now pre-order-able!) album Strange Entertainment, the trio prove that those ‘everything goes wrong’ days happen to everyone, and attempt to come to terms with reality in this latest offering. Cai mentioned in an interview with Clash Mag that at the time of writing the single ‘there were lots of changes happening...and I needed to remind myself to face up to them’.
