Bat For Lashes - Two Suns CD (Astralwerks)
"One of the most dynamic and intriguing performers out of the UK, Bat For Lashes (aka Natasha Khan) returns with her dazzling second album, produced by David Kosten (Faultline), featuring guest spots by Yeasayer and Scott Walker."

Bob Mould - Life And Times CD (Anti)

Ramblin' Jack Elliott - A Stranger Here CD (Anti)
Elliott is one of folk music's most enduring legends, influencing everyone from Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger to the Rolling Stones and the Grateful Dead. On ''A Stranger Here'' Elliott takes on depression era blues songs that have a particular resonance in these turbulent times. With his world-scarred voice wrapped around these dark songs of dark days, Elliott has made his masterpiece, and album at once elegiac and defiant, that can stand beside great late-career recordings by Billie Holliday and Frank Sinatra. Produced by Joe Henry (Aimee Mann, Elvis Costello, Solomon Burke).

Black Dice - Repo CD (Paw Tracks)

I Was A King - I Was A King CD (The Control Group)
"Oslo, Norway's I Was A King debuted in 2007 with the album "Losing Something Good For Something Better". They were labeled "royally brilliant" and given 8 out of 10 by NME. The Independent, The Times, and The Guardian gave similar praise. This follow-up features performances by Emil Nikolaisen (Serena Maneesh), Sufjan Stevens, Daniel Smith (Danielson), and Gary Olson (Ladybug Transistor). Mixed by Nick Terry (Primal Scream, The Libertines). Front man Frode Stromstad has a unique gift for creating addictive melodies with distinctive roots to the 60s distorted through the sound of the '90s."

Micachu & The Shapes - Jewellry CD/LP (Rough Trade)
21-year old Mica Levi, a.k.a. Micachu, presents ''an ear-bashing of crazy paving beats, junk shop punk, electronic drones, and deceptively mellifluous bedsit pop'' - The Times. Equally at home making brilliant leftfield pop as she is composing for orchestras and making mix tapes that mash up dub step, grime, garage, and pop, it comes as no surprise that Micachu's debut is the aural equivalent of a chameleon: a multi-colored, multi-layered conflation of ground breaking sounds and ideas. "Sideways-thinking pop genius." -- The Fly

  1. I think that the first comment is by some sort of automated spam-poster. I got the exact same comment on my blog (down to the name and everything) except the link provided at the bottom of the page was different. It's sad, I know. But I can assure you I am a human and I enjoy keeping up with the goings on at your fine record store.
