While I normally don’t sell stuff on this blog, or in general, I need to get rid of some things. This is the start of a thinning out process of doubles I’ve accumulated over the years along with getting rid of things I no longer listen to. Prices are set on all this for the most part. Except for the Alkaline Trio box and the Look Mexico and Lifetime collections I’m trying to sell as a lot, mainly because I have no idea what someone will pay for the stuff, but I’m not looking for crazy money. Yes, I am a bit late hopping on the Christmas present buying craze. So here are the ground rules:

Only the things on this list are for sale. Do not ask about anything else featured on this blog or anything that is not on the below list. Deals will be made for anyone who buys more than 1 thing. I’ll only ship to the USA. Paypal as payment only. So no bitcoin, Stripe or any of that other nonsense. If a color is not mentioned then it’s on black vinyl. Most of this stuff is either factory sealed or in NM condition. If it’s bad shape I’ll make note of it. If you’re concerned about condition as for pics and I will provide them.

If you’re interested in anything please leave a comment with what you’re interested in and your email address, and we can work out a deal. I will not make the comments public, so people will not get your email address or any other info, but I will be able to see it in order to reply to you via email. The subject line of such email responses will be “Stitches and Grooves record sale.” any questions or concerns about anything up for sale feel free to ask. I’m pretty firm on prices but if you don’t like a pice comment with an offer and we can try to work out a deal.

Everything will be mailed in either an LP or 7″ mailer. I should have plenty to go around, but if I run out I will let you know before making payment. Opened records will be shipped outside the jacket to avoid seam splits. Factory sealed records will not be opened under any circumstances. I know how to package records for shipping, plenty of bubble wrap and/or cardboard inserts will be used to try to minimize damage as best as possible.

Look Mexico – So Crucialtine

Posted: April 4, 2013 in Vinyl

Look Mexico used Kickstarter to fund a pressing of their first two EP’s pressed onto a single 12” record, “So Byzantine” and “The Crucial EP.” Each EP is on its own side, with “So Byzantine” on the a-side and “The Crucial EP’ on the b-side. the records was released on the band’s own label, Holy Hell Records. As is typical with Kickstarter projects there was a wide array of rewards at varying prices for backers, ranging from $1 all the way up to $750. Pledging $20 on up got you a copy of the record, plus some other stuff depending on the dollar amount. Apparently there was supposed to a Kickstarter exclusive color, but that was not the case as people who backed the project all received random colors. A good while after the Kickstarter was over and after the records were finished being pressed the band put up an undetermined amount of copies for sale in their own web store.

The pressing info is not known, and I have been fairly consistent with trying to find it out by contacting the band through all methods at my disposal. It’s not known how many colors this was pressed on, how many copies per color or how many total copies were pressed. So far there are eight colors known about, all of which have some black marbling/swirling in them. Some are transparent while some are opaque. I have seen pictures of seven of those eight colors, with the remaining one color being mentioned by a reputable source.

The colors are opaque green (which I have and is pictured below), opaque red/maroon, opaque orange/rust, transparent yellow/orange/gold, opaque yellow/green, transparent turquoise/light blue/aqua, opaque grey, and cream. The reason for mentioning multiple shades with those colors are they look different when held up to the light and everyone’s idea of certain colors/shades is different. There is also the possibility there are fewer colors as some of the pictures I have seen have the records held up to the light while others don’t. One thing for certain though is that there was more than 100 copies pressed, as there was amazingly exactly 100 copies purchased through the Kickstarter campaign even though there were a few more pledge spots open where a record would have been received as a reward. And the band is still selling leftover copies in their web store.

While I’m pretty sure every copy bought through the Kickstarter was signed on the back of the jacket and most copies bought afterwards through the band’s store were not signed, a small amount bought outside the Kickstarter were signed by the band. My copy was not signed.Look Mexico - So Crucialtine - Copy

Look Mexico – Real Americans Spear It

Posted: October 26, 2011 in Vinyl

Look Mexico’s latest release, a 5-song EP entitled Real Americans Spear It, is a pretty big departure from their previous efforts. It’s like they went on a long Vampire Weekend bender, because this EP sounds more like Vampire Weekend than the Look Mexico many people have grown to love. Not that this EP is bad, but it definitely strays from their earlier releases.

