  1. count me in with you re: MNLove, Owen, always enjoy spinning that one.... and pretty much everything else, too (except the 7" just re: PITA factor) even spilt with Kasan proggy is good This new track is very promising, love the heavy and the contrasts - it's not very complex - so sometimes I wonder if it will hold up over time. But Omega Massif has, so I should put those worries aside.
  2. Finally got a chance to listen to PSOTY all the way through, and I'll echo sentiments above. A definite buy at some point, as the budget all of a sudden got destroyed with several expensive shoegaze releases, including Alcest. I did not pick up /33 Ranges with coffee beans. PSOTY first 2 EP's still need vinyl treatment. Heavy and good ISIS influence, carries through here and the vocals are as good or better than Latitudes. When you've got a good groove going, why not keep it one-dimensional and just make it one long 50+ minute track with interludes? Actually gravitating to this more than RC (blasphemy I know). Edit: Juno Records siphons again with their lower prices and shipping
  3. Used to follow her on IG don't know what happened, thanks for posting Juan!
  4. Thanks for this! First album is so so so so good. RP needed badly.
  5. Stargazer Lilies gettin' noisy - new album Occabot Astrobrite played some shows recently and there is talk of new material! Had to get one of their retro logo t shirts. DM them on Instagram $15 + shipping
  6. Rev Rev Rev: Kykeon at Fuzz Club I've exercised great restraint in not emptying the kids college fund into Fuzz Club vinyl over the years
  7. I've been through all 5 stages of grieving per KublerRoss re: Jakob vinyl and happy that they have real jobs to support their music hobby. I used to think they were underachievers for their musical composition, the reality is the PITA for the squat $ they stand to make in the business, let alone for vinyl pressing (or CDs) is obviously not worth it to them. Strong contender for FOAT guitar tones, swells, atmosphere and riffage.
  8. First time this has ever happened to me. I ordered pretty early, hard to believe they sold through 500 before my order (which included the whopping 10% discount for signing up for newsletter). Anyone else in the US besides me? "Hello, Thank you for shopping with Nuclear Blast! We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but unfortunately the Alcest mail-order box-set has been oversold on our web shop. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Your refund has been issued via PayPal for this item + partial shipping. Please allow 1-3 business days for the funds to be released to the account that was used for purchase. Once the rest of your order is ready for shipment, you’ll receive a confirmation notice via email with your tracking number information. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at any time. Thank you! Kind regards, Customer Service Department"
  9. I had to do the box set (and a cassette). 10% off for signing up NB spam, so that took $8 off the $21 shipping gouge. (Justification: I haven't bought that much this year for myself lol)
  10. FOAT band, especially early incarnations, and '81-'84. Nice to see thread here.
  11. This is going to be a banger LIVE, can not wait until Oct 30!! 2 listens in and everything seems to flow except Arluck. Hope they don't play that one but they probably will, idk. I do know once they get a set list, they do not deviate.
  12. PSOTY track sounds alot like Latitudes with the vocals; UK brethren Glaciers didn't blow me away, but will garner some other listens Liked the Ranges track the best of the new stuff so far, but Pray For Sound sure did change up their direction - just one listen, I'm definitely going to revisit. edit: The Ascent Of Everest - man are they advertising like crazy on IG
