Mastodon “Crack The Skye” Deluxe 2xLP Pre-order

Insound has posted preorders for the deluxe edition of Mastodon’s hotly anticipated Crack The Skye album. We aren’t sure what warrants the $43 price tag on this thing, but hopefully it is well worth it. We do know that it is a 180gm double LP cut at 45rpm and also comes with a 7″ single […]

Boris – Smile, Live In Prague 2xLP

Hmmm… hot off the heels of last year’s live Smile release comes this… other live Smile release. The setting is moved from Wolf Creek to Palace Akroplis in Prague, but this recording is still from the Smile tour so you know what to expect: utter aural annihilation at the hands of Japan’s fiercest metal trio […]

Fridge “Happiness” 2xLP For Free!!

Usually when you get free records as part of some promo deal, they are crap, but this one just happens to be really good.  While supplies last, you can get a free copy of “Happiness” by Fridge (the Four Tet side project on Temporary Residence) with any other purchase at Vinyl Collective.  They have plenty […]

Beirut “March of the Zapotec” and “Realpeople Holland” 2×12″

Beirut’s new double EP is really, really good.  The first half, “March of the Zapotec” was recorded with an actual Mexican funeral band, while “Realpeople Holland” features Zach sort of experimenting with electronic music, kind of like his own little Postal Service project.  You can pick up the double 12″ at,, or directly […]

Neko Case “Middle Cyclone” LP

Indie rock and alt-country darling Neko Case has a brand new record coming out.  The “Middle Cyclone” LP seems to be mostly floating around the UK (or in the US at pretty dumb prices), but Normann Records has it for only £12.99.  If you’re in a hurry to grab this one, this is the best […]

Pan•American – White Bird Release LP

Another fine release on Kranky. Pan•American is none other than Mark Nelson, who happens to be the singer/guitarist for a now defunct band called Labradford. Pan•American takes the minimal soundscapes of Labradford and injects them into his own unique brand of ambient-dub-techno-whatever. If you don’t like this type of stuff, this album isn’t going to […]

Boomkat just started carrying the new LP by Parisian beatmaker Onra, “1.0.8”.  You’ll definitely like this if you are into Dilla, Madlib, Flying Lotus, etc.  It sounds like those guys, but with a bit more Asian and electro influence.  Anyway, it’s only £10.99, and you can grab a copy at [Audio clip: view full […]
