I always forget that's a feature, seems like it would just flood my inbox. 

 

Usually what I do is just check back every few hours and open everything with a "last unread post" star in a new tab.

I believe that's what most people do.

 

Anyone remember the guy in some hype thread who begged everyone to stop posting right before he went to bed to bed – unless it was official news – because he didn't want to wake up to a million e-mail updates?  That was pretty good, and worked out just as well as you'd assume it would.

So... There's still no official list yet? 

Think it'll probably be coming soon as RSD official websites just posted about the Bowie stuff thats coming. They'll do a few more days of dripfeeding but probably drop the list end of next week as itll be roughly a month ahead of the day itself at that point.

 

Pure speculation but thats the pattern I've discerned over the past few years.

I understand @Shitty Rambo

I am a mod at another forum and I know. Don't know how you do it honestly. It's just some people usually like to fuel the fire. Maybe that's what I'm doing.

 

And @Derek™, you are right.  Always.  In time, I will learn the correct path. But the email system has yet to fail me.

I can list the many ways that email notification has helped, but then some will find a way to refute each reason. Long story short, it's been a game changer for me. I can't log in at work (lovely Barracuda blocker) and its the only way to really keep up to date. 

I don't really get an email for each post, its more along the lines of a thread inside that same email. It's way easier than looking at my phone every 5 minutes, and scrolling through all those pages. 

 

And now back to regular programming. Lurking was way more fun.

 

I'm in for 2 releases.

 

Usually with RSD, its like my old abuela used to say "if you hear water, it's usually because there's a current coming". I have yet to see any major rumours about RSD not be true, except for if something is a US or EUR release. 

 

Even the DMB release turned out to be on that prelim list. Which makes me excited every time someone posts. I still don't get why I don't gey why they keep the list under wraps for so long. I feel they are doing themselves a disservice. Not that it's gonna get less people to go, it's just not as funner.

I think the main reason is accurate info cause many labels are scrambling to get their releases together and it also gives record stores a chance to make an educated guess on what they want from the list before everyone freaks out and spams their local stores and the big dogs get like 50 of one title and the little guy can't even get his store one copy

Have there been any announcements of a St. Vincent release? I dont feel like browsing through the 15 pages of randomness. I'm lazy.

no updates.  strangely quiet on all fronts st. vincent -- no news...or even rumors...about any tour dates or plans to play any festivals in 2017.  

could very well be that the album is announced for release on RSD when the list is dropped, though.

if that happens, then lolla, OL, and ACL are possible 2017 N.A. festivals where she could make appearances.

I know of at least one major US summer festival that tried, and failed, to book St. Vincent.

unless she committed to lolla very recently, she won't be in the lineup when the announcement is made in less than two weeks.  

 

90% of lolla 2017 was booked by the end of last summer (well, october), and st. vincent was nowhere to be found...

 

in any event, i know for a fact that her album is finished (many other reports can corroborate), because i've heard a few tracks already.  it all comes down to whatever the hell she has planned for the release.
