STEVE BUG Look Who's Stalking/Zero Balance 12" (COR 067EP)

Steve Bug follows up his Collaboratory mix with this superb 12" for Cocoon. While "Look Who's Stalking" uses the raw energy of Chicago/Detroit house with driving hand claps, percussions and nasty vocals, "Zero Balance" is an experiment in how far you can reduce tech-house to the essence of a bass line. Short vocal loops complete a sensibility that makes Bug's tracks such high quality music.

This is Halloween, Amoeba SF Style!

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, November 3, 2009 02:13pm | Post a Comment

Another spooky Amoeba San Francisco Halloween has come and gone...thank goodness we have photographs to help us always remember the good, the bad, and the ugly!

We kicked things off with mood-setting DJ sets by DJ Tay and Miz Margo, Taylor in some creepy garb and Margo a dead ringer for Abbey from NCIS!

  Next came our costume contest, with our deliciously disgusting hostess, Miss Snatch Face!

Then came Annie as the cat burgler...

 Emily as Coraline...

Grace as Grace Alice Cooper...

Tena as the Black Dahlia...

Erin as Robert Smith of The Cure...

Billy as Homer Simpson when he got fat to get disability...

Classical Music Sale: Overture

Posted by Job O Brother, November 2, 2009 08:28pm | Post a Comment
It's the, uh, instrument they're focused on. Yeah.

New Amoeba Music customers sometimes ask if/when we have any sales. My patent answer is usually something along the lines of:

“Not officially, because we’re constantly lowering prices on our entire selection.”

…Unless, of course, the customer is holding a ferret and that ferret is looking like he might wanna sneak into my ear-hole and munch my juicy brains, in which case I will modify my answer to:

“Not officially, because we’re constantly calling the police to report illegal pets such as ferrets.”

This may seem like a very niche circumstance to you, dear reader. All I can say is that, until you work at a record store for over eight years like me, you shouldn’t assume the regularity of near-lethal ferret activity. Especially if you’re working the folk music section.
They mostly eat the eyes of our innocent young.

The above being mostly factual, it is something of a special event that Amoeba Music Hollywood has announced an upcoming sale.

November 14 and 15 (or, if you’re British: 14 and 15 November) we will be hosting our first ever Classical Music Sale. All music (tapes, CD's, vinyl, 8-track, etc.) from our Classical Music section will be 20% off for these two days only. What is perhaps most exciting (or dangerous, depending on how much of your rent check you end up spending) is that this sale will include wall-items.

Veinte Flores

This set is a collection of 20 flower labels named after the zempoalxochitl or cempazuchil ("twenty-flower") otherwise known as the orange marigold. Traditionally on El Dia de los Muertos, wreaths made from the marigold are placed on the graves of loved ones and offered to the dead. There was no way that I was going to find a collection of labels featuring only marigolds, so a post made up of various flowers will have to do.
