  1. Past hour
  2. So, according to our overlords, SRC, this is getting repressed. No evidence on Matador or Spoon's site, yet.
  3. I'm not going to bite, but I figured some here might. First 250 to order get a "one time vinyl pressing" of the mystery release, but no way of knowing if you are in the top 250. Went up about an hour ago . . . https://counterintuitiverecords.limitedrun.com/products/662662
  4. Received mine today and have spun twice and it's equal chill and lovely, but it's not as immediate as the previous two LPs PROBABLY BECAUSE I've had it playing in the background when I need to concentrate on stuff... it's seeping and creeping on me though, getting some melodies caught up in here.
  5. So unwarranted haha 😉 Maybe you'll enjoy this one. At the very least, I'm happy to support Stephen.
  6. , I was wondering if you had these vinyl still available down below. Also, what variant is your Hell & Home by Counterparts? Counterparts ~ Hell & Home The Hotelier La Dispute
  7. https://www.vinylmeplease.com/products/the-national-high-violet-10th-anniversary-edition?variant=31930083573850 they were talking about VMP, which is now allowing orders to non-members.
  8. What did you get a copy of? The CT vol 1 seems to be sold out and the 10th anniversary (both editions) are sold out online....which I missed.
  9. Today
  10. I'm a big Floating Action fan, and I was surprised to get an email yesterday that he's got a new record up for pre-order and you can already take a listen on bandcamp. PIAPTK and Almost Halloween Time are probably my favorite labels putting out records right now. They always have some special versions for records that are already very limited. Pumped for this!
  11. Anyone that looking for a copy now it's open to non members also just grabbed one!
  12. I watched Scream, Queen! : My Nightmare on Elm Street last night and thought it was worth my time. It's less a of a horror doc than I was expecting and more about how Nightmare 2 effected Mark's life and career.
  13. Let's see whatcha got!
  14. https://www.joyfulnoiserecordings.com/collections/albums/products/tautology Release date: 9.18.2020 Experiencing an unexpected tragedy or loss often provokes a period of self-reflection, a time to contemplate one’s own place and purpose in the world. That was true for El Ten Eleven’s Kristian Dunn. When a beloved family member passed, Dunn found his own reflections on life emerging in the music he composed. Those expressions led to the creation of Tautology — a sonic meditation on the arc of human life, composed in three parts. Over the course of three discs, Tautology is, in Dunn’s words, “a representation of life from the teenage years, through middle-age, until the end of life.” The sounds on the album echo Dunn’s own experiences, veering from aggressive metallic riffs to blissful ambient soundscapes. And while there are shared melodies and harmonies through all three records, each one has its own distinct qualities: Tautology I, which represents adolescence, is angsty, aggressive and occasionally depressive; Tautology II is head-noddy and mid-tempo, and represents middle age; while Tautology III, quiet and ambient, represents one’s golden years. The music on the first disc, Tautology I, has a heavier sound that might surprise longtime El Ten Eleven fans. “I wanted to represent what my teenage years were like, when I was full of testosterone and depression,” says Dunn. “When you're a teenager everything feels so grandiose and dramatic.” The album’s second movement, Tautology II, reflects Dunn’s current state. “I'm middle-aged now, and this is the happiest I've ever been. I think that comes across in the music. This record is the one that sounds the most like the El Ten Eleven people are used to.” For the final chapter, Tautology III, Dunn composed a transcendent set of ethereal music inspired partly by the loss of a dear family member. “I don't know what it's like to be elderly. But my grandmother-in-law Frances McMaster was a very inspiring person. She died recently, and I was thinking about her a lot. She was really smart. She lived into her early nineties and she wrote her fourth book when she was eighty-eight. I'd like to be like her if I make it to that age.” Tautology is not a typical rock album, and El Ten Eleven are not a typical rock band. For seventeen years the instrumental duo of Dunn (bass/guitar) and Tim Fogarty (drums) have flourished outside the accepted norms of rock orthodoxy, releasing eight full length albums and four EPs, and performing over 750 live shows. Utilizing inventive arrangements and a masterful use of looping, El Ten Eleven create a sound much bigger than the sum of its parts. Most first-timers to an El Ten Eleven show are stunned that the band is a duo. It’s a refreshing sight and a palette whose boundaries the band have explored for unexpected additions to their sound. Tautology finds Dunn and Fogarty pushing this sound into new territory, experimenting with a range of textures not heard on previous El Ten Eleven releases. Joyful Noise Recordings will digitally release each of Tautology’s three discs, individually and in sequential order, beginning May 1st, with a physical 3xLP release on September 18, 2020. Dunn explains there’s no right or wrong way to listen to Tautology, suggesting that a deep dive into the full project will yield rewards. “I think someone could listen to any one of the discs by themselves and have a really great experience—even if they didn't know about the others. But if they do want to go deeper, I think there will be a lot of interesting stuff to discover. It works symbolically and it all connects. I think this is the best record we've ever done.” I Entropy With Report (STREAMING NOW) Jejune Moral Dynamite Division Lassitude ...

  15. Too bad I no longer have cash to burn, still irresponsibly grabbed one copy of the x/300. Very hype on some new tunes from them
  16. Been listening to Anberlin a lot recently. Glad this is finally being released.
  17. As much as I love Anberlin, I always find it hard to like this project, (which honestly, same goes for Loose Talk). There’s always a handful of tracks on each release that I really dig, but overall, not the biggest fan. Sorry for the completely unwarranted opinion. Haha
  18. Sounds like mastering was just finished. Probably were going to release it before tour in the summer but it’ll probably be cancelled.
  19. Bonkers. Complete and total bonkers is all I can really say what it was like watching that show. As was mentioned, it got crazier and more hair-brained as it went on. Just when you thought things couldn't get more ridiculous and just insane, here comes a new character player in this to make things even more nuts. Overall, it was a parade of scumbaggery at different levels by a cast of weirdos and fucked-up individuals. There were maybe two or three people that were redeemable and OK given the situations they were in. When can we discuss more to avoid spoilers?
