Weekly New Release Sale @ saki:



This week we're offering the legendary Scott Walker's latest effort, Bish Bosch, How To Dress Well's Total Loss and Captured Tracks' reissue of Naomi Punk's The Feeling!


Scott Walker - Bish Bosch CD or LP



The legendary singer & experimental musicians' latest is a tauter but more colorful experience than 'The Drift,' with greater emphasis on processed, abrasive guitars, digital keyboards and thick silences. Let's get weird!







How To Dress Well - Total Loss CD or LP



All the elements of Love Remains are still here - the noisiness, the moodiness, the layers of swarming voices - but stand alongside other complex elements: the elegant weeping arcos & pizzicatos of neo-classical music, the rude drums of trap-rap, & the sweet, special & sentimental moments of Janet Jackson's Velvet Rope are all swept up & embraced in the deep beauty of Total Loss






Naomi Punk - The Feeling CD or LP



Considering the way the music world is today, you'd expect a bunch of young Seattle dudes to get extra weird, if only because they can, but Naomi Punk take a different route, constructing brawny, anthemic rock songs that'll make every kid that hears them what to start their own band, if even half of them are this good, music will be in a pretty great place. Reissue of their original, self-released version!

In December 2010, members of Acid Baby Jesus & Hellshovel collided in Athens, Greece, dug deep into their bottomless well of weirdness & crept forth w/ a ghostly experiment called Voyager 8. This exercise in extraterrestrial psychedelia has manifested in a 4-track 10" EP dripping w/ delirious, synthesizer driven cosmos-rock. Massive, meteor crumbling riffs copulate w/ tribal Martian beats & vox swirls. 2-track highlight the collaboration, the other 2 present new material from both groups
