How Do I Get Radiohead's Limited 'Burn the Witch' 7" Single?

Posted by Amoebite, May 13, 2016 04:00pm | Post a Comment

Radiohead Burn the Witch

Radiohead's long-awaited new album, A Moon Shaped Pool, is out on June 17th. Ahead of the full album, the band is releasing an extremely limited "Burn the Witch" / "Spectre" 7". The 7" contains the first single from the new album, as well as a track originally meant to be the theme song to the James Bond film, Spectre

Quantities of this 7" are very, very limited and demand for it is extraordinarily high. We just found out that we were not allocated as many copies as we ordered. Per the rules set by Radiohead and XL Recordings, this 7" can only be sold in-store and cannot be sold online. So to be as fair as possible, we're handling sales of this 7" differently at Amoeba Hollywood, Amoeba SF, and Amoeba Berkeley.

Fans who wish to purchase the 7" must pre-order Radiohead's new album in-store at Amoeba Hollywood, Amoeba SF, or Amoeba Berkeley beginning Monday, May 16th. You will be entered into a lottery for the chance to own this extremely limited 7". We will contact the winners via email Tuesday, May 17 at 12pm. Winners will need to come into the store to purchase the 7" by the end of the day on Wednesday, May 18th.

What If I Already Pre-Ordered A Moon Shaped Pool on Amoeba.com?

No problem! We'll enter your name into the lottery. However, should your name be drawn, you must be able to come into Amoeba Hollywood, San Francisco or Berkeley by the close of business on Wednesday, May 18th to purchase your copy of the 7".

Check Out a New Green Room Session with Indie Folk Singer Julien Baker

Julien Baker Green Room Session

This spring Memphis singer-songwriter Julien Baker stopped by Amoeba Hollywood to play a selection of songs from her haunting debut album Sprained Ankle. Accompanied only by her guitar, Baker's Green Room Session is a sparse, introspective affair that leaves a lingering sense of hope and melancholy. Her performance calls to mind a young Chan Marshall of Cat Power and evokes the lonely, dusty country roads of the South she calls home.

Baker starts her set with the yearning "Blacktop" then moves into the opening chords of the lovely, redemptive "Rejoice." She closes with the devastating, gorgeous "Something." The arrangements are simple, but the lyrics and themes expressed are anything but.

Julien Baker is on tour in Europe this summer. The latest tour dates and info can be found on her Facebook page.

New "What's in My Bag?" Episode with Theo Parrish, Zernell & Marcellus Pittman

Posted by Amoebite, April 25, 2016 06:42pm | Post a Comment

Theo Parrish, Zernell, Marcellus Pittman Ameoba Music What's In My Bag?

"That's the number one part of DJing, know your records," says Zernell, the Chicago born, now LA-based DJ and head of the music label, Grimy!. Zernell, along with fellow house DJs Theo Parrish and Marcellus Pittman, were spinning records at Amoeba Hollywood for our weekly DJ series, ROTATIONS, in celebration of the Crate Diggers Record Fair. Parrish and Pittman, both Detroit based, are also heads of their own labels, Sound Signature and Unirhythm, respectively. Before their sets the three DJs went record shopping and we got a chance to hear what they had to say about their killer picks.

Pittman starts with the Gang Starr album he considers their best, Hard To Earn, though Parish and Zernell seem to have different opinions on the matter. Parrish chimes in next with Hiatus Kaiyote's latest record, Choose Your Weapon. Zernell picks up Robert Owens' "Bring Down The Walls" 12", which was produced by Larry Heard, who he considers "the dopest 'house' producer." Also in the picks are some of great female singers, including Melba Moore and early Natalie Cole, whose song "Annie Mae" was, according to Parrish, a major tune in '80s Chicago.
