  1. Not impossible but going to cost you some coin, such a great album, and so few pressed with both pressings. Good luck mate!
  2. I opened this thread with haste thinking "Robert Fripp's dance band in the early 80's got a box set pressing by Steven Wilson?" Doubt anyone on this site ever heard of his side project, which was so atypical...and surprisingly good, too. Mr Spock can disco!
  3. Warning: I think my traditionally rock/metal bandcamp has been taken over by the "everything"-gaze mistress drds89 bandcamp
  4. Thank you kindly! I'm envious of all the great bands that swing through Seattle! Hope you have a great time!
  5. Thanks for the rec Justin. I seem to like 95% of the stuff you post. Edit: And.... one album in /one listen, and this proves to be another incredible recommendation (The tesa reminder scored me a couple of their albums). These guys are on an instrumental rock mission, driving guitar lines with a purpose, and not repetitive or too mathy / proggy for some here. Some metal components in there as well the way Russian Circles mixes in metal with rock. Can't wait to listen to more.
  6. Amazing list! Just got a copy of SJ5 Box (Gold), good luck on the sale
  7. Edit: thanks to @CatsNJazz Sargent House is now working with Kristina's project "Miserable," and this new release is slated for October 26th. Pre-order here on Hell Merch: Transparent Red Vinyl and Black Vinyl options Listen to a new track "Gasoline" on Bandcamp I have the Dog Days cassette from the UK - same 4 track titles as on this one (tracks 5 - 8). Miserable: Loverboy / Dog Days
  8. Vinyl sounds GREAT, especially the lows, I almost had to turn my loudness button off And they did an almost perfect edit for the album to be an LP ; side a 33 RPM and I didn't clock it, but think about 20 min vs 30 min track on digital; and side B is 45 RPM with just the two grindgaze tracks that pump. Cut out 10 min of filler side a and the last 2 tracks on side b
  9. Finally back in town where I could listen all the way through without the stream cutting off (happened 3 times and I gave up)-- this is a solid release, and I especially like the edge they have added to several tracks. Reminds me of TPSQ in some parts (who are due/ overdue for an album this year) and for @mrewest No Screechy Violins, not even once! It never really hits a high point like the closer on New Topographics, but I want this on vinyl, and of course, the limited. Need to do the math on a subscription and see what 'reasonable' shipping costs are vs waiting a year or two to see what UK subscribers will list this for on discogs. It's the shipping that's going to kill if from private UK sellers. I seriously doubt 200 subscribers will be hanging tightly onto this. It's very good, but not Caspian D&D or Tides of Man: Y&C level.
  10. I just got the LP today and had the download on bandcamp (still private).
  11. Apologies I wasn't clear in my post re: this pre-order. Your points are well taken on the actual product and pricing along with the color and ltd craze vs Black vinyl. I was thinking of the perfume (Emily's latest), signed cassettes (Pagans), and sterobox? (Synthetica) - but these were just extras as you pointed out. Help, I'm Alive will always have that skip
  12. I'm glad they did a SS 12" and I like the swirl /300 better than color in color /200. However, that would break up my collecting ocd with toe releases and the most limited variant. Not buying both. Throwing another $5 away on the CS.
  13. They maxed out their politico and anti-establishment (including music industry) angst with early albums, and Fantasies is hit after hit after hit - hard to top. There are some high points with the last two and Emily’s solo album, but I’m through preordering the $ gimmicks.
  14. To their credit, the European and Russian Fed fans show up in droves compared to us US postrock/metal heads. So it’s just a fact of life 6-7 hr round trips for Caspian Russian Circles etc. (Even Nothing is skipping Virginia with Swirlies, doing the typical RDU —>DC circuit) Any RVA show is a miracle we don’t pass. edit: it’s a sad fact to think airline fare for 6 dudes + equipment and then all the miles in Europe still nets more coin for them. Unless they’re just going for the scenery and beer. (-;
