Record Store day Raffle Details!

Record Store Day is upon us – we’ve been getting emails galore from all of you asking if we’ll have copies the many various RSD exclusives. The long short of it is yes, we’ll probably have what you’re looking for, but we’ll probably only have a few copies and they’ll go fast. In order to give everyone a fair shot, we’re going to institute a raffle for those who get here when we open at 10AM.

If you are here at 10AM, when we open our doors tomorrow, you’ll draw a number out of a hat, and in that order have a go at 1 copy of 2 different record store day titles. So sayeth the record store owner, and so be-ith, it. See you all at 10AM!

Amy’s Top 10 of ’10

It was hard enough for me to narrow down a list to 10 albums, and even harder to choose an order. Alas, with much contemplation, here are my final choices for 2010.

#10. Belle and Sebastian- Write About Love

They’re back! And still killin’ it with those same poppy tunes we know and love, I sort of want to go skip through a field of daisies with them…

#9. Noveller- Desert Fires

Noveller, AKA Sarah Lipstate, is a phenomenal guitarist (she was a part of Glenn Branca’s 100 guitars!) who loops and pedals her way through a dreamy, delightful album.

#8. Women- Public Strain

A collage of sounds non-traditionally creating catchy tunes.

#7. Deerhunter- Halcyon Digest

I’m all about the shoe-gazey fuzz, and these guys really know how to layer it on. Halcyon Digest is pure dark, catchy, fuzzy goodness.

#6. The Fall- Your Future Our Clutter

Their 28th album, and they still take us back to the mid-80’s…meaning they hung on to their original sounds of single-chords, lo-fi, and yells, and they still sound fantastic. I was tremendously impressed.

#5. Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti- Before Today

I’m liking the addition of a full band…and still full of pop dreams!

#4. Phantogram- Eyelid Movies

Not only can I relate to the title, this album just calls for a good mood. Listening to “Eyelid Movies” puts me in a place somewhere between slipping down playground slides and dazing out on the floor of a tiki hut opium den.

#3. Thee Oh Sees- Warm Slime

Jagged yips and yaws, psychedelic garage style guitars, messy lo-fi…I’m in love.

#2. Cocorosie- Grey Oceans

These two sisters will never cease to amaze me. This album is similar to their others, but they have added a whole new array of beats that truly compliment their crazy style.

#1. Gonjasufi- A Sufi and a Killer

World music influence, intricate, booming rhythms, soothing yet powerful vocals, and a hidden track! The first time I heard “A Sufi and a Killer” I played it 3 more times that day, and haven’t stopped playing it since. With mind blowing sound, this album is positively my favorite album of 2010!

So if you’re into avant-garde-post-punk-lo-fi-shoe-gaze-fantastic-dream-fuzz…do your self a favor and pick up these albums!
