AGAINST ME! New Wave CD
*** The new album featuring some smash hits.
CARIBOU Melody Day CD
*** The debut single from Caribou's upcoming full-length, containing both a FOUR TET remix and a non-album track. Snappy. Majestic. Brilliantly kaleidoscopic.
NICK DRAKE Family Tree CD

*** Several years ago, a version of Slint featuring members of Tortoise and lead by Slint bro Brian McMahan got together to record music.

JUSTICE (Cross) CD
*** "Justice's monster beats, massive hooks, thunderous drums, and near-religious determination to demolish dance floors cast them in a light no contemporary can catch. Huge slabs of beats, brutal strings (!), and cathartic release is what these disco pop gents are all about."

STEPHEN STILLS Just Roll Tape CD
*** Recorded after a Judy Collins session in 1968, Stills wanted to lay down some of his newer songs. The tape was "lost to the wind" for 40 years as CSN put their first album soon after this session. Some songs you may know, some not.
