My Russian Circles collection. The last collection I actively maintain. You should listen to Russian Circles.
Washington DC show poster! TWO sold out shows at the 9:30 Club! That means TWO night’s of load in pizza, free cupcakes, and one of the best crowds and venues in the whole country.

Come & get ‘em.
She & Him | Volume 3 | Merge Records | Robin’s egg Blue /500 (limited mailorder only edition!)
Last day at home before 3 weeks of tour mailbox hotness! The latest offering from Zooey D and M Ward. Blissful, summery pop jams with pristine production by M Ward. Zooey’s doing some interesting things with her deeper vocal tones. Not sure if I’m into yet. But glad to see M Ward is getting some more vocal time. And I’m always a fan of Kate Harmer’s clean, bright, & vintage looking school designs and layouts for She & Him’s records. That inner sleeve is perfection. So’s the lyrics insert with rad photography from Autumn de Wilde.
Also, it’s hard not to think Zooey’s singing at Nick Miller…
Someone please make Schmidt/Max Greenfield make a record.
Sorry for the watermark. Unless you’re a lazy eBay flipper.
The White Stripes | Elephant (10th Anniversary Reissue) | Third Man Records | AB: Black/Red split / CD: White
I only have 7 days off between tours, so expect lots of record posts! I’ve been on tour for the past 4-5 Record Store Days, so I make my Dad do my bidding for me. He hits up some shops back in my hometown (Charlottesville, VA) that are less trafficked than those here in Portland and almost always finds all of the things I need. Thankfully this year’s list was short. But this was first and foremost. Gotta satisfy the Jack White fanaticism. It just arrived in the mail an hour ago. Along with the Pornography 7” (also have to satisfy the Ryan Adams fanboy) & Tift Merritt’s Markings 12”. Side 1 of Elephant had some weird mix issues on “There’s No Home For You Here”, but the rest was awesome.
Apologies for the watermark. Unless you’re a a lazy eBay reseller.
Glaciers | And The Sea Won The Battle (Remaster) | Clear with Blue swirl /220
I’ve been avoiding buying multiples of albums I already own, but Glaciers (from San Francisco) went and remastered their gorgeous debut album so I caved and picked one up. For fans of instrumental music/post rock. I love the bass on this record. You can stream it on their Bandcamp. AND they’ve got a new record coming out very soon!
Drive: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack | Mondo Records | Pink | /???
I already have one pressing of this, done by Invada Records in the UK. But Mondo promised a “deluxe” edition featuring custom artwork by Tyler Stout. So of course I’m a sucker a ponied up. The pressing was split between an unknown amount of copies on black and a smaller unknown amount of pink. The pink copies being randomly put into mailorder copies. Imagine how stoked I was to get home from tour this morning and open this baby up. Those center labels kick so much ass. I just love this movie and soundtrack. Definitely helped win me over onto the Gosling Team.
