    Thrift Store 7"
  1. Not normally a flipper but I bought an extra copy of the smoke variant last time they had them in stock hoping to sell it for a decent price... doh! That was a super fast restock. Can't blame CF though, this thing is a fast seller.
  2. You don't want to hear Northlane's (?) timely cover of Anthem for the Year 2000?
  3. Albums That Should Be Pressed on Vinyl

    Interesting info from someone who was around, thanks man. I've also heard that Brent Oberlin was kind of considered a jerk? If true, that probably didn't help their reputation in the scene. Did you ever check out his band Cosmonaut? I see on discogs that their album finally came out in 2015, but I haven't heard it.
  4. Albums That Should Be Pressed on Vinyl

    Glad you dig it, and that other people here like Thought Industry! They're one of those bands where I feel like... bad for them, that they never got the attention they deserve.
  5. Albums That Should Be Pressed on Vinyl

    The Thought Industry's Short Wave on a Cold Day (2001). Supremely underrated band from Kalamazoo, Michigan. They were on Metal Blade for almost their entire career, despite the fact that their last few albums were in no way metal. Metal Blade didnt know what to do with them. They started in the late 80s playing super technical, out there stuff, like a more metal Mr. Bungle. Dillinger Escape Plan always sounded like a less creative Thought Industry, to my ears. This album is closer to indie rock than metal. 75+ minutes, many songs that bleed unto each other, and stream-of-consciousness lyrics that demand to be printed on a big vinyl insert. The best album no one's ever heard of. Check out Kiss Judy Fly, Alien and Pure, and Burning Coal with Margaret.
  6. The thread formerly known as 'ty segall'

    Got mine today and it looks great. cannot confirm how the remastering sounds, will have to wait until tomorrow. And 13960 was low enough for the color version, if anyone's nervous about where the cut-off is.
  7. PO Now: (Thee) Oh Sees - Orc

    Good to know! I'll probably wait a day or two to follow up but I'm getting pretty antsy as well
  8. This is clearly a very delicately, painstakingly composed album.... But yeah, sometimes I just want them let loose. Overall a really good album though.
  9. The thread formerly known as 'ty segall'

    Anyone gotten Slaughterhouse yet, or shipping confirmation? I'm on pins and needles over here.
  10. The thread formerly known as 'ty segall'

    Please let this be a correct translation.
  11. PO: Ted Leo - The Hanged Man

    For me anyway, this is a rare back-loaded album. The last 4 tracks are easily my favorite and none of the other 10 really come close.
  12. PO Now: (Thee) Oh Sees - Orc

    Yep, same situation for me. I emailed Matt on Saturday and haven't gotten a response.... then I noticed that in the last newsletter, he said he was leaving for tour on the 9th and that any orders on or after 9/9 wouldn't go out until October. I definitely ordered mine on the 8th, but maybe he got pressed for time and didn't actually get them shipped? What day did you order yours?
  13. Half agree, strangely... about half of TTD does *nothing* for me, but the other half I love. SadioWitch and Funeral of Your Mind in particular are two of my favorite EW tracks.
  14. Did they take this down?
