  1. A Place To Bury Strangers- Pinned

    Green Hell (GER) has listed the pink double LP with the bonus tracks but without all that yadda yadda for 22€.
  2. Shoegaze/Dream Pop Thread

    talk about German shoegaze. Here's another great band which has just released their sophomore LP, "Ringthing". While grounded in "rock" guitar work in general, they lean heavily towards synth- and dream pop oftentimes, so this should also appeal to fans of bands like The Pains of Being Pure At Heart or also the last Death of Lovers record. You should definitely check it out, the opener alone should be worth it! I don't know how to embed the bandcamp player, so just take this hyperlink: JAGUWAR bandcamp
  3. Shoegaze/Dream Pop Thread

    Re: Swirlpool Yes, indeed an awesome single and really nice guys, too! They are from Regensburg, Germany, and their debut EP is due out this spring. I've already listened to it and it's a real banger, I'll definitely post here once it is released. Some of the best music out of Germany I've come across in recent years. Also stoked that my band is going to do a little touring with these guys over here in the summer :-)
  4. just found this up in the RFC store: scheduled release date is 10/20/17 Pressing Information: 500 Black (Luxury Exclusive) 500 Clear w/ Black Smoke with limited Spot Gloss Jacket 1000 Orange with White Splatter 1500 Oxblood/Pink Swirl http://www.runforcoverrecords.com/products/599059-makthaverskan-ill edit: first single "In My Dreams" can be streamed on RFC's facebook page and Spotify, probably other digital outlets as well.
  5. don't know if there's a regional difference, but I'm in India right now and it has been available for me on Spotify ever since the release date. Just checked again and it is definitely there.
  6. Shoegaze/Dream Pop Thread

    sorry if that didn't come across, but I love the sound. I've liked their sound early on (purchased the 10" together with the new record), but this new stuff is just a bit more distinct and individual.
  7. Shoegaze/Dream Pop Thread

    received the new Iris 12" via Backpack Records. The swirl variant is super neat. Highly recommended for any fan of old Whirr, but I want to say that Iris' sound has evolved far beyond that since the debut 10".
  8. very anxious to hear what they come up with next. It's been a while.
  9. PO NOW: Ducktails - Jersey Devil

    to give this some context for those unaware: https://www.spin.com/2017/10/matt-mondanile-aka-ducktails-departed-real-estate-amid-sexual-misconduct-allegations/ edit: also, judging from the past interview section reported in the article, the guy seems unbelievably self-absorbed in the first place. Ugh.
  10. no shipping confirmation yet, but I ordered from Relapse EU so that might be a different kind of thing anyway.
  11. PO Now: Strange Ranger - Daymoon

    Yes, I was also a bit surprised by the overall direction in comparison to their debut. Luckily the personal quirkyness is still there though, and after another few spins this has me even more interested. Will keep in rotation
  12. PO : Death Of Lovers - The Acrobat

    YES! can't afford to preorder, but the new single kicks ass and I'm amazed how these guys could write and record all of this in between tour schedules and the new Nothing LP that has recently been recorded as well. Very much looking forward to the release!
  13. Posting for the star. Will buy domestic if they are not limited, which seems to be the case so far.
  14. PO Now: Strange Ranger - Daymoon

    I'm getting some strong Alex G vibes from this. Only went through the whole thing once but it already has me hyped for tomorrow when I can put it on my phone. You should also check out the Audiotree session they did, it's terrific.
  15. really not that smart of a move to use the Holocaust Memorial (Berlin) as a backdrop for your music video - I'm sure a lot of people will feel offended by it and it actually made me think twice if I wanted to share the video with some friends. The music is cool however, will keep an eye out for when the whole record drops. Any plans for EU/Germany distribution?
  16. I've never bought from them before. But yes, usually German international shipping is rather reasonable, so that might be your best bet. I couldn't find anything on their homepage though.
  17. no clue, but that variant surely does sound rad!
  18. was able to score the /300 merge variant. 31€ ppd to Germany. Not too bad, and this is certainly an album that I would like to have a nice variant of. Really excited for this release!
  19. dude.. that /300 looks so good. Will try to get a copy, eager to see the "EU/UK" pre-order options and hoping it's not gonna make me cry.
  20. how does the yellow sound? Upon first listen I dug the album, but I've seen people shitting on the overall mix of this album (similar to the first LP) and now I'm wondering if spinning the LP will be just a big annoyance.
  21. so in for this! My favorite Death album and the one of these reissues I've been waiting for most eagerly for sure. Also, I have the black Roadrunner/Cargo 2007 repress that I obtained three years ago for about 15€ new, just realized now that Discogs says it sells for around 40€ on average - which makes no sense as the (apparently identical) Metal Blade repress is available for about half of that. So yeah, if you're still missing Symbolic that should be the way to go!
  22. PO NOW: Citizen - As You Please

    stripped-down version of "Jet". Absolutely incredible, this makes me look forward to the upcoming release even more.
  23. nope, 33rpm. Can only speak for EU standard black (couldn't pass it up for 18€), but it does indeed sound amazing. If you were wondering about 45rpm with regard to quality, I can assure you that this record sounds at least equally as good as most of the 45rpm records that I can remember.
  24. PO: Beach Fossils- Somersault(June 2)

    just a little heads up for anyone planning to attend any of the upcoming shows: these guys totally kill it live. One of the best shows I've seen this year. Also, with regard to the hobby™, take note that they have the white w/ red splatter variant with them for sale as well next to standard black. Make sure to ask the merch guy as I saw them hand out standard copies to people who didn't ask for the splatter in specific. They also threw in those goodie bags (not sure if only for purchasers of the splatter or also for standard). Glad I held off buying until this point - the live show convinced me to give the record another chance and that splatter is surely one of the coolest-looking in my collection.
  25. yeah, that would be totally like... the original release?
