  1. I'll try to keep this short, so let's go. About a year ago I was fed up with intl shipping prices and the new EU tax law, that you have to pay tax (it's 27% here in Hungary) on everything you order, it is especially disgsuting that the amount is calculated on the item + shipping total, so basically a 20-dollar record with the least awful scenario of a 20-dollar shipping would end up in my hands for a whopping $50,8 which came to the point that collecting is becoming unsustainable. This is when I dug into mail forwarding services, and after about 5-6 shipments without any issues I can confidently say that it's a game changer. Disclaimer: please look into it yourself with your country details etc. So the process is I'm using ship7.com who has a warehouse in Delaware (tax free US state), I ship my records there mostly for free or cheap media mail, I have up to 60 days free period (after that it has a small fee)to wait for multiple packages and then I ship them out to Hungary together for way cheaper than it would be directly from the labels/stores would be, not to mention you can get US indie exclusives, get stuff from stores that only ship to the US etc.. (Also, this is up to how rulefollower you are you can play with declared value, but then again it might be risky, so it's on you to do it or not, but alone saving on shipping is huge, saving on tax is enermous). Obviously inserting a middleman is always a risk, as you have no help from the place you bought the record anymore after if arrives to the warehouse, but I was at a point of either this risk or selling off my collection. the rant stops now, here are some pictures of my last 10-record (teamed up with a friend for HIL, that's why only 9 records pictured) shipment and a sheet about the savings.

  11. Yeah that song sucks, cliche maroon 5 sounding shit... And after paying stupid dollars for the reissues from clouds hill then to have a million variants available everywhere way cheaper... there is zero chance I'll preorder this at 40 euro plus shipping.

  15. Very cool. Was wondering if they were going to put out the original demos as well, but it looks like it's just the updated versions. Still rad to see some of these songs getting a formal release.

  17. Order HERE (via Steadfast Records) Preorder item, releases on August 26, 2022 Brandtson announce a limited edition reissue of their final album, Hello, Control, on August 26, 2022 via Steadfast Records. The reissue features previously unreleased alternate mixes from album producer Ed Rose and marks the first time the 2006 album will be available on vinyl. Presented with all new artwork, expanded from the original concept and available on multiple vinyl variants. Hello Control, a pivotal release and the closing chapter on over a decade of making music for the Cleveland quartet. The first album with longtime friend and collaborator Adam Boose joining on bass, and the fifth release with producer Ed Rose. From the dusty lull of album opener “A Thousand Years” a new Brandtson begins to emerge. Putting a ready for the floor sneer to the road worn hallmarks of their back catalog, and taking a decided step into pop territory on singles, “Nobody Dances Anymore” and “Earthquakes and Sharks”. The alternate Ed Rose mixes were curated from the bands archives and have been previously unreleased in any format. Originally released by The Militia Group in 2006. The 2022 reissue of Hello, Control was mixed by Ed Rose, mastered by Adam Boose, and lacquer masters cut by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service. The gorgeous vinyl package includes Reverse Board printed jacket 11" 8 page booklet with additional photography and lyrics Black poly-lined inner sleeve Poly outer sleeve First Pressing Limited Edition of 500 Worldwide Opaque Yellow (/250) Opaque White w/Black Splatter (/100) Blue Blast (/50) (Limit 1/person) Test Press (/10) w/Stamped and Hand Numbered White Jacket (Limit 1/person) * Opaque Red (/100) (Indie Exclusive Variant/only available in bundle or from your local record store) Blue Blast and Test Press are limited to 1 copy each /person

    Soon? The Mars Volta

    Vigil ? Listened to it this morning... 🤢 I'm quite sure Incubus (to name one) took them by both hands to the hell of lost bands... They should have stopped it really earlier or like Antemasque, don't call it Mars Volta, by respect.

  23. I see this come up on social media and other places online whenever someone asks about AFI represses and why they haven't happen. This source of this statement was specific to an unauthorized repress of their first EP, Dork, a few years ago. An EP that they made as high school students before they ever considered taking the band seriously. No one from the band has ever made any statements about repressing music that they actually still perform live.

  28. I'm also using these companies for the last 3 years and can confirm that it's chipper to buy records outside of US, England, Australia through them. Also I'm living in the fucking Russia and still buy records despite of sanctions on payment and sanctions on shipping. Process became little bit longer and risky (pay with cryptocurrency) but have no other choice for the moment. The only issue I had with mail forwarders is that they cut my Turnover vinyl while opening the shop's package (you can ask them to remove it to reduce the weight of the parcel). But they returned me money for it.