Another change is that the band signed with Adeline Records, which decided the only physical release for this EP would be on vinyl in the form of a 10″. As is typical with most Adeline releases, pressing info was not released and in all likelihood never will be. All copies were pressed on light blue vinyl, and my copy has hints of white in it as well. Originally I think the 10″ was supposed to be pressed on white and blue splatter, but if those plans were ever actually in motion they were obviously axed at some point. All copies come in a gatefold jacket and also come with a download card for high quality MP3’s at 320 kbps.

Look Mexico – Gasp Asp 7″

Posted: October 28, 2010 in Vinyl

This is Look Mexico’s first 7″, “Gasp Asp.” It was pressed on three different colors, all of which come in different jackets/sleeves as well. The first variant is limited to 200 copies and is on blue vinyl that comes in a jacket with silver  foil stamped letters. The second variant is also limited to 200 copies on white vinyl and the sleeve has red foil stamping letters. The third variant is on green vinyl and is limited to 600 copies in a jacket with white lettering, no foil stamping. All copies of the jacket feature the same artwork, only the coloring of the title words, “Gasp Asp” are different colors.

There were also 54 hand numbered silk screened sleeves/covers to go along with some copies of the 7″. These screened sleeves came on three different colors of paper; yellow, white and black. I am not sure if certain colors of the screened sleeves went with certain colors of vinyl or not, but the white vinyl with white screened sleeve was a Vinyl Collective exclusive and they only had five copies of them.

It’s tough to tell in the photos below, but the white copy does have the red foil stamped lettering, the reflection from the camera’s flash makes it almost impossible to see.

This is the latest 7″ from Look Mexico. It was released by Suburban Home/Vinyl Collective and was pressed on two variants. The first is on baby blue vinyl that comes in a silk-screened sleeve and is hand numbered out of 300 copies. The second comes on black vinyl in a normal sleeve and is limited to 700 copies. Both sleeve feature the same artwork, but the silk-screened copies are much brighter and more vibrant, as the colors seem to pop more. The regular sleeves are dull in comparison. All copies come with an exclusive b-side, which is an acoustic version of “They Only Take Th Backroads” and all copies come with  a download code for high quality 320 kbp MP3.

Look Mexico – This Is Animal Music

Posted: October 28, 2010 in Vinyl

This Is Animal Music is Look Mexico’s debut full length. It was pressed on three different colors, black limited to 500 copies, creme limited to 400 copies and half black/half creme limited to 100 copies. There were also 20 test presses made for this record. The album is close to going OOP for the time being, and creme and half black/half creme copies have been sold out for a long time now. Black copies are hard to track down, or at least find distros that actually have them in stock still even though they’re listed online.

Look Mexico – To Bed To Battle

Posted: October 17, 2010 in Vinyl

To Bed To Battle is Look Mexico’s second album and first on Suburban Home Records. As a result Vinyl Collective handled the vinyl pressing for the album. They usually do pressings very straight forward, with the pressing info readily available, easy to understand and predictable. Vinyl Collective/Surburban Home tends to press records on two colors, split to 700 and 300 copies. A cool, even, thousand copies. But they ran into some issues with the easy to understand portion for this record and mixed things up by pressing it split evenly amongst two color variants, are at least they attempted to.

There were only supposed to be two colors for this record, black and salmon, which looks like you’d expect, as if you cut open an Alaskan salmon. There are 500 copies on black, but when it came time to press these salmon colored records, the pressing plant screwed up and didn’t get the color exactly right for the first batches of records pressed. As a result, there are 75 copies that are more of an orange hue than a pink salmon hue. And instead of there being 500 copies on salmon, there are 425 copies. To throw another monkey wrench into things, there was no way for Vinyl Collective to know which copies were on orange and which were on salmon. Basically what happened was people who ordered salmon copies could have randomly received one of the orange misprint records, which actually turned out to be the rarest variant of the pressing. These two colors, orange and salmon, are tough to distinguish to the untrained eye, but Vinyl Collective made a nice post on their website with a clear photo to help people tell the difference between the two colors.
