    RSD Black Friday

    RSD Black Friday

    Friday November 27th

    Doors Open @9am

    It's that time of year again for the Black Friday (Record Store Day) event! We will use the same setup as we have the last 3 months for the Record Store Day Drops. (More info below)

    The big statement we’d like to convey is that this ISN’T A NORMAL RECORD STORE DAY.  We cannot have huge crowds in the store, big lines, food and drink, or band performances.  These RSD Black Friday will be all about the music and the titles released this year.  It’s a great list so take a look if you haven’t yet.  Black Friday - List Of Titles

    Click this link to see all the RSD titles we will be stocking and at which location----> DOWN IN THE VALLEY RSD TITLE LIST (list will be live Nov.25th)

    Guidelines/Rules for RSD Black Friday

     

    1. Golden Valley and Maple Grove will be the two Down In The Valley locations with RSDBF titles on November 27th. Our Crystal store will be supporting our stores by being the outlet for everything non-RSDBF like smoking accessories, gifts, clothing, etc. If you aren’t coming for RSDBF titles, we suggest visiting our Crystal location to avoid wait times.
    2. There will be a limit to the number of customers in the store at one time. Golden Valley-15 / Maple Grove-10 as per our covid-related policy. We will rotate customers into the store on a one-out/one-in per individual. (Sorry, we cannot accommodate groups or children under the age of 12 this year)
    3. The physical line—We discourage everyone from creating a line before 7am this year for the safety of all DITV customers. When you show up, please wear a mask and stay 6 feet apart from your fellow RSD fans in line.  At around 8am, an employee will start placing you in a virtual line cue.  (In previous events, we usually see folks lining up at midnight the night before the event but we don’t want that this year)
    4. The Virtual Line— Once in the virtual line, our app will communicate with you via text message. You will be able to see your spot in line and the estimate wait time. This is no different than standing on the sidewalk as in year’s past except you can do that in your car, a nearby park, or wherever you choose.  Grab a coffee and visit a nearby park or read a book are a couple ideas.  You will be alerted 5 minutes before it is your time to come to the door. Also, while waiting, please look at the list and get your RSD picks organized to save time once inside.
    5. In The Store—Yes, you’ve arrived in the store! (with a mask on) This year we have increased the number of picks to: VIP Members- 8 titles / Non-VIP- 6 titles. We will not sell you multiple copies of the same RSD title.  Once inside, we ask you to limit your time in the store to 15 or 20 minutes and then check-out.  You can shop other items while in the store but we just ask that you do it expediently for the fairness of everyone that would like to shop that day. Remember that you were once one of the customers on the other side of the door.
    6. RSD Titles: We bought just as much RSDBF stock as last year and didn’t cut our orders at all. That means you can expect that our stores will have all the depth of titles you’ve procured in previous RSDBF years. Friday, we will post the titles that each Golden Valley and Maple Grove will be stocking as there are some small variations and we’d like to make it easier for you which store to choose to visit.  Keep in mind, Golden Valley will have more RSDBF stock but longer lines.  Maple Grove will have a smaller line but a smaller amount comparatively.  Either way we will still have hundreds of RSDBF records!  Also, many of you know that you can always find a lot of the highly-sought after RSDBF titles on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday following the event so if you don’t make it, don’t sweat it.

    We want everyone to have a great experience so please wear a mask, stay socially-distanced in lines/store, and be courteous to other customers.  We appreciate all our customers and will work our ass off to make this a great event (NON-EVENT) in this Covid-World of the new (Ab)normal.

