This Just In: No Sleep ‘Till…

There are some incredible titles in this week, including limited-edition pieces and reissues that will sell out fast. Don’t sleep – listen to records!

Fred McDowell/Furry Lewis – When I Lay My Burden Down LP:
Highly recommended, a billion thumbs up… Original copies are near impossible to find and will break your wallet. Grab the reissue before it’s gone! “This amazing artifact showcases two intimate recordings with two of the legends of the blues. Furry Lewis and Fred McDowell were recorded in their homes in the late ’60s and Biograph lovingly originally released the recordings as a split record. Both artists rise to the occasion, creating laid-back stylings of some of their most famous songs (‘John Henry’, ‘Casey Jones’, ‘When I Lay My Burdens Down’) as well as material not as readily available anywhere else. This is the first opportunity to buy this release since it was first put out over thirty years ago.” On 180 gram vinyl from Sutro Park.

Loscil – Songs From New Brighton 2LP:
Ambient music fans – if you still haven’t heard Loscil, get to it. “This sixth full length album from kranky mainstay Scott Morgan sees his pulsing compositions gently unfolding in the understated fashion that has become his trademark. He designs a sonic architecture, slowly constructing, making subtle additions and subtractions, until an almost tactile virtual space is formed. Inside these spaces an aural feng shui is achieved, where less is more, where every element is in its place, and where maximum harmony is attained through the masterly placement of sound.”

Crass – Stations Of The Crass 2LP:
Crass reissues are stellar! This is their second album, originally released in 1979. No singles were released and it still reached #1 on the UK independent album chart. Housed in an elaborate fold-out poster sleeve; includes mp3 download. Like punk rock? This is essential.
