  1. yo i don't know if you guys are paying attention but Post. Recordings has some sick, sick stuff available. I just picked up both variants of I Hear Sirens - Beneath the Sky, but they've got The Introvert - Carry the Bomb, Carry the Power and that album is awesome. It's so different but i love it. Almost like ambient synthwave mixed with S/T's programmed drum ideas. https://www.postrecordings.com/products/the-introvert-carry-the-bomb-carry-the-power-lp Also, IN EXCELSIS BY TEOTO ON VINYL FINALLY!!!! I'm very proud to say that I was sort of the genesis of that, linking the band to my buddy who works for Post. It sounds ***INCREDIBLE***. The re-recorded On Floating is *so* good. you must check it out. https://www.postrecordings.com/products/the-end-of-the-ocean-in-excelsis-lp
  2. Their set at Dunk was fucking mindblowing. The lights, and the sound... it was so much. I was a bit too tired to really appreciate it all but man, those climax moments during that set were BONKERS. I can't even fathom how they're going to fit on the St. Vitus stage? it's like 20 feet wide. The Dunk stage had to be 100 and they filled it. I'll probably come haha
  3. their live set at Dunk was truly tremendous. You think they're good on record.... mannnnnn you don't even know haha. It was something else. uhhhhhhhhh that's a bold statement. i'm curious...
  4. Man. You guys need to go to Dunk!. Like, holy crap. Bruit.... Hubris... Year of No Light... Of the Vine... OUTLANDER!!!!!!!! I can't stress how good Outlander was. If you think they are great on record, they absolutely utterly DESTROY on stage. Their setlist was Threadbare, Return, Sinking, Sundowning. 3 Valium tracks ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ Like, fuck dude. It's so doable too! It's in Ghent now, so you just fly into Brussels, take ONE TRAIN, and then you're there. You get off at Gent - St. Pieters station, and take the tram for 10 mins into the center of the city, and you are 5 mins walking from everything. It's so ridiculously easy. I am not rich, and I don't make a ton of money, and we were able to do it again this year. You guys can do this. You need to. please come see the magic once before you die
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. this is really nice, i like it. Now someone sell me a copy of Grivo - "Elude"
  8. 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?
  9. 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!"
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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!
  17. 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.
  18. Seems important: 10th anniversary of the debut Shy, Low album. Finally available on vinyl, 180g black from Post. Recordings. Comes with a few remixes, one of them courtesy of Holy Fawn. They only did 200 copies, so I'd move quickly, what with the volume that Pelagic moved of the new one. I love this album and still go back to it to this day. https://shylowmusic.bandcamp.com/album/shy-low https://www.postrecordings.com/products/shy-low-s-t-lp
  19. It finally happened! Pre-order Shy, Low's s/t album featuring 3 remixes (Digital only) and pressed to vinyl for the first time! This will be limited to 200 records on 180g Black Vinyl. Expected ship date will be May 2022. Move quickly, this will sell out. You should also pick up Driving Slow Motion, Tacoma Narrows Bridge Disaster, and Hubris. Only a few copies of all those remain, so act fast. They're awesome pressings too, I have them all. TNBD is one of the best sounding releases i have, it's fantastic. https://www.postrecordings.com/products/shy-low-s-t-lp https://shylowmusic.bandcamp.com/album/shy-low
  20. Man that's a whole other story i need to get into haha. I have so many tapes that need to be played, and I don't know what to get. Obviously old Nakamichi's but the dragons are fuck-ass expensive and everyone on the Hoffman forums says Ebay is full of scammers, so i don't even know what to do haha.
  21. i need to give a shoutout to Maybeshewill and The Robot Needs Home Collective label. I ordered 5 copies of the remastered "I Was Here For a Moment..." vinyl for myself and friends. First package shipped via Fedex disappeared. A second package sent via Fedex.... disappeared. Tracking shows they never even left the airport, so it seems someone is stealing. Now, we're on our 3rd shipment that was broken into 2 parcels to be sent via USPS. They've been super responsive and helpful through all this, via their shipping broker SHHHIP LTD or whatever they're called. Fedex can suck a tailpipe and die in a fire. Fuck them.
  22. just about every other record i get these days is complete dogshit. No QC, just pumping out poorly pressed garbage with tons of pressing erros. Lately it's scratches in one channel, presumably from a rushed press that didn't mold to the plate completely. It's stupid. why is it so hard to make things good?
