Wow, you guys both killed it with those digs.
I'm glad you picked up that Charlie Feathers 10". The tunes rip and it's totally up your alley.
Air - Playground Love
Gotta love being able to use credit card rewards points to buy records.
Turnover's Peripheral Vision is excellent on first listen. It's definitely still the same band, but much dreamier and woozier. Really catchy, though, and it builds on similar threads from Magnolia....
That's interesting. I feel like my collection would get too crazy if I did that. Usually things just live in Rock/Pop until I decide there are enough to warrant their own section. For example, some...
Also just got the following. My internet sleuthing for Mark Kozelek paid off!
The Verve - The Verve EP
The Cure - Disintegration
Mark Kozelek - What's Next to the Moon
I ended up combining a few sections. Part of my worry was organizing my collection in a bigoted or ridiculous way..."Oh, here's all the black music!" It's a little oversensitive, but something that...
Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Nat King Cole live in Jazz. I have a ton of Sinatra, but not enough to warrant its own section.
Question for you guys. I've reached the point where it makes sense to organize my records by genre. I've been slowly doing it, to the point where I have the following:
Damn. Great score.
Would also like to request the new Turnover album when it leaks. Many thanks.
This Nai Harvest album is really good. It's called Hairball, and you can stream it here. You'll be into it if you like Male Bonding. Has a bit of a Teenage Fanclub vibe too, but more punky and not...
I need to take a break from buying records for a sec.
Mott the Hoople - Mad Shadow
Mr. Airplane Man - Red Lite
Swans - Swans
Charlie Feathers - Charlie Feathers
Damn, everyone wants $12 for it on Discogs. Time to pony up.
It used to be one of the shipping options. Maybe they've changed it?
Fuck, I should have got that Air 7". I love that song. Looks like I can buy a copy though. How much did you pay for it?
Looks like it is posted here.
Although I don't know if they will have that stuff posted until later. Either way, you will be able to order online.
1-2-3-4 Go! in Oakland had multiple copies of the Manic Street Preachers record. I bet the SF one has/had it too. You can order online today I believe and pick it up at the store rather than pay to...
Rasputin in Berkeley has many. I guess they were from a Black Friday in the past and are marked down extensively. It was $3.99 or $4.99?
RSD scores. I was extremely well-behaved. Just need that Kozelek record.
I had no idea about Shugo Tokumaru until I got the Polyvinyl newsletter yesterday and decided to do some research. These...
If anyone grabbed a copy of the Mark Kozelek record and wants to part with it, let me know. That's one of my favorites of all time, and rather than go to RSD super early I went to the auto mechanic...
Electric Wizard was as good as I could have hoped for. So awesome.
The new Metz hits like a ton of bricks, so it's another Metz album. It's awesome. Can't wait to see 'em live again.
Yesssssss. Need to download.
Sturgill Simpson - High Top Mountain
Sturgill Simpson - Metamodern Sounds in Country Music
Parking is hit or miss around Slim's. I've always been pretty lucky. I highly recommend not leaving anything in your car -- I think break-ins around there are less frequent, but a former boss of mine...
That show was unbelievably good. I'm so glad I was able to experience that.
Ride exceeded all expectations at the Warfield tonight. It could not have been any better. They ended with a cover of "I Wanna Be Your Dog" that transitioned from "Chelsea Girl". I mean, c'mon.
Yes, yes we did. It sounds terrible, but I met a bunch of people that night and it is tough to keep everyone straight haha, so I'd appreciate a reintroduction. Were you there with Jose?
We are leaving the East Bay around 6 and will head to Tempest. I'll be the guy in the denim jacket with the Talking Heads badge. So basically I'll be like anyone else there.
We record right by Tempest/Box, so we are huge fans and I'm sure Robbie is on board with that.
I'm a big fan of Tempest and could get behind that. I'm up for anything, really.
I read somewhere that the costs associated with opening new plants is tremendous.
Honestly, I haven't drank around there in awhile, so I don't really know. Mikkeller Bar would be fun though...I haven't been to the SF one yet.
Nice! Glad you liked 'em. They totally rule.
Not sure what everyone's plan is beforehand, but might be worth meeting up to grab a beer before the gig. Thoughts?
The balcony is fine at the Warfield -- I watched Refused from up there. Sometimes it's nice to sit down. I prefer GA personally, though.
Had a shitty day yesterday, which meant buying records to make myself feel better.
The War on Drugs - Lost in the Dream
Calibre - Do Your Thang Now b/w Inpulse
Marcus Intalex & S.T....
I kind of like this new Carly Rae Jepsen song that she played on SNL with Devonte Hynes. It's basically just a Blood Orange song. The other song was pretty good too, but a little more obnoxious. I'm...
In case anyone cares, I can confirm that the Mingus represses on Superior Viaduct look and sound awesome.
Talk Talk - The Colour of Spring
I refused to listen to the first album because I hated the character so much. But "Bored in the USA" hooked me (c'mon, who uses a laugh track in a fucking beautiful piano ballad?), and the rest of...
I've been pretty obsessed with the first two songs off the new Turnover album. The newest one is really getting me right now:
Picked up the Mingus reissues on Superior Viaduct because a friend reminded me how awesome Charles Mingus is. No more records 'til Record Store Day. Unless I go to a show and want to support a band....
Mekons - Fear and Whiskey
The White Stripes - Under Amazonian Lights
So stoked to own the Mekons album. And Third Man does not fuck around with these vault releases. I don't need much beyond...
Taking it easy today. It was far too nice out to not go to the record store.
Cocteau Twins - Heaven or Las Vegas
Golden Ring - A Gathering of Friends for Making Music
We got word on Friday that we are opening for Palma Violets at Rickshaw Stop on Tuesday (3/24). Feel free to come party with us.
Well, either way.
Q: What do you get when you take a dead baby, light it on fire, and toss it down the stairs?
A: An erection
I might be able to host something next weekend if my roommate is out of town. More to come.
This, when I started buying vinyl seriously later in college. I was ordering ALL THE TIME right after I graduated.
