Hey all! I’m very excited and honored to welcome everyone to Vol. 7 of the Needles & Grooves AOTM, selected by yours truly. I first want to thank everyone who has helped to get this forum to where we are now, as without them this opportunity would not exist. This homegrown record club has become one of the most rewarding aspects to the new forum and I am so happy to be part of it. Our curation so far has been very diverse and exceptional and I hope that I can continue that trend! I do not expect everyone to love the album that I’ve chosen (that would be impossible), but I hope that at the very least everyone will give it a chance and try to appreciate it and hear what I hear in it.

I intend to announce the album on December 25th (Christmas! ^_^), though that is always subject to change depending on how things line up and other various factors. Until then, let’s have fun and try our best to make this thread a wonderful little slice of chaos! I look forward to sharing what all I have in store with y’all and hope that I do not disappoint.

Let’s get this show on the road!

This is an alien right? Aliens are in the sky? This alien is exploding? So it's Explosions in the Sky - The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place
I saw them play in a tiny nightclub once around the time this came out. It was my favourite nightclub in Manchester, Satan’s Hollow. It had a circular dance floor/stage with a large devil hovering over it. Because the stage was circular the crowd surrounded the band which was kinda cool!
