Store Update: Des Ark, This Will Destroy You, The Dismemberment Plan, Cool "Disco" Dan


Des ArkLive on WXDU Vol. 3

There are two types of Des Ark shows: The loud ones, where Aimee Argote brings a backing band and a car full of amps, and the quiet ones, where she dials back the volume to an intimate, living-room appropriate level. Live at WXDU Vol. 3 is one of the latter. This record – originally released on LP by Paramnesia and now reissued by Lovitt -- includes nine songs recorded live on WXDU by Ross Grady in 2010. It’s just Aimee, her voice, and an acoustic guitar, with a few guest riffs from Pygmy Lush’s Johnny Ward. The vinyl is coke bottle clear and the cover art features a two-color screen-print.
