The second album from Wicklow band Enemies is the sound of musicians moving further away from the obvious with aplomb. Where Enemies’ first album, the
INCREDIBLE: Listen to the premiere of Enemies’ Embark, Embrace in full — we’ll have pre-orders up for the North American release soon!
We’re thrilled today to announce something that is literally years in the making: We’ll be releasing Toe’s catalog on vinyl, worldwide, for the very first time ever!
Last fall, we released the band’s newest effort, The Future Is Now, on vinyl & CD — and we’ll be adding to that by releasing the following on vinyl as well:
- Songs, Ideas We Forgot
- The Book About My Idle Plot on a Vague Anxiety
- New Sentimentality
- For Long Tomorrow
Toe is a band that’s an absolute mainstay in our music collection, a staple of this niche (and well beyond), and one of the most important bands (to us, anyway) of the last decade so we’re pretty pumped about this, you guys!
We’ll have more details involving release dates, pressing info, pre-orders, etc. soon. Hope you’re all as excited as we are!
We’ve got a few package deals and ordering options available — check it all out in the Topshelf store!
We’ve also added the leftover tye-dye Topshelf logo shirts from the summer.
And lastly, we’ve added a new The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die shirt (designed by Kimi Hanauer of Adventures).
Rooftops - Raft Easily
Album: A Forest Of Polarity
Genre: Math Rock
UGH. Such a damn good band. Definitely one of the best math bands ever. I found out about these guys by meeting someone who worked for Topshelf Records, the guys that Rooftops are signed to of course, and he told me all about them and gave me one of their stickers. Good stuff, I am so glad I met that dude. Anyway, this band is phenomenal, awesome math riffs and drums and occasional vocals; nothing could be better. Please, please, please check these guys out!

Gearing up for our first ever eBay auction! Rarities, OOP, test presses for every release in our catalog. Going up soon! (Taken with Instagram)
Pre-orders for Duck. Little Brother, Duck!’s phenomenal Don’t Take Our Filth Away and Sirs’ equally impressive debut self-titled LP are both now available for preorder! We have several different package deal options and new merch for both.
I can’t tell you how friggin’ stoked I am for everyone to hear these two records in full. If you’re familiar with either of their respective output to date, then you know what to expect — but both bands have taken past efforts and elevated them to a new level. Both records immediately showcase each bands’ impeccable ability to write a complete, well-formed record from end to end.
If you’ve followed the label for any period of time, you surely have a decent grasp on what it is we’re into and doing over here. These are two records that will most definitely stand up as milestones in our catalog and we’re really proud to be putting them out! So, head on over to the Topshelf store and check ‘em out!
