It's the basic Audio Technica turntable

It's a pretty cool little machine and at that price you could buy one every year and it would still be worth it. IMO.
Thanks for the recommendation, just got this over the weekend, it looks nice and sounds great. My only complaint is that the audio cable is short as hell. It's like a foot and a half. I'll need to purchase an extension.

Why So Blu?, since you like the Drive soundtrack you should check out the album Night Drive by the Chromatics. The track "Tick of the Clock" appears in an edited form on the Drive soundtrack. It's a pretty good synth-pop album that features a great cover of "Running up that Hill" by Kate Bush.

I remember trying to look up some of those bands from the soundtrack around the time the film came out but lost track down the line. Thanks for reminding me. I love synth-pop, new wave, dance, etc., and more the same would be awesome. Good looking out!

No problem. Yeah, I hear ya about the phono chord. I had no problem, but an extension should be ok. Amazon will have those or Radioshack.

No problem. You would probably like a lot of the stuff that the label Italians Do It Better releases. They specialize in synth-pop, New Wave and Dance stuff.

No idea who that is but the cover is real good.

I picked up this Stiv Bators LP. We used to listen to this ALL the time back in the day.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

The latest Black Rebel Motorcycle Club finally arrived in the mail today. I've been having a lot of trouble lately when ordering records from Amazon.UK. Seems there's always shipping delays. Anyway, the album's fantastic (I've been listening to it on Spotify since it was released...)

Cool. On that label you and Why So Blu? should check out Glass Candy's B/E/A/T/B/O/X LP. Refn used their song "Digital Versicolor" a few times in Bronson.

I'm assuming you're familiar with Bronson.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

The Scandinavian release of Ghost's latest album Infestissumam on clear vinyl arrived today. They really knocked it out of the park with regards to the packaging and artwork. I was also able to score the 7" for their single "Year Zero" on clear green vinyl which arrived today as well. I think I filled the cup.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Got a classic in da house!



Also a bonus that it's a 180 gram remaster.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

An actual remaster or just a new edition of the existing master?

Not sure. I don't have it in front of me, but the label on the upper left hand corner seemed to say that it was remastered from the original analog masters.

???


I'll check when I get home.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I guess they're mastered from the original analog tapes?

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Ah, yeah, so not a remaster. Still, probably sounds better than the CD (although the regular issue Tom Waits CDs all sound pretty good).

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I screwed up and bought ticket for Oblivion tomorrow morning at 10am, so I will be a couple of hours late to RSD. :/

Here's hoping there will be stuff left for me at noon.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I'm not going to make it out for RSD, but I'm a huge Pulp fan, so I had a friend pick this up for me this morning:



(Despite me likely hearing these songs digitally long before I will on vinyl; my Technics have been in storage for years. I'll dig them out someday.)

I'm heading out to Amoeba in a bit. Got movies to trade in and some RSD stuff to buy!
