drowning in vinyl records, pls send help

What up! I haven’t filmed a vinyl haul in
a minute, probably because I haven’t filmed anything in a minute, so guess how
many records I have stacked up ready to share with you today?
It’s not good for the pocketbook but it sure is good for the mind. Pocketbook… why is that the word my brain chose…? Anyway- Do you want to see some records? *to the tune of Do You Want To Build A Snowman?* Do you want to see some records… I didn’t need them all… Sorry, did it get darker in here? I
accidentally said the word shelf and then sang the entire Jonas Brothers song
“Shelf” to myself before I noticed what I was doing. I will not be sharing that
recording with you. Instead I will be sharing some beautiful records with you.
If you have picked up anything cool in the last nine months, let me know below
because I’m clearly always looking for more vinyl that I don’t need, so share
with me your cool pressings so that I know where to throw my money that I need
for other things but I will spend on vinyl. Also hey, a cool thing that happened in the time I was not filming so nobody knows… I started a store. It’s
called Camp Unlost, this is a shirt from it but I also sell vinyl, which is why
I’m telling you this. I actually bought – I bought a bunch of the records for myself.
I put them up for sale and then I bought them, which is not how you’re supposed to
run a business but I did buy them for full price because I just wanted them
and like I already knew they were cool pressings because I only stock cool
pressings. Anyway I’ll start with those ones just to get them out of the way
they’re really cool. Okay so the first one that I picked up from my own store
is Calpurnia’s album “Scout”. You may know Calpurnia. Finn Wolfhard is in the show
“Stranger Things” but he’s also in this band and they are fantastic and Canadian.
And you should check out this record for sure, they’re like teenagers and they’re
great. It’s pressed on… I believe this was
called swimming pool blue, it really is swimming pool blue. It looks like there’s
like water – oh yeah, that’s a better angle, there you
go. It’s a pretty one, I really like it. I actually haven’t had a chance to spin –
forgot about the static when I do this – I haven’t actually had a chance to spin
this one yet, the house that we are currently in has no soundproofing so if
I listen to vinyl, the whole house has to hear it so I haven’t actually gotten to
spin a lot of my records lately which is really sad. The next one is a pressing
that I have been obsessed with for years. I actually think I first saw on tumblr
like a really long time ago, so I don’t even – I don’t even think I collected
vinyl back then. I don’t remember, so many years have passed. But it’s Real Friends “Maybe This Place Is The Same And We’re Just Changing.” This is one of my
favorite albums, I have a pressing already but it’s just got the birdhouse
on it, it was like a tour exclusive with a different sleeve and I got the last
copy that they had for the whole tour, which was pretty exciting. But now I have
this one because I was obsessed with this pressing. I thought about it all the
time. I think I used to see it on Instagram a lot too on vinyl accounts
and be like *angry* now it’s mine! It’s a… aw man, there’s like a cool name for
this and I can’t remember what it is but there was like *flips it over* oh my god it’s like a totally different record but they’re both beautiful, I love it so much! This album is really good though, if you don’t like Real Friends, I think this album is a good place to start. I
don’t know, I always say I’m not into pop punk and then everything I say directly
conflicts with that statement so I just don’t know anymore. I’m just gonna stop
saying anything. I like things and I don’t like things and that’s all there
is to it. Next is their new album. I got Real Friends’ album “Composure” which is
also a fantastic album. I really liked this one. I was hopeful because I really liked the first single “From The Outside”
and then the album was fantastic so hey, that’s always really fun when that
happens. So this one is actually – it’s a gatefold, lots of birds if you like birds. Lots of birds, but then the pressing itself is kind of like the Calpurnia… no
it’s not really, oh my god I forgot how beautiful this was, look at that pressing, gotta get some of that light on there. Ooooh ahhhh, THAT is a pressing.
Okay, that doesn’t mean – they’re all a pressing, am I okay? I really like this
one, it’s so well marbled. We all know my long history with splatter records
that don’t splatter, marble records that don’t marble… look my luck has changed!
