Black Friday is upon us, and nothing makes us happier than the blackest black of a vinyl record! This year's Black Friday is extra special for us, as local label Light In The Attic Records will be opening a store in the KEXP Gathering Space, bringing the exclusive, limited-edition releases right to us.

I had never heard of the idiosyncratic Los Angeles guitar player/singer/songwriter Sylvia Juncosa before pulling this record off the KEXP shelf, but I'm glad to have made her musical acquaintance, however late I am to the party. And it seems my timing is pretty good, as just last year she release...
