Caved and ordered the M83 and St. Vincent 7"s from store sites with leftover stock. Never saw them while I was out, but I know where to go next year!

Good finds.

I think I might go down to Waterloo during lunch in hopes they've got a Misty loser edition.

Here's how my Heady Fwends turned out



Kinda bummed there's no download code and it came in two separate covers, but holy shit balls do they look sick.

They've also been inscribed with these pearls of wisdom

"So girl you and me can watch each other pee"
"I'll ask the insect oh does he feel pain when he dies"
"You must be upgraded!!!"
"Thank you Doctor Who!!!"
"You always want to shave my balls"

Must have been Wayne, it's got his signature three exclamation marks, and well. Who the hell else would do it?

What does everyone else's say?

The blood records are unreal. Your Fwends turned out really nice (although not sure I'd stack them bare on each other like that). It totally sucks about the two separate sleeves thing though. Especially given it was a $37 record. Make it gatefold.

I had to do what I did for my King of Limbs newspaper edition and carefully cut a slit down the right side of the bag. So now the original bag is acting as a sleeve.

The Doctor Who one means there is a Doctor Who sample on the Kesha track. The other one means there is a Henry Rollins sample instead. Not sure what difference it makes in terms of collectability. I've got a Rollins, for what it's worth.

I got "Doctor Who," and I feel you on the download code considering how much the record cost.

Oops, yeah, probably should be a bit more careful. It ended up costing me almost $50 so I was pretty bummed, but I found a quality rip pretty quickly so no big deal.

The other thing I wanna ask you two is what do you think of the actual music? I actually really like it. Highlights for me are Ashes in the Air, Children of the Moon and Is David Bowie Dying? but there's hardly a dud track, I reckon. I've never seen a second of Doctor Who so I missed the sample.

Blood records are $2,500 each. 10 copies.

I actually loved the release and think it functions well as an album. Of the stuff we hadn't heard already, the Tame Impala, Badu, Chris Martin, and Bon Iver tracks are my personal highlights. I get lost in the Badu one.

My complaints have nothing to do with the music. I'm just bummed about the weak packaging and the quality control by A&R. I've got a divot in the last few grooves on my A side that drives me insane by making a loud click every rotation for the last 30 seconds or so. And allegedly the Rollins versions have more surface noise that the Doctor Who ones, but that might be conjecture.

It's also worth mentioning that, like Childish Gambino, I have very little objectivity when it comes to the Lips. I'm gonna like anything they do because they do it with such love.

Also, I think $2500 is totally reasonable for the blood records. If I were rich, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

forget generations/lifetimes, they're a one-time band.

I agree that the tracks work well as an album. I've finally given up waiting for a digital release and I'm ripping my vinyl copy.

I thought I had a locked groove on side B, but it turned out just to be a sand-grain-sized bit of gunk stuck in one of the grooves. I cleaned it with a dishwasher® four times before giving up and scraping it out with my fingernail. Seems none the worse for wear.
