>Washed Out - Purple Noon (Black Vinyl Edition) VINYL LP
Washed Out is Atlanta-based producer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Ernest Greene. Over the course of three uniquely enchanting, critically lauded albums and an EP, the music he makes has proved both transportive and visual, each new effort inviting listeners into immersive, self-contained universes. Each Washed Out release has been rooted in a form of escapism, but coupled with a new layer of emotional intensity, Purple Noon takes the project's music to dazzling new heights. The coastlines of the Mediterranean inspire Purple Noon, and Greene pays tribute to the region's distinct island culture – with all of its rugged elegance and old-world charm – and uses it as a backdrop to tell the album's stories of passion, love, and loss (its title comes from the 1960 film directed by Rene Clement, which is based on the novel The Talented Mister Ripley by Patricia Highsmith).

>THE STOOGES - LIVE AT GOOSE LAKE: AUGUST 8TH 1970 VINYL LP
Leave it to Third Man Records!
Found buried in the basement of a Michigan farmhouse amongst other tasty analog artifacts of the same era, the 1/4” stereo two-track tape of the Stooges complete performance at Goose Lake on August 8th, 1970 is the Rosetta Stone for fans of this seminal band. Not only is this the last ever performance of the original godhead Stooges line-up, but it is the ONLY known soundboard recording of said line-up. Playing the entirety of their canonical 1970 masterpiece Fun House, the sound, the performance, everything about this record is revelatory.

Oh, never mind—this iteration of a long-running joke between Nat Russell and myself finally took a beautiful, surreal, evolution when Justin Shimp (of

>MR. KINETIK
MONTHLY D.J. SET / SOUL VIBRATION SESSION
"Movers & Groovers,
My family and friends at LUNA music in Indianapolis host my monthly DJ event the
Soul Vibration Session. I love this event and it is one of my favorite moments of my month. With the rise and spread of COVID-19, Luna has closed the storefront to the public but they are still shipping music and other goodies to customers! Hit them up and get your music and music accessories game tight.
This mix is my monthly 4-hour DJ session. I recorded this at my home base and ran through a range of tunes just like I would if I was at LUNA. You can listen to it right here and it will also be sent out on my podcast channel. Enjoy it freely and share it freely as well. I hope y’all are living well outchea in these wild times. I love you all.
The P.E.A.C.E."—Mr. Kinetik
