Buying records in Philadelphia is much harder than it should be. While we have a few decent record stores, none of them ever seem to actually get new releases (at least in the two weeks surrounding their release) instead offering a friendly “we can order it for you though” in place of the CD/LP/Cassette I want.
So while waiting for ‘The Godward Way’ to arrive from Thrill Jockey I swung by Repo Records on South Street to see if there was anything new and interesting out that I may not have heard of and was surprised to see yet another new Higgs release.
From Wild Sages:
WSR5 DANIEL HIGGS Cassette & Digital Download + 3 Songs @ around 13 Minutes Recorded In A Wintery 2010/11 by Nathan Bell & Re-Mixed By N. Shineywater, Mastered in LA using 1930’s era EQ, this unique combo of Digital Download MP3 & 2 Sided Cassette compliments modern & vintage listening devices. (sold separate)
As the cover art suggests a mighty lion holding the sun, eating floating green diamonds, we bet the track “Throne Of The Kind A Light Upon My Mind“ will get your lion a little more iron!
