Weekly new release sale!

Each week saki will be offering a handful of new releases for 20% OFF! You can check the blog, Facebook, Twitter, or our newsletter, to find out which titles will be discounted. We'll choose 2-3 titles each week and they'll be discounted for their entire first week of release!

This week we've got the new Willis Earl Beal, The Orwells, and Arbouretum for 20% off!

Willis Earl Beal - Nobody Knows CD and LP

Nobody Knows' is either Willis' debut or the natural follow up to 'Acousmatic Sorcery.' His previous release was recorded on a karaoke machine, using found instruments. It worked as raw, no-fi introduction to Beal's life as a songwriter and outsider artist. 'Nobody Knows' aims to deliver on the promise of his evolved live show, combining soul-baring vocals with arrangements rooted in everything from orchestral blues to ambient rhythm and blues, gentle lullabies to pure cacophony.

The Orwells - Who Needs You 10" EP

Another EP from Chicago's best young band! One might simply try to sum up their sound as garage-punk but it isn't that simple. Their sound comes from a deeper, different place that is both long forgotten and yet timeless.

Arbouretum - A Gourd of Gold CD and 12" EP

Arbouretum offer up 4 cover versions of Gordon Lightfoot, the oft-overlooked Canadian singer-songwriter who helped define the folk-rock sound of the 60s and 70s. These are exactly what cover songs should sound like - immediately familiar, reverent yet fresh and worthy.
