USED VINYL ALERT:


The dog days of summer have arrived, and we know the only solution is lots and lots of records. It's been quite a long time since we've put out mass quantities of new bargain bin wax, so we figured what better way to break up the summer haze than dropping a ton of very affordable records on you all!

We've got over 800 fresh used LPs priced at just a buck or two, including scores of titles that typically sell for much more in better condition. Yes, these records have been well loved, but who doesn't want a well-loved copy of Sabbath's Paranoid for a dollar? Other artists you almost never see in the dollar bin are names like Hendrix, the Beatles, the Stones, Ike and Tina, Yes, Pink Floyd, Hawkwind, CSNY and offshoots, Fleetwood Mac and their many members, Dave Brubeck, Harry Nilsson, Ray Charles, Thelonious Monk and Dave Brubeck. It's time to score!

And FYI, we've got several thousand more bargain LPs set to go out in the coming weeks, so if you dont see what you want, or if this week's haul has you wanting more, check back in the ensuing weeks for even more crazy deals.

But, as they say on TV, that's not all. In addition to the massive load of bargain LPs, we've also got our customary round of 500 or so fresh used arrivals. This weeks collection is big on jazz, rock and a bit of modern composition.

We've got several Bootleg Series box sets from Bob Dylan, some early/first pressing Beatles LPsand a couple of extremely rare Pearl Jam LPs. We've got recent releases from Jack White, First Aid Kit, and the Postal Service, plus rare LPs from Levon Helm, Them and Merry Clayton. More rock comes from The Band, Rainbow, Deep Purple, Vic Chesnutt, Hendrix, Yngwie Malmsteen, Allman Brothers, Jethro Tull, Robin Trower, and Peter Green.

We've got some seriously rare jazz LPs this go-round, from names like Bill Evans, Eric Dolphy, Monk, John Coltrane, and more. In a rare occurrence, we've gotta nice little haul of modern composition pieces from the mid-20th Century: Bartok, Satie, Stockhausen, Varese, and Xenakis. Cap it off with some nice soul from names like Sly Stone, Ike and Tina, and Irma Thomas and we've got a real nice spread here.

And lastly, it's the used vinyl alert, but we'd be remiss if we didn't mention a nice sized CD collection thats also out in the racks this week. It covers a lot of major classic rock acts, with plenty of catalog albums that we havent seen much of lately. Make sure to have a browse once youve emerged from the basement!

Stay cool, from your friends at SD.

NEW OR NOTEWORTHY THIS WEEK:

The Captured Tracks label continues its (hopefully neverending) quest to reissue all of the great albums from the dusty reaches of the Flying Nun catalog. Here we go with the Able Tasmans' first album, 1986's A Cuppa Tea and a Lie Down, a somewhat slovenly take on The Fall, Electric Prunes and early Jefferson Airplane that perfectly encapsulates the freewheeling, spry sound of the 80s Kiwi scene. New Zealand is a country that built it's own pop music from scratch; its relative isolation from the rest of the world let numerous bands like Able Tasmans marinate au jus, creating some of the most perfect, peculiar pop rock ever. A sound who's time has certainly come again.

Atlanta’s had a stranglehold on hip-hop for a good decade. Full stop. Much like Andre 3000, Future has one foot in the Georgia clay and the other somewhere out in the celestial realm. It took me awhile to fully come around on “Pluto,” but once met on Future’s wavelength, the rewards were rich. He taps into that commercial debut while maintaining the momentum accumulated on his recent run of mixtape prowess. His delivery stretches from high-viscosity drawls to quicksilver bursts and continues to refine the voice-shifting capabilities of autotune. After wallowing in earthly concerns on “Honest,” “DS2” rockets everything spaceward. The South Bronx might as well be lightyears away.

Idrissa Soumaoro was an early member of Les Ambassadeurs, the Malian supergroup that launched the career of Salif Keita and defined the Afro-Cuban guitar sound. Soumaoro didn't quite have the career of his cohort, recording sporadically and eventually becoming a teacher for the blind. Interestingly enough, its a young Mariam (of Amadou and Mariam) singing here on a few tracks on Le Tioko-Tioko, a 1978 album of raucously spirited desert raveups comparable to the Ambassadeurs recordings in their transcendence. Beautiful looking and sounding records like these are rare as hens teeth in any condition nowadays, so it's nice to have labels like Mississippi bringing the good stuff our way for cheap.

The debut album-length release from the German producer Hun Choi, or Hunee, has been many years in the making. Choi's kept busy with relocations to the States, DJ gigs everywhere, and slots on seemingly every radio show I come across. He's known for his deep and thoughtful record selections that skip from house and disco to reggae and folk, featured recently on a 12 hour set for Dublab that rivaled Peanut Butter Wolf's famed daylong marathons. As a producer, Hunee steers a similarly striking path, crafting refined tracks of housey techno that flash and twitch with a refinement almost regal. While many tracks here do plateau and climax according to the general guidelines of proper dancefloor music, what sets Hunch Music apart is the keening details that emerge when the beat dies down; the spritzes of noise catching the toms on Error of the Average, the Laraaji-esque harp strings on Hiding the Moon, the hammered bamboo on Rare Happiness. This is an album full of the details that only a seasoned selector could make, someone who knows that a minute of melody can salvage an album that's 60 minutes of dross.
