I’m digging the new Wax Tailor project. Wax Tailor, aka Jean-Christophe Le Saoût, is a French trip hop/hip hop producer who has now released his fourth studio album, By Any Beats Necessary.
The videos alone are major, artistic efforts with loads of loving details (check out Worldwide below). The lyrics are a (mostly) hopeful vision of the future and are meant to be listened to, but the music also stands alone, and does, in the instrumental offered on a separate disc.
The vinyl comes with a special chance to win a floating turntable. Seriously cool. Just email your proof of purchase (make certain you grab your receipt from us!) to Wax Tailor by December 11th for a chance to win! Details on the vinyl.
Oh, and did I mention the price? He’s got it priced very reasonably at $23.99 (double vinyl) and $18.99 (double CD). Makes me happy. 🙂
It must be fall because the new releases are coming faster than leaves from tree! First release of note this Friday:
Bruce Springsteen’s Chapter and Verse
A double LP with five (5!) unreleased tracks that were recorded before the Boss was signed to a label … meaning you haven’t likely heard these songs unless you’ve been buying up his bootleg recordings over the years. This album accompanies a new book titled Born to Run, to be released September 27. Being on friendly terms with the good people at Book Express, I am happy to say that copies of the book are now in their backroom ready for next Tuesday. Do the world a favour and buy your new books from local, independent booksellers such as Book Express.
Chapter and Verse features 18 tracks. Each song reflects the themes and sections of the book, starting with two tracks from Springsteen’s first band, The Castiles. The final song is the title track from Bruce’s 2012’s disc,Wrecking Ball.
