First up, DAVID BOWIE! Not only do we have BLACKSTAR back in stock on vinyl, but we also have six of Bowie's classic titles RE-MASTERED and REISSUED on 180-gram vinyl for 2016! The titles available are Hunky Dory, David Bowie AKA Space Oddity, Pinups, Aladdin Sane, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, and The Man Who Sold the World. Limited supply available so order while you can!
Alright, enough with the reissues! Let's get to some of our favorite NEW RELEASES!
One of our favorite new releases this year is the most recent album by the 1975! Simply titled I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It, this album brings the same glistening guitars, driving beats, and catchy vocal riffs that we fell in love with when the 1975 first got big a couple years ago!
Another favorite new release is MADONNA MASHUPS Vol. 2! This CD takes some of your favorite Madonna hits and mashes them up with songs by some of our other favorite artists including the Scissor Sisters, Justin Timberlake, Tears For Fears, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and more!! You'll be dancing all night long to this one!
Some other new releases we love include Wet - Don't You, Santigold - 99 Cents, and Ke$ha - Demos & Unreleased. The final title is a compilation of Kesha's best unreleased songs -- ones she recorded that didn't make it to a record. A few of the songs on this CD were eventually recorded and officially released by other artists including the Veronicas and Miranda Cosgrove. This CD will remind you why you fell in love with Ke$ha all those years ago! #freekesha

Now let's talk music.
Sia's "This Is Acting" is the first album I'd like to single out in this post. This conglomeration of songs written for other artists has a kind of natural flow that only Sia could create. The feeling that this truly is a work of art doesn't affect the catchy dance-pop music we're used to hearing from Sia. Some favorites off of this album are "Broken Glass" and "Cheap Thrills;" the latter of which was originally intended for Rihanna whose new album "Anti" just came out as well.
We share with all of our fellow music fanatics in mourning the loss of David Bowie this year. He didn't leave us empty handed though -- Bowie dropped his twenty-fifth album "Blackstar" just days before passing away. Our review: a haunting, jazz influenced masterpiece documenting the emotions and thoughts of someone approaching the end of their life. A stunning final album that will go down in history as one of the best.
Some other albums we're loving so far this year (click on the artist names to be taken to their page!) -- Wet "Don't You", Panic! At the Disco "Death of a Bachelor", Elton John "Crazy Wonderful Life", and Rihanna "ANTI"!
Based on how it's already looking -- we know 2016 is going to be a great year in music! We can't wait to enjoy it with all of you!
