((((( NEW ARRIVALS: CDs ))))) Juno, The Roots Of Chicha

*** Music from the motion picture starring that kid from Arrested Development and Superbad playing -- guess what -- an awkward teen! This time he gets a girl pregnant. But the movie's really about her. Anyway, it contains "19 totally boss, sing-along songs" with a big dose of KIMYA DAWSON.

v/a THE ROOTS OF CHICHA: Psychedelic Cumbias From Peru CD
*** "Chicha started out in the late sixties, in the oil-boom cities of the Peruvian Amazon. Cumbias Amazonicas, as they were first known, were loosely inspired by Colombian cumbias but incorporated the distinctive pentatonic scales of Andean melodies, some Cuban guajiras, and the psychedelic sounds of surf guitars, wah-wah pedals, farfisa organs, and moog synthesizers."

JOHNNY CASH The Best Of The Johnny Cash TV Show 1969-1971 CD
*** "The very best of Johnny's 1969-1971 variety show that ran 58 episodes.

SIA Some People Have Real Problems CD
*** Anti-music said "...upbeat, quirky, and achingly gorgeous, featuring incredible songwriting and...SIA's stunning vocals."
