CAMILA FUCHS – Kids Talk Sun LP (Felte) yellow vinyl
CAMILA FUCHS is a Lisbon based duo & this 2021 album was produced by Pete Kember of SPACEMEN 3. Epic electronic pop with some experimental touches that will appeal to fans of THE KNIFE, BJORK etc…
CLOUD NOTHINGS – The Shadow I Remember LP/CD (Carpark) spectral light whirl vinyl
Pretty great 2021 album from CLOUD NOTHINGS, who take a return trip over to Electrical Audio to replicate their signature layered-yet-pummeling sound, resulting in a welcome, no-nonsense collection to concise punk songwriting. Featuring contributions from BRETT NAUCKE and MACIE STEWART (of OHMME), this should again appeal to fans of JAWBOX, DRIVE LIKE JEHU and HUSKER DU. No surprise here: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
DISAPPEARS + STEVE SHELLEY + WHITE/LIGHT 2LP (Vampire Blues)
Limited edition 2LP/45RPM release of these epic collab jams from 2009 featuring the first line-up of
DISAPPEARS, SONIC YOUTH drummer Steve Shelley & SONIC YOUTH sound man Jeremy Lemos’ WHITE/LIGHT band that also featured PINEBENDER guitarist Matt Clark. This is very much like DISAPPEARS but more “out” which heavy grooves. Comes in a bootleg style sleeve. We’re the only store in town that has these so get em here! RECOMMENDED.
GENEVA JACUZZI – Lamaze LP (Mexican Summer)
Geneva Jacuzzi is a L.A. based musician & performance artist & “Lamaze” is a collection of recordings from the early/mid 2000s reissued again by Mexican Summer. Hints of 80s dance, new wave & early hip-hop production with great analogue sounds that will appeal to fans of minimal wave, vaporwave, Italo disco & artists like Saada Bonaire, Patrick Cowley, Nina Hagen etc…RECOMMENDED!
PJ HARVEY – Stories From the City, Stories From the Sea LP (Island)
One of our favorite PJ Harvey records is finally available again. Some of her finest songs ever from the early 2000s featuring a great duet with Thom Yorke.
PJ HARVEY – Stories From the City, Stories From the Sea – Demos LP (Island)
MADLIB – Sound Ancestors (Arranged by Kieran Hebden) LP (Madlib Invasion)
“Sound Ancestors” has been out in the world streaming for a few months now & we’re very excited to be able to finally stock these in the racks. This isn’t the first collaboration between MADLIB & Kieran Hebden aka FOUR TET but it’s certainly the most fully realized one. Hebden acts more as an arranger or editor for MADLIB’s beats & samples. The album has a great flow & bounces from psych-rock breaks to soulful vocal passages, a decent variety of guitar samples & some jazzy excursions all combined with MADLIB’s insane knack for digging out the coolest beats. Hebden’s thoughtful arranging gives everything enough room to breathe & it really grows on you with repeat listens. AN INSTANT CLASSIC!
MENAHAN STREET BAND – The Exciting Sounds of Menahan Street Band LP/CD (Dunham) limited green vinyl
Great collection of throwback cuts from these Daptone staples, whose dusty & warm instrumental soul harkens back to artists like THE DELFONICS, THE STYLISTICS, and ISAAC HAYES but with a more leftfield psych twist. Excellent stuff!
NIGHTSHIFT – Zoe LP/CD/TAPE (Trouble in Mind) color or black vinyl
NIGHTSHIFT is a melodic post-punk band from GLASGOW. With nods at early Rough Trade singles & angular groups like THE SLITS, RAINCOATS, THE FALL & more
STEREOLAB – Electrically Possessed: Switched On Vol. 4 3LP/2CD (Warp) #’D mirriboard edition for both formats; LP is very limited!
We are all blessed to receive a fourth installment of the mighty STEREOLABs “Switched On” series after over twenty years since volume three, “Aluminum Tunes”. Featuring rare cuts from 1995 up through 2008, this is an expansive and wide-ranging collection that is sure to remain floating around in your head. MAGNIFIQUE!
NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE – Way Down in the Rust Bucket 4LP/4LP deluxe edition/2CD (Reprise)
2021 is set to be possibly the biggest year yet for Neil’s archive releases. We know of at least 3 that are coming & there are likely more. This 4LP set features the earliest live recordings of the “Ragged Glory” tunes in front of an intimate crowd in 1990. The recordings are raw & excellent sounding. RECOMMENDED!
