  1. As shitty as that is, I'm grateful that the moderators had the decency to ban him, and I quite enjoy not having to read his posts. I also like to imagine him staring longingly at this thread while shivering on the outside, in the same irrelevant isolation as the bots and guests who can't be bothered to register. I'm confident he's still frequenting this thread on the off-chance a mystery batch will pop up, allowing him to grab a few more to flip. That being said – hi, Halo 2. Just wanted to remind you that you're a shitty tryhard dork of a pasty white kid, and your terrible tastes and ethics are a byproduct of the fact your parents never loved you. Happy holida[aayy]ys.

  3. Point 1. Haha! Point 2. Exactly. For the record, there are non-black color variants that I AM fond of. But I find most color variants to be over the top and annoying looking. I also hate that there are records that are released in more than 4 variants and nowhere in there could they fit a black one. I also think that pressing on 180g and higher is an irresponsible waste of materials. I like many of the albums that they have exclusives for. I just don't like their tactic and I like even less that it works so well.

  8. To my ears, they are not bad, but nothing stands out as unique or worthy of owning vinyl. Certainly better than 98% of the musical universe, but... milquetoast postrock 3-4/10. How did Lost In Kiev get dragged into a Pray For Sound thread??? Except to say there is a polarity of like vs dislike of the music by postrock fans, which is the total subjectivity of muscial taste to begin with. I don't see them anywhere near each other in the postrock spectrum re: sound. Nuit Noire has reached 8.5/10 for sure, while pg.lost has sort of stalled around 7.5-8/10. This is about my threshold for purchasing vinyl in the past couple of years.

  9. tracking showed my two bundles got delivered Friday. looked everywhere and no package. waited a couple days went to the PO and asked about it there. they just told me to file a claim then this morning someone buzzes my apartment and lo and behold they have my box! stupid USPS man delivered it a whole 10 buildings down from mine. smh. so glad some kind person noticed it sitting there and decided to bring it to me 10" Consumed - Breakfast at Pappa's Snuff - Blue Gravy Swingin Utters - The Sounds Wrong EP 12" Against Me! - From Her Lips to God's Ears Avail - Front Porch Stories Bracket - Live in a Dive Diesel Boy - Venus Envy Dogpiss - Eine Kleine Punkmusik Fluf - Road Rage Fabulous Disaster - Put Out Or Get Out Joey Cape - Bad Loud Joey Cape - Doesn't Play Well With Others Old Man Markley - Down Side Up Only Crime - To The Nines Screeching Weasel - Bark Like a Dog Screeching Weasel - First World Manifesto Strung Out - Prototypes and Painkillers Sundowner - Neon Fiction Tilt - Viewers Like You pretty stoked this actually turned up! especially considering what wound up being in that box. a few things I already have, a few things I need to give a listen to and see how I feel about them, but def a lot of keepers in there. and @curator this was also in there and you get first dibs as promised

  10. So it started with the idea of just us dudes auctioning off our own personal records for charity but quickly morphed into other labels wanting to get involved since it's all for a good cause. Recordnerdz first official charity auction! All proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood. Rare records and test pressings from Fugazi, Jimmy Eat World, Sun Kil Moon and a lot more. . Special thanks to the bands and labels who donated some great stuff. http://bit.ly/RecordNerdz

  11. To be fair you basically hate all colored vinyl, McPherson. That's like your VC shtick. But yeah, Newbury is all about annoyingly charging steep prices for a colored variant of records that are readily available for cheap, and this is no exception. I actually imported a colored variant of this same album over a year ago, and even with international shipping it was cheaper than NC's base price.

  15. Who cares what people decide to do with their own copies on another site? They wanted a copy when they were available, had the funds, bought it, and for some reason when the pre-order finally arrived (yes, it was a couple months, not an insta-buy) they decided they would like to sell it (for idk, maybe xmas presents? medical expenses? who knows?) so what? might as well start pointing fingers at everyone on discogs selling anything limited that was released recently (or all-time for that matter) because fuck them and what ever is happening in their lives, right? survive/stranger things are hyped to shit right now if anyone hasn't already noticed and this repress probably wouldn't exist without that rise in popularity. yea, it wasn't a lot of copies to go around but you can't jump to grabbing pitchforks when people/shops don't sell records to you and/or your friends, directly, at absolute retail pricing, after it is sold out and in relatively high demand. It would be nice and sometimes it does happen, but unfortunately that is not the world we currently live in.

