This Heart Electric – Polar b/w Nowhere To Run 7”

We’re thrilled to carry the debut EP from Ricardo Guerrero’s (Animals of the Arctic, hahahelp!, Death To The Sun) This Heart Electric solo project, on Ohio-based label die Stasi (also released the Electric Bunnies/Pink Reason split 7”, not to mention records by Zola Jesus and U.S. Girls). A true single with a bombastic, gloom-synth A-Side (love the howling vocals), and a more subdued, home-taper (Ariel Pink, Dino Felipe, etc) viber on the flip. An essential document from Miami, Florida at the end of the beginning of the new millenium.

After the cut: new records from No Age, David Cross and The Vaselines.

Looking for something even further outside the box?  Check out world music titles like Si Para Usted: The Funky Beats Of Revolutionary Cuba Vol. 2, or this technicolor compilation of upbeat Thai pop from the ’60s:

Lots of great LP reissues in too, including a personal favorite of mine – PULP‘s 1999 sweeping epic This Is Hardcoreon a gorgeous gatefold 2LP.  Longer list of restocks after the jump but it’s really way more fun to just come by Sweat and flip through the stacks…
