Bandcamp Friday Haul + Odds'n'Ends

Went a little nuts today, but here goes:
1Amulets
False Horizon


Actually the newest one, Blooming, which doesn't appear to be in the database just yet. My first foray into this artist.
2Bandit
Of Life


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.
3Buke and Gase and So Percussion
A Record Of...


After the love the site gave Scholars, sort of surprised this hasn't gotten more attention.
4Endling (UK)
The Heavy Frigate


Thanks for the reco, Sputnik!
5Explosions in the Sky
Those Who Tell the Truth...


Scooped up a cheap, bent corner version from Temporary Residence, talk about a blast from the past.
6Explosions in the Sky
The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place


^Ditto, gonna be a nostalgic-ass weekend once these arrive.
7Godspeed You! Black Emperor
G_d's Pee AT STATE'S END!


Whatever, I'll listen to it. Free shipping.
8Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada


Rounding out the Records that Got Me Into Post-Rock subplot.
9JPEGMAFIA
EP!


Obligatory not-just-rock-and-rock-adjacent-music entry.
10JPEGMAFIA
EP2!


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.
11Mono
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.
12Open Hand
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.
13Zao
The Crimson Corridor


Come on, now.
14Julien Baker
Little Oblivions


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.
15Chevelle
NIRATIAS


Odd'n'End 2a: Another 3.8 in the making right here, ordered from the band's site.
16Chevelle
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.
17Dance 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.
