- Best Coast, Crazy for You. I think my initial enthusiasm for the lo-fi/garage/surf revival had waned slightly by the time this came out, so I never picked it up last year. But it’s a fun record of summery pop and at a RSD ‘special price’ I was pleased to grab it. UPDATE: Hogie *loves* dancing to this song, he kicks like crazy whenever she sings the chorus!
- Bill Callahan, Apocalypse. He keeps pursuing his own idiosyncratic version of the singer-songwriter, and this new one will I’m sure be interesting again. Baby’s Breath MP3, via The Needle Drop.
- Vivan Girls, I Heard You Say 7″. A RSD limited edition of single from their latest record.
- 13th Floor Elevators, Wait For My Love/May The Circle Remain Unbroken 7″, remastered by Sonic Boom, on sweet green vinyl. May the Circle Remain Unbroken MPS, via The Decibel Tolls.
- Earth, Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light 2LP, on mottled green etched heavy vinyl, should be awesome. Sorry I missed them in London last week.
- Swans, My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky. I never owned a Swans record before, though they’ve been on my radar for a long time. Interested to find out whether I’ve been missing out all these years…
- Low, C’mon. It’s Low, so you kind of know what to expect, but I’ve heard only good things about this new one.
- Sleater-Kinney, Dig Me Out and One Beat. These two just because they were there…
