  1. The good? Not $200! The bad? $50 each! Claim to be limited but no indication of how limited. Anyone see these anywhere else that suggests a more reasonable price point? There’s a 15% off coupon if you sign up for the mailing list, but still. https://toadthewetsprocket.shop.redstarmerch.com/dept/music?cp=68769_68890
  2. According to their Facebook page, they are working on making more copies available, but it still sounds like something that will be exclusive to the band.
  3. The Green in Red album is rad but still super available used last I checked.
  4. Yep. Was glad to see it. Plus, I see that Better Than Ezra’s Friction Baby is in the list for the next round, so perhaps they are steering into the 90s alternative reissues niche that I’ve been hoping for.

    Best of 2018 - First Half of the Year

    Nice list here: http://www.getalternative.com/50-best-releases-2018-far/ A couple I had mentioned in my list above, but from the others I’ve checked out I also like what I’ve heard so far from that Barely Civil album and I go back and forth on the Animal Flag record.

    Albums That Should Be Pressed on Vinyl

    Toad put up a video in Facebook that looks quite a bit like them listening to a test press of Dulcinea. So, fingers crossed.

    Best of 2018 - First Half of the Year

    Still (forever, plus now I need to check out all the stuff others are posting)) catching up, but off the dome: Spanish Love Songs - Schmaltz Cecil Frena - The Gridlock Postdata - Let’s Be Wilderness World’s Greatest Dad - Get Well Soon Republic of Wolves - Shrine l’ll add that based on what I heard last wekend, the new Foxing record will definitely be high on my year-end list.
  10. I mean, I’m into the doc, but this is a vinyl forum, right? At least between the T Swizzle gifs?
  11. 7” of new single “I Know How to Speak” on sale. https://themanchesterorchestrastore.myshopify.com/products/i-know-how-to-speak-7-pre-order

    PO NOW: Foxing - Nearer My God

    Man the black must’ve gone quick. Showing out of stock. Actually just grabbed one after showing not available several times.
  15. Ordered so fast. Her last album and EP are really great. http://www.runforcoverrecords.com/products/615780-petal-magic-gone
  16. Triple Crown reissuing The Yunahon Mixtape for those who still haven’t picked it up. https://triplecrownrecords.merchdirect.com/products/63579-oso-oso-the-yunahon-mixtape
  17. Thought the same re: American Laundromat, but if ROG wants to do it fine by me. Heck, I’d probably vote for this even if I didn’t actually want it because I wonder if a really good response to this might convince them to focus on all the unpressed/foreign pressed early alternative rock releases that should pretty obviously be their focus, as others have observed. Such a goldmine of that period of albums that middle aged suckers like me can’t resist scooping up.
  18. Juliana Hatfield’s Only Everything is in the ballot for the next pressing. I implore you to vote for it. http://runoutgroovevinyl.com/juliana-hatfield-only-everything.html?eml=2018June8/4342278/6416261&etsubid=116397878
  19. This was on Sterogum's list of best albums of 2018 so far and I'm really digging it. Saw posts for their previous albums, but not for this one, so I'm passing it along: http://simplestereo.storenvy.com/collections/5397-the-republic-of-wolves/products/23424450-the-republic-of-wolves-shrine-vinyl https://therepublicofwolves.bandcamp.com/album/shrine It's possible these have already shipped if Twitter is any indication, but the site says shipping in late June.

    PO NOW: Snail Mail - Lush LP

    I’d like to see this pullquote on the shrink wrap.
  21. Nice looking collection. Going through mine to see what you might not have and came across Documentary and my copy of this: https://www.discogs.com/REM-Roger-Bill-Mike-Pete-Remember-The-Byrds/release/4232752, which I don’t see. It’s not REM exactly, but pretty close. Maybe you’ve added those since. My favorite R.E.M. boot is the Bingo Hand Job show(s).

    PO: Typhoon "Offerings"

    Willing to sell my red copy of this if anyone’s still interested. PM me. Now sold.

    PO NOW: Why? - Alopecia (Reissue - Multiple Variants)

    I was way into this album when it came out, but haven't listened to it in awhile. I'll need to relisten before I pull the trigger but this sounds like a cool package.
  24. Same. This is my favorite album from my favorite band, but my OG copy sounds really great. Plus, the one I have weirdly has the business card of Ron Scarselli from IRS Records, who designed the packaging for the album (and was actually nominated for a Grammy for it) taped to the back with several other business cards in the sleeve. Which means apparent he was using the whole vinyl record as a baller business card, which is just epic.
