Mutemath S/T does anyone know if this ever going to be re-released?


Recommended Posts

Anyone else thinking this was just a crazy high price for the Teleprompt edition AND the self titled WB (w/ Reset and w/o Without It , etc) will be pressed at a later time for $30 ish bucks? I will not try and justify over priced things, but I know the last two years have been rough regarding taxes and self employment.  I could see THIS edition being ultra rare and easy money, AND a regular self title press at a more reasonable ($30 for double lp is still expensive ) price. Sorry if this thought has been posted. Not going to read all the other posts bc I don't have enough popcorn to go with all the salt.

I hope doesn't get re-released anytime soon. I've got one that I'm trying to sell, it isn't sealed, but I've got it. It's got minor wear on the jacket, but nothing crazy.   Also included will be the

Just think, half of these and likely the original press are hanging on a wall somewhere, framed (or not), and being played on a $50 Crosley. Hmmmmmmboyhowdy.

How did you get to know them personally? 

I wouldn't claim to know them personally, but I was at one of their soundchecks in Feb and I was chatting with them when they were done. They're really nice dudes. We talked a good 5-10 minutes. I brought up the possibility of a repress and what was destroyed in Katrina.

I received this yesterday - thinking "holy shit that was fast" - but haven't been able to play it til today. It came with no liners or bubble wrap or anything so a couple dings, but I think the gatefold probably held up well. The pressing IS fantastic, I haven't been able to hear a bit of static or noise or skips at all, everything audio is clean as a whistle. Bass is strong. The gatefold is nice and everything I want, with no real frills or extras. This record is a good memory of an exciting time in my life, and has been on my want list since I started collecting despite my taste stretching out in various ways. I'm very satisfied to own this, and if I paid 40 bucks plus shipping I would think it was a high quality buy and feel very lucky. This buy was strange because I haven't bought anything new for myself in about a month, so I felt I could treat myself and didn't balk at the price. The fact that so many balked ensured I could acquire one, so that was different from the mad rush at the first second of availability. It's a real shame they couldn't press a higher quantity of these, pleasing more fans, discouraging flippers and probably lowering the price for the bulk order. It could have gone the way of Robbers & Cowards and press so many you just shut out the flippers past and present. I don't have an extensive knowledge of contracts, but I can definitely see how they eventually fuck over fans and do weird things to the market.

 

tl;dr It was worth it to me

Glad to hear you're happy with it.  I wish it could have been more reasonable so more people were too.

 

I also will feel like shit if WB presses their version and makes it cheap - only because I like the Teleprompt version better.  But it would be fitting.

Just discovered this thread and holy shit. I had no idea Stephen Jenkins joined Mutemath. 

 

Not EVEN CLOSE. The 3EB box set is amazing. It has 4 albums, an EP, a signed placeholder for Dopamine and comes in a gorgeous box for $200

Mutemath charged SEVENTY FIVE DOLLARS for their one album.

Same here...the Telepromt version is so much better than the WB one!

just cause someone lists something for a given price doesn't mean they're gonna get it. I seriously doubt they'll sell at those prices.

Your posts on this forum, in this thread, are the vinyl world equivalent of Americans who say "Give Trump a chance! He's not that bad!"

The same could be said for the original copies that were listed at $300, which were the cause of the higher price of the reissue.

 

if the only copies for sale on the secondary market are still over $200, their plan didn't work.