And I got this from my own store so if I had bought one from myself and it wasn’t
splattered, I would sue myself. If you liked any of those, I will leave the link
to that store down below. I kind of want to do like a mystery box thing where you
order a record and then I pick one for you based off of like what you like, kind
of like a vinyl subscription service but you actually just like buy a mystery box
and I send you like a record and a pin or a patch or something cool. I don’t
know, let me know you think about that idea. I just have a lot of ideas and I
don’t know what to do with all of them, they just bounce around my head for a while so. The next record is actually another testament to the fact that I can’t just
choose one pressing despite the fact that they all play the same album. I’m
just weak and I don’t know how to not find the whole exclusive thing and I’m
weak and I’m weak, so weak. Trophy Eyes put out a great new album called “The
American Dream” and I could go on for hours about how much I love this band
and their refusal to just fit into the genre stereotypes of old. I think genre’s
dead, that’s just my opinion but the fact that they’re just willing to do what
they think sounds good and then just go with that – I love that. They put out this
album “The American Dream” and the pressings were beautiful and even though
they all play the same album I was like ‘oh I need all of them”
and then when I was on the web store I noticed that they also had a pressing of
“Chemical Miracle” that I didn’t have and that’s how I ended up with all of
these. So let’s start with “Chemical Miracle” shall we?
This is “Chemical Miracle” have you met her? I already have at least one other
pressing of this one, don’t really remember… maybe there’s more, I don’t want to talk about it. This album is fantastic, I listened to it all winter last winter.
I’m ready to start spinning it this winter again. I think the pressing I got…
I remember opening it and it felt like gritty like there was sand because
sometimes when they do the type of pressing it was, they end up gritty?
I remember somebody explaining that to me in the comments. This one is not
gritty but it’s beautiful. I saw so many people with this pressing online and I
was so mad I didn’t have it but I feel like it used to only ship from Australia
and I wasn’t down to pay those shipping costs so I just kept like putting it off
and sulking. But I really wanted this for so long and I know there was a reason I
didn’t get it, but then when I was ordering the other ones anyway… you know, when in Rome! Spend all your money on vinyl you don’t need! And then we have
“The American Dream” don’t know which of the two pressings this one is but if you
like music you might like this album, it’s fantastic. I love it front to back
but my favourites probably include oh oh I wrote a whole blog post about this
album there were a couple songs that just made me like cry and feel really
like uneasy inside and it was a cotton candy sky and a symphony of crickets it
was like ASMR but painful and hurtful you should listen to that but lavender
Bay is definitely the best song on this album the key change amazing so okay so
this is the white one so this is the white splatter pressing with black
yellow and red and it’s fun we need to get that you need to get a light I need
to get like a ring light people get them so their makeup looks nice in their eyes
sparkle I just wanted some final looks nice but it’s a nice pressing yes and
then of course I have another copy of that one why wouldn’t I
this one is a tricolor white yellow red it is so sad that I had to think about
that before I said it out loud my last two brain cells are quaking yeah
it’s getting darker in here I really love that it is not even five o’clock
and it’s dark because Canada is so far from the equator but yeah this is
another this is another pressing they’re very fun they’re in the web store I
think I don’t think they’re all sold out so if you want one they should still be
there I’ll find links I’ll leave them below to
it’s on merch now and then yet another example of how I have to buy multiple
pressings of everything Like Pacific “In Spite Of Me” I got two copies of this as
well I also love this album these are also our hometown boys so got a support
gotta buy all the pressings I got them from pure noise so they’re also merch
now so I’ll leave the link to that as well but I got they had like a one of
the pressings you can only get if you bundled it with the other pressing and
that was the pressing I wanted so I got both you guys are schemers but you know
what you’re doing and it worked so this is you cannot see the colour of that very
well on that but it’s purple. Hang on, what if
I use my phone… how am I gonna hold this hand on my shoulder there you go hey
this is a new way of doing things that is not practical at all but look how
purple it is it’s it’s very powerful okay we’re done we’re done with that but
a beautiful pressing nonetheless I really like this one actually the color
turned out really cool and I like how it contrasts with yellow and as for the
other one this is the one that I really wanted beautiful it’s blue and purple
smash I believe its cope with some yellow splatter this side is more yellow
splatter and the other side really know what’s going on didn’t lot going on up
there seems like something I don’t remember how to film next we have a
record from an artist that really proves how long it’s been since I last made a
video because I have not even had the chance to mention him on this channel
since I started listening to him it’s Joji so you haven’t heard of him here
but you’ve definitely heard me talk about him everywhere else.
