  1. Demon Days is a straight-up classic that deeply impacted the youth of that era. It sounded unlike anything my friends and I had heard and quickly turned into THE album of that pivotal summer seperating my last year of high school and the beginning of college. It's singles were plastered across Denver's FM in the moment just before radio's dying days. It introduced countless suburban youth to underground hip-hop and was (along with the first Gorillaz album) one of the first albums to blend rock, rap and electronica seemlessly. (Nearly every white hip-hop junkie I've been friends with over the years lists either Demon Days or the self-titled album as a touchstone that served to springboard their love of the genre.) Oddly, I was a part of this exact conversation months ago on the VMP forums and it continues to surprise me how many people underestimate just how iconic this album is. Perhaps its a generational thing...
  2. That's really odd as I just renewed my subscription about an hour ago. Chose the 3 month since it now has unlimited swaps, but the one month was there. Maybe they are getting flooded with 1 month sign-ups...
  3. I had to drop one after turning down VMP's offer of a $25 store credit to renew my subscription a couple of days ago... only to see this news on the front page of Pitchfork. It's definitely still there. But they've raised the pricing a bit... which is why they were running the promo I mentioned in my post above.
  4. This thread is gonna become a long list of referral codes: http://fbuy.me/fgpgM
  5. So the fact that these are selling out would indicate that they are, indeed, limited?
  6. Are they doing a normal pressing of the Fragile (and Broken) that I can wait on? Sorry for not doing the work but I am backpacking my way through Cambodia atm and only get short spurts of wifi... and obviously most of my spare finacnes are going towards traveling instead if records right now.
  7. Not all of us can rationalize spending 100+ on a fucking record buddy.
  8. God dammit. I need Manson on vinyl.
  9. Is the Danny Brown still available? If so...Finances are tight atm as saving for an upcoming wedding in Thailand so I temporarily canceled my VMP account last month.However, AE is one of my favorite albums of the year and I have sealed copies of the new Wilco (pink) or Ride: Best of (BF Red) that I'd be willing to trade. You might even be able to talk be out of the Orange High Fidelity soundtrack or Flume's marbled purple variant of Skin. For the record, I'd trade any of these for a new copy of White Stripes: Elephant too.

  12. Dying to know how these sound as well. My current copy of Welcome is one of the worst sounding records I own.
  13. I accidentally wound up with copies of both (long story) . The one with white swirl is far prettier. Wish there were seperate discog enteries for them as I'm probably gonna sell the other one off so I can replace my copy of Elephant that recently got scratched to shit. For the record, its impossible to distinguish between the two via the packaging but the matrix numbers are different. Both seem to be Mom & Pop pressings (aka from the US). Oh, and both sound phenominal. I'll post pictures momentarily.
  14. Hello guys, My Debut Carbon turntable came with a 3 ft. input/output audio cable that had a ground wire built into it. I recently moved and that cable in now too short for the setup. It's obviously pretty easy to find a replacement red/white aux cable in 6 or 10 ft sizes but I'm really struggling to find one that includes a ground cable. I called Amoeba to ask about whether they sold any and was told it's really rare to find a ground cable over 3 ft. Does anybody know if this is correct and/or a good place to go in the Los Angeles area if I want to buy a new one? I'm pretty broke at the moment so I'd like to avoid going over $30 but also feel that the one cable I'm seeing on Amazon is probably too cheap and of questionable sound quality. Thoughts? https://www.amazon.com/Hosa-CRA-202DJ-Right-Angle-Ground-Interconnect/dp/B000PO1H80/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1475554057&sr=8-1&keywords=ground+cable+for+turntable
