v/a COLD HEAT: Heavy Funk Rarities 1: 1968-1974 2xLP
*** RECOMMENDED Totally insane comp of ultra-rare, ultra-dirty hard funk tunes compiled by Stones Throw with the half of some friends. Highly recommended.
v/a MINIMAL WAVE TAPES 2xLP
*** "Peanut Butter Wolf has always had a love affair with that 80's new wave, Post punk and DYI Sound & scoured the archives of NY's Minimal Wave, a small indie label dedicated to reissuing lost and rare gems from around the World."
DISMEMBERMENT PLAN Emergency & I 2xLP+MP3
*** BACK IN STOCK! Hooooooly smokes! We can barely keep this one on the shelf. Welcome back, Travis Morrison.
BRUCE HAACK Farad: The Electric Voice 2xLP
*** "Legendary electronic weirdo Bruce Haack (1931-1988)! "Farad: The Electric Voice specifically focuses on tracks using Haack's self-made vocoder. This was the one of the first truly musical vocoders, and first to be used on a pop album, pre-dating Kraftwerk’s Autobahn by several years."
IRON & WINE Kiss Each Other Clean LP+CD / CD
*** "While Beam's early albums were sparse, intimate solo affairs, Shepherd's introduced layered textures and poly-rhythmic sounds that allowed his lyrics to spring to life. It's only natural then, that Beam took this sonic collage and built upon it for his new album, Kiss Each Other Clean."
WANDA JACKSON The Party Ain't Over LP / CD
*** "This collection of vintage and contemporary country, gospel & rockabilly covers was produced by fan/friend Jack White in Nashville w/ members of My Morning Jacket, the Raconteurs & Dead Weather among others."
JAY DEE Welcome 2 Detroit 2xLP
*** BACK IN STOCK! Happy birthday, Dilla. We miss you.
LAST ELECTRO ACOUSTIC Miles Away 2xLP
*** MADLIB! "Miles Away is Madlib's tribute to a series of his jazz heroes from the 60s and, mainly, 70s, with suites, waltzes, ballads, modal-numbers and swinging funk w/ electric flute, moog and synths stand aside accordions, sitars and vibraphones."
MADVILLAIN Madvillainy 2xLP
*** BACK IN STOCK!
SONIC YOUTH Confusion Is Sex LP

KANYE WEST My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy 3xLP
*** BACK IN STOCK!
YOUNG JAZZ REBELS Slave Riot 2xLP
*** MADLIB! "Slave Riot is a rather chaotic affair, gunning to top speed almost immediately and rarely lets up its frenetic pace. To put this in a Sun Ra context, think of this as Madlib's Black Mass, as opposed to Last Electro's Sleeping Beauty."
