2011 Faves and other News

Welcome back to the Rediscover Records music blog (Why do we feel the need to chuckle at the words "music blog"?) where you can find news and updates to all things Rediscover Records.

We are always looking to stock the best in new releases and we found that 2011 had no shortage of great releases. Here were a just a few of our favorite records of 2011!

-Lydia Loveless - Indestructible Machine
-Wild Flag - Wild Flag
-The Decemberists - The King Is Dead (Yes, the title is an homage to The Smiths)
-Frank Turner - England Keep My Bones
-Okkervil River - I Am Very Far
-Centro-matic - Candidates Waltz
-Richard Buckner - Our Blood
-Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit - Hear We Rest

Here is Jason Isbell with "Alabama Pines"

We were really struck by the Wheedles Groove Box Set, which is a wonderful selection of 45's from Seattle's funk and soul scene from the 1965 to the late 1970's. (Read more about it in the different colored font above). You can order from our website as well with our secure "Buy Now" pay pal buttons. They bring you directly to your own pay pal account.

Other news, the Louvin Brothers reissues are fantastic. Get your really old school country on with the Louvins! Inspirations to generations of singers and songwriters.

We are also particularly fond of the recent reissue of Morphine's "Cure For Pain". Find the classic reissue on vinyl at Rediscover Records.

Now, of course, our blog entries are time sensitive, so if you are reading this weeks or months from the date, shoot us an email (, a phone call (847.961.8445) or check our website to make sure some of these releases are still in stock. Thanks for reading and as always, Keep 'Em Spinnin'!