    Various Artists - Southeast Of Saturn

    Various Artists - Southeast Of Saturn - Third Man Vinyl
    It makes sense that Detroit had a buzzy, thriving space-rock scene in the ‘90s. What American city’s denizens had a more urgent need to disengage and think outside the grim, post-industrial rustbelt realities? With space-rock (and its close sonic cousin shoegaze) being at once expansive and introspective, it naturally appealed to the young, intelligent artists who gravitated toward its vertiginous orbit. The music of Southeast Of Saturn did not arise organically from metro Detroit’s fertile soil. Locally, garage-rock, goth-rock, neo-hippie groups, and the usual preponderance of adequate bar bands dominated the landscape. Thirsty Forest Animals guitarist Andrew Peters summarizes the prevalent attitude among the Motor City’s space-rock contingent: “I don’t think we really noticed the local Detroit scene earlier on. We were more into the bands you would see in the NME / Melody Maker, zines, and records - mostly from the UK - on the walls at Play It Again”. If anything was a major factor locally, it was Play It Again, the independent record store in the suburbs of Detroit that nurtured the scene with its amazing curation of imports and killer used records picked up on owner Alan Kovan’s British record buying trips.  Penned “Detroit Space-Rock”, the scene centered around Burnt Hair Records, Burnt Hair CEO Larry Hoffman’s Life According To Larry radio show, Zoot’s Coffeehouse and bands, such as Windy & Carl, Asha Vida, Füxa, Auburn Lull, and Majesty Crush. It was a modern movement of a more traditional “space-rock” sound, influenced less by The Stooges and MC5 and more by Spacemen 3, Loop, My Bloody Valentine and krautrock bands like Can and Neu!. Even the best-known artists on Southeast Of Saturn - Windy & Carl, Majesty Crush, Füxa - never achieved mainstream success, but within the rock underground, they inspired a cultish devotion that burns to this day.  If you missed their evanescent output the first time around, this compilation will get you up to speed over its 19 mind-altering tracks.

    The Menzingers - From Exile

    The Menzingers - From Exile - Epitaph
    Philadelphia-based indie rockers, The Menzingers made great use of their free time during this summer's stay at home order by recording a "re-imagined" acoustic version of their brilliant 2019 album "Hello Exile." Since forming as teenagers in 2006, The Menzingers have shown their strength as rough-and-tumble storytellers, turning out songs equally rooted in frenetic energy and lifelike detail. On From Exile, the band took their lyrical narrative to a whole new level and share their reflections on moments from the past and present: high-school hellraising, troubled relationships, aging and alcohol and political ennui. And while their songs often reveal certain painful truths, they ultimately maintain the irrepressible spirit that's always defined the band. These acoustic interpretations show once again how beautifully crafted these songs really are.

    Boris - Amplifier Worship

    Boris - Amplifier Worship - Third Man Vinyl

    Formed in 1992, Boris boldly explores their own vision of heavy music, where words like “explosive” and “thunderous” barely do justice. Using overpowering soundscapes embellished with copious amounts of lighting and billow smoke, Boris has shared with audiences across the planet an experience for all five senses in their concerts, earning legions of zealous fans along the way. First released in 1998, catalog staple Amplifier Worship will see its first-ever reissue with minimalistic album art from the first-press Japanese CD on November 13, 2020 via Third Man Records. The Stoughton gatefold jacket will house both officially remastered LPs, pressed at Third Man Pressing. This will also serve as Amplifier Worship’s long-awaited debut across digital streaming services. Amplifier Worship is Boris’s most intense and unrelenting album to date. Not for the faint of heart, the group incorporates mythic doom-drones, up-tempo psych-sludge and even a refreshing ribbit into their signature concoction of celestial and heavy music. Amplifier Worship is a critical chapter in the Boris canon. The album is a testament to the group's bullishness in pushing metal to it’s uncomfortable and unfamiliar edges. And it is also undoubtedly one of their best.

    Boris - Absolutego

    Boris - Absolutego - Third Man Vinyl
    Formed in 1992, Boris boldly explores their own vision of heavy music, where words like "explosive" and "thunderous" barely do justice. Using overpowering soundscapes embellished with copious amounts of lighting and billow smoke, Boris has shared with audiences across the planet an experience for all five senses in their concerts, earning legions of zealous fans along the way. Absolutego is a trek over a staggering mountain of sound. The tension builds with wave after wave of massive feedback, drums leading into a crushing crescendo of full-band repetition and clarity before descending deeper until finally reaching a surreal divebomb purring drone finale. This song takes notes out of the Melvins playbook and pushes the sound to it's absolute logical and visceral extreme. It sets a solid foundation for why Boris is considered to be one of the most important metal bands of the 21st century.

    Heather Trost - Petrichor

    Heather Trost - Petrichor - Third Man Vinyl LLC
    It’s hard to not get jaded about music itself when one deals with the ins and outs on a daily basis of what remains of the music industry. And then, well, you know how it is--when presented with music that’s actually fresh and unique, or simply fucking good, not only are we reunited with the reason we all are grinding away here, but it’s very difficult to not resort to superlatives. So we will do our best to stick to the facts here. But just do yourself a huge favor, and let this album wash over you, right now. Third Man Records is chuffed to present to you the New Mexico-based artist Heather Trost’s second or third solo full-length. Petrichor is fresh, unique, and really fucking good. Sonically, this modern psychedelic pop music is as experimental as it is accessible. Petrichor was recorded between 2018 and 2019 by Heather Trost and her husband Jeremy Barnes (Neutral Milk Hotel) at their home studio. The two are community activists, urban gardeners, and full-time musicians.

