Shelflife is keeping me busier and busier these days and I just don’t have time to post about all the great new records I’ve been getting. So I decided I would start a new blog feature simply called “New Arrivals” to showcase items in my own new arrival bin (in this case the shelf and floor next to my stereo). Don’t worry I still plan to do my usual posts, but this will serve as a catch up when I fall behind. Hope you like the format okay.
CFCF – You Hear Colours 7″ – Acéphale
I’m new to CFCF, but if this single is any indication, I need to listen to more of his stuff. I also really like what Canada’s Acéphale label is all about. Their design and packaging aesthetic is fantastic and I’m eagerly awaiting their upcoming Air France 10″ release (which compiles both EPs).
JJ – jj no° 1 7″ – Sincerely Yours
New single on Sincerely Yours. I don’t know much about JJ yet. The music reminds me of a more moody Concretes or Camera Obscura. Again I really love the sleeve art.
Joel Alme – The Queen’s Corner 7″ – Sincerely Yours
I ordered this one with the JJ single above. I’m a bit behind the times as this one was out March 08. Good single and the gold foil on the sleeve is a nice touch.
Lansing-Dreiden – The Dividing Island cd – Kemado
I saw these are selling for a $1 on eBay! Insane! Buy it for the cd packaging alone, not to mention it has their best song “A Line You Can Cross.”
The Artisans 3″ cd-r – Cloudberry Classics
I absolutely love The Artisans and it’s nice to have all their tracks on this 3″ cd release. This is the first on the new Cloudberry Classics footprint. I can’t wait for more.
Cats On Fire – Our Temperance Movement cd – Johanna Kustannus
No surprise that this record would be as good as I imagined it could be. I said there was no way they could top the first album, but this one is quickly becoming my favorite! Vinyl LP issue coming soon from Cargo Germany. I need to place my order.
Testbild – Aquatint cd – Friendly Noise
Latest Testbild album doesn’t disappoint. I love listening to this while I’m busy at work.
Jackpot – Uno Dos Tres 12″ – Service
Caught up on some Service stuff recently. This one gets me dancing.
Dum Dum Girls – Yours Alone” 12″ – Captured Tracks
You probably all know this group by now and yes, it more than lives up to the hype.
