Entombed is Entombed, what else can I say. Maybe not the one of the greatest record this band has done but surely it’s still rough diamond compared to punch of other bands & their records. Entombed has always been so close to my heart that I just can’t say anything bad about their records. Few years ago this album was repressed with crowd funding like few other their records. I had a copy of that repress but some evil force […]
Time to break the silence. Have to admit that I haven’t been very active with this blog of mine lately but I’m still here. This was the very first album that arrived to my household at 2018, Richard Houghten’s beautiful folktronica/acoustic album called “Along The Coast”. Some of you already know that I’m a big fan of his music and I have been quite lucky with purchasing his albums (very limited pressings). I knew from the very first tune I […]
This was the very last record that I got last year (arrived on Friday 30.12.2016). Goat’s latest album that I skipped earlier just because there was too many records on my wishlist at that time. Well, now I got this one just because Rocket Recordings got some copies available again and I had to snag a copy. I’m happy with this one, like I’m with those previous two albums. I know that this album needs some time, it’s like an […]
Oh. What a beauty this one is. Can’t stop listening.. I even love the picture on the cover of the album. Is this alternative folk-rock or something but who cares when every song sounds this damn good. This duo, Belinda Kordic on vocals and Justin Greaves (from Crippled Black Phoenix) has done beautiful record. Recommended with a hand on my heart. No info about limitation but still available from Kscope. And about shipping & packaging.. this came shipped very fast […]
Hello old friend, nice to see you around again! I have been waiting this record to arrive few days now and today was The Day. I have loved this band since I first came across their album “Gentlemen” (what a brilliant record!) and I never thought that they are going to release anther album but as usually, I was wrong. Of course I had to purchase this and even without listening this yet I know I’m in love again. Maybe […]
Here is one of those records from my past. I still remember how this album touched my heart at the time I was taking my first steps towards the adulthood, moving away from my childhood home etc. Excellent record and now I had a chance to get this on vinyl format, at last. This is repress from Music On Vinyl and I choose to purchase this because I just wanted a pristine copy, not used one from Ebay or Discogs. […]
I was visiting my mom today and picked this one from local record store. This band has always been one of my favorites, and all their records has been on my “wanted” list. Well, no I just had to buy this. Lovely. I love this band. This is not so-called “collector’s item” but so what, I buy music for listening. Recommended.
Oh, and this is one of these new arrivals, Sebadoh and their latest album “Defend Yourself” (previous album came out 14 years ago). I have to admit that Sebadoh is new band to me, I used to listen bands like Pavement, Sonic Youth etc. and somehow never really came across with these gentlemen. Hey Sebadoh, it’s nice to meet you finally! This one (tricolor) is limited to 500 hand-numbered copies and suddenly it’s already sold out (limited edition, in my […]
Holy Moses, this was total surprise for me. I found this from Bandcamp and I’m glad I did. This band is floating somewhere between psychedelic rock and maybe.. doom? There’s a story behind this recording and if you are interested about it, you know how to find it. Self-released and limited to 200 copies. Sold out from their BandCamp site and could be little hard to find anywhere but you can try to get this from HHV.
Got this one from Discogs, long lost friend. This was released by Denovali way back and I did not managed to purchased this those days (do not even know why). Finally I got this, even though it took some time. This was limited to 500 copies (250 on clear yellow and 250 on black vinyl). Denovali has sold this out long time ago. If you are after this you should try Discogs or you should just google this out. Lovely […]
Somehow I personally do not like Record Store Day. Well, I managed to get this album though (this was on my wantlist anyways). Lovely record, demo/rough version of their awesome album “Deserter’s Songs”. I was so pissed about whole RSD-thing that I bought myself The Vampyre Hearse by Lego (my Lego virginity is now gone, and actually I bought it for some one else but I had to test my lego-building skills).
And of course I have this one. If you are familiar with Steve Albini and his bands (Shellac, Rapeman and Big Black) you might know that as a big fan I must have these records. Lovely boxset and this should be still quite easy to find from any good record store.
And some may have noticed that Polly is also one of my favorite artists. Love this album too, and “Black Hearted Love”.. oh I love that song so much. Lately I haven’t listen very much of her records but she certainly will always have that little corner on my heart, always. This record should be still available from any good record store, go and get one copy.
