PO: BARONESS - All Sales Are Final!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Looks like the folks fulfilling these orders may not know about media mail, which blows my mind. They say they're using 'standard shipping' which I take to mean retail ground. Same delivery date range as media mail, but starts at $7.35. I'm astounded.

Just came across a UK store that sells a colored version of the album for £24.99. Color is unspecified, but I placed an order regardless, since I missed out on the ones that were offered on the Baroness site. Apparently, this is a UK indies exclusive:

Rough Trade has a ltd. edition for sale as well (probably the same one), and their website states it's limited to 2500 copies:

anybody know what the deal with switching off is? trying to figure out whose turn it will be Friday in NYC

They alternate. I went to the show in Sayreville and Deafheaven closed the show. Looking at the rest of the dates it looks like Baroness is closing your show.  

 

The show waa incredible. I like both bands equally but the place really cleared out after Baroness. It was nice to see Deafheaven in a half empty smaller venue. Last time I was them was in a sold out Brooklyn Steel. Enjoy!

When I saw them with Deafheaven like 70% of the crowd left after Baroness finished. Sad that everyone just went to see an hour of standard fair anthemic rock (the likes of Foo Fighters with more solos) instead of staying for heavenly transcendence. Oh well, lucky for me and everyone who stayed!

Did a hipster from Williamsburg, Brooklyn ghostwrite this comment for you?

ouch...never really understood the appeal to Baroness myself, stop caring about them alltogether after the Blue album.

That’s the proper cutoff.  Unpopular opinion around here, but the streak leading up to and through Blue is ace and holds up well for me.  Everything after hasn’t exactly been my cup of tea, but there are some cool concepts strung out here and there.  Definitely wish they’d figure out their production and tone down the anthemic songwriting in exchange for stuff that was a little more complex and jammy, like the Red days.  But to each their own.
