  1. The fact that these won't require special turntables is a good move, but I still think this idea will crash and burn very quickly.
  2. I love the lyrics, the message, and the subtext of the video that somehow our fucking idiot president got elected on the idea that America wasn't great and winning on the votes of people who are far more pro-USA than me. By voting for Trump, all these dipshits were implying that they didn't like where the country was heading, but really they just didn't like that we had our first black president who was going to be followed by our first woman president. Soapbox nonsense done with, this song is very blah. Any energy these songs might have had has been overproduced out of them. This album has now been downgraded from "yay, new Frank Turner on vinyl" to "ok, maybe I'll still buy the digital" to "welp, guess I'm going to wait for a full album stream before I spend money on what is shaping up to be a huge disappointment."
  3. Heh, I recommended this band to a couple of friends and when I asked them what they thought, they said "Oh, you mean that new Menzingers record? Yeah, it's pretty good!" One of my friends said that if I'd just played SLS for him without telling him what band it was, he would have totally thought it was a new Menzingers album. I mean hey, there's far worse bands to emulate! And this album is definitely a contender for AOTY.
  4. Stoked on this, meant to post it the other day when I saw the PO go up. I thought for sure they were gonna call it a day after the last album came out and they barely toured on it. No single out yet, but here's an article on it... https://newnoisemagazine.com/elway-announce-new-album-for-the-sake-of-the-bit/
  5. Not only that, but who the hell in their right mind is selling Red Scare releases? Everything they put out is great, so the "rarity" of an album doesn't matter if I have no desire to sell it ever.
  6. I think the dude's got a pretty nasty ego problem, but wasn't one of the guys kicked out of the band for sexual assault allegations and another one just straight up quit in the middle of a show? Whatever the case, I'm kinda over this band. The first two EPs were great, the first LP was ok, and I think I only listened to the last album maybe two times. Acoustic Beach Slang is not a thing that I'll ever be interested in.
  7. It's different, but I like that new track. Still wavering on preordering this one.
  8. Compared to the $90 median price on Discogs for Cheating at Solitaire, it's a hell of a lot more reasonable. I bet the person that dropped $170 on it 4 months ago is kicking themselves. That said, I probably would only listen to these once or twice. So in that regard, yeah, $30 is unreasonable for me.
  9. It's a bummer, but I'm not really surprised. These dudes barely ever toured, and the last album didn't seem to get any attention. Even here, this thread just died after it came out. I liked the album fine, but it's no The Future Is Canceled. Here's a slightly longer message from their Facebook:
  10. To look at the poster, I'd think Minus The Bear is opening for The Coathangers, which would make it far more likely that I would go to the show so that I wouldn't be out too late on a weeknight.
  11. Welp, too bad they went the KRM route for this one. I'm happy to have a green copy coming my way and I'm happy knowing that some dipshit out there spent too much on a hoodie, a photo tee, a pin, and a patch just to get a blue copy. I'll be keeping this record forever.
  12. Why the fuck is the Seattle show on a Wednesday!? Uuuuuuuuugh.
  13. I prefer to think of it the other way around... I'm losing money by NOT getting some of these deals! This is great, and entirely too dangerous for my bank account right now.
  14. I might be willing to part with it, PM me an offer.
  15. I'd love to have this, but not for that price. This is a band I'd love to see a boxset from someday.
  16. Argh, I want this to go up for preorder already!!!
  17. I loved this album when it came out, but I now find Tim Armstrong's drawl more unlistenable than laughable.
  18. I use both, but Docs is my 100% up-to-date collection. I'm entering more and more stuff into Discogs as I get it, but it's highly unlikely that I'll ever go back through and enter my entire collection there.
  19. Lol, OWTH is absolutely in the same wheelhouse as AM! and HWM. If you haven't heard them, give them a try. They're one of my favorite bands. Double lol, those weren't bands, they were other labels. And yeah, they all got screwed, or at least had stories of other labels getting screwed.
  20. That's really disheartening, I always loved No Idea and own a pretty good chunk of their catalog. I guess this explains why they shut down their distro.
  21. 1. Agreed. 2. From what I can tell, only the first 5 soundtracks were released on Warner Sunset, the rest were on other labels. So probably a licensing thing. 3. Agreed again.
  22. Got this last night, spun it a couple of times, and it's an average Iron Chic record... which means it's one of the best records of the year! The cover on this thing is rad as hell too. The gold emboss details on the horns and teeth add a layer of creepiness to the artwork for sure.
