It'll be just like being at the festival - we promise! 





 

Staff Picks:



Tis the season of sunburns, BBQs, noticeable lack of personal hygiene, and emptying six packs whilst sitting on the stoop. Celebrate the warmth and sunshine with some new tunes! Mary has picked out some choice *~*summer jamz *~* for your listening pleasure. 

Just look for the labels! Here are just some of her picks:



Here are a couple of things you saw last week -- but we think you need to see them again! 

Dare To Be Stupid is the first collection of Ryan Duggan/Drug Factory Press poster art. It spans Ryan's work from 2006-2014 and it even has a few posters he did for saki, including the show poster from his 2012 art show, Time To Make The Doughnuts. It's kind of crazy to look through this book and recognize so many amazing posters that we've seen around town, or in friend's apartments, or even (in many cases) our OWN homes! Ryan is a one-of-a-kind artist and Dare To Be Stupid is a MUST-OWN book. To sweeten the pot you can buy one of our latest saki shirts (with Ryan's Heavy Cat design) along with Dare To Be Stupid for $30! The shirt is still good for 5% off your purchase at saki (excluding artwork) whenever you wear it in the store!






We now carry Earlove earplugs! Seriously, these things are amazing.




Ticket giveaways: 



Buy a release from any band playing an upcoming Empty Bottle, Schubas or Lincoln Hall show and we can add you to the guest list. Stop in or give us a call! Keep an eye out for announcements for eligible Metro, Constellation, and Bottom Lounge shows too!

Adam's Pick of the Week: Myriam Gendron - Not So Deep as a Well

Holy crap - Dorothy Parker's poetry set to song - this is gorgeous! I didn't know much about Myriam Gendron before buying this album, and to be honest, I still don't - but the description on the back (written by Byron Coley) pretty much sells it:

Parker's poems have occasionally been turned into songs over the years, but they have never been subjected to such a thorough investigation as the one Myriam Gendron provides on Not So Deep as a Well. Myriam's delivery and arrangements are wondrous. Her guitar playing has the same spare, rhythmic circularity as Leonard Cohen's 1960s recordings, creating harmonic density inside of a small, rich palette of emotional colors. Her vocals have a a still and haunted quality that suits the material beautifully.

Maybe one day I'll know more about Myriam Gendron, but for now this is enough. I can 99% guarantee you'll love this.

Now for your regularly scheduled newsletter...

Thanks to Rob Karlic, Mac Blackout Band, Nones, Young Marshall, Jaime Rojo, and Treasure Fleet for playing this weekend! We had a great time, and we hope you all did too!

We've got a lot going on this week, so let's just go in chronological order...


First we have the second screening of White Mystery's That Was Awesome TOMORROW (Wednesday) at the Logan Theatre! We are one of the sponsors so we've got tickets for sale AND to give away. Here's the deal:


- spend ANY amount of money and we'll enter you in a raffle for a FREE pair of tickets to the movie.


- spend $25 and we'll just GIVE you a FREE ticket.


- buy a ticket for $10 from us.




On Thursday we have a live taping of the You Me Them Everybody podcast in the store with everybody's favorite host, Brandon Wetherbee. The show is co-hosted by Esmeralda Leon with guests Alicia Sowisdral, Meredith Kachel, Gabe Liebowitz and Meaghan Strickland. If you laugh loud enough you'll be able to hear yourself later on when the podcast goes up. You won't have to listen to close to hear Brandon though... he's the loud one with the microphone.


We also have tickets to give away for Other Lives at Metro on the 22nd. Get a pair with ANY purchase in the store. That's it - just buy something and you get a FREE pair of tickets!


Dare To Be Stupid is the first collection of Ryan Duggan/Drug Factory Press poster art. It spans Ryan's work from 2006-2014 and it even has a few posters he did for saki, including the show poster from his 2012 art show, Time To Make The Doughnuts.

We're still very excited about our latest shipment of Featherproof Books, including titles from Daniel Higgs, Brian Costello, Tim Kinsella AND Jessica Hopper's new book, The First Collection Of Criticism By A Living Female Rock Critic. Featherproof has a pretty incredible selection of titles to choose from and we're so glad we're able to carry them. 