    Limited 11 vinyl LP set. Includes fully remastered studio album plus 20 page booklet. 9 track b-sides, out-takes and alternate versions.

It didn't hurt that Bono and co. Had their best batch of songs in years at the ready; all this combined to catapult All That You Can’t Leave Behind to #1 in 32 countries.

    Ben Harper - Winter Is For Lovers

    Ben Harper - Winter Is For Lovers - ANTI
    Winter Is For Lovers was a lifetime in the making... a solo lap-steel guitar piece incorporating elements of delta blues, flamenco, and even Satie-like minimalism, this work resonates with lyrical virtuosity, originality and soul. In some ways Winter Is For Lovers is a love letter to Ben Harper’s longtime fans who have always revered his guitar virtuosity; it’s the record they always wanted him to make. For many other music lovers, this record is a revelation, an unknown side to a celebrated artist showing a sense of meticulousness, depth and music history that will add new dimensions to an already renowned career. As a child, before Ben Harper was even playing music, he sat at the feet of folk luminaries like Rev Gary Davis, John Fahey, Ry Cooder and others in his grandparents Folk Music Center in Claremont, CA, soaking up their influence and passion for pure guitar music. As a teenager, while discovering his own musical gifts, he was repairing guitars and being mentored by many of these artists, most notably, Taj Mahal. While his musical path has taken him to worldwide fame playing rock and roll, and many other idioms, that pure guitar music has always been central to his musical heart. Ultimately, Winter Is For Lovers is a very personal statement from Ben Harper, drawing from the bountiful garden of his earliest musical impressions and propelling him into the future with an elegiac masterpiece.

    North Americans - Roped In

    North Americans - Roped In - Third Man Vinyl
    Patrick McDermott began his North Americans project with two albums: 2013’s No_No, and 2015’s Legends. Both records were dense affairs, with blocks of sound shifting and moving like melting glaciers to create a gorgeous, impenetrable, collection of digital drones. Though they sounded nothing like what would come a bit later, both records showcased McDermott’s understanding of mood and composition. On 2018’s Going Steady, McDermott blended his love of American Primitive guitar playing with playful pieces that never overstayed their welcome. He also began collaborating with a wide range of artists: from Julianna Barwick to guitar prodigy Hayden Pedigo, as well as Cloud Nothings’ Dylan Baldi, and more. Now, two years later, McDermott is releasing Roped In, a gorgeous, intimate, and often spare album that pulls back from the collaborative nature established on Going Steady for a collection of fragile drone pieces anchored by McDermott’s intricate but direct guitar playing and haunting pedal steel work from Portland, Oregon’s Barry Walker. Where Going Steady was brimming with ideas and micromovements, Roped In is relatively sparse, built on patience and the kind of once-in-a-lifetime collaborative energy between McDermott and Walker, and accented by occasional collaborations from harpist Mary Lattimore and guitarist William Tyler. “I wanted to focus on the simplicity of the music,” McDermott says. “I didn’t want to be beholden to this massive goal of [making music] to see how progressive and experimental it could be. I was attempting to cherish the pureness of this type of music.”

    Roger Waters - Us + Them - Sony Legacy
    Roger Waters: Us + Them, chronicles the acclaimed 2017-2018 tour of the iconic Pink Floyd artist. As the founding member, lyricist, composer and creative force behind Pink Floyd, US + THEM presents Waters powerful music in stunning form and highlights its’ message of human rights, liberty and love. Based around his acclaimed, sold-out US + THEM worldwide tour of 2017-18, comprising a total of 156 shows to 2.3 million people across the globe, it features classic songs from The Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here as well as his most recent album, Is This The Life We Really Want?  Waters powerfully demonstrates that he is at heart, a musical activist and one of the most passionate political commentators of his time. He has dedicated his life to fighting against those who seek to control our lives and destroy our planet. Welcome To The Machine and Another Brick In The Wall Part II, are a stark reminder of the bleak warnings that he gave decades ago about alienation, displacement, greed, suffering, destruction and loss. And yet the humanity of the songwriter cannot be more plainly seen than in Wish You Were Here, because, although he presents a grim picture of the state of the world, ultimately his message is one of hope through unity and love.

