    Light LP delayed

    September 16, 2014

    Light is here... and then it wasn't. After many delays with the fabulous Loren Connors and Clint Heidorn debut collaboration, the crystal-clear, one-sided LPs finally arrived. We were ecstatic. Then we played a copy and the record skipped. So we played another -- and then the needle jumped out of the groove. And on and on... each copy of the LP had some type of defect in the first few rotations. The record is being repressed -- which is great, of course -- but it will be another delay before Light is finally complete. The release date has been adjusted to Dec. 2.

    Above is a photo of how the finished record will look. The artwork is two pieces of Connors’ art -- a detail of a recontextualized Matisse painting. One piece is transparent plastic, the other paper. Together, the opaque block of 11-inch x 11-inch sheets are intended to be hung in your window so the light can illuminate the hidden colors. A full-color postcard of Connors' full piece is also included.

    It will be worth the wait...

    Akira Sakata's live LP back in stock

    September 8, 2014

    You thought it was out of print but Live at Hungry Brain -- the outrageous document of Akira Sakata and Chikamorachi at Chicago's Umbrella Festival -- is back. Well, actually, we just found a box of LPs hidden behind some of the life-size plush dolls of Sakata, Corsano and Gray that we keep in the basement. If you need a refresher of what these three do, see below:
