RSR PC 054 DOOM BEACH

This month we’re joined by Ryan and James of DOOM BEACH! From a band they named when they themselves thought very little of the band and its place in their lives to a band they’ve made a big part of their lives and now take some pride in crafting the sound of we talk about that journey and the process of the band and how that evolved. We talk about music we’re all listening to. We have a good time. Tales of Lightning Bolt and tour stops. Just four folks jawin’ away about music really.

Oh, and let’s not forget all the talk of the B-52’s – the very real inspiration for this beach themed duo!

Record Store Day Update 2022 (23rd of April)

We open at 8AM tomorrow (April 23rd, 2022) for Record Store Day. A full list of titles we’ll have available is at the bottom of this post.

Parking can be found in the normal area that is painted in our lot and overflow parking is basically in the abutting lots.

We ask that people lining up early please be safe and cordial to each other. The way to keep safest in our industrial zone is not to line up before sunrise. To be cordial and friendly with neighbors please keep spots in line if anyone needs to leave to use the bathroom and with that in mind the closest public bathroom is at West Center Market (44 S Tpke. Rd.) across the street and to the left.

RSD Quantity Disclaimer:
We hope we can please and fulfill the requests of a good deal of you all. As much as we’d like to have every possible thing on hand in quantities exactly matching the demand it just can’t work that way. We order a tremendous amount as do many other stores. We are allocated certain amounts of things and ultimately we get a lot because we put in the leg work. That said, we get less than we order and in some cases we miss out on items completely (trust us, it’s not purposeful by any stretch). We want everyone to be happy in the end so be excellent to each other. And if you have a request for something please let us know next week with an email or phone call and we can check on its availability.

There are a number of releases that have been delayed to a June 22nd release date. We’ll have a number of those as well – in June of course. If you don’t see what you’re looking for on our list today it may be one of those (including the Viktor Vaughn LP which a few folks have asked about).

Thanks to our friends at Forest Passage Printing and PK Would Dye For You we have a new shirt that will be available tomorrow. A white pocket T with a simple safety cone logo design and a tie-dye option! Note from PK about caring for your shirt: wash cold, separate, tumble dry low or hang dry to keep it nice and bright!

 

These will only be available in store for the time being! Quite the variety on these shirts – no 2 are alike!

Below is a list of what we will have available.
Record Store Day titles are limited to 1 per title per person (buy as many titles as you’d like, just 1 each). Continue reading Record Store Day Update 2022 (23rd of April)

RSR PC 053 Jeff of FiFac

Jeff joins us on the podcast this month to talk primarily about his project, FiFac. Electronic music production with a wide genre base beyond bass and improvisation. We talk about the FiFac internet presence (and the odd Twitter relationship / rivalry with CT Verses! It’s almost entirely positive – spoiler!). The release show on April 8th at Never Ending Books vol. 2 in New Haven is discussed (info can be found on Jeff’s Instagram page here).  Bands named after other musicians and celebrities? Singing the praises of Willimantic Records and going there for shows during this pandemic. Ok ok ok, I’m just naming random topics. Listen to the podcast and hear it all. We stay on topic, mostly.

Isik Kural “In February” RVNG INTL.

New record on @rvngintl tomorrow (3/24/2022) from @isikkural – we have black and pink variants! We also have Phil here from RVNG INTL doing a bit of a guest spot. He’s picked some items from our Discogs shop and written a bit about them.  And then we picked out a few things we liked from the very solid RVNGIntl catalog that we have in stock and appreciate right back!
“Isik Kural is a singer, songwriter, composer, and sound designer residing in Glasgow, UK by way of Istanbul, Turkey. Isik’s new album in february, out now via RVNG Intl., spins field recordings into morning melodies with delicate and concise production. I’ve assembled a few records from Redscroll’s discogs to paint a picture around Isik Kural’s music – all are great buys from a great record shop, and make a fine soundtrack for a cup of tea at morning or midnight.”

RSR PC 052 Deathwalker of Nihil Invocation

Deathwalker of Nihil Invocation and Vengeance Sorcery joins us this month on the Podcast. We talk about black metal and more black metal and what we’re listening to and how Deathwalker records and what led him to this path and how the backwoods of Connecticut are just as isolated as could be.  And more of course – not least of which is the signing of the 2 mentioned bands to Nuclear War Now!

The Redscroll Podcast is a monthly show (new episodes on the first of the month) that works as a companion to what we do at Redscroll Records in Wallingford, CT USA. We are a record store that has a heavy emphasis on the left of center / underground music of the world. Whether it be underappreciated or just has a niche audience, marginalized or just off the radar it’s all of interest to us. With the show we’ll generally have a localized focus. We’ll discuss what is in our personal rotation at the moment. We’ll talk to guests who have to do with all of the above. And we’ll talk about specific dealings with the store. If you have input you’re welcome to contact us through email (redscroll@gmail.com). Oh, and please do subscribe! New episodes on the first of every month! (Subscribe on Android)(Subscribe elsewhere just by searching for us please!)
