of the nearly 200 records I brought with me back from California, this is among the most interesting ones.
Departmentstore Santas - At The Medieval Castle Nineteen 100-Year Lifetimes Since (1984 Top Shelf Records / 2015 Superior Viaduct).
I visited Stranded, SF (the record store of Superior Viaduct) twice while I was there. Their selection was curated the way I like it and the reissues they do are right up my alley, I found out.
Only thing I knew about SV was that they had been doing a stack of The Fall reissues lately, but I knew little about their other reissues. I was playing some of their reissue releases on Spotify while browsing their records (thank you internet in the US plan) and I picked up those that sounded interesting at first listen.
The main reason for my second visit was that this particular record needed a second listen before I caught on, but then it overwhelmed me completely.
One of my favorite buys from the trip.
