Allysha Joy’s debut 45 – FNFL / Akala

Northside Records is very excited about the New Allysha Joy 45, out now on our own Northside Records label. With all the hype about Record Store Day over the last couple of weeks we haven’t really had a chance to shine the light on this release yet. For those who were lucky enough to witness Allysha and her band performing at the store on Saturday for RSD, you’ll understand why we are excited. For those who don’t know, Allysha is part of Melbourne soul collective, 30/70, who released their own underground classic “Cold Radish Coma” in 2015. Since then Allysha and co. have been relentlessly performing and and pushing the boundaries of the ever expanding Melbourne’s soul, hip hop and jazz scenes.

Call it whatever you want, we call it fire. The proof is in the listening. We have limited numbers of the 45 remaining at Northside, and you can possibly still find it around town at our favourite record stores. Available as audio-download sometime soon.

The other treat we dropped on Record Store Day is this: Six to Six by Hiroshio and Claudia. Originally released in 1979, this Sydney/Tokyo recording really defies description. There are elements of jazz, soul, disco along with atmospheric soundscapes and fat drum breaks that have deservedly turned this into one of the most sought-after vinyl rarities ever to come out of Australia. The new reissue recording was painstakingly restored and remastered by Dan Elleson, and sounds every bit as good as the original, if not better! This release is in conjunction with The Roundtable, and you can get the full story and a taste of this record over at Light In The Attic, who’ve trumped us all and have a great page dedicated to this release. Thanks Light In The Attic!

Finally, a quick thanks to everyone who came through Northside on Saturday. What a day! A full round-up will follow as soon as Chris cleans the shop 😉 Big ups to Chris as well, a massive effort on his behalf. Every day is Record Store Day at Northside.
