Hi-Voltage is my indie record shop of choice. It's within walking distance of my office. I pass right by Rocket Records on my way home, too, but they tend to be a bit more expensive.

On a whim I stopped by Hi-Voltage after work. They occasionally put their new releases out Monday night before they close.

I picked up the vinyl (plus download code) and the EP. They only received 2 copies of the EP.

The tracks are acoustic versions of Simple Song, September, It's Only Life, and Young Pilgrim.

Just two copies? Yikes, I 'm gonna have to go first thing in the morning then. Hopefully I'll luck out like I did with the BSS EP a couple of years back.

Dang, I'll have to go right away too.

Just downloaded the b-side from iTunes, going to go see if Amazon has one as well.

I just hit the jackpot at my local store this morning:

CD on sale for $10
Free EP
$10 GC for being one of the first ones to get it
Small poster
Sticker

That's probably the best add-on haul I've gotten for buying a CD.

Album and EP acquired. I was also given the newest issue of Magnet magazine, and some terrible Warner Brothers music rock sampler.

I like how I was complaining in the other thread about physical EP's being overpriced, when I just bought a second copy of the album just to get this 4 track acoustic EP.

They still haven't activated the vinyl download page.

WTF Sony, I can't play vinyl at my desk.

Wow, the Dusted review is bad.

Dusted Reviews: The Shins - Port of Morrow

It's not that I agree with it, disagree with it, whatever...I'm just in awe that what essentially amounts to a forum rant (containing typos) can pass as musical criticism. This is just terrible.

It's definitely surprising how terribly written and thought out many official reviews can be, both on music sites and music magazines.

DB, did you ever find out if that one b-side is only available in Europe? I'm really liking Pariah King from iTunes. Sounds a lot better than the stream version as well, which I'm happy about.

Probably will wait until I get home to listen to CD on my nice headphones.

Yeah, looks like only European Amazon stores.

I just emailed Sony Music to let them know how unhappy I am that the vinyl download page STILL isn't up.

I just read that they're on Letterman tonight.

EDIT: Actually, looks like they're doing a mini-concert that will be streamed online before the show airs:

Pariah King should have been on the album, say in place of Fall of '82 or 40 Mark Strasse, to help balance out that half, which tends to meander a bit too much for my tastes.
