Today I want to spotlight a track called "Hear Our Song" from an incredible band called Safe from NY. Channeling the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Hot Rod Circuit, and Hey Mercedes, Safe is a throwback to early 2000s emo-rock that I love so much. I'm sure many of the site's more seasoned readers will appreciate the band as well. The band just released its debut full-length Cinematic Ocean which you can grab on iTunes and make sure you listen to "Hear Our Song" on the group's AP.net profile.

Earlier this week, Jason, Thomas, and I (along with various other people) were tweeting back and forth about the potential of a vinyl repress for Brand New's Deja Entendu. The conversation eventually evolved into a discussion of what vinyl records we covet and spawned the idea of this week's discussion thread. So vinyl lovers, what is your holy grail? What's a repressing you'd kill for or how much would you pay for an original pressing? What albums do you wish were actually pressed on vinyl (Cartel's Chroma was a popular answer on Twitter)? Let's get weird.
