  1. I'm not sure when this happened, but it looks like Secretly Canadian has quietly repressed all 3 Richard Swift albums, and also put up a preorder for the Ground Trouble Jaw & Walt Wolfman EPs combined on one 12". This stuff was all out of print and went for $30+ regularly, so these are much-needed reissues. https://www.secretlystore.com/store/richard-swift?page=1 https://www.secretlystore.com/ground-trouble-jaw-walt-wolfman-richard-swift
  2. It sounds to me (and this is probably why people are reacting so strongly) like you're looking to get into the speculative vinyl market, and I've gotta say beyond the ick factor of straight-up asking which records will be out of print soonest, it's just not a great idea in general. Collecting "limited" records for their "value" is a big gamble, and unless you're already knowledgeable and immersed in the hobby, the odds are good that you'll end up stuck with a bunch of records you don't want that you'll eventually dump for a loss. If you want to make easy money flipping stuff, there are probably safer bets out there. Now, if you're asking because you just want to own something, anything, as long as it's limited: I would honestly just take a step back and ask whether possessing rare items will actually make you happy, or if you're just passively following messages you (and all of us! since birth!) are receiving from our western capitalist society that are telling you that consumption is the highest form of cultural participation. Maybe just think about what music connects with you, and seek out a copy of that music on a format that you think is cool. Some of my favorite and most treasured records are monetarily worthless, yet they bring me more joy than records worth $100+ that I bought to fill out a collection.
  3. I'm not gonna buy an LP of it, but this is a really well done chiptune arrangement. The love for and familiarity with the source material is evident. So uh, good job
  4. Same! But it stresses me out that it's an RSD exclusive release, limited to such a small amount considering the heavily established demand! There are fewer copies being pressed of this (untouchable classic, a $300 record all day) than of the RSD-First reissue of Mickey Mouse Disco (a worthless bullshit dollar bin filler, NM copies for $2.99 on Discogs)!
  5. Wonder why the pressing is so small. The Silver re-reissue sold through 500 copies in about a month, and that thing was like 30 bucks.
  6. More cool shyt: As Cities Burn - Come Now Sleep (1st press clear /700, 1 decent-sized corner bend) $12 Delay - Plain Language $5 Diamond Youth - Don't Lose Your Cool (red /200) $10 Diamond Youth - Orange (translucent orange /330) $10 Dinosaur Jr. - You're Living All Over Me (2011 Jagjaguwar reissue) $10 Johnny Cash - The Lure of the Grand Canyon (2011 reissue) $8 toe - Hear You (180g black /248 - 1 corner crease) $10
  7. This thing went up at midnight and sold out in under an hour. This is a thread for availability updates (should they ever occur) and Jack Sjunior discussion https://www.newburycomics.com/products/comedy_bang_bang-creak_slam_sit_the_jack_sjunior_brian_pieces_saga_exclusive_2lp?variant=21573489721449
  8. New album coming out in April on Mama Bird Recording Co. No other real info other than a new song, and judging by the credits, it'll be an acoustic-only album. https://tunes.mamabirdrecordingco.com/album/in-the-shape-of-a-storm
  9. My clear copy sounds great. I always avoid the Pirates Press splatters, I've never owned one that didn't sound subpar, although I've heard that a deep cleaning will address some of that. That said, I do have an Early Bird edition on the way that I had preordered through Bandcamp and never bothered to cancel. This album is amazing, definitely up there with Bazan's best work. And I say that as a lifelong fan.
  10. This whole show is now on Netflix if you want a preview. Just gotta find an extra 2 ½ hours to watch it... Bruce's stage banter is half the fun of seeing him live - Exhibit A:
  11. The original pressing always struck me as kind of lame - a single pocket with no insert, especially compared with the CD which is easily the coolest packaging I have ever owned. That said, I probably won't upgrade to the new pressing, but I would've been all in for a big dumb $80 package that recreated the CD packaging in some way.
  12. RSD version is red, and it seems a lot of places have leftovers online for around $16.
  13. This was a Black Friday "RSD First" release and is now available from Rosie directly. Red (/1000) or black vinyl. If you like Sufjan's first Christmas box set, or soft earnest "nice" music like The Innocence Mission, Denison Witmer, Iron & Wine etc., this is the Christmas album for you. https://rosiethomas.bandcamp.com/album/a-very-rosie-christmas
  14. It's an "RSD First" release, it'll get a wider release at some point. Plus with 3500 pressed, there will more than likely be copies that go up tonight after stores close.
