  1. There’s a good chance Dawg is in his early 70s and has no idea how the vinyl game works. Proceed with caution.
  2. Between this and that 7/26 teaser for PSOTY (single? Album announcement? Pre-order?) I feel like you and I are at peak levels of shared post-rock hype, haha.
  3. In the absolute heat of a moment, sure. But it usually passes after some time and reflection, for most folks. But surely you’re not comparing the fleeting fantasy of killing someone to taking the necessary steps and efforts to actually go through with it. Because that would be a really moronic comparison to draw and I know you wouldn’t do that.
  4. I hear you on that. But the good news is that the instrumental versions aren’t just the songs we have now with Saint’s vocals plucked out of them. They’re reworked and revised a bit to compensate for the lack of vocals, which should keep them from feeling hollow. I’m not expecting a 10/10 Tycho album for the ages but I think it’ll probably resonate more with the Tycho sound we’re used to.
  5. Agreed on all fronts, more or less. I don’t hate Weather but I’m also not going to throw it on whenever I’m in a Tycho mood, because it doesn’t satisfy the same itch that prior Tycho albums scratch for me. It really could be the black sheep in their discography, though — the huge art departure ties in with the direction of their sound. It’d be cool if the instrumental version has a reworked cover that’s a lot more minimal and comparable to prior album art. In a previous post I said that I really, really enjoy the closing (title) track on Weather. It sounds like “classic” Tycho at the top of their game. Apparently Scott has indicated that the band’s next record will follow that sound, so I’m pretty pumped about that. Back to their roots.
  6. That variant is kinda’ dope though. Seems like a nice fit with the album art too. Are you just miffed that it’s not /500 or something?
  7. I imagine it went down something like this. ETR: Hey Andy can we press Get Wet and overcharge for gimmicky vinyl variants sourced from CD? AWK: I’d prefer you didn’t. ETR: Well, too bad. We do what we like and we like what we do. AWK: Fair enough.
  8. I think it breaks out to about $23 PPD per album. Not counting the box they’re housed in, signatures, exclusive variants, and all those bells and whistles. Easily justifiable. Some of the albums hadn’t received a colored press either, up until now, so that’s icing on the cake.
  9. I used some Paypal funds to offset the total cost of the box, and they were taken / depleted immediately. (For what that’s worth.)
  10. To embed Youtube videos, just copy and paste the URL directly, hit Enter / Return, and wait a second. The forums should do all the legwork for you.
  11. Cheapest California shipping is actually $20.64 for me. That’s magnificent.
  12. Someone somewhere decided it would be a good idea to release an expanded version of it.
