Hey guys. For anyone interested...Selling a used Demon Days Vinyl on ebay. It's in really good shape. Price shouldn't go as high as most of them go far. it's at $114 right now.
I picked up The Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense at Rhino the other day. I love it.
I have a few of the picture discs that come packaged in tight, thick, clear plastic sleeves. I'm worried about the plastic breaking down. Is this a problem? What is a good alternative?
Synthetic ID - White Walls EP
Smashing Pumpkins - Blissed
I had forgotten all about the Pumpkins flexi. They sent it to compensate people who preordered the Gish/Siamese Dream reissues that were delayed. I just found my copy recently. Neat.
My friend just surprised me with a belated birthday gift. It's a box of 30 cd's from the Hydra Head fire sale.

Bryan, I didn't get a chance to send out the records before leaving for KY. I'll put them in the mail after I get back. Most likely Tuesday.
:/ well I learned a couple important lessons about Discogs .
1) Do not go on when your drunk.
2) When buying always check out the sellers profile.
I got ripped off trying to buy Funcrusher Plus :(
Iggy Pop & The Stooges - Raw Power
Hank Williams - Legendary Country Singers
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Let Love In
LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver 2xLP (got it on sale through DFA for $10!)
They were scratch and dent copies up there a week or two ago.
Spooks posted about it in the LCD thread; my copy has a bit of corner damage but the records themselves are fine.
Picked up this 7" last night:) Less than 100 copies left!
Revelator is the somber vision of musician Ben Chisholm, who is also a full time member of Chelsea Wolfe. Recording under the name "White Horse" since 2010, he has released a number of highly praised experimental solo recordings including "Final Coordinates" and "The Revenant Gospels I, II, and III". Sighting other artists working under that same moniker, the name was eventually put out to pasture in 2012. With this fresh start, Revelator offers "Net of Gems", a melancholic and haunting song driven by a wash of electronics, throbbing percussion, spiraling piano and subtle guitar work. He effortlessly constructs a sonic world which conjures up delicate hallucinogenic visions akin to a spry Pink Floyd, but darker and more ethereal.
Wear Your Wounds is the product of years of solo experimentation by founding Converge member Jacob Bannon. Picking up where his avante-garde projects Irons and Supermachiner left off, "Adrift In You" quickly builds into a hook laden storm of sound. Subtle electronics, massive guitars, and huge percussion swirl as poignant vocals call from the eye of it all. Bringing to mind the stark sounds of Swans, Killing Joke, My Bloody Valentine, and other like minded artists.
Low Level Owl by The Appleseed Cast has been reissued and is available now. So excited to finally get this on vinyl and as an added bonus it's one of the best looking pressings I have seen.
The SBTRKT LIVE album that was released digitally today is getting a limited (500) LP/DVD pressing and is available for preorder on the Young Turks website for a February release. Came out to $50 after conversion for shipping to the US....ugh.
