Gotdam I literally only have mild interest in that Thrice 7".  Not one other thing so far is something I'd even bother picking up simply to participate in the day.  Might just turn into a "who is having good sales on regular stuff" day.

If you lived in my area, you'd be pumped. My local's anniversary is the week before RSD, so they do 20% off new stuff, 50% off used, and have crap ton of other deals in celebration. They're already reasonable (unless discogs is fetching a pretty penny on something used, even then it's lower) so it's pretty dope. Good luck out there!

Yeah I'll definitely have to be on the look out.  I know the places I usually visit don't really do extra sales so I might have to look for a new place this year.

unless she committed to lolla very recently, she won't be in the lineup when the announcement is made in less than two weeks.  

 

90% of lolla 2017 was booked by the end of last summer (well, october), and st. vincent was nowhere to be found...

 

in any event, i know for a fact that her album is finished (many other reports can corroborate), because i've heard a few tracks already.  it all comes down to whatever the hell she has planned for the release.

Oh shit. What did they sound like? And why the delay? The lack of shows makes me think it isn't dropping until the fall or next year. I wonder if she pulls a Beyonce or Radiohead and drops it by surprise.

Her profile is bigger than its ever been (especially coming off the relationship she was in), I could see a surprise release. But seeing as we are hitting May/June release announcements, maybe we'll hear something in the next couple weeks. 

 

I cant imagine her sitting on the album into the fall or next year if it is done:

Just checked FAB again and there's five pages worth of stuff now.  So might be worth another look. 

These are new:

Cocteau Twins - Milk And Kisses 2LP (Milk coloured vinyl*) *I'm assuming that's just plain old white
Cocteau Twins - Four Calendar Cafe 2LP (Midnight Blue vinyl)

ephemeral is a good adjective to describe all things st. vincent.

 

the tracks i heard (a month or two ago) were mixed, but not yet mastered. she has a ton of material, too -- way more than for a full length LP -- and (as of a month ago) she was having a hard time coming up with a final tracklist...but she finally settled on one.

 

everything must be taken with a grain of salt, though, because i'm told she might be walking back her final decision (i.e. she may have had second thoughts within the last few weeks). with commitments to film festivals and such that have kept her busy over the last couple months, i wouldn't be surprised if she simply hasn't had the time to pull all the necessary triggers to press on with a full release in the immediate future (i.e. next month).  my best guess is that if she releases anything for RSD, it'll be a 7" or 10" single or some such in advance of an album later this year. 

 

btw, the tracks i heard sound very different from those on her last LP. hard to articulate how to describe them, though.

What's the source on this/can you link me? If this is true I might actually faint.

Very interesting, thanks. Fascinated by the back and forth on a tracklisting. I hope the stuff that doesn't make it at least gets released later. May I ask how you've been able to access the secret songs of the almighty?

 

Itching for another tour, as well. How's she going to top the last one? I mean:

I think Karen Elson might have something for RSD. I know she has a small fanbase, but she's releasing a new record soon and has a past history of participating. Plus, her ties to Third Man and all.

You can preorder her new record now, its neither a RSD release nor being released through TMR.  However, she is playing a show at TMR (not on RSD though).

I knew that, but she also loves releasing ltd. edition 7"s so I thought we might get one of those. Her PO for "Double Roses" is actually pretty cheap on Amazon ($17-ish, I think).

In the land of "maybe", it looks like The Cure are releasing both their Greatest Hits and Acoustic Hits as picture discs for RSD 2017.  If this is true, I finally found something that I absolutely must have!   

 

 

Per a Cure Fan Site:  A few days ago, Universal Italy had a link to their ftp site posted, and listed two Cure vinyl releases for Record Store Day 2017. One was a remastered picture disc of 'Greatest Hits', the other a picture disc of 'Acoustic Hits'. They've since been removed, but looks good that they will actually get released this year. And there are listings for them on Amazon Italy and France. Only question is whether it's a UK/Europe only release, or will be available everywhere? Also, just how limited will they be?
