Happy New Year!

We hope you all had a fantastic holiday season, both personally and businessally. Please let us know how things went for you over the holidays. Hopefully all of you were up up up from last year. Also let us know if we missed any totally badass new year's eve parties. Did anyone get to hang out with the cast of Jersey Shore or anything?

We here are totally refreshed and ready to get 2011 rolling. We have some great records for you from Say Hi, Klaxons, The Get Up Kids, The Dears, Eulogies, Maritime, Generationals, Hooray For Earth, The Duke Spirit and many others. We'll have more on the first batch of those next week, but for right now there are a couple other things we'd like to bring to your attention.

First of all, we are very excited to remind all of you that The Dismemberment Plan's Emergency & I is being reissued on vinyl (with previously unreleased bonus tracks!) on Barsuk (Redeye) and will be out next week (Jan 11)! Lets also not forget that the D-Plan get their name from one of our all time favorite movies (trivia alert! - anyone?). Between this, the new Get Up Kids (who are on tour all winter / spring - dates below!) and Maritime, our 19 year old selves can finally smile again. Though we do plan to keep our 16 year old selves suppressed as not to try and aid in any sort of Earth Crisis reunion.

Also, one of our favorite releases of last year- Dark Dark Dark's Wild Go had a great Pitchfork review recently. Make sure you check your stock and see if you sold out without realizing it. I'm guessing many of you have! The buzz on this band is still growing on a daily basis.

Lastly, we would like to ask for you help and support with something local that we are helping with. Good friends of ours are attempting to build an absolutely incredible multi-functional art facility. It will serve as an art gallery, a performance space and a farm-to-table cafe. They are up for a sizable grant from Pepsi at the moment and need votes. To learn more about 3S Artspace, and how you can help, either click the link below, or HERE. Thank you for helping us give you yet another reason to come visit us here in NH!

The Dismemberment Plan "Emergency & I" [Jan 11]


Line
Emergency & I

Emergency & I, the underground classic from The Dismemberment Plan, will be released on vinyl for the first time on January 11, 2011 on Barsuk (Redeye). In the eleven years since its release, Emergency & I has been widely regarded as the definitive artistic statement from the beloved Washington D.C. quartet and has found its way onto many best-of lists, including the #16 spot of Pitchfork’s Top 100 Albums of the 90’s.

Originally released on DeSoto Records, this vinyl re-issue will be presented in gatefold 180-gram audiophile-grade vinyl with a giant full-color photo collage, lyrics sheet, and in-depth liner notes, plus four rare bonus tracks, also never before available on high quality vinyl.

Please let us know if you need a CD play copy for your store and we will get one to you!

Dark Dark Dark "Wild Go" [Out Now!]


Line
Wild Go

Dark Dark Dark's Wild Go has been gaining momentum since it came out at the end of last year. Lots of great press has been popping up, and they had a very successful US tour too. An example of all of this can be found HERE in the form of a great Pitchfork review. Please go back to this record and spend some more time with it (if you've even stopped listening to it since last year).

"...perhaps Dark Dark Dark's true accomplishment here is how they mix sounds and influences so effortlessly. They comprise a tight, intuitive unit, especially when the instruments swirl together into an otherworldly eddy of sound." - Pitchfork
