    A question for the people who've bought the Will Oldham exclusive. What is the pressing like? I see it's mostly a very quiet recording so any background noise could be very annoying. Does it sound great? Can you recommend it?

    Shocked no one has mentioned the tea party out of my hometown of Windsor ontario. Their first album ‘splendor solis’ which was amazing was just released on 2lp tan color with a cool etching on 4th side. I picked it up at a local couple weeks ago. Sounds great.

    I am happy with it. The songs are for the most part quiet and I am happy with how quiet the pressing is, but I am not an audiophile.

    Exactly. I didn’t realize I needed this until this conversation started, but now I definitely need this.

    I got my package today with William Bell and Darryl Banks included which I did not order as I already have them. Are these the extra gift records people were talking about?

    Also wasn't the Julien Baker Sprained Ankle advertised as the orange with purple splatter? Mine was the solid orange.

    Ok. Maybe I'm getting it mixed up with the Perfume Genius since I bought at the same time.

    It's just kinda chaos theory at this point I think in terms of shipping. @craigdino swapped the second they opened, and somehow got the original record, instead of his swap. I think @Lacubrious got a double if not triple order of all of his records, and @TCell got his order and five other partial shipments of the same order.

    There is a vinyl release. I think it is from 7 or 8 years ago, but it always seems to be between 55 and 70 bucks Canadian. I have never been able to pull the trigger on it. Such a great album though. Been hoping for a more reasonably priced release for some time now.

    Lupe Fiasco's new album has a vinyl release out now. Any chance of it popping up on the VMP store?

    Mine is dead quiet. Such a peaceful record to wind down to at night.

    That album was impossible to find in America.

    A few years ago, I found myself humming it after not having heard it since 1998. Only place I could find it was from a Canadian seller on eBay. One of the best eBay purchases I ever made.

    Around the same time I also bought the Big Sugar album with "Better Get Used To It." Same story.

    Now I think I have to seek out Canadian copies of Matthew Good Band's "Underdogs" and "Beautiful Midnight." The track listings were unfortunately different here in the US (when you could even find a copy at all).

    HELP ME OUT HERE, CANADIAN MUSIC FANS.

    I have been desperately trying to track down a song/band for about 20 years. Every couple of months I attempt this search, and have come up with nothing.

    I cannot remember the name of the band, or the song, as I somehow managed to miss that information every time I saw it aired (usually on The Wedge).

    Here's the best information I can give:

    1. I am fairly certain one of the band members was a woman, though a man was the main vocalist
    2. The lyrics toward the end of the song are "on their way" or "on our way" over and over again as the music fade out
    3. Despite the upbeat sound of the music (which very much reminds me of Unrest), there was a creepy, creepy puppet (either the sun or the moon) that was ominously laughing at the end of the video

    Any information would be helpful, I have been here with Google for a few hours and it's a losing battle for me!
