Record Store Day is A Month Away

In case you missed it, Record Store Day announced their official list yesterday, and it’s packed with exclusive releases, first time on wax presses, and special editions of some powerhouses. That’s to be expected. Entering its tenth year, Record Store Day is doing up their biannual (Black Friday counts too!) with some of the most […]

Watchtower Gets Mathematical

Black Friday has come and gone, leaving in its wake (sort of) emptied stores, holiday gift lists partially completed, and plenty of vinyl-philes happy. While the Record Store Day Black Friday list was expansive and rocking, there were plenty of releases that were as exceptional (perhaps even more so one could argue). One of those […]

Black Friday Preview: Parade of Singles

Black Friday is this Friday. I’ve written about some of the exclusive releases you can find (here), and now I want to write about some more exclusives. Some of the coolest releases on both Black Friday and Record Store Day are pressed on 7″. This year is no exception. From picture discs to colored vinyl, […]

Black Friday With Mike Doughty

The weather’s getting cooler, the leaves are falling, large men are smashing into other large men for large sums of money. So that can only mean one thing: Thanksgiving and the holiday season are almost upon us. And after we stuff ourselves with turkey/tofurkey, we can fight the masses for deals on Black Friday. At Mills […]

The Sword Returns with Purson and From Beyond

This Thursday, The Sword will return to Lawrence with Purson and From Beyond for a night full of thick fuzz and psychedelic meandering. The Sword’s guitar forward riffage unfurls like a heavier version of Medusa. Purson stays more in the vein of Jefferson Airplane’s psy-folk. And From Beyond keeps a Black Sabbath groove to their […]

Record Store Day Favorite: Jazz Dispensary

So Record Store Day 2016 has come and gone. And after celebrating one of the coolest days for vinylphiles (and subsequently recovering), I think I have to say, without a doubt, one of my favorite releases was The Jazz Dispensary box set. The four LP boxset (all set on colored vinyl) boasts a cosmic journey […]

Bombino’s Latest Joins The Guitar Funk World

Bombino is a guitar wizard. His licks have all the pluck of Jil Jilala (though Algeria separates the two band’s home countries) and all the hook of The Dirty Projectors. This aesthetic similarity makes sense becauze Dave Lonstreth of The Dirty Projectors coproduced Azel with Bombino. The result is an album that is full of aural […]
