Your favourite lp color?
I like my onset of putrefaction
I want some in the style of those old soviet war era bootleg LPs from Russia where they had to use old x-ray sheets instead of vinyl and you're listening to music on a scan of someone else's skeleton.
I don't mind colored. Some look great if it's a solid color. But when it's a mess of colors, it just looks like it was made in a Spin Art machine.
i have a few, these three are all on transparent wax which i fucking love.
i got this grey splattered Sgt Pepper record for like 10 bucks at my local store and found it going for like $130 on ebay when i looked it up
couldn't get a clear photo of it, but this EP has 6 songs on the A side then an etching on the B side. looks really nice,
it's the front bottoms' rose EP. they recorded some old songs and released em as an EP. they're doing 3 more, all named after each band member's grandma. hope the rest are etched too.
here's a kinda better angle. it's really hard to get a good photo of it because there is a glare from the light off the wax
I suppose someone theoretically COULD, but that's not what actually happened with the LPs we are discussing and you said were graphic vinyl. They didn't decide to put x-ray images onto stuff because they looked cool, they took the freaking x-ray sheets and made records out of them because they had nothing else. What about this aren't you getting? Are you just still arguing because you're compelled to?
I really like this one
I also dig etched vinyl
yeah theses something cool about white vinyl. sometimes coloured stuff looks a bit tacky but white always looks nice
Transparent silver is really neat too
You guys got any love for cream? I love white, but a nice, flat, cream it's just gorgeous I think
Ive got this one which is creamy white w/ blue flecks
its like ice cream
it took me way too long to figure out the audio-technica lettering came from the slipmat below the record and wasn't some elaborate light installation above your record player...
Ooh that's a nice one.
I noticed some people say they like etchings, this guys got a nice elaborate geometric pattern.
the colour of the vinyl is like the least important factor in sound quality tho
that copy of Pygmalion >>50185854
sounds way better than their other two albums Ive got on black, its just a better pressing
coloured has slightly higher surface noise
Nice baseless assumption but Europe's largest pressing plant says it does:
>Note: Although our colored vinyl has a very high quality standard, audio pressed on non-black vinyl is more susceptible to higher noise levels and/or clicks in the lead-in and lead-out grooves or on quiet parts of the recording.
carbon is be slippery, its just a property of the substance. graphite is used as a lubricant in some applications. I guess the other dyes they use just dont have the same properties.
apparently different colours have different levels of surface noise, I saw a chart from a record pressing company which sets them out, black is the quietest, white is the noisiest of the solid colours and I think transparent is noisier still, if I remember right.
but like I said, the overall quality of the production, mastering and pressing is much more important, those two
are some of the best sounding records I have
So, you made that statement about the x-rays, and now you're using the logic that shut you down as a defense? I take it you have finally accepted being patently wrong and are adopting the correct stance to keep yourself from being too heavily browbeaten?
You get that the only reason he said black could be graphic was to point out the flaw in your reasoning in >>50185528
>Graphic - of or relating to visual art, especially involving drawing, engraving, or lettering.
The record used the medium of an actual x-ray film in order to press their record. The film includes the skull, making it a graphic of the record. I don't see how this is different as if they decide to print a record on let say newspaper, it's still a graphic. There is still a visual in it, and the visual is the skull.
These Chelsea Wolfe ones are pretty cool. You can't see the Unkown Rooms too well due to the lighting, but it has black swirls going through it.
Visual ART. As in something manufactured by an artist to be visual art. Are you illiterate? Probably, because you just argued against your own point a minute ago to a guy you didn't understand was just making a point about what your logic would imply out of the base instinct to keep being defensive.
Please, fall back on your "oh, but someone could just say it's visual art" argument despite the fact that no one did so someone can point out that if that's the case you could say the same about black vinyl, then you can change your mind again, and we can keep this merry-go-round of idocy spinning.
Point I want to make is that, art is subjective, and there is still a graphic on the record, and the graphic is the skull. Some people would say "neat, they decided to put an x-ray of a person on their record instead of using regular vinyl" and others would say "they couldn't find anything so they just printed it on x-ray film". One views it as art, other views it as just a record on an other medium. If I wear to wear a shirt with a film on it, is it still considered a graphic t-shirt? Yes it is. If I were to wear a shirt that is black is it considered a graphic t-shirt? No. Graphic doesn't only apply to art, but applies to the objects it is applied to.
What you know about that yung special edition TKOL clear vinyl brah?
some splatters are nice even though they might look like someone puked blood
I don't regularly collect colored vinyl, but I got these for free while interning at Ninja Tune, so I'm pretty happy about that.
anything translucent, working on obtaining the other two parts. I also have that Deerhoof flexibook but I don't feel like taking a bunch of pictures of every single page
this one is one-sided translucent grey/black mix, and the B side has a silkscreen print of the image you see here on it.
>also I don't know why but I love one-sided black records. seeing the sheen of the grooveless side is wonderful for some reason.
