Absolutely.

Yeah, they are currently back on speaking terms and touring. They are supposed to be here next week actually. I'm tempted to go just because they could devolve into a fist fight at any given moment.
That would be beautiful, great music, beer and a kick-off on the stage...!!!!

They are a great band.

Benjamin Todd has a new solo album coming out in a few days, plus a new album from his ‘band’ (wife and a few friends, really - he’s still the driving creative force) Lost Dog Street Band. And the dude is now a full-time farmer/rancher in Kentucky.

As someone who has participated in all the formats, HR streaming services give you the biggest bang for your buck and you will listen to a wider range of music and new releases. The problem with vinyl is that it starts to soak up your spending money, I was last into records big time early to mid 2010's and I was easily spending €500/++ every month, sometimes a lot more. It's intense and it fills space too. I like that level of intensity though, I was big into Ivy style at the time and that delivered the same vibe.

But at this stage, my Qobuz HiRes subscription at €14.99 delivers much more on musical exploration and just setting playlists, sometimes just stuff you like the album cover, or track name. If I stuck with vinyl, I'd still be into subscriptions of Blue Note albums released on two 12'' 45rpms and the like. Very aesthetically pleasing and great talking pieces, but not where I need to be right now.

Playing vinyl is is akin to a sacrament.
