Daddy Kool Records Newsletter
Tuesday, June 5th, 2012
Happy Tuesday everyone! We have been restocking our bins with lots of great USED LPs lately. If you haven’t checked out our used LPs recently, you may want to give them a peek. Also we will be putting out quite a bit of new USED 7”s this week.
In other news, come check out Daddy Kool as we invade Florida’s largest anime convention, Metrocon. Not only are we going to completely nerd out but we will be bringing lots of our limited edition designer toys out with us along with some other goodies. We will be at booth F12 in the vendors room.
This Thursday, June 7th Futrama’s Wooden Bender 6-inch vinyl is officially downgraded and waging war on Daddy Kool Records! Complete with removable red woodpecker and “technology-free” stumpy head and body.

Alejandro Escovedo - “Big Station”
Big Station takes its cues from the catchier, zippier sides of R&B and new wave, to the extent that at times it sounds as tossed-off and frivolous as the train noises Escovedo makes on the title track. CD on sale all this month for $13.98!
Melody Gardot - “The Absence”

Kelly Hogan - “I Like To Keep Myself In Pain”
It’s nice to have talented friends. Kelly Hogan has collected dozens of them over the years in a career marked as much by her personal generosity as her remarkable singing voice, and ace songwriters such as Vic Chesnutt, Robyn Hitchcock and Stephin Merritt step up with some durable tunes. CD on sale all this month for $11.98!
Liars - “WIXIW”
WIXIW is dizzying, discordant and heavily rhythmic, as Andrew, Hemphill and Gross weave found sounds, freaky fragments of melancholy off-kilter melody, spiralling keyboard motifs, flurries of strings and distorted vocals and riffs through electronics that crunch and crack like shattered glass. Available on LP. CD on sale this week for $12.98!
The Melvins - “Freak Puke”
Despite the instrumental choices, the album is another solid headrush of epic, riffy rock from the elder statesmen. CD on sale for $11.98!

Rhett Miller - “The Dreamer”
Miller’s fourth solo album in a decades perhaps his most genuinely rustic. Featuring backup vocals by Rachael Yamagata and Rosanne Cash, its sad pedal steel and simple tropes might sound formulaic were Miller not so advanced at his craft. On sale this week for $10.98!
The Mynabirds - “Generals”
Generals is openhearted, politically engaged, feminist pop that, miraculously, never veers into schmaltz. The new album comes with bonus poster, sticker, and buttons. CD on sale all this month for $9.98!
New Bruises - “Chock Full Of Misery”
While still rooted in the anthemic pop-punk of their ’90s roots, New Bruises have cracked their sound wide open on Chock Full of Misery. The result is a record that hits harder, keeping the full-steam-ahead feel of early Jawbreaker while infusing it with the nuance of Tim-era Replacements. Available on LP.
OFF! - “OFF!”
OFF!’s first “proper” full-length record now available on LP.
Pujol - “United States Of Whatever”
With riff-oriented guitar playing reminiscent of greats like the Replacements and Beetlejuice-esque earworms, Pujol now sits atop the fringes of the rock & roll and DIY vernacular. CD on sale for $9.98!
Chris Robinson Brotherhood - “Big Moon Ritual”
A breathing kaleidoscopic thing stuffed with chooglin soul, bedrock boogie and shuffling wisdom birthed in intimate clubs and amongst the tall trees of the Golden State and eventually taken nationwide. On sale all this month for $10.98!

With Life Will Write The Words, Avary completely returns to his original DIY roots, recording the entire record himself on his own label Aviate Records. CD on sale this week for $9.98. See The Rocket Summer in concert June 19th at The State Theatre!
