    If you're handy and willing to build it yourself, this is a pretty good kit. http://www.diysoundgroup.com/speaker...amiga-kit.html

    Yeah dude! Such a hot track.


    And DIY speakers? Not quite sold on that. I don't believe I could personally achieve the level of fidelity to which I'm accustomed.

    Which Gilberto Gil self-titled? By my count he has three legit self-titled releases and three more that are live albums with titles like Gilberto Gil Au Vivo. And if that's vinyl you mind me asking how much?

    Let me know how the Aphex record sounds. If it's good, it's my next purchase. I'm listening to Selected Ambient Works Vol. 2 right now and really wishing I had Druqks instead.

    Druqks is a record I very, very much wish I owned. Are there any good represses? I'm supremely out of the loop with that stuff ...

    Never been repressed and it was only pressed in a ridiculously small number of 4LP box sets. I'm really fighting the urge to buy a copy on eBay for 100 bucks right now, but it's from England and the shipping will kill that good deal.

    Wow, that's tempting. I turn 30 this coming year, perhaps I'll have to treat myself with something like this.

    I'm avoiding it for now because popsike tells me that you can get copies for about 60-75 off eBay if you're diligent. And, he's reissued much of the catalog in the past few years, so I'd almost expect this to be included in that eventually.

    Thrift stores:

    Roy Orbison - The Orbison Way
    Duane Eddy - $1,000,000 Worth of Twang
    The Ventures - Play Telstar and other hits

    Got a gift card to a mall that I never go to (Victoria Gardens) so i ended up going into Urban Outfitters. Found the following

    Niki & The Dove - Instinct 2LP (Green vinyl exclusive)
    Father John Misty - Fear Fun (Blue vinyl exclusive)

    There was also the new Hot Chip 2LP on Red and Blue vinyl (exclusive?), but the sleeve was pretty banged up. Anyone know how often they get exclusives? I never go into that store, so not sure if it's worth making a trip every once in a while. There's one across the street from amoeba, but it never crosses my mind to go into it.

    Woah. Yeah, I never even think to check Urban, but I do know I got an Altamont catalog from there because it had an exclusive No Age 10" once. Definitely something to check out.

    Arriving today via Amazon:

    The Gun Club - Pastoral Hide and Seek
    The Gun Club - Lucky Jim

    Never heard either. Incredibly excited.

    Urban gets quite a few exclusives. Grimes Visions on purple vinyl is pretty cool. Father John Misty Fear Fun on this sweet turquoise blue, Feist's reminder on red.. some others. They also have alot of picture discs but not sure if those are exclusive. It's worth checking their website everyone once in awhile to see - they always list their exclusives on it.

    That and the Roy Orbison record that I found recently are both so goddamn good. They're both a little beat up but still sound fine and the songs man, the songs.

    Frank Ocean - Channel Orange arrived today. I'm listening to it now. It's 2 LP's and the back has the full track listing with song times on the back and in the bottom corner it says "limited edition". It sounds great vocally and musically BUT there is subtle static that can be heard coming in during the quiet parts on occasion. I want to stress it's very subtle but absent on other new vinyl i've tested so it's not a dirty needle and the records are shiny clean. I'm playing it fairly loud and loving it so it's not ruining the experience at all. This was ordered on Discogs from a seller in Germany.

    Is that Roy Orbison disc on Monument, or had he already switched to MGM? If not Monument, it's gotta be his first or second MGM release. Nice.
