Fellow Vinyl Enthusiasts…
We have a jam packed Record of the Week blog coming at you, with more 7”s on here than we’ve ever featured before, so without further ado….
Starting this week off is none other than our friend TIM BARRY! With his upcoming fifth studio release set to come out on November 28th for Black Friday Record Store Day, CHUNKSAAH RECORDS went monochromatic with this title known as ‘Lost and Rootless’. Housed in that sweet reverse board jacket that we love so much, this title comes in either a solid ‘Grey’ color, the available only on tour ‘Grey’ with ‘Pink’ and ‘Black’ splatter version, or our favorite, the ‘Pink’ and ‘Grey’ Aside/Bside with ‘Black’ splatter version. This title also includes a slick insert and a download card for all you techies out there. If you missed Tim on some of his recent East Coast shows, then fear not because he has more dates in October and will even be venturing across the pond next February for a UK tour! Head over to TIM or CHUNKSAAH’s website today or you might miss out…

Over ten years in the making, this latest collaboration between LONGSHOT MUSIC, KB RECORDS out of Germany and our very own PIRATES PRESS RECORDS, HARRINGTON SAINTS’ latest release is a two song 7” with ‘Upright Citizen’ and ‘Rob a Bank’. These songs are already crowd favorites, which makes the fact that this release is coinciding with their upcoming east coast tour even better. In a classic ‘Disco Bag’ sleeve, these 7”s are available in either ‘Olive Green’, ‘Mustard Yellow’, the awesome looking ‘Silver’ or the ultra rare ‘Black’ vinyl version. If you can’t see them on their tour, then you better get a copy of this to tide you over until their next release scheduled for 2015…
