Check out the video below for a look at all of the unique features of these limited-edition journals!

The release of these limited edition, hand-sewn notebooks marks the conclusion of Strange Famous Records’ year-long celebration of the 10th anniversary of Sage’s ‘Personal Journals’ LP, as well as the anniversary of Inkymole’s 2006 art show ‘If A Girl Writes off the World’ (which included two US incarnations in Manhattan and Rhode Island).

Journals will be SIGNED by Sage Francis!

These handcrafted, double-sided journals include one side for writing (Thoughts) and one for sketching (Ideas). Measuring 102mm x 146mm – fitting most pockets – each side is 7mm thick and interspersed with removable, perforated mailable postcards showing unseen artwork from the original show, 8 postcards in total. The covers are hand-embossed in gold or silver foil with a close-up section of Mole’s ‘Runaways’ illustration, and come in a range of colours, from silver to pearl white to iridescent pink.

Dan Le Sac’s solo debut CD “Space Between The Words” now available!

Dan Le Sac’s solo debut CD “Space Between The Words” now available!

An SFRstore US Exclusive, only available here!

SFR vet dan le sac (one half of the DLS Vs Scroobius Pip superduo) has dropped his debut solo album!

Written, produced and with vocals from dan himself, the album features collaborations with Emmy The Great, Merz, Sarah Williams White, B Dolan, Joshua Idehen and Pete Hefferan.

CDs will come SIGNED by dan le sac! Click here to order yours.

“With this album,” dan ventures, “working with so many different people, writing songs, it brought the producer in me back to the fore, in fact, it made me imagine never doing a gig again.” Fans of his long-standing partnership with Scroobius Pip needn’t worry, he doesn’t mean the last part – in fact they have gigs forthcoming – he’s just reveling in his creative reinvigoration.

Taking a step sideways from the percussive atmospherics that were the backdrop to Pip’s words on Top 40 albums “Angles” (2008) and “The Logic of Chance” (2010), dan embraces everything from electro-pop to psychedelia, all accompanied by an impressive array of vocal talent.

Dan le Sac’s reputation for vibrant good times at festivals and club nights is unarguable, but he’s also proved with “Space Between The Words” that he’s a lot more than simply the bloke behind the bloke with the big beard. He’s a musical force to be reckoned with and in “Space Between The Words”, an album dan le Sac has created a smart, zingy debut shot that will appeal to fans of indie, dance, hip hop, electronica and much else besides. It’s one to file alongside Metronomy, Hot Chip and Field Music as a sharply individual snapshot of modern pop’s endless possibilities.

Tracklist:
01. Long Night Of Life Feat. Merz (4:21)
02. Play Along Feat. Sarah Williams White (3:57)
03. Memorial Feat Emmy The Great (4:58)
04. Reprisals (1:16)
05. Tuning Feat. Joshua Idehen (5:06)
06. Good Time Gang War Feat. B Dolan (4:33)
07. Hold Yourself Lightly (2:44)
08. Zephyr Feat. Merz (4:59)
09. Breathing Underwater Feat. Fraser Rowan (3:57)
10. Break of Dawn Feat. HowAboutBeth (3:45)
