Metalheads rejoice! Two great new albums get belated vinyl releases this week. The latest monsterpiece from SUNN 0))), Monoliths and Dimensions, is getting the typically deluxe vinyl treatment from Southern Lord. It's coming on 180g vinyl, stuffed into a "heavyweight cardboard 'tip-on' style' jacket" with double inner sleeves and a fold-out with lyrics and credits. The whole thing slides into a hardback-book-style velum dust jacket. It does not, unbelievably, cost $3,000; in fact, you can pick it up at the Southern Lord store for just $45.Also: the phenomenal new Blue Record from Baroness is also available on wax now, in a double-vinyl gatefold package that gives the 12-track album plenty of room to breathe.
On the COMPLETE other end of the musical spectrum, there are a ton of re-releases from the Of Montreal camp: Coquellicot Asleep in the Poppies, Aldhils Arboretum, The Early Four Track Recordings, The Bedside Drama, and The Bird Who Continues to Eat the Rabbit's Flower.
