Leon Bridges is coming…and he’s our JUNE ROTM Club pick!

Leon Bridges ROTM Club pic

Leon Bridges’s much talked about and anticipated debut LP, Coming Home, is out on June 23. Leon’s music takes us back to 60s soul classics like Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Wilson Picket, and Al Green. The record–produced by the folks in White Denim–is reminiscent of the prime soul era from which put Memphis on the map. We saw Leon perform in Tupelo, MS some months ago to a small crowd and it blew our minds. It was a rare occasion to witness greatness in the making. This record is going to garner him a much wider audience and for good reason. It’s a classic soul record in a time where that’s just what we need.

Coming Home is also our June pick in our Record of the Month Club.  Subscribers will not only get a copy of the vinyl record but they’ll also receive a promo poster featuring the cover artwork as well as one of our new red & white can koozies.  The poster will look great next to the Pops Staples poster we sent out a few months ago with the March ROTM Club selection! If you aren’t signed up for our Record of the Month Club then go here and do it!

We also have a super limited vinyl test pressing of Leon’s record to raffle off.  Just come by the shop and enter to win it.  ROTM Club subscribers will automatically get 5 entries into the raffle! We’ll pick the winner at the end of June.

The May ROTM Club Pick is…

Built to Spill’s new record, Untethered Moon

built-to-spill_untethered-moon_lp

This is the first straight rock record we’ve selected for our new Record of the Month Club and it’s pure indie rock at its best. Doug Martsch and company never hold back and this record is no different from some of their classic albums like Keep it Like a Secret, and Perfect From Now On.  Untethered Moon is the bands first record since 2009’s There is No Enemy, and we think it’s one of their best yet.

Built to Spill are an American indie rock band based out of Boise, Idaho. They’ve released 8 LPs including many classics while also maintaining an amazing live show throughout their career since starting in the early 1990s.

This new record comes pressed on black vinyl with 500 translucent blue vinyl copies randomly inserted in record stores throughout the country…so hopefully some of you will snag one of the rare blue ones, but we have no way of knowing.  We’ll also be including a print of Built to Spill’s Record Store Day exclusive poster featuring artwork from the record packaging. You may find some swag from us in this shipment as well. These will ship out in early May to all of our subscribers, and if you haven’t signed up yet please go here for more details.

Untethered Moon is arguably the most enjoyable Built To Spill album since 1999’s pivotal Keep It Like A Secret.”

Exclaim

Untethered Moon, the band’s first album in six years, wastes no time in reaffirming what Built To Spill does”.

The A.V. Club

“Built to Spill are the AC/DC of indie rock: Their catalog is full of one melancholy LP, jam-packed with guitar pyrotechnics, after another. But frontman and six-string virtuoso Doug Martsch knows how to vary the formula just enough to keep things interesting. On their eighth LP, and first since 2009, Martsch explores 50 shades of disappointment on “Never Be the Same” and “Another Day,” wraps his anxieties up in post-Hendrix guitar swirl on “When I’m Blind” and builds a stomping, Crazy Horse-style jam about forgetting someone close to him on “C.R.E.B.” The album’s consistency is a testament to Martsch’s perfectionism (he scrapped a whole album in 2012) — and for that, we salute him.”

Secret PAUL McCARTNEY Record on RSD

paul mccartney thing

(thats our guy kind of in the middle with the red hat on!)

Now that RSD is in the past and the shop is getting back to normal we wanted to let y’all know about one of the coolest things that happened this year for Record Store Day involving Sir Paul McCartney.  Sir Paul sent 109 copies of a rare, autographed, white-label 12″ record of one of his new songs to a select number of record shops around the country.  The record was unannounced and was to be placed in the McCartney section of our store on Record Store Day until any unassuming customer found it and purchased it for $9.99! It was probably one of the rarest records to ever come through the shop and it was amazing seeing a hardcore fan of The Beatles find the record on RSD! So a HUGE thanks to Paul McCartney and his crew for letting us be a part of this crazy promotion. This is why we love RSD, because you never know what tricks we’ll have up our sleeve.

Thanks again for everyone that came out and a even BIGGER THANKS to those folks that make it a point to shop at our store all year long. We love you all!
