((((( NEW ARRIVALS: VINYL ))))) Goblin, non-U.S. Warp releases, & plenty of disco

*** "Ten-track triple LP version, featuring a selection of the best tracks from the 2CD version. Artists on the LPs include: Schaeben & Voss, Justus Kohncke, Reinhard Voigt, Thomas/Mayer, Burger/Voigt, Jurgen Paape + Boy Schaufler, Superpitcher, Mikkel Metal, DJ Koze, Kaito. Two of the tracks (Mikkel Metal & Kaito) are entirely exclusive to this LP."

BROADCAST Extended Play 12"
*** Early hard-to-find Broadcast EP available again! Don't Sleep on it!

CAN Zhengzheng Rikang LP
*** "First release(?) of these studio demos, recorded 1968/69 at Schloß Nörvenich. Good sound quality with Malcolm Mooney on vocals, similar to Dlay '68."

CEEPHAX Volume Two 2xLP
*** "Third full-length from Andy Jenkinson, younger brother to Squarepusher. An old school acid sensibility crossed with the energy and innovation of the famous Universal Indicator acid series, plus a melodic and moody experimental side that is revealed in mellower moments. The style is basically all electronic/dance styles, i.e. braindance."

GOBLIN Profondo Rosso LP
*** BACK IN STOCK! "The original soundtrack recording for the 1975 cult masterpiece by horror director Dario Argento -- one of the most terrific and intense scores ever and sold millions of copies. Gatefold sleeve. 180 gram HQ vinyl."

GOBLIN Suspiria LP
*** One of their more terrifying and cohesive scores, Suspiria is Dario Argento's 1976 masterpiece that almost made me, Forest, barf while watching. "Transcendental symphonic rock (compound time signatures, ornate instrumentation, vainglorious tone, melodramatic structure, self-aggrandising solos, etc)."

*** The stand out dreamy track from Yellow House but with a completely different mix than the album version. The b-side is also an alternate mix, this time it's "Easier."

JUSTICE D.A.N.C.E. Remix 12"

*** The fourth Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas 12" on Eskimo in their typical and highly-acclaimed Nordic disko style.

LOSOUL What Radio 12"
*** "Tune your ears to these two new epic Losoul tracks! Almost 23 minutes of 'oh so sweet' Losoul music including persuasive percussion and typical Losoul groove and dynamics. Sweet basslines and even sweeter, delayed keyboard motives."

PINEAPPLES Come Closer 12"
*** "A re-issue of one of most in-demand Italo-disco records -- a true party disco gem conceived with the minimal setup of a drum machine and a Korg synth -- a big track in the late '80s Chicago house scene, frequently played by the Hotmix 5 crew."

STUDIO West Coast Pt. I & II 7"
*** "A two-part reworking of one of the standout tracks from the album, West Coast. Studio 's music has a broad appeal, with influences like Can and Neu, The Cure and The Smiths and shades of old school house, dub and disco." Limited to 1000.

STUDIO West Coast 2xLP
*** "Finally given a full-fledged release after a limited release disappeared from the racks last year, Studio's debut is a collection of strung-out, dreamy electronic pop music that will appeal to fans of the new slo-mo Italo disco. Consider it the missing link between The Cure and Lindstrøm touching on Can, Neu, Happy Mondays and The Smiths in their creation of an Afrobeat-dub-disco-indie-pop adventure."
