Newsletter & 12/6/19 New Releases :: Holidaze Edition
NEW RELEASE RUNDOWN First of all, just wanted to tell you all THANK YOU THANK YOU for an incredible Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/holiday-season-kickoff-weekend. From the RSD exclusives to the used new arrivals, you guys brought it. Thanks for your continued support!
Now that we're in the thick of December and the holiday shopping season, a lot of us are thinking back over the year that was in new music. In next week's newsletter, we'll offer up our individual Top 5 albums of both 2019 and the 2010's, but it's important to keep in mind that the year isn't quite over yet, and we've still got a couple weeks of new releases to take us into 2020.
Interestingly, two of the most anticipated releases this week are 7"s. Both Colter Wall and Better Oblivion Community Center are unveiling new tunes on the classic format, and we hope that both are teasers for upcoming full-lengths in the new year.
We've also got a handful of great reissues out this week, including re-ups of previously unavailable LPs from pop star Ariana Grande, and (quite on the other end of the spectrum), reissues of impossible to find extreme metal classics like Possessed's iconicSeven Churchesand Dark Angel'sDarkness Descends.
The full list of new titles out this week is below! Have a look-see.
HOLIDAY HOURS As we sneak up on Christmas, we wanted to go ahead and share our holiday hours. We'll be holding some extended hours right around the holiday, but of course we'll be closed on Christmas day:
GIFT CARDS This is also probably a pretty good time to remind you that WE'VE GOT GIFT CARDS. If you're like me, you'd rather eat your shoe than answer the question, "What do you want for Christmas?" Well, we make it easy on you. Send your loved ones our way and we'll set them up with the PERFECT RECORD. (Or, let us set YOU up with one to give to your loved ones!)
USED NEW ARRIVALS UPDATE While you guys came in and did some WORK on our used new arrivals over the weekend, there's still plenty of good stuff left to be had. Oh, and we also put out a classic #tUSEDay haul for you this past Tuesday as well. Here's a little glimpse at what's left. Come dig!
Thank you all for such a warm response during Wise Blood's soft opening weekend! Keep in mind that we'll be holding normal hours at the bookstore, but next weekend (December 13-15) we'll be celebrating the shop's GRAND OPENING with three days worth of events. RSVP and find all the detailshere.
