New Vinyl Arrivals for the Week of 7/30

This week’s arrivals list feature some interesting hip-hop/rap selections, but is relatively short. Look for a fuller slate of releases next week. Here’s what has been coming in and going out on the shelves:       *The Birthday Party – Live 1981-82: Australian culture in the 80s may have unleashed Crocodile Dundee, Men at […]

In on a Motorcycle/Out on a Motorcycle: the Mountain Goats’ All Hail West Texas Reissue

  If every song by the Mountain Goats quoted Biggie Smalls, we might have peace in the Middle East. “The Fall of the Star Running Back” does just that, weaving lyrics from “Big Poppa” with the story of a running back, who ends up selling LSD to a police officer and doing time. The All […]

New Vinyl Arrivals for the Week of 7/23

If you want these, we got ‘em:   * Tortoise – Millions Now Living Will Never Die (Reissue): The first generation post rockers get the reissue treatment for one of their best albums. The title is from a Jehova’s Witness pamphlet and the music sounds like it’s jazz from another planet. Check it out if […]

xx Coexist

The xx – Coexist

With the release of their self-titled debut in 2009, the xx finally struck success. It was an instant hit among indie pop lovers, and gained commercial success when America’s Next Top Model, Cold Case, and other various television shows found use for their new and catchy music. The xx has come a long away since […]

The Flaming Lips – The Terror

  I suppose it was inevitable that the Flaming Lips’ confetti-cannons-for-everybody approach to music couldn’t last forever. Sure, it was fun to watch front man, Wayne Coyne, crowd surf in a giant inflatable ball and drip fake blood from his forehead, but after a band releases music on a flash drive stuck in the middle […]

Yo La Tengo Fade

Yo La Tengo – Fade

Yo La Tengo’s thirteenth album, Fade, came out in mid-January, so it isn’t exactly breaking news that the indie stalwarts from Hoboken have a new LP on the shelves. It is, however, a cause for celebration. Fade is an album that shows its bloom after repeated listens, and as such, proves itself worthy of continued […]

She Him Volume Three Robins Egg Blue Vinyl

She & Him – Volume 3

This week M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel return with their much anticipated album, Volume 3. She & Him are one of the few bands that can pull off sounding ridiculously retro without being accused of overdoing it because it’s who they are. In that regard, 3 can be compared to the duo’s previous two releases. […]

Nahnee Bori Place

Giveaway: Nahnee Bori “Place” Vinyl

Nashville, Tennessee. Sight unseen I first moved there in the summer of 2010. I loved the city then, and I still love it now. Despite being drawn away a couple of times, Nashville’s magnetism kept pulling me back. Its people are warm, its culture is rich, its food is delicious, and best of all: it […]

The Evaporators – Gassy Jack and Other Tales

In ’90s when he was bombarding unsuspecting artists with his off-the-wall interview stylings (the man was a deep-googler before Google was even a thing), few if any might have placed Nardwuar the Human Serviette as some sort of niche hip hop icon as the new millennium’s first decade drew to a close. Yet that’s exactly […]

Ty Segall Band – Slaughterhouse

When first cracking the seal on Slaughterhouse, the album’s more aggressive musical aspects have a way of overwhelming the listening process, initially defining the entire tone of the record as violent and fuzzy regardless of the individual subtleties exhibited by each song on the release. But with repeat listening sessions serving to soften the shrill […]

El-P – Cancer 4 Cure

“It’s like a fresh start on a new world,” chants El-P in the chorus of Cancer 4 Cure‘s “Works Every Time.” In some ways the entire album represents a fresh start for the Brooklyn-based MC and producer, though the same could be said of practically everything the tirelessly inventive Producto has signed his name to […]

Quintron and Miss Pussycat – Swamp Tech

  The distance between physically experiencing live music and attempting to replicate that same energy force on a recording is as prominent with Quintron & Miss Pussycat as it very well might be with any other musicians on the planet. To soak up the rotating bliss of Quintron’s Drum Buddy invention, or dance in time […]
