  1. Oh i'm well into Discogs but I'm very bad at keeping track of everything I have. I keep telling myself that someday I'll go through my stuff one by one and add it, but that day never comes haha. Too busy with the band. never any free weekends.
  2. i never knew about these records so I'm so psyched to be able to get them. Such a vast, vast different sound than the Maserati that I know and love. I can see all your points about the sound change, they're definitely more dance heavy now but i love that stuff too so I'm cool. I imagine its like the people who got turned off by Isis who hopped on during Mosquito Control or Celestial and couldn't swallow the clean direction after Panopticon.
  3. this is really nice, i like it. Now someone sell me a copy of Grivo - "Elude"
  4. man these old tracks are so good. Love this band. Can't remember if i have Oshin yet or not haha, ooof. Is that how you know you have too many records?
  5. I'm with you on EIP being too busy sometimes. I enjoy it, but I enjoy Effloresce and Frames much, much, much more. There's more of a balance of calm to chaos on those, I guess. EIP is a lot of chaos. I have originals of all full lengths, and I have the remaster of Effloresce too. They're both good. I would say that the remaster is a bit of an improvement, it just sounds sturdier. The original is still enjoyable, but it's like you just went from a 320mp3 to a wav. The 320 was definitely enjoyable, but the wav is just a bit better. On another note, does anybody know why Mike says this: "The creatively lauded and commercially maligned sophomore album by Oceansize has, unbelievably, earned its self a reissue!"
  6. no clue what they're planning really... but caught the new tune at the show a couple weeks ago. Really good. These kids are so great, they deserve the world. I hope they become as big as Caspian or bigger. Headlining tour of the UK next, good move!
  7. my girlfriend loves her. We're going to see her this July with Bleachers. I like that she does uptempo stuff with sorta spacey indie guitars. Really good stuff.
  8. i don't share this experience, I've had a few reviews help me to outstanding copies of certain albums. For instance, the Discogs reviews helped me track down the RTI pressing of Slowdive - S/T and man, that thing sounds gooooooood. the naysayers will always be louder than the supporters though, so i try to make a point to make a comment when a pressing is good.
  9. yo i've got 2 Mogwai tickets to Boston I need to unload, we have to travel last minute to Texas for my girlfriend's family, her brother is graduating with honors and we can't make the actual graduation so we're going for this. $60 and they're yours. was $71.
  10. seeing them next month! i'm sure it'll be great
  11. been spinning them in my car all week. Aurora is a fucking titan. Holy cow this album. Hush is good too, but it's different. The title makes a lot of sense, it's a lot more subdued than Aurora is, which is cool, but I'm not sure I want not-rocking from Slow Crush to be their main delivery style. Gonna keep giving it time because it's obviously not bad, I just really like the in-your-face energy of Aurora.
  12. Finally got my clear/gold cleaned and it's still noisy as shit and scratched to hell, AND it has a chunk missing from the edge lol. This is hilariously bad. I can cut my sandwiches with how sharp the edges are to this, and I could dig a hole with the area missing the chunk! The remaster does suit some songs, but I picked up a couple copies of the lauded Trust No One pressing from Sweden, and yeah... that's the fucking sound right there. That's Oceanic.
  13. that's how you do it! That Hubris is so sick. Anybody who loves Jakob needs that. Seriously good worship. new pressings for I Hear Sirens and finally the first album on vinyl!
  14. Don't hold your breath. I share your sentiment, but I wouldn't expect anything. Maybe someday. None of the band members live in the same cities or states haha. Especially with Shy, Low already cranking out the follow-up to Snake. Dude you buy both!!! Unless you're meaning the "Stella Mori" represses, but even then... get both! I'm so happy they finally pressed the first full-length. I love old I Hear Sirens.
