Been hoping for a full-length from these guys for quite some time. This came as a nice surprise.

Wes and Nick are great guys, and only an hour away. Love all their songs on the EPs -- can still put on repeat and never get tired - and this LP really opens them up a bit more. Highly recommend checking them out! I think they finally found a regular bassist as well. Tons of energy live. Since MayFly is no more they were talking to other labels vs. DIY'ing it all the way.

I didn't think this needed it's own thread, but still warranted a post somewhere. 13 years later Flotation Toy Warning has put out a new album, and holy fuck it's gorgeous. 

 Dream/Indie Pop, Psychedelic, and very ethereal sounding, some o you might dig it.

^^^ I wonder if they'd be up for working with us at MOMR to put it out on vinyl.

I messaged Wes on twitter re: if they were thinking DIY like Rosetta  vs. label since Mayfly is now defunct; and that I back you and Austin hard re: any physical release.

I honestly don't know how any of the business/contract stuff works, but I know MOMR does quality product and with a personal touch --- heart and soul, blood, sweat and tears.

Thanks for doing that, Don! Immensely appreciated. I'm going to email them soon after I've discussed it further with Austin. He's on board though.

The Catherine Wheel - Ferment MOV reissue is up for PO at SoundStage Direct: 

 

http://www.soundstagedirect.com/catherine-wheel-ferment-180-gram-vinyl-records.shtml

 

Order quick if you want to snag one of the /1500. They tend to go quick when SSD has any MOV releases.

Thanks.  Any idea how you'll know (prior to receiving) that you're getting the limited?

In the item description, they'll take out the "First Pressing Of 1,500 Numbered Copies On 180 Gram Orange And Gold Mixed Vinyl" from the info as soon as they run through their allotment of it. As long as it still shows it, you should be good. So order it.

Done and done, thanks.  Not relevant to this thread at all, but picked up Blackstreet   Another Level MOV pre order as well, ha.

It's been up on BM for a while too. I snagged one a while back when someone mentioned it.  :)

 

I think as long as you get an order in relatively quickly you should get the /1500.

 

Edit: NVM, apparently Bullmoose sold through theirs.

btw, two new albums just came out on Saint Marie (possibly the best shoegaze label going) and you should give them your time.

 

Secret Shine

http://www.saintmarierecords.com/products/585927-secret-shine-there-is-only-now

 

Seasurfer

http://www.saintmarierecords.com/products/585928-seasurfer-under-the-milkyway-who-cares

 

the Secret Shine album especially is gorgeous front to back.

Secret Shine is insanely good.  I think I still like The Cherry Wave - Shimaru as my SG album of this year but Im blown away by the postrock choral and Britpop influences (I feel like the chorus of "Burning Stars" more than borrows from Charlatans "The Only One I Know")...and the 8 bit synth scattered throughout is a nice distraction before you get pounded by guitar/drums/synth.  Im going to need a lot more time with this one.

In case you missed this one...Bullmoose reopened orders for the  Catherine Wheel - Ferment MOV reissue

http://www.bullmoose.com/p/25160064/catherine-wheel-ferment-mixed-orang-gold-vinyl

Thanks for this. My Amazon order got delayed indefinitely it seems, so I'm jumping on it.

Don't know if anyone has posted about this yet, but Curve's Doppelganger and Cuckoo are getting re-pressed.

In case anyone missed it, Saint Marie has clarified the options for Secret Shine Singles 1992-1994 (basically GTG 10" + Ephemeral and Loveblind)

/250 each of Black, Pink, Blue and Green, $2 extra for colors, but still reasonably priced as always.

Very stoked to not have to fork out >$100 for a 10" to hear 5 of my favorite tracks of theirs (GTG), and be all nervous about dropping it or scratching, etc.

Sant Marie: Secret Shine Singles 1992-1994

Between this and Alison's Halo, 2017 has pretty much delivered my 1990's fix. Everything else is icing on the cake! :)

thanks for this. now for my turn to remind everyone that Darla.com is almost always cheaper for Saint Marie releases, and this is no exception.
