I mentioned in Music From Memory thread but better to give a heads up here maybe.

This shop in NYC is incredible. I rely on them to turn me on to new stuff. Their instagram is very useful.

New Mark Barrott ep, Sketches From A Distant Ocean is a nice return to that chill island vibe

Holy crap just barely got one before they sold out. Better be good for $50 US! Everything about it sounds up my alley.

Evan, Monday, 17 June 2019 12:15 (seven months ago) link

dang, when i clicked there were 17 left, 16 after I bought one. these went quick.

brotherlovesdub, Monday, 17 June 2019 16:17 (seven months ago) link

The last 10 must have sold within 5-10 minutes it was crazy.

Evan, Monday, 17 June 2019 16:28 (seven months ago) link

Yowza!

brimstead, Monday, 17 June 2019 16:40 (seven months ago) link

The page now shows 29 copies available. I feel like artists do this on purpose to get people to order quickly. If either of these guys ever complain about streaming royalties after charging $55 for 20mins of music, they can die in a fire.

brotherlovesdub, Monday, 17 June 2019 21:59 (seven months ago) link

A chunk of that is for shipping though. Looking at vinyl prices, £30 for a small press issue doesn't seem that extravagant.

groovypanda, Tuesday, 18 June 2019 07:59 (seven months ago) link

They better not be lying about the total pressing too. This is the third time I’ve been had by intentionally misleading bandcamp “x copies left” slimy sales tactics. The other two times my fav store Commend (mentioned earlier) had them in stock a week after they “sold out” on bandcamp. It’s a bit shitty to drive sales by going “well yeah technically this particular box has 20 copies left in it so it’s not a lie”

errr

Paul Ponzi, Tuesday, 18 June 2019 11:49 (seven months ago) link

Sure, $30 for a small press is fine, and yeah, the shipping does make it much worse, but what are the options? You can only buy this if you agree to the shipping fees, so shipping is part of the price of this item. This won't be for sale in my (or your) local shop.

brotherlovesdub, Tuesday, 18 June 2019 16:52 (seven months ago) link

I hope not, or I'll feel like even more of a sucker.

The Sad About The Times compilation on Anthology is excellent and well worth checking out for fans of melancholic, 70s FM folk rock

You are alone in a hot tub on a warm summer night back in the '70s.

i'm in. thanks groovypanda

brimstead, Thursday, 20 June 2019 19:37 (six months ago) link

Vinyl Factory very wrongly tagged that comp as Yacht Rock so I had to quickly adjust my expectations when I started listening.

Daniel_Rf, Friday, 21 June 2019 08:44 (six months ago) link

That Gumba Fire comp from last year sounding absolutely fantastic out the garden in this hot weather

This mix is all kinds of ace. Properly Balearic.

That Gumab Fire comp is very underrated, one of my fav comps from last year.

Daniel_Rf, Wednesday, 24 July 2019 09:41 (five months ago) link

Thanks for the heads up on Pilotwings, groovypanda! After that I checked out the Molitor 71 EP and it's great so far.

That's it. I refuse to get had ever again. Sure enough Postcards From Nowhere is getting stocked at Commend NYC. Fuck you Melody As Truth...