Here's a few other things we were talking about on Instagram, etc. this week!




We brought in some new titles from Chicago/San Francisco label, Grabbing Clouds! Everything these guys put out is great. They find some of the best bands from Chicago, San Fran, and even Japan!


The Mac Blackout Band tore it up for Rob Karlic and Mac Blackout's closing reception. Rob and Mac's art is still up, but it will come down at the end of the month, so come check it out before it's gone! 


One more reason to see this art show before it's gone: you'll have the chance to take your picture in this creepy-as-hell carnival cut-out that Rob and Mac made!


We now carry Barry Phipps' (The Coctails) solo album, The Town, as well as Barry's handmade selvedge denim LP bags!


A few recent restocks and recent arrivals, heavy on the hip-hop (old and new), rock and soundtracks!

THE BOSS... continued. So many of you snatched up our copies of these Bruce Springsteen reissues that we're just going to continue the sale. 


 

Staff Picks:

Anna's Pick of the Week: Django Django - Born Under Saturn


Django Django (the d is silent) bring the indie rock with tambourine and vocal harmonies. Think Beach Boys meet Black Keys. Their 2012 self titled debut was a rockin' summer album and this album is more of the same. Perfect for sunny afternoons.



Adam's Pick of the Week: Kenny Knight - Crossroads

I don't think I can say it any better than the label who reissued this, Paradise of Bachelors, so here it is: The first-ever reissue of the private-press country-rock rarity by Colorado auto body painter, Marine, and garage band lifer Kenny Knight—he played in the original ’60s Black Flag—Crossroads recalls a homebrew American Beauty-era Grateful Dead in its world-weary, low-key mood and indelible songwriting. Faded, anxious, melancholy, and beautifully woozy, this out-of-time document belies its 1980 release date. Produced in cooperation with Numero Group, it features liner notes by writer and collector Michael Klausman and Kenny himself."

Check out the album's standout track "Whiskey" for a little... taste.


Jake's Pick of the Week: Pond - Man It Feels Like Space Again

The sixth release from Pond, little brother to the massively huge Tame Impala, rarely slows down, offering up track after track of blown-out guitar tones, drifting synths, and even the occasional sound effect of atom bomb explosions. Glam rock, spacey chamber pop, and fuzzy psych guitars are all found here in healthy doses. Plus one of the songs is called "Heroic Shart", so what's not to love? I've listened to it a billion times and you should too.

Bruce Springsteen or Stevie Nicks? Why not both!?

Here's a fun way to enjoy our current 20% off The Boss sale: Play your Bruce LPs at 45rpm and enjoy your new Stevie Nicks record! Sometimes it's more like Dolly Parton, but we think the video in the link above is more convincing, and more fun.

Just In: Restocks and Recent Arrivals!

A little something for everyone as we approach the weekend. We've had a lot of people ask for classic hip-hop vinyl this week.

If rap's not your thing we've got old and new Metz, Mind Spiders and Mean Jeans, as well as the non-RSD versions of a few RSD 2015 favorites!


Ryan Duggan's Dare To Be Stupid and Heavy Cat saki shirt for $30!


In celebration of Ryan Duggan/Drug Factory Press' new book we're offering a combo deal for Dare To Be Stupid and our latest saki shirt, with Ryan's 'Heavy Cat' design! You can purchase the shirt AND the book together for $30. That's $8 cheaper than they would be normally, and your saki shirt is still good for 5% off every purchase (excluding artwork) when you wear it to shop in the store.

saki newsletter 5/12/15!

Boy oh boy, lots of stuff to tell you about for this week so let's just get right to it! First, we are proud to be a sponsor of the second theatrical screening of White Mystery's movie, That Was Awesome! After the success of their first screening on 4/20 the band is showing their psychedelic dark comedy again, but this time on 5/20, because they didn't want to wait a whole year to do the whole 4/20 thing again... We will be giving away a few tickets via a raffle (one entry with every purchase, even if you just buy a $1 used record), or you can get a FREE ticket with a $25 purchase in the store! We'll also be selling tickets for $10 if you hate gambling and/or buying records. We have a limited number of tickets for you, so get on this one fast! The screening will be at the Logan Theatre on May 20th at 4pm. 

