We are celebrating today's release of the Shit and Shine – That's Enough EP – though unfortunately there has been a meltdown at the plant and the ltd vinyl is delayed. This is what we were sent:
Unfortuantely the factory have just informed us they have gone massively over capacity and into meltdown and all original schedules are now void until this is cleared / sorted out.
Your records will not ship until next year now, probably 10/01 but this may come forward as the back log is cleared.
Very sorry about this but not much we can do.
Though you can now at least listen to the EP in full now, via Spotify or buy download via iTunes
But we are still taking preorders on the Ltd 12", so if you want a copy better get on it quick as there aren't that many left: Bandcamp

The press release reads:
Gnoomes released Tschak!, one of the best, most inventive, and one of the most unsung ‘great’ albums of 2017.
The Russian three piece’s second album uniquely forged classic ‘Warp’ like electronica played on old soviet synths and blended it with the sounds experimental pop, krautrock and shoegaze dreamscapes.
Once the album was released, several artists contacted the band and asked if they could get their hands on the stems and play around with the songs intriguing ingredients.
So it was decided to open it out and invite friends of the band and label mates to remix the whole album.
Artists like Ulrich Schnauss, Lorelle Meets the Obsolete and Al Lover jumped to the challenge - as well as Rocket artists like Josefin Öhrn, Lay Llamas and Julie’s Haircut. All have succeeded to morph the originals into something completely new, without losing the addictive charm at the core of the original versions.
“I wanted to take many of the abstract elements and blend them all together. Making it flow and build while giving the new version a solid groove”. Al Lover
“We love Gnoomes and we intended to do an entirely different remix but we liked the original so much that we ended up using loads of it.” Fred Joelson (Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation)
Tschak Remixed! Is being released on ltd edition cassette as well as digitally on 1st December.

Press release reads:
Hot on the heels of Shit & Shine’s ‘Total Shit’ album on Powell’s Diagonal label, the band return with a new three track EP, their third release for Rocket Recordings called ‘That’s Enough’.
For the uninitiated, the Austin based band Shit & Shine have been creating mutant, repetitive, technofied noise for labels such as Mego, Riot Season, Gang Signs, Load and the afore mentioned Diagonal since 2004.
It is always hard to describe exactly what each Shit & Shine release sounds like as they are a band who treats each record as it’s own entity and so their sound changes dependant on their mood at the time of making it, but whatever that mood is, it will always be something thrilling and uniquely original.
The three tracks on ‘That’s Enough’ EP (that clock in at just under 40 minutes) ‘sort of’ sound like what would happen if The Necks got trapped in a lift with the Butthole Surfers and Schwefelgeb for 12 hours. And after they manage to get out, the Australian 3-piece return to their studio to discover their instruments have been stolen and replaced by some fuzzy synths and a laptop - the resulting music they would make could possibly sound something like this...or in fact, maybe nothing like this?
Shit & Shine are heading over to the UK for shows this October:
11 / Switzerland / Geneve / Cave 12
12 / Switzerland / Lausanne / Lebourg
13 / Switzerland / Schaffhausen / Tabtap
14 / Italy / Verona / Colorfico Kroen
