Robyn Hitchcock, Mark Kozelek, Hoozier, Ryan Adams, The New Basement Tapes, Wu-Tang,The Dylan Box (or 2cd version) and or the Joni Mitchell Box, we may just be able to help. Here's a track from the new D'angelo which everyone is freaking out about, and from even a limited hearing, for a very good reason!

Electric Eels - Bunnies December 16, 2014
Another small New Release Day at The Cat but some damn fine things in all the same! New on Lp today are releases by Manchester Orcherstra and The Melvins.

Melvins - Eyes On You (Hold It In / 2014) December 15, 2014
In stock tomorrow at Sound Cat: The Melvins, "Hold It In" LP. The new album by The Melvins, already in stock on CD, will also be available on vinyl here at the store tomorrow. Featuring Butthole Surfers Paul Leary and JD Pinkus as special guest members of the band, the Pitchfork review says that this album is further evidence that The Melvins are "the musical equivalent of that endearingly wacky uncle who believe in ghosts, conspiracy theories, and punk rock."

Karl is either building a castle of obsolete media or he is giving the used cd bins a much needed facelift. If you haven't been in a while there's over 100 new titles hitting the used bin including cd's by Lucinda Williams, Panda Bear, Mogwai, Ramones, Lou Reed, Daniel Johnston, Portastatic, Mono, The Outlaws and more and more and more!
December 11, 2014
A new Mojo has arrived! Let the debates on the best records of this year start here and now! Also, u2 fails to apologize, Johnny Marr struggles with Mythology, The Buzzcocks are crowned the punk Beatles and in a real crowd pleaser Ginger Baker Repents (i don't think he's really sorry)! Anyway, let the healing begin!
Pip Proud - A Bird In The Engine [1969] December 9, 2014
The New Releases slow down once we get into December, but that doesn't mean that there isn't still good stuff coming in. New in stock today on lp are reissues of of Spiritualized, The Beatles and Pip Proud as well as new platters from King Gizzard, Sleep and Theologian. On Cd there are new discs from Smashing Pumpkins, Yes and Cracker as well as reissue material from The Jam, Sex Pistols (the 77 bootleg album), Elmore James and another amazing Tompkins Square Gospel comp called "When I Reach that Heavenly Shore." A long while ago there was a bunch of reissues from Pip Proud, who is a Barrett-esque singer songwriter from New Zealand who released several painfully obscure lp's in the later 60's, well it's taken a bit for them to be in print (again) but here they are and here's a track.
