saki newsletter 11/27/15 - RSD BLACK FRIDAY!

We're sending out this week's newsletter a day early in preparation for Record Store Day's Black Friday event. All of our in-stock RSD BF releases are listed below, along with the normal 11/27 releases. We have a very low quantity of MOST of the RSD BF releases, so if you're trying to pick one of them up, we suggest getting here before the store opens at noon on Friday. Even though we only have a small portion of RSD BF releases, we will treat them the same way we treat regular RSD releases - they will be behind the counter and we will pull them for you. We will also be observing the first come, first served and one of each item per customer rule. Have a happy Thanksgiving and we'll see you at noon on Friday! Keep your eye out this weekend for special Small Business Saturday sales too!

No Spotify playlist this week because the newsletter is going out before Friday and the new releases aren't up on Spotify yet. We'll make one and post if over the weekend!
Here are a few things we were yapping about on Instagram, Facebook, etc. this week!

We got some new arrivals from Manufactured Recordings, including reissues of David Westlake (The Servants), Beach Bullies, and The Shocking Pinks!

New tapes from Orindal Records! Nephew In The Wild and Plastic Owen Band from Advance Base are now in stock. You ever heard Owen Ashworth sing 'Lodi?'

New batch of Hozac singles available now!

As the weather is getting colder, don't forget you can pick up a saki knit cap that will not only keep your tip extra toasty, it's also good for 5% off your purchase any time you wear it in the store! Same goes for any other saki-branded merchandise, FYI.

Staff Picks:

Listen to Formation, Look For The Signs was released last year in Nadia's native New Zealand. According to some very sardonic New Zealand bloggers, there's a large amount of musicians flying the 'Americana' flag in NZ right now, and these purveyors of fine blogspot criticism are just sick of it. Many of them, however, seem to agree that Nadia Reid soars above the pack. That is most likely because her sound does not fall under 'folk' or 'Americana' but it transcends easy designation.
This is an incredibly powerful album, no matter what you choose to call it stylistically. The backing band really has that whole yearning restraint thing down - they always sound like they're building to something that may not necessarily come, but it adds a tension to the songs that, paired with Reid's warm voice (it's like the blanket we all need to be wrapped in this time of year) makes for an extremely moving experience. 
Ticket giveaways:

Buy a release from any band playing an upcoming Empty Bottle, Schubas or Lincoln Hall show and we can add you to the guest list. Stop in or give us a call! Keep an eye out for announcements for eligible Metro, Constellation, and Bottom Lounge shows too!
