Hello again, Vinyl Enthusiasts!
It’s a sunny Friday here in San Francisco, and we’re comin’ at ya with a brand new RECORD OF THE WEEK blog, chock-full of some of the latest and greatest vinyl out there! The MURDER CITY DEVILS are kicking things off this time around with their brand new LP, ‘The White Ghost Has Blood On Its Hands Again’, and this package looks incredible! The ‘White’ vinyl with ‘Blood Red’ Splatter was a great choice, as was the ‘Milky Clear’ / ‘Swamp Green’ Half-n-Half! The band is doing some record release shows all along the west coast this month, so if you’re a fan make sure to head out to one of those and pick up this rad new LP!

Holy moly, check out this beautiful repress of THE EARLY NOVEMBER’s ‘The Mother, The Mechanic, And The Path’ triple-LP! All of those colored vinyl configurations are absolutely nuts! I think my favorite has to be the ‘Bone’ with ‘Grimace Purple’ haze. The ‘Orange Crush’ / ‘Coke Bottle Green’ / ‘Swamp Green’ Tri-Color Striped Vinyl is also pretty easy on the eyes… Amazing!
