  • Who knew Phoebe Bridgers could rock so hard.
    So the first time I listened to Talking Heads Speaking in Tongues reissue it played perfect. Today it was skipping all over the place. A lot of Discogs reviews mention skipping. What gives?

    I’d look at your tracking weight/antiskate if you’ve not had problems before.

    Its only been a week between listens. I'll check out the tracking force. It's a U Turn so I can't adjust anti skate.

    Tracking was at 1.67 perfectly acceptable for a U Turn. Upped it to 1.78 just to see and doesn't seem to be skipping.

    New Weyes Blood song only in Roblox? Maybe I should start paying more attention when my daughter rambles on about this game.
    No regrets about rebuying just about every Taking Heads up from the recent Rhino campaigns. They sound incredible.

    @Turbo they seem to be the same as the 2013 reissued (just color) if that's the ones you're talking about.

    @dbarila I think 2013's are what I have (the ones that had the silver RTI HQ180 stickers), except for 1977 - I think that one is the 2009. Either way, they are all stellar pressings. I had 1980's Canadian pressings of More Songs, Fear Of Music and Speaking in Tongues and they all got blown away by these.

    The top of my wishlist is that the remaining 4 records get the that same remastering treatment...
    I asked in the Discogs thread but figured I'd open to a wider audience. What reliable record mailers does everyone use (for when they've run out of all the good ones to re-use.)
    Anyone else find the Arctic Monkeys live album vinyl very bass heavy?

    I turned my sub down and it sounded better. Unfortunately not close to the sound quality of Live Drugs.
    Why am I just now learning about Mojave 3???

    I may have seen the name in passing in articles about Slowdive but if never clicked that it's pretty much just Slowdive without all the delay pedals.

    Also, don't know why but Rachel Goswell is one of my favorite Instagram accounts right now. She seems like a cool person.
    Watching American Utopia on HBO. This is a lot of fun!

    I saw the placemarker on HBO and read some reviews that said it's real good. I'll have to check it out. It was right next to the RTJ live marker. Should be a fun, if not counterintuitive, back-to-back!

    It’s pretty great, I was hoping they’d release something like this after I saw them on SNL.

    Finally got Kingdom of Rust on vinyl. It sounds pretty good. I don't know what's up with all the Discogs reviews. Doves Doves Doves!

    How did you get this? Did they repress?

    No. My friend just moved and was checking out a local record store and they had a used copy. Cover has some shelf wear. Discs have a lot of markings but it actually played dead silent much to my surprise.
    I love my Android phone...but why is getting Spotify to play right on Android Auto becoming the most difficult part of my day???
    Informal Poll. A box set of albums....store them in the box or out of the box?

    Ok. Apparently I'm the weirdo around here for even thinking about it. 😁

    If I store them separate then that’s just extra space I gotta worry about. Plus, the box sets break up the monotony when looking through your collection. Helps spot things easier too. But you’re right, a bigger pain to get those items out to play.
    What outer sleeves does everyone use when a gatefold is just slightly too big to go into a regular sleeve? Got the new Sufjan, it doesn't look like anything other than an regular gatefold but I just can't get it to go into any sleeves that I have.

    They seem to work well up to the double gatefold 5 panel Paul’s Boutique I had to go with the extra large ones for that and yeah it’s a bit loose but it cover the entire album which is ultimately what I am looking for.

    I find the Mofis are stretchy enough to fit around the larger gate folds. I’ll have to report back on The Ascension, I haven’t washed mine yet.

    Mofi outer sleeves?
    No matter how many times I listen to Mew "And the Glass Handed Kites" it will never get old.
    Asking for a friend (really). Are there any alternatives to a 4x4 kallax? They've had it on order forever and apparently Ikea has major delays.

    I scanned the reviews of that Better Home & Gardens. I'd feel better if I saw one stuffed with records.

    I get scared of stacking up the cubes (I have a 1x2 and 2x2, because I feel though they are very similar to a kallax I get scared it will break

    Walmart! The better homes and garden ones are what I use. I love them.
    I seriously don't think I ever have an 80 minute block of time in a day to spin a record. Why Sufjan???

    I like long albums (if they win me over). Cause then it’s like a crazy journey from start to finish. Haven’t heard new Suf yet but I think I have faith he can do it? Age Of Adz is long but honestly my favorite album by him. I love getting to Impossible Soul at the end. It’s one of my favorite album closers period.

    Age of Adz is my favorite Sufjan album as well. My only real problem with long albums is my limited spinning time each day. For the record, 5 songs into the new one and I'm REALLY liking it so far!

    @dbarila yep I get it. I gotta specifically find and set aside time for something that’s over an hour. And that’s mostly weekends. But those times of listening to something long all the way through is a nice treat...when it happens.
    Is that actually Moses Sumney in Xfinity Mobile commercials or just someone that looks and sounds like him. My mind can't decide.

    Where did you find it? I looked all over and couldn't find any confirmation. Seems like an odd career choice to cover "Go Your Own Way" in a commercial for a giant corporation. But I guess in a pandemic ya gotta pay the bills.

    I found the video online, but it’s 100%. Unless they stole his appearance.
