PS Audio's Octave Records accounces the release of Hey Joe Opus/Red Meat by Otis Taylor. This is Otis Taylor’s 14th album, originally released as a CD (and vinyl) on his Trance Blues Festival label and now for the first time available in pure full high-def DSD direct from the master recording. Joined by former Allman Brother’s guitarist, Warren Haynes, String Cheese Incident’s Bill Nershi, singer-songwriter and guitarist Langhorne Slim, Rose Hill Drive guitarist Daniel Sproul, and jazz trumpeter and longtime collaborator Ron Miles, Otis has created a psychedelic suite of 10 continuous songs threaded with urging motifs, dynamic textures, and hypnotic passages interplaying with Otis’ signature lyrics and vocal style.
Recorded exclusively on the Sonoma DSD Multitrack recording system and remastered by Gus Skinas for this limited direct-to-master SACD release, this single-pressing includes an Austrian gold-pressed dual-layer SACD with both the original master DSD as well as a special high-definition CD layer, playable on any CD, SACD, or DVD player. Tracks 11-20 on the SACD layer are an exclusive vinyl needle drop to DSD from the original 45 RPM DMM (Direct Metal Master) release from in-akustik GmbH. Only 1,300 SACDs will be released for collectors.

Guests may place orders for pickup online or stop inside to place an order with us in person.

It's nice to see the cafe slowly opening back up again. Congrats to the entire Alpine Modern team for making it happen!
The vulnerable space of the daily beauty routine is woefully designed. Top-down bathroom lighting is an enemy of confidence, casting shadows and falsifying features to present us with the least flattering image of ourselves. But it doesn't have to be that way. Aylo aims to solve this problem with the word's first smart beauty ring light. We invested in Aylo two years ago and have eagerly anticipated the launch day of Aylo since then.
The company is making 200 lights as part of its first production batch, which will ship in February 2021.

Alpine Modern began as a boutique museum design store named LON Little Shop. We then produced a quarterly printed magazine about moutain architecture with Scandinavian and Japanese aesthetics. The magazine was published under the title, Alpine Modern. Not long after, we dropped the name LON and rebranded the design shop as Alpine Modern. Following in the footsteps of the London-based brand, Monocle, we opened the Alpine Modern Cafe at 9th and College in Boulder. While all three business arms experienced popularity, it was apparent that we were illequiped to opearte three disperate businesses models. So we slowly depreprecated the shop and magazine businesses and focused on the cafes. The Alpine Modern brand has evolved over the years but has always stood for the simplicity and elegance of modern living.
