  2. Not sure about this one…same as Omnian? Claims “blue”, looks aqua. Claims custom artwork, looks the same. https://wearebraindead.com/collections/all/products/homeshake-under-the-weather-album?mc_cid=8eb9f763f2&mc_eid=ccc2b5a9e8
  3. Got the Matador splat today. Really nice pressing. Some really quiet passages, great guitar tone, good separation, relatively thick bass...hits hard. Some new sounds. Slightly over produced...give it to me raw. Some fun use of stereo. Tinge of 80’s/soft rock on some tracks.
  4. “Shipped” 12/4 (label said it shipped that week) Accepted 12/16 Last scanned 12/20 Arrived at local hub today! Miracles do happen.
  5. First set of songs...agree with the “more pop” sentiment. Turning point is tolerate it, no body, and happiness are very different, thankfully...more interesting to me.
  6. I've been thinking about when I was trying to be your friend I thought it was then But it wasn't It wasn't genuine I was just so furious But I couldn't show you 'Cause I know you And I know what you can do And I don't wanna war with you I won't afford it You get sore even when you win

  9. Great stuff. Crafty. She can do anything, and she does just about everything on this album. I found it a bit tiring to listen to, mainly because the drums were generally following the vocals. It’s like Tune-Yards, but way more matured. Two memorable spots: Shameika dropped out pre-chorus (2:10) and Ladies when talking about the dress the ex left behind. Can’t wait to listen again.
  10. Code 30OFF for 30% off site wide, including exclusives. https://thesoundofvinyl.us
  11. The most feels from across room distance scream, “He looks so pretty like a devil” in Cruel Summer. Hints of Neko Case in the verses of Lover. Nice album.
  12. Can’t. Stop. Listening. Finally have black vinyl in hand...minor bowl warp, slight needle drift, but wax is in good shape! Plucked the random vinyl hairs along the edge, cleaned, listening now. Punchy drums, outstanding bass tone, yummy piano/synths, possibly more mid/bass than Spotify. Quiet press so far, good separation. This album makes me want to stop everything, lay in the grass, stare at some trees, and drift off. Or, sand/waves...Oceanic, per p4k.
