  1. Record Store Day 2018

    One thousand thank yous.
  2. Vaporwave Vinyl Releases & Info

    Got a signed one of these a couple of months back. Not cheap though.
  3. The SYNTHWAVE Thread

    Xander Harris was hit by a car while riding his bike a few weeks ago and, while he will thankfully be okay in the long run, he has been off work since with some mounting medical/PT bills. I guess what I'm saying is if you're on the fence, hop off it and pick up a good record by a good dude who needs a good turn right now.
  4. Official Newbury Comics Reissue Thread

    I've never even heard a note of Demarco's until a couple of days ago. This album is the business. Can't fathom how it happened.
  5. PO Now: GHOST - Prequelle

    I couldn't care less about all the trappings or how people interpret their aesthetic; it takes all sorts to make a World. I just don't think their music is enjoyable after the first LP. Well maybe a couple songs on the second LP, too. I accept that bands grow and change, but I'm not wrong because I'm disappointed by their output. I always check out their stuff because I hope it will be a return to Opus, but so far, it ain't. Glad folks enjoy them. Just different strokes, etc.
  6. That's more like it. These are great albums, but I'm not sure I want to spend $90+ to buy them. What the heck? No, man. Just...no.
  7. PO Now: GHOST - Prequelle

    This band sounded so promising on Opus Eponymous and now they...don't.
  8. PO SOON: Blank Banshee

    Goddammit. Who's doing the Vaperror?
  9. Vaporwave Vinyl Releases & Info

    I've read a few places that these LPs leave something to be desired, fidelity-wise. Anybody here have that experience?
  10. Waxwork Records Thread

    Vinyl Factory is calling IT "limited edition" for whatever that's worth. No mention of pressing numbers as per.
  11. Online Record Selling

    Bingo. In order to carve out a corner of the online marketplace, you need to either have a lot of money upfront and/or inventory flow OR find a niche market for yourself like experimedia, mount analog, two headed dog, etc. They aren't getting rich either, but they are, in large, able to compete with Bullmoose, Amazon, and the like by carrying very specific types of music. They have relationships with niche labels and distributors. Get shipping breaks by importing in relative bulk. That sort of thing. They hustle a lot, but it works and they have really loyal followings. The one thing none of those stores, or any others of a similar ilk, are attempting to do is sell Wilco, Bowie, and Taylor Swift. That just generally does not work. Unless you've got some white hot stampers on your hands.
