On Record Store Day, I picked up this EARTH LP from Armageddon Shop. If you liked The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull record from 2008 then this is for you. It barely resembles older EARTH records though...just to warn those who have not heard their recent stuff.

Anyway, I really like it.

And now for something completely different

While browsing the Electro Harmonix website to see if they had any new crazy guitar effects coming out, I found this link on their page. It is this band Pomplamoose. Actually, the original link was just the dude (Jack Conte), but then I found more links for his "band" on youtube.

These two are adorable.

The basic deal is that he plays every instrument himself and videotapes everything. Then, he edits the video in a way that you can basically see him creating the song. The music is super sweet stuff ...kinda New Pornographers/Aisler Set/Moldy Peaches. Even if you hate the sound of that, you should watch just one of these.

-- EDIT: In some of the vids, the lady friend also plays instruments. I didnt see that in some of these until now. The ones I saw at first were all just him. --

Here is the first click I watched, which is more Elliot Smithy

And another with both of them:

and here they are covering Michael Jackson's Beat It:

Providence folks: We got in a chunk of random old Out Of Print local EP's and LP's, and some Test Pressings of a few local releases.
