  1. Chuffed with this. Original Sonic Cd soundtrack on triple vinyl. New Jack swing and house bangers galore that still stand up.
  2. Cheers. Tried it and still getting crackling. Maybe I'm just a dusty motherfucker. All the brush seems to do is move the dust around the record!
  3. Yes. (Only have three of them!) No. No. My amp has the 'GND' input but my turntable (Rega Playa 2) doesn't come with a grounding system. (Reading up on it, apparently Rega put the ground on the left channel of their audio cable) Been looking at one of these https://www.amazon.co.uk/Behringer-PP400-Microphono-Compact-assorted/dp/B000H2BC4E?th=1. Could using this to convert to a line signal be a possible fix? Looks like it has grounding option too. Sorry, this is all very annoying. I feel so stupid!
  4. Yeah, had a clean, didn't make a lick of difference. Fucks sake! Gonna try rebalancing tonearm to see if that helps. Otherwise I might have to start thinking about new amplifiers.
  5. Lovely album this. I was ready for more of the same boring and plain indie-girl pop that the Guardian seems to love. But I found this so much better than Mitski and the like. Probably should relisten to her earlier stuff.
  6. Deeeep Jazz funk. Fucking love this album.
  7. For an obsessive that's listened to a deranged amount of music, my vinyl phase has come embarrisingly late. No better place to start than the most perfect pure pop LP that nobody has heard of. Probably my favourite album ever tbh.
  8. Yes it's a 'crackling' kind of noise. Brand new sealed LP and I'm hearing it during tracks. Also using the felt mat that came with the Regina. Cheers for the help. Just purchased the brush. Hopefully a nice clean will do it.
  9. Got the player! Problem is I'm hearing more static than I'd like. Keep getting crackles throughout even a brand new record. Could it be a set up issue? Will I have to 'ground' it? Or am I just going to have get a new amp? (I love my current one. Old (probably late 80s) but works fine for everything wlse). Please help! Very frustrated.
  10. Had a shop the other day. Classics the lot of em. Love the Shirley Collins disc in particular. Not only my favourite Shirley album but it has a lovely booklet.
  11. Sweet. Sorry to be a pain, but whats the difference of' phono' vs 'line'? I use line for other stuff because the quality sounds better.
  12. Indeed! Also has 'Line' to if that makes a difference.
  13. If I can just piggy back off this question; I literally just ordered my first proper player (Rega Plana 2!) and am now hearing about preamps. Do I buy one? I use speakers with an old school (90s?) Pioneer amplifier. Thanks!
  14. Man, 2021 was a TREMENDOUS year for music. Discovered so much weird and wonderful stuff this year that rounding it down to 10 feels unfair. Thanks to @ngchol for both putting this together and for hipping me to some great LPs that just missed my 10. Easy choice for my number one. Holy fuck, where has this been all my life? It's so me. This lush, ghostly, kaleidoscopic, fucking magical house music. It's ridiculous, but I must have welled-up four or five times listening to this thing. It's so pretty and bittersweet. Also, playing Makin' Magick II while half-way to sleep with the headphones on was an otherworldly experience. A personal all-timer.

  16. In process of finishing up a bunch of tracks I wrote and recorded over lockdown. Indie-rock-folk shit. I'm doing it all myself on Ableton and I'm a complete amateur when it comes to mixing so would appreciate any feedback on it. Soundcloud is annoying but it'll do. Anybody else on Bandcamp? Give me a follow! (Link in my sig)
  17. Is this game generally considered like ten times harder than the first one? I remember playing through the 2016 version, and while challenging I enjoyed playing through it and hardly ever got stuck. I'm struggling with Doom Eternal. I think I'm coming to the end of the second mission (Exutia) and I'm already considering dropping it. I'm on the standard difficulty like the last game but this is whopping me to the point that it's not fun anymore! The terrain in particular seems a lot more hazardous this time round. The one time it looked like I'll pull through the shootout, the fucking lava killed me. The hell knights are infuriating, always on your case and bouncing you off the land. Is it meant to be this hard or have I just got really shit the last couple of years? Any tips? And some of the platforming on this! Jesus Christ. I can't imagine how hard it will get in the later levels. I'm just not feeling this one so far.
  18. Holy smokes this is magic. Might be the spookiest album I've ever heard. Unbelievable this was released in the 50's.
  19. and that one by the shaggs.
  20. All the time. I'd go fucking mad if I didn't. Listening to music incidentally just isn't the same, there's so many great LPs that would have gone under the radar if I hadn't given them full attention. Jazz and Classical in particular don't work for me as background music, you miss so much nuance. At the same time, music I'm familiar with I'm fine with having in the background while I clean, walk, travel, whatever. But something I'm new to absolutely gets my full attention, whether I'm playing it in the garden or listening through headphones at night. I find it very rewarding. It's how I've always done it and would be odd if I didn't.
  21. U2. Manics. Morrissey. Horrific overwrought shite.
  22. Christ, just browsed the first page myself. Embarrassing stuff all round rllmuk!
  23. Yeah, first is definitely the best and the only good one. Pointless open world killed that series for me.
  24. Teen Spirit has a whiff of this about it too which is great
