Nite Flights
Sendelica

The godlike-etc Scott Walker's song from The Walker Brothers' final album together is re-worked by our good friends Sendelica, and then their version is re-worked in a 'tabla mix' by Astralasia's Swordfish - which is nice. More news soon.

Us and Them
Fading Within The Dwindling Sun

Fading Within The Dwindling Sun
Us and Them

On our first 10" release, Us and Them have put together a five-tracker that means a great deal to me - reinterpreting some of The goddess-like Sandy Denny's best moments on record; only Britt from Us and Them could do this, in my opinion, and she does it beautifully - i hope you'll enjoy it too.

Ascending Scales
The Honey Pot

Fruits de Mer Records' 100th vinyl release will be a rather special double LP from Crystal Jacqueline, Icarus Peel, the rest of The Honey Pot and some surprise and very special guests, including Nick Saloman, Dick Taylor, James Lowe, Judy Dyble and MANY more!

TBA

One last surprise for 2016 - a split-single. Fruits de Mer gets into bed with a hugely-respected independent label that will wake up the morning after with a serious hangover and feel deeply ashamed at what it's done. More news soon.

Moloko+

Changes

Fruits de Mer's year-end members club freebie will be a follow-up to 'Fashion' - another CD's worth of new covers of songs written by the Thin White Duke, with contributions by a number of FdM regulars, and a smattering of new names just to keep you on your toes; we're calling it 'changes' at the moment, but that might change depending on what the final track listing looks like - more news soon

BOWIE meets THE ACTION
Sidewalk Society

Bowie meets The Action
Sidewalk Society

California's Sidewalk Society return after far too long away from FdM with a four-track EP that combines covers of songs by The Action and 60s era-Bowie; Sidewalk Society are a US band that really gets the sixties UK sound, I've loved them since i heard their version of 'Song Of A Baker' back in 2008.

COLTRANE

Coltrane
Superfjord/Earthling Society

Classic John and Alice Coltrane compositions - together on a 7" - not your usual FdM single. Superfjord and Earthling Society take them (and Fruits de Mer) to new places, and then Astralasia and VHSHead join the party on a bonus 70 minute CD that comes with it
'Coltrane' was voted by FdM's club members their single of the year for 2014 - a wise choice
