Saturday is our annual Cassette Tape Day! This year's celebration is simple: Used Cassettes are half price. We also have some pre-made bundles of 5 for $1. In addition we have a small selection of new releases on tape and the widest selection of local and standard releases, probably in all of Indiana! Stop by and check it out.

To celebrate the upcoming release of John Carpenter's Halloween 2018 Soundtrack, Sacred Bones has decided to partner with 25 independent record stores on release weekend, October 19, for a nationwide trick or treat/record release party. Participants will receive custom trick or treat bags designed by Sacred Bones and can enter-to-win a free copy of the record as well as a special surprise!

New Releases - October 12

Kurt Vile - Bottle It In (Matador)

Using past albums as points of departure, Bottle It In heads off in new directions, pushing at the edges of the map into unexplored territory: Here be monster jams. He revels in the minutiae of the music— not simply incorporating new instruments but emphasizing how they interact with his guitar and voice, how the glockenspiel evokes cirrocumulus clouds and how Kim Gordon's "acoustic guitar distortion" engulfs everything and how the banjo curls around his guitar lines and backing vocals from Lucius to lend a high-lonesome aura.

Elvis Costello & The Imposters - Look Now (Concord)

Look Now is beautiful in its simplicity, reflective in its lyrical vision, surrounded by melodies and orchestrations that are nothing short of heavenly. It's the first album Costello has made with The Imposters since the 2008 release of Momofuku and his first new album since the acclaimed 2013 Roots collaboration, Wise Up Ghost. Most of the titles were written solely by Elvis although, 'Don't Look Now' and 'Photographs Can Lie' were co-written with Burt Bacharach, who makes a guest appearance from the piano. The album was co-produced by Elvis and Sebastian Krys - a Latin Grammy Producer of the Year, whose love and understanding of music spans both hemispheres.

John Hiatt - The Eclipse Sessions (New West)

Long celebrated as a skilled storyteller and keen observer of life's twists and turns, Hiatt can get at the heart of a knotty emotion or a moment in time with just a sharp, incisive lyric or witty turn of phrase. The 11 tracks presented here demonstrate that the singer-songwriter, now 66, is only getting better with age, his guitar playing more rugged and rootsy, his words wiser and more wry. There's a grit to these songs' a craggy, perfectly-imperfect quality that colors every aspect of the performances, right down to Hiatt's vocals, which are quite possibly his most raw and expressive to date.

Yves Tumor - Safe in the Hands of Love (Warp)

Ever the sonic chameleon, Yves blew the minds of fans with the first single Noid, while welcoming an unwitting new audience into his world. Safe in the Hands of Love sees Yves peaking out of the shadows with strong vocals and amped up production, channeling energy into deeply psychedelic and emotional compositions that manage to balance rampant experimentation with an indiosyncratic pop sensibility. From noise and industrial denizens to adventurous beat heads and a much wider field of adventurous music lovers of all kinds, Yves maintaings a curiously wide appeal.

The Bottle Rockets - Bit Logic (Bloodshot)

Formed nearly 30 years ago, The Rockets helped forge a now popular subgenre- small-town, middle-class, Midwest American roots rock- part right-to-the-gut poetry, part rock'n'roll, all truth. Bit Logic is a different sort of album for the St. Louis natives and shows them at their most self-aware, self-challenging, and socially alert. While one of the group's earmarks is constructing blue-collar anthems, Bit Logic has the quartet focusing outside themselves, at how change and adaptation affects the bigger picture.

St. Vincent - MassEducation (Loma Vista)

When Annie Clark was mixing last year’s critically acclaimed Masseduction, she cut another version of the same album that she’s since dubbed MassEducation. The reworked LP, features only her on vocals and Thomas Bartlett on piano. She described the record in a statement as "two dear friends playing songs together with the kind of secret understanding one can only get through endless nights in New York City."

Colter Wall - Songs Of The Plains (Young Marys)

After two years of relentless touring, Colter wanted to make an album about home. Drawing on the stories of Saskatchewan, the young songwriter's corner of the world takes shape throughout his second album, Songs of the Plains. Produced by Dave Cobb in Nashville's Studio A, the project combines striking original folk songs, well-chosen outside cuts, and a couple of traditional songs that reflect his roots growing up in the small city of Swift Current. Bonus poster w/ purchase!

Matthew Dear - Bunny (Ghostly)

Matthew Dear is a shapeshifter, oscillating seamlessly between DJ, dance-music producer, and experimental pop auteur. He writes, produces, and mixes all of his work. He straddles multiple musical worlds and belongs to none, now nearly 20 years into his kaleidoscopic career, with 5 albums and two dozen EPs plus millions of miles in the rearview of his biography. Bunny follows both modes, among others, parading down a rabbit hole of unhinged phrasings, dreams, and interludes. It saunters in the shadows; it stands brightly in the moonlight. It is a dual vision of avant-pop; an artistic reckoning from a 21st-century polymath; persona splintered, paradox paraphrased, a riddle rendered.
