  1. I've e-mailed Port Merch to ask about this. "Original handmade" really suggests unique drawings (and on the EU shop, "handmade" is even italicized), and they probably should be for what shakes out to roughly a $75 premium over buying the LP + prints and the tote. It becomes much less interesting if it's just a signed print. In any case, if their online inventory for the US shop is accurate, they aren't selling through many of these bundles. I could cart 117 yesterday, and 114 today.
  2. Repress is back in stock for those still looking: https://merch.ambientinks.com/collections/sylvanesso/products/echo-mountain-sessions-lp-1
  3. Green and red options out of the UK too. https://www.recordstore.co.uk/recordstore/recordstore/Local-Valley-Limited-Edition-Translucent-Green-Vinyl-LP/6Y910000000 https://www.recordstore.co.uk/recordstore/recordstore/Local-Valley-Recordstore-Exclusive-Translucent-Red-Vinyl-LP-Signed-Art-Print/6Y9M0000000 Red seems to be different than the Brooklyn Vegan variant somehow (maybe translucent vs. opaque), and /1000 with a signed print. Green seems to be UK indies.
  4. US lists here: With pictures: https://www.roughtrade.com/us/record-store-day-2021-june-12th https://www.roughtrade.com/us/record-store-day-2021-july-17th With quantities (and faster to scroll through): https://recordstoreday.com/PromotionalEvent/580 Kinda meh for me, but definitely Life Aquatic and maybe Beastie Boys.
  5. Was refreshing and got a spit at 10:13am ET. Keep trying!
  6. At least a portion of the sales of the signed copies is going to their crew fund. The premium bothers me a little less since it's for a good cause. The LP does seem like an afterthought designed to sell the book. I bought it, but mainly because I was at one of those Forest Hills shows. It would've been really nice (and easier to justify the cost) if it was the book plus a 3LP or 4LP box set.
  7. It’s a shot of the top of the bleachers at Forest Hills Stadium. But if you’re asking about this as an aesthetic choice, then yeah, dunno.
  8. Not candy, but I got a tea bag from Resident with my latest order. Very English...
  9. In my experience, I would recommend storing them completely separately (which I do for any that have unique prints, colors, shapes, etc.) or else throwing them out (after carefully peeling off or cutting out any stickers, if you wish to keep them). When I scrubbed my collection to get rid of these sleeves a few years ago, I found that jackets stored in them stank like plasticky chemicals, and regular poly sleeves on records adjacent to them had weakened/rippled. And most of these were relatively recent releases (e.g. Mars Volta), so we’re not just talking about old ones from the 80s. Everyt
  10. Just so you’re using the right terminology—the cantilever is part of the stylus, which is part of the cartridge, which attaches to the tonearm. The cantilever is the tiny metal arm that extends down from the cartridge to the record surface. On the tip of the cantilever is the needle, which actually contacts the record surface. The cantilever is suspended, allowing it to move up and down. As others have mentioned, your tracking force weight is probably too high (i.e. counterweight is too low), causing too much downward force at the cartridge-end of the tonearm and the
  11. Use code 6APCYK for 15% at Barsuk. Brings this just under $17 shipped.
  12. For those who don’t follow the score/soundtrack thread, and also completely missed that this got repressed in November: https://store.nin.com/products/the-social-network-vinyl There are some retail copies on Discogs with slightly better pricing. Many online retailers are out of stock or backordered, though, so maybe don’t sleep on it (though no idea if the NIN folks reliably keep these Definitive Editions open).
  13. For anyone else who completely missed that The Social Network got repressed in November: https://store.nin.com/products/the-social-network-vinyl There are some retail copies on Discogs with slightly better pricing. Many online retailers are out of stock or backordered, though, so maybe don’t sleep on it (though no idea if the NIN folks reliably keep these Definitive Editions open).
  14. I didn’t get one from Blood, but their US shipping on a single LP is £15. So prices between the two are basically the same in USD assuming Blood wasn’t discounting VAT. Milk works out to roughly US$45 shipped with the small 10% discount from email signup.
