I’m now five records away from a thousand pieces of vinyl. #superchunk #hereswherethestringscomein #recordcountdown

I just realised I’m 6 records off of owning a thousand pieces of vinyl. That’s a hell of a lot of music for one person to have access to.

If you’re going to see The Smith Street Band make sure to check out the merch. They’ve a lot of beautiful records to top your collection up with, which also sound amazing!

Coming up next! The Modern Farewell - Long Time Coming! Limited to just 60 copies. Release date will be on April 4th, and even though I said I was done with preorders, I gots a load of releases that need paying for besides this so I guess there WILL be a pre-order for this in the next few weeks. More news soon!

Not even joking though, this album is going to absolutely blow you away. It’s soo good. I’ve been listening to it constantly over the past few days since they sent me the masters and for those who don’t know me well I USUALLY HATE EVERYTHING. Not this though. This is melodic punk / pop punk done fucking right. Poppy enough for the youngsters, punk enough for the oldies. It’s great. Maybe I’m being bias? Maybe fuck you!?
FFO: The Lawrence Arms crossed with The Get Up Kids, or something?
If yer really punk and / or my good mate / want to be my mate pls tell yer best mate about this band / reblog this post. Every little helps. DIY TIL WE FUCKIN’ DIE.

Why I Buy Vinyl

Wrote this in response to a friends question on Facebook, felt it belonged here as well:

I buy vinyl for several reasons, firstly at 12/13 (I forget exactly) my Dad announced that I had some savings and it was time I used that money to buy a stereo system, so off to the local electrical shop we went and I bought my first stereo, all I cared about was having two tape players, CD players were only just becoming a thing so this system didnt have one, it did have a turn table though; so when I started buying music it was logical to buy vinyl and so thats what I did and never really stopped. Didn’t give two shits about weight/colour etc at the time, I just enjoyed the big artwork and being able to listen to it in my room.

Fast forward and now I see it as a more relaxing way to listen to music, there is something I love about pulling an LP out of my collection, taking it from the sleeve and listening to it on my turntable, you can’t skip tracks so easy so you listen to the whole thing as the artist intended. I also love different packaging, where people have taken a real effort into how something looks and feels as well as sounds.

I own a fair few CD’s and some have really ace packaging but with the size of vinyl you can do so much more.

Bit ashamed to say, as a fairly long time Boy Sets Fire fan I haven’t heard this before. Looking forward to getting home and spinning this!
