    The Official 'Vinyl Me, Please' thread.

    VMP fans who live in Toronto, I just went into Antikka Records on Queen West b/w Ossington & Shaw for some free coffee and they had a bunch of VMP titles in-stock, including 3 copies of Cosmogramma. I asked the owner who said it's a perk of being the only place in the city to host VMP listening party every second Thursday of the month. Prices were, as you might imagine if you've browsed their stock, overpriced but 38 to 45CAD for AOTMs (less for others) before tax is what you would except for the exchange rate, plus you dodge the shipping charges & he said he could try to get special orders done upon request in case there's available VMP stock he doesn't have.

    Any comic book readers?

    If you're in the Annapolis area & you're a government employee: First, sorry abt what you're going through now. Second, Tom King the writer of Batman, Miracle Man & other non-DC comics is giving away hundreds of comped trades at Third Eye Comics (this) Saturday, January 19th at 11AM & he'll sign stuff. ID required. Deets in the link.

    Vaporwave Vinyl Releases

    Pressing in accordance with demand is the exact opposite of "arbitrary"; it's literally in accordance with a specific criteria. This is not challenging. Imagine Sub Pop pressing only /300 for its first 5 years. 100% Electronica doesn't have 1000+ releases so I'm not guessing you're exaggerating to make a point? And while 100%E has significantly upped their vinyl runs, granted, many other VW/future funk labels don't (Neoncity and 100+ being the main culprits). 100%E seems to under-press the S U R F I N G lp everytime so I'm not really frustrated at them because they have only one "runaway" release like that & their other vinyl (reissues) tend to sell out in weeks/days which is far more normal, granted. I'm more frustrated at the other two & a couple more labels (Yetee when they're releasing their own stuff).

    Vaporwave Vinyl Releases

    Nope, and "limited" is not the same as "will sell out in seconds because we like to leave money on the table because hype > customer satisfaction". Miss me with your stanning for artificial scarcity. Obvious bullshit is obviously bullshit.

    Vaporwave Vinyl Releases

    Editions that sell out in literally seconds due to artificial scarcity is always more ridiculous than fans bitching about not being logged into Bandcamp or Paypal when shit drops during weekdays or in the middle of the night & it's quite literally "blink & you'll miss it". Imagine record companies actually adjusting for demand rather than making their fans wait the better part of a year for a repress (which asshole flippers will double-dip on anyway), which also slows those record companies new release schedules some.
  6. Sucky news; great album, probably one of the most underrated in his entire catalogue.
  7. New Billow Observatory! III: Chroma/Countour. Released 7 Feb, 2019 and /300 on limited translucent blue vinyl. This is one of the Auburn Lull guys & a Manual/Ulrich Schnauss collaborator. http://billowobservatory.bandcamp.com/album/iii-chroma-contour-2?from=fanpub_fnb

    Official Newbury Comics Reissue Thread

    Um why post hyperlinks to their FBs rather than the NC links?

    Sleep - "Dopesmoker", Deluxe Reissue

    When I buy a Newbury variant, I know I'm splurging and I rationalize my buying decision on that basis. Tbh, it was the same with VMP considering the Canadian shipping overages plus the fact that they absolutely refused to give me any credits whatsoever for purchases or sponsoring another new user.

    Sleep - "Dopesmoker", Deluxe Reissue

    Wait there's no way YOU of all people actually typed that (I kid, I kid)

    Sleep - "Dopesmoker", Deluxe Reissue

    Snarky debates about the sublimely illogical justifications needed to tell yourself you need that 6th copy of Dopesmoker. The End Times are truly upon us.

    Marvel Cinematic Universe Thread

    New Captain Marvel trailer tonight, Avengers 4 trailer (probably a teaser) on Wednesday. I actually believe this round of rumours.

    I don't like music anymore

    Random suggestions: The Blue Nile, Magazine, Massive Attack. Best Cliff Martinez OST is Solaris IMO.

    PO: Nils Frahm - All Melody

    Likewise, but I'll wait for an in-store purchase. Maybe it'll be in stock by Boxing Day.
