  1. I'm not so sure it's a limited repress. I know copies have run out at least once before and been replenished, and copies are starting to show up at third party sellers (there's about eight copies available through Amazon that are $18-22).
  2. These are starting to trickle in. Figured I’d post a few lists I’ve seen and we can have a thread where people can share their lists. I always find a couple gems from seeing other people’s lists (I’m still working on mine). https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2018/11/the-50-best-albums-of-2018.html https://www.stereogum.com/featured/the-best-albums-of-2018/
  3. On an unrelated note, I heard a song by a band called Halfnoise last week and thought that would be a good name for a Semisonic tribute band.
  4. Trying not to variant collect, but couldn't help myself. I'll let it be what the wife gets me for Christmas.

    Black Friday RSD 2018

    Just got one for $21.50 with shipping, which is about what I would have paid in store. Maybe I could hold out and get it for a bit less, but that’s a fair price.

    I’ll hold out for now. Thanks.

    The Manchester Orchestra Demos are running about $30 on eBay/discogs. Anyone know what they were typically running in store?

    Your annual reminder that in the vast majority of cases, Black Friday/RSD is literally the worst day to buy Black Friday/RSD albums on eBay/discogs. R-E-L-A-X

    Black Friday RSD 2018

    Trying to figure out if it’s worth it to stand in line for the Manchester Orchestra record or if it will be reasonably available after - 2000 copies seems like plenty, right? It’s the only thing I want besides the Toad box set (and I have a lead on a copy of that).
  11. I see that these are starting to trickle out and can now be ordered at https://www.interventionrecords.com/artists/matthew-sweet/ and elsewhere. Anyone have them and have thoughts on their quality? I have OPs of everything (except Son of Altered Beast, which was not previously pressed) and the price is a bit steep, but I love these albums and might bite at the bundle if it's worth it.

  13. Take This To Heart Pressing of this great album from last year - discounted for Black Friday already for $10. http://www.takethistoheartrecords.com/products/608470-barely-civil-we-can-live-here-forever https://barelycivil.bandcamp.com/ It’s easy to get lost in Wisconsin. Metropolitan centers might anchor to the Midwest, but patches of sprawling wilderness and bitter weather make for an American outlier. Barely Civil was built from this backdrop—four different dots on the state map. Despite this, their debut full-length We Can Live Here Forever plots a journey home, whatever and wherever that means. Stopovers across genre and structure keep the pace measured and lean, while Matt Riefler’s layered production explodes any breathing room into powerful statements. Vocalist/guitarist and primary lyricist Connor Erickson leaves plenty of signage trailing to his home base. “Eau Claire? Oh, Claire.” marries Wisco landmarks with a portrait of cautious twenty-something love. “Stark” and “Kent” — a pair of slumbering guitar tracks in the back half — gain their names from his and bassist Ben Forst’s address lines. There’s also an outward mobility as the tracks grow in magnitude, cataloging sleepless nights in Super 8 motels, in others’ houses, in the scattered silence carried through cigarette smoke and whispered confessions. The nomadic scene changes match the record’s morphing between indie-rock’s straight-laced and stratospheric ambitions in minutes. For Barely Civil, home isn’t really a place. It’s a collection of things—tones, conversations, milemarkers—that will ultimately find a home for you too. "We Can Live Here Forever" is out now on CD/CS/Digital via Take This To Heart Records Tracks I've Been Getting Headaches Lately Lost Found Eau Claire Oh Claire.

    Counting Crows Reissues

    AAEA is my favorite album of all time, but the 45 RPM resissue by Analogue is one of the best sounding albums I've heard, so I'm not gonna pull the trigger (though I really want to because THE HOBBY).
