If I had a dollar for every time I said “I wish they’d reissue Catherine Wheel’s Ferment already,” I could by each of you a copy of Catherine Wheel’s Ferment. Unfortunately wishes can’t be monetized, BUT, sometimes they do come true. Catherine Wheel’s Ferment is finally available again on vinyl after its initial release in 1992! Considered by many (including me) to be one of the best shoegaze albums of all-time, most of the tracks on the record are also considered “classics” of the genre. Apparently “Black Metallic” has been referred to as the shoegaze “Stairway To Heaven.” I’m not a big Zep fan, but that’s a pretty flattering comparison and illustrates just how strong this material is, despite it being the band’s debut album. 25 years later it still stacks up. Take a listen to the stairway to shoegaze below and check out this week’s stellar in-stock list below that. So many exciting releases to explore! -MLE
