Featured New Releases
Our Record Store Day Black Friday just got a whole lot better....join us around 4pm for a special in-store performance by Barrett Martin's all-star instrumental combo, Tuatara! Carrying on a musical tradition influenced by late ‘60s experiments in jazz and rock, Tuatara blends a mixture of electronic sounds, exotic percussion, progressive beats, film score soundscapes and sublime compositions to thrilling effect. Led by Mad Season / Screaming Trees / Walking Papers drummer Barrett Martin, Tuatara utilizes a rotating cast of musicians for each of their releases, their most recent being 2014's Underworld, which featured Luna's Justin Harwood, tenor sax legend Skerik, Peter Buck of REM and Mike McCready of Pearl Jam. This time around, Barrett will be joined by Skerik on sax & keys, Dave Carter - trumpet, Evan Flory Barnes on upright bass, Andy Coe on guitar, and Thione Diop on African drums & percussion. Rest assured, it will be magical! The band will have a limited number of signed CDs for sale at the event.
We open our doors for RSD Black Friday at 7am to offer tons of limited, exclusive releases from an eclectic lineup of artists! A friendly reminder, items will be sold on a first-come first-served basis with a limit of one copy of each release per customer. Check out the list of Black Friday releases here.
FLAMING LIPS - Heady Nuggs 20 Years After Clouds Taste Metallic 1994-1997 [3CD Box Set] - Warner Bros
Clouds Taste Metallic, The Flaming Lips' seventh album, is considered one of its best and earned them much critical fanfare. All-Music called it "a masterful collection that completes the Flaming Lips' odyssey into the pop stratosphere" and compared it to the Beach Boys' definitive album Pet Sounds. Released on September 19th, 1995, Clouds Taste Metallic is also the last Lips album to feature guitarist Ronald Jones. This expanded 20th-anniversary edition, Heady Nuggs 20 Years After Clouds Taste Metallic 1994-1997, will be released in several configurations, including a three-CD set (plus digital equivalents) and a numbered, limited edition five-LP box set. (Individual vinyl LPs will be released at a later date.)
CIRCLES AROUND THE SUN - Interludes For The Dead - Rhino
Those lucky enough to score a "miracle" ticket to the Grateful Dead's Fare Thee Well concerts this summer were treated to some potent psychedelic jams during the shows' intermissions. The mysterious group behind those freewheeling tunes was Circles Around The Sun, a band convened by guitarist Neal Casal specifically for the project. The songs were composed and recorded during a two-day jam session. The results were so captivating, and the audience response so overwhelmingly positive, Rhino decided to give the music a proper release as a 2-CD set apart from the complete versions of Fare Thee Well.

BLUE OCTOBER - Things We Do at Night (Live From Texas) - MRI Associated
Things We Do at Night (Live From Texas) is the new live album and concert film from Blue October. It is their fourth live album, and eleventh album overall. The album was recorded over Thanksgiving weekend, November 28-20, 2014 at the House of Blues in Dallas, Texas.

THE BEACH BOYS - Beach Boys' Party! Uncovered And Unplugged [2CD] - Capitol
Beach Boys' Party! was the tenth studio album by The Beach Boys and consisted of mostly cover songs. When originally recorded, the band invited friends and family into the studio for a party. Those sounds were then layered over the recorded music for a true party sound. Uncovered And Unplugged now strips away those party sounds so that the true sessions can be heard in their entirety. This special 2-disc set pairs the original album with the newly restored audio, outtakes and dialog.
