((((( NEW ARRIVALS: CDs ))))) Belle & Sebastian, Love Is All, New Order among other brilliant gems

88-KEYS The Death Of Adam CD
*** "Includes the single 'Stay Up (Viagra)' featuring KANYE WEST. Also features REDMAN, BILAL, KID CUDI, J*DAVEY, PHONTE and more."

BELLE & SEBASTIAN The BBC Sessions 2xLP / CD / 2xCD
*** "This lovingly mastered collection of Belle and Sebastian's radio sessions for the BBC from 1996-2001 captures some glowing treasures. The band at the time rarely performed live, and all 14 songs are noticeably different from the studio versions where those exist." Includes FOUR TOTALLY UNRELEASED SONGS. The limited, deluxe double CD contains an entire live show that was broadcast on BBC Evening Session in mid-2001. This includes ANOTHER FOUR TOTALLY UNRELEASED SONGS.

*** "An album of dust-bitten ballads and troubled wanderings, the sophomore album by Isobel Campbell (who wrote the material) and Mark Lanegan is even darker than its predecessor."

DIDO Safe Trip Home CD
*** "The stunning follow up to her two multi-platinum albums."

THE DOORS Live At The Matrix 1967 2xCD
*** "The fabled Doors Matrix recordings are finally here in all their glory."

LOVE IS ALL A Hundred Things Keep Me Up At Night LP / CD
*** "The fanciful-anachro-charm of Love Is All has matured with the marriage of several members, kids and a true appreciate that love is all. A Hundred Things is a record about excitement, frustration, regret, disappointment and figuring out what's important in finding the relief of the morning's light at the end of a bad nights sleep."

NEW ORDER Power, Corruption & Lies 2xCD
NEW ORDER Technique 2xCD
*** "Remastered and expanded 2xCD sets including the original classic album plus a second disc of non-album singles, 12" mixes, b-sides, and rarities."

*** On GHOSTLY INT'L. "There’s a beating heart buried in the wintry landscape of Glider, a warm 4/4 pulse that enervates the album’s echoing, looped drones and pulls the listener swiftly through the snow. By pinning barely-there electronic beats to his wisps of guitar melody, the Seattle-based producer turns ambient music into a hybrid strain of breathtakingly intimate, small-scale dance music. A work of vertiginous sonic depth and exquisite melancholy: techno music for a dark winter’s night.”

MAX TUNDRA Parallax Error Beheads You CD
*** "An intricate mosaic of sounds and styles recognizable from the last thirty years of pop, rock, prog, disco, funk, techno, rap, metal, and soul AND MORE. One song can sometimes sound like seven different bands from totally different worlds playing at once. Just call it cosmic glitch-pop R&B."
