What's New


Sometimes a great album slips under the radar.  Here are a few records we don’t want you to miss:

Sneaks “Gymnastics” – $11.99 CD / $16.99 LP
A dancey 14 minute post-punk album full of minimalist vibes that begs for repeated listens. The only instruments you will find here are a drum machine, a bass guitar, and a very light touch of synth alongside Eva Moolchan’s calm and cool vocal delivery.  Click here for more info.  ~Bobby

Magnolia Electric Co. “Trials & Errors” – $14.99 LP
This live album from dearly departed Jason Molina’s “Magnolia Electric Co.” lineup recalls the same fuzzed-out energy of prime-era Neil Young and Crazy Horse. The original vinyl pressing was limited, but Secretly Canadian got it back in print as part of their Molina reissue campaign which kicked off a couple of years ago, so catch yourself up if this slipped past you in favor of his frenzied studio output from those years.

John Cale “Fragments Of A Rainy Season” (reissue) – 2xCD $14.99 / 2xLP 28.99
A live, solo (Cale is on piano and, occasionally, guitar) recording that highlights his best and most accessible songs.  The sparse arrangements turns the focus to the strength of his songwriting.  A perfect (re)introduction to this former Velvet Underground member’s songwriting genius.  Click here for more info.  ~ Dave
