Time for another RSD13 update.
Starting off with a couple of 12″s, first up being part 1 of the Deftones Live Selections From series – Adrenaline:
Next up, the Team Ghost – Terre Brûlée EP on cherry red vinyl:
Next, Built to Spill’s 2×12″ Live reissue:
Next up, Chapel Club’s super colourful 12″ picture disc sampler for the forthcoming new LP (picture is the same both sides):
Then, finally for the 12″s, is the Pulp X Soulwax single
Lastly, for this update at least, a selection of 7″s from Frank Turner (brown vinyl), Dog Is Dead, Glasvegas (white vinyl) [picture one] and The Twilight Sad, Moby/Mark Lanegan, Foals and Everything Everything (signed) [picture two]
Arrived home from work to find a package on the doorstep – thank god it didn’t rain today!!
So, I opened it – not expecting it to be my latest eBay purchase from America – but it was, and what’s more, it is soooo awesome that I am gonna take a break from my nightly RSD updates to give it it’s own post – and the biggest picture I can
So, for those unfamiliar with the record, this is the Hot Topic repress of Finch’s debut album “What it is to burn” on 2x aqua-blue marbled vinyl (and probably some of the best marbling I have seen on a record).
Not only does it look amazing – it absolutely matches it in terms of content. I love this album.
No update tomorrow as I am off to the IMAX for Iron Man 3
Update no.3 and time to focus on some nice coloured vinyl LPs
First up is The White Stripes’ “Elephant” reissue on white and red/black vinyl
Next up is the Sigur Ros’ “Hvarf / Heim” on green and blue vinyl
Lastly is the At The Drive-In’s “Relationship of Command” Reissue on orange vinyl
So another night, and another update from the enormous RSD13 haul.
First up is the nice UK/US Biffy Clyro releases of “Modern Magic Formula”and “Black Chandelier” on clear splattered vinyl
Then it’s time for two of the RCA Victor branded signed releases for Kodaline and Dry The River (I am missing the Everything Everything release – boo)
Then on to some 12″ singles from Dutch Uncles, The Joy Formidable, the Grouplove/ Frightened Rabbit split that features the Manchester Orchestra and then the two Jamie xx edits of The xx’s Sunset and Reconsider (presented in a normal die cut xx white sleeve but with a metallic looking wrap around inner sleeve)
Then, it’s the turn of the Recover EP from CHVRCHES on orange translucent vinyl – it’s so nice I took a photo of it being spun
Now for the last item of this update – and the newest in the entire haul – only being picked up on Monday night – the Soundgarden King Animal Demos EP – unfortunately not on pink vinyl like the US fans, but instead on boring black
With only 6 days left until RecordStoreDay 2013 – what better way to celebrate than to buy some vinyl from my favourite independent record store (Resident, Brighton).
First up, the two Haim 10″s in pink and cream vinyl:
Next up is the new singles from The Strokes and Everything Everything and the repress of Sigur Ros’ classic Agaetic Byrjun, repressed on black heavyweight vinyl:
Last but not least the double a-side single from unsigned Bristol band, The Naturals – released on Howling Owl Records:
Next up is a handful of records all off of the Last Night on Earth record label. The first great thing about this record label (other than the tunes themselves) is the artwork on the 12″ sleeves – which in my opinion make this record label instantly collectable.
Looking at the vinyl, the nicest one of the three is the Hot Chip – Flutes (Sasha Remix) – on single sides white heavyweight vinyl.
