  1. Indeed. Thanks for the recommendation!
  2. Instabought all, 45 reissue if Plantasia should be great. Not sure how much it will improve the listen considering the recording, but I’m in anyway.
  3. Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics, took on a PhD in Solar Physics afterwards before realizing none of it mattered because I couldn’t see myself dedicating 40+ years to essentially being a student. So I left it all behind and sought out a new career, primarily something like accountancy. Now I’m a part qualified actuary working for a large US insurance firm and have been for almost 4 years now. Should’ve made the change sooner tbh.
  4. This and the prior two albums have been on repeat for the past couple of weeks. Amazed I never heard of them until now, because they’re right up my alley. Think I like them for the same reason I like American Football, except these guys are a lot more heavy handed.
  5. Never heard of this band until I saw this thread. Dope af. Not one bad track on this album.
  6. I have the vinyl releases, so don't need these. PM me and I'll fire them on. Edit 1: Oscillation 2 has been taken. Edit 2: Both codes are gone.
  7. Me. Mostly for 30-45 minutes a day, but it’s chill. No pressure either.
  8. Artists wise: Autechre Bob Dylan (although more prolific with bootleg sets these days) EOD Stephen Malkmus Thurston Moore Aleksi Perala Radiohead Rolando Simmons Swans There’s probably more, but all of the above warrant instabuys for me. The only label I probably buy anything regardless of release is Polytechnic Youth, because the new releases are always cheap, and well varied.
  9. I hate 90% of the people in my office floor and I get to spend all day listening to records whilst working. Not the worst outcome for me at least.
  10. Definitely one of those artists where I'll cop anything they release. Highly recommended.
  11. The Beatles - White Album The Beatles - Revolver Pink Floyd - Animals Captain Beefheart - Trout Mask Replica Autechre - Quaristice Kraftwerk - Computer World My Bloody Valentine - Loveless The Other People Place - Lifestyles of the Laptop Cafe Sonic Youth - Washing Machine Swans - Soundtracks for the Blind All top tier for me. And I can’t choose one VU album, I need them all.
  12. The Beatles in Mono vinyl box set. Give me all the hate you want, they've never sounded better.
  13. Interested in the binder, but sure how much I care about it when I could just have a bunch of the 12"s for way cheaper.
  14. Norman Records are the best. I've been a stasher with them for about 3 years, but I've been with them for much longer than that. Customer service is second to none, and the packaging has always been superb. On the contrary, I've never had an issue with Bleep, and I think they've only improved over the years.
  15. I hated the second half at first. But now, I think it makes a lot of sense, and it's a natural follow up (or new beginning) from The Glowing Man. It was weird not having the crescendo build-ups at first, but I think this is the most focused album they've done in a long time compared to the sprawling nature of the trilogy albums released before this one. And that's no criticism to those albums, they're fantastic, but it's nice to hear Gira achieving more than he did on White Light... and Love of Life. The Necks are superb too (title track and The Nub).
