Temporary COVID Hours:
Tuesday - Sunday : 12noon - 4pm

We are excited to offer a new virtual screening! Founded in 1969, CREEM Magazine rose from the ashes of the Detroit riots and ushered in a new era of raucous, participatory, journalism. With a wink and a nod, CREEM encouraged a certain irreverent, deprecatory and humorous tone, which permeated its pages and became its calling card. CREEM’s voice and aesthetic captured rock's spirit and energy in a way rivals could not replicate, and CREEM quickly established itself as an authentic voice in rock - as real as the artists themselves. In its heyday, CREEM was the most unflinching and uncompromising music magazine in America. 50 years later, it remains a seditious spirit in rock 'n' roll. Notable alumni include Lester Bangs, Dave Marsh, Patti Smith, Greil Marcus, Cameron Crowe, Robert Christgau, Jaan Uhelszki, and many more. Join us for an advanced screening of the documentary CREEM: America's Only Rock N Roll Magazine starting August 7th. Save the date. Grab your tix here!

As you've hopefully read by now, there is a statewide mandate for facial coverings at all public businesses. Governor Holcomb announced that everyone will be required to wear a mask both indoors and outside wherever social distancing is not possible. If you're out and about, Please **Properly** wear a mask, not just for you- but for the people you encounter. All of us in the service industry are trying to keep our doors open and stay healthy. Thank you for doing your part and your support. Please reach out if you need anything.

We are open for browsing Tuesday thru Sunday: 12-4PM (Closed Monday) and letting a handful of shoppers in at a time, so your wait time should be zero to not-long-at-all. Masks are still required for entry (and we have extra if you need one), we will sanitize your hands upon entry. Please help maintain a respectful distance from others while shopping or waiting outside. We are happy to hand off curbside orders, and shipping anywhere. If you don't see it on our Web Store send us an email or call. We are still fulfilling requests!

New Releases - July 31

Fontaines DC - A Hero's Death (Partisan)

Barely a year after the release of their acclaimed debut album 'Dogrel' (which charted Top 10 in the UK, earned a Mercury Prize nomination, Fallon performance, and #1 Album of the Year positions for BBC 6Music and Rough Trade), Fontaines DC have returned with an intensely confident, patient, and complex sophomore album. 'A Hero's Death' arrives battered and bruised, albeit beautiful - a heady and philosophical take on the modern world, and its great uncertainty.

William Tyler - Music from First Cow (Merge)

William composed the music for First Cow, the new A24 film directed by Kelly Reichardt, almost entirely on several of his guitars and a dulcimer. In First Cow, Kelly Reichardt once again trains her perceptive and patient eye on the Pacific Northwest, this time evoking an authentically hardscrabble early 19th century way of life. A taciturn loner and skilled cook has traveled west and joined a group of fur trappers in Oregon Territory, though he only finds true connection with a Chinese immigrant also seeking his fortune; soon the two collaborate on a successful business, although it's longevity is reliant upon the clandestine participation of a nearby wealthy landowner's prized milking cow. LP only!

Mike Polizze [Purling Hiss] - Long Lost Solace Find (Paradise of Bachelors)

The debut solo album from the erstwhile Purling Hiss frontman and Birds of Maya shredder- stepping out from behind the wall of guitar noise into the bright sunshine. Performed entirely by Polizze with longtime friend Kurt Vile and recorded by War on Drugs engineer Jeff Zeigler, this intimate Philadelphia affair clarifies the bittersweet earworm melodicism of Mike's songwriting, revealing bona fide folk-pop chops. Long Lost Solace Find finally harvests the wild local honey from the buzzing hive of Hiss.

Shirley Collins - Heart's Ease (Domino)

Heart's Ease follows 2017's Lodestar, Shirley Collins' first record in 38 years, and one that brought Shirley's widely missed voice back to fans. An album broader & brighter in tone than Lodestar, it finds Shirley exploring warmer themes and features three songs less rooted within the folk tradition. CD or LP available.
