Earl Sweatshirt Samiyam Amoeba Music What's In My Bag?

Rapper Earl Sweatshirt and producer Samiyam are always looking for the answers to life's more profound questions like, "What's a hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength to do after he's eliminated crime from his hometown?" Hopefully they'll find the answer while watching The Toxic Avenger III: The Last Temptation of Toxie, Troma Entertainment's third installment in their cult-classic series. The pair picked up a pile of Troma DVDs, including such think pieces as Mad Cow, Viral Assassins, and Redneck Zombies, as well as a healthy and eclectic stack of records on their recent visit to Amoeba Hollywood. All the while the two gave out some good sampling tips and Ethiopian food recommendations.

Pearl Jam vinyl reissues

A veritable bonanza of Pearl Jam reissues hit our shelves this morning, including two long out-of-print LPs and five (yes, five!) 7" singles. The new releases are in honor of the legendary grunge rockers' 1996 album, No Code, which celebrates its twentieth anniversary this year. They've also reissued Yield, their 1998 follow-up. The newly reissued 7"s are the singles from both albums.

Read on to find why we're excited about each release.

No Code

No Code (LP)

Out of print on vinyl since its original 1996 release date, No Code has long been a sought-after, expensive collectors' item. It has been newly mastered specifically for vinyl by Grammy Award-winning engineer Bob Ludwig and released on 150-gram vinyl, with recreated artwork. If you pick this up, you'll also receive one of four Polaroid lyric cards.

New "What's in My Bag?" Episode with The Arcs

The Arcs What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

"For some reason it was difficult to get twelve people from Thailand to open for us for nothing," says The Arcs' singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach about Khun Narin Electric Phin Band. Apparently Auerbach was hoping to get the Thai psychedelic ensemble, who makes their own instruments, on board as an opening act to no avail. You may already know Auerbach from his other band The Black Keys, or from his 2009 solo record, Keep It Hid. Along with fellow Arcs members Leon Michels (Menahan Street Band), Nick Movshon (Menahan Street Band), Homer Steinweiss (Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings), and Richard Swift (The Shins), he's had a very busy year touring in support of their debut album, Yours, Dreamily. Avid record collectors themselves, The Arcs recently mined Amoeba Hollywood's varied genre sections and came out with an impressive and healthy score.

Buy Nick Cave's "Skeleton Tree" at Film Screenings in Hollywood & Berkeley on 9/8

Posted by Amoebite, August 28, 2016 06:33pm | Post a Comment

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds' 16th studio album, Skeleton Tree, will be released globally on Friday, Nick Cave, Skeleton TreeSeptember 9th, but the first opportunity anyone will have to hear songs from the album will be while watching One More Time With Feeling, a film directed by Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Killing Them Softly), on Thursday, September 8th.

Amoeba Music will be at two screenings of One More Time With Feeling on September 8th selling the album early! Attendees can purchase Skeleton Tree after the film lets out. Catch One More Time With Feeling and get Skeleton Tree on September 8th in Berkeley at Rialto Cinemas® Elmwood (2966 College Avenue) and in Hollywood with director Q&A to follow at The Egyptian Theater (sold out).

One More Time With Feeling evolved from a performance-based concept into something more complex as Dominik delved into the background of the writing and recording of Skeleton Tree. Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds’ filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Dominik, accompanied by Cave’s intermittent narration and improvised rumination. The result is stark, fragile, and raw, and a true testament to an artist searching for his way through the darkness.
