We launched a record, shirt, and toy store back in January, and to help you keep up with what we have available, including new releases, pre-orders, exclusive vinyl variants, and things we're just excited to have in stock, we'll be rounding up some of our vinyl selection every week. This week's highlights:

THE SHINS - OH INVERTED WORLD 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
(a fully remastered, "Limited Loser Edition" of the indie classic)

The Shins' 2001 debut, Garden State's life-changing "New Slang" included, is a genuine indie classic, and its 20th anniversary is an occasion worth celebrating. This "Limited Loser Edition" includes the fully remastered album, pressed to light blue and white marble vinyl, with a die-cut jacket (the original album art colors have been inverted) and new booklet featuring vintage photos, handwritten lyrics, liner notes, and more.

JOSÉ GONZÁLEZ - LOCAL VALLEY
(just announced new album -- BV exclusive pressing)

José González calls his anticipated first album in six years "a natural continuation of the styles I’ve been adding through the years both solo and with Junip," and the songs we've heard from it so far, "El Invento" and "Visions," are gorgeous. Available exclusively in our shop is this 140g red vinyl pressing, limited to just 500 copies. [GET IT]

AFI - ALL HALLOWS EP
(a classic on orange vinyl)

Originally released in 1999, this special 2014 edition of AFI's classic All Hallows EP is pressed to orange vinyl to commemorate its 15th anniversary. It goes without saying that that the color fits perfectly with the album art, and cover of Misfits' "Halloween" that's featured, along with three other songs. [GET IT]

SUFJAN STEVENS RECORDS
(four essentials from throughout his discography)

All four of these Sufjan Stevens albums must-haves. There are the two entries in his abbreviated "50 states project," Michigan and Illinois, each rich with history and depth; the haunting folk of Seven Swans; & Carrie & Lowell, a modern masterpiece & harrowing account of loss. [GET EM]

FIDDLEHEAD - BETWEEN THE RICHNESS
(anticipated sophomore album, pressed to blue and white galaxy swirl vinyl)

Have Heart/Basement-related post-hardcore band Fiddlehead's second album is shaping up to be a good one. We called the most recent single, "Heart to Heart," "a darker, more atmospheric, more shapeshifting song that recalls the arty side of mid '90s post-hardcore," continuing that when vocalist Pat Flynn "brings his voice to a throat-shredding scream on the coda, it really feels like it's coming straight from the heart."

QUICKSAND - INTERIORS
(two colored variants of their long-awaited return)

Quicksand are again up to something, but in 2017 they unleashed their first batch of new songs since 1995 into the world, and they rip. We wrote, "Interiors may come 22 years after 1995's Manic Compression, but as far as its thunderous riffs and Walter's soaring vocals go, it sounds mostly like it also could've been that album's followup in 1997. That's not a bad thing at all, especially with the large amount of active bands that take clear influence from Quicksand -- from still-popular acts like Thursday, Glassjaw, and Deftones (the latter of which have counted Quicksand's Sergio Vega as a member since 2009) to newer acts like Title Fight, Balance & Composure, and Superheaven. And there is a modern touch. It was co-produced by Will Yip (who frequently works with Title Fight, Balance & Composure, and Superheaven, and who previously collaborated with Walter Schreifels on Title Fight's 2011 album Shed), and Yip manages to put a contemporary twist on Quicksand's sound without changing any of their signature traits." We have two different colored vinyl variants: orange and clear with black smoke. [GET THEM]
