Some more needledrop!  This stack of vinyl is mostly new EDM, but there are also some really quirky post-punk/industrial reissues at play.  Music from the XPQ? Mysterious DJ contingent out of Berlin, Peder Mannerfelt, Bogdan Razynski, Celia Hollander, Squarepusher and more…

Yet another amazing stack of vinyl in the recent arrivals.  A pair of early releases from Recommended Records, the latest albums from Joy Orbison and Little Simz, a Hyperdub release by Klein, one of three dozen comps from R. Stevie Moore, and the new L’Rain record are included.

The pile of vinyl spilled over into a needle-drop show.  Take a journey through new and discovered records from La Femme, Vic Serf and the Villains, Flying Lotus, Moin, The Bug, Delia Derbyshire, Video Adventures and Debile Menthol as only A Box Of Toys can present it.
