New Digs | First Quarter 2017

I've been slow to bring home records to start the year. I'd like to think I've started to become a bit more selective, but the truth is I've just been too busy to look. I HAVE been clicking 45's off the ol' ebay watch list, so stay tuned as I'm sure I'll be sharing some of them soon. Here's a quick look at what has caught my eye. Some limited edition new releases and a handful of quality used sounds have found a home with me.

New Digs | Early August 2016

Some of these actually came home in July :)

It's been a busy Summer! So many new (and old) sounds spinning on the tables and filling the home with good vibes. Between ebay finds, new releases, local spots, and a haul in Chicago while on a work trip, I've more than covered the sound spectrum and been diligent in hitting the bins with persistence.

New Digs | Mid November 2013

I didn't realize until I typed out all the album names, but I totally missed the boat by not featuring all self-titled albums... Only one of these records actually has a title, but it's a good one! Here's a peek at some of the latest acquisitions that have found a loving home:

Lazarus - S/T (Bearsville, 1971)

This album is probably a little more folk-y than I had hoped, but lately I've been learning to appreciate the nuanced sounds and relaxed tone of the genre.


Dungen - Skit I Allt (Mexican Summer, 2010)

Sadly, I had kind of fallen off with following Dungen. Dungen's 2004 release Ta Det Lugnt and their 2006 album Tio Bitar were my jams back when they dropped. Skin I Allt was a limited edition vinyl release (only 3000 copies) and had been sitting in the bins at my local shop for a while, and I finally decided to bring it home and give it a listen. This album is a little more relaxed that what I remember from them, but still really good! Apparently, I've grown with their sound. Also, I've always enjoyed not being able to understand what they are saying as it allows the mind to wander a bit.


Jamul - S/T (Lizard, 1971)

This Lp was a longtime want after bringing home one of their 45's a couple years ago. I don't see too many albums from this label, and I can't believe no one has resurrected the Lizard Records logo for t-shirts and other record nerdery. I really have a soft spot for solid, hard rockin' blues albums from this era.


The Rationals - S/T (Crewe, 1969)

This is a face melter! Definitely add this garage rocker to your want list. I bought it on a whim at a recent record fair that passed through town and it more than lived up to my expectations.


Crystal Mansion - S/T (Capitol, 1969)

Honestly, I wanted to like this album more than I do. I got it for cheap, so it's not that big a deal. Having said that, there are a couple moments where things are working.


Fuzz - S/T (In The Red, 2013)

Woah! I've never really been a huge fan of Ty Segall, and in some weird way, his involvement with this almost scared me away. However, the Black Sabbath lover in me couldn't deny the evil, sludgy sound that this band conjures. I'm a tad salty to miss out on the black velvet cover, but it's all about the tunes, right?!
