Records to Covet, Search For, Hopefully Buy:
Stephen Malkmus And Friends - Can's Ege Bamyasi
A live concert recording of the Pavement frontman playing the 70s krautrock classic. A bit of an obscuro curiosity, mainly for being the most prominent instance of the notoriously slack cover artist Malkmus actually opting for mechanical precision. This is the maybe the most of a shit he has ever given!
The First Two Orange Juice Albums
If perpetual revivals over the past few years and a towering influence that's at least partially responsible for The Smiths and Belle and Sebastian haven't gotten you to pick up You Can't Hide Your Love Forever and Rip It Up by the seminal Glasgow band, you are defective. But maybe some sort of competitive scavenger hunt stakes are all you needed?
Pulp - "After You" 12"
James Murphy's production of an old Jarvis Cocker ditty, possibly thought up in a Coachella cruise buffet line, happens to be one of the least likely but most fun songs of 2013.
Astralwerks 20/20 box set
Celebrating 20 years of a label who's been a constantly flowing pipeline bringing European artists to America, beginning at a time when that sort of thing seemed much harder to pull off. Multiple Flexi-dsics full of rare tracks from bands like AIR, Hot Chip, Kraftwerk, Beta Band, and The Chemical Brothers.
KIll Rock Stars: The Compilations cassette box set
The impossible Northwest of our youth, lovingly repackaged for purchase. A flowing series of mash notes from artists unknown and very known. Mix tape fantasy romance time machine! Boggle yr mind at these track lists.
