    Upcoming Concerts

    Seeing the dreampop band Winter on August 15th. I literally found out about this band like 2 hours ago. Can't argue with a ticket for $12.50 (including fees). July though September is looking alright for me.

    What Videogame(s) Are You Playing Right Now?

    Far Cry 5 completed. I wish the story was as good as the ideas of the story that are present in the soundtrack. There's a huge disconnect that's very Far Cry and very jarring. I think they had a chance to tell a really cool and relevant story and chose the route of... well not doing that. Playing Nier: Automata now.

    2018 Vinyls - April 6th

    I agree with the Loser Anthems thoughts - I rate those songs pretty highly. The tour that could have been...

    2018 Vinyls - April 6th

    I feel so lucky I got them all on release day. They sound great. I'm especially impressed with Audio and I am hearing my favourite album in a whole new light. Some of the more subtle and ambient sounds (think the outro vocals in Advertising, the reverb on the guitars in the Fall of Man, some of the phaser on the guitar in Influence, the background "have me some gun" in chorus 3 of Protest Song) and the more powerful moments of the record (the final "if this is us in control of our selves", "love's not enough", "no pain, no gain, no pain") really really stand out and it just makes me really happy.

    I uploaded pics of the interior stuff. All the lyrics are one of the sleeves, credits on the other. The song title Near Fantastica is not bolded like the rest of the titles lol Edit: I uploaded pics to the folder I previously linked in case anyone was confused about that.

    Avalanche album art is the same as the initial limited edition run (despite what Amazon shows!) and I am pretty sure is the same tracklisting as that release, but I'm not about to pull my copy out of the frame it's in. Double gatefold. If anyone is concerned about buying an original run of the Avalanche vinyl on ebay or something later on, the current release has the musicvaultz logo on the backside and that will be an easy way to distinguish it. Audio is NOT a double gatefold, despite it being a 2LP release. 3 songs per side, in album order. Black cover. Album art is the same as the CD release with some of the images rearranged on the disc sleeves and one new piece of art as well. Loser Anthems/Lo-fi is basically what you see on the store page plus some new art for the disc sleeve. Here's a link to a google drive folder with some pictures I took of the new art for Audio/Loser Anthems and the images in the centre of the discs themselves! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1k8q80rHs9P9cwjHcNDAkQ5c3DE31lF1Q?usp=sharing Edit: the store page for Avalanche says "Bright End To Nowhere" but the record shows the correct title. Edit 2: Audio plays at 45 RPM, Avalanche/Loser Anthems and 33 1/3

    I pre-ordered via Amazon and they got delivered today. I'll snap some pics when I get home from work if anyone wants to see.

    2018 Vinyls - April 6th

    I honestly haven't listened to any MG since about 2 or 3 weeks after SLAS was released, but I'm already emotional about hearing remastered Audio of Being, and while I was planning on only getting the AoB/Loser Anthems vinyls, the thought of hearing Weapon/Avalanche/Near Fantastica/Bright End/HoSAM on the new vinyl was too tempting, so why not? The Hospital Music and BM remasters gave me a whole new appreciation for those albums, both of which I've listened to hundreds of times, so I'm looking forward to hearing what tiny little bits I can pick out of these new ones.

    Obscure Audio of Being Packaging Question

    I just checked because I had easy access to the discs at my house. Kept (black) in the (grey) Dark (white) That stuff is on the spines. Under the disc is just crew/recording info. On the inside of the spine, it says "help us get rid of the Matthew Good Band" which I either never noticed or completely forgot about. There is no difference in the content of the booklet or what's under the disc in any of the 3 versions. I believe "A Pleasurable Headache" came with the first X number of copies sold, and those versions may have also had a cardboard sleeve to put the disc + Headache together, but if that's the case, I know I lost my sleeve years ago.

    What Videogame(s) Are You Playing Right Now?

    My first playthrough on normal difficulty was probably about 8 hours or so. Then I played it again on easy with a guide to collect all the collectible stuff and that was probably about 5 hours. I barely ever complete a game and then restart it right away to do that kind of stuff. I'm back into playing Horizon Zero Dawn now that the DLC is out. Starting a New Game+ run, but doing it on Very Hard (I did normal on my vanilla playthrough). I am not really good at this game any more, but I'm excited to re-learn it. Gonna have to get good so I can do an Ultra Hard NG+ run to get the trophy for that. (I barely every play games on their hardest difficulty - I've finished Mass Effect 2 on Insanity once and one of the CoD on the hardest difficulty once).
