Grouper - Hold / Sick - Limited Australian Tour 7"
Some shop news
September 05, 2010 - 11:27 PMNOTE that we will be closed Monday for Labour Day!
You can now spend the time you would have spent at the shop flipping through the pages of Taschen's book Extraordinary Records!
I sent out the fourth issue of the Vortex Specialty Mailing List today. Sorry it took so long between issues. In it, I mentioned releases from Grouper, Mississippi Records, Boris, My Morning Jacket, Muslim Gauze, and a few others. You can read it here, though I won't be archiving them all. If you want to get them in your inbox, sign up to the Specialty mailing list (the second list on that page).
I also mentioned there that some of the items listed would be available tomorrow. This was before I realized it was a holiday. I've now changed it to Tuesday. You can get them Tuesday.
If you read Issue 4 you'll see that I'm very enthusiastic about some upcoming Grouper releases and reissues. Harris also offers up this 40 minute November, 2009 performance, Live at St Giles In the Fields, London. Noobs may find it a bit harsh at first but if you keep listening, it becomes rather hypnotic.
One LP I somehow forgot to mention in the newsletter is Lightning Bolt's Wonderful Rainbow. It's finally been repressed on vinyl in a very limited qty. In their 4 star review, AllMusic Guide says, "this album is like having a beautiful girl hit you repeatedly over the head with a baseball bat. Imagine all the best aspects of Fred Frith, Derek Bailey, the Ruins, Slayer, and Ornette Coleman all thrown into a blender together. Then imagine them on speed. This one's a keeper." Don't know Lightning Bolt? Allow me to introduce you:
Yes, the studio versions of both of those tracks are on this album.
We'll re-open Tuesday and remember our DVD & Blu-Ray Sale begins Thursday at 10 AM. Have a great holiday!
DVD Sale and Marissa Nadler Exclusives Arrive!
