NUM705 Dinosaur Jr.: Visitors 5×7″ box
From 1985 to 1990, Maura Jasper was the go-to artist for “ear-bleeding country” trio Dinosaur Jr. From “Repulsion” to their self-titled debut LP, from You’re Living All Over Me to “Freak Scene,” from Bug to “Just Like Heaven,” and on posters, videos, and t-shirts, the Dinosaur Jr. look was born of Jasper’s love for Norwegian expressionist Edvard Munch and English anarchist Gee Vaucher.
Collected inside are Dinosaur Jr.’s replicas of first four singles for the SST and Homestead labels, a bonus fifth 7” pairing “Show Me The Way” with a cover of the Byrds’ “Feel A Whole Lot Better,” a Jasper-penned essay on her creative process and friendship with J Mascis, and a book of unused work from the period.
Limited to 5000 copies. Available in finer retailers around the world on Record Store Day: April 19th 2014.

NBR-003 South Side Story Vol. 23 CD/LP
For the lowriders, the souleros, and for any armchair drag racer who still has a record player within reach, South Side Story pays tribute to the aftermarket sounds of soul music, inspired by the record industry’s metric trunkload of cruising compilations, legitimate and otherwise, that soundtracked an entire subculture. This getaway ride mixtape strips aesthetics from the timeless East Side Story series, and poaches music from Chicago soul groups (mostly, of course, from the historically soulful South Side). Tracks never before issued ride shotgun with songs known only from minuscule 45 pressings, with a few chromed-up classics to boot. Roll with a jacked-up masterpiece.
Limited to 1000 copies on CD and LP. Available in finer retailers around the world on Record Store Day: April 19th 2014.
We’ll also be popping up again in Chicago at Logan Square’s Comfort Station from 9am to 5pm, with an exclusive limited edition 45 from Ned Doheny:
But wait, there’s more! One week later we’ll be setting up a Numero store for an entire weekend in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood at the Human Gallery (110 Meserole Avenue).
