We’re back with the 6th release in the Dinked Archive series – a 15th anniversary reissue of Malcolm Middleton’s classic third album, A Brighter Beat. Released in 2007, A Brighter Beat was Middleton’s first album following the break-up of Arab Strap and found the songwriter at a career high for his finely-tuned bittersweet indie-rock. Having never been reissued, A Brighter Beat is somewhat of a rarity on vinyl, making this reissue all the more essential. A Brighter Beat is reissued on 6th May 2022. (Please note new release date)
The Dinked Archive Edition of A Brighter Beat is on 500 limited silver LP with an exclusive alternate sleeve with art from David Shringley and a 7” single with 3 bonus tracks.
