39.95€ at my local record store. Still not bad for three LPs.
I got a few nice things delivered to me today. The first two are CDs and the third vinyl.
Boris - Flood
Deafheaven - Sunbather
Mastodon - Crack the Skye
I've wanted Flood for a while but this was the first time I've seen it online for a reasonable price new. I was fully expecting to be able to buy Sunbather from my local record store on release day but despite their chain sort of specializing in metal none of their stores had ordered copies on the shelf. I prefer purchasing as much of my music locally whenever possible even if it is slightly more expensive to me because I like to support the local businesses, but ultimately I ended up ordering the CD online for almost half the price my local store would've offered it to me if I'd ordered it through them. I'm facing the same situation with the new Kanye West album; I've checked both record stores and most of the department stores in my city to no avail. I hate to order such a major release from the internet because it's not being offered locally, but what can you do.
