Sweaters and Pearls

Jason over at the awesome 7inches blog has been busy with his Sweaters & Pearls label. Here's some cool vinyl he has for sale:

"You Are Not Going To Heaven" is a 2011 six song e.p. from Brooklyn band Soccer Mom, on really beautiful white vinyl, courtesy Sweaters and Pearls and 100m Records. Good Sonic Youth-esque rock, $13 bucks and shipping. I'm serious about that white vinyl, it is exquisite looking.

Reminds me a little of The Trouble with Sweeney cover of Listen To What the Man Says:

These 45s are all $5 and shipping from Sweaters and Pearls:

Fat History Month is from the Boston area. Sweaters and Pearls is running out of this 7", recorded in 2009. The last thirty copies are hand-painted. Sweet mustard yellow vinyl. Here's my fave of the four tracks:

Fat History Month: "Heart Takes A Beating"

Sweaters and Pearls pressed 300 red vinyl copies of R. Stevie Moore's "I Miss July" b/w "Traded My Heart For Your Parts." "I Miss July" was originally recorded in 1978, the b-side was recorded in 1994. I've never heard of R. Stevie Moore before - he's been recording for over 40 years. I'll say it again: I love this hobby. This is my favorite of this post's set.

Harpoon Forever is New Jersey's WFMU DJ Alex Goldstein. Sweaters and Pearls sez to think 90s indie rock, Silver Jews, and The Strapping Fieldhands. Man, I'd never heard of The Strapping Field Hands. Again, I love this hobby. This is all killer stuff.