  20. That's not I was referring to. I meant to comment on your system quality as far as how an album sounds to you. Go listen to Tertia on a better system and you'll hear why we want a re-recording. Cause like Charlie said, if you think Tertia's sound quality is amazing, we wonder what other albums that have a low or poor DR rating that you think are amazing. I love Caspian. They're my favorite post rock band, if not my favorite band period, but the quality of their actual recordings, even as far as Waking Season, are middle of the road at best. Let me break down the dynamic range of Waking Season for you: Source: Samplerate: 44100 Hz // Channels: 2 // Bits per sample: 16 Bitrate: // 983 kbps // Codec: FLAC DR Peak RMS Duration Track DR6 0.00 dB -9.22 dB 5:21 01-Waking Season DR6 0.00 dB -8.90 dB 6:14 02-Procellous DR5 0.00 dB -8.59 dB 10:24 03-Gone In Bloom And Bough DR6 0.00 dB -8.02 dB 5:15 04-Halls Of The Summer DR8 0.00 dB -11.48 dB 3:33 05-Akiko DR8 -0.04 dB -11.26 dB 3:38 06-High Lonesome DR5 0.00 dB -7.59 dB 6:04 07-Hickory '54 DR7 0.00 dB -10.73 dB 6:11 08-Long The Desert Mile DR5 -0.08 dB -8.15 dB 2:34 09-Collider In Blue DR6 0.00 dB -8.05 dB 7:49 10-Fire Made Flesh Waking Season just barely breaks the transition section coming in at an 8 for 'Akiko' and 'High Lonesome'. That is still two and a half points away from being mid-tier, and that's at their best. Most of the album comes in at a lack luster 6 overall. That's down right awful honestly. And that doesn't have anything to do with the band, but the quality of the dynamic range. Keep in mind that is loseless and listening with proper equipment. It goes down dramatically if you are using an inferior source, or inferior equipment. Let me give you some post rock benchmarks: 5 | Isis - Mosquito Control 6 | Mono - For My Parents 7 | This Will Destroy You - Tunnel Blanket 8 | ITTCT - Above 9 | Omega Massif - Karpatia 10 | Godspeed You! Black Emperor - F♯ A♯ ∞ 11 | Russian Circles - Guidance / Alcest - Kodama 12 | Mogwai - Atomic / Earth - Hex 13 | Slint - Spiderland / Sigur Ros - Von Honestly, not a lot of post music breaks the into the good category dynamic range wise. It's kind of sad. But if you want to listen to a pretty big difference get a loseless copy of Mosquito Control and Spiderland, then listen to a DAC, headphone amp, and a good pair of open headphones, then compare. The difference is night and day, and that's not even getting into the good category. And keep in mind, this isn't about the album, but the quality of the sound. Since post rock albums don't hit that 14+ mark too often (because it's a fairly new[er] genre), here are some examples of the best sounding albums recorded and analyzed for their dynamic range: 13 | Beck - Mellow Gold 13 | Rage Against The Machine - Rage Against The Machine 14 | Neil Young - Harvest 14 | Beastie Boys - Licensed To Ill 15 | Nirvana - Unplugged 15 | Fleetwood Mac - Rumors 15 | Bob Dylan - Slow Train Coming 17 | Miles Davis - Live At Montreux 19 | Steve Earle - Copperhead Road Anyways, I doubt any of this will matter since you will just blast some CD in your car or spin a record on a DJ table. Ignorance is bliss I suppose.

  31. I have no complaints with private sellers selling things for that they are worth. In this particular case i just found it astonishing how many of them were already for sale. I don't recall the last time i've seen nearly a quarter of a records stock for sale within weeks of release. I'm sure some a few are from a people who just didn't like the record or need holiday cash. And they will get what they paid for it back which is great. But a lot of these are from the flipper population that silently stalks around here trying to make a quick buck. And they are barely breaking even off of these after fees which is even better.

