  1. These titles are cheaper at Plaidroom. https://www.plaidroomrecords.com/collections/beastieboysindie
  2. FYI, the Bladerunner 2049 web store exclusive 2xLP (pink/teal) sounds pretty lousy. Surface noise and distortion throughout, and my copy has side A pressed off-center and side C is bowled. Hoping Mondo can resolve this, though I may just inquire about a refund. All the reviews on Discogs are pretty poor as well. Beautiful score and artwork, but I guess I'll have to stick to digital files. Can others comment on the sound quality on their LPs? And I cleaned the records. No improvement.
  3. Yeah. I can appreciate the new album title announcement.
  4. All that hype just to announce people can stream compressed 192kbps versions of their albums. Whoopdy-freaking-doo!!!
  5. Rumor has it, the clear pressing has some issues.
  6. I picture a lot of people getting into Tycho with this new album and then getting really disappointed to realize there's no female vocals on his earlier works. I like Tycho well enough, but I've always found his music to all sound more or less the same. While these vocals arent my favorite, they sound a bit too poppy and Frou Frou to me at tikes, it does break up his redundancy of sound. It's probably my least favorite Tycho album to date, and I own his discography.
  7. Several users on the Needles and Grooves forum have the vinyl flat and have had great success, I believe there is a dedicated thread for it over on that forum. Probably lots of tips and advice.
  8. Cool. Do they release web store titles at a specific day and time, or is it all random?
  9. Plaidroom Records has these up now. The limited color vinyl is the cheapest you'll find them online at Plaidroom. About $10 - $12 cheaper than Bullmoose or Temporary Residence.
  10. What genres, artists, record label, etc? Do you have any jazz LPs on Blue Note, Prestige, or the Impulse labels? Can you share the discos list?
  11. Email graveface. They will take care of you with a replacement, no questions asked. Excellent label
  12. But will it be pressed off-center like all the other copies of this album?
  13. Nice Doug find. I found a sealed copy of it at Amoeba years ago, but it wasn't 35 cents.
  14. I feel very fortunate to have been able to see ASC when they were touring LLO and earlier material. Never forget hearing Steps and Numbers live in Madison WI along the lake on a summer night. Outdoor shows are zee best.
  15. Indie Only Gold Vinyl up at Bullmoose https://www.bullmoose.com/p/30509441/russian-circles-blood-year-gold-vinyl-indie-only-color-vinyl
  16. Yeah, it's called the Pay It Forward Thread. I'll admit, it's pretty awesome. I've nabbed so many good albums from that thread: Sleep - The Scientist Flying Lotus Gorillaz Demon Days Bunch of Jazz, Monk, Miles The National Boxer, etc. I've probably grabbed 25 LPs from that thread. People are very generous over there. I've also given away 25 or 30 LPs that I had duplicates of or didn't listen to anymore. Works out for everyone. One big vinyl record trading session.
  17. It probably has to do more with the musical tastes of the forum members then the members themselves. For me, VC is more punk, pop punk, emo, hardcore, indie, and other subgenres of rock. The SH forums are a good resource, but most topics relate to older artists, class rock, jazz, blues, etc. VMP was sort of the middle ground. Conversations about a little of each genre. Granted, I do visit all three forums to find information. This whole vinyl forum "clique" attitude is a bit ridiculous. I also much preferred the VMP forum's user interface. It was so simple to upload photos, which served to enhance a lot of conversations and threads. Whereas, VC requires you to use a third party website (e.g., Photobucket) then hyperlink to that within the forum to get a photo up. Not sure if that has since changed, but it was/is annoying and outdated
  18. Mac's novelty has worn off for me. All these slow songs are just so boring. He isn't an amazing songwriter, singer, or even a very talented instrumentalist. It'd be one thing if he could write some intricate layered guitar parts, or at least a technical piano/keyboard section, but it's all so remedial and he just makes it weird by pitch shifting the tape he records on. I dont know. I own all of his other material and am not eager to buy this latest release.
  19. I'm interested in a copy of Alkaline Trio - Self titled, Maybe I'll Catch Fire, and The Lawrence Arms Ghost Stories. I have no preference for variants, prefer a Near Mint colored vinyl copy. Also interested in Tuesday Freewheelin, if you have it. I'm not looking to spend a lot. What price can you offer on these titles?
  20. Dont use picture disc sleeves at all. Those thick plastic sleeves off-gas and will create a visible haze on the vinyl which will lead to surface noise. It happened to my copy of Fairlight by Com Truise. Put the picture disc in a normal poly lined paper sleeve and be done with it.
  21. Perfect rose mockup. Now will they actually look like that in hand?
