Giving the turntable a workout. This has been the soundtrack of my night so far.

In light of the album I just got done I figured I’d post a quick picture of my greatest inspirations for chill music, sort of shout out for making me who I am both as a person and musician. These albums mean a lot to me. Not pictured is The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place by EITS and TWDY’s self-titled because I’m dumb and don’t have them yet, Kenotic and Maybe They Will Sing For Us Tomorrow by Hammock, and Realis by A Hope For Home because they don’t exist on vinyl.

look what I found at the mall today tumblr

Sometimes HotTopic is actually worth going to.

RSD had beef with my birthday money.

HEY CASEY. Can I just say that I owe the purchase of this to you. I saw this in a record shop I visited today and thought “Oh, this is that guy that collaborated with King Creosote that Casey showcased in Headphone Music, I guess I’ll check it out”, and I’m BLOWN AWAY AT HOW GOOD THIS ALBUM IS. Like WOW. This album is nearly everything I like in electronica and ambient music wrapped into one package. Probably wouldn’t have given it a second glance if not for you so THANKS.

Hands - Give Me Rest (Black, /150)

A Hope For Home - In Abstraction (Grey Marble, /150)

Just got these in the mail, super stoked. I was technically supposed to get the clear press of Hands but surprise, surprise, merchnow once again mixed my order up. Not even going to bother trying to get the right one because last time they screwed an order up for me I had to send an LP back twice to get one I wanted and it wasn’t even the original color I wanted since it was out of stock, but still being shown as available. Bleh. Really not a fan of Merchnow. I wish Facedown would stop selling through them.


Whew, just spent 2 hours moving my collection list over to CMV but it was well worth it, the info fields and layout of the site are a huge improvement from recordnerd.

This has been sitting at a local record shop for over a year and I finally decided to  use some of my tax return on it.
