In Rotation With Andy!

POSTED BY ON Fri Aug 29, 11:19 AM

You know that our staff lives, eats and breathes music, right? They listen to more music in a day than most folks would in a week. So, for the next few weeks we're gonna let them tell you what their favorite albums are at this moment - and we'll use this opportunity to introduce you to some of our most recent hires, starting with our new vinyl guy, Andy Nelson! Andy comes to us via Lost Highway Records, where he worked in Artist Marketing & Development. Welcome aboard, Andy!

Andy's Top 5

Boris - Noise

My wife won't let me play it around the house which is one of the many reasons I love coming to work. Sorry I missed the show at the Crocodile.

Boris - "Vanilla"

Jenny Lewis - The Voyager

I wasn't sure the first couple of times I heard it, but the third time did the trick in a BIG way. Now I think it might be a modern classic.

Jenny Lewis - "Just One Of The Guys"

Posies - Failure (reissue)

This pure pop confection back in print with 8 bonus tracks & on green wax. In-store here this Saturday, 8/30 @ 6:00 pm.

The Posies - "The Longest Line"

J Mascis - Tied To A Star

WOW! Loser edition vinyl still in stock...at the time of this writing.

J Mascis - "Wide Awake"

The New Pornographers - Brill Bruisers

Rawer than previous (also phenomenal) outings, Brill Bruisers is for power popsters that aren't afraid of crunch.

The New Pornographers - "Brill Bruisers"
