A Look In The Local Bin: Record Store Day Edition

Record Store Day is on the horizon, and I have been writing a lot about some of the sick releases that will be found at Mills Record Company on Saturday. That said, the day isn’t just about records. Yes, it’s also about live music, bringing vinylphiles together, shopping local, coffee and donuts, and, most importantly, […]

Judy Mills’ Top Ten Albums of 2016

Solange: A Seat at the Table – Fierce and important and somehow dreamy. Nick Cave: Skeleton Tree — A document of time about grief and aging from a brilliant and talented mind. Abra: Princess — The Duchess of Darkwave writes songs on her computer then releases them on Periscope. And I’m okay with that. Physic Heat: […]

Top Ten Albums of 2016

Honorable Mention: Summertime 06 by Vince Staples. The only reason this record is an honorable mention is because it didn’t hit wax until the day before my list last year was made. Vince Staples might single-handedly save hip-hop, and he’s only warming up with Summertime ’06. 10 Princess by Abra. Technically an EP, Princess by ABRA is dark […]

A Look in The Local Bin: Replay Records

There’s something subversive and fun about Replay Records. The resurrected Lawrence label puts out some of the most beautiful 7″ I’ve seen, all while deliberately breaking genre continuity. Radkey coexists with Oils; Psychic Heat coexists with Hospital Ships. Without a single aesthetic to unite the label, Replay Records is free to experiment, to change, which […]
