Happy Turkey (or Tofurkey) Day, folks!

We'll be closed tomorrow for the holiday, but hope to see you on ("Black") Friday!
We should be getting some cool new stuff in for the weekend, including the new "Gristleism" Throbbing Gristle soundbox (i.e. the TG Buddha Machine)...

Sorry, there's (at least one) mistake we just found on our last list, #333, that needs correctin': Turns out the new cassette and cd-r on the Sonic Meditations label we highlighted isn't called what we thought it was, not exactly. We got the artist name/album title switched around, whoops! It's "Glacier" by Sounding The Deep, not "Sounding The Deep" by Glacier. If you look at the cover, you can see why we made this error, it says Glacier much bigger than anything else, and it more of a logo-y lookin' font. Also, if you ask us, Glacier is a better name for a band, but anyway, sorry for the confusion.

New Arrivals #333

Halfway to 666! You'll find the full list here. Please do.

Records Of The Week, four of 'em:

Ben Frost "By The Throat" (Bedroom Community) cd $16.98
Harrowing, epic, intense electronic music, like a soundtrack to some wolf-haunted horror film.
Marduk "Wormwood" (Regain) cd $14.98
Maybe the best black metal album of the year, from this elite Swedish horde. Twisted and MASSIVE.
Home Blitz "O.ut O.f P.hase" (Richie) cd $13.98
Another definite year-end fave, noise rock guys unleashing their inner power pop demons!
Fred Bigot "Mono/Stereo" (Holy Mountain) cd $13.98
Holy Mountain reissues on cd a couple of classic raw, fuzzed out, stripped down, psychedelic TECHNO 12"s.

Party time!

We mentioned it on our last list, here's a reminder for local folks: we'll be hosting a little after hours party here at AQ tomorrow night! So please come by to hang out, socialize, listen to music, maybe buy some music, drink some beer, eat some chips, play some arcade games...

The partying starts around 9ish, going 'til oh 11:30 or thereabouts. We normally close at 10 on Thursdays, so we'll be staying open late, and we'll also put lots of free credits on our Joust, Tron, and Rastan machines (Ghosts 'n Goblins is unfortunately out of order at the moment). We'll provide some refreshments but you're also welcome to BYOB.

And bring a few bucks with you for dessert, 'cause the creme brulee cart is going to be stopping by too.

New Arrivals #332

Better late than never, just a reminder that back on Friday we put out another New Arrivals list, you can find it on our website here if you haven't already looked it over!

Records Of The Week:

Leyland Kirby "Sadly, The Future Is No Longer What It Was" (History Always Favours The Winners) 3cd $26.00
Triple compact disc of gorgeous hazy washed out warbly ambience from the man behind The Caretaker and V/VM, epic sprawling haunting loveliness.
King Kong Ding Dong "Youth Culture Index" (self released) cd-r $7.98
They had us at KKDD! Killer cd-r of woozy, warped spacey jangly indie doom flecked folk pop, Silvester Anfang meets Animal Collective meets True Widow maybe...
Broadcast "Investigate Witch Cults Of The Radio Age" (Warp) cd/lp $14.98/$14.98
Breathtaking, occultic new collaboration between long time aQ faves Broadcast and The Focus Group, a mind warping sound collage art pop concept album!
