    Increased time, effort and cost. They aren’t amazon. Can’t blame them for pushing the whole thing. Now what they could do is offer to let people choose to wait or to just receive the bad slip case version now with no corrected case shipped later. But they don’t seem to want to compromise their vision.

    Test presses arrived yesterday. Metal Gear Solid and Days Gone. Not too shabby. Now just waiting on Lost.

    New York City record shops

    The shops in Greenpoint are where I spend most of my time. Best are Record Grouch, Captured Tracks and Academy Annex, but there are a couple others that can be covered in between if you have time. All pretty close together, and Peter Pan Donuts is excellent for a coffee break. Rough Trade in nearby Williamsburg is fine, but I rarely buy new stuff at a store and that’s all they do. The only shops I’ve liked in Manhattan for used selection are Other Music (now closed) and Ltd to 1. Everywhere else, the prices tend to be stupid.

    Anyone know if there are plans for Combinations next? That is the only Eisley LP I am missing.

    New Bright Eyes Album 2020

    I just bought the boxset before Christmas. Figured it was a healthy decision for my first holidays alone in seven years. Somehow turned out to be a great decision, and I was even more happy to hear this news yesterday! Can't wait to hear what they come up with.

    PO: Better Oblivion Community Center

    Sorry for the trouble! It looks like your order was to be shipped from a store that doesn't have stock currently, but we have other locations that do so I'll swap it over! Sorry we missed that, and we will be shipping out your copy ASAP! Thank you for reaching out, and if you have any other questions please let me know! Bull moose has the best customer service! Once again they’re coming through!

    New York City record shops

    Limited To One, Academy Annex and Generations are all the correct answers, but I also wanted to recommend Black Gold in Cobble Hill. Combination record store/coffee shop in a really cool part of Brooklyn that has a relatively small but well curated selection of mostly used stuff. https://instagram.com/blackgoldrecords?igshid=1w9kflvbifucy

    I would definitely check out Human Head in Brooklyn, lot's of good stuff there. As mentioned above, Generation is really good and Academy records (I think there's 2 of them).

    I went to Bird And The Bee's concert last night in Hollywood (with Dave Grohl on drums). It was a real love-fest for the band, lots and lots of friends and fans. Dave was really cool the whole night. At one point, singer Inara George saw a middle-aged woman in the corner near the front who was holding up a small sign. Inara said "I'm not wearing my glasses, I can't read your sign, sorry", then she walked over to the woman and read the sign out loud. It said something like "Dave, you're my Diamond Dave. Could I have a drum stick please?" Anyway, Dave Grohl did that whole "aw, shucks!" thing, and walked sheepishly out to the front of the stage from behind the drum kit and gave the woman two drumsticks and a big hug. The crowd went wild .... The songs sounded great, btw.

    Polvo Reissues

    The wait is over: Merge will reissue the first two albums from Chapel Hill’s endlessly influential and dearly missed POLVO on February 28! Their 1992 debut Cor-Crane Secret (listen) is pressed on blue & white Peak Vinyl, and its 1993 follow-up Today’s Active Lifestyles (listen) is pressed on red & mustard yellow Peak Vinyl. Both limited-edition reissues feature updated-but-familiar artwork; the former showcases rare posters and ephemera from the band’s archive while the latter includes never-before-seen photos. Reserve your copies of these seminal albums in the Merge store. Polvo superfans, check out our store exclusive 3-LP bundle which adds the band’s newly expanded self-titled EP on translucent teal vinyl, previously only available as a bonus item with our 2019 Born Under a Good Sign subscription series.

    Furnace Fest 2020

    Yup, UGA is coming to T-Town to play. that being said, there's a lot of hotels here. I honestly don't think it will be that big of a problem.

    Furnace Fest 2020

    I never went to Furnace Fest back in the day, even though my college wasn't but a four hour drive from it. That being said, I don't think going now will make as many memories for me as it would have back then. But here I am with way more disposable income and the resources to enjoy myself (like getting a hotel room instead of crashing on friend's floors). Isn't there a football game there that weekend that's going to require getting accommodations early?

