  1. They want to, but can't. I asked them about this last time I saw them and Zach, and he said the owner of Ace Fu records (label their first 3 albums were on) is a total asshole who wants to squeeze every penny out of anything he reissues (kind of ironic considering the $40 price tag on this one), and he'll wait until RSD to make sure they all get bought. So I wouldn't get your hopes up.
  2. Nice. I'm getting close... just need a few singles and the clear BSL. I paid the damn $40 for it on tour because these guys are one of my all-time favorite bands and are really nice, genuine people who I am happy to support. I connect so much with their music that they can have my extra $10-15 for an overpriced LP. And hey if that extra $ means maybe they'll put out one more album before retiring, I won't miss it for a second.
  3. WTB: Ipod for my kid

    I have a 4th gen iPod touch she can have for free, maybe just pay shipping if you don't mind. Has a front and back camera, 8GB of storage, WiFi. Screen is in great condition, the back has some marks. Here's some pics: https://imgur.com/a/WwbMM
  4. FS: Brand New Your Favorite Weapon TP

    Hmm. Might make a nice coffee table bowl. $20.
  5. My bad, I though it had just went up for preoder. Will likely pick one up locally this week!
  6. https://store.remhq.com The $10 shipping is a bit steep for my likes... hoping this will be widely available in stores like the other reissues? Also note that "deluxe" applies to the other bundles, the vinyl reissue is the standard album.
  7. Anyone who has this in their hands will need to explain the fairy wizard magic they used to get a pre-order manufactured and shipped to them in 24 hours.
  8. The Concert Thread

    Saw LCD Soundsystem tonight, fantastic show as always. Except for the extremely drunk 30-somethings next to me, the woman screaming about how it's her boyfriend's birthday repeatedly and shoving people around to get where she wanted to be then calling them a c u next tuesday... and the guy reminding me multiple times that that's James fucking Murphy on stage, because he wanted to make sure I appreciate it. Thanks man.

    If anyone has an extra indie they wanna sell me hit me up.
  10. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    I want them to reserve the copy they said they’d have for me as a replacement, rather than sell it to someone else. It’s bad business. You find me a copy for the $28 I originally paid and I will.
  11. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    I sent my blue/red variant back to Bullmoose for a replacement since the jacket and vinyl were damaged. They specifically said I’d get a replacement. It gets back to them today and they tell me they’re out of them and have refunded me. Am I wrong to think that at the time of my original email to them, one should have been set aside for my replacement? This is BS and in my opinion they owe me a replacement.
  12. PO NOW: Bon Iver - Emma, Forever Ago (ltd reissue)

    I have the regular pressing and never had any issues with it. Sure, probably not the greatest sounding record I own, but definitely no defects or artifacts. If this reissue has issues I doubt you'll have any trouble selling it to someone else.
  13. PO NOW: Bon Iver - Emma, Forever Ago (ltd reissue)

    People asking what's the point of this, it's a 10 year anniversary addition: In my book that's plenty different enough to warrant a reissue. But also I'm a tremendous fan of this band, JV himself, and all his previous bands and side projects. I lived in Eau Claire for a few years and grew to really appreciate his music and what he does for his community. He's also probably the most humble person I've ever met. I'll be driving 6ish hours for the Milwaukee show too. Looking forward to all of this.
  14. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    Same here. Thought it was damaged from a piece of dirt in there while shipping, but guess not. What's weird is if you look closely it looks like a scribble like it was scratched on purpose. I don't know how this wasn't caught by quality control.
  15. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    It just definitely didn't have the breathing room you'd expect on a 2xLP with 3 songs per side.
  16. He made an Instagram for his new album and posted today with caption "tomorrow" https://www.instagram.com/ogilala/
  17. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    Anyone else's indie copy have a significant repetitive click at the end of Out Of Mana? I looked closely and there's a tiny scribble-scratch right on that outro part with just vocal & guitar. Wondering if pressing defect or a piece of garble got inside the sleeve and did some damage during shipping. Also, the vinyl, sound-wise, definitely does not hold up to the dynamics and clarity of the digital album. I know vinyl is inherently limited in these respects, but it's noticeably muddier, much more than pressings of their other albums compared to digital. I even did a vinyl rip (I have a good system for it) and while I usually prefer my rips over the digital tracks, the MP3 V0 album that came with the pre-order sounds much better. Hoping for better mastering on the band exclusive when that arrives.

    I gotta say the poster that came with it is pretty cool. Nice to see a picture of them smiling haha.
  19. PO: Billy Corgan - OGILALA

    Compare it to Oceania/Monuments with the 10x layered vocal choruses and guitar riffs, lavish synths, stacked yet largely forgettable melodies IMO. I much prefer this singer-songwriter style. But that's just me, one guy whose opinion means nothing
  20. The Autograph Thread

    I already explained the situation, muchacho.
  21. The Autograph Thread

    I went through and made an album of my signed vinyl, curious to see what you folks have stashed away as well. http://imgur.com/a/NFcua
  22. The Autograph Thread

    Nah that's what I love about them, they're really personal with fans and are thankful I buy the albums. Plus they played 2 nights so I brought half each time. They also realize we don't have many chances to see them so I think it's ok. The bassist even hung around and chatted with me for a while after, didn't seem annoyed at all. But yeah any typical show I bring 2 albums max.
  23. The Autograph Thread

    I enjoyed the rare chance to see my favorite band, Pinback, last week in Chicago. Left with quite a few goodies
  24. PO: Billy Corgan - OGILALA

    Got the pink from Bullmoose on Friday. Sounds awesome. Actually really enjoying the album. Billy can still write songs, apparently he just needs to keep it simple and focus on lyrics rather than over producing everything.
  25. PO: Single Mothers - Our Pleasure

    They're pressed with quality. I told Drew, take all my money from me.
