It’s happening to me. You don’t want it happening to you. There is more, but I’d rather just get paid.

Vinyl Me, Please Exclusive Pressing (#186/300)

Sundays & Cybele ‎– Gypsy House
Guruguru Brain ‎– GGB-002LP
Vinyl LP, Clear/Half Sky Blue 
Released: 2012 (2019 Reissue)

Modern Japanese psych rock, with classic rock lessons and garage grit thrown in for good measure.  I would hand this record to Jack White or Ty Segall and beg them to listen.  Then I’d bug every fan of obscure 70s Japanese drug music and know they would pick it up immediately.  I’ll include a buy link below but I expect they’ll be gone immediately.  Tag us if you manage to snap up a vinyl copy, tell us what you think!

NEW ARRIVAL

Vinyl Me, Please. Essentials – E073

Flying Lotus ‎– Cosmogramma
Warp Records ‎– WARPLP195V
2 × LP, Black and White Marble
Released: 
2010 (2019 Reissue)

Moving records is a helluva job; them mofos is heavy!  I took the opportunity to dig out all my VMP and Black Lion records so I can get more spine porn going.  It’s not as uniform or impressive looking as the wall of orange and black that’s beneath it, but getting there slowly.  

The Vinyl Lab is one step closer to being done.  Yesterday was spent setting up the camera and putting up display shelving.  It’s not painted yet and there’s no backdrop to speak of yet but I’ve got ideas… I’ll keep posting progress pix and spinning the wax.
Also, this new Flylo reissue of Cosmogramma is LOUD AS FUCK! VMP gave it the half-speed mastering treatment, had it pressed at GZ Media and added exclusive new cover art. It’s pretty, it sounds great and the vinyl experience is immersive and tactile.  Vinyl done right.

All Badu is essential, no exceptions. Previously only available as an Record Store Day exclusive, VMP made it more easily available by choosing it as one of their Rap/Hip-Hop picks. Also, Badu’s version of “Hotline Bling” demolishes anything Drake coulda done with it. Not even close.

BEST OF 2018
VMP Exclusive (500 Copies)

Deafheaven ‎– Ordinary Corrupt Human Love
Anti- ‎– 87582-1YEL, Anti- ‎– 87582-1
2 × LP, Yellow Opaque Vinyl
Released: Aug 2018

The more commercial mall metal isn’t really my bag. From the perspective of a non-fan, there’s a sameness to a lot of it that doesn’t ring true. In any case, that’s the preconception that Deafheaven held for me.  Pretty post-rock, melody/scream/melody scream, rinse and repeat. That sweet and salty marketing mixture geared towards the eyeliner crowd.

I hear all those elements on “Ordinary Corrupt Human Love” as well. Somehow, I still really like it! I don’t even know why, to be honest.  Doesn’t matter, it’s one of my favorite albums of the year.  Fact is, I’d have never given this a chance if I had to Spotify it for myself. It had 2 strikes against it before I ever heard a note. I like being wrong; otherwise I’d never give anything new a chance. I’ve been told the earler Deafheaven albums are heavier, this is the only reference I have so far.  Any other albums I should be looking out for?

NEW RELEASE
VMP Numbered Exclusive (#341/1000)

Main Source ‎– Fuck What You Think
242 Music ‎– none
Format:Vinyl LP White, 180 gr
Released: Nov 2018

I can’t help but think this could’ve been huge, when it originally dropped in ‘94.  I don’t know the back story to this album but it’s sure reminiscent of everything I loved about the harder rap being released during that period of hip hop.  It’s as hard as NWA or Ice Cube, but has a lot of the jazzier elements I’d usually associate with A Tribe Called Quest or De La Soul.  The jazz is just served up harder. That laid back Digable vibe is replaced by a funkier, harder street groove. A no-brainer vinyl pick for fans of 90’s hip hop.  All the elements are there; it plays like a long lost instant hip hop classic that never got its due. It makes me wonder how the existence of Main Source eluded me for so long.  Had I known about this back in the day, it would have certainly been a part of that stack of hip hop cds I now consider a part of my essential listening, DNA hip hop.

Mr. Bongo Bundle, LP 1/3

 This was the afrobeat album I was playing for some of you, on yesterday’s live feed.  Yesterday was the first needledrop, it was AWESOME to see how many of you dug it.  It was even more awesome to be able to have a community spin sesh like we did.  I’m giving this a proper spin today.  Side 2 is every bit as amazing as side one, funky as funky can be.  Immediate recommend, for fans of Fela and funky 70s Africa in general.
