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.
