  1. oh god there are variants! You are killing me Juan I didn't even need the white vinyl copy I got last month. This is not necessary to own on vinyl, but it's cool if you are a fanboy like me, it's just excerpts from the prime christmas special
  2. If anyone needs the indie variant https://vinylren.com/seahaven-halo-of-hurt-vinyl-lp/, we still have 2 copies left. It's a pretty good record, I'm not sure if I like it more than Reverie Lagoon but that has been in regular rotation since release and this is my first spin. I will say it's probably one of the least photogenic variants I've ever seen. It looks black if you try to take a picture, and even from a few feet away.
  3. As cool as that looks, that's an expensive ass candle. I think I'll stick with the indie exclusive. Looks like my distro is going to fill my 3 copies I ordered, so one is going home with me but there will be 2 extras if anyone has no luck finding one locally
  4. I got my copy today and it was worth the wait. Obviously not an audiophile release but Ryan Smith did a great job as always. It's a single pocket jacket with a 2 sided insert. Disc 1 is standard black Disc 2 is a Blue/Black Marble. Both discs were flat but off center. Disc 2 was not as bad but it was a tight squeeze on to the spindle on disc 1. This is a great way to get all their stuff in one purchase (minus live and studio outtakes). I'd highly recommend ordering a copy if you have not done so already. There have been some really great reissues this year and this up there as one of my favori
  5. It does sound pretty good compared to the last 2 which were really muddy even for shoegaze. I still think GoE is the best sounding Nothing record, that Heba Kadry mastering is wonderful.
  6. As nostalgic as I am for this album I think I'll pass for now, I'd be shocked if this sold out and was going for a high secondary price later. I'll wait for an inevitable sale or secondary market buy down the line. Great record though one of the last bands I remember with a keytar
  7. Whoops my dumbass sliced the obi and the cover opening up the shrink. Good thing I'm not trying to resell. The indie exclusive kind of came out cool, not exactly like the mock up but to be expected, I do not have any other variants like this. Spinning DOTBT while it dries.
  8. I got the ALS AAA myself yesterday, played it twice already. It was the best I've heard the album, I have not heard an original stereo but I have heard an original mono. I highly recommend anyone who enjoys this album to pick up a copy, not sure how many more times this is going to get cut from tape.
  9. The unauthorized releases are the rights holders generally, put up a Metallica boot it's going to get taken down, pick an artist who doesn't care or have the money to patrol ebay and they don't get policed.
  10. Looking forward to this, going to grab the indie variant at release. I could use some new Seahaven right about now.
  11. What a way to get exposed to a ton of old music even if there are less than ideal copies it's a great way to get acquired with some music you may not have heard otherwise. Hell of a score unless it's all polka
  12. I found them to be very inspiring in their banter on stage when I saw them both in store and that evening at a local venue. They all just had great attitudes, and I'm glad they still have Max playing guitar, I had some great conversations, his eyes lit up when I told him the venue had a leslie amp they could plug into. That evening I saw 4 people carrying that monster out onto the stage and they sounded fantastic. If you want to see their in store, I guess it's been 2 years my how time flies
  13. I gotta check out the War & Treaty, truly amazing humans so full of love. They played my record store last year and introduced themselves with big embracing hugs. I have a signed CD Healing Tide, they took it literal when my coworkers told them to sign it "to the guy behind the register". Glad they are getting some traction and have signed with Rounder for their new album.
  14. ooh been wanting a copy for a long time, I hate half and half variants so I might just pick this up at retail in December, but I'm tempted. Birth Of Violence is one of the best sounding new releases from the last decade to my ears, the dynamics are incredible and the vinyl is dead quiet
