|Bandcamp Friday Haul + Odds'n'Ends|
Went a little nuts today, but here goes:
Actually the newest one, Blooming, which doesn't appear to be in the database just yet. My first foray into this artist.
A bit of a throwback, but a buddy of mine turned me onto this band recently, very solid proto-Katie Malco vibes, with a bit more instrumental diversity backing it. Not sure if they're completely kaput, but even if so, hell of a standalone, right here.

A Record Of...
After the love the site gave Scholars, sort of surprised this hasn't gotten more attention.
The Heavy Frigate
Thanks for the reco, Sputnik!

Those Who Tell the Truth...
Scooped up a cheap, bent corner version from Temporary Residence, talk about a blast from the past.

The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place
^Ditto, gonna be a nostalgic-ass weekend once these arrive.

G_d's Pee AT STATE'S END!
Whatever, I'll listen to it. Free shipping.

Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada
Rounding out the Records that Got Me Into Post-Rock subplot.
Obligatory not-just-rock-and-rock-adjacent-music entry.
Foreals, though, have slept on my man for too long, especially sharing a home city. Just got the vinyl reissue of Black Ben Carson recently, so pretty solid timing here, albeit through sheer coincidence.
Nowhere Now Here
...aaaaaand we're back to this. But hey, at least it's kinda-sorta new, technically. Got their upcoming live one, as well.
You and Me
Actually got their bundle, as well as the out-of-the-blue new album weirdo. No idea how that's gonna sound, especially in the wake of the bewildering Honey, but honestly, just glad to see them still making music. You and Me, in particular, is a cover-to-cover classic in my book, definitely a forgotten and deeply buried treasure.
The Crimson Corridor
Come on, now.
Odd'n'End 1: Only available on Bandcamp digitally, but grabbed this vinyl at my shop, definitely a move back towards Sprained Ankle-tier quality here.
Odd'n'End 2a: Another 3.8 in the making right here, ordered from the band's site.
This Type Of Thinking (Could Do Us In)
Odd'n'End 2b: Another vinyl double-dip, picked it up along with the above. Arguably the band's pinnacle, at least as far as creative earworms go.
|17||Dance Gavin Dance|
Tree City Sessions 2
Odd'n'End 3: Finally got this sucker ordered. Lives up to the first entry, which is truly saying something.
|Sweet - Bandcamp still doing the first Friday of the month sales?|
|Yeah, pretty cool of them. I got the following on CD:|
Infester - To The Depths, In Degredation
Necrophagist - Onset to Putrefaction
Dying Fetus - Stop At Nothing
Denzel Curry - 13 EP
Also got a Jandek CD since I was already blowin money
|I tried to throw some heads up on 3 but didn't get very far. It's a great album though.|
|This is the first time I see 1 being mentioned by someone other than me on this site|
|hey man, #4 is mine, appreciate the purchase a lot!|
|Haha nice, I'm digging it very much.|
