AL CISNEROS IS MY SPIRIT ANIMAL
So you can't cancel The Vault if they charged you already? Ugh.
No point in doing so for a few months otherwise, so I can still get the 10% if I so chose.
Anyone know Rough Trade's Jan AOTM?
Feb 2019 Secretly Society release on opaque sunburst vinyl.
Have people received their December White Label Series record yet?
They are delayed. Supposed to ship “soon”.
Has anyone received concert tickets from SS? I think that is/was offered on occasion to members. (but possibly US only.)
I think you just email in and ask if there are any guest spots available
I've been put on guest lists for a couple of UK shows in the past, so you might be in with a chance but there could potentially be a language barrier preventing it, but yeah you need to email them and they'll get back to you!
I've been checking twitter but no one has spoiled yet that I can see.
Album of the Month - January 2019
The Delines - The Imperial
Rough Trade Exclusive 180 Gram Clear Vinyl in a Gatefold Sleeve with Bonus 7" of two unreleased tracks and Bonus CD feat. extras from "The Imperial Sessions".
Nearly 5 years after the release of their first and only album, the Portland, Oregon retro-country soul masters The Delines return with The Imperial, a fully realized country-soul anthology of under-class, provincial America.
The break was never intended to be so long, but after Amy Boone was hit by a car in Austin, TX the other band members supported the lead-singer through her recovery and rehabilitation before creating their sophomore album.
Much like Colfax, The Imperial draws on the dark and seedy underbelly of the States (lonely bars, violent men and living out of cars) but Boone's warm, maternal voice is sympathetic not derisive. In fact, it's Boones vocals, along with the character-led lyrics, that set the foundations for ten vignettes about hard-living, hard-drinking, flawed but ultimately romantic American heroes.
The two lead singles Holly The Hustle (the story of a con artist, brought up and abandoned by a failing alcoholic horse-breeder) and Eddie and Polly (two people in the throes of a toxic yet addictive relationship in deep Louisiana) set the tone for the album.
Boone is supported by a subtle chorus of slide guitars, electric pianos and gospel choirs. The brass is littered throughout the record releasing the songs from their sleepy tale origins to their soul ballad potential. Mellow and atmospheric making the whole affair very intimate.
So come on in to The Delines' roadside bar, get yourself some rye and let the landlady tell you about the characters that come and go. The gritty, oft-forgotten Americans, the Americans of the past, the present and the future.
Are you sure this is the Merge 30 AOTM? I'm seeing multiple AOTMs at this link, including that one.
I thought he was asking about the Rough Trade Record of the Month, I don't know about Merge 30.
Merge 30 doesn't announce the ROTM ahead of time, so you find out when you open your package. Some people have gotten theirs already, but no one's posted anything yet that I can see. Closest that I could find was this.
Figures. It just arrived for me!
It also has a nice split unfortunately.
Damn that sucks!
Thanks for the update. I get the complete package at the end of the year so it is interesting to know what will be coming
Magnolia subscribers, you see that the records are now being curated by different artists instead of just Drew Holcomb. Wild Child was curated by Shakey Graves and Maggie Rogers was curated by Brandi Carlile.
