Limited Edition Twin Peaks Color Vinyl Out September 22nd

Limited Edition Twin Peaks vinyl

With only a few episodes left in the long-awaited limited event TV run (aka Season 3) of Twin Peaks, it's time to face the truth that this might be it. No more soul-stirring moments at the Double R Diner. No more Agent Cooper in the guise of Dougie Jones bellowing "helloooooooo" at slot machines. And of course, no more dreamy closing numbers at the Roadhouse. But wait! There is something to hold onto, something to spin on your record player on those impending cold, Twin Peaks-less nights -- something that can make the magic last a little bit longer. Because music IS magic, right? In this case, it comes in the form of two indie exclusive color variants to the show's soundtrack and score LPs, coming September 22nd.

You can pre-order them now on Amoeba.com and they'll ship FREE to U.S. addresses. But hurry, these limited edition LPs won't last long! (Limit 1 per customer, please.)

fka twigs lp1FKA Twigs LP1 was one of those cross-genre, unclassifiable albums that everyone seemed to love. Not only the best debut record of the year, perhaps the best, period.

Brad's Top 50 Albums of 2014

douglas dare#1 Douglas Dare - Whelm (Erased Tapes)
There are always a couple of albums like this every year. And I always just patiently wait for them. I just never know where they are gonna come from. I loved this album after the first listen. This album would clearly end up on the top of my most listened to albums of the year. Which naturally makes it my favorite. It is one of those albums that I prefer to listen to by myself since I am never sure if anyone is gonna like it as much as I do. Your favorite albums are the ones you keep going back to. The ones you want to start over as soon as they end. This is that album for me. An album I will always have close to my heart. This album is basically just Douglas stripped down bare with his songs and his piano. It is beautiful and heartbreaking. A fantastic debut album.



mac demarco#2 Mac DeMarco - Salad Days (Captured Tracks)
Mac DeMarco's second album was one of my favorites of 2012. Here he is again with his fantastic third album. I am still not exactly sure why I can't stop loving this dude. I actually will forget how much I love him until I go and put on his albums again and then fall in love all over again. This new album is another perfect mellow pop album. Perfect for a lazy day. It gets under your skin and becomes part of you. There is just no denying the talent of this dude. I can't help but feeling sometimes that he has somehow tricked my into liking him. You seriously can't help but love this album. There is nothing upbeat about this album. However it still manages to make me so happy every time I listen to it.
