As revealed by the new Record Store Day pressing of their previously digital-only Government Plates, Twilight star Robert Pattinson has been credited with playing guitar on the Death Grips’ track ‘Birds’. His involvement isn’t as surprising as it should be, given the infamous photo of Zach Hill and Stefan Burnett infamously sulking with both Pattinson and Beyonce backstage, but it is certainly out of left field – perfectly fitting for a band that made their career out of being left-field. I’m not quite sure what to do with this information, but at least Pattinson stands to gain a little cred with this move.

Pylon Records Reissues Thrice Classic ‘The Artist in the Ambulance’ on Vinyl

Stuff 007 Stuff 008

Pylon Records has released a repress of the modern post hardcore classic, Thrice’s The Artist in the Ambulance! This repress is limited to 2,000 copies, 1,000 of which are a normal black LP, 500 which are Translucent Blue, and 500 Translucent Red, the color I nabbed above. The LP is a 180 gram record mastered from the original source files specifically for vinyl, for the best sound possible. Given the rarity of Thrice’s music on vinyl, this is a great grab for any fan of the band, even if you don’t own a turntable (though getting one should be on top of your to-do list!). This reissue also sports the album’s original artwork, instead of the iconic white-framed cover that is so familiar.

It’s worth noting that the same company also repressed Vheissu a few months back, in the same 180 gram format (also with restored vinyl artwork). That might be pretty close to selling out by now, so don’t sleep on it if you want both of these classic records in your collection.
