DINKED Editions: 007 Rozi Plain and 008 Flamingods
As I'm sure you all know by now, DINKED is a cooperative venture initiated by some of our favourite independent record shops and incorporating a whole slew of record shops through out the U.K.
DINKED will be organising special, limited editions of new records and classic albums for select releases. These will all be limited and will differ from the standard "Indies-Only" pressings.
So far that's included sold out editions of albums by Kurt Vile and John Carpenter, plus the debut album from You Tell Me. There's been such care and attention put into all of the releases, so we're really excited to bring you details on the next two DINKED releases below:
ROZI PLAIN: What A Boost
300 x glow in the dark vinyl
Signed, hand numbered alternate glow in the dark artwork
Monorail favourite Rozi Plain's new album, available on 3 formats
Rozi Plain has announced her new album ‘What a Boost’ will be released on 5 April 2019 on new label home Memphis Industries. The ten track album was self-produced with the
help of a long list of musical friends including Kate Stables, Jamie Whitby Coles, Neil Smith (all This is the Kit), Chris Cohen, Joel Wästberg (Sir Was) and Sam Amidon.
Rozi Plain has been making music since her brother taught her a few chords on the guitar aged 13. Raised in Winchester, she spent a few years studying art and painting boats in Bristol, where she began collaborating with long-term friends Kate Stables (This Is The Kit) and Rachael Dadd among many others on a thriving local scene. It was there that Rozi made her first two albums, 2008’s Inside Over Here and 2012’s Joined Sometimes Unjoined, each works of deliciously sad and beautiful pop full of heart-wrenching harmonies dotted with unexpected instrumental flourishes. Released in April 2015 on Lost Map and featuring contributions from Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor among others her last album Friend was a deeply meaningful and wonderfully measured ode to memory, place, companionship and music’s remarkable power as an emotional salve. A companion album of remixes, unreleased tracks and radio sessions, Friend Of A Friend, was released in 2016.

The follow up to Flamingod's breakthrough 2016 album 'Majesty'
International psych explorers Flamingods are back with brand new album ‘Levitation’ coming out on via Moshi Moshi Records.
Inspired largely by the disco, funk and psychedelic sounds coming out of the Middle East and South Asia in the 70s, the album channels these influences through a vision soaked in mysticism, positivity and sun-drenched imagery. During the process of writing and recording ‘Levitation’, Flamingods for the first time in four years found themselves living in the same continent, and it’s this new unified feel that defines the confident and eclectic sound of the album.
‘Levitation’ is the follow-up to Flamingods’ breakthrough 2016 album ‘Majesty’ and follows their ‘Kewali’ EP release for Moshi Moshi in 2017 and a one-off release with Dan Carey for his Speedy Wunderground singles club. During this time they’ve performed live sessions at 6Music (with Gilles Peterson & Lauren Laverne), KEXP, Boiler Room and have been travelling the globe spreading their exotic psychedelia to the masses and getting people dancing from Austin to Amsterdam.
