  1. I missed out on the pre-order for this thinking it wouldn't sell out (oops!) but luckily found a copy at a local store last week. I gotta say: it sounds fucking fantastic! The three set LP is a bit annoying IMO (because of all the flipping) but I like that they kept all the artwork for each separate EP. Some of these tracks are Mogwai's best, it's so nice to finally have them in my collection. The magical chaos of Christmas Steps playing during the first big snowfall is what it's all about.
  2. 2023??? I know, I know...but it's still crazy to see. I bought one of the last 5 purple copies from their Bandcamp a year or two ago, and I'm so glad I did! It's one of my favourites. I wonder how different the remaster sounds?
  3. Just saw the news and heard the lead single, it's surprisingly not bad! From their webstore: "Alpha Games was conceived on the road, playing in front of amazing crowds on our last tour and then brought to life with the fire and the frustrations of 2020,” says Kele Okereke on Bloc Party’s first new album in seven years. The first Bloc Party album written and recorded as this four piece; adding the musicality of Justin Harris (bass) and the unbridled energy and power of Louise Bartle on the drums to capture the spark of their live shows and to deliver the most exciting Bloc Party album yet." Official Bloc Party store pre-orders: https://blocparty.shop.musictoday.com/ Standard black and a black/red split exclusive. https://pitchfork.com/news/bloc-party-announce-new-album-alpha-games-share-new-song-listen/ "Traps" video here:
  4. Just received my copy from ANOST this afternoon. Spinning it now and it's gorgeous as usual! Lots of key-clacking goodness, sweet melodies and just all around lovely tunes. A triumphant ending to this trilogy! I prefer this one to "Lost" but it still doesn't edge out Pino. Still great though. There's also one song that has a Christmas-y vibe to it, which is very fitting considering the first snow happened today This guy can do no wrong.

  6. The song Weed Pin came on my Weekly Recommended playlist a while ago and I liked it without ever going back to check more of their stuff out. This week another track came on after listening to Pup and I'm totally hooked now! Cheer is a banger through and through - and these two new singles are great. There's so many variants of this though! Bullmoose's descriptive of "collectable properties" is hilarious, too. Gotta collect em all!
  7. The sky-blue S/T arrived today (hooray perks of living in the same city as their distro) and it looks quite nice. But the real exciting part is how it sounds! It's like I'm 12 again. The old mastering just feels right to me. If you were at all disappointed with the re-mastered version, this copy will definitely make you happy! I was a bit afraid after taking it out because I noticed a cluster of tiiiny indents/almost punctures? halfway through side A, but it plays through just fine somehow. Phew!
  8. Thanks! I already have Crisis, Watch Out! and Old Crows but was just really excited about getting the original mixes on the S/T Side note, what a dick move to announce one "limited" pressing and then even more limited ones the next goddamn day. Oh well, it's a good thing Newbury doesn't ship here because it helps with the disappointment. EDIT: Ah shit, looks like they do ship here nowadays.
  9. Was in meetings all morning and forgot about this, but glad that my order on the AOF store went through just now! Took me a few tries but it worked.
  10. It's limited to 2,000 and available worldwide so expect this to sell out real quick. Stoked on the original master though! DA coming through!
  11. I found a copy of Are You Driving Me Crazy? at a local chain shop a few years ago and it was like $9. I bought it for the album art alone, and it seemed like an intriguing record. What a great surprise that turned out to be! The drums on that record are so good. I'll have to give the rest of the discography a shot.
  12. Anyone know if these are the remasters from 2016 or the original mixes? I have the 2014 represses and I'd like to finally get the original mixes on wax. There are some key parts missing from the self-titled!
  13. This line is about as old as the albums. Who wrote this?! Also...$47 to ship via USPS? My head hurts. Self-titled look gorgeous, though.
  14. Hyped for this but Spring 2022 seems crazy. Especially after Topshelf originally planned for the toe represses mid-July 2021, and now they're saying October/November without any heads up to people who placed an order.
  15. Just FYI, the band announced on IG that there will be a US/Can/Mex release of this out on Friday.
  16. Hell yeah! I've been waiting for this news ever since I gave this a first listen. What an awesome EP (album)! Don't care for all the fifth wave discourse that followed, but this record is great. The harmonica is such a good touch, same with the sprinkling of horns. Picked up an orange copy since shipping was cheaper. Thanks for this!
  17. Forgot I ordered this and the funfetti variant showed up today! It's a pretty nice variant but it's definitely more of a splatter than "sprinkles" of colour as originally advertised. It sounds great but my copy is warped as hell. My cartridge is so close to hitting this record, it's making me nervous. Still, overall a nice package considering the price. The zine is a nice touch, and I like all the little insides scoops. There's some fun Canadian connections in it too - was surprised to see a photo of the band in Montreal with David Mitchell from Gulfer! Also, surprise Nardwuar! Anyway, happy birthday Ratboys.
  18. Damn, I knew I shouldn't have splurged on an OG last year. Thought they lost the plates for this in the Universal Music fire in London, and figured a re-press wouldn't see the light of day considering this band just disappeared. Good news for people who don't own a copy though!
  19. Another splatter for the Dogleg collection, fuck yeah! The vinyl bundle was such a great deal too - good value for those who missed out on the first pressings of Melee.
  20. Aw man, I guess I did get a dud. The rest of the sides sound phenomenal btw - which is why I thought I was hearing wrong at first. Tested it out on another table and it does the same thing But yeah, amazing accomplishment for post-rock AND an indie label with two employees (Stuart thanked them both in the IG post on Friday, haha)!
  21. Pretty bummed. I finally picked up my reserve copy (the indie yellow) of this from a local shop and Side A seems to be off-pitch. The notes drone and sound way off compared to the digital version I've heard. My tonearm is clearly moving side to side as it tracks, so I'm thinking this is an off-centre pressing issue. Has anyone had this problem with their yellow copy?!
  22. I loved Hypnic Jerks but going to wait it out a bit before placing a pre-order! Lead single is a bit too much, not a huge fan of the heavy bits. Beautiful cover art though.
  23. Wow. I love it even more now! Hilarious anecdote. Thank you for this
