It's been a long journey, but a good one.  People, we're nearly there now and on May 27, The Pastels fantastic new album, Slow Summits will finally be available from Domino Mart and all good outlets.  We are extremely excited to announce a last minute addition for all first wave purchasers.  

During the making of Slow Summits, The Pastels listened to a lot of music; they always do, but what? We think we have the answer because Stephen and Katrina have compiled a small edition mix cd called Insane Energy Drop which is the perfect companion to the making of the record. At this stage, we're not prepared to reveal anything that is on it, but it's a beautiful Pastelesque mix of friends, fellow travellers and odd corners of their record collection. We're quietly confident that no non-Pastel will be able to identify every single track, but the thing is, you never know…

For the person that gets them all, or gets closest we are offering a signed high quality print of the cover art, something special from The Pastels own archive, and one record of your choice from the Domino catalogue.  To get into the competition we recommend that you pre-order your copy of Slow Summits immediately from Domino Mart, or your local record shop then send us what you think the tracklisting of the Insane Energy Drop mix is. Entries should be sent to: by the 24th June.

Good luck! 

Disclaimer: CDs will only be available in selected UK indie shops & with worldwide Dom Mart orders. Don’t worry if you don’t get your hands on a CD there will be a way for everyone to enter, just watch this space…
