  1. Nobody flips the ilttle fishes' stuff right? Band: Lacing The ATX Bummer has never sold -- probably true collectors; the 2nd run had one sell for $50. I'm sure the flippers don't lurk on this thread.
  2. My orange splatter arrived some time ago, no cushion, but no dings and sounds great.
  3. I like it OK, but not as much as their first, and nowhere near my top ten -gaze (sorry for being the wet blanket, I usually refrain)
  4. A1KAFAMILY for 25% off as well through tomorrow I think. Greg, is this tape /33 as well? I got a free poster this summer with all kinds of clues like an astrology card / treasure map of sorts, but I could never crack the code to get in the store on the days they were selling stuff. You get these metal Ascensionist themed things, different from the Gemini coin, with the tape purchases. I missed out on I and II, but got III and IV (and now V). Just happened to check Instagram at the right time after work.
  5. Hearing's just fine jajaja! "extreme...hyperbole" is redundant, but I'll take it. VC = hyperbole. Dude should just go Jonsi. Yes, I love Jonsi. ;smooch:
  6. At first I heard nasal, then it was more like hits of Helium that affects his voice for a while then wears off. Or, maybe Helium and pinching his nose, strange.
  7. Got mine 8 days after ordering (!), no seam splits or vinyl quality issues - sounds great. There was some glitter-like stuff on both albums, about a dozen flecks, easily removed with antistatic brush before cleaning.
  8. Confirmed with RG that he is going to press Turnaround in the future (first time on vinyl -- CD's go for ridiculous $)
  9. Love(d) this band, but never got any merch. Very cool to see a thread as Citrus is in perpetual 'go to' mode. Their label Polvinvyl has a legit shirt up (in Large, too) here I have had an ebay search for one particular shirt of a postrock band ongoing for 8+ years, and managed 3 so far
  10. I love when this happens - more and more every year
  11. Yep, I mussed up again (will edit), and very true re: most gazey stuff on vinyl. This album goes above so celestial/ethereal with fullness to whatever the next dimension adjective is "soaring"?? -yet they did put some umphh on there in places on side 2. I checked back about 45 minutes and they were still up, so peeps had plenty of time to mull over all the variables. It helped having plenty of time to digest this beauty to know it will have staying power in my rotation with Radiogaze. My budget was around $35 and I figured it would probably be closer to $45. So now, what if the repress is better than white - like Clear?
