I rate my records always a little lower, even though I store them all in protective cover (PVC) and most of my records also have new anti static inner sleeves. The records I've bought second hand, are all washed professionally.

My copy hasn't got a poster either. Strange though or it might have been forgotten during the production process.

As always, Kompakt Label is first choice in terms of eletronic music and quality. Plain and clean vinyl. No artificial noises. Absolute perfect.

Excellent pressing quality. Sound is dynamic and brilliant. Highly recommended.
posted a review of Au Pairs - Live In Berlin. 7 months ago
Track B2 is written by Bowie and a well known cover version of The Au Pairs.
And by the way, the sound quality isn't as bad as mentioned. It could be a little louder, but that's the only issue. It is real good documentary piece of a far underrated Band.

Yep. It's pretty common these days to get crappy vinyl. Mine has some glue on the records and as a result you here a rhythmic scratchy sound. Awful pressing.

This is such a great album again from Bartosz. It sometimes reminds me on Steve Reich, a little bit of John Cage, Nils Frahm and perhaps Hauschka in a way. A lot of classical moments, chillful and hypnotic timeless music.
