her bandcamp has the same colors as the indie, but says its a tri color. Don’t know if they are indeed different variants

No idea if this will also apply to US indie stores, or even if this description is correct, but found this note for the pre-order with Banquet Records. It could be one of those situations where you don't know the color until you open it.

"Indies exclusive LP is on 'grey or blue or yellow' coloured vinyl."

that reads to me like a bad result in a game of telephone.

 

the label has it as "blue/yellow/gray tri-color", as does bandcamp. my spidey sense is telling me all of these are the same thing.

Bullmoose specifically lists the variant they are getting as an indie exclusive. The lomelda online store and soccer mommy Bandcamp are not indie record stores. This is the only thing making people think maybe there are other variants. Could just as easily be a mistake and there is in fact just the one. One day we’ll find out.

Wouldn't be the first time something labeled "indie exclusive" somewhere was also sold by the label and/or the artist.

 

I'm just saying it smells -- to me, at this time -- like bullmoose/banquet/loma vista/sophie's bandcamp are going to end up being the same version.

Let it be known I’m merely playing devil’s advocate here... this also wouldn’t be the first time the same colors were used in multiple different styles of variants. Could easily be the tri-color via the band/label and a “mix” (which I’d assume is a starburst of some sort) for the indie stores.

I think that's likely, but that there's also a chance that the tri-color is the label/artist exclusive, and the indie is similar to the reissue of Root Down, random solid of blue or gray or yellow.

 

Only one shop, and it's in the UK, is saying that's the case, so there's definitely a decent chance that they're pressing a bunch of the same "limited" tri-color and that's all anyone can get, and maybe there'll be a black repress later on if necessary.

Bullmoose just sent an email clarifying the Indie variant. It is not the tri color, it is a random all Yellow, all Blue or all Grey LP.

Thanks for ordering the Soccer Mommy LP from us. I want to let you know exactly what you ordered.

Her label told stores that the record would be "yellow/grey/blue mix vinyl." That doesn't mean that it's a tri-color or swirl vinyl. You will get a yellow record, a grey record, or a blue record. You won't know until you open the package which color you got.

We totally understand if you're not interested any more. You can cancel your order by going to your order history. 

I'm sorry about this. We should have had a more precise description when we started our pre-sale.

Thanks for understanding.

Chris
