Category Archives: Welcome


We are delighted that Patrick Jones & John Robb will be coming to Spillers to celebrate the release of Renegade Psalms.

The album is astoundingly moving and a much welcome document of our times.  We can’t wait to experience it live in Spillers.  When events around us become increasingly fraught and  unpredictable it is always music, art and words that bring great comfort to the soul, and Renegade Psalms does just this.  So please, come and celebrate this fantastic album with us. X

Space will be limited so please email to reserve your place. 

“Renegade Psalms” 18 months in the making. The personal is the political. The political has
become personal. Raging words and brooding beats. A sonic document of our times. Jones takes aim at borders , the bedroom tax, the monarchy, Tory dismantling of The Welfare State, greed and austerity whilst celebrating the resilience of the human spirit, love, the power of literature and the growing tide of protest as Robb’s atmospheric soundscapes fill the grooves with a sense of emotional urgency. “Then the world will be for the common people, and the sounds of happiness will reach the deepest springs. Ah! Come! People of every land, how can you not be roused.” The Communist Manifesto 1848. “a cunning concoction of laissez-faire and big brother a meticulous maledicta that sets one against another as Starbucks and Amazon find new ways to fall beneath the radar the most vulnerable, the sick, the poor are targeted by IDS, the moral crusader” Demonise or Die (for Stephanie Bottrill)

Croeso to this week’s new release list which is a good-un and a corker. You can click the link above to see the delights we have in!  
We’re particularly excited about the new Comet is Coming album which has a huge amount of energy, as you can see from the track below.  

CINEMATIC ORCHESTRA  have brought in collaborators old and new for their new album: Moses Sumney, Roots Manuva, Heidi Vogel, Dorian Concept and Tawiah (Mark Ronson, Kindness). Miguel Atwood-Ferguson (Flying Lotus, Anderson Paak, Thundercat, Hiatus Kaiyote) features on strings and photographer and visual artist Brian “B+” Cross collaborated with Swinscoe and Smith on the album’s concept. The track below with ROOTS MANUVA is a blinder, we’re sure you’ll agree. 

Some lovely variety on the local front to bring to your attention with much anticipated new music from VENOM PRISON (available on CD and a LIMITED WHITE LP!) and RATATOSK (this CD comes in the most beautiful, hand-made, foldout package) making their mark here. 

There’s a LOT more asides from these mentioned on the list so dig in!  And do contact us directly if you’d like a reservation of any of these or mail-order. 

Diolch, Spillers

Very sorry for the delay in posting!  A battle between being a staff member down this week, being bitten by a bit of a bug, spilling coffee over a laptop and the usual fun and games of life! 

We are very happy to be playing music by our favourite female artists today in the shop, as we like to do each and every day. 

Here is a very small selection of amazing women in music from past and present that we love, respect and hold in high esteem for sharing their voices.

RSD19 Releases PRINTABLE 28.02.19

As always we need your must haves and wants! Your feedback helps shape the enormous task of selecting the right things in the right quantities to keep you happy

Please feel free to DM us on twitter, email us, post on our special facebook page and come in and see us!

There’s a lot on offer (more every year, as always) so have your say and help us pick the right quantity of the big releases and help us not miss a thing!

We can’t wait to participate in another RSD and we are already putting our heads together behind the scenes to tweak and improve the running of the day, last year’s RSD was by far the biggest one yet (diolch 6 Music/Lauren Laverne!) but we do appreciate that it did impact on waiting times in the queue.

The great news is that we have decided to dedicate the upstairs shop floor to RSD stock which means that all customers will be able to see and browse the complete RSD offering  we have (without the frustration of watching the entire sleep deprived staff fall over themselves, each other and 1 million David Bowie records!)
There will be a maximum capacity at any given time but we really feel that letting you select your records will help speed up the shopping process and there will be loads more space for the stock to shine
As well as this we will have an additional card machine terminal which again can only speed up the process for our lovely (patient/tired/understanding) customers!

And let’s not forget the special RSD entertainment of which more news TBC… But already we can tell you RSD at Spillers is not a day to miss.

Side note – RSD is a huge financial gamble for all shops involved, yes it can be a great day (very much depending on what volume of “left overs” a shop is stuck with vs sales) but all stock ordered is firm sale to shops and non returnable and some orders are subject to massive cuts from order to allocation so we really can’t stress how valuable your feedback is to us!!

Please click this link for the list SpillersRecords-New-Release-list-22.2.19

Also, don’t forget it is always possible to pre-order things from us to help make sure you get what you want!
