The Letter

I (Luke) stumbled across Luke Rainsford via a convoluted web of friends, contacts and random acquaintances. On first listen, the blend of Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly and Frank Hamilton made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and I knew I wanted to share it with more people. So, we’re not only able to share his amazing sophomore release I Feel at Home with You, but we’ve been able to do it on an exclusive Wax & Stamp colour variant on lovely lemon yellow. I’m so excited to see what you folk think of this.

Next up, Josh’s record. This is amongst my albums of the year so far. Absolutely stellar release from Lord Echo. Part reggae, part electronic boogie, part world adventure. While I don’t advocate skipping, the O’Jays cover at the end is incredible.
