Holy moly, what a weekend! We had Important Records, Morgan Sims' opening reception, The Caribbean's in-store and our friends at the Comedy Exposition kept it going all weekend with one amazing show after another. We're so happy and so exhausted. Let's keep it going!
We're not doing much in the store this weekend, but that's for a very good reason - we'll be selling records at PITCHFORK MUSIC FESTIVAL all weekend! Come say hi to us in the CHIRP Record Fair tent. We. Want. To. Party. With. You.
Also, because of all the craziness this past week, we did not have time to film and edit a vlogcastisode. If you can forgive us, please check back next week. We promise we'll get back in the swing of things soon!
In the meantime, you should spend your Tuesday listening to some of the awesome records on NPR's First Listen and Pitchfork Advance, including the new White Fence, Joyce Manor, The Amazing Snakeheads, Morrissey, and Braid. Hours of good music will hopefully make up for the 2 minute whole we've left in your day by not posting a vlogcastisode.
Find us at the Pitchfork Music Festival!

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 Braid, Frankie Cosmos, and Reigning Sound!
Their first album in 16 years is served well by the fact that the members of the band have never really stopped writing and performing in one form or another since 1998's Frame and Canvas!
LIMITED EDITION OF 500, ONE-SIDED 12" VINYL ONLY RELEASE comes with download. Ready to melt your hearts and make you believe, Frankie Cosmos' (aka Greta Kline) songwriting captures everything great about a pop song - sadness, optimism and charm. Her 1st studio recording after 40 albums of anti-folk bedroom recordings, "Zentropy" is connected to your soul, revealing the flower you should grow.
1st album for Merge, and 1st full LP since 2009's Love and Curses. The recordings are warm are punchy, a mixed bag of rockers, ballads, and something in between. Reigning Sound do not disappoint!
