  • I bought ifb's album, but that was it. I'm only in it for the vinyl to be honest.

  • Whatever Forever by sego

    yup- like what I'm hearing. keep it coming!

    oh hell yes.

  • great album!

  • you asked? That's the lateral type, free thinking we need around here.    That's just crazy enough to work.

  • hey, dayspeacemusic, how didja find out planetariat was next up on the list? When I look at the blog I can't see any announcements after oct 2017 with  the hip abduction.

  • following Planetariet

  • In no particular order; the vliets, hunter as a horse, brad sucks, dead indian, sleep maps, mammoth indigo

  • @dayspeacemusic I hear ya! Now I have a few that I go back to often (brad sucks, Vliets, dead indian, mammoth indigo, fungus hill, dead indian) but a lot of the other ones that I've bought that get very little play, or I've resold.   One thing I should tell you- these records do seem to fetch top dollar in the second hand market, especially if you're looking to trade  it towards something new.  That being said, if someone handed me 15 random albums I probably wouldn't have as high of a hit rate as I've had here with feedbands.    However, I've often swapped out the current record of the month for a different one from the back catalog.   My issue is I've collected everything from the back catalog that I wanted.   Now I have to skip months if i don't like the record of the month.

  • Sometimes I wonder if there's enough members actually voting. I seem to see the same people going through the music and commenting.   Some of the more regular people seem to be dropping out of sight as well (myself included unfortunately).    There may not be enough people liking new releases/the charts.   It also seems to me like they are intentionally pressing the widest variety of music possible at perhaps the expense of more popular bands.   Really, i'm thinking the voting only loosely guides who gets pressed and is not actually the determiner of how we get our records.

  • Oh yeah, so did anybody ever figure out how to reliably find out what the next month release is going to be? I've temporarily shut down my account (had to do it to reactivate it on a different delivery subscription).   I haven't rejoined yet because I didn't want phyz-sicks or whatever the release was.   I'd like to give a listen to the next band to get pressed before I join back up.

  • maybe there's only so many new bands posting on feedbands so they just keep churning through the ones that already submitted? Just guessing.  

  • Maybe they reupload their music hoping to get another shot at people checking them out?

  • That's too bad you didn't like 'em. I only pulled the trigger on Desert Dwellers myself.  Hopefully this months record will make up for the wasted hours.  Whatever it turns out to be.

  • might have got soviet dolls pressed that way too.

  • I don't see any showing up.

  • I posted Kirby's response but other things have been upvoted burying my message. In case you missed it, Kirby said it doesn't affect us subscribers in any way.  Business as usual for us.   Only recent changes (and I'm sure you got the email) is they've announced a long overdue minimal price increase.

  • google searching Array and feedbands - no hits. Deleted from the website.   Can't search for him.  Can't even see the activity on your profile page from Array.   Likely been purged from the system in the past few days?

  • Okay- just got word from Kirby. Dash does not affect us in any way. We can all breath a sigh of relief.   Kirby really is very helpful, isn't she?   I'm really glad I double checked.   I almost hit that unsubscribe button last night.

    I like Marbin - wouldn't have been my choice though. The "More Is More" lp is a compilation.  Their individual lps are better.  The same holds true for the Brad Sucks FB album.  But I'm an album oriented listener.  I also joined FB for the exclusivity of the releases and it was broadening my music horizon.  + I have all the FB lps so there is no movement for me to substitute a new release.  I'm amazed that FB has lasted this long.

    I lied, I have 12 bands that I really want on vinyl and if I had to pick just 1 I couldn't. The earliest album submission is 8/2016 and most of the others the 1st half of 2017.  I've been trying to bring the "older" submissions to the forefront again.  The past 6 mos. has been really slim pickings for outstanding submissions (my thought).   You should send a note to Justin Pierre James Trudeau about your mail.  It sounds crazy, but I do shit like that just because it makes me feel better and then I forget about it - sometimes I actually get a response/action.  Corporations like to send me coupons.  Hell, we received free hot dog/hamburger buns for a year from Ball Park Franks.  Maybe Justin will give you a Get Out Of Jail Free Card?  Maybe he's a vinyl junkie and his staff passes it on to him or deals with it.  You just never know.

    I agree, the past few months have been a little thin for vinyl worthy bands.  I'm not loving the fact that I got marbin instead of water strider either for my monthly release.   Didn't like marbin which is why i requested a different record.    Put in an email to Kirby but likely after closing Friday.   Probably won't get it until Monday now.   What's the process with returning a record?   You have to pay shipping back, right?   Probably just as well off to keep it I guess.   As for petitioning Justin to get my postal service improved...  I dunno.   He doesn't strike me as the kind of fellow who would pay much attention to a single person, unless I had about 40,000 followers on some kind of social media platform.   Surprisingly, I don't have any social media followers.  Not sure why.  Might have to do with the fact I'm not really on social media but who knows for sure?   I'll have to give it a try though.   Maybe I'll get some maple syrup.

    I received my monthly Brad Sucks + I ordered 2 from the "Pre-order" not knowing if the lp was going to be a monthly. Got 2 Brad Sucks from FeedBands and the 3rd from Brad Sucks - autographed. Totally unexpected.

    Good thing it's a great album!  I'm sure you'll wear the first one out easily leaving two others in your collection!

    I highly doubt it...99.5% pure unadulterated coincidence. But I feel good!  Now I just have to deal with 3  BS lps.  I think I might have a FB contest with 1 of the lps as the prize.

    No, I'm just a working stiff. I love music and like to share it.  I don't need extra copies of anything.  My 1st album I bought in 1971 is still in vg condition.  I'm lucky enough to have a good paying job that affords me to feed my habit (and a wife that tolerates it).  I also know that others are not as fortunate.  Therefore, if I can make someone happy by giving them a slab of vinyl that they may not be able to afford and want to have, it makes me happy.  I need all the good karma I can get!  Also, I plan on doing it here on FB (Feedbands).  Not sure how, but I don't worry about details until I have to.

    Great! Where did you by the  the  IFB album or did you just download all his stuff on Soundcloud?

    downloaded the album. Cost $3 for 5 songs.  Def worth it.   When it's eventually pressed though I want the vinyl.

    You are correct, Brad Sucks has done nothing to "promote" themselves - nor have I done anything to check them out other than listen to FB. I find the lack of  fan base by bands pressed very "curious".

    Applying enough pressure results in something breaking - a FB explanation or an LP for Brad Sucks. As a subscriber from July 2013 I'd like to see some (not a lot, just more) transparency from FB. Just my rant to start off July.  I like to stir the pot and see what surfaces.

    I like the way you think. Shit disturbers are my kind of people.   :)       I'm impressed you went through and counted all those followers.   You're like an investigative journalist.     I'm not loving some of feedbands selections for vinyl either.  Sunsquabi ain't my style and why the hell would anybody buy a record of meditation music?    I'd like to see a bit more bands selected based on merit.    But who knows about brad sucks?  The guy hasn't even taken the time to link a PayPal account to the site so nobody can buy his stuff.   Either he's lazy or not really interested in selling on feedbands.

    Hey- thanks! I'm really loving his songs.   Wonder what's the best way to get others to notice his album?
