New coloured vinyl: March 2014
As another month of record buying comes to a close, I thought I would post a nice round up of the new additions to my collection.
First up is the debut from ‘The World is a Beautiful Place and I Am Not Afraid to Die’ called ‘Whenever, If Ever’. Pressed on a translucent blue with smokey blue marbling (and a few other colours too). As an added bonus, I got this just in time to see them perform at the Green Door Store, Brighton, UK on the 6th April – so hopefully it will be signed soon.
Next up are two ‘The Wonder Years’ LPs . First up is their critically acclaimed ‘Surburbia, I’ve Given My All, and Now I’m Nothing’ album from 2011. Pressed on clear vinyl
Then, the more recent, and absolutely stunning follow-up, 2013’s ‘The Greatest Generation’ pressed on translucent orange vinyl. As with the TWIABPAIANLATD vinyl, I have also got these in time to see the band perform live at The Haunt, Brighton later on in April.
Next up is the slightly delayed Crosses LP on White heavyweight vinyl. A great record from one Chino from Deftones many side projects. Check the yellow and grey “smoking” on the vinyl – nice touch.
And finally, the live version of Finch’s amazing debut album, What It Is To Burn on white heavyweight vinyl.
New vinyl so good, I’ve cancelled tonight’s RSD update
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
