    RFC is reissuing DSU, cool, now people who want that record don't have to deal with/wait for orchid tapes and more people can get records

    yeah i think his last record was hands down his best, i know a lot of people don't agree with that

    Salt and Brite Boy are some of my favorite songs.

    I would agree

    also, Orchid Tapes is a cool label - give them another chance

    I like what they put out and they can do cool things but they lost my trust a while ago, haven't really done anything in particular to win it back

    Trick is still my favorite, but he's the kind of consistent songwriter where I don't think any is far and away his best. One of his best songs is Gnaw off Race

    What happened? I thought Orchid Tapes was pretty universally loved around these parts.

    Also, Saw Alex G/Porches awhile back without really knowing about either of them, and it was a badass show. Definitely fans of both after that night

    Dude just was bad at doing mail order: took forever to send out records, sent wrong variants of records (I got a third press Alex G three months after everyone got their first presses even though that's what I ordered), not staying in the loop...just bad business practices

    that's good, i got hit by like three bad experiences in under a year so that soured me quite a bit

    I understand that and it's a shame, hopefully they'll have a chance to make amends ; )

    I just watched the video for Icehead in the OP, I had no idea he broke out that ear piercing screech for songs other than Animals

    icehead live is mindblowing, that's why i specifically chose to put an icehead live video first haha

    Never really listened to this guy. Where to start?

    Id honestly just start with Beach Music (his latest album) and work your way backwards. My personal favourite album by him is RULES but im pretty sure i am in the minority with that. The track "Fighting" is what got me into him in the first place.

    Salt breaks my heart every time I hear it. I read somewhere he changed "I want to die" to "I want to fry" because he didn't want to make his mom sad when she heard the song.
