In the store | JESSE HACKETT - JUNK

Peanut Butter Wolf's new imprint is Circle Star Records. Circle Star's first full length will be Jesse Hackett's album JUNK on July 17.

This is the debut LP from Hackett, a London-based producer. JUNK is glam rock and "sleazy lizard lounge punk-funk," all recorded on a Yamaha PSR-110 found in a recycling dump. The first single is "Sacred Oblivion."

Circle Star has more releases planned for 2015 from Vex Ruffin, Mild High Club and Diva. All releases will be available at the Stones Throw store.

PS. We say "new imprint" with one caveat: the first release on the label was a 7-inch single by Dam-Funk in 2009.
