Seeing as this is the closest thing to a music purchasing thread, I've been looking for reliable websites to get vintage vinyls. I'm trying to look beyond Ebay. Specifically, I've been dying to get a solid Ink Spots record.

I am at home visiting my family for a little while. Naturally, I am bored. Here are some pictures of all the vinyl I bought over the summer. Notice the lovely blankets on the guestroom bed.


Group shot of some 7"s.


Closer photo of the Tigers Jaw EP on purple vinyl. It came with little foam animals! One is a rhino and one is a bird.


Tigers Jaw self-titled full length. The album sleeve is handmade! Pretty cool.


You and Me and the Mountain etched! Bonus picture of the sleeve.


Marie by Romance of Young Tigers. Pretty stunning album with amazing artwork. The extra posters that came with it are hanging on the wall at my actual house.


Cosmo's Factory!


Had a pretty nice talk about the Husker Doodles with the dude who was working at the store where I bought this.


Terrorhawk on white and yellow marbley vinyl with new covert art by Marc Paffi.


White Light/White Heat/White Vinyl.


Colossal! You can't really tell by the picture, but the vinyl is a really pretty wine colour.


Sharks Keep Moving's Desert Strings and Drifters on orange with black splash! I was pretty happy to snag this.


Yeah, that's right. I hugged this record to my chest when it came in the mail. It is the first thing I ever won on eBay.

Why do you have to do this to me? It's like records stores know my record player is broke and I can't afford to fix it, or afford any records for that matter.

Where did you order these from, anyway?

been on a psych/experimental kick lately, a couple albums purchased


Plankton Wat- Dawn of the Golden Eternity

Dragon Turtle-  Almanac


Almanac is quickly reaching the top albums of this year status.  Great atmospheric psych folk, but so much more full sounding than most psych albums.  Sounds like Eno could have produced it.   I've been championing this album to a couple friends, but they aren't trying to hear it because the band name is fucking Dragon Turtle.   Stream on La-soc.com it's a beautiful album.   Double gatefold split colored and splattered vinyl, great packaging.   I'll try and upload a photo soon as I get my camera fixed....

picked up the "Mariachi El Bronx" album, and Spiritualized's "Ladies and Gentlemen, We are Floating in Space" (never heard them before, but people were jizzing over it on here and it was on offer for 3 quid.  s'not bad, although not something i'd listen to often) today.  also, "We Didn't Come Here to Die" and "Mutiny Pop" by The Copyrights arrived in the post yesterday morning, which was awesome.

Not a purchase, but I got home from work last night to find a package containing Brant Bjork's "Somera Sol" on clear red vinyl. Apparently my best friend got it for me as an xmas gift. She is the BEST.

Yeah, it does look a bit old. After I checked the SST site I found the My War LP in one of my favorite records store. A bit pricey but If I'd have ordered it from that site it would cost me a lot more with the shipping and all.

Also got Ramones' Rocket to Russia and DK's Bedtime for Democracy LPs that day.

HEY MOTHERFUCKERS, SEE THOSE? I JUST GOT THOSE




At a quarter volume, it is way louder than my old dildo speakers. At third volume, it's loud enough to actually feel like I'm sitting next to someone playing a double drum set. At half volume it starts vibrating shit off my shelves. I'm scared to turn it up further.

It's more...I dunno, ambient? Most of the songs have little to no structure. It's definitely worth listening to, there's a few really great tracks.

My dad and his girlfriend got me a $100 gift card to Best Buy. Apparently they sell vinyl online? I just ordered the following, in addition to the first season of The Big Bang Theory and the third season of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations:

-Ted Leo & The Pharamacists - "Shake The Sheets"
-Boris - "Boris at Last - Feedbacker - "
-Dinosaur Jr. - "Where You Been"

i ordered the cd of this off amazon the other day.  i'd never heard any of their stuff but had heard the name being thrown about, and after a quick look on youtube, one listen each of "me and mia" and "little dawn" were enough for me to go and order the album immediately!

Invested heavily in a couple local stores (Electric Fetus and Treehouse Records, if you live in Minneapolis and were wondering) with the following purchases:

Low - Things We Lost in the Fire
Fugazi - Instrument Soundtrack
GY!BE - Lift Yr. Skinny Fists like Antennas to Heaven!
GY!BE - Slow Riot for New Zero Kanada EP
Tortoise - Beacons of Ancestorship
Boris - Heavy Rock Hits Vol. 2 7"
Boris - Heavy Rock Hits Vol. 3 7"

I was also given a bunch of used vinyl for Christmas, including Stevie Wonder's Songs in the Key of Life and The Kronos Quartet Plays Thelonius Monk.

picked up the newest manic street preachers record ("journal for plague lovers"), and "secrets and lies" the second full-length by an awesome welsh stoner-metal/hardcore band called Taint.  they were both sorta bought as the result of "oh, i have some hmv vouchers.... and there's fuck all i want in this shop atm... well... these'll do." and after a listen each, i was thrilled.  badass albums!

Hellfest is in June, right? So there's actually a good chance I can go.

All those days building tents would come into good use.

Also pagebreak, so here are some records from last month:

Kudos.


Thanks!  I'm just starting to dip my toes into jazz, and (as typical) I'm beginning with the non-traditional forms: free jazz, Davis' electric period, John Zorn's omnivorous revisions...

Happily I got The Wire Primers for Christmas, which not only has a primer on free jazz in general, but separate primers on Ornette and Sun Ra.  I suspect I'll be purchasing more in the near future.

I'm not very hardcore in to jazz (I've only heard Coltrane, Davis, and Hancock so far, but I have a bunch of the classics on m,y computer, unlistened to), but that album is sheer brilliance.
