Newsletter & New Releases 9/20 :: End of Summer Edition
NEW RELEASE RUNDOWN
The last new release Friday of summer is sizzlin' as the sun, with new heat brought by Brittany Howard, M83, Blink 182, and Oh Sees, not to mention local guitar hero Samantha Fish.
For starters, the new Brittany Howard (of Alabama Shakes fame) comes to you on an exclusive indie vinyl edition AND a deluxe 180 gram vinyl version. (Because of delayed shipments this week, we're expecting this to arrive tomorrow first thing in the morning!) We've also still got some BONUS 7" singles leftover from the preorder campaign, so we'll toss one in with purchase til they're gone.
As mentioned, this week also brings the vinyl release of the newest Oh Sees LP, the appropriately titled Face Stabber. This record is two LPs worth of unhinged psych-garage-monster-prog that would make its papa Hawkwind proud.
Local favorite-turned-blues-star Samantha Fish releases her new full length, Kill or Be Kind this week. This is Fish's first record on the legendary Rounder label, and we've got it on both LP and CD for you.
Pop punk icons Blink 182 return with Nine, their second album featuring former Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba, while other new music from the likes of Hiss Golden Messenger, Chastity Belt, and Mudhoney make for a ton of new ground to explore this weekend.
We've also got the new career-spanning Type O Negative box NONE MORE NEGATIVE. This release has been in the works for a long time now by the folks over at Run Out Groove, and they've done a fantastic job. This is a must for any fan of the band or dark, heavy tunes.
Check out the full list of new releases below for more info on all this week's offerings!
Our next live in-store event is going to be September 27th. We're honored to host performances from students of the Rebel Song Academy.
