Christian Weber in-store performance - Saturday, November 1



“Double bassist Christian Weber is fast becoming one of the most interesting players on the European electro-acoustic improv scene. Although he's a good free improvisor, he seems to prefer to work with predetermined structures, albeit ones that are either hidden or very discreet.”
~Brian Marley, The Wire (Jan. 2007)


Christian Weber is a superb bassist who performs and records across all musical genres. He is a passionate musician involved in a variety of projects in the areas of noise/electro-acoustic improvisation/free jazz.

Saturday, November 1st at 5:30pm
Treehouse Records
2557 Lyndale Ave S
Minneapolis

This is Christian’s only Minneapolis appearance on this U.S. tour!

New arrivals at Treehouse - 10/4-10/15

Months ago on this fledgling blog, we promised regular updates on new arrivals to our new LP and new CD sections. Well, it's been a crazy summer and this whole blog idea has been pushed to the backburner. Sorry about that! We will try to update more regularly. In addition, we would like to spotlight a couple particularly cool and/or limited items within each update. Let's give this a shot.

Bob Dylan Tell Tale Signs: The Bootleg Series Vol. 8 (Rare and Unreleased 1989-2006) (Columbia)

Alternate takes, unreleased songs, and soundtrack cuts from Mr. Dylan's more recent work. It is phenomenal. The double CD ($20.99) is a super value, but the sound on the 4 LP vinyl box set ($101.99) will blow your mind!




Andre Williams & The New Orleans Hellhounds Can You Deal With It?
(Bloodshot)

Raunchy R&B legend Andre Williams unveils his best album in years, backed by a band led by the incomparable Mr. Quintron. The vinyl version, limited to 1,000 copies, comes with a bonus 7" featuring Jack White on guitar and piano.



Dillinger Four Civil War
(Fat Wreck Chords)

Local icons D4 released their first new album in six years on Tuesday, and it's a keeper. We have it in stock on both vinyl and CD.






Various Artists
1970's Algerian Proto-Rai Underground
(Sublime Frequencies)

We'll link to the label's site for a more detailed description. Limited vinyl-only pressing of 1,500 copies. Sublime Frequencies vinyl never lasts for long, so don't snooze!

Pavement "Brighten the Corners" Deluxe Edition - Buy Early, Get Now!



Treehouse is one of the stores participating in Matador's "Buy Early, Get Now" promotion for the upcoming Pavement Brighten the Corners: Nicene Creedence Edition deluxe 2 CD set (along the lines of the expanded reissues of Slanted and Enchanted, Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain, and Wowee Zowee from previous years.

This time, they're including an exclusive live Pavement vinyl LP for pre-orders only. According to Matador it goes like this...

Starting now, you come in here and pre-order the deal (which is $25.99 here... more than previous ones, but previous ones didn't have the limited LP). We forward your e-mail address to Matador, and they'll send you a code to stream the record now. They'll also e-mail you codes for two exclusive bonus tracks that will become available over the next couple weeks.

On November 18, when the thing is released, you come back here and pick up your double CD, live LP, and some kind of fancy-ass Pavement poster.

Click here for more details.
