Welcome to the new Soft Records Blog
Due to ongoing difficulties we have moved over to Blogger. We hope you enjoy the new version, we've even been able to put in some Buy Now buttons, so check out the Releases Page.
Lots of stuff on the go here at Soft Records, but most importantly, our most beautiful new release 'Illumination' by Kevin Purdy
'Illumination' the long-awaited new LP by Kevin Purdy has finally arrived on our shores. This beautiful 140gm vinyl lovely is loud and very good-looking. Kevin has stripped back his multi-layered production style, creating an album of deep and rich textural sound voyages.
Focusing on his Ebo guitar and synth work, often heard floating around on Tooth and Purdy releases, Kevin has created a wonderous collection of ambient, minimal dub and improvised works. This is essentially a Kevin Purdy solo LP, excepting the last track, 'Cloud Shadows on Hill' which features a vocal performance by the legendary Amanda Stewart (Poet, performer: Machines For Making Sense, Metalog, etc). You can order the LP here or through Bandcamp, where you can alternatively download the album if you wish.You can also get yourself a copy of 'Illumination' in Sydney at Title Music, Egg Records and Red Eye Records, in Melbourne it's available at Round and Round Records in Brunswick. There will be stock in other states soon. All LPs come with a free download card and a specially made sticker.
