This week we’ve got more great records and some new treats!
Viktor Vaughn – Vaudeville Villain (Gold Edition) 3LP:
“Legendary MC MF Doom has opened up a lyrical wormhole which results in this classic LP – Now in a limited edition, hand numbered, Gold Edition! Contains a bonus gold-colored LP with instrumentals and accapellas, including the very rare ‘Saliva’ instrumental produced by RJD2. The original artwork comes with gold tinted lettering, and also includes two tracks only previously released on the CD version – ‘Open Mic Night’ and ‘Change the Beat’.” –Stones Throw
Okkervil River – I Am Very Far 2LP:
“‘The goal was to push my brain to places it didn’t want to go. The idea was to not have any idea – to keep myself confused about what I was doing,’ frontman Will Sheff says about Okkervil River’s newest album. The resulting record, ‘I Am Very Far,’ is a startling break from anything this band has done before. By turns terrifying and joyous, violent and serene, grotesque and romantic, it’s a celebration of forces beyond our control.” -Jagjaguwar
Helado Negro – Canta Lechuza LP:
Helado Negro is one of many projects from audio/visual artist Roberto Carlos Lange. Born and raised in South Florida, much of the foundation for his interest in sound and objects came from various Latin American cultures. He’s recorded under the names Epstein and Lange, and worked with Prefuse 73, Bear in Heaven and Paul Duncan. Canta Lechuza, his new release on Asthmatic Kitty, is based around field recordings and live instrumentation fed through computer processing and is described as “a thoroughly modern affair, a thing drenched in texture and mood.”
Explosions In The Sky – Take Care, Take Care, Take Care 2LP (Quadruple Gatefold + 36×36″ Foldout Poster, Postcard and MP3’s):
The latest offering from cinematic post-rock mainstays EITS comes in packaging that has to be seen to be believed. Check it out!
