So so so much pre order added to the website this week. Its crazy out there. Right now I'm going to link the words pre order so that you can skip the chat and get to the goods if you want to avoid my waffle and see for yourself what's been added. For the hardy, here are my top 3 picks.
Lou Reed - Words And Music (Pink Vinyl)
This one is released on August 26th, and its courtesy of Light In The Attic who we can always trust to do a good job, pressed at RTI and the inaugural release for their Lou Reed archive series. A time capsule this one, includes the earliest known recordings of 'Im Waiting For The Man', 'Pale Blue Eyes', and 'Heroin' + seven unheard Lou Reed compositions. There is also a deluxe edition for the mega fans, a 45 RPM 2LP set pressed on Audiophile-Quality 180-gram vinyl at RTI. Too much in the package to note down here, so worth clicking through if its up your street.
Editors - EBM (Orange Vinyl)
The new Editors album is out on September 23rd, so quite a bit off, but in my top 3 picks for this newsletter largely because of how limited this orange vinyl is. Capped at 5 for stock here so given there are quite a few editors fans knocking around, I thought best to give you the heads up! Listen to the lead single here.
Sessa - Estrela Acesa (Blue Vinyl)
Around the corner this one, out June 24th. Posted on the socials about this one as only came across him this week - which dissapoints me. Hopefully released in time to coincide with some decent weather here, the man from Sao Paolo serves up some very good (overused word incoming) vibes. If you like your Jorge Ben's and Caetano Veloso's of the world, this is a nice modern option for the collection.
