I've been a big fan of shoegaze, new wave, post-punk, dream pop, and indie (and related sub genres) for many, many years. I have a large playlist I've curated with 1-song-per-artist which is a great way to expose yourself to classic alternative and modern, up-and-comers. (Currently well over 1000+ songs/artists and not just filler.) This links to it on Spotify -> http://bit.ly/moosak

Check out Bruce's cousin's band The Catherine Wheel. They were a 90s British alternative/shoegaze band. Fans of Iron Maiden may want to start with their albums Chrome or Happy Days though both have different ... See full review

I'm curious how the 7" that came with this is different, if at all, from this Film School - Dear Me? Can't the 7" and the other LP be combined to create this release?
posted a comment on The Beatles - Revolver. 3 months ago
I think a different runout of any kind, regardless of how minute, is a different release. Unfortunately a lot of people either don't enter in the complete runouts or misread them so there is always the risk of different releases being wrong. Not saying ... See full review

This is my favorite release of the year so far. Didn't expect them to put out 2 albums in a row this solid.

Recommended if you like: Wire, Preoccupations, Fews, Fontaines DC, Idles, Mush, Omni, Parquet Courts, Protomartyr, Shame, Silverbacks, Ought, ... See full review

My first one had the flutter problem but the replacement is nice. No issues at all.

I'm a sucker for this kind of stuff... and it's still available from VMP for $19. (so much for the seller advertising "you will not find it cheaper" for $35)

This is a solid album... fans of this might enjoy Marble Arch ('Children of the Slump')
posted a review of Tame Impala - The Slow Rush. 5 months ago
I find this rather boring and safe. I first heard Tame Impala in early 2010 and saw them later that year. I never imagined they (he) would shift gears to this. It's like they lost a key guitarist/songwriter. I find nothing about this engaging or ... See full review

This is pretty good. Fans of DIIV would probably like this.

If it's a white label then it's a different release and should be added even if the runouts are the same.

Down is a great tune. I saw this band countless times in San Francisco in the mid 90s, along with bands like Creeper Lagoon and Engine 88. Fun times!

Does the label for this match Catherine Wheel - Ferment in both that it's silver/black and has track 1 misspelled as 'Teiture'?
posted a comment on Marble Arch (6) - Children Of The Slump. 8 months ago
This is really quite good. Starts off a little post-punk and reminds me of current bands like Deeper but soon veers off into a more dream pop style.
posted a comment on Led Zeppelin - Houses Of The Holy. 8 months ago
I don't believe I ever found it, and haven't spent any more time on it since I posted this. It sounds like it might need to be added as a new release from what I can deduce without digging out the album.

I'm surprised this isn't more popular. It's pretty solid. .

I don't know what others are hearing at 'Dream at Tempo 119'. Maybe my copy doesn't have it but all I hear is the intended knob tweaking that's supposed to be there that Brian always does live, and the bleeps/bloops. I played my record ('Dream at Tempo ... See full review

I'm sure you likely know this by now but in case it helps anyone else... It's called Rare Groove Pilot and has a different recording of Sunshine Smile. They re-recorded it for Creation. https://www.discogs.com/Adorable-Rare-Groove-Pirate/release/3791617

This has a different recording of Sunshine Smile than their Creation releases, they re-recorded it for Creation. It's a must have! And it's a Porky Prime Cut too!

A very fine post-punk release. Fans of Interpol, Foals, or The Drums may like this.

↓ he's said the same for virtually every reissue by every band ever. It would be more believable if details and examples were provided.

I'm a fan of Garbage but Butch Vig owes Curve (Dean Garcia and Toni Halliday) a nice dinner for stealing their sound.

Mine arrived with the inner, glued on, pink sleeve torn on one edge due to the record edge, as did the replacement they sent. They ran out soon after so I'm stuck with it.
