  1. Oh damn it, you convinced me. I was holding off as well because I have the box set, but I can double dip for this record.
  2. Think the box set will be available from one of the US stores? I’ll probably just get that version, but it’d be nice to save a bit on shipping.
  3. I haven’t listened to the second LP yet, but my first LP plays great with no skips.
  4. I really like TheFutureEmbrace as well. I’ve never gotten around to listening to Zwan for some reason, but I listened to that solo album so much when it came out.
  5. Yeah. I had heard as well that, since Aaron is already teaching, that these last two tours were going to have to fall within his breaks from school. So, a short Brother, Sister tour during winter break, then the full US farewell tour during summer break.
  6. Yeah, it's the same price as the 2LP, so I also assumed that was a mistake.
  7. I would guess this is the short Brother, Sister tour this winter. I think I read somewhere the full final farewell tour will be next summer.
  8. Stoked for this! Their only album that I own is the live one, so I’m happy I’ll get to pick up the rest.
  9. Yeah, same. I was surprised when I opened it up, then looked back through email confirmations to see if I had known it was going to he signed, but couldn’t find anything about it. Pretty cool surprise.
  10. I must be really out of the loop in this genre because I hadn’t heard of any of these bands, but I'm really digging all of them. Keep the recommendations coming!
  11. I just ordered it from https://kida-mnesia.com/ with it shipping to the US.
  12. Huh, if I'm reading things right, does the cassette tape version include extra songs? It specifically mentions 5 b-sides where none of the others phrase it that way. If you click on the hyperlinked portion of the description of the cassette, it shows 5 songs that are in addition to the songs on Kid Amnesia. Kinetic Fast-Track Cuttooth The Amazing Sounds of Orgy Trans-Atlantic Drawl
  13. Shipping was only $3.62 from Temporary Residence’s website. Edit: link https://www.temporaryresidence.com/products/trr369
  14. As someone who wasn’t really familiar with the Killers outside of their singles, it definitely peaked my interests to hear about the subject matter and writing of this album. Growing up in a small Mormon town in Utah (20 minutes away from Nephi, the small town this album was written about), I definitely have some shared experiences with the album. I’ve only listened to it a couples of times, but I like it quite a bit. There are at least one or two songs, like Vega mentioned above, where it feels like Brandon Flowers is leaning pretty heavily into his Springsteen influences, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing to me. I’ll have to get around to checking out their other albums.
