March Vinyl of the Month Ryley Walker - Primrose Green

This month's pick for VINYL OF THE MONTH comes from the Dead Oceans label.  Here's what they have to say about Ryley Walker:

Because he plays guitar so damn well, it's tempting to lump Ryley Walker in with the growing number of pickers and strummers like William Tyler and Steve Gunn. That comparison isn't too far off either, especially if you want to use a phrase like "post-American Primitive." But Walker counts himself a Chicagoan, so it's equally apt to align him with local post-rock outfits like Tortoise and the Sea & Cake. "Primrose Green", the title track from his upcoming second album, combines the two traditions with remarkable fluidity. It opens as an acoustic pastoral, with Walker singing over a tapestry of lush piano chords and curlicues of guitar notes. As the song moves into its jazz-folk coda, the music rambles but seems increasingly geometric—more orderly, not less. "Lost my mind with a headful of primrose green," Walker laments, but this is no bad trip.

Since January and February picks were in the rockier/heavier vein we though March and it's Springiness could use a little acoustic in the mix. Primrose Green follows a 2013 album called All Kinds of You released on the great Tompkins Square label. 

Here's a track:

Record Store Day 2015 (April 18th)

Vinyl singles by folks like James Last? Five different full length colour vinyl reissues by U.K. Subs? 7"s for the price of 12" singles? 12" singles for the price of (expensive) full length records? And full length records that normally go for half the price, but now are really expensive because they are "limited" to 4000 copies and on swirly pink and yellow vinyl? IT MUST BE RECORD STORE DAY 2015!!!

Below is the (as of this writing) master list of titles the various labels and distributors are making available to we Canadian vinyl fans. As always availability and fill will be a matter of great question right up to the day they are supposed to be in store. There are 500+ titles offered (and some seemingly re-offered if my eyes don't deceive). Last year's sale was a big success, but truth be told it had as much if not more to do with sales of regular stock more than the RSD ones... some of which is still lingering on our shelves. Because of this factor we are planning to be fairly conservative this year when it comes to stocking RSD titles... also the fact that there isn't a great percentage of them we find tremendously interesting.

THAT SAID if there are titles any of you want we will be more than happy (MUCH MORE THAN HAPPY) to do our best to secure them for you. Contact us via or on our Facebook page or (gasp) even come in to the store if you have questions of want a price on any of these.

We'll be posting a list of the titles that we actually might be taking a chance on a little bit later, but in the meantime... feast your eyes on the collectable rock bloat:

Oldies: Jones Very - Words and Days

Organizing the shelves is a constant and necessary chore to make room for whatever new arrivals demand space.  Every time it's done I end up uncovering something that I either thought had long ago sold or sadly realize is tenaciously sticking around for far too long despite its quality. Today that title is Jones Very's Words and Days.  The release is from former Articles of Faith frontman Vic Bondi and was released in 1989 just before the onset of grunge muddied up the distinctions between metal, punk, and classic rock. Jones Very's sound is that of post-punk mixed with a kind of politco folk troubadour leaning that typified artists from Joe Strummer to New Model Army to Billy Bragg and so on.

There's a longer review over at Sputnik Music you can read and consider and a video below. The vinyl has been here as long as I can remember and currently resides in our 30% off sales bin selling for a whopping $5.59 + hst. GET IT OUT OF HERE, finally.
