Angular Recording Corporation’s Spotify Playlist The Quietus presents a supplement to Angular Records numerical catalogue: A Spotify playlist of the songs that shaped the label's founders.

Estate agents and homeowners in a certain London postcode have much to thank Angular Records for. It was their label, Angular Records, that a few years ago put New Cross on the map with a series of legendary gigs and a terrific run of new, early singles and compilation tracks from the likes of The Long Blondes, Bloc Party and Art Brut.

Following the inspiration of Factory Records, everything to do with the label is given a catalogue, from the website (ARC 018), fetching enamel badges (that are, and celebrate, ARC 050) and occasional ceremonies at Ordnance Survey trig points (ARC 001, 010, 020, 040). Listen to ARC 057, a playlist of Angular releases, here.

Now partnered with Domino Records, Angular continue to put out some of the best new music you'll find in this land and beyond, from These New Puritans (Angular will be releasing their second album, currently being recorded with Graham Sutton) to Crystal Stilts, brass ravers Gyratory System, Navvy, The Vichy Government and The Lodger.

So it's with great pride that The Quietus brings you an addendum to ARC 057 in the form of Angular head honchos Joe M and Joe D's Spotify playlists of the songs that influenced them.
