nosaidjoe asked: I bought the new BC 2x7" from a store in Chicago and it's clear. I'm not complaining or anything, but is there a reason why it's not yellow as advertised on the blog?

One specific manufacturer pressed a limited number of 200 clear vinyl. Collectors item!

Expensive Looks - Dark Matters (LP & CD)

Alec Feld grew up in New York on a steady diet of Chicago house, disco, old Motown stuff and a smattering of his parents’ psych records, as well as “trashy ’90s dance.” Dark Matters is his debut LP as Expensive Looks. It flows continuously across nine tracks, touching on elements of all the music he grew up on: hypnotic house, textured minimalism, and the gorgeous moment of musical epiphany that happens when a beat drops out and all that’s left is the aural equivalent of taking a deep breath and staring at the stars. It’s a dance record with the sort of scrappy, open heart that can only come from someone like Feld. Expensive Looks is all encompassing, it draws from all genres without border, pulling everything into one warped but pointed mass. Dark Matters is available on CD and 500 red vinyl LPs. Shipping included in all prices.

Best Coast - Make You Mine double 7” colored vinyl with gatefold sleeve


It seems insane now, but when we started Group Tightener with Best Coast’s “Make You Mine” 7-inch we never anticipated her becoming the mega pop star she is today. Needless to say, we’re stoked. It couldn’t have happened to a better or more talented person. The only bummer is that we sold out of the records almost instantly, and it’s been unavailable since. We’re now bringing it back as a limited extra fancy double 7-inch gatefold edition on yellow vinyl at 45rpm. This is the last time this record will be available from us, so now would be a good time to get it! This pressing is limited to 2,000 records. Design and photography by Drew Heffron. Records will ship the week of November 15th. Shipping included in all prices.

Also, still available on iTunes and other digital shops.
