  1. Got some news that they're releasing the second pressing today - fingers crossed!
  2. Well shit, this is cool. Hopefully I can get my hands on a copy - just 300 would be a tease.
  3. Snagged a blue/green copy from Fatbeats - total impulse buy but I'm into it. https://www.fatbeats.com/products/v-a-the-rick-and-morty-soundtrack-2xlp-green-blue-vinyl
  4. Love Bazan, love Now, Now - this is a great little cover. Snagged a copy of the split.

    PO: TTNG - Self-Titled Repress

    Just received this in the mail today and it looks and sounds great. The record is a nice color for the cover art, and the jacket arrived in surprisingly good shape for the thin cardboard packaging. Edit: Two small (but loud) pops halfway through the second track

    Albums That Should Be Pressed on Vinyl

    Apologies for any repeats, really just a personal wishlist ATM: Blithe Field - Beautiful Wave '74 I Can Make A Mess Like Nobody's Business - S/T The Fall of Troy - Ghostship Demos
  7. Just excited to get my name into the pre-order, but at 10k copies I'm sure I'll have the opportunity to buy one from them as well.
  8. Pre-ordered with haste, and I'm a fan of the color combo. I'd much rather buy this direct from Asthmatic Kitty than through a site like SSD, but psyched nonetheless.

    Thanks, I snagged a copy from someone on the boards earlier this week. Updating post now.

    Is this sibilance?

    Sounds like the definition of sibilance e to me, and it is definitely not something you have to just "live with". First I would examine the stylus and make sure it is still contacting the record in a proper vertical position. Assuming all is good, it's time to take that trusty protractor out and realign the cartridge - if you don't have one I'd suggest getting one otherwise you'll have this trial and error phase every time you change out the cart/stylus. Also, make sure to take the anti-skate adjustment off while aligning or you'll continue to have skating parties https://www.amazon.com/Turntable-Phonograph-Cartridge-Alignment-Protractor/dp/B079ZBLJ4M/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1530014148&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=turntable+protractor&psc=1

    PO NOW: Foxing - Nearer My God

    Grabbed a bone white real fast, I was a big fan of both Albatross and Dealer so I have high hopes. I'm disappointed that I'll be out of town when they come through my neck of the Northeast, but I've seen these guys twice before and they put on an incredible show - see them if you have the chance.

    I wasn't aware of that, I appreciate the heads up!
