Ed Lincoln – Ed Lincoln (1968)

More Brasília obscura, courtesty of today’s dig at Disques Sonorama. I really love when a hype sticker succeeds at convincing me to blind-buy something I have no prior knowledge of.  This one convinced me and wasn’t lying about the psychedelic weirdo samba that’s funking up the sala right now.  I’m really enjoying discovering just how weird Brasilian music got, during the late 60s and 70s. Check out the Spotify link in the comments, shag carpet suggested.

Vinyl Me, Please Anthology | Blue Note Records – Initial Impressions

I’m SUPER proud to be announce that Vinyl Junkies has been included on a very small small list of media partners, which include the NY Times and Rolling Stone magazine. Anyone who’s followed this blog for any amount of time know what this kind of thing means to me. If this goes like I think it will, it will be my extreme privilege to take you through what should be a unique musical journey.  I’m pretty certain I know what VMP is going for, with their inaugaral Anthology Series. I’ll tell you all about it at 5 PM EST, look for the vid here, Youtube and on all the regular social channels.
See you then

Ennio Morricone ‎– The Mission OST (1986)

Ennio Morricone ‎– The Mission OST (1986)

Coffee, Smoke, Ennio

The Record Cave sounds downright angelic right now.  Maestro Morricone conducting the London Philharmonic and 2 vocal choirs will turn just about any room into a cinematic temple of worship; like The Exorcist but the opposite.  Morricone also scored the soundtrack to The Exorcist II so I’m already two steps into the morning rabbithole.

Be happy, spin your records.  Make humpday better; music never fails.

The world lost one of its most singular artistic today.  This picture is today; it cannot sound any other way.  Thank you, Mr. Scott Walker.

Look ma, I’m a big shot now.  Don’t laugh, I earned it doing something I love.  That’s worth every penny of the last 10 years, I did this for free.  Get the accountants on the phone!

Kidding aside, thanks.  Vinyl Junkies is family, our records are our stories.

NEW RELEASE 

Nilüfer Yanya ‎– Miss Universe

2LP, Clear Vinyl

Out today.  Dreamy UK indie pop.  I like it, but the first spin didn’t contain anything that hooked me.  It’s well done but it sounds like a lot of other artists whose names I don’t remember either.  Pitchfork likes it, so you might too.  Give it a listen, let your ears be the judge.

Coffee, Smoke, Petty

All 4+ hours, over 12 sides.  Need help getting over the hump.  Music is always there.
Happy Humpday, Vinyl Junkies.  Play your records, it’s time well spent.

Morbid Angel – Domination (1995)

Morbid Angel – Domination (1995)

Starting the week off hard. I’ve yet to replace most of my death metal cd collection, it’ll take awhile. The 2016 Rocktober reissue of this Florida Death Metal classic brings me one closer.  If you guys wanna suggest more bands or albums from the Florida DM scene, past or present, I’m all ears.  It’s gotta be on wax, vinyl matters.
