wistful synthesiser sounds, increasingly adding taut, fizzing sequencers, nu-synth-disco settings and icy soundscapes to the mix on 2013's Pale Green Ghosts and 2015's Grey Tickles, Black Pressure, the latter The Guardian described as, "variously agonising, hilarious, uplifting and moving: another bravura display from a unique songwriting talent." Now, with his fourth solo album,
Love Is Magic, Grant has continued evolving, creating his most electronic record yet, in collaboration with Benge (Ben Edwards), analogue synth expert/collector and a member of electronic trio Wrangler, Grant's collaborators earlier this year under the collective name of Creep Show on the album Mr Dynamite. Produced by Grant, and engineered by Benge at his Cornish studio, the diamond-hard, diamond-gleaming Love Is Magic, "is how I've always wanted my records to sound,
but I didn't know how until now," Grant says. He also called on Paul Alexander of Denton, Texas maestros Midlake, renewing a working relationship that began on Queen Of Denmark. "Paul's trained in theory and harmonies and was responsible for a lot of the backing vocals," Grant enthuses. "He comes up with interesting angles
rather than the obvious and plays some of the best bass lines I've ever heard." Besides the quest for sound, "the lyrics are exactly as I want them to be," says John. "They're not just the doom and gloom of the past, they're a snapshot of everyday life - the ridiculousness, the pain, the deep longing."

CANCELLATIONS / ORDER AMENDMENTS
I had put off getting Agricola for quite some time due to owning and loving Caverna. I worried the games were too similar, but thanks to Agricola's cards the two have enough differences to both be worth owning. If you have any interest in worked placement games I recommend Agricola.
Arrived well packaged
Although the item was not dispatched within the first few days, customer service responded to my email within a matters of hours giving me an update, and the item was dispatched a few days later.

I hadn't seen much about this company online and wasn't sure about the service, from the little info I could see on them, if I could trust the products I was buying and also if the delivery would be safe and efficient.
I am glad to say that I shouldn't have been concerned, as everything couldn't have been much better. Arrived timely in great condition. Very pleased and I will return again to buy more very soon. Many thanks
I must admit I purchased these fully
Expecting them to be cancelled due to the price being so low but here I am 9 days later with my order and I couldn’t be happier. The items were in a different warehouse which caused a couple of days delay but hey when you are saving £60 per item it’s worth the wait!
They did offer a full refund if I wasn’t happy with the delay but I stuck it out and glad I did. Will be using them again for sure.
Excellent service, great product in mint condition, quick delivery and superb communication... I will be revisiting yachew in the future to order more items for my record collection
Absolutely love my loungefly Hocus Pocus Binx hand bag he is so cute and soft. He was packed well and arrived super quick 😍🐈⬛ 🖤❤
I wanted these dolls to create customised dolls for my son and they were cheaper here than anywhere else! Came quickly and we're well packaged. Will definitely be coming here for future purchases!
Very cheap price and very good delivery from the company. First time buying but will be returning again
