Vinyl and Cassette News: UNFD Represses “Discoveries” by Northlane Along With Other Significant Releases

discoveries

Recently Australian punk and metal label, UNFD, released a select amount of represses from Australian metalcore giants Northlane, In Hearts Wake, and The Amity Affliction.  Releases like The Amity Affliction’s “Severed Ties”, In Hearts Wake’s “Earthwalker”, “Skydancer”, and “Divination”, and Northlane’s “Singularity” were all rereleased on 3 separate variants each.  However, the most significant repress out of all of these releases is the repressing of Northlane’s “Discoveries”.  “Discoveries”, which is Northlane’s debut full-length album, is not only one of their best releases, but it is also one of their rarest releases on physical formats.  Before this repress, “Discoveries” was on two different variants; Nebula Swirl and White each limited to 150 copies.  It also had two pressings on CD, but those are even harder to find copies for sale.  The vinyl copies, however, are not only limited, but extremely expensive as well.  The White variant can be bought for as little as $120 on Discogs and has been sold for as much as $178.  The Nebula Swirl variant on the other hand is nearly three times as expensive, selling for as little as $308 and as high as $360!  So it’s fair to say that this repress was huge news for any fan of Northlane who never got a chance to own their first record on vinyl.

Unfortunately, “Discoveries” is sold out on nearly every site it was being sold on.  Merchnow and 24 Hundred are already sold out completely, but some online stores have a few copies left!  I’ve attached all links to pick up any variant below for those who want to buy a copy before they’re sold out completely.  The album is stellar to say the least, so if you are on the fence about picking up a copy for yourself, I highly suggest you grab one, especially since these represses might go up in price once they are totally sold out online!  We still have a few more posts left before the end of 2016 so check back in to see what we have left to release!

The Thursday Ten: 10/20/16

img_3024

It’s Thursday which means it’s time for one of my favorite segments to write on Erik’s Album Reveiws: The Thursday Ten.  You guys should know the rules by now; every album is listened to 1-2 times and given a numerical, whole number score out of 10.  This week I chose a bunch of 2016 (and one 2015) releases that I really enjoy, so the ratings might not fluctuate that much and might appear inflated to a new reader.  However, if you read last week’s “The Thursday Ten”, which also happens to be posted below, then you will know that I don’t always give ratings this high.  All albums mentioned can be streamed on any of the major music streaming and distribution sites.  Give them a listen and let us know what you think of the ratings and what albums we should rate next below in the comments!

  1. Show Me A Dinosaur – Show Me A Dinosaur: 9/10
  2. Chance The Rappers – Coloring Book: 8/10
