  1. Missed here! I used to message with James (Lyle) quite a bit when he said they were writing the new material. He had an informal 'make an offer' on some test presses to try to raise funds once they were finished. I got his copy S/T TP, but somewhere along the way I think Maciek ended up with it. And I forgot about the songs ever seeing the light of day. Do you have a link?
  2. Love Darla, but that price tag is out of character from past re-issues^ New news: Toronto shoegaze band Iris has changed its name to Bliss Fields and will re-release its ST EP after re-forming in 2017 with all new members save one. ST EP Vinyl and CS on Backpack records long sold out. Brookly Vegan: Listen to ear bleeding track Order here FWIW: "Haunt Me" 10 inch with original members is in perpetual rotation at my house
  3. I hope Caspian and Maserati do their East Coast tour that got cancelled due to the pandemic. On a different, how about the new Amenra and YONL? I'm only a couple listens into each and feel like they are going to keep getting better with more listens.
  4. Muchas gracias! I thought this year would be a low budget year for vinyl, but some great 1st presses and box sets are pressing me to add another set of cubes to the shelfF
  5. Amen to that Owen! I caved for the YONL Box set when it first dropped on indiemerch, early birthday present yep. Hoping Amenra tours here again and get a tour copy signed as per Mass VI. Colin is one of the most humble and gracious people. That may be a long way off, or not financially feasible for them, but fingers crossed. Bossk vinyl should be worth the wait later this year. I've hit my cassette tape limit, so I will wait to see if the music dislodges anything out of my collection.
  6. Kept poking around for 15 or 20% coupon floating around in the aether but no luck, only the 10% work. USA it's $214ppd Media or $219 Priority vs ordering from Europe ($269). Heck yeah. I must do this, to go with The Angelic Process box set that I haven't cracked open yet. I will have to break out this one new though - for new album - and Derek's point is well taken re: Vampyr. It is a cool thing to listen to while watching the movie - and someone on you tube already sync'ed it up years ago.
  7. It may have been Charlie (abovetheearth), I first heard about them from him years ago when we had time to message. Not a new release but I finally got around to picking up Signal Hill's "More After We're Gone" 10 year anniversary RM last bandcamp Friday, and it sounds so good on vinyl. Lighter side, but engaging Postrock FFO: The Mercury Program, Beware of Safety "Leaves & Scars" era Signal Hill: More After We're Gone 2xLP Always dreamed about those 3 playing a show together - just getting TMP from Florida to LA or vice versa made it a pipe dream of course, but hey. I did ge
  8. Read posts above, the seller either didn't reply or wasn't selling after all. Some just post here to get a free appraisal of their collection, find a sucker or two to overpay for some records, or simply have second thoughts/ get cold feet -- but then don't bother to edit/delete and comment no longer for sale.
  9. Queller and Dagdrom are always in rotation, forgive if I've said it before, Queller is a great entry point and imo most accessible to anyone not familiar with drone. Those riffs just stick with you. Sonnborner is definitely worth more listens @Mars Their splits with Vampillia - The Perfect World and Imperfection clicked with me, whereas some others did not. The Bungled And The Botched was the one that got me hooked. My sealed copy from Amoeba records had a jarring, loud pop for at least 15 revs right before the wall hits, so I had to replace it -- with a white label copy. It to
  10. Agreed! Can't wait for the vinyl - I believe Aidan said August on his and their IG Passed on the Disrotted split, maybe need a few more listens....
  11. New Mogwai (loving it) and Godspeed for 2021 - whoa! GIAA has been a pleasant surprise: a good portion sounds like Russian Circles "light." Their tour in EU playing All Is Violent + new material for 2021 has been pushed to 2022 (no surprise). Will travel if they come to the US and things are safer out there. For any nostalgics, I completely missed April 2020 release - first time on vinyl: All The Bright Lights S/T. Pricey, but this is a special album for me. (FFO light, atmospheric post rock with memorable riffs, and don't mind some buried vocals. Not an EITS copycat) All The
