  1. It's at the point (not like it wasn't years ago) every label and artist needs to drop them and I don't know why they won't. People are having more issues than ever. My friend just needs to change his address and he's emailed multiple times over weeks and they won't answer him. They won't reply to any issue I've had in the last 2 years, they send the wrong variants all the time and don't want to work with the customers, they CAN'T COUNT, they don't update on delays, they don't even reply to the credit card companies I've used when I've had to file disputes. It's unbelievable how they're the worst of the worst and labels won't even recognize it or move platforms. My last issue I had to reach out to Chris at No Sleep (it wasn't a no sleep order, had no pre-orders, didn't ship for over a month and missed the holiday deadline Merchnow promised) just to get a response. That's how bad their "service" is. I've been bugging labels for years and the only one who did it was InVogue (due to artist complaints as well) but now they're back with them again. Honestly I've considered starting petitions to get artists and labels to consider any other option but I'm not sure how many signatures I could gather. If they didn't get so many exclusive variants from PNR, Rise, Fearless, Hopeless, etc. the vinyl community would be a lot better off.
  2. https://www.vinylmeplease.com/products/purity-ring-womb?variant=31803321253978 VMP exclusive for $29. I got the purple with the signed insert from 4AD shipped for less than $24 but whatever I guess.
  3. In a lot of cases these surveys are for hypothetical projects that are not intended to be developed (I can't speak for this one). When you do the survey you're helping someone graduate. As someone who had 3 internships and is finishing his master's this year I can assure you it's a big help if you have a couple minutes no matter what the topic is.
  4. There's a song called Pink Lightning that leaked and it's superrrrr good. I think Stardew is really good too but I prefer PL.
  5. https://4ad.com/releases/915 First 1000 limited violet vinyl pre-orders from 4AD will receive an exclusive 12"x12" insert signed by the band. Also available on black and CD. New song rules. More buying options here: https://purityring.kungfustore.com/ VMP Exclusive https://www.vinylmeplease.com/products/purity-ring-womb?variant=31803321253978
  6. Is it worth $14 for 1 song? I assume 1 song since it's not on Discogs.
  7. I would bet on 12 noon EST but they didn't specify in the email like they normally do
  8. https://www.royalcoda.com/product/compassion-vinyl-record-test-press If you wanna drop $150 on a test press now's the time
  9. Mobile only ticket entry with matching ID, no transfers, all sales final, how hard is it? LiveNation and Ticketmaster don't want to stop scalpers.
  10. https://merchnow.com/catalogs/silent-planet Unfortunately these were moved to Merchnever and are no longer available from their official Absolute Merch webstore.
  11. I think my max is $25. My wife and I would love to own their discography but there's no way I can justify that much...it's just crazy.
  12. We all saw her twitter pic in 2010, who cares?
  13. I just bought the black for $16 new. What's up with these $40 price tags I'm seeing???
  14. I saw Burial Waves play their first show tonight. Members of We Were Black Clouds, a bunch of other bands, and fronted by Kyle of Pianos Become the Teeth. They were pretty good, not quite as refined as PBTT, but I'd definitely recommend keeping an eye on them for an upcoming EP/LP (they played 6 songs over 30 minutes) or even catching their next show in D.C. if you're in that area. They opened for Slow Crush and Grivo which was a no brainer for me to attend.
  15. I reached out to their customer service and this is a known issue. For those that don't know it's not an email issue and it's directly a problem within discogs.com. I guess they're working on resolving it.
  16. I got my shipping notification today. My memory said these weren't going to be out for a while but the website said vinyl was expected to ship around of the day release. Stoked either way! Less than 10 of each left if you want one.
  17. Delayed until March 2020 now. I'm not surprised THR is pulling a stunt like this. It doesn't take this long to press anything and they're definitely being sketchy.
  18. Tape and vinyl came in today. Incredible packaging. GITD sounds great and beat the stereotype. If you haven't gotten this yet I totally recommend it.
  19. https://www.secretcityrecords.com/shop/shadow-offering/ "Braids have been taking the time and space necessary for little miracles to occur. Burrowed in their Montreal studio, the band has spent the better part of three years crafting Shadow Offering, their 4th album, due out in April 2020 via their new label home, Secret City. No longer riding the novelty of youth, the band deliberately took time to recommit to themselves and their craft, and channel new energy into their music. Typically opting for a private and insular creation process, the friendship between the four saw the band sharing their songs with Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie), and naturally resulted in Walla co-producing and engineering Shadow Offering. Pushing the band out of their comfort zone, he at once broke and unified the band’s dynamic, unearthing individual creative energy long buried over the years. With a new sense of confidence, listeners will find Braids at their most personal, unabashedly flexing through their new music. A luscious and expansive release, Shadow Offering leads us through a sonic tapestry of narrative. With heart-breaking honesty and precision, listeners traverse a nuanced and complicated world: one full of beautiful contradiction. Although the album directs itself at the failures of people to love and be loved, it also seeks to restore justice and attain blissful union. Its arc crests through the dark towards the light and learns how to dance with the dizzying rhythms of the heart. The songs bubble, sustain, dissolve, expand, retract. Braids, comprised of Raphaelle Standell-Preston, Austin Tufts and Taylor Smith, are a Montreal-based three-piece. Formed in 2007 in Alberta, they have solidified a decade-long reputation for their musical ingenuity and established themselves as one of Canada’s most acclaimed art rock bands. CD: 4-panels Digipak with folded lyric poster LP: 12’’ Opaque Red Vinyl in Standard Jacket with Matte finish, with gloss and embossed effect. incl. Printed Inner Sleeve with Lyrics. Digital download included."

  23. From the most current newsletter THE BUTTERFIELD BLUES BAND will be ROG #36 Fans voted to make the next limited and numbered title, Live At Woodstock available now for pre-order. Iconic Chicago harmonica player, Paul Butterfield, led a storming blues band in the 1960s and 70s that drew on rock, psychedelia, jazz and Indian classical styles and became a big influence on the San Francisco jam band scene. Their incendiary live set at Woodstock is finally getting the vinyl treatment, remastered with lacquers cut at Sam Phillips Recording Studio. This deluxe 2LP set with new artwork will be available to pre-order until February 20th, and then pressed and numbered to a limited quantity based on total orders. For the first month of 2020, we're introducing one new title and bringing back two for the new voting round. Up for vote this month: a new LeRoy Hutson Curtom collection with unreleased tracks, Hot Hot Heat’s Sire Records debut, Elevator, with bonus tracks and Freedy Johnston’s second full length Elektra album, Never Home, which has never seen a release on wax. https://www.runoutgroovevinyl.com/vote-for-next-release
