  1. Vaporwave Vinyl Releases & Info

    What a dumbass website. I was refreshing since 9 this morning and it just kept saying 'maintenance' only to find out you have to click that particular link above for it to work. By the time I get there the bundle is sold out so I have to buy them all separate, then by the time I finish that purchase the bundle is back in stock and all the separate records are showing out of stock. Its a ~$4 difference but how stupid. Oh well, at least I caught it before it sold out completely.
  2. Kenneth Vasoli of Vacationer is releasing another perfect summer album, Mindset, on June 22. Can be preordered at https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/vacationer Hop on it NOW if you want a test press, there were five available and only one left now. Other packages include standard black vinyl or a double LP with instrumentals limited to 500.
  3. PO NOW: Richard Edwards - Verdugo

    New song, Howlin' Heart, can be heard on this weirdo website: http://www.thewildhoneypie.com/buzzing-daily/richard-edwards-howlin-heart Amazing
  4. Richard Edwards has a new album, Verdugo, out June 1, 2018. Three different vinyl options; black, red, and a neat hand-numbered tri-color gated behind a $75 package. http://richardedwards.bigcartel.com/ or https://www.joyfulnoiserecordings.com/products/verdugo First single, Minefield
  5. The version of this album that's on Spotify is censored... I didn't even know they still did that for albums, much less for this type of band. Annoying
  6. Here are my thoughts on the album. I hated it at first listen, which is why I said what I said. I woke up the next morning, however, and the first thing in my head strangely was the chorus to I Gave Up, so I gave it another chance. I've been listening to it a lot since. The album is not terrible, it's just not the record I was expecting as I prefer a much heavier Underoath. The choruses are really catchy, which is weird to say, and I find myself having them stuck in my head a lot. Chris is the clear standout on the album. His synths and whatever you want to call it are really well done. I'm very disappointed that the guitarwork is mostly absent on this record and there are only a couple standout riffs. I was wary about Aaron being back in the band because I was liking the band without his vocals a little more, but I think he's used very well on this album. His vocals blend better than they did in the past and he's used more as an accent than a secondary vocalist. The first song on the album is my favorite. If the whole record was like that song, this would possibly be my favorite album by them. Great hook, awesome guitars, beautiful keys, and the scream at the end makes my blast my stereo every time. It's got everything. Awesome stuff. The closing track is super strong too, it's my second favorite. This isn't my favorite album by Underoath, but I think if they use this album as a stepping stone towards the next one, and hone their new hookier side and pair it with more of the atmosphere and guitarwork they used to be so good at, that could be a really really good album. 3.5/5
  7. Secret Santa 2K17!!!! ***SIGN UP CLOSED!***

    Everyone that I had on my team has posted, I guess Lauren's list needs to be confirmed which I don't have access to. Do you know who is missing?
  8. New variant for those who missed the first batch, clear with white splatter/700 https://shop.theglitchmob.com/products/see-without-eyes-b-w-splash-2lp-set

    Congratulations my man! Thanks for everything you do here!
  10. Vaporwave Vinyl Releases & Info

    This album art is dope as hell
  11. I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but I just figured this out and it's a pretty cool easter egg--there's actually a secret message hidden in the title of the record, about what you should do if you ever find this album in your iTunes
  12. Can't believe this album is what we get after 8 years of waiting. This is barely an Underoath record at all, just wow. I fell for the meme. Also if thought Rapture was bad, give Wake Me a whirl--it's somehow laughably worse
  13. PO NOW: Richard Edwards - Verdugo

    They completely got rid of the tri-color on my screen, even the picture. Weird.
  14. PO NOW: Richard Edwards - Verdugo

    I tried that as well. Didn't work. Even downloaded two other random browsers to try. I've been paying $5 a month membership for like 3 years to JNR and I just cancelled it. This was supremely shitty. If anyone has an extra copy or whatever, I'll buy it off you.
  15. PO NOW: Richard Edwards - Verdugo

    I have a mac. I tried 4 browsers I have and it won't work. If I PM you my info would you mind ordering it for me? Cool if not
  16. PO NOW: Richard Edwards - Verdugo

    Thanks, I'll change my post. When you add it to the cart does it disappear for you as well? It adds fine but then when I check my cart it shows for a second then deletes itself.
  17. PO NOW: Richard Edwards - Verdugo

    His first solo record was one of my favorites last year. First single is really good. Looking forward to this a lot. *mandatory tag @jonnystorm777
  18. Represses of Wintersleep's first three records, Wintersleep, Untitled, and Welcome to the Night Sky have finally been repressed. https://www.dinealonestore.com/collections/wintersleep The colored variants are limited to just 150 apiece, so get on it before their social media accounts post about it! Otherwise, black vinyl doesn't seem to be limited and is 180g. All records come with a 7 inch of b-sides. Shipping absolutely sucks if you're in the USA. Ships in May. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ New Wintersleep album March 4, 2016. Preorders include either black or pink/green split vinyl, shirts, prints, cassettes, or some combination thereof. Released by Dine Alone. Unfortunately the vinyl doesn't ship until after the release date. https://wintersleep.store-08.com/pre-order/ First song released, Amerika: Sounds so good. Really excited for this one. Love the album art too.
  19. Albums That Should Be Pressed on Vinyl

    Please please please. I listened to it for the first time in a long time last year and for me I don't think it holds up as well as it once did, but it was a really cool concept pretty well executed. I'd love to see this on vinyl
  20. That'll be enough of that. We only shit on new people here at VC
  21. Funny, there are a couple reviews of the album floating out there and one specifically states the opposite--the first half is memorable while the second stumbles. I think you and I have somewhat similar taste though so I'm not completely let down now
  22. Rapture just played on BBC radio... yikes
  23. Albums you once wrote off

    Me too. Just getting into it. Thanks, Scott and Scott.
  24. While it wouldn't be the end of the world for someone to give you a basic answer here, I would suggest that instead of waiting, if you have these questions to seek someone out in your area and build a personal relationship with them. A lot of people put off meeting with an adviser because they don't want to meet now when they're planning to do something in the future. Well, a lot of the time what ends up happening is that plans change a year from now and the meeting gets put of for another year, etc etc. Best time is always now. Most advisers advise for free (only making money off of the things you decide to do with your money), and this way helps you and them to build a rapport and trust between each other so that they can follow you through your decisions and make sure things are going well for you over a period of time instead of a one-time suggestion over the internet. Fact of the matter is is that it's tough to give you a definitive answer without knowing much more about you, your preferences and risk tolerance, and where the rest of your finances lie. That's what I told all my clients when I was an adviser, anyway. Hope this wasn't too soapboxy--just want things to work out well for ya, it's important.
