As the music industry winds down for the Christmas break, pickings are fairly slim in terms of new releases, to this week I’ve had a look at some exciting vinyl that’s available for pre-order from some our favourite bands, new and old.

Number one comes from the awesome Errors. Their new album Have Some Faith In Magic, due out in the new year, is brilliant and this is the bands first single to be taken from that album available on 7” and digital download pre order yours here. Release date: 23/01/12.

Second choice this week is the third self released project by legends The Flaming Lips and it’s exclusive to Rough Trade Shops. The Bolt EP is limited to just 2000 copies on psychedelically coloured vinyl and features four brand new tracks all ranging from six to eleven minutes each. Pre order your copy here. Release date: 19/12/11.

Next up is a four way split that has been grabbing our attention for some weeks now, and its finally available to buy this week. Marshall Teller Records present this limited 12” featuring four talents set for big things in 2012; Gross Magic, The History of Apple Pie, Echo Lake and Novella. Listen to the Gross Magic track below and order your copy of the record here.

Number 4 this week is from TOY who have been supporting The Horrors this year and look set to join their peers in 2012 as a must see band. I’m seeing them support The Horrors tonight actually (review to follow). ‘Left Myself Behind’ is the debut single by the band and limited to just 300 copies on 12”. Pre order here for release on 23/01/12.

Final choice this week is from New Order. Lost Sirens is a mini album that features 8 tracks recorded during the sessions for the bands last full album Waiting For The Sirens To Call, and features a line up of Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook, Stephen Morris and Philip Cunningham. You can pre order the album here and stream track ‘Hellbent’ below. Release date 19/12/11.
