12/21 Weekly Newsletter & New Release List

Impossible to believe that it’s the week of Christmas, but here we are. Since you subscribe to this mailing list, I’m going to guess that you’ve got some wax and/or gift cards waiting under the tree for you. If you’re still needing to get some shopping done before the holiday, we’ve got you covered. From records to shirts to books and games, we’re proud to be your one stop last-minute shop. 

There are a few new releases of note hitting the floor just in the nick of time, including two releases from mewithoutYou, Untitled EP and Untitled LP. We’ve also got the new Mariah Carey, Caution, on wax (which pairs perfectly, we suspect, with her iconic Xmas record--also available!) 

Experimental pop producer Sophie’s acclaimed 2018 release Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides finally gets a vinyl treatment this week, and to round it out we’ve got four new reissues from Siouxsie & the Banshees and Queen’s The Game back on wax. Check out the full list of new releases below!

We’ve also done our part in stocking up on all of our consistent best sellers, so it’s fair to say that the store is loaded right now. There’s a good chance we’ve got what you’re looking for. And hey, if not there are always GIFT CARDS.

In the spirit of giving, we’ve decided to run a drawing for $150 in store credit! The ballot box will be open tomorrow, 12/21 through 12/31. We’ll draw the winner on January 1st. Happy New Year. Get yourself here and enter.

Everybody’s crazy for year-end lists, and we were sad to have to leave out a ton of great stuff from our lists last week, so we decided to throw out some more favorites from 2018 to make sure that we cover all the stuff we loved this year.

As far as events go, we’re super excited to announce that poet Shayla Lawson will be in the shop on Thursday, January 17th for a reading and discussion. Her new book, I Think I’m Ready to See Frank Ocean (Saturnalia Press, 2018) explores the poet’s personal connections to Ocean’s work, and in doing so, intricately comments on our emotional interactions with music and pop culture. She’ll be reading from the book and discussing her work. Local Kansas City poet Jermaine Thompson will also read, and we’ll have live music to finish up the night. Mark your calendars, and pick up Shayla’s book in-store!
