Finally some new music to sink your stylus into, the new Dinosaur Jr. album “Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not” and the latest from Russian Circles “Guidance” are both out today and in stock now. All the details are below. We also received a large shipment of new vinyl restocks, here’s the proof.
On to the new music…
Dinosaur Jr. – Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not
Let’s face facts — in 2016 it is remarkable that there’s a new Dinosuar Jr album to go ape over. After all, the original line-up of the band (J Mascis, Lou Barlow & Murph) only recorded three full albums during their initial run in the 1980s. Everyone was gob-smacked when they reunited in 2005. Even more so when they opted to stay together, as they have for 11 years now (on and off). And with the release of Give a Glimpse Of What Yer Not, this trio redivisus has released more albums in the 21st Century than they did in the 20th. It’s enough to make a man take a long, thoughtful slug of maple-flavored bourbon and count some lucky stars.
Russian Circles – Guidance
Russian Circles is a band you can watch and think only one thing: How do three people make so much fucking noise? The Chicago-based instrumental three-piece is on their sixth album now, with the release of Guidance, and seem intent on digging a new layer of depth into their sound on each one. In the vein of Pelican or Mono, Russian Circles have risen to become one of America’s preeminent loud-as-hell bands, decadent in texture and volume.
On Guidance, Russian Circles drag the listener down an emotionally draining hole that’s at times cathartic and triumphant and at others crushing and melancholic. Lose yourself in the album below and find out what it feels like to come out on the other side.
That’s it for today, we promise though, we are cleaning more used/vintage vinyl and will have the browsers stuffed soon.
