Bought For A Song: Still More Deals Under Tower Records’ Deathbed

Dec 14th, 2006 // Comment

Tower Records is closing down, and readers are sending in their favorite deals–along with price info and MP3s–to tips@idolator.com. Today’s tipster brings word of deals that should thrill the hearts of indie-loving bloggers who aren’t on any PR companies’ mailing lists:

After reading your advice I made trip to the Tower at Lincoln Center and lo-and-behold, there are still some pretty excellent bargains to be had. I picked up several 2006 releases I hadn’t gotten around to and filled in a couple of back catalog holes.
Full list -
Matthew Friedberger – Winter Women / Holy Ghost Language School
Destroyer – Destroyer’s Rubies
Grandaddy – Just Like the Fambly Cat
Drive-By Truckers – A Blessing and a Curse
Beachwood Sparks – Once We Were Trees
The Black Lips – We Did Not Know the Forest Spirit Made the Flowers Grow
International Noise Conspiracy – Survival Sickness
Nothing too obscure, but I got the whole lot for 49 bucks and change – about half what it would have cost at amazon – all in all, a pretty awesome deal.

Destroyer – Watercolours Into The Ocean [MP3, link expired]
