    I am never one of those people to beg in the comments for a repress, but…if ANY record needs one, it’s this. Seriously, what can I do to help make it happen?

      They’ve got a new one coming out on AD93 - the follow up label to Whities

        The whole thing is amazing, but Inheritance..... Blows you away everytime. The pairing of LOTI and Ellen Renton's brilliant poetry. Its kind of amazing to think this collaboration even happened as its not something you would typically expect to see, but there may never have been a better idea birthed. It makes so much sense

            In the Michael Faber book Under The Skin, the main character Isserley later played by Scarlet Johansson plays an alien being who is meant to deliver human bodies to her homeland, she has an internal monologue based on what she sees and interacts with, this could so easily be the soundtrack to that lack of empathy but wonder she has as she meets the natives.

              The beauty and emotion in every track is quite incredible. One of my favourite ever records.

                The 'last' Whities release - prior they come with the new AD93 alias - comes packed with pure beauty that shines.

                Every track stands on its own, with Inheritance and Waiting In Arisaig above all. Ellen Renton is a joyful discovery, incredibly talented in her poetry, words reaches your mind and heart - and she choose an absurdly actual topic: our planet and global warming: a theme that, sadly, we all will be forced to face in our very next future. The marriage between hers style and Lord of the Isles one gives shape to a very unique and - I dare to say - superior emergent style.

                A note to the embossed-extruded sleeve, it's very particular, especially the poetries written on the spines and on one side of the vinyl.

                Unexpected release that will be heavy sought after and imitated, for its peculiar results and new exploration of intersection between borders of electronic music terroir mixed with literature.

                  One of my favorite releases from the label. Every song is majestic.

                    Waiting In Arisaig is an incredibly beautiful track, you should definitely listen to it on 33 rpm as well. Whities never dissapoints.

                      I almost skipped this one, because I'm not a big fan of poetry and spoken words in music.
                      But I gave this a second listen, a third, a fourth etc. And this turns out to be a grower. 'Waiting In Arisaig' is one of the most beautiful things I've heard this year. Those enchanting synths are stuck in my head for days now. But I must admit those poetric tracks on side B are just as beautiful, especially B2. The artwork is at high level as we are used from Whities. With the laminate embossed sleeve with vertical extruded lines, it just looks amazing. I will cherish this record from now on.
