we’ve also got a load of merch, including our t-shirts and tote bags from michael’s ‘live at Spirit Studios’ EP – and ALSO a few tapes from The Cosmonaut Cassettes! 🀠 any merch sold today will be sent out asap! 🍞

(ps, here’s two of these silly promo pictures we made for past Bandcamp Fridays. is this how you market music effectively?)

Just The Crust 01/03/21: Tay Temple – Train β˜€οΈ

our feature for today’s Just The Crust is the lovely new single from Tay Temple, ‘Train’! 🌹

we’ve heard this song countless times at open mics and gigs we’ve had Tay on, and it’s super lovely to hear it recorded!! it sounds great. those guitar tones throughout, and the drive of the track really adds to the song – and Tay’s songwriting and singing is on point on this track. definitely worth a listen on this sunny day! 😊

Tay’s third single now only adds to her repertoire of releases, having two previous singles (that we love!) and now a third. we can’t wait for what she has in store for us next! πŸ„β€β™€οΈ

The Cosmonaut Cassettes – ’47’ – available on tape for UK/EU distribution! β˜€οΈ

okay we are absolutely delighted to say we’ve got a couple of tapes from The Cosmonaut Cassettes over in the US, for their debut album ’47’! 🀟

they released ’47’ last year, a folk-rock concept album surrounding the mysteries of the lost ‘Cosmonaut Cassettes’. we love this album, some absolutely unreal storytelling and a super lovely piece of work. we can’t wait to hear even more stuff in the future! 😁

if you fancy one of these super limited-run tapes, then head over to our Bandcamp page at www.breadrecords.bandcamp.com/merch !! 🀠 we’re stoked to be able to help them out with UK/EU distribution of tapes.

if you would like to purchase the album in a digital format, then please head over to The Cosmonaut Cassettes’ original release at https://thecosmonautcassettes.bandcamp.com/album/47 where you’ll be able to support them directly! 🍞

2020 releases! 🌹

we’re still super stoked that we got ALL of these releases out in 2020! so many songs across all of these, definitely worth checking out 🀟

we have such a lovely Bread family here.. keep your eyes peeled for even MORE stuff this year! 😎 drop michael webster and Adam Carpenter Music a like whilst you’re here as well.

with all the news of reopening the UK, you’re sure we’ll be back out there soon enough. we can’t wait for the day when we can celebrate music again, with a lovely cold pint in hand 🍞

find all our music over on our Bandcamp at www.breadrecords.bandcamp.com !

Just The Crust 22/02/21: WHITE NOISE – Mind’s Eye βœŠ

our feature for this week’s Just The Crust is the brand new single from WHITE NOISE, ‘Mind’s Eye’! 😊

Off the back of their debut single last year, WHITE NOISE are back with another hard-hitting tune! “Mind’s Eye” is a real great tune, balancing heavy riffs with prolific songwriting and serious drive to the tune! A real classic windows down low, driving through the countryside and taking in the scenery track. β˜€οΈ

We love the little synths that are in the track (beautiful tones!) and with a real flowing chorus, this is definitely not a track to miss out on! Go and check it out over at https://open.spotify.com/track/2lL55EPPYrsypSSgfjZmQJ? πŸ„β€β™€οΈ we can’t wait to see what else they’ve got in store!
