Prefuse 73 – The Forest of Oversensitivity – 12″ Preorder

Guillermo Scott Herren never stops working. Next up from this prolific producer is a 12″ EP on Warp featuring some reworkings of a few tunes off his most recent album “Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian”. Have to admit I wasn’t the biggest fan of that album, but the sound clips for this new EP sound […]

Bibio – Ambivalence Avenue – LP Preorder

Folk-hop? Hippie-hop? Hip-folk? I don’t know what you call this type of stuff, I think someone might have once coined the phrase “indietronica” but I hate that tag almost as much as those three I just made up. This stuff falls somewhere in the spectrum between strummy, sunny folk tunes and glitched-out, down-tempo beats. All […]

Coalesce – OX – LP Preorder

Relapse has posted pre-orders for the new LP from Coalesce. There’s little doubt that the music on this album absolutely slays and with a die-cut insert and embossed gatefold jacket to house it in, well, this is basically an essential addition to your collection. Color breakdown is 400 on 180-gm black vinyl, 500 on a […]

Murder By Death “In Bocca Al Lupo” LP Reissue

Murder by Death have officially reissued one of their best albums ever, 2006’s “In Bocca Al Lupo”.  The downside, however, is that they decided to NOT replicate the original double 10″ with like a zillion fold-out panels.  Instead, they went simple with a single 180 gram LP on Flamed Orange vinyl.  If you don’t know […]

Sigur Ros – Agaetis Byrjun – LP

Well, not sure where this came from or why but this is easily the best price I have ever seen on this amazing double LP from Sigur Ros. Not sure if this is the original press, the FatCat UK repress or a new domestic pressing… Any way you slice it, its a tasty pie at […]

Wayward Sons / Sam Lowry “Julianne” 7″ Preorder

Vinyl Collective just launched a preorder for an upcoming split 7″ by Wayward Sons (William Elliott Whitmore’s new moniker) and Sam Lowry.  Both of these dudes play stripped-down, Americana-style folk, and the concept for this record sounds awesome.  The subject is a love-triangle murder ballad.  Each artist is doing a song from the perspective of […]
