  1. Not sure "The New Workout Plan" plays in the heartland.
  2. I saw this recently too. My favorite album of theirs but I got an OP some years ago.
  3. Another day of waiving Bandcamp fees on July 3. Lots of special stuff going up, and some that will purportedly only be available for that day, including some boygenious demos and a PUP live album. For more see: https://daily.bandcamp.com/features/artists-and-labels-offering-donations-special-merch-and-more-this-friday-july-3 If you're looking for something to check out, I'll throw out: Carpool - Erotic Nightmare Summer - https://acrobatunstable.bandcamp.com/album/erotic-nightmare-summer - Emo/Indie SAULT - Untitled (Black Is) - https://saultglobal.bandcamp.com/album/untitled-black-is - Soul/Hip-Hop Bad Moves - Untenable - https://badmoves.bandcamp.com/album/untenable - Punk/Power-Pop Barely Civil - I'll Figure This Out - https://barelycivil.bandcamp.com/album/ill-figure-this-out - Indie
  4. Off the top rope, here come Dine Alone with a kind of fascinating variation of items they are raffling off for BLM, including signed items, broken mike stands, test presses, and clothing. https://www.dinealonestore.com/collections/charity-raffle
  5. Hell of a week for nostalgia. I'm a little torn on this one - Now Here is Nowhere is a damn classic, but the single is really underwhelming. https://secretmachines.bandcamp.com/album/awake-in-the-brain-chamber-2
  6. This is me, sadly. It’s strange to think I may have aged out of BE (especially since Conor and I are the same age), but this is missing the messy, weird (and borderline silly) energy I used to associate with them. Maybe it’ll come together in the final product, but I’m holding off.
  7. Damn, I was just listening to Broadcaster this week. Bracing for Fig Dish news at this point.
  8. In case any fans missed it, some real gems in the oral history of the album: https://www.theringer.com/music/2020/6/17/21293057/oral-history-deftones-white-pony-20th-anniversary
  9. Probably no one else cares about this and this thread will die on the vine, which I'm fine with, but just in case - this album has been something of a white whale for me. It almost never pops up on discogs and when it does it's usually many hundreds of dollars (seriously - the LOWEST sold discogs price is $396). Looks like about 1000 being produced for the repress. There were some collectors/deluxe editions (which were really just the reissue plus a lot of other old stuff you could just as easily get from eBay/discogs) that are gone, but the regular editions seem to be moving fairly steadily, so I'm just throwing a head's up in case someone else had also given up on ever owning this album on vinyl. https://dbrecords.co.uk/tommcrae2020/
  10. If you’re impatient about receiving your copy, you could have just bought this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/153966505049
  11. Seen some Best of 2020 So Far lists start to trickle out, so I figured I'd share. Feel free to add any others. Would love to hear what other VCers are digging as well - always looking for something new. https://www.pastemagazine.com/music/best/indie-rock-albums-2020/ http://www.getalternative.com/the-best-albums-of-2020-so/ https://www.stereogum.com/featured/best-albums-2020-midyear-list/ https://www.spin.com/featured/the-30-best-albums-of-2020-so-far/
  12. Thought Scott might throw this up here, but I'm happy to do it for him. Some cool stuff here (especially the Wedding 7 inch): Youth Conspiracy Records is opening its test press vault on eBay. There are only five test pressings for each of these titles in existence. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Black Lives Matter along with other similarly minded activist groups. https://www.ebay.com/sch/stab_it_til_it_breaks/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=&rt=nc&LH_Auction=1 Titles included in this test press auction: The Forecast/Into It. Over It./The Swellers/Bomb The Music Industry! - Scott & Aubrey's Wedding 7-inch The Forecast - S/T LP Foreign Tongues - Sweet Empathy Leaving Me 7-inch Ghost Thrower/Foreign Tongues - split 7-inch Heks Orkest - Endless Scroll 7-inch Helen Earth Band - We Fucking Quit LP Meridian - Aging Truths LP Meridian - The Cathedral LP Meridian/Pinch Hitter - split 7-inch Weatherbox - American Art 2xLP Weatherbox - Follow The Rattle Of The Afghan Guitar LP Weatherbox/Person L - split 7-inch
