  1. PO (Soon): Damien Rice - O

    Fuck. I was looking forward to zero stress around this release. Now I'll have to deal with a boat load of flippers and dipshits without record players buying this too.
  2. Record Store Day 2018

    Giving the people what we truly want.
  3. Looks like the pre-orders are on their way! Mine just arrived at my work a few moments ago, what a pleasant surprise!

    And another! First press blue Through Being Cool for $49. This guy actually sold three, first one for $39, mine for $49 to account for shipping to Canada and then another for $49. I didn't believe it until I opened it up today and ta-da! Sealed Saves. Chuffed!
  5. Yeah, all Hayden social media has made it hard to miss so I'm surprised anyone who'd want this album could miss out. You shouldn't worry though, it took a while for the preorder to sell out, so I assume it shouldn't be too hard to order from the site on release day. Just make sure you visit the site early EST on the 9th.
  6. Up for early preorder mailing list subscribers now. Grabbed one despite floating on an East African island in the Indian Ocean right now. Good timing with the WiFi, so no need to worry about hooking me up Mr. Crosley.
  7. Thanks for the offer! If I'm on a plane or stuck without a signal somehow I'll happily buy it off you. I'll let you know either way. Winter Trip, to my knowledge isn't out anywhere. Even though I've been a big fan since early on I don't remember ever even hearing it. It's the one track I guess I'm most excited for.
  8. Totally. Despite having the original 10" all the 7"s I am INTO this. Little worried about the March 9th sale day though as I am flying home from a work trip to Ventura California that day and am likely to be without reliable service. Either way, stoked that Hayden is doing this.
  9. Looks like a 20th anniversary of Moving Careful is on its way with added bonus material. From Hardwood Records: Hardwood Records will release the second piece in its 20th Anniversary Vinyl Series with Hayden’s Moving Careful on March 9, 2018 on digital and limited edition vinyl formats. This vinyl is the first pressing since the original 10” and features the original EP from 1996 with added rare recordings from 7” singles released between 1994 and 1996. “After touring my debut, Everything I Long For, across Canada for the better part of two years from 1994-96, I celebrated its imminent International release by developing a strong dislike for the sound of my music. A major sticking point in my negotiations with Outpost Recordings (my US label at the time) was to have the ability to release singles and EPs on my own or through smaller labels. They agreed, and Moving Careful was born from late night obsessions on the third floor of a rented Victorian house in Toronto. Although much of my debut was recorded on a 4-track cassette, I was eager to get back to my Yamaha MT100 II, and very inspired by what Eric’s Trip and Lou Barlow were doing at the time.” Moving Careful was released on Hardwood/Sonic Unyon in late 1996. Side Two of this 20th Anniversary edition also includes home recordings from the time period, things that Hayden had tucked away and found homes on Canadian Indies like Lunamoth, Landspeed and Squirtgun. Side One: Pots and Pans Stride Middle of July Old Fashioned Way Half For Me Choking You are All I Have Side Two: A Fortune I’d Kept Hazy I Wake Up With Me Mild Winter Trip Carry On Mentality Wasting My Days Away
  10. I will give New Inheritors another listen this week but I remember the remarkable disappointment I felt when I first got a copy in 2010 and sat down to listen to it. I remember feeling so sad for the band that they had written, released, and recorded such an unremarkable album. There is also an important context for the first three albums for me though, I was living in Halifax in 2002/2003 and saw a few shows where there were 10-20 people there, attended the album release show for the first album, and saw them live at poorly attended shows and house parties in New Brunswick throughout the next two albums. So, for me it's really just a lack of personal connection to the music from 2010 on I guess. But, I should give the albums a chance, and I will. I have a few 13 hour flights coming up on Sunday - so I'll load up my phone with the jams. I still doubt I'll ever want them on large format physical media though. Anyway, I am 100% stoked to have been awake early enough to grab all three coloured presses today. Might end up selling my original Welcome, even.
  11. Not interested. Last three albums are better off not existing.
  12. I'm surprised at how little noise has been made about these reissues, but happy not to deal with a crashing site when trying to check out.
  13. Noticed that on their instagram story last night too, googled to see if I could find any info and looks like pink will be /100.
  14. Biked over and picked up mine from Dine Alone this afternoon, so far, so good. I didn't find a lot of love for the last album after a few months, and I feel that this one is objectively better than it - stronger songwriting; lyrics, structure, and melody. Half clear/half blue is pretty. Happy with this purchase.
  15. Edit, just saw a billboard article from 2003 announcing the immediate leave of DC from the Beck tour. Claimed financial reasons, but maybe it was the booing.
