"There is something of interest in everyone of these oddball offerings" – THE TIMES
Moshi Moshi is arguably the UK's premier tastemaker label. Friendly Fires, Florence & The Machine and Kate Nash (to name but three) have all passed through the doors of their indispensable tastemaker series the Moshi Moshi Singles Club, and the second volume of their Singles Club – rounding up their latest 7"s - is released on May 3rd.
Born out of a love for the 7" back in 2006, the Moshi Moshi Singles Club has been instrumental in launching the careers of an impressively diverse range of artists. And whether viewed as the launch pad for the UK's leading alternative pop stars, or simply an unfailing 'one stop shop' for the true music-lover, the success of the Moshi Moshi Singles Club is unparalleled.
As co-founders Stephen Bass and Michael McClatchey explain, "We've always had an attachment to the 7" as a format. Releasing 7"s was how we started out and doing one-off's has a kind of instantaneous charm that appeals to us. We find something we like and we can have it in the shops on a nice-looking piece of vinyl within a matter of weeks. Doing the singles club has given us an opportunity to work with a whole range of wonderful artists we wouldn't otherwise have dealt with. And for that reason it will always have a special place in our hearts".
