  1. Yo, wide releases in addition to a limited, timed variant are super cool. You hear that Frank Ocean?
  2. Up on Matador now: Julien Baker - Turn Out the Lights Out on 10/27 Ultra clear w/ pink and purple splatter (Matador exclusive) - 500 copies Clear w/ blue splatter (6131 exclusive) - 300 copies Clear (Indie exclusive) Black
  3. Soooooo is that the closest we're going to get to having Schindler's List on vinyl?
  4. PO-Knuckle Puck-Shapeshifter (10-13-17)

    Still can't push myself to preorder. I'll wait to hear the whole thing. I haven't felt strongly about them since The Weight That You Buried. I've only been crazy about a few songs off of WISS and their first LP. Sorry. Thanks though.
  5. PO-Knuckle Puck-Shapeshifter (10-13-17)

    I don't quite feel ready to commit to this album yet, but I really dig the energy on both of the singles. If I do purchase, I'll probably go with that UO variant cause yes, that cover is better. Thanks for the heads up.
  6. PO Now: King Krule - The OOZ

    19 songs! Hot damn! 6 Feet Beneath the Moon is excellent, and that new song is tight! I knew this was on the horizon but didn't know when. Definitely one of my most anticipated for the remainder of the year.
  7. PO: The National - Sleep Well Beast

    Door hanger too limited.
  8. Video Game OSTs v2.0

    Yeah same happened to me. But we're good!
  9. Video Game OSTs v2.0

    Inching through checkout for Mother 2...
  10. Can anyone who has Milan's reissue of "Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence" comment on the sound quality?
  11. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    The laugh at the end of No Control continues to creep me the fuck out. So unsettling.
  12. Why would you release the closing track of your album? Especially Circa of all bands. Is the album listening experience not sacred anymore?
  13. Got my Predator this morning. Not super impressed with the quality of the images on the back and gatefold. I'll listen later to comment on the sound quality.
  14. What's up with the lack of original art on releases lately?
  15. Song started weird with that choir/harmony/whatever-type-thing, but once that chorus kicked in, I smiled so big. Love it.

    Basically what that Limited to One store is in NYC. Been advertised all over the place here. Figured it would be slightly higher prices but once I saw a copy of Nothing's Poshlost sealed for $40-something, Brand New records for $200-$400, and sealed VMP records for significantly higher prices, I noped the hell out of there (wish I had better examples off the top of my head). The sealed stuff pissed me off because it made their intentions pretty clear. You can find most of the stuff on Discogs for cheaper, but maybe it's just that I don't cave into instant gratification like others. You'll probably find the Australian variant of this on their shelves for $90 the day they get it in. Almost sold stuff to the guy too, but now I'm glad we couldn't reach an agreement. Or maybe it's just me cause most people seem to think the prices are pretty fair. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Perhaps the nicest part of this release is that there is a clear balance between Jesse's and Vin's writing. I'm willing to bet that most of the "Deja sounding" songs were Jesse's, while the darker songs and the interludes are most likely Vin's brainchildren. Meanwhile, songs like Same Logic/Teeth and 137 seem to be a nice mix of both of their styles.
  18. Well I guess I'm eating my words. But this is one of the few times that I'm fine with being wrong. Reactivated my membership. Honestly, even more excited about the cover. It's the reason I put down the RSD reissue a few years back. And black would have been nice, but the variants are pretty.

    And I finally listened! I do wish it had more aggression (I am one of the ones that loves Daisy), but it is still excellent all around. Love Waste and 137 especially.
  20. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    I still haven't listened to this yet. It's been painful to hold off, Been waiting on the ability to get an hour alone but my weekend was pretty busy. Looking forward to that time tomorrow. Happy to see that people are so pleased with it though.
  21. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    There are two possible outcomes to this: lots of order cancellations or it's going to be about as rare as OKNOTOK. If this is really THAT limited, this link has had it available for much too long.

    We all have a little Kess in us. EDIT: Pretty sure he was being sarcastic, guys.
  23. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    I'm also guessing there were only 500 up on Tuesday. 5000 wouldn't have sold so fast. Not possible with all the issues. If you ordered the $45 sketchy version you're getting a CD.
