PLVS VLTRA "Parthenon" LP (Spectrum Spools) aka Toko Yasuda, better known as the Japanese girl in Blonde Redhead (!), this is pure electronic pop.
Whitman, Keith Fullerton "Occlusions; Real-Time Music For Hybrid Digital-Analogue Modular Synthesizer" LP (Editions Mego) 2 realizations of freely improvised electronic music, the first performed while slightly drunk and happy, the second during a fit of rage. Keith F. Whitman aka Hrvatski, owner of the wonderful distro "Mimaroglu" & all around talented guy.

Bishop, Sir Richard "Intermezzo" LP (Ideologic Organ) A new set of 9 originals from the madman guitarist from Sun City.
Soebardja, Benny "Gut Rock" LP (Strawberry Rain) Insanely awesome tracks from the '70s Indonesian psych rock scene. Actually Benny may be the most amazing of all, not only being a great guitarist, songwriter & producer, but also these were originally private press records. That makes him one of the godfathers of self-released music, and probably explains how he was able to get so many awesome sounds without a studio telling him what to do. Political and beautiful at the same time.
Soebardja, Benny "Night Train" LP (Strawberry Rain)
PunkHerpes "s/t" 7" (Goblin Shark) Ex-members of No Fuckers.

Buenos tardes and hello! It's been a glorious and joy filled week here at FoS; we got an amazing collection of 90's punk and indie rock LPs in (Soundgarden, Misfits, Sisters of Mercy, Super Chunk, Suicidal Tendencies, 5 different Ramones titles, and more) that have hit the floor along with some very interesting hip hop titles. |
We have also put out even more vinyl bulk boxes across several genres if you know anyone who is new to the hobby or want to dig out of the box in the comfort of your own livingroom. And don't forget we have odd and collectible LPs and 45s listed on ebay under the accounts "friendsofsound" and "larrystarr". If you see something you are interested in, head to the shop and we will sell it to you at a discount.
Reminder: Coming up in two Saturdays on June 23rd at the Highball we are hosting The New Day - Austin's Premier Soul Night featuring Dreas from Grand Rapids, MI as our guest DJ of the month. Nothing but chunky drums and butts moving on the dance floor be prepared to have fun. No cover and the party goes til 2.
