CD Safari: St. Valentine’s Day Bouquet!, in detail:

Rondelles Shined Nickels & Loose Change CD [KLp127]

This collection of Rondelles hott punk rockin’ popover favorites has got it’s share of love songs (“T.V. Zombie”, “Safety in Numbers”, “He’s Got Heart”!!!) but really it’s the feel good freedom rock from the generation beyond. The best listening to accompany St. Valentine’s Day shenanigans - play this while roller skating with your heart’s desire and s/he’s sure to be yours!

Mirah and Spetratone International Share this Place: Stories and Observations CD [KLP181]

What could be more touching than “Love Song of the Fly” from the collaboration between Mirah and Spectratone International, Share this Place: Stories and Observations [KLP181]? A suite of 12 pieces, each focusing on the life and times of a different insect. “Love Song of the Fly” depicts the plight of a fly who is searching for love and understanding. We defy you not to shed a tear when you hear this humble plea.

The Gossip Red Hott CD [IPU096]

Four songs about the Red Hott lifestyle straight from ’90s Olympia, which is to say St. Valentine’s Day Wonderland! Recorded at Dub Narcotic Studio with Calvin Johnson.

Lois Bet the Sky CD [KLP036]

The best songwriter at K for songs of the heart, hands down. This Lois album includes her classics “Shy Town”, “Charles Atlas”, “Transatlantic Telephone Call” and of course, “February 15”! Dang.

Calvin Johnson What Was Me CD [KLP117]

Love songs direct from Hopelessly Romantic Central: “Love will Come Back Again”, “Can We kiss?”, “Lies Goodbye” and Calvin's duet with Mirah, “Ode to St. Valentine”, worth the price of this CD Safari all by itself.

Marine Research Parallel Horizontal CD [KLP104]

No one writes about love, it’s hazards and eventual rewards better than Ms. Amelia Fletcher. If you followed her adventures through Talulah Gosh and Heavenly, you’ll want to check in with her Marine Research incarnation. Hearts aflutter. Included are two songs from the Marine Research BBC session recorded for John Peel.  

Glo-Worm Glimmer CD [KLP054]

Falling in love in Paris, France -what could be more romantic? The soothing vocal sounds of Ms. Pam Berry (Black Tambourine, Belmondo) explores and travels through all the true loves and lovers, the world over. Wistful listening, year round.

The Crabs Sand and Sea CD [KLP095]

Classic Crabs, and that means love in the summertime, down at the lake, tumbling away, end of the world, I surrender!

Jason Traeger My Religion Is Love CD [KLP098]


The name of this album says it all: My Religion Is Love, and you can bet that theme runs all through this Olympia song-singer’s K debut album. “Word of Mouth”, the anthemic “love Faeries” and the inspirational “Love, Love and Love”. Super-charged love hymns from deep in the heart.

Gene Defcon Come Party with Me 2000 CD [KLP113]

Talkin’ love here: sweet, forbidden, unrequited, rollin’ and tumblin’ - just look at that face! Gene Defcon has definitely launched 1000 voyages of the Love Boat. Over 20 songs, and then you’ll be begging for more (they always do).

In honor of St. Valentine’s Daythe K Mail Order Dept. has gathered together ten top-flight K albums forming a CD Safari that celebrates love in all its guises. Receive all ten CDs for $15.00; that’s a sweet bouquet straight from the heart.

Joel’s Wall, pt. 2 - “Cats & Bands”
We’ve got Make-Up, Joey Casio, Melanie from Tender Forever, Jeremy Jay, Old Time Religion (not that one), and Elliott Smith (who makes his only K appearance on Lois’ Infinity Plus), plus a bunch of cats.

I can’t speak for everyone around here (since everyone else is on tour!), but a bunch of us at K like Jarvis Cocker.  So can you imagine how exciting it was for us to get an email from Lois telling us that he played Mount Eerie and our pals, Earth, on his weekly radio show last Sunday?  SO EXCITING!  You can listen to it here while it’s up for the next couple of days, and if you’re lucky enough to be in Europe, you have the opportunity to see both bands before they wrap up their European tour together with Ô Paon on the 6th!

Dub Narcotic Sound System (feat. Lois) - Ship to Shore (Boot Party Mix)

What a dream - nobody brings the ruckus like Dub Narcotic Sound System, and no one can sing it like Lois. When you put the two together… you get “Ship to Shore”, one catchy-ass, hearty-heart jam.

This magic moment is from 1996 - and by golly, we’re still swooning for this song fifteen years later. Go listen and you’ll know what we’re talking about.
