I go in phases. You know how it is.
Was just reading this article about some LA glam rock dude in an Ariel Pink video and thought I recognized the director's name. Turns out he was a dude in my freshman math class at LMU. He was a...
I think I only have one more record on its way. I need to cool my jets.
Myth - Evaporate
Harold Budd - Perhaps
I shouldn't be buying more records, but I had to get the Kamasi Washington LP. I picked up the Chvrches album for good measure.
Chvrches - Every Open Eye
Kamasi Washington - The Epic
I need to buy this. I stopped by 1-2-3-4 Go! on release day, but they didn't have it. I'll track down a copy tomorrow.
I'll check 'em out. Haven't really been keeping up with Third Man stuff.
A couple of mail order things came in. Stoked.
Hashman Deejay - Tangerine
House of Doors - Starcave
So good. Girls Names get no credit. That last album was easily one of the best things of that year (2012?) and no one paid attention. This is another step in that growth.
I really need to remember to cancel my Third Man Vault subscription before it automatically renews. I really didn't want this Dead Weather album, but now I have it! I'm willing to sell this vault...
The new Mantles album, All Odds End, is really good. The New Zealand vibe is especially heavy, and it has a more pastoral feel to it than the past couple of releases. Check it out.
Rehearsal went late and I had to skip tonight's show. Not happy. Hope it was fun. Zach, I'm way down to meet up next show we are mutually going to.
Stoked for tonight. Haven't seen em since pre-Local Business.
You know what? Fuck it. I don't like to be that guy, but the only way I can really buy records with my current job is by selling old records. Gonna buy it.
EDIT: Ugh, $52 with tax and shipping. Oh...
I'm still tempted. I'm sure it'll go for twice that at the end of the day. Hmmm.
Right? Strut does an excellent job with that kind of stuff.
Yeah, the more I think about it, the more I don't want to pay $38 for it.
Do I want to buy Meow the Jewels on vinyl? I guess it's a one-time pressing, and it would be super easy to flip. I'm listening to it now and it's pretty good, but it would be more about the novelty...
Her work is so dense. I think that's why I haven't bothered with the third album -- it seems like too much to tackle.
The Sexwitch album is really great. You'll dig, I think.
Not 2015, but are you a Harold Budd fan, John? I just bought Perhaps, based on a couple of songs on Discogs. It seems really good.
I hadn't listened to this in years before I tossed it on a couple of days ago. I don't *need* it on vinyl, but I like owning albums that are important to me on the format, and I don't mind...
This was rad. Can someone group? Definitely can hear how they toured with The Horrors.
I wasn't feeling the Floating Points song unfortunately. It was a little too...proggy? in terms of feel. There was interesting stuff happening, though, but it just kind of floated by.
Someone else was just raving about this. Patrick, maybe? Will check out.
I mean, it has more to do with reinterpretation than a straight-up cover. It's been fun listening to the original and Sexwitch versions of the song.
So who is Toy? I liked the playing on the...
That's a good call. Even after a reissue is announced, I can still probably sell my copy for much more than what I paid for it. I'm kind of worried I'll miss a reissue announcement, though.
I think we can all agree that this is the case. While I understand your frustration (and feel it a lot of the time, as well), we have to remember this is a different board than '06. It still has...
I feel this way about most threads beyond the CD/LP Purchase one. I have to admit, I started losing interest in Joanna Newsom after Ys, for no reason other than the fact I just didn't bother to put...
I'm debating whether I want to sell my copy of With Teeth on vinyl. It looks like this sells for $100+ on Discogs. The vinyl itself is in nearly perfect shape, the cover is VG+. The problem is this...
Just took a listen to the new Deafheaven. It didn't have quite the same emotional heft as the last one on first listen, but the songs are strong and it has a much more metal feel overall. They...
Does anyone have an extra AC/DC ticket? I'd prefer not to hang out in front of the venue on Friday to score a cheap seat, but I'll do what I have to.
I listened via this link, so unfortunately can't group. But if someone does want to do that, I'm into it!
I believe the whole album is covers of 70's psych from around the world. I haven't heard...
The Sexwitch album is excellent. Goat fans will be into it. Super groovy, minimal psych. I'm not a big Bat for Lashes fan but I'm super into this.
That's a ridiculous haul. Your friend is a keeper. The Richard Sen comp is really good.
The new Chvrches album is solid. Kinda like the last one -- really hooky, memorable in places, but kind of floats by as well. That said, I got pretty into the first one as time went on, and I imagine...
No, Snarky Puppy is too Berklee-Music-School-core for me. Was also pretty exhausted, so my friends and I bailed after Kamasi.
I heard a Sexwitch song yesterday and it was really good. I'm stoked to hear more.
Would someone mind grouping Chvrches? Please and thank you.
Got some mail order.
House of Doors - The Dolphin Hotel Affair, Vol. 1
Edikanfo - The Pace Setters
Green Glass - Green Glass
Last night's performance was excellent. He played for 45ish minutes. That band is next-level. Can't wait to see a full headlining set sometime. I assume he will be on Coachella next year, so...
Stoked to see him tonight. Wish he wasn't the opening act (I have no interest in Snarky Puppy), but hopefully he gets a solid block of time.
You couldn't ask a better person than Bryan re: Man Man.
Good to know that DIIV still can't write a good song (and especially a chorus). Gotta love reverbcore.
Been meaning to check this place out. Thanks for the heads up. We're playing Hemlock tomorrow night, so maybe I can sneak over at some point.
Tessa, I wanted to say that I genuinely appreciate how you are the official ambassador for all things Kamasi. I don't even check his site, I just check your social media. I'm excited to see him for...
Stereo Embers Magazine debuted a new single today from my band, The Tet Holiday. It's a radio edit of a song called "Statues", and you can listen to it right here. Please share with your friends.
Couple of 12" came in the mail:
Dupree - Brass Disk
Laurent Garnier - Crispy Bacon Pt. 1
I don't think I've ever seen an original of that in the wild. Great scores.
That is helpful, thank you. Do you recommend a particular music player app? I already have an HTC One M8, so that is helpful in that I don't have to invest in a new phone.
So I think my iPod has finally kicked the bucket after almost 6 years. It doesn't acknowledge when it is plugged in, which makes putting music on it/charging it pretty difficult.
My question for...
Had a Rasputin gift card from my birthday, so I bought some records. Hooray.
David Bowie - Space Oddity
Marshall Crenshaw - Marshall Crenshaw
Happy Mondays - Pills 'n Thrills and Bellyaches...
Shows at the Fox are typically done at 11. It's possible the Rickshaw show goes late, but typically their curfew is around midnight in my experience (an exception being the OSL night show with Metz a...
I'd certainly like to. SXSW is maybe a possibility next year. We just need people to start paying attention at home before we extend our reach beyond the west coast. It feels like things are starting...
