Just a reminder that Some Other Places is still available on CD in Japan:
http://rallye-label.com/california-snow-story/

and on our Bandcamp:

...

We were also assured that the album was going to be released on vinyl by a Scottish label this year but not heard anything on that for a few months.

We're selling a few copies of our first CDEP and most recent album on Bandcamp at the moment if anyone is interested. https://californiasnowstory.bandcamp.com/

Loved this band since Suburban Light. New album sounds amazing!

Today our sixth LP comes out. Our first in seven years. The cover is by Carel Weight and there are twelve songs with harp, french horn, cello, dulcimer, piano and spanish guitar. Please have a listen, and if you like it, buy it on a tangible format. Thank you, love, the Clientele x

Lovely review of Some Other Places from wonderful French blog Piggledy Pop: http://piggledypop.blogspot.co.uk/…/california-snow-story.h…

Décidément, c'est une évidence, je suis ultra sensible à l'indie-pop écossaise. La 'scottish pop' de Glasgow avec California Snow Story ...

We are no.14 in a best of 2016 list in a Taiwan record shop! It's great to be appreciated in far away places alongside very well-known artists (while being ignored in the UK as usual).

終於生出來了,奮死這裡特別感謝評選團:

Nice Young Marble Giants/Stuart Moxham tribute compilation just released, please check it out! We were going to contribute a song but didn't manage unfortunately. Might let you hear it one day if we ever finish the song.

The compilation dedicated to Stuart Moxham (Young Marble Giants Official, the G!st, himself...) is out.
https://lesdisquesmaladroits.bandcamp.com

I can say that... I really love this compilation, not because I worked hard on it, but because the songs are (so) good, & because the bands worked well. There are 2 exclusive tracks by Stuart on the comp, btw, including one from 1982.

All benefits will go to Stuart.

We've been getting some radio play by Kara Manning on #WFUV radio in the US and she's chosen Some Other Places as one of the best albums of 2016! Seems we were beaten by David Bowie and Radiohead though.

Just listening to the Japanese band Eddie Marcon this evening. I've loved their music for a long time and constantly surprised that they aren't more well known. They play live shows at small cafes, one of which I was lucky to see, and recently seem to mainly be putting out their music on CDR format. It's quite nice in a way but strange as they are so talented.

A song from our album Some Other Places. We were lucky to get Lupe from Pipas / Amor de Dias to sing on this one and loved what she did with the song.

My new album is available online! (only in Japan so far...) I really like the design of the cover and the booklet, designed by Graeme McNee.

We've been talking to another label about a vinyl release and all going well it should happen in a few months, along with the cassette release mentioned before. We'll let you know the details soon hopefully.

Good and bad news about physical releases for Europe:

A new label in England offered to do a vinyl release for us and we were lined up to be the first album release on the label. Sadly they've pulled the plug on it at the last minute, even though we had a catalogue number and started work on the artwork. It's part-owned by the same person who offered to do the vinyl release earlier this year on his previous label, which he closed down shortly after the offer! Not a great expe...rience but better to find out now what we would have been letting ourselves in for.

We do have the chance of a single release on a new and more promising UK label plus we have a small-scale cassette release planned. We hope we can find another label to release Some Other Places on vinyl in Europe – any takers please get in touch. We have had quite a few enquiries about a vinyl release so it seems people would like it to happen.

We are still very happy that the album is available on the Rallye Label in Japan on CD, digitally on Shelflife for the US and on our Bandcamp page!
