Robotic Empire Mega Rad Distro Update and Nirvana Tribute song premiers!




Just before we close out the month of March, we're squeezing this kickass distro update in for you! There's so many goodies it'll be hard not to talk about each and every one of them but here goes...

First up we'll mention 2 side businesses run by label manager Lindsay that I'm sure a lot of you guys have noticed flyers and stickers for in your orders. Wortcunner Records was started in 2015 so that the amazing ambient albums by Brooklyn band 1 Mile North, could be released on vinyl for the very first time. We've got both those 180 gram colored vinyl records in the shop now so give a listen and pick up those deluxe offerings. Zeep Piercing Aftercare is yet another side project and since we know some of you folks have piercings and gauged ears, well these balms might be just the thing you need to enhance your piercing experience and they are great on tattoos too. All hand harvested ingredients and on horseback to boot!

Alright, after that shameless self promotion the Chelsea Wolfe catalog we carry has increased immensely. Love, love, love us some Chelsea Wolfe so we're stoked to have these available for you to purchase if you don't own them already. The new Body 2x12" arrived yesterday and we've got copies on pink colored vinyl. Picked up some great vinyl from Willowtip Records out in Pennsylvania, one of which is the Crowpath - Red on Chrome which comes on heavy 200 gram vinyl! Some out of the ordinary items for us to carry would be the Makaya McCraven album that just recently came out on International Anthem. Gorgeous packaging and some highly enjoyable jazzy tunes. Please give the bandcamp sound samples a listen. Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings is a personal favorite over here so we're starting off with the Dap-Dippin album and hope to pick up a few more albums in April. This woman has got some voice on her! If you enjoy The Alabama Shakes, give Sharon Jones a try. Many other goodies in that New Items list but we'll let you discover them yourselves in the Robotic Empire Online Store

The restock list is quite beefy itself with highlights being a heck of a lot of Deathwish Records restocks, Old Man Gloom and Wrekmeister Harmonies. Forcefield Records sent us more Windhand and Yajuta and that pricey (but well worth it) Year Of No Light import is back again. Glance through these lists below and we hope you find something interesting to put on the turntable.

Thanks again for all the Hollow Sunshine cassette orders, those should all be arriving to everyone by now and we know you'll enjoy that one. There's an alternate color version of the patch that was included in that tape set, it's on tan cloth and sold separate in case folks are interested in dressing up a jacket or a bag for this spring/summer etc. We just placed that up for sale on the Robotic Empire Online Store so head over and give it a look.




In Record Store Day news, we've got some great premieres going on for the upcoming, third! Nirvana tribute LP, “Doused In Mud, Soaked In Bleach”. English rock band Basement unveil their tribute to Nirvana‘s “Bleach”-era classic, ‘School’ via The AV Club:

Then we've got Circa Survive premiering their cover of ‘Love Buzz’, originally written/performed by Shocking Blue but made infamous by Nirvana. Alternative Press is streaming the song now along with a brief Q&A with the band:
