Sunday style vibes…
Three big deliveries of wax in this week, including this select of new & classics titles… but without a doubt THE most exciting for us is the limited edition re-press of Rowland S. Howard’s
masterpiece ‘Pop Crimes. Such an important Australian artist. A truly remarkable record. Thankyou Rowland.
Vintage Polaroid good times! This mix bag of 1980′s Polaroid beauty came in today. Oh the simple pleasures!
Jack is back!! The trick laden ‘Lazaretto’ ULTRA LP is now back in-stock… hidden tracks, concentric grooves, 45rpm AND 78rpm. Epic!
Just in… the all new Impossible Project Special Edition Color Skin Polaroid film… a wild departure from the classic, square white frame indeed. Each print features frames patterned with zebra, rattlesnake, tiger, crocodile, fish, giraffe, leopard and iguana skins. Wowzers!! Limited stocks.
For the Gallo fans… on vinyl for the first time, the soundtrack to Vincent’s controversial classic The Brown Bunny. Featuring previously unreleased tracks by John Frusciante, housed in a deluxe tip-on gatefold sleeve on 180gram vinyl and limited to 1000 copies. We landed the very last 4 copies in oz!
Just landed, Komono Vs Jean Michel Basquiat curated watch series, only available through a handful of stockists, we are stoked to be apart of this collaboration. Each watch in the collection boasts a unique printed wristband depicting a different detail of a particular Basquiat painting. No two watches are the same… But they are all awesome!
Introducing DEADWOOD, the latest addition to the Abicus coupe. Based in Stockholm, Deadwood Leather is all about sustainability with a leather recycling program in which the classic biker jacket is at the core. Our first delivery just landed and oh boy! the leather is so super soft and the jacket….well, totally bad-ass!
“My introduction to all this great music and to ‘the music business’ came from hanging around, and eventually, working at independent record stores. Nothing beats browsing in your favorite store, listening to music, finding something new or old that you’ve been searching for, all that. And without these stores, there’s just no way Wilco would still be around.”
It’s here! Ryan Adam’s masterpiece ”Love is Hell”, long out of print on vinyl and for the first time on Super Deluxe 180gram Audiophile 3LP pressing. Numbered, Limited Edition box-set with 7 extra tracks… very special indeed!
We have just 3 copies. It’s a little pricey, but I assure… it will be worth a whole lot more in the years to come. But most importantly, it’s an Original Master Recording pressing by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab… their pressing are the ultimate!… true audiophile.
From the bush to the beach… we are so lucky to live in an amazing country. Happy Australia day to you all.
peace lou… thank you for the music.
Warp have decided to repress their entire back catalogue on Vinyl for the first time in 5 years!!

Abicus Presents ‘Space Milk’, a collection of new work by Sydney artist & musician Presser Towner, aka Dead Galaxy.This is Presser’s first solo show in Newcastle and it will coincide with the launch of the new Abicus.
The exhibition will include 200 small format one-off collage works on paper that were created during 2009 on Presser’s lunch breaks at Inertia Music. (Presser has been supplying Abicus with cd’s & Vinyl through Inertia for the best part of 10 years.)
He is also one of the founding members of iconic 90′s indie heroe’s Gerling.Presser has since stepped aside from writing & recording music to pursue his artistic visions through Dead Galaxy.
Singer-songwriter Mikal Cronin just released his sophomore record “MCII” a few months ago and its been glued to my ears ever since. Building on a perfect mix of garage rock, fuzzed out guitars & classic pop song writing, theres no doubt Mikal has matured as an artist since the release of his self titled debut record.
Opening tracks “Weight” & “Shout it Out” set the tone for most of the record, with breezy verses that explode into huge choruses, at times very reminiscent of band mate and fellow californian Ty Segall. But the biggest drawcard of this outstanding record is it’s diversity. Cronin’s ability to swiftly change from a sing-along pop tune to a sparse piano ballad proves the calibre of his talent as an artist. Earning himself rave reviews from the likes of Pitchfork & Spin Magazine, Cronin is easily one of the most exciting new artists of this year!
We have a few copies on wax in-store right now so hurry in, they wont be round for much longer!
