IMG_2308

Shape Worship’s debut album, A City Remembrancer, is OUT NOW on 12″ LP and DL.

“I think this is Gillett’s debut, and gets some serious applause from this camp as a result; this is brilliantly constructed stuff” – Norman Records

“Gillett’s work is sweetly charismatic, with fullsome production, well-crafted drums and warped keyboards of several species” – The Wire

“the album is a step on from the more linear approach of Gillett’s earlier singles, dealing in layers of abstract ambience peppered with slithers of rhythm” – Juno Plus

You can stream the whole album over at Juno Plus.

Check out the packaging here.

And buy from BoomkatNorman Records, Rough TradeResident, Juno and all fine record shops (on line and in the real world).  Plus you can order directly from us here and here.

Shape Worship will be launching the album at Rye Wax on Thursday 22nd October with Moon Gangs (live), Eva Bowen (live), Alien Jams, Rory Gibb and Pure Joy.  Full info here.
