I am Upside Down

My two current Obsessions are "What Goes On" from the Velvet Underground's Live Vol. 1 and "And the Glitter is Gone" from Yo La Tengo's Popular Songs.
The wiggy manic jam session halfway-through "What Goes On" gets me every time--goddamned organ noodles that flip back on themselves and change and you don't even notice even when you've got your headphones on and nothing else exists.
And I can't even begin to pinpoint what, exactly, it is about 'Glitter' that burrows under my skin and nibbles on my bones.
To borrow a phrase I picked up flipping through reviews awhile ago, these two tracks are "both harrowing and oddly comforting."  And that is as close as I will ever come, I think, to making any sense  of it.

Blaaaaack Friiidaaaay!

Black Friday is almost upon us!  
Hold on to your artfully arranged fedoras and scarves, you lucky hipsters, you, and batten down those epic beards.  We open at 9A.M. and everything is first-come-first-serve.  No pushing, please! (That's what the parking lot's for.)


In addition to all of our lovely Black Friday special releases, take an extra 15% off of any regular-priced Vinyl or CD release, 20% off any Music T-Shirt, and 50% off of our already-discounted epic Clearance section!

Come check out the new store lay-out!

Oh, baby. You know you want these!
