Simply Vinyl used to do a 180g pressing of 'Grace' if you can find it (and if you have a t/t, obviously). Youtube has some stuff if you want to check him out for free first.
currently listening to Smog - Dongs of Sevotion. Perfect midnight music. It was preceded by Bpnney Prince Billy - The Letting Go
What's Vampire Weekend like btw?

Is it possible for something interminable to go on twice as long? Mathematically speaking, i mean.
Try posting a thread entitled "Which mains cable for my PS3?" and I think you'll find it's entirely possible.

Not snobbery - metal fatigue.
You haven't been looking hard enough.
Anyhow, today's favourite is the new(ish) Four Tet e.p. 'Ringer'. Every home should have one.
