James Blake Listening Party at Amoeba Hollywood Wed, April 3

Posted by Amoebite, April 2, 2013 03:30pm | Post a Comment

James Blake Listening PartyAmoeba Hollywood is having a listening party for the new James Blake album, Overgrown, on Wednesday, April 3 at 6pm! Hear the album in its entirety nearly a week before it comes out, plus we'll have some tasty organic cookies, free buttons, posters and you can enter to win a vinyl test pressing of Overgrown.

The second album from the 24-year old British singer, songwriter and producer, Overgrown, is due out Tuesday, April 9 via Republic. Musically broad and emotionally deep, Blake's growth on Overgrown is similar to the evolution his debut self-titled album evinced from the mercurial Dubstep of his early EPs. It also reflects how much Blake's life has changed in the past two years. His debut sold over 400,000 copies - quite a feat for a record so uncompromisingly introspective and experimental. It also picked up Mercury, BRIT and Ivor Novello nominations, sent him around the world on tour, and brought him into contact with a wide array of fans and collaborators that includes Jay-Z, Kanye West, Bon Iver, Bjork, Drake, Brian Eno, and The RZA.

Pre-order Overgrown on CD or vinyl from Amoeba.com and, as always, you won't pay shipping to US addresses!

For What It's Worth

Posted by Amoebite, April 1, 2013 11:43am | Post a Comment

For What It's WorthVH1 Classic's new show FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH recently stopped by Amoeba Music Hollywood for a little crate digging.

The show follows Howard Stern Show producer Gary Dell'Abate and on-air personality John Hein as they travel the U.S. checking out the most diverse and sometimes insane pop culture collections (a homemade Mr. T doll collection... uh.. what?).

Although the show can be a little rough around the edges... (John, you haven't heard of 200 gram vinyl???) it caters directly to the music nerd in me with looks into the Michael Ochs' archive, Jack White's Third Man Records, a factory tour of United Record Pressing and now Amoeba Music! VH1 Classic, for a channel didn't know I had... you've earned a spot on my DVR.

Songs By Thom Limited Edition Cassette-only Release

Posted by Amoebite, March 31, 2013 07:49pm | Post a Comment

Amoeba Hollywood employee Thom Petrizzo's band Songs By Thom has just released a limited edition songs by thomcassette called Love...Unrequited. Get it HERE on Amoeba.com before they're all gone!

"Local L.A. musician and Amoeba's very own Thom Petrizzo (a.k.a. Songs By Thom) presents Love...Unrequited, a limited edition cassette-only release. This album is a whimsical and wistful collection of catchy ditties with simple but universally-relatable topics: longing, yearning, and hard-won love. Thom builds upon guitars, keyboards, and drums, with heartfelt, confessional lyrics and layered vocals, such as on album opener "May I?" or the kaleidoscopic treat "It's Nice To Dream." This is bashful bedroom pop at its most charming!" - Brian G.
