Recent vinyl scores

Altar of Plagues- White Tomb (Green)
Altar of Plagues/Year of No Light split
Urfaust/Celestial Bloodshed split (7" blue)
Fukpig/Kroh split (10" red)

Also got my eyes on the red edition of the new Wrathprayer release but Iron Bonehead say it's "available soon" and it keeps appearing and disappearing from the store. It's a nightmare!

By the way that isn't a massive crease on the inside of the Altar of Plagues vinyl, they shaded the design inside like that. Also my Urfaust/CB split is dog-eared. The sleeve is pretty flimsy anyway, but I'm pretty unimpressed, as Ván Records have been really good with shipping in the past. (Although last time it was admittedly a massive order).

Nice finds; I'm still waiting for my copy of the AoP/YoNL split to get here since they apparently didn't ship my order at the beginning of the month like they said they would, along with a shockingly cheap copy of Altar of Plagues- Sol on yellow vinyl that I found. That White Tomb reissue looks really nice though, I was holding off since I have a copy of the Deviant Records version, but I may have to pick up a copy.

Whatever AOP had in their webshop is now all gone Also the shipping for that split has been pretty delayed, haha. I instabought in the hope that I would get one of the 10 coloured pressings, I was the 5th order, but they had trouble at the pressing plant, so no coloured vinyl. I don't really mind though, the artwork on the split is magnificent and the vinyl itself is good quality. drat I love that band waaay too much. Gonna have to hunt down a copy of Sol for myself I think. Off to the dark world that is Discogs...

does anyone know any decent shops in the greater atlanta area? i guess like a 40 or 50 mile radius? i'm stuck here in suwanee on business and would like to check some shops out but nothing looks quite worth the drive into atlanta proper.

a decent amount of punx/hardcore is a plus but i'm spoiled by an exclusively punx shop nearby me at home so it's whatever. just wanna kill time in the afternoon flipping around mostly.

So all of the Americans here are probably pretty aware of how hot this summer's been (unless you're on the West coast- in which case, it's been very hot). I'm in CT, where it's often been in the mid 90's, and have begun to worry about my vinyl.

The room I keep my records in gets quite warm (not as hot as outside, though) and while I haven't noticed them getting too hot at the day's worst, I wonder if this climate's dangerous for them. My dad (who grew up in South America and had many thousands of LPs in his day) told me to be concerned, and I'm taking his advice to heart and mounting an AC in that room today (also because my guitars are in that room, and those really don't like heat). But given the number of collections sitting in attics and whatnot, I have to wonder- what is the upper limit of temperature tolerance for these things? I imagine that how they're stored and how much pressure they're under would probably have a big effect too.

Just for the hell of it, here's some cool stuff I've gotten recently:



Beach House - s/t
Neon Neon - Stainless Style
Sleep - Dopesmoker



The Flaming Lips - Hear It Is - First pressing, was sealed when I got it.



And the newest Graveface Record Club package.

I really wanted to go to Goner Records when I was in Memphis the other day, but didn't get the chance. I'm kind of glad, now, since I'm kinda broke at the moment.

Well from what my friend (Transistor Rhythm) has told me Phil is somewhat fanatical about his releases and will only release what he thinks is a beautiful and well constructed total package (which is why I didn't have to worry if the 2nd run of pressing would suddenly become black vinyl instead of the clear cloudy one). If I recall Transistor is friends or at least has some relationship with Phil but I can't really speak for him so maybe he'll post in here again and inform us more about Phil and records.


Also Surfingelectrode that Neon Neon record is fun. Good buy.

Good to hear about the temperature thing. I got a package today:



It was a day earlier than I expected (though a weekend later than it was supposed to get here, since UPS accidentally shipped it to the wrong state at the last minute). Both pieces are really well put together, despite their simplicity (just a gatefold and an LP- or two, in Swim's case- inside). The crappy lighting doesn't really do justice to just how beautifully printed they are. Here are the gatefolds for Swim and Andorra, respectively.

Backing up how gorgeous this gatefold is, I can't tell on the photo if yours is the same but my version of Swim has raised glossy indents for the pattern as well. It's one of the record covers I always pull out when trying to convince people why I collect records with one of my reasons being 'cos dey soh pretty'.

It does essentially make you look like some kind of shiny obsessed magpie mind, but I can live with that.

Edit - Oops, no they aren't. They donated to doobie instead.

To add to the glass/heat record fixing method.
You don't want to do it any longer than you absolutely have to, to reduce groove damage. I would do this experiment to get it perfect....
I would take a worthless record and purposely warp it and let it cool to a natural temp. Then, when you are ready to fix the record you want to keep, I'd do the test record first, to help gauge the time better, because once it's hot enough to flatten, every bit of time after is extra unneeded groove damage. I might even do multiple test records, and they need to be the same weight as the keeper record.

For you guys talking about warped records, the single best thing you can do is get a decent record clamp. Most methods to "restore" a warped record will result in significant degradation of sound quality, whereas a record clamp won't. It won't work on everything, but it will have a positive effect on moderately warped records. The link below is fine, but you can find loads on Audiogon, or pay millions of dollars at a local audio-phile shop.

There's something really sexy about Scrooge McDuck. I love Uncle Scrooge.


I'm helping someone sell a record collection and I could use some pointers. Most of it is some record of the month classical music collection from the "musical heritage society". I know they're not valuable but they need to be sold and I'm not sure how to bundle them. Would they sell better grouped by composer or by collection number?

MHS is best sold by weight. If I were you I'd probably try to just dump the whole lot and not bother doing small sets. However, nobody's trying to run the whole MHS discog so if you're going to bundle it then do it by composer.

Outside of a small number of LPs (and I mean small) classical collectors basically ignore MHS. It was a mail-order budget label. There's no shortage of recordings of major composers and collectors want specific players/conductors/performances and specific pressings. (Seriously, classical recording / record minutia is deeeep. I kept a cheat sheet in my car for awhile to keep some of it straight.)

There are some good recordings on MHS, but they're mostly not western classical. (Jajouka, Heiner Stadler, Moondog are still on my list.)

When doing cataloging, I've run across a couple acetates with some unreleased material. I've been hesitant to play them, as I know they have a limited number of plays due to their delicacy. What's the best way to archive them?

I've got a pair of Ortofon Pros and another pair of Stanton 680Es, but I wouldn't think that either of those are really archive quality. All my turntables are direct drive, so I'll have to use that.

My Wrathprayer LP arrived today and it is awesome! Some of the best album art of 2012! The jacket is very high quality and ahhh it's just a really well put together vinyl. Perfect.

Pictures, Pictures, Pictures!

Cannot stress enough how pleased I am with this vinyl package, the pictures definitely don't do it justice. Even though it was originally due for release in November 2011, when the detail is as good as this, it was worth the wait until it's release in June 2012.

Now this is a sensible record weight, some I've seen out there are so heavy they must be doing damage to the spindle bearings.

So my band is approaching the release of our vinyl and we have some awesome promo stuff for it. Check it out!

https://vimeo.com/45274785

This video quickly documents my friend's (also a goon) new poster company, Hellish Things, as they make the poster that comes with the vinyl.

We also have some photos of everything that the vinyl comes with.









More photos on our site, where you can also preorder it. Preorder price is $20 but when it comes out on July 10th it'll be $25. It's a translucent 180 gram blood red vinyl, hand made screen printed poster, full color insert, individually numbered (limited run of 250), digital download code.

The vinyl and jacket were made through Pirates Press.

This is huge for me and I couldn't be more excited.
