New Arrivals #346

Sorry, we're a couple days late blogging about this one, the new list we posted Friday, you can find it here if you haven't thoroughly perused it already. Actually we posted it Saturday morning in the wee hours, it took a much longer time to do than usual thanks to some $%@#! computer issues.

Records Of The Week:

AUN "VII" (Important) cd $14.98
For you dronedoom aficionados, the latest from Quebec's ultra heavy Aun, who incorporate a lot of lovely melody and mystery amidst their glacial shoegazing grind, for fans of SUNNO))), Nadja, and also Aluk Todolo... features guest drummer Away from Voivod!!
DARA PUSPITA "1966-1968" (Sublime Frequencies) cd $16.98
We fell in love with this '60s girl garage group from Indonesia when PlusTapes reissued 'em on 3 now out of print cassettes, thankful Sublime Frequencies has now put out a cd of all that stuff, so incredible!
TY SEGALL "Melted" (Goner) cd $11.98
This local boy brings it yet again, on his best yet, taking his "way blown out lo-fi garage radness" to a new level, and going in other cool directions to boot!

And here's a heads up, you know the list #345.666 we did in-between lists #345 and #346, the "black metal special"? Well, look out for our second biweekly 'in-between list' list, going out this Friday, another round-up of a selected items in stock from recent updates, from a certain genre or two (avant-rock and drones this time 'round). But this time, experimenting further, on list #346.5 we intend to also go ahead and review a few cool new arrivals that showed up this week, so it'll be more of a 'mini' regular list, really. We probably won't do that every time with these 'interstitial' lists, um, 'cause it's a lot more work, but we'll see how it goes this time! So stay tuned...
