Hey everyone, September is almost over and fall is creeping up on us out here in the beautiful mountains of NE Washington. Firewood cutting, chimney pipe cleaning, various last minute cleanup and repairs around Robo headquarters have been on the agenda as we prepare for winter snow that will eventually come. Lots of good tunes have been getting jammed over here while working on these fall activities and we’re hoping you will be interested in picking up some of these below new items and restocks!
Can’t get enough of the Khruangbin album on Night Time Stories! Self described as 60’s Thai Funk, Khruangbin is steeped in the bass heavy, psychedelic sound of their inspiration, Tarantino soundtracks. Please check them out. The Lucy Dacus album has been on a constant repeat, absolutely love her voice, great song writing, can’t wait for more from her in the future as this one is just stunning!
Picked up some great tape and vinyl releases from Kitty Play records, lots of variety there so please peruse the list below. Bastard Noise tape, Emperor of the North cassette which is WT Nelson’s solo project, known for his work with Bastard Noise, Solo debut by Jay Randall of Agoraphobic Nosebleed, like I said, great stuff, check that list!
The new Helen Money album on Thrill Jockey is now in the store along with, Jay Reatard vinyl from Matador, some more soul via Naomi Shelton And The Gospel Queens on Daptone Records, Russian Circles – Guidance album, and some Reggae from The Frightnrs which we find to be a great evening album for relaxing and unwinding from your day.
Later in October we’ll have that new cassette EP from Virginia Creep so stay tuned for more news on that front. Can’t wait for you guys to hear those new tunes and pick up the tape and some new stickers we had made just for the release.
Gonna list last months update for you to look over again too as there were lots of goodies posted in August also in case you missed that one. Also the last two days of the T-Shirt sale is going on now. All shirts in the Robotic Empire Online Store are 30% off till the end of the month. Better get on that!
Thanks as always everyone and have a great fall season!
