    This is a good summary for those who can’t read the NYT article.

    So, this is a whole thing (https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/20/arts/music/the-wrens-aeon-station.html?searchResultPosition=1) but this new album from Kevin Whelan certainly scratched my long standing Wrens itch, so I’m in.

    Late to this album but really digging it. Not really familiar with their back catalog so I don’t know how much of a departure it is, but this is reminding me a bit of the recent Harmony Woods album. If anyone snagged the mystery/GITD vinyl and is looking to unload it, hit me up.

    Anyone taking odds on these going up individually after they sell out of multiple pressings of the boxed sets?

    dawhizz got a reaction from tape in PO: R.E.M. - New Adventures in Hi-Fi (25th Anniversary)   
    On a personal note, this rerelease is taking me back to ten years ago when I stumbled onto a vendor at our local record fair selling nice OPs of New Adventures in Hi-Fi and Electro-Shock Blues for $25 and $15, respectively and snagged them both. Probably the best deal I ever got, and yet it’s also convinced me to return to the record fair on a fairly regular basis (because you never know) with extremely diminishing returns.

    Yep. Amazon has it up for PO, I’m sure others will soon enough as well.

    Ordered black from my local store then saw the coloured but missed out there. My original copy is one of the best sounding vinyl I own so hoping this lives up to it!!

    Just listening to it a few times (and having  gone to the show over the weekend) I think NMG had higher highs but I like this more as an album - there are some skippable tracks for me on NMG, but I like all these songs. We’ll see how that holds up for me - I felt the same way about the last Manchester Orchestra album and now I find most of the second half pretty forgettable. 
     
    Small gripe about my Smartpunk vinyl - the numbering on the plastic sleeve is great, but they printed it so the opening is at the bottom, which, doesn’t really protect the bottom from shelf wear. Is everyone else’s like that? My other Smartpunk releases have not been done that way.

    dawhizz got a reaction from faaip de oiad in At what point will you stop collecting?   
    I definitely have times where I’m like “why is this my thing”, but I also come to the conclusion that a person has to have a thing, and if it wasn’t collecting records it would have to be fantasy baseball or model ships or extreme rock climbing or something else, and I just really like listening to and talking about music so it might as well be vinyl.

    No Sleep has a 35% back to school sale going on now for all orders over $20. Nabbed a test press I’ve had my eye on.

    For those going to the show Saturday, the venue is now requiring a negative test/proof of vaccination for entry. Seems like a lot of venues are going that way. https://www.thepageant.com/covid-19/

    I’ll be at the STL show next week as well. My first show in almost 2 years. Be aware that at the moment masks are required for indoor events in St. Louis regardless of vaccination status (https://www.thepageant.com/covid-19/). Will be interesting to see how that works out at the show.

    End of an Ear is the move, IMO. Waterloo probably has the best overall selection if you factor in new records, but End if an Ear is the place I think you are most likely to find something you can’t find anywhere else, which is usually my personal priority. It’s not near downtown but a pretty close to the airport if you’re flying in so you can hit it in your way in or out of town and maybe still squeeze in Waterloo.

    Looks like the most limited (/200) is only available in the bundles, unless I’m missing something.

    Love the new Fishboy album! Was fun to hang out on the square in Denton on Waitsgiving Day seeing him play the album / give a tour.
