RECORD STORE DAY: Gemma Ray ” Lights Out Zoltar!” Reissue

Record Store Day 2020 exclusive! “Lights Out Zoltar!” by Gemma Ray has been out of print on vinyl for too long, but you can git yourselves a limited edition pink vinyl 10th anniversary pressing with revamped art, plus DL card, at any of the ‘drop dates’ starting this Saturday August 29th, and then on Sep 26th and Oct 24th. What some wise folks said at the time:
“This album is a rare treat indeed” – John Doran (BBC/QUIETUS)
“Had Phil Spector forced his girl groups in a more noir-soundtrack direction, this might’ve been the result. Ray has a truly impressive feel for vintage pop flourishes, layered to lavish effect. And all those details are what you’re supposed to be paying attention to, right up until the blade hits your back.” SPIN
“Three months after I first got the album I’m still marveling at the way Ray has synthesized a whole slew of retro references into a cinematic psychedelic sound. Ray’s sound is like one of those Willy Wonka Gobstoppers: it’s massive and composed of layer upon layer of aural tastes and colours” – VANITY FAIR
“An eerie aural kaleidoscope that conjures up thoughts of what an album by Mary Weiss of the Shangri-Las produced by David Lynch would have sounded like” – WSJ
