New Slingshot Dakota. I love it. Really dark purple, almost opaque, when the light isn't shining through it.

^^Nice, which album/EP? I've still to get something by E!E! on vinyl unfortunately.

Got these the other day, ridiculously happy with them!

EDIT: Plus I just realised my record player has a headphone slot. This is far better than my crappy speakers.

Nice. I haven't listened to any of the other bands' contributions, but The Horror of Riovanes is a brilliant song.

For some reason the embedded image isn't working, so bare with me.

Modern Baseball has a new vinyl out and all the records are pressed different colors. My friend actually released the press through his management company/record label.

You should pick one up at Lame-O Records.

The image code probably isn't working because of the "?1" after the "jpg", try deleting that.

I'll try to pick up a copy once I have all the big things I need to buy for Christmas/band/etc out of the way. I really like Modern Baseball, they seem to be doing well.

Why is it being sold via bandcamp? I didn't even know that was a thing, haha.

Thanks for the help man.

And I'm not quite sure why it's being sold on bandcamp. Modern Baseball is the first band my friend is managing and Sports is the first record his label is putting out. Honestly I'd guess it's because he doesn't have a website yet. I'll ask him if Lame-O records has an actual website next time I talk to him.

No problem!

That's a pretty solid record for a first release.

Yeah, they/he did an awesome job on it. My friend who is Lame-O Records worked his ass off on getting this pressed, getting Modern Baseball shows, and doing all the other behind the scenes work that isn't writing/playing the music.

He loves this and I'm pretty sure he wants to manage bands/do record label stuff for a living. It really shows in the final product.

I would have snatched that up six months ago when I had a job and money.

My friend bought me that, but they sent her the CD instead of the record so now I have to wait.

Once it comes in and I get my own record player for xmas I'll wanna catalog/post my collection. I need to go through it all and stuff.

PS it's not that much. I'm just lazy.

I got this bad boy home not too long ago, so happy!
One of my favorites in the genre from 2012 for sure.

These came today:







Both are 180g.


Oh, and I got an email today saying that my copy of The Upsides shipped today.

I ordered a HtH LP from Runner Up Records in November and never got it, been emailing the guys since the new year only to be ignored.

Just checked their facebook page, apparently this has been going on since July.

It seems like the owner is busy with school and real life at the same time, but man, he really let everything pile up it seems.
#153
I understand that a lot of the people running these small labels have a life outside of the label, but that's a poor excuse for letting things get that far behind. I understand a delay of a couple of weeks if they have a lot going on, but months and months is a bit absurd. I appreciate what they're doing for the independent music scene, but if they can't stay on top of things, maybe they should consider getting out of the business.
#154
From what I've pieced together it seems like just one guy running most of the show, and when Spraynard announced they were splitting he got inundated with orders for their stuff and started working on represses or something.

But yeah like, there's someone on Facebook who's been waiting for at least eight months (at the time the post was made, idr when that was).

I kinda just wanna ask for a refund and see if I can nab that LP from somewhere else.

EDIT: and he's broke: http://runneruprecords.tumblr.com/post/34992117443/runner-up-records-state-of-whatever-address
#155
I definitely understand that it isn't easy, but if you can't get it done, stop doing it. I know that nobody wants to give up on something they want to do, but this is a business. You can't run a business that way, no matter how small it is.
#156
m i cool



an aside:
Dowsing are nice peoples, played my house a few times. I still haven't listened to their full length, but i've kinda been getting out of the punk / skramz scene lately anyway.

uh, probably gonna post here a bit while I attempt to learn more about guitar gear so let me say hi

My name is Alex i'm 25, I play guitar in a few stupid bands and only 1 real band, an old school pop punk emo band called This Is The Year.

swag in da studio

my house



http://thisistheyear.bandcamp.com/

I used to live at Turtle Den a punk house in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We've had Beau Navire, Touche Amore, Cut Teeth, intoitoverit, brave bird, brighter arrows, midwest penpals, prawn, dowsing, i dunno, more stuff....I forget. Now I just play a bunch of guitar, go to school, and work at a bar.

I ordered Cut + Paste from Runner Up last July, nothing. I understand that it may be difficult and financially challenging, but if you're going to give up like that at least close down your store and finish the orders placed. It's not going to get any better if people keep ordering and getting pissed off.
#159
^i just bought that album. i ordered it online so i got to wait before i give it a listen.
I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given.

Nice!

I have a pre-order that I made with RFC on Dec. 11th, I hope it isn't affected by the whole USPS thing.
