Sometimes Summer jammin' isn't about where you go but where you hole up.

I've been on a heavy R. Stevie Moore bender of late and I reckon a good quarter slice of his massively prolific discography of eccentric DIY bedroom record-a-thons is fit for soundtracking the most sun-baked and faded of your high Summer adventures (especially if you find yourself going nowhere). We don't see a lot of previously played R. Stevie come in here at Amoeba, but I was lucky enough to cross paths recently with a used copy of Contact Risk on CD -- one of the many compilations that, what with its 21 tracks, decidedly employs a more-is-Moore approach to showcasing selected gems plucked from his cavernous catalog. But, get into this: Brooklyn based label Personal Injury has lately reissued a number of Moore's vinyl miscellany, notably Phonography (1978), Delicate Tension (1979) and Glad Music (1986), so if you're looking to go out by staying in with some old new music I can think of no better portal through which to channel your indoor summer exodus than this Glad Music banger right here:
