Lots of updates!

I must apologize for the lack of updates here recently. With the birth of our first child, Bonnie’s recovery from the pregnancy and other issues in-between, I have been holding down the fort essentially alone and there is only so much I can accomplish in a day, so these posts had to go by the way side. But things are starting to look up, and once we can get Ilan’s  esophagus condition under control, we should be back to full power.

Anyways, I’ve been brewing up some ideas to get a little extra cash in as a coule canceled pre-orders, a hyper-active distributor that sent us more merch than we were ready to handle (and pay for) as well as all the missed work from the birth that has put our December well in the red. I was going to roll them out tonight, but I’m thinking of putting them together in a post-Christmas sale kind of thing. We’ll see in the next couple of days. 🙂

Anyways, here’s some new stock to the store that has gone up in the past couple weeks (though far from everything that has actually gone up):

More preorders (Brant Bjork, Damned, Kevin Devine & more)

We just can’t keep up with all these new releases, and apparantly neither can any of the pressing plants. So many releases keep getting pushed back because there is simply not enough time and material to go around. Double-edged sword for anyone buying vinyl, I guess. 🙂

Backyard Babies – Fuck Off And Die (Scandinavia – Red w/White)

Brant Bjork & The Operators – Brant Bjork & The Operators… (2xLP)

Cave, Nick & The Bad Seeds – Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! (LP + 7″)

Preorders, restocks, new section!

Where to start, where to start? First off, we’ve got more and more preorders going up, some new records to the store, some restocks and a new section. New section is titled, ‘Coming Soon,’ which is where we’ll be sticking records we have heard or known are coming at some point, but that’s all we know. Just a little informational section, plus it’ll be a little less work for us in the long run.

Some exciting news to report though. First off, we paid for our next exclusive color last week or so and now we’re just waiting to announce it. Its going to be an awesome package for an awesome reissue. It will be a LP + 7″ set (it was never released as such so that is not going to be a useful clue) and our color is supposed to be clear. That’s all you get to know for now. 🙂 Second, we have nearly finalized our order from the Bloodhound Gang to carry most of the vinyl they have for sale at their online store. I love the BHG but tracking down their vinyl is far too hard. I hope to have preorders up sometime this week. Third, we are currently in the talks with Reel Big Fish to carry their “Monkeys” double LP picture disc that has only been available from their online store and on tour. These are pricey sets, but they come from France and there are currently no plans to make more. Hopefully that will pan out and we’ll be able to sell them for less than the $30 they are charging right now.

Okay, time for the stock updates, in no particular order:

Coming Soon:

Alkaline Trio – Crimson 

Alkaline Trio – Good Mourning (2xLP) 

New to the store:

Briggs, The – Come All You Madmen
