I bet Fiona is going to do a version of the album through her own website and VMP gets some kind of side deal. Maybe a coloured exclusive or some sort of alt artwork. They're trying to sell this a bit too hard if it's it's something that limited.

Think about it. You don't really need to fomo this album so bad if you're the only ones doing it. Just like QOTSA they felt the insecurity that a lot of people wouldn't subscribe if they knew a wide press would be available.

I mean When The Pawn is going to be released. The link for the article on the album has linear notes as part of the URL.

Learning To Embrace The Crazy
Could be they had this essay from "forever ago," realized Pawn wasn't happening, and threw it up on the site since it was already paid for. Either way, what a hilarious debacle. Par for the course I guess.

Does she even have a website? The only thing I can find is a link to a defunct Facebook page. Maybe she's about to go live with one?

or she will just sell it through her label and stores just like every other wide release ever!
Yeah I know nothing about Fiona and her website but I just remember listening to the vinyl emergency podcast where the guy said he has it on very good record that when it drops she's going to do it by herself.

Anyway I really don't know why vmp needs to hush hush this if it's theirs alone and also why they need to try so hard to push it, especially if it's only a very limited number. Therefore I'm sure it's not a very limited number and I have a hunch they're not the only vendor and/or likely won't be able to deliver theirs as quick as the other place might be able to.

Please no one be stupid enough to pay $36 (or $40) for this album. It’s just a repress of an ROTM that actually hung around for quite a while originally and as such is highway robbery. At the very least hang off until the end of the month and do a swapsie for it.
It's been selling for $40 and up on Discogs and Reddit.
Yes, $34 is expensive - BUT how many single LPs are now $30, $35, $40?

I page through the VMP exclusives page, and I see many examples of highly inflated prices.

Wait until the bloody last week of the month and add a track to swap and it’s $23! I got it in the middle last year as a swap a full year after its original release as an AoTM when there was still stock! Don’t buy into FOMO culture!

I actually agree with them on having past essentials higher than when initially offered. They offer a subscription, so if they sell it for $29 after the month has passed, there's no financial incentive for a customer to subscribe.
If they actually gave two shits about that being a member insentiive they’d still be $29 for members and the higher price for non-members. It’s gouging.

i hope i can swap for Tidal at the end of the month
I would say they will put it under swaps. They did the same for Gorillaz and all those other repress.
