What an amazing time!

Bill Frisell graced the store with his presence on a rainy night in Portland.  He played an incredible set, took requests, signed autographs, and took pictures with anyone who asked (and a lot of people asked).  He is truly an amazing artist, and a very kind person. We here at E.M. have the upmost respect for any artist who takes the time out to help a local independent record store increase traffic and visibility for the business.  Many thanks to the staff that helped for the event, and even more thanks to all the customers, old and new, who showed up on a rainy night to help make this event a truly memorable experience for all! As always, we thank you for your continued support.

BARB - Alcoholic Darling

Side project or super-group? I guess it all depends on who you ask. To any fan an album featuring artists such as Liam Finn, Eliza-Jane Barnes, and Lawrence Arabiawould of course be a super-group. But to the artists this was a chance to regroup with some old friends after extensive touring from their primary projects. Here is a collection of musical conversations that took place at that meeting, which turned into one hell of record.

If you are a Grind/Powerviolence/Fastcore/Thrash fan and haven't checked out THIS COMP KILLS FASCISTS VOL.2 yet...well, you should. IT KILLS. Clocking in over 70 minutes, this CD features a whole bunch of incredible bands that define where this scene is heading.

I may be biased, because my super-close Boise bros, Hummingbird of Death, are featured on this comp. But so are Portland's very own, Superbad.

(I love this compilation, and I'm pissed because my copy was jacked when my Jeep was broken into last month.)

Anyway, If you're interested in getting your face melted off with meaning, then stop by the store and check my pick shelf.

Lady Gaga is on fire!!!

Just when you think she couldn't put out another top selling album, she releases a remix cd that flies out the door!  Come on in and get it while you can!  On tuesday the 9th it goes on sale on cd!

Daptone is one of the best...

labels out there!  A creator owned label, that takes old school sounds, modernizes them, and sells them to the adoring masses.  Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings are the most well known on the label, but the new Budos Band release helps bring the funk back! Take a listen to this new track, and stop by on Tuesday to get the new release on cd or lp!  We have it on sale til the 23rd of August!

The Top-5 albums Levi is taking to the desert this weekend.

I’m helping my buddy Gabe with his Senior short film this weekend. It’s called “Escolta”. The next 3 days will be spent south of Burns, OR, where not much grows besides juniper and sagebrush. It will be a complete Bro-Fest,though, and I'm personally going to make sure we gots some great tunes.

Anyway, here are the 5 most important albums to ensure a good time for this one:

5. Blue Cheer-Vincebus Eruptum. There’s only one way to listen to this classic made by one of the original power trios from the 60s. Crank the volume up! It’s gonna be loud!

4. Hawkwind-Space Ritual. I have a feeling it’s going to get weird out there, so I might as well beat it to the punch. Hawkwind invented space rock, and this double disc is their swansong. It’s a total trip-out adventure from start to finish. Don't try to understand it, just like it.

3. Electric Wizard-Dopethrone. This British doom metal band made the perfect soundtrack for when you just can’t turn the damn heat off. This one feels like you could bake a meatloaf on a picnic table just by pushing play. It’s “Sweetleaf” slowed down, and it's HEAVY… HEAVY… HEAVY. Be forewarned… and be patient. (and don’t do drugs, kids.)

2. Tabla Beat Science-After enduring that last pick, I think I’ll probably need to chill-out a bit to some eastern-influenced electronica, featuring the prolific Bill Laswell and tabla master Zakir Hussain. It should be good for an epic sunset.


1. The Stooges-Funhouse. What better album is there to rally to after a long, hot day of shooting footage of 2 dudes pulling a handcart, than Iggy and Co.’s infamous! OWWW! Anyone wanna shotgun a PBR?

Honorable mentions: Turbonegro-Apocalypse Dudes, Cream-Disraeli Gears, CCR-Chronicles, and Carla Bozulich-Red Headed Stranger.

See ya’lls on Monday, that is if I don’t get bitten by a rattlesnake. Stop on by the store if you don’t have any of these. If we don’t have it, I bet we can order it.

Awhile ago...

we had the pleasure of hosting an awesome instore with local favorite band the Builders and Butchers. It was an awesome set, made even better by our friends at Black Sheep Bakery and Voodoo Doughnuts both of whom donated treats to support us and the band. They played to a packed store. I've attached some pictures so you can all get the feel of the fun time had by both our customers, and the staff.
Also, they have a new live
cd out titled "
Where the roots all grow". Stop by one of our many stores and pick up a copy!

A little while ago...

we had the pleasure of having local portland band Builders and Butchers play an instore at our Sandy Blvd. location.