I saw him live last month… two months ago? *chefs kiss* amazing, loved it, loved every minute of it. He has a show here in February, I couldn’t get tickets. I’m going to
Mission: Impossible my way in from the roof and watch from a cord at the sky
that’s the plan so this is his EP I should probably
mention that just too busy talking about Joji. This is his EP “In Tongues”, fantastic EP. His new album is out now called Ballads1 I’m waiting on my vinyl from that also fantastic really like the song no fun so
if you’re looking for a song that yeah right off of this one you should listen
to demons and will heed those are my recommendations I’m just saying but when
this arrived I was nervous because I got it from Urban Outfitters and it said it
was this purple pressing and then the sticker on it just said clear and I was
like “that is not the pressing I ordered oh my god oh my god no” I was like I
can’t even ask them to send me the proper one because it sold out so fast
it’s definitely gone and I was like this sucks. And then I opened it ready to be sad and like disappointed… everything was fine.
Literally have no idea why they did that or what happened. Oh, is this another situation where I need to get my phone
out? Hang on, let’s balance things. It’s purple, this is the proof that it is purple. Why does purple not show up on camera?
Why does this look so much cooler? I mean, the record looks cooler. I definitely
don’t look cooler in this situation but that’s fine. hmm
I thought I already showed you all the records I picked up multiples of, but I
forgot that I also picked up two of The Maine’s album “Less Noise” because I am The Worst! So I actually picked up two copies of this because they were both available and so
I had no control and – download no control on iTunes. *clip of Tom Harlock vine* oh my god I think someone’s died, that’s horrible…. *yelling out the window* buy no control on iTunes! If you didn’t actually hear this album yet it’s a bunch of like acoustic and kind of
toned down versions of some of their other songs it’s really beautiful to
listen to honestly I really liked it I had a good description of it when it
came out and now I can’t even remember but it felt like I don’t know like Ryan
odd I was doing a cover of the main I don’t know it was really cool thank you
these are both really nice pressings I love them they actually got delayed
because the first batch didn’t turn out the way they wanted but I want a copy
from that batch because my brain is going that super exclusive they didn’t
even want it so this first pressing looks like blood
in the water that’s the only way I can describe it it’s supposed to be like
Americana its name is Americana but there’s not a ton of blue so it just
looks like somebody died and fell in a pool in the water got all bloody you
know there is a little bit of blue you can see some over here that’s kind of it but please before I
get dragged I’m not saying that in a bad way I literally don’t care if there is
blue in it or not I am just happy to have it because it’s the mane and it’s
vinyl and my brain isn’t focused on what color the pressing is it just wants all
of the pressings and then the next pressing is this coke bottle clear it’s
a little bit more turquoisey than a usual coke bottle clear but on camera it
looks perfect no need to balance this and use a flashlight today that sounded
like professor Frank and I’m really sorry next we have another stack of
things because I had to divide them up because there were too many they kept
falling over things are going great my record shelf is full there is no space
for more records I am trying to find new places to stack them in the room it is
not going well and that is fine we will pretend it is fine. So I actually have a bunch of Twenty One Pilots stuff, so I have the CD that came with
the pre-order and there was patch and there was bandana there’s a whole thing
and then there was this which I thought was Trench when I ordered it they were
like oh it’s limited to 40,000 copies and I was like well that doesn’t seem
very limited but I still want to have Trench on vinyl so I ordered it and… it
is not Trench. It’s the Trench 10-inch triplet EP so it
still said Trench it just wasn’t Trench it was Trench EP. My brain did not
process this so anyways I was very surprised when this went on sale not too
long after. But I was like “well I mean I’m gonna order them all anyway” – oh my
god I lifted that up and realized I have another record I bought multiple copies of, I’m gonna put this back down to hide my mistakes. So the Trench
triplet EP huh? Let’s look at that. So yeah this is it
it’s yellow it’s translucent it’s ten and I was shocked and that is fine it
means I got two things and they’re not the same record in two different colors
they’re the same color of two different records an interesting twist for me um
speaking of twenty one pilots I wrote four articles about them for
Billboard this summer I’ll leave the links below if you want to check them
out I like completely dove into the world of Trench and like tried to decode
all of the different messages and lyrics and like video hints and clues so if
you’ve been trying to figure it out and have been like this is extreme don’t
worry I did it for you so I will leave those links I sacrificed my sanity for
the good of the team you’re welcome let’s look at Trench so Trench is
equally yellow not sure if you see a theme with this with this era it’s
yellow so yeah this one is yellow too I that’s about all I have to say about
that Trench is a green album what do you guys think I forgot I have not made a
video about that so we haven’t spoken about it
I love this album I think it’s fantastic leave the city
you mean you cry in my car I actually think I love almost every song there’s a
couple where I’m just kind of like it but for the most part I like connected
to them I would die for them I would kill for them so hey here’s my latest
mistake I got two copies of Boston Manor’s “Welcome To The Neighbourhood”. “I am so surprised,” said nobody that watched the first 300 minutes of this video. It’s
fine. So let’s take a look at these pressings. I have been trying to relaunch
my vinyl Instagram at the same time as this just so that I feel like these
records have served some sort of purpose besides feeding my weird need to buy
them and everybody seemed to really like this one It is a lot of marbling and splattering and such – honestly I know there’s terms for everything, I just don’t care anymore.
