  1. Anyone nab an extra Taylor Swift? I had the last one in the store in my hands but ended up giving it to this girl who was inconsolably in tears when the shop owner told her they were all gone. I overheard the conversation & just broke my heart. The girl is the same age as my niece & reminded me immensely of her. It was obvious she’s more hardcore Swiftie than I & not a flipper. She started crying even more when I gave her the 7”. I believe in karma. So there’s my good deed for the year. 😉

  4. So just a repeat of what happened to compact discs in the 90's lol. Good. I look forward to The Hobby™️ nose diving and becoming irrelevant so I can actually enjoy collecting again. Live by the 229th repress of Fleetwood Mac - Rumors, and die by it.

  5. No big surprise there. It was bound to happen. So what better time when wages are still stagnant and food & gas & basics prices are going up?

  7. My repress came in today. Probably the best sounding of the 3. Doesn't have the extra tracks (Anniversary and the hidden track) like the 2012 pressing does, and that one has pretty noticeable inner groove distortion. I think that helps this one a bit. I though the mock up looked horrible for the new variants, but honestly it matches the look of the album art pretty well!

  20. I mean, yeah. Hopefully you get what I actually meant though. Damn, I really do respect supporting labels, shops, and bands as best as I can… but it sounds like you’re far more receptive to new buys than I am. Not saying that my way is the best way to consume music, but I do have a specific glide path for an album to earn its spot on my shelf. (Especially as someone who values quality over quantity, and just shelf space in general.) I feel like it has treated me really well and kept me away from regrettable buys. I don’t know if it’d value you at all – and I’m hardly the only person who does this; not trying to say I’ve trademarked some perfect system to establish a record’s value or desire – but Curiosity to Purchase is a methodical journey that I follow pretty habitually. Not that you or anyone asked, but curious if anyone does something similar: (I’d throw all this shit in one of those spoiler tags to avoid a wall of text, if I could. But VC took those away for some reason. So, sorry.) [Scope] Someone will tell me to check out an artist or band. I’ll Google them to see if they’ve got a bandcamp. This lets me determine a few things right off the bat. Like if vinyl even is available to begin with (or sold out), or what the price of the digital download may be, if there is one. And most importantly, it lets me preview a couple of songs to make sure the album is within the realm of something I’ll even enjoy. [Stream] I’ve decided I could be into the album, so now it’s off to Spotify to give it an open-minded listen. Why not just start with a Spotify stream? When I don’t have time for a full album, I’ll opt to just “play my library” (shuffle). It works better when Spotify doesn’t remember all the junk I’ve decided is not for me. I’m sure there’s a way to go in and clear your history / plays – and maybe some folks get value from exploring aimlessly and keeping a log of everything they’ve played – but I personally don’t. Plus, if the stream treats me well, scoping out the bandcamp page helps me shift to… [Digital] I’ve decided that as a whole, this album is a banger. Or I think it is. Maybe. It could be. I’ll need another listen or two in a different setting, and so now it’s time to secure a copy digitally. There’s a number of reasons I do this, ranging from wanting to hear the record again – anything I download, I know I’ll be playing more than the initial Spotify stream – to wanting to hear it in a higher quality, like FLAC. If the digital copy is < $8, or free, I’ll chip in a few bucks on bandcamp to add it to my collection. You get permanent access to download it at any quality, and it supports the artist for the cost of an energy drink or two. But the icing on the cake here is that sometimes it scratches the itch of “owning” the album. Anyone else experience this, ever? Having it in the digital library is sometimes enough for me, especially if the entire album is not as consistent or doesn’t grow on me as much as I’d hope after 2-3 plays. If the album is not on bandcamp or the digital is $10+, I obtain it through less savory methods. Because at that point, if I revisit the album and it’s just not clicking, I’ll remove it from my library [no longer in possession of it, even digitally] or I’ll move to the final phase… [Purchase] Self-explanatory. The record has proven itself over repeat listens; the entire experience is a treat or there is a far larger portion of the album that is more enjoyable than not. This helps filter out albums with some really nice tracks that fall short as a whole experience for me. I won’t go into details on hunting down my preferred variant or researching to see what sounds best, but you get the idea. Sometimes this means paying $1-7 more if I’m unsure of the album, kinda’ like it - enough to buy digitally - and then ultimately feel confident in, only to loop back and buy it through bandcamp. (How rad would it be to receive a discount on vinyl buys through bandcamp, for the cost difference of the digital download, if you had previously purchased it digitally?) But that’s a rarity and honestly, double-dipping on bandcamp is not something I’m going to lose sleep over. I feel dumb for even writing all this out because who gives a shit? I’m sure someone will try to call it an unnecessary or elitist approach to consuming music but in a way, yeah… it touches exactly on what you called out. I don’t buy singles and I listen to albums front to back, so they’ve got to earn their spot on the shelf. I’m not in the business of buying stuff I’ll only play the first side of and then get bored with. This whole process has served me well for probably a decade or more. Just food for thought I guess. May be fun or interesting to consider how much that varies from the overwhelming “stream culture” we face today.

    My local just got copies of MC in, but of course they priced them at $150. Or $175 on discogs. Retail store flipping is one of my biggest pet peeves.

  26. Okay, you got me to click this. You own 3 copies of Thursday’s Full Collapse (Live), with 2 copies being the white variant? And 4 copies of the same variant for a Christmas themed album from Train? If this isn’t a troll account – get help.

  27. Caught these guys on their farewell tour last night. Been a long time fan but never seen them before. Holy hell did they bring it last night! Great setlist with a mix of everything, tons of energy, and the sound was awesome. Pretty much every song sounded much better live. If you have a chance to see them, I highly recommend. Far exceeded expectations even though they didn't play Rainbow Signs, which is my favorite song of theirs.

  34. yo I'm not trying to be any kind of way here and I rarely post but wanted to share. I have recently heard the Loser LP in full... all I can say is everyone is in for a treat that is well worth 17 years of waiting. The record is Gospel at their most aggressive, discordant and captivating. The label talk of it being a 'masterpiece' is 100% on point. All 8 songs are barnburners and rest assured: they are all Gospel through and through. I love this band and am so thrilled that they are still doing their own thing with reckless abandon or care for our expectations. I am truly blown away and excited for you to hear it too.

  42. It was amazing. So much great energy and the band sounded tight and flawless. They played about 22 songs...I'd say 2 from each record. And it was Dulli's birthday so teh crowd got all pumped singing him 'Happy Birthday'...and he was trying to be low-key about and you could tell he was flattered and appreciative.

  43. I've been busy but surprised to not see this in here already https://fivehundredbucks.bandcamp.com/ New video out today too: It's on the pricier side for a single LP, but it's completely diy, so support "up and coming artists" (it's Jeff Riddle from THM). Enjoy your weekends folks.

  45. I'd be in favor of one as well. I hopped in here thinking it might have been bumped with info on RPBMH's imminent release. It's pretty much confirmed, and I think the latest Tyler record had a PO Soon thread when the album released for a similar situation (plus another PO Now thread when the vinyl did eventually drop).

  46. Got Laura Nyro, Rick Astley, Bardo Pond and then grabbed an Art Pepper at closing for the sweet deep employee discount. Also got the Tennis System in the mail from the GF Record Club. It was crazy working this year, the Taylor was a fiasco so we did a raffle and are giving our 14 copies away for free. Only felt sorry for one poor girl who stood in line for hours and was told the wrong info and to just get there early, so I may have folded her entry in a certain way to ensure it was pulled.
