  1. What's the solution though? Round up all the poc's and force them to make ambient music? It's a niche genre already and I know that Zach/Isaac (the guys who run the label) try very hard to get a diverse lineup, particularly when it comes to getting women's music released physically. You can certainly argue the reasons why it's a genre dominated by white men, but speaking for myself (who personally knows many of the most renowned ambient artists) it's a very welcoming, friendly community and there's certainly no gatekeeping involved. Beyond that, it's not like we're some monolith entity. The ac
  2. Tales Of Ephidrina was a relatively unknown/non-mainstream album, at least compared to the Virgin FSOL albums in the 90s. I think the only ones who really knew/cared about the AA name were the hardcore fans, which I assume is why the boys decided to use that name rather than their much more popular FSOL alias. I think *all* USA copies of The Isness were released as FSOL though, presumably to help sell more copies. That undoubtedly caused a much bigger shitstorm among their fans, as the internet as a whole was a much smaller place in the very early 00s and misinformation was even worse tha
  3. Didn't those initial copies of The Isness have an FSOL sticker on the front? I think that's what probably confused/annoyed their fanbase the most, as they were expecting one thing and got something *very* different entirely.
  4. I genuinely thought this was the album. Turns out it's a companion/prelude EP. And this EP also had a remix 12" that was released BEFORE the EP even dropped? Yeah, this whole thing is a little convoluted for sure, heh.
  5. I genuinely thought it said "I'm the Obi-Wan" when I first heard it
  6. The issue in the video is pretty much something that plagues all the digital distro services and is an unfortunate side-effect of having the entire process automated (or with very few human eyes/ears involved as possible). There's little stopping copyright trolls from doing this, other than sending DMCA's or making sure you have all your music distributed yourself, to prevent others doing it. Relying on Distrokid's customer service (which fucking sucks) to help is going to be a loooooooong battle, as this guy found out, but honestly, this could happen to any distro broker, not exclusive to Dis
  7. Has the vinyl actually shipped yet for anyone? I keep seeing Mark retweeting Bleep's updates saying "shipping now" but I've got no dispatch notices as of yet.
  8. Thanks guys. Last few copies of the vinyl here https://www.juno.co.uk/products/36-wave-variations/780944-01/
  9. Out this Friday! USA: https://pitp.bandcamp.com/album/wave-variations UK/ROTW: https://www.juno.co.uk/products/36-wave-variations/780944-01/ (links will be active upon release) Here's a few glamour pics of the vinyl:
  10. Just a heads up that Juno will have the vast majority of the stock, so order from there on Friday if you want a copy. They offer the cheapest worldwide shipping of any record store on the internet too (something like £4 to ship a 12" record from the UK to the USA... It costs me about £14 in comparison)
  11. Yes, though it's not a real one. It's a deep sampled Legacy 1928 Steinway Scoring Piano, from 8dio. All notes were programmed in MIDI. I use it a lot in my work. One of the prettiest sounding piano's IMO.
  12. Yeah, sadly postage prices rise every April here in the UK. I noticed that international postage in particular has risen dramatically in the last 12 months, likely due to current world circumstances/general Royal Mail greed. I see my invoices for records I sent to people 10 years ago and just laugh at how much more they cost now. I still think $35 isn't *that* bad for a heavy vinyl boxset from the UK to the USA, especially if it's tracked/signed-for. It's certainly much cheaper than it'd cost to send it from the USA to the UK. However, it's the big downside with having single stores have
  13. In terms of postage, do you guys really think $35 is expensive? It's a 7xLP boxset. These things are HEAVY yo. They'll also (hopefully) have a lot of packaging around them, which increases bulk/weight further. Let's put it another way: The guy who releases my music in the USA recently sent me 3 12" vinyl records and 2 12" test presses to me in the UK. It all fit in a musicmax mailer and weighed about 1.3kg (likely about half what this GC boxset will weigh). It cost $65. CD's from the USA to the UK also cost about $20 the last time I bought one.
  14. Thanks guys. Here's some free Bandcamp codes for this release: Redeem at 3six.net/yum
