Playlist of the Week


With the rush of wedding season this month (congratulations to the newly engaged this past holiday) we think it’s key to have some pumping music in the studio to keep our spirits high. Our favourite albums at the moment have a menacing edge & raspy guitars – an array of neo-psych, grunge and punk… and we’re loving every bit of it!

mercury prize nominees 2016

It’s that time of the year again! The Mercury Prize 2016 nominees have just been announced and naturally we’ve been playing all the albums here in the studio.

Our favourites include the above – Radiohead (who have earned their record-breaking fifth nomination), Michael Kiwanuka and Savages who we’ve seen perform live, previous winner Anohni and David Bowie’s final album which is tipped as favourite to win.

We love them all equally in different ways so it will truly be a tough one!

Playlist of the Week


We’ve been listening to a few cheeky recommendations these past few weeks and these are the albums that particularly stood out. We loved Allah-Las self-titled album which was like listening to a modern day version of The Shadows – it’s got a great summer vibe so keep this one for your picnic in the park. Night Beats album ‘Who Sold My Generation’ is more upbeat and revives that psychedelic rock trend that put us in mind of Tame Impala or Unknown Mortal Orchestra – which is always a good thing! The last album ‘Come All Sufferers’ by Gabriel Bruce was dark, poetic and melancholy – think Queens of the Stone Age meets Leonard Cohen.






Playlist of the Week


We’ve been listening to A LOT of Radio 6 Music recently and it’s helped us discover some great new stuff – old gems and new releases.
Our favourite tunes they’ve been playing at the moment are from the albums seen above, consisting of Spring King, The Last Shadow Puppets, The Coral, Money, Bill Ryder-Jones & Savages.

There’s a bit of a ‘Coral’ theme going on as we’re dead excited about their forthcoming album (esp. loving their latest single ‘Chasing the Tail of a Dream’) as well as the dreamy vibes from their ex-member Bill Ryder-Jones’ solo album ‘West Kirby County Primary’.

We’ve also just found out that Savages are touring with Bo Ningen this Feb which we definitely have to get tickets to…
So basically… a great start to 2016!

Playlist of the Week

We like to consider ourselves as big music fans here in the Tuppence Collective studio, although too often we end up listening to the same old albums and playlists. When we heard the nominations for this years BBC Mercury Music awards we decided to use this as an excuse to introduce some new bands, artists and even genres into our I-tunes library.

Our favourite picks from this years awards include an eclectic mish-mash of punk, pop and experimental sounds (which we’re not even sure how to define) but its safe to say we’ve got every mood and vibe covered with this lot.

If we had to pick we would definitely recommend ‘Slaves’ and ‘Benjamin Clementine’ as the most surprising and refreshing albums of the year. Well worth a listen!


Autumn Playlist

Music plays a big part of our days working in the studio. Depending on what mood we’re in or what we need to get done we could be listening to anything from Alt-J’s new album to the Dolly Parton’s “Best of”. More than anything we love creating playlists to get us through the week. Now that autumn has arrived we thought we’d share our favourite seasonal tracks with you to get you through the rainy days ahead.

We love listening to new music so if you have any suggestions drop us a tweet and let us know!



October Playlist


Following on from the wedding show we have been working on our next few designs which  we’ll be launching before Christmas! Expect flowers in coral, William Morris foliage and gold foiling.

Sketching for hours in the studio in this wet weather means some uplifting music to keep our spirits high is needed, of course with a cup of tea too…

Here’s a pick of our favourite albums at the moment.

Playlist of our week


This week has been pretty hectic. The final designs have all been sent to print and the last changes are being made to the website. So to keep us calm we needed a bit of help from Thomas Newman and friends. This has been the soundtrack to our week.

How many do you know?
