    Hi Everyone,

    I wanted to create a new thread where we can have all information about past, current and future VMP Rising pressings. We'll be posting announcements, content and all pressing info here, while also keeping them in the store picks sheet with all necessary info (pressing amount, date on sale, etc.) Also, please feel free to post suggestions if you think there's a band right on the break that's killing it right now!

    GONNA REFRESH THIS SH*T:

    <>JANUARY 2018<>
    Deem Spencer - We Think We Alone (Transparent Blue Vinyl, LTD to 500) (MUSIC) ($19) *On Sale 1/29*

    Sweet! Thanks for the info homie

    Can I ask a question? It may have already been answered but I have been off the forums for a bit. Are the VMP rising releases exclusives like the monthly exclusives? As in, are they VMP only exclusives?

    Thanks for the info

    Yep! They're pressings we're doing with them specifically so VMP exclusive (with a portion being given to the artist to use themselves)

    Awesome, thank you for that. I'm one of those weirdos who likes to collect all the VMP exclusives so it just gives me more to buy. HAHAHA! Nothing wrong with that.

    Posting so I can get notifications, but also you guys knocked it out of the park with Moses Sumney. I saw him open up for Sufjan Stevens, and by the time he was done everyone in the venue looked like they had just finished a vision quest

    I really love what you are doing with this. I think this is going to be my favorite part of the store from now on.

    Seriously, the guy just stood there with his guitar and melted everyone's faces for an hour. And after the show everyone was trying to google to figure out who he was, because none of us caught his name but we all wanted to hear more. His stuff is simple and sad, but there's so much emotion...kinda the same reason I love Laura Nyro so much.

    How would one describe Moses Sumney to someone stuck at work and can't listen to any samples?

    I also have seen Moses Sumney at Eaux Claires (his own set and he joined James Blake during his set) and wow!!! I was blown away by him. Knew nothing about him going in and afterwards I'm sure I looked exactly like what @Phillip J Phry is describing! This is a must buy for me

    EDIT: Sorry I meant what @Heath described

    I ordered the first one a few days ago on a whim, but I am really excited for the second!

    I'm sold based upon this anecdote alone. Thanks @Heath

    Michael Penn II, one of the writers for the VMP Mag, told me Moses Sumney is the only act he saw at Pitchfork that like scared him at how good he was. I trust that dude's tastes in these matters.

    Someone (@Eric) photoshop @thestorfer's head onto the little kid on the Mercury Rising movie poster and then change the name to "VMP Rising".
