There is something very Zen bout cleaning and pricing lp's on a Wednesday, a little moment of focus in the chaos of the week. It's also fortunate that the bins are now bursting with more great lps from the Nonesuch Explorers Series (Africa), The Beach Boys, The Bell Witch, Broken Bells, Donald Byrd, John Cale, Cloudland Canyon, Philip Cohran, John Coltrane, Nick Drake, Faine Jade, The Flower Travelling Band, Ghost, Lee Hazelwood, Los Mac's, The Millennium, Milton Nascimento, Scarface, The Smiths, Wadada Leo Smith, Soft Riot, Systemfucker, Ebo Taylor, Kanye West and more! I also put out over a hundred used cds on Tuesday mostly Jazz, World, Classical and Folk. There may be something worth seeking here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E66Tq05BtBc

Thurston Moore - Speak To The Wild October 20, 2014
In stock tomorrow at Sound Cat: Thurston Moore, "The Best Day." A new solo album from Mr. Moore will be in the racks on CD and LP tomorrow, and this one includes some of the most Sonic Youth-y tunes we've heard from him in a while. Says the review on Pitchfork: "The album may not approach the metal-meltdown extremes of last year’s one-off with Chelsea Light Moving, but it does leave the drumstick-scraped guitars and humming amplifiers plugged in, displacing the acoustic quietude of 2007’s Trees Outside the Academy and 2011’s Demolished Thoughts with a distinctly Sonic Youth-ian discord."
