    The Mondo Records Thread - Show Posts Anyway?

    It’s a good thing Mondo records never get seam splits in the mail or else that jacket would be a real problem...

    The Third Man Records Thread

    If you’re a Vault member and you hate 7”s you probably need to reassess your life choices.
  3. Never got mine. Of course, I didn’t order it in the first place, but felt like chiming in anyway...

    My red phone was flashing so I was right on top of it.

    Official Newbury Comics Reissue Thread

    I’d be happy with any of the three.

    PO Now: Sufjan Stevens - Lonely Man of Winter 7"

    This has been up a while - I wonder if they just decided to sell the copies they originally said they were holding back for retail? I feel like it sold out faster than this when it originally went up!

    Matthew Sweet - "Classic" Albums Reissue Campaign

    It’s amazing what a difference there is between records pressed in the era of vinyl-as-an-afterthought when no one cared about mastering and the vinyl was made from recycled plastic cups & the era of vinyl-as-a-main concern when all attention is paid to sound quality. So many records from the 90s - ironically, many of which are so coveted because of scarcity - probably had no right to be pressed on vinyl in the first place with what little care was given.
  8. If I hadn’t just gone grocery shopping, filled up the gas tank, picked up this month’s prescriptions, paid my Netflix membership, bought a few early holiday presents and snagged a candy bar on the way home I’d be all over it...

    Swans Vinyl Reissues

    Looks like those “very few currently remaining” hand painted $135 albums have stuck around at least a couple more months...
  10. Anyone else find the title of this thread a little misleading? I was sitting in my car at Valvoline waiting for an oil change while they tried to hard sell me on a new air filter. I said I’m ok I don’t need one, but could they please add a copy of Polygondwanaland to my bill and I’d grab it on the drive out. The two dudes working there had no idea what I was talking about. So I pulled out my phone and showed them this thread to prove to them it’s available literally anywhere, and they both looked at me like I was some sort of madman. The nerve of some people...

    Black Friday RSD 2018

    Ok, the vinyl resurgence has officially reached “early 90s comic book cover gimmick” territory. The end is nigh.

    Black Friday RSD 2018

    I don’t live in Portland but have gone record shopping there many times and would think your best bets are: Music Millenium Everyday Music 2nd Avenue Records MM and EM are both huge and always get tons of RSD stuff. 2nd Ave is a little smaller but right downtown so depending on where you’re staying may be a little more convenient. Jackpot is is pretty good, too, come to think of it. I’d just map out whichever of these four is closest/most convenient for you and you really can’t go wrong.
  14. I feel like for $350 I could commission an album from Of Montreal and order my own test pressing.
