Bjork - Post (pink vinyl)
I paid a premium for it, €38 plus shipping, totally worth it though. I had seen a normal black vinyl copy at the store but decided to go for this one instead
Glad I don't collect Glassjaw records. I'd fucking kill myself haha....120 different variants?!
On sale next Friday: http://instagram.com/p/czuqimG2An/#
Yeah. I'm all the more stoked that it wasn't the picture disc reissue, since I hate the sound quality of picture discs. I mean, it's still on clear vinyl (Profound Lore must not want the record to last) but at least it's better than paper fucking up the quality. I cannot wait for this one to show up.
Finally met up with my friend who was holding a couple of RSD releases I had him buy at Coachella. Also got some stuff on Discogs.

Greg and Bryan, you guys should both check out the S.E. Rogie record...it's a type of Sierra Leone folk music called "Palm Wine" -- really relaxed, gentle stuff.
Bryan, you should check out the His Electro Blue Voice record. It SLAYS. You'll be into it if you like METZ, but they approach things a bit differently. It's more shoegazey.
On another note, are there any good record stores in the south bay/San Jose area? I'm going to be down there for almost a full week next month for work, and am trying to find ways to pass the time in the evenings. :P
How many of these record stores have you guys been to? For me: 5!
ps Forever Young Records in Grand Prairie, Texas looks insane.
