Thread: Your last music purchase

  1. #1

    Default Your last music purchase

    In a time when most seem to either get their music via torrents (maybe not so much anymore, since What.cd closed down), YouTube, Spotify, Tidal or other streaming services, it would be nice to see if people are still purchasing music. Files or physical media doesn't matter, but a monthly subscription doesn't really count.

    I specify Bandcamp where possible, since I much more prefer that option if I can, trying to give more money into the artist's pockets.

    My purchases since 1st of September:
    Coil - The Ape of Naples (CD, Import Records, reprint)
    Bully Fae - Defy A Thing To Be (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Katie Gately - Color (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Katie Gately - Pipes/Acahella (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Katie Gately - Katie Gately (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Troller - Graphic (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Carla dal Forno - You Know What It Is Like (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Siavash Amini + Zenjungle - Topology of Figments (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Biosphere - The Hilvarenbeek Recordings (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Biosphere - Departed Stories(FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Anna von Hausswolff - Källan (Prototype), Live in Lincoln cathedral (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Leonard Cohen - You Want it Darker (WAV, 24-bit)
    Burial - Young Death / Nightmarket (FLAC)
    Mika Vainio - Mannerlaatta (FLAC)
    Sophia Loizou - Singulacra (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Kristian Westergaard - Grey (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Loscil - Endless Falls (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Vladislav Delay - Tummaa (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Gates - Palace of Mirrors (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Lustmord - Purifying Fire (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Machinefabriek - Crumble (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Otto Lindholm - Otto Lindholm (FLAC, Bandcamp)
    Mark Pritchard - Under the Sun (WAV 24-bit)

    Yes! Coincidentally, I was browsing the Internet yesterday for the best-recorded CDs, as I am putting together my holiday wish list and updating my CD collection. I am still considering dipping my toes into HD streaming, just need to get my ass to actually do it.

    Latest: All on CD

    Leonard Cohen - You Want It Darker
    The Cure - Disintegration
    Joy Division - Substance
    Atoms for Peace - Amok

    I will be buying lots of "greatest hits," like Pink Floyd's albums, so it will be a boring list :-)

    EDIT: Somehow I forgot that I bought that limited edition Gas vinyl box set that came out this year. Considering how much I spent on it, you'd think I wouldn't've.

    I always pay for my music on principle since I'm a musician and wish people would value my work as something worth paying for. After accumulating boxes and boxes of CDs, I've switched to buying almost everything on iTunes with the occasional exception for something really special.

    Recent physical purchases:



    Recent iTunes purchases:


    (Ricky Eat Acid- Talk to You Soon and Three Love Songs)




    (Weyes Blood- Front Row Seat to Earth)

    Nice to see I am not the only one then. Earlier I used to treasure the artifact and there was a time when I never ever could see myself paying for a digital file. Today is the total opposite. I still do enjoy the vinyl record sleeves or well done CD packaging, but for the most part, it is the music I am after. This can easily be detected in my list above, where only one release was physical. The convenience of buying through Bandcamp, with instant access, is simply amazing.

    In the rare cases when I do get a CD, I use it once – to rip it onto my hard drive.

    ian+, nice to see Deathspell Omega there. Have missed this release, so thanks for the tip. When I saw it in your list I realized I had some more physical releases purchased during this period (I am sure you already know of Teitanblood, but if not, do check them out):

    Teitanblood - Purging Tongues (12")
    Paul Jebanasam - Continuum (LP)
    Plastikman - Closer (CD)
    Robert Lippok - Open Close Open (CD)

    Shifts, I still can't see myself going entirely digital. I always try to go the analog route if possible. When a vinyl is not available I 'll buy the cd. Although I admit that this habit of mine has become excruciating in regards to electronic music where singles and EP's, not albums, are the standard. Deathspell's synergy sold out in physical form but i guess that's not problem for you :)
    Teitanblood used to be a favorite, I am getting a bit tired with them nowadays.

    Re: Deathspell: 8 copies were still listed as being available on their Bandcamp site. Maybe old info then.

    Went back to the site this morning (visited yesterday and saw those 8 copies). Now: Sold out. :)

    I bought this recently and I still can't believe that I didn't learn about this earlier. I've been listening to it like twice a day.


    Also, does anyone know where I can get a physical copy of 0% by Ichiko Aoba?

    Give Discogs a try if nothing else works. Five copies for sale there at this moment. Pricey though: https://www.discogs.com/sell/release/4973501?ev=rb

    Thanks for the reply, but I'm looking for 0% which is different from just 0.

    Ah sorry. Usually Discogs is quite accurate, so took that %-sign as a typo.

    After I bought that Chord Mojo DAC, my music consumption has shot through the roof. There is probably a quite low causality between audible changes connected to DAC purchase and my consumer habits, but it has made me focus on what should be important when it comes to your hifi: The music.

    I see too too many members on hifi forums who spends an insane amount on equipment, but seem to almost spend none on the software so to speak. When spending as much as I did on a DAC which wasn't really needed, I just felt compelled to put more money where it counts. I think.


    FLAC from Bandcamp unless stated otherwise:

    Second Woman - Second Woman
    Eleh - 11.9.16
    Eleh - Circle Four: 100 Gongs For Arieto
    Eleh - Empty Summer Endless
    Eleh - Radiant Intervals I
    Matt Christensen - Winter Solstice 2016
    Grouper - Paradise Valley
    Drøne - Schubert Dip
    Yodok III - IIII (CD, Bandcamp)
    Future Sound of London - Environment Five (FLAC, fsoldigital.com)
    Yodok III - Yodok III (2CD box, from artist via Discogs)
    Yodok III - The Mountain Of Void - Live At Roadburn (CD box, from artist via Discogs)

    Would like to bring some extra focus to the Yodok III - IIII release. It came out late 2015, but had it come out this year, it would have topped my year list. Holy shit what an intense experience this album is. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone with some interest in drone/experimental/noise jazz. Or to anyone who hasn't heard anything interesting for a while.

    My daughter gave me the 24-bit remastered Dark Side of the Moon (Revisited) CD. I know it's not the original but it sounds incredible!

    Nice gift though and it is such a classic recording! Haven't gone back to any of those remastered Pink Floyd releases, but I really should.

    On that topic (remastered, hi-res) I wish it could be better specified if the original recording was done at 44 kHz, 48 kHz, 96 kHz or whatever it was and if the new hi-res release has simply been upsampled (which adds nothing but file size). It would pain me to pay the high price for a hi-res download, only to sit there with upsampled CD-standard (44 kHz).

    I would like to see a list of contents, similar to what we see on food or fragrances, to make it harder to dupe the customer.

    Since last my last post:
    Lustmord - The Monstrous Soul (FLAC, Bandcamp)