    Lana Del Rey - Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass - Interscope Records
    Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass is the title poem of the book and the first poem I wrote of many. Some of which came to me in their entirety, which I dictated and then typed out, and some that I worked laboriously picking apart each word to make the perfect poem. They are eclectic and honest and not trying to be anything other than what they are and for that reason I’m proud of them, especially because the spirit in which they were written was very authentic. — Lana Del Rey….The recording includes 14 poems performed by Lana Del Rey accompanied by music from Grammy Award-Winning songwriter/producer Jack Antonoff.

    The Nude Party - Midnight Manor


    The Nude Party - Midnight Manor - New West Records
    Midnight Manor, the much anticipated sophomore album of the six-piece rock outfit The Nude Party is out this week via New West Records. Following two years of non-stop touring in support of their eponymous debut release, the band returned to their farmhouse in New York's Catskill Mountains to record the follow up to their acclaimed 2018 self-titles debut. Like The Band's sacred home-recording habitat The Big Pink, The Nude Party's communal dwelling provided the landscape and proximity to focus on deepening their bonds through music. It was at the Manor that the band of childhood friends could shift their energies from the archetypical emotional journeys of mid-twenty-somethings towards rebuilding their road-worn relationships with one another, leading them to write Midnight Manor - an album that lead singer Patton Magee describes as "a stone skipping over troubled waters." With Midnight Manor, The Nude Party shine a light on their past while at the same time moving towards a brighter future.

    For his fourth album, Keep 'Em On They Toes, Brent Cobb is giving his songs the space they need to speak for themselves, a reflection of his own decision to write about the way he sees the world. “My last couple of albums have been about people and places, and I wanted this album to be about thoughts and feelings,” he says.  Keep ‘Em on They Toes, Cobb captures the mindset of a man who values a simpler time despite living in a modern world. “To me, listening to this album feels like I’m sitting there with somebody, having a conversation,” Cobb says. “I would hope that it feels like sitting with an old friend you haven’t seen in a while. There’s nothing like being alone and listening to an album that is quiet and conversational – like those old records by Jerry Lee Lewis, Roger Miller, or Willie Nelson. I hope my music is that way to somebody now.”

    Prince - Sign O’ The Times: Remastered - Warner Records
    Prince's iconic album, Sign O’ The Times, has been remastered for the very first time by Prince's original mastering engineer Bernie Grundman. Primarily recorded between the end of 1985 and beginning of 1987, the era saw the dissolution of his band The Revolution, the end of his engagement to Susannah Melvoin, and the creation (and ultimate abandonment) of the albums Dream Factory, Camille, and Crystal Ball. By the end of that period of transformation, Prince emerged with one of his most urgent and wide-ranging releases to date - an epochal double album that would be hailed as a creative, critical, and commercial triumph.

    Paris - Safe Space Invader

    Paris - Safe Space InvaderParis - Safe Space InvaderParis - Safe Space Invader - Guerrilla Funk
    In this era of reckoning for American policing, increases of racism fostered by the most incompetent president in modern times, and a global pandemic that has affected all areas of life as we once knew it, voices of dissent in entertainment have become more relevant than ever. Enter Paris, arguably one of the most politically outspoken artists in hip-hop history, with his latest album, Safe Space Invader.  Entirely self-produced and released on his own Guerrilla Funk Recordings imprint, Safe Space Invader is a brutal commentary on Black life in 2020 America, touching on the topics of police brutality, racism, gentrification, economic inequality and cancel culture, among others.

    Diana Krall - This Dream Of You

    Diana Krall - This Dream Of YouDiana Krall - This Dream Of YouDiana Krall - This Dream Of You - Impulse Records
    Diana Krall's new self-produced album, This Dream Of You, was mixed by Al Schmitt, who worked closely with her to achieve the notable intimacy and immediacy. Performances from 2016-2017 sessions, on which she collaborated with late friend/longtime creative partner Tommy LiPuma. A record for right now but also feels like a movie you might share with someone you know will stay with it until the final reel. As she says, "If But Beautiful is the overture, then `Singing In The Rain' is the end title.

    One of the first bands to overtly combine death metal with atmospheric keyboards, Nocturnus' debut album introduced more technical and progressive elements into the traditional death metal formula without losing any of the brutality. The audio for this vinyl is taken from the original tapes in Full Dynamic Range, allowing the music's nuances to shine through and giving the album a more immersive and dynamic sound than ever before.
