New Staff pick and Black Friday Update

With so much new and great music coming out it's hard to pick a record that stands out above the rest.  But we always like to single out an an album that always seems to on our speakers.  Recently everyone at Repo has been in love with the tunes from one of Philadelphia's own.

Far-Out Fangtooth - Borrowed Time
(Siltbreeze Records)

We can't stop loving the Philly scene because time and time again Philadelphia puts out top tier music and Far Out Fangtooth keeps that track record going.  This record is a great post-punk powerhouse.  At times reminding you of the more brooding Bauhaus tracks and harnessing the power of Wooden Shjips to get lost in the track.  No song better exemplifies this than the stunning "Beyond Your Bones".  Joseph Kusy's voice soars in the most haunting way as the band swells behind him with a washed out wall of sound that envelops your ears.  Philly has a great history when is comes to music and Borrowed Bones adds nicely to that legacy.

Black Friday 2013 is over but not forgotten!
We all just want to say thank you to everyone that came to Repo for the Black Friday releases.  Like always you were super cool and very easy going.  We say it a lot but it bears repeating, YOU GUYS RULE!  In case you missed any of the releases because you were busy fighting soccer moms at Target, have no fear, we've still got plenty of copies of cool records.

Holy crap! is that the last copy of Lee Scratch Perry and The Upsetter's "Super Ape", I think it is...
