Isis “Live VI” 2xLP

Even though this appears to be limited to 1,000 copies, I’m sure some fans will be clamoring for their copies immediately. So maybe hurry – bluecollardistro.com. Awesome pics of the packaging on Interrobang Letterpress’ flickr.com feed.

Windmills By The Ocean, Red Sparowes, and Isis – A Giant Update from Robotic Empire

This mid-day blast of new vinyl comes courtesy of our good friends at Robotic Empire. First up, “II” from Windmills by the Ocean (ex Isis, Red Sparowes, 27, etc) is a much more expansive, song-based effort than their first album. They’ve even brought vocals to their previously-instrumental jams, fleshing things out considerably. This one covers […]

Isis “Oceanic” 2xLP Repress

We don’t usually post on the weekends BUT when it’s one of our favorite bands (Isis) on one of our favorite labels (Robotic Empire) and the most limited color has already disappeared (oops) then we can make an exception. Apparently this album Oceanic is a pretty big deal. Indeed, it is one of the first […]

Melvins / Isis “split” 12″

In case you weren’t strapped into your computer chair all weekend long, furiously refreshing vinyl message boards, you may have missed the fact that the hotly anticipated new vinyl split from Melvins and Isis was released for pre-order. The BCD was absolutely hemorrhaging copies of this, so much so that they are now fresh out. […]

Greymachine “Disconnected” 2xLP

A fierce transmission from a handful of heavyweight luminaries, most notably Justin Broadrick and Aaron Turner. Don’t expect any post-rock expanse or shoe-gaze gloss, though. This shit is mean, fuzzy and, well… disconnected. 2xLP version finally available from Hydra Head, for now pick up a $22 copy from vacationvinyl.bigcartel.com.

Jodis “Secret House” 2xLP

Looks like Hydra Head has got around to pressing a 2xLP vinyl edition of the debut album from Jodis – a new band with some familiar members. That would be Aaron Turner (of Isis), James Plotkin and Tim Wyskida (both in Khanate). The sound here is not furious or aggressive, but totally subdued music conveyed […]

Isis “Wavering Radiant” 2xLP Pic Disc

Um yeah. This is the fifth time we have posted about this album on this blog. Not much remains to be said. Amazing tunes, amazing artwork. Now fused together for ultimate harmony between sight and sound in the form of 2xLP vinyl picture disc. These imported beauties were previously pretty expensive as I recall, so […]

Isis “Live V” Limited 2xLP

Isis. Now here’s a band that knows how to release some vinyl. If you don’t own at least one Isis record, than you probably aren’t reading this blog. Their live series has been pretty great for the fans who just cannot get enough, and Volume 5 (or V) is looking to be a keeper, seeing […]

Lotus Eaters “Mind Control for Infants” Deluxe 2xLP

Intense packaging on this deluxe vinyl issue of Mind Control for Infants (with an intense price-tag to match). This 2002 album from Aaron Turner, James Plotkin and Stephen O’Malley has been remastered and remixed from the original version on Neurot Recordings. Now pressed on 200-gram direct metal mastered LPs housed in some seriously extravagant packaging […]
