Starting the sunday morning playlist off right with this funky as hell reissue of Monk Higgins "Extra Soul Perception". Originally released in 1968 on Solid State this record is celebrating 50 years of being funky with a repress from @realgonemusic on translucent blue wax. This sucker is limited to 1,000 copies and I don't think it's getting the love it deserves! This one will get you more than just your foot tappin'. Here til 7 today y'all, stop on by! -Patt

Giving this new @stevehauschildt from @ghostly a spin this morning. Low key minimal techno grooves mixed with beautiful ambient overtones is a really good way to start this morning's playlist off. Definitely recommend checking this out if you're fan of Boards of Canada, Lucasle, or Geotic! Here til 9, stop on by and dig. -Patt
Heads up! We have the deluxe version of @johncoltrane's "Both Directions at Once" back in stock! Every single take from the session is included in this one (that means four different takes of 'impressions" folks!). Don't sleep on this one, it will be gone before you know it!

Looking for a good escape tonight? Look no further than this purty reissue of @thecranberries 2017 acoustic compilation "Something Else". 10 tracks reimagined with an acoustic & orchestral spin + 3 new tracks on top of it. All the hits. All the feels. R.I.P Dolores O'Riordan! Here til 9, stop on by and say hi!
Okay so who's given this @underworld & @iggypopofficial collab a listen? What do you think? Yay? Nay? You think it slaps? Think it sounds a little (or maybe even a lot) like Mark E. Smith? Definitely one of the more interesting records to come out in 2018 but we're still over here groovin out to it like nobody's business. Here til 9, stop by and say hi. #smokinontheairplane -Patt
Heads up! Each purchase of the new @codyjinks record "Lifers" comes with a exclusive Cody Jinks koozie. Snag em while they're here. Everybody needs a fresh coozie companion for their Natty Light (or whatever beer you're drinking tonight). Here til 9, stop on by and say hi!

August is right around the corner!
Y'all like to rock? Yeah? Me too. Well here's two rockers that you definitely need in your collection. Metal legends DEATH just reissued their classic 1988 album "Leprosy" alongside their 1993 album "Individual Thought Patterns". Both are absolute straight rippers guaranteed to get your mom to yell at you to "turn that devil music off!" from the living room. Both records are also deluxe limited edition one time only pressings! Leprosy on clear wax / Individual Thought Patterns on silver. -Patt
Really enjoying this new compilation release from GOON. A combination of their 2016 and 2017 eps. The a-side has hella grungy weezer "blue" & roomrunner vibes while the b-side is more in the realm of low or codeine. The spirit of the 90s is alive in GOON. -Patt
"You woke me up for this?" is probably what Loretta is thinking. Sun's blazing, protect your head with a fresh new Mills hat. Here til 7!
A beautifully haunting movie accompanied by a beautifully haunting score by the one and only Mike Patton. Put this movie on your Sunday watchlist if you haven't seen it already. Here til 7 today, stop by and say hey!
One of my favorite questions to ask people is what their favorite record to drive/listen to on roadtrips is, the response quite surprisingly says a lot about themselves (as well as their driving habits). When people ask me in return what my favorite record to listen to behind the wheel I will always revert back to the first @hotsnakesband record "Automatic Midnight". A record synonymous with "pedal to the metal" in my book. 11 songs of pure foot tapping adrenaline guaranteed to get you to any destination 5 minutes faster. Looking to spice up your musical life tonight? Look no further. -Patt
Putting out another slew of picture sleeve 45s. Here til 9 today. Where you at? Loretta is here waiting to get some love and help ya dig.
Putting out a handful of sweet punk 45s/7"s. Chrome, Man Or Astroman, Pissed Jeans, Jay Reatard, The Clash, Sonic Youth, Godheadsilo, lowercase & more. Here til 9, come say hi!
Did y'all know @rammsteinofficial did official vinyl reissues of their back catalog? Now I already know what you're thinking. "A Rammstein record? Seriously? That is SO 1998!" and while you're not wrong at all I'm still gonna take time to talk about it. This record was a game changer in my early teenage years and was a huge introductory step into both metal and industrial music. Sehnsucht has always held a special place in my heart and without I don't think I'd be listening to groups like Schweisser, Girl Band, Prick, Pharmakon, or Marilyn Manson. -Patt
You know what time it is. It's time to take a look and see what's hitting the floor for New Release Day 7/20! New @reflectrespondnow, @chrishazeltonb3, @tysegall, @white_fence, @theinternet, as well as reissues from @pedrothelion, #death , @alicecooper, @thepharcyde, and so much more!

One of my favorites of the past weeks new releases. @chastitysongs from Whitby, Ontario takes on the gloomy outlook of suburban living. Anybody who's into bands like Sneeze, Metz, or Dasher would really enjoy this record. Big blown out fuzzy guitars with massive hooks accompanied by low key laid back jammers. -Patt
We've got your Classic Rock Starter Pack® here waiting for you. Where you at? We'll be jamming these classics til 9. Come on bye and see us!
My God this new @chrishazeltonb3 record is some GOOD STUFF. We’re now carrying one of the funkiest local records we’ve yet to hear. Swipe for magic.

Summer time and the diggin' is easy. Here til 7 pm.
Breakbeats, tech riffs and all. Vein's (@vein.tv) new LP "Errorzone" is something out of the ordinary. It's like slipknot, deadguy, and jerome's dream all in one. This album brings an industrial sound so fond of the late 90's and infused with a new intense wave of hardcore. Excited to see where this record takes them.

Standards change. 10 years can do a lot to people, people, relationships. In the case of @herbiehancockofficial and his jazz standard "Watermelon Man" these two records are a perfect showcase of how much can change in 10 years, or better yet evolve. Both fantastic records that bring something completely different to the table. What's you're favorite version of Watermelon Man? The 1962 Bop Classic or the 1973 Funk Jammer? Here til 7 today, stop by and say hello!
We've got a fresh batch of @damienrice's "O" back in stock! First time on vinyl since it's original release in 2002! First batch sold out super quick so don't miss out this time around.

Unboxing plenty of goodies today. Personally stoked on this new @snailmailband record from @matadorrecords. Beautiful melancholy indie rock/bedroom pop. It's like you took palehound, chastity belt, and hop along and fused em all together. Definitely recommend picking this one up!
Whatchu know about 10 minute long drum solos? Jamming out to this Lee Michaels right now. This record goes HARD. Every song on this record rips (not to mention the slamming drum solo by the one and only FROSTY). Got plenty of goodies on the used new arrival rack, come on down and dig! Here til 9.
It's been a very long time since I've spun these two... I'll never forget the time I caught their set at Dollhouse back in 2014. So many tissue boxes. What records are y'all starting the morning off with? Here til 9, come say hi!

Anybody given this new Denmark Vessey (@denmarkves) album a whirl yet? Really cool stuff here. Produced by Earl Sweatshirt & Knxwledge with features by Adas, DrxQuinn & Vic Spencer. Super sick beat tape is also included. Threw this one on not really knowing what to expect but came out super pleased. Great flow with super solid production.
