  1. Crazy how fast they're selling, honestly. Good for them, though, the album is killer and I made the mistake of waiting on the 2017 repress because I thought it would sit around. Didn't do it this time—got the black/blue w/white splat one.
  2. If anyone sees or finds a distro for this in the UK, please let me know. Shipping is prohibitively expensive for me but I do really want to own this. Essential band
  3. Not gonna lie, I was seriously considering buying the original first press splatter literally yesterday. Glad I waited. Finally a gatefold for this, too—picked up the /500 splatter.
  4. As someone who has absolutely loved everything Loma Prieta has put out before this album, I'm... not really into this. The heavy upbeat melodic nature of some of the songs (especially Dose, Symbios, the fast parts of Dreamlessnessless...) kind of ruins the mood of the whole thing, for me. Some particularly fast & upbeat parts remind me of something like Jeff Rosenstock, which is an unfortunate comparison considering that reeeeally is not the tone I would be looking for out of something like this. It feels like tonal whiplash from all their albums (this is absolutely not the evolution I had hoped for after Self Portrait), I don't really know. Oh well. I don't particularly feel like it's going to grow on me, either, which is disappointing.
  5. TC have a HELL of a lot of audacity to sell that for $65. Having the paper "jackets" also be the vinyl sleeves themselves essentially means the release did not come with a proper jacket at all. Just two cardstock 'inners' with embossing, in a PVC sleeve. (Though feel free to correct me on this, as I don't own this release. Just going by what I've seen in pictures.) They could have at least put them in a double-wide single-pocket proper jacket, right? Did they really not do that? I don't personally understand how embossing unprinted heavy cardstock and making a single-color print on a PVC sleeve would even remotely end up with a per-unit price of $65. Something must have went terribly wrong in the production process because I've seen releases much more lavish than this (lol) go for the same price.
  6. Man... I would love to own this record, but €40 + shipping for the LP is too much for me. I do wish SPR would chill with the pricing on their records. It's way out of hand.
  7. Very happy for a repress. Got the orange one. Not sure exactly what's up with shipping to the UK (it was a little awkward to check out) but managed to do so for a decent price. One of the best of its kind... whether one describes it as 'emocore', 'proto-screamo / screamo', 'post-hardcore' etc... it's legendary.
  8. Really looking forward to new music, have been aching to hear another full-length.
  9. Man, all of these anniversary editions they're doing really reminds me of better days. A big lot of the new stuff they have released the past years is not very good.
  10. Now if only the new Tim Hecker album were as reasonably priced here in the UK as it is in the US... £35 is double the US price. Highway robbery, I tell you!
  11. Snagged the represses a couple days back—crossing my fingers the recent repress campaign leads to a new album sometime this year. Also would love to see a new Demdike Stare LP soon.
  12. They should bother sending some repress copies to the UK. It's still impossible to find a copy over here. If anyone sees a listing for this in the UK that isn't stupid expensive please show me, I will be quite happy.
  13. Interesting—there's copies (pics on Instagram and Discogs) which have it spelled correctly (as well as a few pics of said incorrect spelling on IG)... wonder how that happened. For example: Incorrect: https://www.instagram.com/p/CpiTJ46u9z7/ Correct: https://www.instagram.com/p/CpdDL9hJEQd/ "Rare typo version for sale $150 NM-!!"
  14. I don't understand it at all, personally. They reissued You Fail Me Redux on the cloudy clear and people are already mixing up it with the F&F listing so much that the F&F listing on Discogs is overrun by them.
  15. Glad the new single is actually screaming and not the awful not-even-shouting hollering that they did on their comeback LP (and on Presents, which they really should re-record with proper screaming). Hope the whole album maintains that. With that said, instrumentals are still kinda weak though. Time will tell if the whole album maintains good energy.
  16. My copy of We Are The Romans sounds brilliant, and I have been having a lot of frustration revolving around a glut of poor vinyl pressings elsewhere recently (so I have been hyper-aware of when my records have surface noise/popping). I can confidently say that my copy (blue/black merge), at least, has no issues.
  17. Very excited for this. I expect the orange variants will have the fourth cover (and share it with the CD/digital? edit: orange has a fourth alt cover different from the digital). I enjoy the anticipation of which versions will end up at UK retailers and absolutely love all the alt artworks.
  18. I'll be real I really don't think bands should be working with No Sleep considering all I've seen from them is headaches and delays for years, even since well before Covid. There's labels out there that feel like they'd be better than this. I'm not an insider so I'm sure there's plenty of (somewhat) reasonable reasons behind these things, but I don't think No Sleep have been a reliable label in a while. Just my two cents.
  19. Haven't looked around, but wondering—are there any UK preorders for coloured versions of this?
  20. Ugh, fuck this. The previous press is barely more expensive than that price point on the secondhand market. I have plenty of nostalgia for their old albums but this just screams milking it for every cent they're worth. They would sell out of normal cheaper presses just the same. I guess they're going to press the whole back catalogue like this which really sucks the life out of me.
  21. This is the dumbest thing and I wish this band would just regularly repress their stuff normally
  22. https://www.hellomerch.com/collections/botch?sort_by=created-descending https://evilgreed.net/collections/sargent-house/products/botch-we-are-the-romans-2xlp?variant=43634233508105 US and EU preorders up. Got the blue/black. Stoked on that colourway
  23. Any UK distro to speak of, or European? I've been looking/asking around but haven't found anything.
  24. Yea I was in for the /136 immediately. Single is fantastic. Really excited for this!
  25. Unfortunate that I didn't manage to scrounge up enough dosh before this album sold the entire membership stock out, hahah. Great LP, will probably pick up a copy on vinyl at some point but in no rush.
