  1. Anyone have any tips for what Detroit record store is the most efficient for RSD? I want to go somewhere next Friday to try to snag "Welcome Interstate Managers." I have been to 10 Detroit record stores or so for shopping, but the only one I have visited on RSD is Village Vinyl. That place is the size of the shoebox, but I guess it doesn't matter because I'm going to be spending most of the experience waiting in line outside.
  2. Thanks for the tip on this! Had my eye on it for awhile and happy to finally purchase at half-off.
  3. I have now spun the "Trees" version three times through. Sides 1, 2 and 4 sound great, but side 3 sounds pretty bad--lots of noise and "blips". I'm not good at descriptors with bad vinyl sound, but this whole side sounds "metallic." Also, "Epiphany" gets stuck, but that could be a problem with my vertical tracking force (except the last songs on the other three sides are fine). I was planning on keeping my "Weeds" version unplayed, but now I'd like to know if it is a better pressing than "Trees." Also considering buying the Target version to compare.
  4. My “Trees” and “Weeds” arrived! Wish I could have bought them all. Spinning for the first time right now. Here’s my Instagram with some shots: https://www.instagram.com/p/CHgdHNEpYP3/?igshid=cos3wcebw3kg
  5. How does one "sign up"? I am trying to figure out how to get Fountains of Wayne- "Welcome Interstate Managers" on RSD Black Friday, and have no idea how to pull that off. I just found out today it is going on sale that day! One of my fav albums of all time, and I would wait in line to get it if I had to, but worried I'm going to have to pay a flipper a fortune to own it.
  6. Edit: Oops, sorry didn't realize this had already been posted! (FYI the collector's edition of 'Brother, Sister' is up again, and it looks like there are 4 copies of "both worlds" and 3 black copies. I had planned to buy it when they put it back up, but I didn't realize it was $120. Too rich for my blood: https://mewithoutyou.com/collections/frontpage/products/brother-sister-collectors-edition)
  7. First of all, damn--I love this record. Downloaded the MP3s yesterday and I had a bunch of time in the car today and already listened all the way through twice. The rhythm section is especially kick-ass. Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised--exceeded my expectations. Secondly, had a great customer service experience with Merch Central over the last week. I first reached out about the lack of Media Mail, and after half a dozen email exchanges with two people in their customer service, they remedied the issue. First, they told me if I place the order with Priority Mail, they would refu
  8. Also currently listening on Bandcamp. This is actually the first time I have ever heard the whole album--previously I had only heard TFA songs on Deep Elm comps. I had dug them, but never explored.
  9. And now the Warner store: https://store.warnermusic.com/canvasback/artists/frightened-rabbit.html?eml=2020November6/5153280/6086410&etsubid=42748616&cat=17584
  10. For sale on Bandcamp: https://frightenedrabbit.bandcamp.com/album/the-winter-of-mixed-drinks-2020-repress?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=frightenedrabbit album the-winter-of-mixed-drinks-2020-repress&utm_source=album_release&utm_content=fanpub_fnb
  11. Thanks, that is a good option. I prefer the splatter, but might come down to cost. I was also planning to get the Casket Lottery/Touché Amoré split 7" from Merch Central (had never heard those songs until last night; good stuff!).
  12. I went down a Casket Lottery rabbit hole last night, and that reminded me to order this. I'd like to order from Merch Central, but the only shipping option I am getting is $10.45 Priority Mail. In their FAQs it lists Media Mail, but I can't get it to display as an option during checkout. Anyone had any luck there? I am digging these two new songs, and I also need to go back and pick up some of their older work.
  13. I had been debating MerchNow vs. Holy Mountain variants all morning, but I went with Holy Mountain because the site was working at 2:00. I used PayPal and my payment went to "Daniel Trudell JR" so hopefully he has something to do with Holy Mountain and I didn't get hacked.
  14. Looking to either buy or trade for The Juliana Theory- "Understand This is a Dream" on vinyl. Would prefer to trade for, as I cannot afford the typical $100 price tag. Willing to trade $100 (or more) worth of records from my Discogs store.
  15. I also based my order on the cover art. I went for two though because that gives you free shipping.
