Highlights & New Arrivals | 6.2.17
Some great jams on the playlist week. Lots of fun exotic cuts to start us out and then we settle into a nice surf and hula-billy vibe. We'll be getting in every single American Epic release from Third Man over the next couple of weeks so we included some fun cuts from the collection. There is bluesy homage from The Allman Brothers Band — my dad raised me on a steady diet of southern rock from Gregg, Dickey, and company so I felt obligated to pay respects. We also have some great upcoming punk and stoner metal releases and we close out on a low note with some classic gothy dream pop.
New arrivals this week from:
Zack Keim — First Step (Colored Vinyl) | One of Get Hip's first folk series releases featuring the wunderkind leader of the Nox Boys with a nice change of tempo.
Dion — Kickin' Child: Lost Columbia Album 1965 | First recorded in 1965 this is Dion at the height of 60's counter culture. Unearthed and released by the scions of rock education at Norton.
Funeral Advantage — Please Help Me | Synthy dream pop that scratches that hard-to-reach new wave itch for us.
Elder — Reflections Of A Floating World (Bone / Orange Vinyl) | Huge cosmic prog metal from the city of brotherly love. Perfect for getting spacey.
Sisters of Mercy — Light & Shadow: Demos & Alternate Recordings (Import) | Alt. vocal tracks, demos and rare recordings from the goth icons.
See you lot around the shop!
