  1. The 1-star reviews of the album on Target's website are amazing:

  3. Some AK3 news that may be of interest: I saw them with Bad Religion the other day in Philly and got to talk to Derek and Dan out behind the venue for a little bit. Derek told me a Good Mourning vinyl reissue is in the works for the 20th anniversary next year. He said they were thinking of doing it as a double 10" or maybe even an expanded version with the demos and stuff. Said he wanted it to be a deluxe thing. I asked him to lobby for the inclusion of that leaked "Angel Alcohol" / "Everywhere I Wanna Go" demo, and he said he'd try. He also told me the actual title of that song was "So Good To Be Here". Just some info I thought people here may appreciate.

  5. Actually, jokes aside, there was this dude in a Facebook group for Boris who was gloating about keeping his latest purchases not only sealed, but contained within their mailers. I'm not sure if he thought that exposure to air would somehow taint the music but he received so much flack for the post – rightfully so – that he initially got defensive over other people "telling [him] how to spend [his] money", but quickly removed his posts when he couldn't keep up with the text abuse. I'll never forget that guy. One of his main interests on Facebook was sourdough bread.

  10. I love when discog comments are like old man ramblings. Anyone getting distortion? Radiohead came to my school, back then I used to like milk warmed up on the radiator, but my friend became lactose intolerant and we always thought he lacked toast and was being tolerant of that. He went on to become a famous drag queen and my record sounds scratchy towards the end of one track because I have a shonky 1940s tuba attached to a diamond my ex girlfriend gave to me when she ran off with Marc Bolan.

  19. You insinuated that eating meat and dairy, or diary as you put it, is unacceptable and anyone who does is fucking stupid and a dummy. Why inject this crap into a conversation about vinyl?

  20. I wouldn't mind the existence of all these garbage major label novelty releases if they would just re-build their own in-house pressing plants to stop this crap from clogging up all the indie pressing plants nationwide.

  24. Imagine quintuple-posting on top of yourself in a thread for an album you've already said you disliked all 3 singles for. Mind blowing dedication to your craft of mindlessly copying and pasting stock updates and store links.

  25. At their show last night, Ben announced that they're pressing their S/T album to be released this year as a 20th Anniversary Edition, 'but we're Lucero so everything got fucked up.' He said it's scheduled to be out by the end of the year, but supply chain and manufacturing issues might push it to early next year, so then it'll be a 21st Anniversary pressing. I didn't think this was pressed on vinyl originally, so stay tuned!

    7/10 have arrived so far. Just waiting on the Yellow US Indie, Purple Blast and the standard black. Apologize for the shitty pic, but just giving a quick idea of what they all look like in reality. Edit: Added better image without glare from outers

  27. That’s cool and all if that’s a principle artists want to apply to their music, but I’ve found that 99% of them eventually go back on that idea, because money. Life happens, expenses happen – I wish I had a nickel for every time I heard an artist or label say that there are zero plans to ever repress a certain album, only to see it as a limited drop or RSD exclusive within 2-5 years. Bootleg markets – especially those priced this excessively – are everything wrong with modern vinyl though. Someone in another thread speculated that the kind of music that gets posted on VC – shit from the last 30 years, colored vinyl, limited editions – are more or less the NFTs of music enthusiasts. That seems exemplified with boots. These are all sourced from MP3s and can sound serviceable at best… but jokes aside, you can legitimately stream the same music at 320 or even 192 kbps, while simultaneously playing a YouTube video of “Vinyl Crackle Sound FX”, and you’re going to get the same result. From a listening perspective, it’s a total meme to willingly pay $70 for this junk. What that leaves is the satisfaction people get from having the spine of this record visible on their shelf. Or the option to have it framed, I suppose. Or the opportunity to snap a photo of it for Instagram (perhaps alongside the more affordable albums in the band’s discography) to larp as a devout fan and flex a complete collection, I guess. “But OG copies are $600. I’m not paying that.” Then don’t, as you shouldn't. Anyone who has been collecting vinyl for more than 6-7 years is probably aware of how everything eventually gets a reissue or repress. There’s been stuff that I would have never in my wildest dreams imagined would get repressed; albums from bands who’ve been defunct for 10+years, with labels no longer in business, and seemingly no demand to have the music pressed again. Patience is a virtue, etc. I would rather have a gap where that album will eventually go, than a garbage copy that “sounds okay” as MP3s on wax. But I’m me and you’re you. Maybe I value shelf space more than you do. Maybe $70 means more to me and the new releases I buy than it does to you and the prospect of saying you can finally own something that resembles a coveted album. People buy pastries with the sole intent of sitting on them and ripping ass so who am I to say what the world should or should not be spending money on at the of the day?

  28. It's like a car, once you let it leave the lot (packaging) it drops a fucking lot in value so I just never take anything out of the package.. I stream the album while looking at the sealed vinyl beauty in my hands and sometimes I even imagine just how much better it would sound but this boy here is not leaving the lot! I got 2k vinyl so I don't need to tell you how good my retirement is going to be once I cash in 🤑

    I'm no expert on what too hot is, but if my records felt warm to the touch and I could move them somewhere else, I would do that.

  32. An update! Just posted on Facebook: Hello, friends. Downward is Heavenward vinyl is now available through our Polyvinyl Records webstore along with Inlet. https://www.polyvinylrecords.com/store/hum We hope to have Electra 2000 and You’d Prefer an Astronaut available there in the not so distant future. That project is taking a little longer than expected, but both of those records are moving forward and we will share more information when it’s available. We hope you all are healthy and well. Thank you.

  37. This might be controversial, but I start by grouping by similar genre (Punk/Hardcore, Metal/Black Metal etc, Disco/Funk/Soul, House/Electronic etc. etc.) then sort by artist/chronological.

  38. Eh. Disagree. The tone is certainly similar between their earlier material, but it's certainly more honest or straightforward lyrically than other music. Not many other people singing about getting a new therapist to make sure they are around to support their kids.

  39. Big fan of the simple 1-color, translucent design they've been going with. Weird splits and splatters would feel so weird with their music. If they could keep the theme going with a clear royal blue Aegis and maybe an amber Takk or something, I could die happy.

  41. I swear there was a guy on this messaging board years ago who said he bought 3 copies of every record: 1 to play, 1 to keep sealed and sell at the top of market value for himself, and 1 to keep sealed and sell at the top of market value to put toward his kids' college tuitions. It was almost definitely a troll account, but the concept of that is still hilarious to me.

  46. Discogs is notorious for knee-jerk reviews from people who’ve never wet cleaned a record in their life, and are shocked that their entry level Audio Technica table is suffering distorted playback. I take the reviews and comments on that site with a massive grain of salt.

  47. I love looking at old invoices on my old Interpunk account and seeing how cheap vinyl and the cost to ship to Canada was back in 2006/2008. The good ol days.
