  1. Wow! Never thought I'd see the day. This was my white whale for almost two years before I finally found an OP. It's a must-have album, for sure.
  2. Haha am I missing something? It's not the most technical song but it keeps building and building, kinda like the ones you were describing. Another one that just now came to mind is Saxon Shore - "Isolated By the Secrets..."
  3. Post-rock-wise, probably Set and Setting - Spiraling Uncertainties
  4. Hey friends. I had this in my possession a while back but I sold it and now I'm trying to get it back. Looking for anything 6th press (beige) or earlier. Please don't reply to this with an Amazon link or other such webpages because I've been there and I'd rather help out somebody on here.
  5. I'm very happy that this is getting repressed, giving this album more exposure. My OP is one of my prized possessions and this is one of my favorite albums of all time so I may be a little bit biased, but I hope everyone that's been searching for this will be able to get a copy now.
  6. PO: Choke Up - Stormy Blue

    Love seeing this news. Great band and I love that cover art. Definitely picking this up.
  7. Haven't had time to listen to it in full but I really liked the pieces of it I've heard so far. There's been a lot of quality under-the-radar albums released this year while all the big guns seem to be hibernating, which has created an interesting dynamic. I agree with you that 2018 is shaping up to be madness.
  8. Going to be very interesting to see how ES works with the release, given that one of the tracks is over an hour long. From what I've heard, that track is basically the rest of the album uncut with some additional interludes? All I know is that I couldn't get through the first two songs when I first tried to listen to this. Not my thing at all; very boring. I'm sure I'll try again, though, now that there's the incentive of pretty vinyl to motivate me... New Silent Whale can't come soon enough, on the other hand.
  9. Wow I don't check here for one day and I miss this... Definitely my favorite of theirs. Hopefully the aftermarket won't be too bad.
  10. Got my black in from Halo of Flies yesterday, without any shipping notification or anything. Haven't had a chance to spin it yet, but it was pretty dusty/gritty for some reason. I'll report on sound when I can.
  11. I don't know what it is about this album, but I came back to it about a month ago and it's really clicking with me right now for some reason. I guess all the substandard post-rock that's coming out nowadays makes this stand out in starker relief? Whatever it is, it's working for me. I heard also that we should expect new material from these guys by summer's end, so that's something, at least!
  12. For what it's worth, Gumbo, I appreciated the I/O notice. I remember when they released the first single off that album a while ago and I loved it but I totally forgot all about it until just now. So it was a nice little surprise for me. I wasn't a huge fan of Saudade but I think I'll enjoy this new one.
  13. @drds89 @mrewest @Dave Grohl @pemulis @wisdom81 @The Butcha @abovetheearth Tagging to gauge interest.
  14. Put me down for a copy of Refractions, Gumbo. We'll see if we can draw interest.
