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.

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 (one year 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 (one year ago) link
The last 10 must have sold within 5-10 minutes it was crazy.

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 (one year 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 (one year 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”

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 (one year 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
― groovypanda, Thursday, 20 June 2019 10:41 (one year ago) link
You are alone in a hot tub on a warm summer night back in the '70s.
i'm in. thanks groovypanda

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 (one year ago) link
That Gumba Fire comp from last year sounding absolutely fantastic out the garden in this hot weather
― groovypanda, Saturday, 29 June 2019 09:28 (one year ago) link
This mix is all kinds of ace. Properly Balearic.
― groovypanda, Thursday, 11 July 2019 11:44 (one year ago) link
That Gumab Fire comp is very underrated, one of my fav comps from last year.
― Daniel_Rf, Wednesday, 24 July 2019 09:41 (one year 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.
― Evan, Friday, 26 July 2019 15:58 (one year ago) link
Yup, the Pilotwings mix is A+.

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...

Now this is really nice. Much more dreamy and relaxed than their albums.

Not that those are all nature themed, but anything that fits in with the vibe
― Evan, Monday, 10 February 2020 16:26 (five months ago) link
Is this a spotify list and can it be shared?
― Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Monday, 10 February 2020 16:37 (five months ago) link
It is not, but it can become one! Not sure if all of that is on Spotify.
That was actually a back up plan if I was unable to connect the playlist from my iphone to whatever system will be there.
― Evan, Monday, 10 February 2020 16:41 (five months ago) link
It does all mix very nicely when shuffled
― Evan, Monday, 10 February 2020 17:19 (five months ago) link
Curious as to what this is - 六月花 (June Flower): 緑の丘 (Green Hills), 赤い夏 (Red Summer)- 地球 (Earth): ジャングル (Jungle)

try some Almunia, Hatchback, and Windsurf.
― omar little, Monday, 10 February 2020 17:38 (five months ago) link
Um. The Hiraeth link is a little weird; it's the bottom left album that shows up when you follow it.

Don’t forget Sorcerer with the Hatchback and Windsurf
― mmmm, Monday, 10 February 2020 17:43 (five months ago) link

Not electronic but the compilation for the extended surf shop / label promo called “Self Discovery for Social Survival” from last year might fit.
― mmmm, Monday, 10 February 2020 17:47 (five months ago) link
The promo itself has some nice surfing footage!

Greeen Linez’ Things that Fade
― mmmm, Monday, 10 February 2020 17:49 (five months ago) link
you can also easily slot this into that playlist
― omar little, Monday, 10 February 2020 17:49 (five months ago) link
it has the right spacey balearic guitar vibe though it depends on your feeling towards TWOD maybe
