This Just In: Cardboard, Collaborations & Collectives

Tomorrow’s the first day of fall! So, ya know, it might dip down below 85 in a couple months. But while the weather down here is pretty predictable, our stock of music is always changing! Here are some new additions that would look nice amongst your record collection…

Kid Koala  – 12 Bit Blues 2LP:
Kid Koala’s rad, but you knew that already. What you (maybe) didn’t know is that his new album comes with a DIY record player kit. For reals – a cardboard, hand-powered turntable with flexi-disc. Definitely one of the best bonus items ever included with an album!

JJ DOOM – Key To The Kuffs 2LP :
Finally on vinyl!!! MF DOOM and Jneiro Jarel are JJ DOOM. Their collaborative release on Lex Records features contributions from Beth Gibbons (Portishead), Khujo Goodie, Boston Fielder and Damon Albarn. Artwork’s by ESPO. There’s also a promotional DOOM mask included with this (while supplies last).

The Unified Field Issue 01 Book + 10”:
“The Unified Field is propelled by the idea that something tangible can be treasured for its scarcity in a world of increasing impermanence. Inspired in part by the spirit of Wallace Berman’s Semina journal series (Topanga Canyon, ’55–’64), The Unified Field offers a unique collection of perspectives in very limited editions. Each issue unites a wide array of contributors under a unique overarching theme. As the name implies, The Unified Field will bring together disparate elements: high / low, academic / primal, word / picture.

Each journal includes a hand numbered pressing on a clear vinyl 10” featuring tracks by, Robin Pecknold, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Amen Dunes, Department of Eagles, and more. These artists have contributed previously unreleased songs in their raw, newly crafted state—a rare glimpse at works between conception and completion.” –Unified Field Collective
