I purchased the yellow vinyl loser edition. The vinyl's very nice appearance-wise, and the cover art of the album is just beautiful (Probably my favorite beach house album art). The album also came with a piece of very interesting art work and a lyrics sheet, both quite wonderful additions. The sleeve the actual vinyl came in was not the standard paper sleeve, instead it was a custom sleeve (thank goodness!). The actual vinyl plays fine, with the only problem being the sound quality can come off as quiet at certain points in the album, whereas other songs feel full and loud. The music itself is composed of stellar alternative, electric rock songs, and ends up giving a really full and fun listen. Definitely recommend the album and this pressing is sufficient for my beach house needs.

Every Beach House record I have has some sort of issue, whether it be quietness, surface noise, distortion, or skipping. VMP's reissue of Devotion, the loser edition of Depression Cherry, and now this one. What's goin on over at Sub Pop's QC?

mine is a bit quiet but that's really the only issue, doesn't affect my enjoyment really. also the packaging is fantastic.

Ok pressing, but vinyl mastering is squashed. Stick to the digital as your go to.


May 22, 2018
Yeah, little quiet but not a big deal. Surface noise not an issue at all on my copy.

Limited to..."however many we can sell"? Do they ever put numbers on these Loser Editions? Seems to me like they're more plentiful than the standard copies.

Has anyone compared this pressing with the black vinyl version on Sub Pop?


May 15, 2018

Does anyone else have a little bit of dark color mixed into the yellow? My copy sounds pretty good, even if the mixing is pretty muddy. Luckily my copy only had a little bit of surface noise, but it is slightly warped.

Surface noise throughout both sides-- usually not very noticeable due to the nature of the music. I need to listen to the digital version to understand whether the mastering on this vinyl release was intentional or a mistake. The vinyl was cut at a low level with considerable compression and a somewhat muddied sound. This could be intentional-- either way, to get this LP to sound reasonably good you will need to turn it up LOUD. It does come on a lovely marbled yellow vinyl though!

Maybe it started off a little muddy, but I EQ'd a little bit and it sounded fine. Not off-center, and haven't noticed any surface noise issues, although let's face it, it's entirely possible that their music isn't troubled by added noise.