And here it is, the winner! Even though this ain’t the original copy (but 2010 unofficial release) I still damn love this album! Record full of awesome songs and so dark and hopeless. Original vinyl version is so damn expensive that I have to settle with this one. This is The Album. And there is, nor never will be song like “Black Wings”
And this EP holds in my opinion the greatest song ever; “Who Will Love Me Now?” I have been a big fan of Polly Jean forever and when I heard this song first time.. it is so sad and hopeless.. Awesome song.Thanks Polly and John, you have made my life more miserable than it was before :D Absolute love!!
And yet / once again one great release from Denovali. I just can’t figure how Denovali does what it does, releasing great albums one after other. Iroha has turned out to be one of my favorite bands. This is limited to 100 copies on grey/solid gold, 100 copies on clear gold and 300 copies on black vinyl. Clear gold and black copies are still available from the source, Denovali.
Suddenly I realized that this is one of my favorite albums. This might be (if I remember right) the first album from Denovali releases that I purchased.. Seems that this is limited to 500 copies, 250 on clear and 250 copies on half clear/half brown vinyl. I have no idea where to find this vinyl anymore, this seems to be sold out from Denovali. Highly recommended one.
And this jewel also came today. Few weeks ago I was in right place in the right time (on my computer late at night) and saw tweet about Isis vinyls available from http://www.realtomatoketchup.com And here it is, Robotic Empires edition of this fine album, first press and limited to 300 copies on this color. Nice. Indeed. There was little dents on few corners of the record but so what! Love.
This arrived about 20 minute ago. Ordered this through their websop few weeks ago. God how long time it has been since I have listened this band. I was lucky enough to get this one because they sold this out quite fast from their site. This is 180g vinyl, numbered and limited to 1000 copies. And what about the music.. well, I’m not that impressed of this, sorry for those who love this record. Maybe this opens for me with […]
This came today. Reminds me of my teenager years when I use to listen this kind of music, a lot. I had a possibility to purchase this and so I did. This was limited to 200 copies?? maybe too little pressing and now it’s sold out. If some one fancy a copy, there might be some at Ebay and Discogs but be warned, prizes are high!
The reason why I wanted this collection was mainly Sonic Youth’s version of “Superstar”. I never was so big fan of Sonic Youth but their version of this beautiful song.. pure love! I still use to listen this song time to time, just to realize how years go by but I don’t grow up :) Lovely compilation indeed.
It’s been little quiet month.. just moved to another town and I have been little slow on buying records or anything. But this was in my letterbox yesterday. Interesting little record. Even though I’m not a big fan of Converge, this time J. Bannon surprise me in good way. This is limited to 400 copies on white vinyl exclusively from his website (seems to be sold out..) but Deathwish is releasing this on “coke bottle blue” vinyl in near future.
Shellac’s second full length, beautiful record (but not that good as “At Action Park” is ). Been amazed Albini’s stuff for years now, Rapeman, Big Black and last but not certainly least, Shellac. This album should be available from any good record store, it’s not that rare :)
This is fine album. Everyone has right to feel differently, but I personally love this album. There’s something haunting in this record, i just can’t explain that. Maybe it’s just his personal way of singing etc. This should be available nearly anywhere. So, what are you still sitting there?
Single from one of the best bands in Finnish music scene as I know. Radiopuhelimet has always been those Finnish bands I like. This treasure was bought from second-hand record store when I was visiting my mom (visiting home is excellent excuse to visit local second-hand stores and find some treasures like this) :)
As I am a huge fan of Finnish record label Bad Vugum, I bought this one today from second-hand record store also. This is first release of Bad Vugum and surprisingly awesome release from one of my favourite band, Radiopuhelimet! Aaaaaarrgghhh..
Today I found this from local second-hand record store and I have to say that I’m quite happy. This is one of those bands I used to like when I was young, never had this record thou. Now I have :) Ootko sä poika vai tyttö, roughly translated “Are you a boy or a girl”. Excellent once again. I did not found soundclips of this 7″ but here’s something else from this band so you can get a picture what […]
Well, this arrived today. Bought this from Discogs.. not as good condition as seller described (for me Near Mint or M- means that there is no visual marks on cover nor record..) but I can deal with it, fortunately it was quite inexpensive. Great record, been hunting this some time and now I got it, finally.
I have been always huge fan of Finnish underground and this 7″ is great one. Featuring Mauri Antero Numminen, M.A.N. Numminen has been around from 1960’s and this gentleman is has great impact on Finnish music and literature. Larry And The Lefthanded are honored to have him on this great record. Awesome!
