Vinyl love: The Beths “Future me hates me”

(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)

Artist: The Beths
Album Title: Future me hates me
Year released: 2018
Year repressed: 2019
Details: Magenta vinyl, 6th pressing

The skinny: I saw quite a few great sets at this year’s edition of Ottawa Bluesfest, some of which surprised me, but none more so than the Saturday afternoon performance by New Zealand’s The Beths. It’s not that I hadn’t heard of them before. I always do my homework before going to music festivals so that I have no regrets about missing bands that I should’ve seen but hadn’t heard of beforehand. The Beths’ debut album (this one) was on heavy Spotify rotation in the weeks leading up to seeing them live but their set was just so great, so fun, and so enthralling, that I found myself heading to the merch tent afterwards to pick up this record. When I found out it was magenta coloured after I opening it up at home, it was just like double icing on the cake. This is one fantastic album and I cannot wait for more material from them to come my way.

Yeah, I like this album a lot. Was trying to push it on a few pals for a while, but they weren’t having any of it. Not quite their thing. I kinda knew that, but I was enthusiastic about it.

6th pressing! Jeez… I still haven’t grabbed one of them.

So many albums, man. I haven’t bought one in months (not counting the recent Lanegan LP, as I had forgotten I’d pre-ordered that).
