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.”

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.”
