When pop seems played out, this is the dawning of the age of Aquarius Records, featuring Armenian blues, Oakland ravers and rare Japanese releases since 1970. Recent staff favorites include Finnish heavy metal compilations, Thai pop's greatest hits, California's stoner-sound-wizards Vetiver and SF's own POW!, enthusiastically described as 'blown out synth punk.' Street cred alert: the Dead Kennedys met through the Aquarius bulletin board.
