Another week has passed and that means one thing….the RECORD OF THE WEEK blog is here yet again! Kicking it off this time around is a beautiful repress from the Mylene Sheath! The band is CASPIAN, the album is “Tertia”, and this gatefold double LP treatment looks stunning! The white vinyl and foil printing was a perfect choice for such an epic record…. All fans of instrument ambient heaviness are stoked!!!

Mom + Pop Music seem to never let up with their vinyl assault, and we love it!!! The latest LP from ANDREW BIRD came out particularly great, too. (Make sure to check out the single from the record, which we made the “Record of the Week” two weeks ago…) The colored innersleeves match the artwork perfectly, and were a great touch to the overall package…Keep up the good work!!

Trippy artwork, a printed innersleeve and two different vinyl configurations… Can’t really complain about the new 12” LP from CASUAL DOLPHINS, amazing band name too…
BAND: Casual Dolphins
It’s always nice to see some new vinyl from the almighty ROBOTIC EMPIRE! This is a particularly interesting release, as it was funded by a very successful Kickstarter campaign…Fuck yeah!! It’s amazing to see how fans can directly help a record see the light of a day, and this debut LP from TILTS is a perfect example…Buy this, now!!

Last but not least is a fantastic new album from NICK YULMAN! Pretty sweet cover artwork… Is it a bomb? A musical instrument? Who knows….All I know is that the “Coke Bottle Green” vinyl fits in perfectly…