Like I feel like this year, I just got old and like didn’t care about the lingo
and everything anymore. I just like collecting records, I don’t actually care
about the terminology and like gatekeeping who’s allowed in and who’s
not, who’s cool enough to know everything and who has the wrong turntable. I just
don’t care. So this is a nice record, I like it and I
like the album. “Flowers In Your Dustbin”? Banger. Loved it. The whole thing with the
balaclava? This feels very old Twenty One Pilots, really enjoy that I could wear a
balaclava again and instead of it seeming like I’m gonna rob the place, I
can be like “I just really like Boston Manor” and everybody goes “oh yo, me too”
and then the other pressing I believe is clear with black and red maybe some
whites splatter… just black and red surprise I was close.
Yeehaw look at that more balaclavas beautiful but uh another beautiful
record I feel like everybody’s really stepping their game up with pressings
because I don’t know I think they know they’re gonna make more money because
they’re literally sitting there going hey page backstage we’ll buy one of
every single one if we make sixteen do you want to sell 16 records really easy
and yeah and then here I come now here’s something that I’m pretty excited about
just because of who it is. I have this little flexidisc from New Damage and
it’s the Heavy Hearts single “Cut Too Deep” which is one of their new songs. Their
new album is going to be amazing, I am so excited. If you haven’t listened to this
yet, please do. If you haven’t listened to their old album or their old EP yet,
obviously you haven’t been listening to me first off so THAT hurts… but that’s
okay. Their album “Bliss” and their EP “On A
Chain” are both fantastic, “On A Chain” specifically, like there’s a
lot of growth there but then with this album, there’s even more growth so
like can’t wait. Wow this is so white it’s making me look less pale I’m
keeping this in frame for the rest of the video. I look healthy, damn who’s she!! Yeah, Heavy Hearts, expect to hear about
them a lot more on this channel because I never shut up about them and I’m
really going to be taking this opportunity to continue not shutting up
about them. Thank you so much. And then the last thing I have – I know we reached
the end already, thank god, it’s only been three days since we started watching
this. We have “You Me At Six” and their album “VI”. I love You Me At Six, I feel like
I’ve already said the number six too many times so I’m gonna try to stop now.
I’ve loved them for a really long time, they disappeared for far too long. I saw
them at Reading Festival, they did like a surprise set at the pit stage and
everybody lost their collective minds but now I think they’re not on their
label anymore they released this through AWOL which is like a distribution
company but not a label I think so that was kind of interesting but I’m really
glad it’s a fantastic album I really really enjoyed it the video for 3 a.m.
when they do like a choreographed dance routine really really connected with
that as like a boy band fan boy band fanned that’s great boy band fan English
a great album you should totally listen to it and
these guys it’s just really good to see them back in on their a-game like I feel
like they disappeared for so long I thought maybe they were just gonna leave
and it kind of hurt but to see them back and performing as well as ever feels
really good so let’s look at this record if it’s a theme that you see on a lot of
these records today bright yellow I didn’t wear this shirt
on purpose I just wore it because it was on the top
of the pile of clothes anyway yellow beautiful love it love yellow and it
also came with this single you’re getting 3 a.m. and fast-forward
which or two of the singles so came with this little guy which is super fun and I
love that too so Wow that’s it
my first vinyl haul in a million years thank you so much for watching please
tell me about your pressings below if I don’t have a link below for something
that you’re looking for let me know and I’ll go find it for you
happy vinyl collecting I’ll leave the link to my vinyl Instagram below – I
know a lot of people don’t like my normal one because it’s you know me and
my life so if you just want to look at records I’ll leave that for you to
follow me on social media so we can talk about records and other things and the
music that I haven’t talked about that is come out in the last 6 months
oops oh it’s fine but hey it’s really good to see you guys thanks for being
here I hope you enjoyed this if you have
anything specific you would like to see on this new channel tell me below send
me an email send like smoke signals into the sky whatever works for you I just
have a lot of ideas myself but if you guys have anything specific I will add
it into my list I have this like new motivation to do so much stuff so like
let me know let me know but thank you guys so much for watching it was great
seeing you I will see you again soon bye
