  1. Record Store Day 2018

    Went out midday in Pittsburgh & still found Tennis System & Balmorhea. Stoked! Also picked up Glassjaw.
  2. MOL - JORD

    This variant is killer in person.
  3. MOL - JORD

    I posted about them a bit back in the Post-VC thread as well because of their “post-metal” tendencies although not the most fitting band for the thread. They seem to emphasize “shoegaze” in their description but I feel like their “gaziness” is minimal. It shows up at times but I think it’s way more post-black metal than anything. Don”t sleep on that “II” EP either. It’s just as good!
  4. A Place To Bury Strangers- Pinned

    The deluxe pink vinyl is awesome looking. Got mine today. Shiny foil cover. Pressing sounds great, too.
  5. MOL - JORD

    This album effing RIPS. Been on these guys since I randomly found on Bandcamp early this year. Def my AOTY thus far. I hear all kinds of metal sub-genres throughout. “Vakuum” is batshit ridic.
  6. intheclouds 12 Lathes of Christmas

    I got a quote of $14 for an 8oz shipment which I would think would cover 1 7”.
  7. The Beer Thread

    Yeah I know this is the first one I really really wanna get my hands on. But I love the others, especially Mega Man. Def heard good things about TC.
  8. The Beer Thread

    Has it really been July since anyone posted here?? Anyways, making a plea to anyone in Richmond VA that might be able to hit up The Answer on Saturday. Dying for that Zelda glass!
  9. A Place To Bury Strangers- Pinned

    Yeah start to finish it’s really good. Waiting on my vinyl to show up to check out the bonus tracks.
  10. Record Store Day 2018

    Lol that’s some shit. After listening to the song it’s far from top-tier Flo anyways so even at $10 I’d pass.
  11. Record Store Day 2018

    Hadn’t heard about this new Florence & the Machine single coming out. 7” clear vinyl. No clue if this is UK only. https://www.stereogum.com/1986767/florence-the-machines-new-single-sky-full-of-song-out-on-record-store-day/news/
  12. This was probably my favorite VC thread ever
  13. There is no bad way to start listening to Caspian. Start to finish it’s all pretty amazing. Throw all their material on a Spotify mix & hit shuffle. Then you watch the Larcom Blu Ray & hear that old ass song Cigarette which is also amazing (& not on Spotify).
  14. Going to hop on that Air Formation today. High praise from Don over on IG! EDIT: Don you’re dead on about “Clouds of Orion”. That could have gone on another 10 min & I’d be happy. That Blush Response band I posted released their first full album last week. I really dig it, especially the opener & title track. Vinyl is $38 shipped from AUS to US & there is no benefit to a group buy, so I’m out for that, but def worth streaming! http://blushresponsemusic.bandcamp.com/album/hearts-grow-dull
  15. Wess Meets West album is out & is damn good... http://wessmeetswest.bandcamp.com/album/a-light-within-the-fracture
  16. The Walking Dead

    Pretty much the premise of the show now, no? I’m now 4 episodes behind for the first time since season 2 when I started the show. I literally have no desire to even continue at this point. I’ve lost the ability to care about any charcters. It sucks because I used to love this show, but I just can’t do it anymore. I’m not even actively avoiding spoilers anymore yet I see no one talking about it anywhere.
  17. Cloudkicker Discovery & EPs represses are up for preorder. Had no clue about this until I randomly saw someone talk about it on IG this morning. https://www.blood-music.com/store-us/mystery/932-abigail-williams-legend-special-edition-lp.html https://www.blood-music.com/store-us/mystery/931-moonsorrow-voimasta-ja-kunniasta-2xlp-repress.html EDIT: Ignore the info in those links. They actually take you to the Cloudkicker albums.
  18. A Place To Bury Strangers- Pinned

    Yeah both tracks just get in my head & I have to interrupt what I’m listening to to put those on. Definitely can’t wait for the rest.
  19. A Place To Bury Strangers- Pinned

    Unnecessary bump but just curious if these 2 songs released have grown on others the way they have on me. I was unsure of both as they were released but all of a sudden I can’t quit listening to either. Love the addition of the female vocals. And they’re both so catchy in a weird way imo.
  20. (PO) NOW! - Spurv "Myra"

    That’s a killer first track. Sounds like a nice tone setter. That crunchy as hell bass at about the 2:45 mark was niiiice. You’re dead on with that “familiar but new” sound. Color me excited! EDIT: I suppose that crunchy bass is actually throughout the whole song (missed it upon first listen just using shitty phone speaker). But listening again the song as a whole is even better. Sounds like they are upping the heaviness here but keeping their over orchestral sound as well. Giggity.
  21. Athletics - BFRSD

  22. I’m in love with these songs. I really liked the first album but got a little burned out by it. Great change of pace so far.

    On Manchester Orchestra’s IG story right now is them recording a cover of Down With the Sickness lmaooo
  24. Looks like there’s some new stuff coming this year. New track is on Spotify (Still Life).
