saki newsletter 11/11/14!

How about this weather, you guys, eh!? It's never an easy transition from Fall to Winter around here, but on the plus side it's the perfect time of year for Songs:Ohia and Belle and Sebastian, and Elliott Smith, and we've got plenty of that around here!

You know what else we have around here? We have in-stores! J. Fernandez and Famous Laughs are coming up this weekend. Then we have Onsoru (The Terra Godz), with Blaise B. and Luis Mendez the following weekend. That's it for now, but there's always more in the works, including Bill Connors' opening reception next month!

Here are some other things we have plenty of around here, according to our Instagram (@sakistore)...

We got some new arrivals and restocks from The Feelies, Pedro The
Lion, Shellac, The Flaming Lips, Allah-Lahs, De La Soul, Cloud
Nothings, Roedelius, and Algo Salvaje (essentially a spanish-language
Nuggetscomp. from Munster Records)!
Highlights from our recent used new arrivals!
More used vinyl!
Restocks from one of our favorite labels, Exploding In Sound! What 
we'll call modern classics from Pile and Ovlov and a new release 
from Baked!

Spotify listening station:

These days record stores don't get a ton of promos from bands and labels like the good ol' days, but we know that you still want a chance to listen to a lot of things before you make the decision to buy. To help you out with that we've created a Spotify Listening Station in the store. Sounds fancy, right? It's not. We just bought a burner phone and put literally nothing on it but the Spotify app!

If you find yourself flipping through the racks and you realize that you'd like to listen to something before you buy it, just ask at the counter and we'll pull out some headphones and Burnice (that's what we named our burner phone) so you can have a listen!