    Florence & the Machine was my favorite show of the year. She is fucking amazing live. Sleepmakeswaves was number 2, even though they were an opener. They destroyed the stage in just 4-5 songs. Owel is number 3. Maybe the most personalized show ever. Only like 5 people there knew them, & I, my brother & wife were 3 of the 5. They shouted me out & let me pick a song. Plus got to hear a new song. Then we drank with Jay. Maybe this was number 1 lol.

  34. I have a brand new Ortofon 2M Red cartridge that's never been removed from its box. It was sent direct from the factory to replace one that was dislodged on a turntable I bought. Long story short, I replaced the cartridge before this one arrived and have no use for it. Asking for $85 ($99 on amazon). PM if interested.

  39. I would personally keep at least one probably all of my "original" pressings since I would enjoy revisiting that classic mix we're all used to – and also because I have a problem – but there's no denying that I'd go balls deep on a proper rerecording or miraculous remaster. It speaks volumes that most of us are still gushing over an album that's nearly 8 years old, but I think that's a testament to how powerful the songwriting is over the production quality. (Which isn't atrocious... it could just be so much better.) The idea of being able to hop back and forth between current Tertia and a 2019 Tertia that's on the same production scale as Dust & Disquiet is a delightful thought to consider.

  41. I went to Waterloo when I was in town for South By a few years ago. Pretty cool place. Grabbed St. Vincent self-titled (after seeing her at the NPR showcase the night before and not having her new album on wax yet). Beck's Guero and this awesome third man records slipmat that's still on my TT. Wasn't able to check out any shops when I was in town, but I'll hopefully be back for SX this year so I'll definitely be hitting up the other shops while in town. http://s2.photobucket.com/user/XbigcX187/media/photo_zpsb8e91124.jpg.html

  43. Accepted. Here is the before pic, which we already established was graciously send by chkadea. This was out of control. The after.... Whores - Gold 12" - Gold/Purple Swirl --- I have heard good things about this record, but had not listened to before. It rules. I really dig it. I think it might be sold out at the moment. Thus, glad i am glad to have a copy. Thanks! UXO - S/T 12" - White --- This is the new band by Chris and and Steve from Unsane and Today is the Day, respectively. It is also loud, abrasive and good. Coquettish - Total Pops Madness 7" - Tests Press --- This is from a japanese ska punk band. I was unfamiliar with them. Will have to give this some spins. Andes Peppermint Crunch Thins --- I love peppermint bark. I am crushing them as I type. The Emerald Mile --- It says the story is epic and looks intriguing. Next on my list. Star Wars Lego Wookie Gunship --- After typing this out I am going to put it together. I love me some star wars. I am actually listening to the Catalyst book (Rouge One Prequel) as i type. Broomstick Strawberry Gunpowder Green Tea --- My wife was eyeing this up. She is a tea junkie. I hope to get a cup in soon. Sun art paper --- Looks fun. I hope to send some friends my sun burned bird. Ren & Stimpy comic --- Always a good time. Nothing beats the episode where Stimpy loses his fart. Camping Clothes Line --- This looks useful. I plan to try it out once we thaw out. Swedish Dish Cloth -- I do a lot of dishes. My wife does few. I will put this to good use. Moosey X-mas Ornaments --- Already on the tree. 2 CD mixes --- Some sweet tunes on here: Bad Brains, Tom Waits, Murder by Death, Robert Johnson, Lera Lynn, Joy Division, etc. It goes without saying, chkadea did an awesome job. Thank you so much!! In appreciation here is another pic of the foster kitties.

  46. Of course it's better than pg.lost! But for real, I had very mixed thoughts my first two times through. I think overall there is a ton more energy in their songs, but at times it just seemed very bland, with some stand out moments mixed in. Need to let it sink in a lot more before deciding. I definitely liked it a lot more than I disliked it. I do feel like I'm always trying to like this band more than I actually do though.
