Wanna burn off some of those Thanksgiving calories? Our next event is Friday, November 28th - Black Friday! To celebrate the beginning of holiday shopping season, our friends at Record Store Day HQ have helped build a cool little day, with all kinds of cool new releases made especially for the day. Check out the list here, and start your holiday shopping with something for yourself or someone special. As usual, we recommend showing up early if there is something you -really- want! Santa has an early present for the weekend: FREE PARKING ALL DAY ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY.

And as we enter the madness of the holiday season, we urge everyone to shift their shopping and buy local as much as you can. When you shop locally, you keep more money in our local economy. You support local jobs and the entrepreneurs who create them. You protect the environment by reducing processing, packaging and pollution. And you help build the community that helps keep Bloomington vibrant! #ShopBtown

New Arrivals for November 25th

Flake Music - When You Land Here (Sub Pop)

James Mercer (The Shins, Broken Bells) formed Flake Music in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1992 with Neal Langford on guitar, Phil Higgs and then Marty Crandall on bass and Jesse Sandoval on drums. Flake Music was a collaborative affair with each member contributing to the songwriting process. From 1992 to 1997, Flake Music released several singles before releasing When You Land Here... in 1997. Upon the album's release, Flake Music began touring largely due to support from Modest Mouse, amongst others. In 1996, Mercer started The Shins as an outlet for his songwriting, and the rest is well-known history.

Andy Stott - Faith in Strangers (Modern Love)

Making use of on an array of instruments, field recordings, found sounds and vocal treatments, it's a largely analog variant of hi-tech production styles arcing from the dissonant to the sublime. Between these two points the album heads off from the sparse and infected "Violence" to the broken, downcast pop of "On Oath" and the motorik, driving melancholy of "Science & Industry" - 3 vocal tracks built around that angular production style that imbues proceedings with both a pioneering spirit and a resonating sense of familiarity. The most memorable and oddly cohesive of Stott's career to date, built and rendered in the spirit of those rare albums that straddle innovation and tradition through darkness and light, lingering on in the mind like nothing else.

Don Muro - Souffrances Et Extases Du Jeune Amour LP (Flannelgraph)

When it comes to lost or unreleased albums, most have stories that are far more compelling than their actual musical content. But the intriguing narrative here is just how wonderful these songs are! This collection, whose title translates as "The Sufferings and Ecstasies of Young Love", is full of euphoric uppers and depressing downers that float across genres as Muro lets his young emotions flow through catchy garage rockers to smooth AM gold ballads to arena-ready prog pop anthems to the the analog synthesizer compositions for which he is best known. While comparisons could be made to anyone from The Zombies to Todd Rundgren to Carole King to Pilot to Elton John to Boston, the voice and direction throughout is distinctively Don Muro, who wrote, performed and recorded every note.

The Postal Service - Everything Will Change DVD (Sub Pop)

A feature-length documentary concert film of The Postal Service's performance at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA during their 2013 reunion tour. A collaboration between Benjamin Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie) and Jimmy Tamborello (Dntel), with Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis, they released Give Up, their one and only album, in 2003. That record went on to sell over a million copies and most of the band's fans never had the chance to see them perform live. In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of Give Up, the band reunited to tour the world. With never-before-seen live recordings, intimate interviews and backstage footage of the band, it captures one of the nights when everything did change.

Copeland - Ixora (Tooth & Nail)

Though each member has been pursuing new ventures, inside and outside of the music industry both collectively as well as individually, Aaron Marsh, Bryan Laurenson, Stephen Laurenson, and Jonathan Bucklew have reunited to record and self-release their 5th full length album Ixora. The album was recorded and produced by Aaron Marsh at The Vanguard Room studio in Lakeland, FL, and mixed by 4-time Grammy winner Michael Brauer (Coldplay, John Mayer, The Rolling Stones).

Cursive - The Ugly Organ [deluxe] (Saddle Creek)

The Ugly Organ (Deluxe Edition) is Cursive's classic 2003 album fully remastered along with eight bonus tracks from the era, including four tracks from the 8 Teeth To Eat You EP, never before on vinyl. Also includes new album cover, an extensive booklet containing photos from band's archive, original artwork drafts, handwritten lyrics, and new liner notes written by Kyle Ryan of The A.V. Club.

David Guetta - Listen (Atlantic)

Listen is the 6th album by the French DJ and producer. It features collaborations with artists from the R&B, hip hop, alt rock and pop worlds such as Sam Martin, Emeli Sande, Nicki Minaj, John Legend, Nico & Vinz, Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic), Sia, Magic!, Bebe Rexha, South African group Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Ms. Dynamite, Elliphant, Birdy, Jaymes Young, Sonny Wilson, Vassy, and Skylar Grey. It also features additional production from his frequent collaborator Giorgio Tuinfort, Avicii, Afrojack, Nicky Romero, Showtek and Stadiumx, with writing credits from Jason Evigan, Alicia Keys and The-Dream among others.

VA - Native North America Vol. 1: Aboriginal Folk, Rock & Country 1966-85. (LITA)

Native North America (Vol. 1) features music from the Indigenous peoples of Canada and the northern United States, recorded in the turbulent decades between 1966 to 1985. It represents the fusion of shifting global popular culture and a reawakening of Aboriginal spirituality and expression. The majority of this material has been widely unavailable for decades, hindered by lack of distribution or industry support and by limited mass media coverage, until now. You'll hear Arctic garage rock from the Nunavik region of northern Quebec, melancholy Yup'ik folk from Alaska, and hushed country blues from the Wagmatcook First Nation reserve in Nova Scotia. You'll hear echoes of Neil Young, Velvet Underground, Leonard Cohen, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Johnny Cash, and more among the songs, but injected with Native consciousness, storytelling, poetry, history, and ceremony.
