SUFJAN STEVENS RETURNS TO HIS ROOTS WITH ‘CARRIE & LOWELL’

418456360691-500Sufjan Stevens’ new album Carrie & Lowell is now available at The Record Exchange on CD and vinyl!

Says Pitchfork, “This record is a return to the spare folk of Seven Swans, but with a decade’s worth of honing and exploration packed into it. It already feels like his most classic and pure effort.”

April 2nd, 2015

LOWER DENS’ ‘ESCAPE FROM EVIL’ NOW AVAILABLE AT RECORD EXCHANGE!

LD_468x60418456359788-500Lower Dens’ new album Escape from Evil is now available at The Record Exchange on CD and vinyl!

Says the Guardian of the band’s third album, “Hunter sounds like a hybrid of Annie Lennox and Beach House’s Victoria Legrand on a collection of songs that take a welcome detour away from Nootropics’s exploration of transhumanism and instead focus on simpler matters of the heart.”
