0% Financing for 6 months

Product Code:
Sonic Unyon
Vinyl LP - Sealed
Having formed in 2007 and channeling influences such as The Cure, The Smiths, Fugazi and The Velvet Underground, Ringo Deathstarr has previously released a batch of singles on both sides of the Atlantic and in Japan, a self titled EP in 2007 and most recently, in 2009, a brace of 7s in the States. This March, the band finally released their debut full-length album, Colour Trip, to rave reviews. Recorded quickly and recalling the pop thrill and sonic squall of prime-time Jesus And Mary Chain or "Strawberry Wine" era My Bloody Valentine, Colour Trip demonstrates why Ringo Deathstarr is one of the most exciting young new bands.

But, with their growing popularity, a lot of their earlier releases are now out of print. Because of this, the singles compilation Sparkler is now being officially released stateside. Sparkler is a compilation of early songs by the Texas shoegaze trio. Originally released only in Japan, the album is now being released domestically in North America by Sonic Unyon with one additional track not on the original CD.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!

180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP

These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.


Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
