Highlights this week include the Scott Walker DVD and that big Pixies box as well as new things by Venetian Snares, Tiny Masters of Today, and Omna, as well as old things from Big Star, The Avengers, and Bert Jansch.
This week FIVE new releases drop from our own KILLER PIMP imprint: Aidan Baker & Thisquietarmy (which is selling quite quickly); Blood Money; Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words (Album of the Week according to Aquarius Records in San Fran); Envenomist; and Ulterior. Additionally the TURBO PIMP imprint finally launches with the second full-length album from S.O.L.O. (aka Michael Wells of Greater Than One, Tricky Disco, GTO, etc,...)
Look for new singles and EPs this week from The Church, Dirty Projectors and new full length releases from Mono, Fever Ray, Gui Boratto, Lotus Plaza, and KMFDM as well as a release of old material from Fridge.
New releases should be arriving in stores this week from Tim Hecker, My Cat Is An Alien & Zaffiri, Odd Nosdam, Bishop Allen, Architecture In Helsinki, plus a collection of Wheat out of print albums and a reissue of Calexico's Spoke on vinyl.
Flying boldly in the face of economic crisis, this week is nothing less than MASSIVE in terms of new releases, with new things due from Beirut & Realpeople, BJ Nilsen & Stilluppsteypa, Psapp, Zombi, Alec Empire, Morrissey, Mountains, and many, many more.
The second week of February is a pretty slow week for new releases but expect stuff from Guided By Voices side project Boston Spaceships, a new Beat Konducta release from Madlib, and a new 12" from DFA's Death from Abroad series by Cage & Aviary.
