Emotions run¬†high with vinyl collectors around mid-April’s giant day for¬†the indie record store. ¬†We celebrate the victories, clutching that rare copy of Paranorman in our sleep-deprived hands. ¬†We weep as the family of professional line-waiters¬†at the front of the line grab the last¬†copies of Cake’s box set. ¬†We laugh when Cake announces that they’ll be selling more sets the following week. ¬†We scratch our heads as the masses fork over $100+ for a hokey, glow-in-the-dark single of Ghostbusters. ¬†This vinyl thing?…It’s a marathon, folks.
And¬†this train don’t stop. ¬†The game is forever afoot. ¬†Think of “The Nothing” from The Neverending Story, but replace that horrifying wolf thing with a¬†shimmering array of vinyl, stretching a rainbow splatter across the horizon. ¬†Catch your breath and double-knot your sneakers. ¬†Game on.
I’m not sure when White Lung’s preorder for Deep Fantasy went up for sale, but it’s UP, and it’s still available. ¬†Don’t let that ‘puppies and sugar plum dreams’ album cover fool you. ¬†White Lung have gotten top marks in punk circles and have moved beyond their Canadian scene to an international audience.¬† If you loved Perfect Pussy’s recent release, this one belongs on your shelf too. ¬†Check out the first track below.
