It’s Vinyl Tuesday! Record Exchange customers receive up to $5 in used vinyl* with every $25 in new vinyl purchased and have access to early and exclusive releases. This week’s releases:
While touring on his last record, 2013’s Wondrous Bughouse, Powers got a call that one of his closest friends had unexpectedly passed away, forcing him to cancel the rest of the tour and head back to Idaho. He says, “That experience made me start viewing Youth Lagoon differently – it was a complete refocus for me.”
This sense of gilded rebirth floods the instrumentation on Savage Hills Ballroom – Power’s vocals are largely unadorned and his pop-conscious electronics reach new feats of precision. Meanwhile the lyrics explore darker territory.
The brand new album from The Maccabees is coming out on vinyl only at indie records stores! (U.S. CD is coming 9/25.) Marks to Prove It, which went No. 1 when the album was released in the UK earlier this year, is “a record of gritty intimacy,” according to Drowned in Sound.
ABOUT VINYL TUESDAY
With the move to a global Friday street date in July, Vinyl Tuesday was established to celebrate music in physical form and give record store customers access to early and exclusive releases. For artists, it’s a chance to showcase special releases on a special day and not get lost on the increasingly crowded Friday/weekend.
* Must be redeemed at time of purchase. Offer valid during regular business hours (10am-9pm) on Tuesdays only. The Record Exchange will not issue store credit for any unused portion of the Vinyl Tuesday used vinyl bonus.
