|Record Store Day?|
Honestly, not a ton that's too exciting for the June drop (July has more that strikes my fancy), but hey, it's a good excuse to check out one of my local shops that only just recently reopened in the wake of Covid. List is the short list of what I'm after, plus some extracurriculars I'm keeping an eye out for:
Not actually the above, but a 7" with an Outkast cover and original on the b-side. In related news, don't have any concrete stats backing this up, but "Roots" is probably one of my most listened-to songs this year.
Collections from the Whiteout
Variations Vol. 1 - Definitely my highest priority, but also, I'm assuming, the one most liable to disappear quickly. Still need to jam the above more, but this purports to have "stripped back" versions of the songs, which might be just the inroad my Forget Where We Were-loving self may need.
Embarrassing as it is, another top priority. Mostly on account of, having this alongside last year's Hybrid Theory/Reanimation Reissue, and I'll bascially have the complete run of my personal nostalgia-era LP on, uh, LP.
Heir to Despair
Will be my first foray into this band, whose back catalogue is...intimidating. Definitely a nice-to-have (rather than need-to-have), but hey, keeping an eye out.
To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere
Another firmly in the nice-to-have column, but such is the letdown that was Palms that this now counts as a good ol' days Thrice. RSD sidebar: the Deeper Wells EP that came out a couple back is actually their most consistent work since Beggars, so here's hoping that new record they keep teasing is a return to form.
Extracurricular 1: Still on the hunt for this vinyl, as much for the DGD alum's artwork as anything else, but tune-wise it's been a solid grower for me, as well, definitely in the upper third of this band's discography.
Extracurricular 2: Didn't know this was dropping until earlier this week, my man's solo output has been consistently solid, and unfairly (if understandably) neglected in lieu of everything else swirling around AtDi/Mars Volta/Sparta. Anyways, hyped for this.
Antlers in Velvet
Extracurricular 3: Shout-out to Sputnik's very own Sowing for putting this on my radar, the description of Pink-Floyd-does-a-country-album is pretty spot-on, while also not feeling like a total gimmick.
...And Again into the Light
Extracurricular 4: Longest of longshots here, given that it's sold out on both Bandcamp and the Bindrune site, but we live in hope, right?
|Referring to records as extracurricular jesus christ |
|The superstar himself!|
|Just picked up BIG final chapter and tatu’s debut. Pretty poor year this year tbf though|
|Yeah, not a whole lot I’m interested in today as well; talked with my local shop as I’m working through the event, but if they’re still there by the end, the owner of the shop said he’d set aside the Tarkus PD and Opeth for me.|
|Welp, gang, considering I got skunked on truly all of the above, still came away with a decent haul:|
John Carpenter and Dave Davies' Village of the Damned score 2LP
Deftones' "Digital Bath"/"Feiticeira" remix picture-disc
Emerson, Lake, & Palmer's Tarkus picture-disc
Fela Kuti's Open & Close 2LP
Nada Surf's Cycle Through LP
...plus a pile of used books, and a sick-ass Kane (from WWE) action figure, so...overall, I'm pretty content. How'd everybody else make out?
|Nobody fucks with the jesus|
|Picked Thrice's TBEITBN and i am so fucking stoked cause i have just started collecting vinyls :)|
|What's a pederast, walter?|
|The cure put wild mood swings so I'm gonna be looking for that. |
|Picked up morningrise|
|went and picked up a shit ton|
|also bought morningrise ^^^ but the real treasure is the Wipers 'Youth of America' anniversary edition I grabbed. Pretty sure I got the only copy in the store. The packaging for it is beyond stellar and I can't wait to spin it. |
extracurricular; also picked up 'Power, Corruption & Lies' as well as 'Ohms'
|snagged Ihsahn - After : )|
|I got the Meteora vinyl too don’t worry|
|You lucky sunuva...|
|I got the meteora record for a discord friend, the prices on it are insanity now|
|Was able to nab Tarkus and Morningrise, so I’m happy. July’s RSD is gonna fuckin’ kill me though….|
|Nice, glad your hookup came through for you. And yeah, July's looking like the larger haul fo sho.|
|I still say 8 sounds like the Dead, however I picked up|
Ramones, and one more I cant think of right now
