TELEPATH
A (imp, White Vinyl)
 cover
Dream Catalogue
"I was standing in a large square room and there was nothing below me, nothing above me. I looked down and the floor was an infinite black void, descending into nothingness. Above me was an eternal white void, ascending forever. I stood facing the wall where the two met, a neutral zone. Sensing a strong presence behind me, I turned and saw a girl who glowed radiantly with her own light, a vivid entity. As our eyes met for the first time, an intense feeling of love overpowered me. She began to glow even brighter, more light emanating from her being until the light consumed us both and we joined together as one. In that moment of telepathy we shared memories, emotions and everything together as one mind. We felt our connection so powerfully; an eternal bond that could never be broken. She began to explain many things about myself, life and the cycle of human existence until the knowledge transfer became too intense and made me black out. Waking up, I knew I had found my true love and my purpose in life. I knew then to call her A."

First ever vinyl issue of Konami's legendary PC-8801 (later ported to Sega CD) masterpiece, SNATCHER. This is an early game directed by none other than Hideo Kojima of METAL GEAR fame. This is everything you want it to be- cyberpunk jams to accompany your adventures in the neon-lit back alleys of Neo Kobe City. This game has developed a rabid, cult like following, and copies of the Sega CD game go for around $400. Do yourself a favor and pick up this limited color version we've gripped from our friends at The YeTee before these are gone!

KONAMI KUKEIHA CLUB
Lagrange Point (soundtrack) (limited Color Vinyl)
 cover
YeTee
Super unique release to a Japan-only Konami RPG for the Famicom (known as the NES in america.) Composed by the legendary Konami sound team, this one is unique for having a special mapper chip allowing the cartridge to produce FM synthesis, something neither the NES or Famicom was capable of on it's own. This is crystaline atmospheric game music at it's best, and the firt release of this cult classic in the USA. We got the limited variant exclusive to our friends at The YeTee, so don't miss out!

Joyful Noise
Chicago duo HIDE return with a 2nd 12" ep for Joyful Noise's white label series. Curated by JOAN OF ARC's TIM KINSELLA, this 4-track EP is hard-hitting, dark and catchy, especially '91 Lashes'.

WISHGIFT
Wishgift
 cover
Sophomore Lounge
Chicago's WISHGIFT blurs ferocious punk and bombastic prog like they're running through the mid-'80s SST catalog with zeal and aplomb. Long in the making, this LP will knock you down where you stand.

TENNIS
Yours Conditionally (w/ Download)
 cover
Mutually Detrimental
TENNIS prefer to write while disconnected, & this LP was inspired by sailing the Sea of Cortez, sleeping in shifts & letting the sea (metaphorically) wash over them. Their sound is wide open & melodic, simple- sounding melodies floating in & out as if with the breeze itself. Understated & RECOMMENDED.
Available at: Broadway and Loop
New LP $15.99

REAL ESTATE
In Mind (gold Foil First Pressing) (w/ Download)
 cover
Domino
Hazy, beautiful & often surreal, Real Estate's sound is lustrous & symphonic. With influences ranging through generations of guitar pop, Real Estate's sound is unique in Indie Rock.
Available at: Broadway and Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $19.99

SPOON
Hot Thoughts (red Vinyl, Ltd 5000) (w/ Download)
 cover
Matador
"Hot Thoughts" is the 9th album by the long-standing indie rock group fronted by Britt Daniel. Spoon's songs are tight & efficient pop rock songs with simple arrangements, sort of like a modern take on Todd Rundgren or THE CARS. Sure, all of these artist would be considered "mainstream" but there is art in what they're doing & it's not just a product to be consumed. This one feels like a solid continuation of "They Want My Soul" as synths are once again used sparingly as nice background textures on the bass & drum driven indie rockin' tunes. This is another solid album from Britt & the band.

New LP $18.99

OBERST, CONOR
Salutations (2lp) (w/ Download)

Nonesuch
A companion piece to Ruminations, Salutations is orchestrated reworkings of songs from that record as well as 7 brand new tracks, played with a large cast of friends & compatriots.
Available at: Broadway and Loop
New LP $24.99

NECROPHAGIST
Epitaph (reissue) (w/ Download)
 cover
Relapse
2017 reissue of this now-legendary album by NECRO- PHAGIST is welcome but a bit of a tease considering that when this was released in 2004 there was already considerable buzz from their debut "Onset of Putrefaction" (hence Relapse signing them) & this album & subsequent tours only added fuel to the fire. Then, they went on hiatus & haven't released anything since. Technical death metal fans look no further, the instrumental wizardry is legendary on "Epitaph," but without the prog leanings like clean singing, melodic breaks, etc. This is pure, guttural death but with incredible playing. The flashiness may turn some off but it really doesn't get much better than this for the genre.

