  1. 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.
  2. I genuinely thought it said "I'm the Obi-Wan" when I first heard it
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. Thanks guys. Last few copies of the vinyl here https://www.juno.co.uk/products/36-wave-variations/780944-01/
  6. 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:
  7. 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)
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. Thanks guys. Here's some free Bandcamp codes for this release: Redeem at 3six.net/yum
  12. As someone who had their own hosting/site before Bandcamp (and sometime during) I'd say moving everything to BC still works out much much cheaper, especially once you earn enough to be on the 10% revenue share. Honestly, BC taking a 10% share is more than reasonable for the quality of life upgrades they bring. No more messing around with host cpanel's, store modules and making sure everything is tagged properly etc.. Just upload, add info, done. It also brings all the users on the BC platform to your attention too. Much easier for fans to be notified of new releases by people following yo
  13. FSOL, I love you, but I really wish you would move over to Bandcamp already
  14. Yep, I made both! The playlist is more tongue-in-cheek, whereas the release itself is obviously a bit more serious. Listen to both is my suggestion ?
  15. Thanks for posting! It's actually a full EP rather than a single track. Free/pay what you want. Cheers!
  16. 3 was ok, but felt like a completely different sound compared to the first 2 releases. Xerrox 1 & 2 are absolute classics.
  17. It's pretty much how I feel every time I see electronic artists try to adapt their albums for live acoustic/classical ensembles. Most just come off as really cheesy and often highlights how simplistic the actual arrangements are. Weirdly though, the live version of 14 31 they performed as "Lament" was actually really good! Probably because it skipped the brass section, heh.
  18. Out now! USA/digital: https://pitp.bandcamp.com/album/stasis-sounds-for-long-distance-space-travel UK/ROTW: https://juno.co.uk/artists/36/ ?
  19. Oops, yep! I'm constantly mixing those two labels up, which is silly because they're a world apart in quality.
  20. The key take for me is that this Vinyl On Demand label didn't even think to ask the artists about reissuing it first. Just straight up used their previous contract (which is no doubt in perpetuity, like all major labels) and pressed it. And of course, the record stores don't even think to ask where it came from either. I doubt a penny of this will go to the artists. Sad for Tom and Mark. Imagine going through the effort of planning an anniversary edition of one of your most celebrated records, going through the effort of getting it remastered from DAT, organising remixes by other artists
  21. Available to pre-order on Past Inside The Present now. Release day is 31st January. https://pitp.bandcamp.com/album/stasis-sounds-for-long-distance-space-travel 12" vinyl (2 color variants) cassette tape and digital. Juno will have all the rest of the stock available from here which will be the cheapest solution for everyone outside the USA Some random packages will have some 1991 Space Ventures 'Space Shots’ trading cards included ?
  22. The manufacturer I usually use says that lighter transparent colours (inc pure transparent clear) often have a 5db increased noise floor. Opaque colours, particularly darker ones like blue, brown etc.. They tend to sound closer to black in terms of overall quality. Honestly though, the whole vinyl manufacturing process is such a roll of the dice that anything can sound crap. White vinyl is without question the worst in my personal experience though. One single company (if you can even call it that) controls all the pellets in the world apparently. I think they have a patent on it, or some
