every reason why I'm so excited about this upcoming release:

This past Halloween marked a break in the fog obscuring yet another exciting prospect from the deep diggers and detail sticklers at Numero Group. The past few years has seen the label expanding the scope of their offerings and this one is set to be quite the departure from their formative fare, so much so that one might even be tempted to inquire after what they've been smoking. If the above cover art and the sample, below, of the amateur Dungeons & Dragons campaign sketches promised to be incorporated into the overall packaging are any indication, I'd wager that they got a hold of some good ol' stuff! Slated for a February release, Warfaring Strangers: Darkscorch Canticles compilation of lost 70s smokers I can really do with -- this is a direction I'd love to see the label explore further. I'm chuffed to bits for their Purple Snow Minneapolis Sound comp dropping in early December, but this sixteen-sided die seems just as destined for niche-interest veneration as their WTNG 89.9: Solid Bronze collection.

Here at Amoeba Music we love our regular in-house DJ series called MANDALA. This event features all manner of guest selectors, from Egyptian Lover to DJ Female Convict Scorpion, traversing multiple frequencies of the sound and vision spectrum, more often than not discovering new sonic sweet spots as the beat goes on. This Wednesday, November 6 from 5-7pm, MANDALA presents Amoeba SF resident "weird guy" music mavens and salient sounds selector-gurus Dan Derogatis and Julian Maestas as they peruse and play nothing but DOLLAR JAM$ from Amoeba's clearance vinyl section signalling the return of the very special "anything goes" MANDALA set we like to call MANDOLLAR! This most auspicious confluence of experimental ears, passionate bargain bin excavation and solid music knowledge will surely make for an unbridled and unpredictable 120 minutes never before heard nor heard again. The upside of shopping during this particular set will be that every record you hear will be up for grabs, immediately following play. 

Never forget: Records are your best entertainment value!
