|PRE-ORDER CALLUM EASTER'S DEBUT ALBUM
'HERE OR NOWHERE' NOW + WATCH THE STUNNING NEW VIDEO FOR 'FALL IN LOVE'
£13! ONLY £13!!!:
There are many things which Callum Easter
may be pondering, deep in thought in that extremely fetching black and white photograph above – be it the meaning of life, the true essence of love, actor Michael Biehn's quintessential action movie role or quite simply "rice or chips?" But if there is at least one thing which we can be certain isn't
troubling him then it's the question that asks "has my superb debut album Here Or Nowhere
been put on pre-order sale at a less-than-competitive price in the Lost Map
webshop?" Because the answer to that is clearly a resounding "no." No it has not Callum. Nein. Niet. Nope.
An LP copy of one of the best debut albums you will hear this year guaranteed, replete with screen-printed sleeve, hand-stamped labels, download code and – if you're quick and get one of the first few copies – a hand-stamped CD copy inside, can be guaranteed as of today to wing its way to you by its release date of April 5, 2019 for the price of just £13.
Yes, that's £13. Only £13
! No, do not put down your bottle of strong cider! Do not adjust your screen (do give it a wipe though, it's a bit crusty). You did
read that correctly. It says £THIRTEEN. We've spent more than that on Kung Pao chicken with both rice and
chips (always get both, think of the chips like a side-salad).
And there's more! For the amazing price of exactly £FREE you can right now watch the brand new video for Callum's addictive latest single 'Fall In Love'
– a trippy/weird/unnerving close encounter with Callum's handsome FACE in super cool flashing green screen negative. We're so generous to you, and yet we ask for so little in return. Except your love and loyalty. And £13
Still need more convincing? FFS. Okay fine have a listen to Callum live in session (with a grand piano!) for Vic Galloway
on BBC Radio Scotland here

|IN THE POSTMAP CLUB THIS MONTH: NEW RELEASES FROM GRASSCOURT AND RANDOLPH'S LEAP
You'll presumably know how Lost Map's PostMap Club
works by now (if you don't then scroll down), so without further ado we'll just get on with letting you know which two artists' music will be winging its way to you via snail mail this month, should you be signed up to a club that is at least as cool as the sketchy-looking new-wave nightclub in The Terminator (1984)
Grasscourt – CONNEct EP (Part 1)
A brief recap follows on the benefits of being part of the PostMap Club, as well as our different membership tiers:
Grasscourt are some men, two men, from Stroud (see above) and they make lovely kaleidoscopic electro-acoustic songs often with high-quality accompanying videos. The CONNEct EP (Part 1)
features four whole songs of fine melodies, excellent harmonies and assorted beats, blips and beeps. As the titles suggests, it may have sequels, sadly unlike Michael Biehn's best film NAVY SEALs
(1990), which mystifyingly failed at the box office.
Randolph's Leap – 'Mull'
Randolph's Leap is a man, sometimes several men/women, none of them called Randolph. It's complicated. Anyway, we released his/their – which is to say Adam Ross's – latest album, a splendid solo effort called Worryingly Okay
, last year and we figured y'all are ripe for more where that came from, and thus we present to you 'Mull', which comes in both the album version and an alternative version, and is accompanied by two brand new tracks. Adam is on tour with The Burning Hell next month – see dates below. We're not sure what his favourite Michael Biehn film is but our guess is The Rock
(£3 + postage, per month)
- Postcards (obvs)! At least two collectible PostMap postcards sent to your door at the end of every month – each containing download codes for a mixture of brand new music on Lost Map, alongside a random selection from our archives
- Badge! Plus a new badge for every year of your subscription
- Monthly newsletter! Containing hot goss / farmyard shite
- Discounts! On other Lost Map releases, merchandise and gigs
- Feelgood glow! Help support a plucky young independent record label go about its merry business
(£5 + postage, per month)
- All of the above except with a bigger badge
- Supposing a Regular Brew member and a Gold Blend member were in a sketchy-looking new-wave Los Angeles nightclub in 1984, let's call it Tech Noir, and suddenly a giant cyborg assasin in an oversized anorak starting shooting everybody up with an Uzi, but then Zelig-like 1980s action hero Michael Biehn appeared out of nowhere wielding a pump-action shotgun and he reached out a hand and said "come with me if you want to live"? He would totally only do that for the Gold Blend member
JOIN OUR CULT: GET THE LOST MAP LOOK
There are few feelings we know which are more exciting/rewarding than when we see an item of Lost Map merchandise being worn out in the wild. Every time we spot a stranger walking down the street in a fine Lost Map bobbler and/or a tasteful Lost Map sweatshirt, and we start running at them with our arms open wide and they see us and panic and they start running and so we start running too and before we know it we're both running and sometimes they start screaming/crying and occasionally it all ends up becoming a police matter but anyway... let's just say it warms our hearts. Thanks, guys
We've recently taken a new delivery of both the hats (in various colours) and the sweats (in blue/charcoal colours), so if you'd like to join our cult then get shopping now – they're liable to sell out quick. Yes, granted, we're coming into the warm season soon and probably wearing a hat and a sweatshirt will be a bit excessive, but think of it as planning ahead for those cold winter nights next winter when you save on bills by putting on all of your clothes and sit in the freezing cold with all of the lights off, watching a marathon of classic Michael Biehn moves on VHS including Aliens (1986), The Abyss (1989) and Tombstone (1993).
Don't be a complete and utter cult, shop with us today
