Mike Slott “Lucky 9Teen” 12″ EP

On Lucky 9Teen, Mike Slott brings us over 20 minutes of woozy, synth-inflected beat workouts for smoke-filled dancefloors and/or living rooms. This one already sold out at Boomkat, but you can still pick up a copy in the United States at turntablelab.com, or juno.co.uk for those across the pond. [Audio clip: view full post to […]

Bullion “Say Goodbye To What” 7″

Speaking of Bullion (see Pet Sounds In The Key of Dee below), apparently the guy has a smokin’ new 7″ out and it is in a tiny edition of only 40. One hazy, finger-snapping tune per side, this will set you back £5 at bullion.bandcamp.com. [Audio clip: view full post to listen]

Circa Survive “B-Sides” 7″

We don’t normally blog about emo bands here, but this one is actually listenable, plus their vinyl is always hotter than the fires of hell.  Circa Survive is offering up a limited edition 7″ of b-sides for only $5.  It comes on clear vinyl, has a cool chipboard sleeve, is limited to 1,000, and the […]

Skeletonwitch – Breathing the Fire – LP Preorder

The new album from the ‘witch is nearly ready to be unleashed on the world, and you can stake your claim on a red vinyl version limited to 100 right now through the […]

Beach House “Teen Dream” LP+DVD Preorder

What would we do without labels like Sub Pop? Without them, I wouldn’t even know where to begin sifting out the good indie rock from the twee, asinine bullshit currently clogging the blogspots. No surprise then that the newest from Beach House on Sub Pop has already garnered some prejaculated praise from critical sources – […]

Sunburned Hand of the Man “A” LP

Not a lot of info to be found about this release currently. Maybe that’s because of the impossible to google album title, or maybe because no promo copies were sent out at all. What we do know is that this is Sunburned’s second album with Kieren Hebden aka Four Tet acting as producer. We also […]

Purling Hiss “s/t” LP

Recording for Permanent Records in Chicago as Purling Hiss, this is the debut solo LP from Birds of Maya guitarist Mike Polizze. Permanent knows a thing or two about blown-out, psychedelic rock and roll, so the fact that they are the ones releasing this should be enough motivation to spend your hard-earned monies. If you […]

Grouper / Roy Montgomery – Split LP

New vinyl from Grouper, bound to disappear quickly, so act accordingly. This is a split LP – one side featuring some live tunes with Roy Montgomery from a show with Grouper earlier this year and the other side featuring new material from Liz Harris herself (could it be these two new tracks on her Myspace?). […]

Hot Snakes “Suicide Invoice” LP Reissue

So, here’s the deal.  There’s this guy named Rick Froberg, he used to lead this pretty legendary band Drive Like Jehu, and now he’s in this other band that everyone loves, Obits.  Well, in between those two bands, he also helped lead another band that was a pretty big deal, Hot Snakes.  Their 2002 album, […]

Doomtree “S/T” 2xLP

Minneapolis’ Doomtree has just released some leftover copies of their ultra-limited self-titled album, previously only available at live shows.  Ferociously independent and original, Doomtree is easily the second-best hip-hop crew in Minnesota (they’d be the best if those core Rhymesayers members weren’t so damn hard to top).  The collective features members like P.O.S., Dessa, Sims, […]