New LP $17.99

WITHOUT WAVES
Lunar (2lp)
 cover
Prosthetic
Heavy progressive metal from here in Chicago! WITHOUT WAVES run the gamut of prog, their individual abilities clear as day when they're able to get down n' dirty or float along with zero chugs. Expertly engineered at Bricktop Studios by PETE GROSSMAN & mixed by another Chicago staple, SANFORD PARKER. RECOMMENDED!
Available at: Broadway
New LP $21.99

ASH BORER
Irrepassable Gate (2lp, Embossed)
 cover
Profound Lore
Third full-length album from the talented West Coast black metal band ASH BORER. They've definitely stepped up their game on this one with chaotic tempo shifts, some blazing blast beats, oppressive atmosphere & brutal vocals. This kind of reminds us of the later ABSU records with more harsh singing. Good stuff.
Available at: Broadway
New LP $32.99

VASTUM
Carnal Law (remastered)
 cover
20 Buck Spin
Reissue of this great 2011 debut by the death metal group known as VASTUM. A nice mix of 90's death metal with some mid-tempo riffage, harsh vox & some melodic moments. Fans of DEATH, 90's Swedish death metal etc.... will like.
Available at: Broadway
New LP $18.99

FALL SILENT
Cart Return (red/black Vinyl)
 cover
Revelation
2017 single from Reno's FALL SILENT! Wha!?! This kinda came out of nowhere, but the band has been playing their first shows since 2002-ish & has now released this four-track EP! Real quick: their 1999 & 2002 full lengths ("Superstructure" & "Drunken Violence" are two of the most underrated metallic hardcore LPs of the last 20 years, so this EP picks right back up, with their signature blend of blasts, groove, death metal & hardcore. Real tasty stuff, right here.

New 45 $6.99

CUBE
My Cube
 cover
Left Hand Path
CUBE is Oakland's ADAM KEITH who emerged from the underground Surface Tension parties. Noisy, lo-fi techno that is dissonant and jarrying, yet very hypnotic. A nice hybrid of noise, industrial, techno and something else altogether. Debut on Left Hand Path.
Available at: Broadway and Milwaukee Ave.
New LP $19.99

HAIR
Hair Invented Suffering
 cover
Tall Pat
Three tracks from Chicago's HAIR! The A side is consumed by a five-minute slow burn that's part woozy groover & part SLEEP. The B side comes with but not quite as hippie'd out.
Available at: Milwaukee Ave.
New 45 $5.99

AQUARIAN BLOOD
Last Nite In Paradise (color Vinyl) (w/download)
 cover

WHY?
Moh Lhean (colored Vinyl) (w/ Download)
 cover
Joyful Noise
Yoni Wolf aka WHY? has almost entirely distanced himself from his hip-hoppin' past. Sure there are beats on "Moh Lhean" but they sound more like the drum production on the first THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS album than a hip-hop album & that's TOTALLY FINE. WHY? has become a textured, pop project & Wolf's songs keep getting stronger & stronger. Fans of forward thinking pop music with cool production techniques will love this.
Available at: Broadway
New LP $17.99

NOTHINGTON

MINUS THE BEAR
Voids (colored Vinyl, Ltd. Ed.) (w/ Download)
 cover
Suicide Squeeze
After a 5 year hiatus, MINUS THE BEAR are back! The album is a nice mix of complex guitar-driven indie rock like AMERICAN FOOTBALL with glossier production this time around & some electronics/synths. Fans of the band should be pleased.

Can You Deal? (color Vinyl, Ltd. Ed.) (w/ Download)

TEMPLES
Volcano (ltd "cotton Candy" Vinyl) (w/ Download)
 cover
Fat Possum
2017 album from one of the UK's best bands is a warm walk through subtle psychedelia, with enough hooks to retain its pop foundation. Think TAME IMPALA or the FLAMING LIPS on the more pop end of their spectrum. LIMITED EDITION "COTTON CANDY" COLORED VINYL!!!
Available at: Broadway
New LP $21.99
