Metal haul at oak! Part 1

Newest release on the #academylps label is in at the shops - The Black Hippies! Killer far out fuzz guitars, nasty organ riffs, killer beats. A sick, sick record.

Damn near every zeppelin record in the bins for 10 bucks or less at oak!

Great jazz collection came in yesterday - tons of classics and great titles going out at oak!


Really, one of our favorite one liner reviews of all time. Reblogged from some tumblr named fuckinrecordreviews:

"Only idiots don’t own it now"

…and that was 1987!


BIG STAR review by Professor Boulakos

Oh my! Looks what made it’s way into oak street a few days early! Come grab it now or you’ll have to wait UNTIL TUESDAY. Woods - Light of Love! @woodsist

Tons of new arrivals hitting the bins right now at oak! Plus my dude #tiggerthebaddestcat

Some more new arrival employee’s picks, this time Cory’s.
Josefus - Dead Man. Killer reissue of this rare Texas hard rock classic on the infallible @numerogroup.

Tinarwen - Emmaar. I can’t believe this shit is real. Easily the most interesting guitar music made in the last 5 years.

Jack Name - Light show. Legitimate modern space glam from a guy who plays with white fence. RIYL merryweather, Eno

Marvin Berry & The New Sound - Bootleg. Simply put, the best power pop / garage band in New York City.

just in at oak : SPK - leichenschrei. Industrial classic! #spk #newarrivals #vinyligclub #scaryrecords


Feature on rock n’ roll buttons/badges, Creem magazine, May 1980

And Suburban Lawns.


The Bomber Jackets “The Lister” from The Lister (2013)

Albums like The Lister are a strong argument for waiting until the year is over to reflect on the best releases of the past year. This is an album that shouldn’t fall through the cracks: the mechanical and cold music of the Bomber Jackets is given a very slight touch of human warmth through the vocals of Russell Walker, whom you might recognize from the Pheromoans. Drums crack like ice over a lake, synths glisten and glide, sometimes from a distance (“The Lister”) and sometimes reflecting right in your face (“Holborn Voodoo”). If you find yourself walking around a grey city in a post-holiday gloom, this is your soundtrack.

You can stream the whole album right now over here via Self-Titled Mag. US residents can grab the LP from Fusetron or overseas direct from the label - not cheap, but your seasonal affective disorder won’t be as strong without it.

Great record and now in stock at Academy Annex!
