Drift is a proudly independent record shop. Many of the releases we stock have limited independent record shop editions; coloured vinyl, extra tracks, deluxe packaging, bonus vinyl... The record labels and music makers know how important the indie shop scene is in breaking and supporting talent and this is their way of recognising and supporting us. Oh, and don't sleep on them, they are always limited quantities.
Good to meet you. Why not sign up to our weekly newsletter? We talk about all the new releases every Thursday, plus early bird deals, Dinked Editions and limited exclusives.

Luluc released their debut album Dear Hamlyn in 2008, the songs having been written following the death of Randell's father. Dear Hamlyn eventually gained a large group of influential admirers. Peter Blackstock co-founder of No Depression Magazine, wrote of the album, "The most beautiful album I've heard in ten years."
In 2011, Nick Drake's producer, Joe Boyd, also taken by Dear Hamlyn, invited Luluc to feature in his Nick Drake tribute tour. They contributed the tracks 'Things Behind the Sun' and 'Fly' to the live tribute album, 'Way to Blue: The Songs of Nick Drake' in 2013. Luluc went on to sign with Sub Pop Records and release the critically acclaimed albums 'Passerby' (2014) and 'Sculptor' (2018). This edition of 'Dear Hamlyn' is the first time it has been available on vinyl.
