Is there a reason people aren't ordering the color vinyl from Piccadilly? Its around 20 pounds with shipping to the US and it shows still available. I emailed them a week ago to confirm and they said they will remove it when its not. 

Blows my mind that you guys get it shipped internationally for about £4 cheaper than I can get it shipped from 30 minutes away

Yea..the VAT removal helps us considerably. Piccadilly has to be one of the best when it comes to shipping too. Ans the more you order, the better it gets which is something you cant say for most European shops online. My opinion anyway...

There are technically import duties for packages into the US, but they are only enforced on low-value imports (under $800 I think) in exceptionally rare cases. I’ve never been hit. Canada, on the other hand, frequently assesses import duties on packages of any value.

Orange copies are now finally disappearing in the UK as well. There doesn't seem to any confirmation of pressing numbers, but at a guess I would say it was fairly large . Banquet still have it listed.

How have the live shows been? I've never seen Bright Eyes/Oberst live but I've seen Bridgers and I thought her solo material and performance was still a bit too sleepy and on the same level/pace (outside of Emotional Motion Sickness). On the record, this project has added that tiny bit of variation of energy that I feel would make her really fun to see live.

I tried like hell to get Tix, to no avail, but Conor has great performance charisma. Even his energy at a solo acoustic song in Carnegie Hall was great. See him with a full band or Desaparecidos and you're in for a good time. Especially if he's drunk.

Incredible. Caught them here in Vegas and the full band sound really gives more life to the songs. It was nice and made me want a live version of the songs. New song was great and I’m

bummed because the 7” wasn’t available at our date. They also did a cover of Can’t Hardly Wait by The Replacements. Opening band Sloppy Jane was also quite an experience. Definitely want to get there early for them.

Oh I’ve seen pics of Sloppy Jane’s sets. Did Bridgers also play in their band? I think she used to be in it?
