saki newsletter 10/9/15!

Not too much to mention this week. We're just enjoying our favorite time of year, listening to a ton of John Fahey (and the new Ryley Walker/Bill MacKay record) and getting ready for some events coming up soon. We'll have more info on said events very soon, including a saki presents show at The Burlington and an art opening, so make sure you keep checking back here, or Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Here are a few things we were yammering about on Instagram, etc. this week:

Kamasi Washington's Epic LP box is back in stock!

Julia Holter's Have You In My Wilderness is back in stock (along with Loud City Song)! 

We had a blast (as always) at the Schubas Pig, Swig, and Record Dig!

It's just a fact - fall is the best season. It's got the best clothes, the best weather, and the best music! Keep an eye on our 20% off shelf. We'll be stocking it with killer autumn picks until we get sick of it!
 We got a few copies of Pity Sex's long out of stock Feast of Love LP in this week. They all had slightly damaged sleeves so we're putting them out on the cheap!

After a long wait, Whistler Records finally received vinyl copies of Bill Mackay and Ryley Walker's fantastic Land of Plenty LP! We're going to play the crap out of it this fall.
Girl Band's debut full length is out now! We are beyond stoked on this one. Do yourself a solid and check it out.

Staff Picks:

Adam's Pick of the Week:

Holy Moly, this is some feel-good music! This is Al Green's first album without the Hi Rhythm Section and producer Willie Mitchell, and the first time Al would play lead guitar on one of his records.

It's also the last of Al's 70's secular albums, although much of the Belle Album is pretty clearly about The Lord. Lest the religious lyrical content scare you off, just know that this album is groovy as hell. Al is in top form and doing just fine on his own in the studio.

There's good reason that this is called The Belle Album. The opening tracks sets the tone so well that it really couldn't have been called anything else. Throw it on, feel good, that is all.

Anna's Pick of the Week: 

I must have listened to this album 3 times in a row. Classic vintage rock concept album with new school touch. The first track is the entire side A. Heavily inspired by psychedelic and classic rock (The Who, most clearly) it layers poppy guitar riffs, echoey reverb, drum solos, and stacked harmonies. It’s a surprisingly honest homage to the legacy of classic rock while still being fresh and ultimately have you humming something new. For me, it’s a perfect record for getting lost in a book.

Listen to the album trailer here!
