Limited Edition Vinyl Recordings & Handmade Musical Artifacts from Tucson, AZ
Oblivians/Reigning Sound, Spaceface, Casey Golden, more archives, Holiday Valu-Paks, More Nau Ltd Ed!

Halloween 2019 marked the 13th bday of PIAPTK. PIAPTK is finally officially that obnoxious teenager with it's hands in my pocket that it always acted like it was. So, if you haven't gotten us a Bar Mitzvah or Quincienera gift, its' probably because we are not Jewish, nor a hispanic young lady, but we do still accept gifts. The best of those gifts is to give yourself the gift of new PIAPTK stuff.

Also, Black Friday and Xmas are coming up. Before you get broke elsewhere, I'm just trying to get a little of that holiday cash burning a hole in yr pocket... so here it goes....

Casey Golden - II Lp

Casey Golden was one of my favorite Tucson songwriters before he moved to LA. And now he is one of my favorite LA songwriters!

Recorded on a day off in Cologne, Germany during a European tour in 2018, Casey Golden’s II is a true snapshot into an artist's life during a period of transformation - one that showcases Golden’s most personal work to date. Backed up by his “dream” band, Connor Gallaher (Calexico), Andrew Collburg (Howe Gelb), and Grant Beyschau (The Myrrors), the album incorporates textures reminiscent of Alice Coltrane, fuzed out psych freakouts that nod to the Tropicalia movement, and an emphasis on harmony and melodic turnaround that could only be taught by such pop masterminds as Margo Guryan and Burt Bacharach, who weren't afraid of using big emotional language when writing about love. This isn't entirely a hark back to the past however, its Golden’s voice - an angelic whisper that pops straight out of the speakers and feels like a pillow where you can lay your head for the night. It’s an introverts venture into the real world of 2019.

Might even throw in some out of print archive copies.


Michael Nau - a few more Less Ready To Go Deluxe Edition 2xLP Released, along with some super limited Jellybean" vinyl editions! - These sold out in a couple days. I always undersell new preorder releases just in case there is an under-run from the pressing plant, the USPS damages some, etc. In this case, neither happened, AND my buddy at the pressing plant made about 20 copies of both LPs on random "jellybean" colors, just for giggles. I personally, prefer the classic, matching, white vinyl version, but if you like them colors, or just want the rarest variant, I guess this is it.
