Mush share the first track to be released on the newly formed Dipped In Gold Recordings

A fresh venture from the people behind Too Pure Singles Club

Last year, after more than a decade, the Too Pure Singles Club came to an end. It’d been a ride – more than 120 releases, including early recordings by the likes of Pulled Apart By Horses, Bear Hands and Drahla.

Loud And Quiet’s Dom Haley charted the story of the label before it closed its doors in November 2017.

But that label’s indefatigable spirit lives on. Today sees the launch of Dipped In Gold Recordings. It’s not a monthly subscription club by Too Pure, instead sharing the most exciting new sounds they come across.

This fresh chapter begins with a release from Mush. The Leeds four-piece share ‘Gig Economy’ – four minutes of addictive, scratchy, lo-fi art-rock. It comes out on 14 September. Hey, if you like it, you can even pre-order it now.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