Since our ticket deal is a little convoluted, let's break it down one more time:

- spend ANY amount of money and we'll enter you in a raffle for a FREE pair of tickets to the movie.

- spend $25 and we'll just GIVE you a FREE ticket.

- buy a ticket for $10 from us.


If you're not sure when to stop in and take advantage of that deal, may we recommend you do it THIS WEEKEND? We've got a packed lineup with Rob Karlic and Mac Blackout's closing reception and a Chicago Singles Club in-store! The Mac Blackout Band and Nones will be playing live sets for Rob and Mac's closing party, and it will be your last chance to check out their photography and illustrations, or take your picture in their carnival head-cut-out-thingy (who knows the real name for those...) if you didn't do it on Record Store Day. Then, on Sunday, we have a Chicago Singles Club in-store with Treasure Fleet, Jaime Rojo and Young Marshall. Apparently it's Midwest Action approved!

As if we didn't just give you all the reasons you need to come hang out with us this week, we've got a few more, and the first one is a BOOK - a HOZAC BOOK to be exact! Dare To Be Stupid is the first collection of Ryan Duggan/Drug Factory Press poster art. It spans Ryan's work from 2006-2014 and it even includes a few posters he did for saki, including the show poster from his 2012 art show here, Time To Make The Doughnuts. It's kind of crazy to look through this book and recognize so many amazing posters that we've seen around town, or in friend's apartments, or even (in many cases) our OWN homes! Ryan is a one-of-a-kind guy and artist and Dare To Be Stupid is a MUST-OWN book.


This might be the most we've talked about books, maybe ever, but we also just got a huge shipment of Featherproof Books, including titles from Daniel Higgs, Brian Costello, Tim Kinsella AND Jessica Hopper's new book, The First Collection Of Criticism By A Living Female Rock Critic. Featherproof has a pretty incredible selection of titles to choose from and we're so glad we're able to carry them.

Staff Picks:

Robyn's Pick: The Clean - Anthology

You can get all of The Clean (four LP's) for $35 WITH downloads IN a fancy box that ISN'T ugly. I would bring this not-ugly box with me to Asia but it's too heavy for my suitcase because it's filled with all of the good music. "If you drew a tree of New Zealand rock, The Clean would in all likelihood be the trunk. Resting on the roots of legendary Kiwi punks Enemy, The Clean debuted in 1978, and were instantly something of an oddity in their homeland, where the rock scene was dominated by bands covering American and British music." (Pitchfork). But also in the words of Nick Rouley, "Don't be a stupid dirtbag, get [The] Clean."

Jake's Pick: Chastity Belt - Time To Go Home

Time to Go Home is a beautifully composed surf rock record with twangy electric guitar and oddly fitting bored vocals. Tracks like "Why Try" and "Trapped" are both shimmy-worthy surf rock jams and "The Thing" is a certified head-banger, a screaming ode to the John Carpenter horror flick of the same name. "Joke" contains an infectiously catchy chorus, all draped over warm and easy reverb. This album definitely does the trick for those still rubbing our eyes from winter and thawing in new summer warmth.




Anna's Pick: Best Coast - California Nights

Fans of Best Coast may fondly remember jumping around to their 60s power pop fueled debut, but their third album California Nights definitely reflects their growing up. Still fun, beachy, guitar driven pop, but a little tighter and cleaner around the edges. Get this album now so you can sing along during their set at Taste of Randolph Street Fest.


Adam's Pick: V/A - Ho-Dad Hootenany Vol. 2

It's always a good day (and an expensive one for me) when we get a big shipment from Crypt Records. In addition to a few more Back From The Grave series reissues last week, we also got Vol. 2 of Ho-Dad Hootenanny. Compared to Back From The Grave, this LP is pretty tame, some would even call it frat-rock. We're talking about early 60's frat rock though, so these are all fun dance floor stompers of the garage/soul variety. Truly great stuff!





Ticket giveaways: 



Buy a release from any band playing an upcoming Empty Bottle, Schubas or Lincoln Hall show and we can add you to the guest list. Stop in or give us a call! Keep an eye out for announcements for eligible Metro, Constellation, and Bottom Lounge shows too!
