  1. Try an isopropyl alcohol solution on a cotton ball or soft cloth, ideally diluted with distilled water and rinsed with the same when you’re done. Start with maybe 4 parts water, 1 part alcohol, and keep upping the alcohol until it is effective. Note that most CD repair fluids are mild abrasives that work by buffing out scratches on CDs. What you are seeing on the 45 might be fine scratches rather than residue, and nothing will fix that.
  2. Sloan is splitting their "B Sides Win" collection into multiple volumes for a vinyl release. I personally would've preferred a 3LP or box set to cover it all in one shot, but oh well. Volume 1 is currently in a "secret" preorder. 1200 copies on blue vinyl. $18.99 (shipping to the US is $7.99). https://shop.kt8merch.com/products/sloan-b-sides
  3. FWIW, my copy from VMP showed up just fine, packaged like lots of other retailers package records. Does VMP just attract people who don’t buy a lot of records? There’s nothing better or worse about VMP shipping compared with most anyone else, as far as I can tell. If their shipments suffer from particularly bad seam splits, maybe the problem is someone throwing the boxes around at their local USPS distribution center.
  4. Limited pressing on matching beige colored vinyl. Track list is the one from the second pressing of the CD. No word on whether the hidden track is included. https://rilokileyrkives.bandcamp.com/album/rilo-kiley
  5. If you only tried through the Loma Vista shop, you could try here instead: https://merch.ambientinks.com/collections/sylvanesso
  6. You can get a 15% discount on preorders through their web shop for the next three days with code “WITH15”. There is also an indie variant on “sky blue opaque”: https://craft-n-vinyl.com/UPC/888072196407 http://store.landlockedmusic.com/product/sylvan-esso-free-love
  7. Makes me feel a bit better. My copy of the red Boygenius shipped the same day and followed the Punisher tracking to Frankfurt, then stopped. Boygenius tracked through the US and was delivered today. Annoying situation but fingers crossed.
  8. Anyone else have a JPC package that hasn’t been updated since Frankfurt a week ago?
  9. https://sufjanstevens.bandcamp.com/album/america The 12” will be gone very very soon.
  10. I just got shipping confirmation from JPC. It’s being sent with DHL. I ordered with standard shipping, so they may be upgrading US orders to get them out the door.
  11. The red/teal German pressing is now available on JPC, which has much cheaper shipping to the US than HHV: https://www.jpc.de/jpcng/poprock/detail/-/art/bright-eyes-down-in-the-weeds-where-the-world-once-was/hnum/9905119
  12. Can someone confirm that any sign-up for the SS between now and the end of July will get the Bright Eyes LP (with a sign-up in June starting with Molina and a sign-up in July starting with BE)?
  13. It’s yellow and, at 1500 copies, presumably more limited. These aren’t really bundles—just LPs housed in a book. KRS is offering a number of egregiously priced bundles that add on signed photo prints (in varying quantities and sizes depending on just how stupid the price gets) and, if you really have money to burn, a certificate of authenticity with the most expensive bundle. 🙄 I’ll risk the inauthenticity of a copy from Bullmoose.
  14. Obviously now is the time more than ever to be supporting local shops if possible, but if you need to order from Amazon, this is now up at $28 with preorder price guarantee.
  15. It was available in the Vault novelties store a while back but sold out. It was priced at a premium—$20 or $30 IIRC.
