Death and Rebirth

I wasn’t steadily employed for a while and whenever this happens, I feel guilty about doing things that take up time and are just for fun.  Everyday Vinyl was one of these things.  However, come this Monday I will be back in the regular work force, meaning I feel ok about spending as much time as I did taking pictures of albums.  Expect this Tumblr to crank back up by the end of the week.

New stuff incoming.  I’m in the process of moving and had hoped to setup my queue to cover this period… alas, laziness kicked in.  More stuff in the next few days.

Big China & Little Trouble - “Lo-Panning” (Magic Bullet Records 2011)
I’m not gonna lie to you my faithful readers, I bought this strictly because of the name and cover art.  If you don’t know, the band’s name is a reference to the classic John Carpenter action/kung-fu/comedy masterpiece Big Trouble In Little China.  If you haven’t ever seen this movie, kindly turn off the internet and go watch it somehow.
Back? Good.  That was the best movie ever was it not?  You can thank me later, onto the review.
I would feel pretty bad for any normal schmuck who bought this for the same reasons I did, because if you weren’t into weird music you would hate this.  As we all know by now, the weirder the better with me.  ”Lo-Panning” other than being another great reference and audio pun, is a spacial, glacial, drone epic that takes place over the two sides of this record.  Basically this a repetitive super slowly changing piece comprised of guitars ringing out, analog sequencers (I think), and low end synths, that combined create a wispy, windy epic.  Not for those with short attention spans, and/or posers.  Mostly not for posers.  I hate posers.  Bye.

D.C. LaRue - Confessions (Casablanca Record and Filmworks, 1978)

The cheesy cover sold me.

May 24, 2012

Bobby Short - The Very Best of Bobby Short (Atlantic Recording Corp., 1972)

May 23, 2012

Starpoint - It’s So Delicious (Boardwalk Records, 1983)

I think the best thing about this one is that on that back in in bold text they list the stylist (Ellen Silverstein) and the clothes designer (Williwear) like they killed it.  Shout out to James H. Miles Jr. aka “Mile$" for letting this one go.

Prince - Sign of the Times (Paisley Park Records/Warner Bros. Records, 1987)

May 21, 2012

Slave - Showtime (Cotillion Records, 1981)

May 20, 2012

Madhouse - 16 (Paisley Park Records/Warner Bros. Records, 1987)

Subtitled 16 New Directions in Garage Music yet the first track is titled Nine and counts up from there.  I wonder if there is an LP from the same group that has tracks 1-8?

Tumblr queue is borked.  I just realized things supposed to go up today and yesterday didn’t.
