1B1L, if you're looking to get your grubby mitts on one of these blue s/t LPs, there are 163 left. Just a heads up.

Thanks for the heads up. I am mad poor at the moment, so I'm going to have to pass on it. They're not repressing the Cherry Tree EP on vinyl, then? Just the posters, right?

It'll be out later this year including the poster. September or so. Not a lot of details on that yet, but Alec from Brassland said they're planning some "extra special" things for that one. We'll see if it merits a double purchase, although I'm more than pleased having a more rare copy than a more "extra special" one.

I hear you on the $$$ front, but I just got a $125 check from doing market research and figured it was a nice way to treat myself. I can't even go out to record stores at this point because I know I'll spend way too much money. It's an addiction.

Speak of the devil, I just got an email from Brassland saying it shipped.

Oh, good. I was hoping they'd be repressing that one too. And, as I'm not lucky enough to have one of the original pressings, I'll be snapping it up in a second.

God, I know. I haven't been to a record shop in months. Last time I went was for Record Store Day, I think, and I dropped like $80.

I don't buy records because my hearing isn't good enough to discern the differences in quality and they're more expensive, but I have (finally) begun buying albums on CD. The new (finally) music store in State College certainly helps. While up there for Arts Fest, I bought a few National and Radiohead albums.

Apart from the sound, I much prefer vinyl for the artwork. Its nice and big. So much more collectible than the crappy little CD books they put in the jewel cases. I haven't bought a CD for years, but I was growing tired of having a virtual music collection. I keep the cost down by only buying my very favourite albums; No filler

Likewise. Sound is definitely a selling point, but I find the artwork and packaging so much more immersive, even to the point where it shapes the experience of hearing the album. Placing the big ole record on the turntable and dropping the needle is more personal and intimate.

That may have got a little sexual there.

I keep refusing to buy a record player, as I already am too much of a collector with just CDs. I get sick to my stomach even imagining how many vinyl albums I'd have to buy of things I already have the CD of, let alone new things / collectors pressings, etc. To some extent, I have a hard time believing the recent vinyl resurgence isn't going to end up being a fad, though I could end up completely wrong about that. I'm a bit of an audiophile, and I've never been overly wow-ed by any of my friend's records sound wise in comparison to CD, and a few have relatively expensive systems. People seem to buy expensive things and not know how to actual calibrate them or set up up decently though (80% of HD tvs I see are still on their factory settings), so I'm never sure if it's the sound or their inability to properly set things up I'm not overly impressed with. Regardless, it's cool people are actually paying for music in some way.

I never realized you weren't a vinyl listener. Interesting.


I want that copy of the S/T, I'm a pretty big fan of that album, actually, but I am in the same $$$ camp as the rest of ya.

Tomorrow I'll be buying my ticket for my third jaunt with THE NASH! on October 8 in Dallas, fortunately a bye week for Texas football.

Couple that with potentially seeing their ACL taping the following Monday and I'll be happier than a pig in heat slop.

Awesome, so they're making nearly 50% on "convenience fees". I wish bands would stop using shitty companies like that to sell tickets. I'd rather buy directly from artist and just give them more money for the ticket than pay some asshole site who's still surviving off of a seedy business model from eons ago. There's no longer any "convenience" about being able to buy tickets online, it's the damn norm. How the hell do these big dinosaur ticket companies still exist, and why do artists keep supporting them?

Couldn't tell you. I'm just fortunate that the only reason I'm having to deal with LiveNation is because this show is in a different city. That don't fly round these parts.
