  1. PO NOW: Jets To Brazil reissues

    Well, the real important thing is that you get extremely mad online about it
  2. RSD Black Friday 2017 thread

    The fact that the list price is cheaper than The Greatest Gift should be a tipoff that it's not the full album. Carrie and Lowell Live is 89 minutes long, it'd have to at least be a double LP, and more likely a triple. No way it'd retail for $17. EDIT: Confirmed by Asthmatic Kitty to be the Blue Bucket of Gold 12": https://www.reddit.com/r/Sufjan/comments/76rqgg/looks_like_carrie_and_lowell_live_will_be/
  3. PO now: Baths - Romaplasm

    Labels should take every chance they get to slap collector nerds in the face imo This right here. Plus, you don't think labels are going to sell through 1000 copies or whatever of an album without the benevolent force of collector culture? LOLOL
  4. The colored version is sold out most places, but Floating Action just posted this link on Facebook. $30 gets you the colored version, a lyrics zine, and a shirt. http://infiniterepeats.limitedrun.com/products/602567-floating-action-is-it-exquisite-color-vinyl-lp-ir-plus-version-ir0001
  5. Especially considering the Turntablelab version looks to be a picture of an actual copy, yet it ships later than the Bon Iver store version??
  6. So I just happened to stumble across this? The description says "Limited repressing of the 2012 release with insert" and "This is a repressing of the original 2011 release in a gatefold jacket with insert", respectively, so it looks like they got a hold of the original plates and are doing a straight repressing of the original Record Store Day releases. It's billed as "limited", so hop to it, kids. https://www.smlxlvinyl.com/collections/latest/products/anberlin-never-take-friendship-personal-lp-limited-smlxl-repress https://www.smlxlvinyl.com/collections/latest/products/anberlin-cities-2lp
  7. Sucks that Amanda Palmer always seems to worm her way onto otherwise-cool compilations, but I'm looking forward to this. For anyone who isn't aware, there was also a tribute to Tallahassee that came out on that record's 10th anniversary featuring AJJ, Laura Stevenson, Bomb the Music Industry, etc. http://store.crookedneighbor.com/album/tallahassee-turns-ten
  8. WANT: Vietnam War songs on vinyl

    Given how deep you already are in this project, I doubt anyone here is going to be able to help you - this board is mostly people in their 20s-40s, predominantly interested in contemporary music - but I gotta say this is an impressive undertaking. I just started the Ken Burns Vietnam miniseries and it has made me aware of just how little I know about the war, and how little public discourse I've heard about it in my lifetime, beyond "it wasn't great".
  9. Husker Du - Savage Young Du

    As were the Meat Puppets, but those bands all got along with each other, or at least got their shit together long enough to lawyer up. My understanding is that at least in the past, the Hüskers preferred losing out on all SST royalties to talking to each other, so it's a pretty big deal if that has changed.
  10. Husker Du - Savage Young Du

    Interview with a little backstory here, plus a stream: http://www.npr.org/2017/09/05/547854997/first-listen-husker-du-savage-young-du It sounds optimistic about future reissues, which is good. "Alternate Land Speed Record" had me concerned that they were unable to get anything accomplished with SST. I'd love to hear properly mixed and mastered versions of Zen Arcade & New Day Rising.
  11. Whoops, only checked the first 3-4 pages. This board sure moves faster than it used to
  12. 10/13 on Matador http://store.matadorrecords.com/lotta-sea-lice
  13. I have to assume they either cut the hidden track entirely or put it behind a locked groove. Just with the music alone this album is right on the cusp of not being able to fit on a single LP, I don't think they'd be able to add 10 minutes of dead wax.
  14. This release has a bunch of demos from this album: https://www.discogs.com/Spoon-Bonus-Tracks-2008-2009/release/2591006