    Deluxe vinyl reissue and tour coming soon. POLARIS TO EMBARK ON “21ST CENTURY TOUR” IN SPRING AND SUMMER 2020 MUSIC FROM THE ADVENTURES OF PETE & PETE TO RECEIVE DELUXE REISSUE TREATMENT ON VINYL “The Band That Lives Inside Your TV” are back! Polaris, the house band from cult-classic Nickelodeon show The Adventures of Pete & Pete, are escaping from your childhood television set and busting out on a national tour for only the second time ever. Polaris are Mark Mulcahy (Muggy), David McCaffrey (Jersey), and Scott Boutier (Harris). The three were longtime bandmates in underground favorite Miracle Legion, who’ve also reunited in recent years. Post-Polaris, Mulcahy went on to start an eclectic solo career, becoming one of the most celebrated and revered songwriters making records today. McCaffrey and Boutier played bass and drums together in several acts including Frank Black and the Catholics. The “21st Century Tour” will find Muggy, Jersey and Harris venturing out to 14 US cities between May and August. They’ll bring a mix of Polaris and Miracle Legion songs, plus some surprises to the sets. These shows will be the first since the band’s highly successful “Waiting for October Tour” in 2014-15, a jaunt across the country that found a generation of now grown-up Nickelodeon fans singing along to every word. The joyful reunion tour culminated in the beautifully recorded and packaged Live at Lincoln Hall double album. In addition to touring, Polaris’ hit vinyl record, Music from the Adventures of Pete & Pete, will be receiving a special reissue to mark the occasion. The release will be a deluxe vinyl package, including a CD of original demos dating between 1992-95, liner notes from Pete & Pete co-creator Will McRobb, and a complete album lyric sheet. It’s the ultimate edition of a record that Consequence of Sound called “a collection of songs that perfectly capture the confusion, whimsy, and wonder of adolescence.” The “21st Century Tour” begins on May 14th in Pawtucket, RI, at The Met and wraps up on August 8th in Maquoketa, IA, at Codfish Hollow. See below for the full itinerary, and keep an eye out for additional dates and news from Mezzotint.com as more information becomes available. 2020 Polaris Tour Dates May 14 - The Met - Pawtucket, RI May 15 - Gateway City Arts - Holyoke, MA May 16 - Space Ballroom - Hamden, CT May 29 - The Foundry - Philadelphia, PA May 30 - Mercury Lounge - New York, NY June 4 - The Sinclair - Boston, MA July 7 - The Crocodile Seattle, WA July 8 - Mississippi Studios, Portland, OR July 10 - The Chapel - San Fran, CA July 11 - The Hi Hat - Los Angeles, CA July 12 - Soda Bar - San Diego, CA Aug 6 - 7th St Entry - Minneapolis, MN Aug 7 - Lincoln Hall - Chicago, IL Aug 8 - Codfish Hollow - Maquoketa, IA

    Well, I did the first one. (I split the right side of the PVC sleeve open just by pulling and kept the sticker intact.) Now just a couple dozen more to go! I think the sleevecity sleeves don't look too bad.

    The main issue with this is having customers with no shipping experience sending these fragile pizza boxes/records all over the globe that would inevitably lead to damages and more problems. Also it was said that the plant mixed up the pressing numbers I believe.

    Didn't Arctic Drones close up shop last summer? Might have even been before that. It was definitely the best post-rock/instrumental blog out there. No idea what happened but they just stopped posting and it looks like the website is public domain now. I mostly just browse the relevant tags on Bandcamp and the wherepostrockdwells YouTube for new stuff. Heavy Blog is Heavy is probably my favorite online music review/blog site. @dawhizz

    Hi everyone! Recently I released my second project on vinyl. This time around I did a pressing of 200 copies (previous project was 100 copies). I used the same service, (Mobineko.com) that I used for the first project. They do a great job and have reasonable pricing. I definitely recommend if you are looking to get a pressing done. If anyone is interested in listening to the project or purchasing a vinyl, you can check it out here: https://sweepsbeats.bandcamp.com/album/terminal-14 It's probably best described as Lo-fi Hip-hop/Trip-hop. I would love to know what you think!

    Academy, Limited To One, Turntable Lab, and Generation are all within walking distance. I would start with Academy and work in the order that I listed. Generation has a hit or miss selection of used but them and Turntable Lab will have all of the newer releases.

    Best Ever Math Rock Album

    For me, the answer is toe "the book...", june of 44 "four great points" or faraquet "the view...". Made a playlist, what am I missing?

    Yeah... I was and still am a fan of World of Noise, Sparkle and Fade and So Much For The Afterglow. They lost me after that, the Songs from an American Movie parts 1 and 2 were both mostly forgetable for me. So I guess no one has gotten one of these yet. I said screw it and pulled the trigger on Sparkle last night from Acoustic Sounds with the coupon code 12percent to make it almost an even $40 shipped. The description of both the pressing and this seemingly new label Intervention are both way intriguing. It still bothers me a little that these are so expensive, but if I receive it and it's top notch quality, it'll be worth every penny to me. If it sounds like crap, I'm going to be pissed. lol
