We’re working behind the scenes to finish up the list of titles that will be available for your gift-giving and gift-getting pleasure this holiday season, starting on that Friday they call Black. We’ll have that complete list ready to unwrap this October. Meanwhile, David Bowie’s camp had this exciting announcement to share, so we thought we would:
Friday Music to issue Earthling for Black Friday
“I’ve got Friday on my mind”
Friday Music will release their fourth Bowie 180g audiophile coloured vinyl for RSD/Black Friday on November 27th.
Housed in their trademark tri-fold sleeve, Earthling will be pressed on translucent green vinyl.
Originally released in February 1997, the nine-track album was a Top 10 hit in many European countries, also spurning five great singles in the shape of: Telling Lies, Little Wonder, Dead Man Walking, I'm Afraid of Americans and Seven Years In Tibet.
It’s her Pity Party and Cry Baby wants you to know it. The story of Cry Baby and her dark, gothic journey make up the new album from Melanie Martinez but don’t let the words ‘pop songs’ fool you. There’s more than meets the eye with this serving of milk and cookies.
CRY BABY IN STORES NOW Get it at a record store.
* Vinyl Tuesday is a way for us to encourage artists, labels, distributors and managers to continue to release physical music on Tuesdays when they can. This allows physical retailers to have something fresh to sell and to talk about during the week, and lets those releases not just get lost on the increasingly crowded Friday/weekend.
IN RECORD STORES ON TUESDAY AUGUST 25th!
CZARFACE - Ka-Bang!
(10” Color Picture Disc) It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s CZARFACE & MF DOOM! Who better to team-up with the boom-bap hero de jour CZARFACE, but the super-villain himself...the masked man known as MF DOOM! “Ka-Bang!” accomplishes just that, and is taken from the bestselling ‘Every Hero Needs A Villain’, the sophomore album from CZARFACE, the collaborative stylings of Wu Tang Clan’s Inspectah Deck and indy rap vets 7L & Esoteric. On it, the three MCs assemble for some clobberin’ time over a hypnotically sparse and bass heavy track from DJ 7L. The picture disc 10” also contains the lyrical krypton of “Deviatin’ Septums” (only available digitally until now), plus the mighty “Ka-Bang! (Suckface’s Swine Mix)”, which is exclusive to this release! The B-Side features Instrumental versions to all three tracks. All of it is pressed on high quality 10” picture dis c vinyl featuring the amazing comic-book-inspired art work of L’Amour Supreme of Mishka NYC fame. Side A depicts CZARFACE tangling with MF DOOM, and Side B has CZARFACE exposing his inner workings. With great power comes great responsibility! CZARFACE embraces that head on, and crusades against wack MCs across the universe!

Sometimes there are even better reasons to get your music at an indie record store, and those times are when you get a little something extra along with your new record. The goodies below are available starting on street date with the purchase of the new release they are listed with, but they’re ALL LIMITED QUANTITY, so first come first serve applies. Also, indie stores are just that: independently minded, and not all will choose to participate in all these gift-giving promotions, so check with your local store!
