Cancelling orders because the color didn't look like the mockup, you guys are bonkers. If the mockup had had streaks like that instead of dots/splatter, you'd have been fine with it. 

To be fair I also have the deluxe 2LP ordered from Polyvinyl which I 100% would have been keeping. I just wanted to have one standard single LP to spin if I didn’t feel like flipping/swapping discs. And I was going to support the band/label still by ordering another in its place. I wasn’t talking about not getting the album at all because the variant turned out kind of weak. Anyways, tough guy, I kept my full original PV order AND ordered another copy from Newbury.

If the mock-up had streaks like that, I wouldn’t have ordered it, period.  You don’t know me!  Still sticking with my 180 gram (x2 LP) order for sure.  But Dan continues to echo all of my thoughts and sentiments on this release.  I’ll probably cave on a Newbury copy for a single LP.  Not gonna’ bail on Polyvinyl though.

I honestly can’t believe I’m gonna say it. LP3 has now edged LP2

Damn.

This makes sense because you still get your airhead. Win/Win

That pink is looking like a really solid choice. Reminds me of when the pink Deafheaven OCHL turned out so nice and I had some serious pink envy (even when spinning that pretty clear variant).

 The only pink vinyl record I have a lies for the liars.

This is what I was expecting it to look like.  Only remaining image of the mock-up I could find online.

Fingers crossed the NB variant turns out better, but it’s the same plant so I’m sure it’s going to be a streaky “splatter” as well. I think that tends to look ok on a transparent base, so it could turn out better. If not then people who go with pink or blue will likely have the most aesthetically pleasing variants.

Some kind of pink/blue or orange/blue merge or a side/b side could’ve been a great choice to match the cover.
