  1. IMO, Silver & Gold is waaaay uneven. Sounds like it was a lot more fun to make than listen to. I own the boxset, and I don't even put Volume 7 on, as it pretty much goes back and forth between austere choral arrangements (which are amazing) and super goofy novelty songs like "I Am Santa's Helper (You Are Santa's Slave)". Volume 8 is pretty rough at times as well. I will say that it still contains some of his finest Christmas material, and the last two songs - Justice Delivers Its Death and Christmas Unicorn - are among his best songs ever, period. Songs for Christmas, on the other hand, is unimpeachably great from start to finish. Chronologically it goes from just before Michigan to the Illinois era, so he wasn't doing as much stuff with synths and computers, and it just suits the Christmas season better. And I love bleep bloopy Sufjan, but during Christmas I'd rather hear something more organic and unobtrusive.

    Low - "Double Negative"

    I'm local, so I preordered in person. Maybe try disabling adblock? That usually makes those kinds of problems go away for me.
  3. Can't believe no one made a thread for this. It comes out tomorrow and it fuckin rules. The Loser edition is sold out online, but there's another variant - clear with pink streaks - exclusive to Electric Fetus and available online here: https://www.electricfetus.com/UPC/098787125030/Low_Double-Negative They're also doing an in-store and signing at Electric Fetus tomorrow night. I'm going and I'm excited to see how this new material translates to live performance.
  4. Totally forgot that Saddle Creek has free shipping, instant preorder for me. Song sounds goooood The Saddle Creek color is nothing special, but it's better than glow-in-the-fuckin-dark, which should be relegated exclusively to Ghostbusters RSD singles for all eternity.
  5. Added a few things: '68 - In Humor and Sadness (1st pressing clear) Black Sea - Black Sea (members of Fugazi & Frodus) 10" Bridge and Tunnel - Indoor Voices (Brown) 10" MxPx - On the Cover (white 2x10") Of Sinking Ships - The Amarinthine Sea (Clear/Purple Split) This Moment in Black History - Midwesterncuttalistick This Moment in Black History - It Takes a Nation of Assholes to Hold Us Back [split] - Anathallo/Javelins - Entropy (Coke bottle) [split] - Anni Rossi/Whitman 10"

    Hot Water Music vinyl

    Maybe Epitaph will eventually press the albums they originally put out on CD? They’re pretty good at getting stuff back in print, considering the size of their catalog. But yeah, there are dozens of pressings of all the albums, they should be relatively easy to find secondhand.
  7. "early/mid aug 2018" https://www.smlxlvinyl.com/products/matthew-thiessen-the-earthquakes-climb-lp-preordersmlxl-vinyl-exclusive Comes with a download of the first single "Man of Stone", which is a pretty good song. A good amount darker and more ragged than the typical RK stuff of the last few years.
  8. Also here's Pedro's tour manager confirming that all the albums will be repressed:
  9. Ah fuck, looks like Undertow is getting their own color as well. Here's It's Hard to Find a Friend on... red vinyl? Shipping immediately. https://undertowstore.com/products/its-hard-to-find-a-friend-remastered-vinyl-re-issue?variant=12098166259838
  10. Also @tokimedo it may not be a bad idea to edit the title of this thread. Whole is proooobably never going to happen.
  11. These were apparently repressed on clear vinyl as an indie exclusive, as well as a standard black repress. Out last Friday. I can't seem to find any press release or anything, or any online retailers that carry all of them (not that I need to buy any of these records a 3rd/4th/5th time...) but they're out there.