  31. I have been disappointed with or didn’t like a bit of the new albums I have heard this year, granted there’s hasn’t been many since I don’t have the energy to pay attention to most new releases these days. Didn’t really enjoy Joyce Manor, Cave In (don’t hate me), and Duster. Built to Spill sounds like it’s going to be another slightly enjoyable but phoned in album from Doug. I really enjoyed: MJ Lenderman - Boat Songs Gospel - The Loser/MVDM Wilco - Cruel Country Black Country, New Road - Ants From Up There Cloakroom - Dissolution Wave Giraffes? Giraffes! - Death Breath (surprisingly probably my AOTY so far? I have never liked anything else they have done that much) I can already tell that Birds in Row is going to be incredible and will most likely be at the top of my list. Hoping new Loma Prieta and Bluetile Lounge come out this year.

  32. So upon further digging, looks like this was announced too early. The announce date is August 12th. Looks like Walmart and Amazon announced it too early. Actual release date is slated for Sept 23rd. Also there's another website that says they're is a deluxe "colored" version as well? Dunno if that conflicts with the Walmart apple variant. Unless... 🤔

  34. I managed to get an order in before they took them down. Based on past experience, there should be no issues with them fulfilling my order. Really excited to see this on 2LP. The single LP pressing has always felt a bit flat to me.

  35. Not sure what or where or how to note this, but for the first time that I can recall, I'm not allowed to use my ad blocker on the site here. Is that normal or a new thing? It's definitely never asked me to turn it off for years, and it won't let me access the site now unless i do that. Anybody?

  36. New release from Evan Caminiti of Barn Owl out today. Collab with Jake Muir. I'm a huge fan of Barn Owl, but his latest solo stuff as been a little too minimal to keep my interest. This seems like it has some familiar footing though. Also says they were influenced by Blood Incantation and Spectral Voice, heh. https://boomkat.com/products/talisman-50fe630b-91de-4160-8121-efa5a29aa6dc

  37. So, the difference between the “kinetic” version from the cloudshill store and the regular version is the gold foil cover? I’m also not crazy about the newest song. The first two singles were decent, but so far the new album hasn’t been quite what I was hoping for. Oh well.

Release Date: September 30, 2022 PRESSING INFO: First Press 2457 x Baby Pink Standard Gram 537 x Clear with White and Black Smoke and Baby Pink and White Splatter Standard Gram *Relapse.com Exclusive* 535 x White Standard Gram *North America Indie Retail Exclusive* (Not available through Relapse.com) 358 x Milky Clear and Black Half 'n Half with Metallic Silver, Black and Baby Pink Splatter Standard Gram *Relapse.com Exclusive* 136 x Neon Violet, Double Mint Green and Baby Pink Tri Color Merge with Neon Violet, Double Mint Green and Baby Pink Splatter Standard Gram *Relapse.com Exclusive* 100 x Clear (Not available to the public - Friends of band and label only) CITY OF CATERPILLAR return with their first new album in 20 years, Mystic Sisters! When guitarist/vocalist Brandon Evans, guitarist Jeff Kane, drummer Ryan Parrish and bassist/vocalist Kevin Longendyke unveiled their self-titled debut in 2002, their emotional, frenzied and often cinematic music was at the vanguard of the burgeoning screamo movement. Along with bands like Pg.99 (with whom they shared members), Majority Rule, Planes Mistaken For Stars and others, they helped develop a style of music that took hardcore into convulsive new territory. After years spent living in other parts of the country and playing in other bands—including Darkest Hour, Malady and Ghastly City Sleep, the long awaited CITY OF CATERPILLAR reunion shows snowballed into writing sessions. The result - Mystic Sisters, an album that recaptures the magic of old while taking the band’s music into exciting new territory! The winding and atmospheric title track that embodies CITY OF CATERPILLAR's experimental side features some noise violin from Evans’ former Pg. 99 bandmate Johnny Ward, while tracks like "Decider" and "Paranormaladies" showcases the band's roots with a flurry of viceral, noisey hardcore swagger. Tracked primarily at Montrose Recording in Richmond, Mystic Sisters was self-produced by the band and then mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Bosse-de-Nage). Ultimately, CITY OF CATERPILLAR are more concerned with creating a mood than telling a story. “The band is always focused on mood,” Evans confirms. “To me, that’s the most important thing. I don’t really want people dissecting what we’re trying to say, because it’s not really about us. It never has been. What we cared about 20 years ago was innocent, raw emotion, and that’s what we care about now.”
