I don't know if this is serious or not, but I would like to say that I am quite upset. Not only is the item months late with no explanation (a post on a message forum hardly counts - at the very least, an email should be sent out to all who purchased the album), but Cloud Recordings does not respond to attempts to reach out to them for more information. I purchased this album as a birthday present for my wife. When it didn't show, I thought I could make it my Christmas gift to her...and still nothing. It isn't so much the inconvenience that bothers me, it is the total lack of professionalism and complete disregard for the fans and supporters who help make this all possible. I know this isn't some big business that should be expected to have someone manning the emails etc. at all times, but is it too much to ask that those responsible show a little respect to us?

Come on.

This is serious. There needed to be an appropriate topic dedicated to it, since it is a big deal to a lot of people. I would be upset if I didn't get the CD version a while back. I hope Cloud takes good note of complaints to figure out a way to avoid this in the future.

I got my vinyl a month or two ago, all nice and white. I live in east Texas, so that might have something to do with it though.

ps- love you, Connor! sorry, i had the wrong person.

Kelly... been there, done that. Had a response. First, "It will be October", then November, then 2nd week of December. Just be straight with us and we wouldn't be so angry about the current state of affairs. I find it a shame that it has to come to the point where we have to start an 'angry' thread but I'm sure that I'm not alone in saying that we feel ignored. Kelly, YOU are the sole link to finding out what has happened to our MONEY - $40!!! Are you aware that that is the most money I've ever spent on a piece of vinyl.? In thirty-five years of buying records.! It's not $10 or even $20. $40!!! When I hand over that kind of money I expect it to arrive on the day of release delivered on a white stallion ridden by Lady Godiva.
The sad part is... CIRCULATORY SYSTEM NEED A MANAGER WHO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE F*CKING DOING.! Some of the best music made this decade going unlistened to because there isn't structure or a business plan. I've been in the music biz long enough (25 years) to know that this is unacceptable. Co-ordination is the key to having a successful lp release. How they managed to get a tour together is a mystery. All I know is that I delayed getting my album so CS could do their tour in a country I don't live in. Have some respect for your international fans. We're the ones who continue to spread the word about E6/OTC/NMH/CS/tAiS etc. They wouldn't get any attention if there weren't people like me telling ATP organisers to book OTC.

Apologies and excuses are no longer enough Kelly. I want my deluxe album NOW. And the third lp better be available as a digital download too - it's the least you can do to say sorry to everyone who handed you a huge chunk of change in good faith that their favourite band would, literally, deliver the goods.! Merry Xmas.

There are always going to be people who think the world was made to serve them. Kelly has been keeping us updated, so I don't know why he's begging her to be straight with us.

I'm trying to think of what Kelly did wrong here, but I don't think any of it was her fault. She couldn't have anticipated the pressing errors and everything. When you paid them the money for the records, you were paying an independent distributor; supporting independent music is always going to be somewhat philanthropic, so to act like you were expecting the smooth efficiency of a multi-million dollar corporation whose primary interest is to make money is kind of silly.

In the future, Kelly, you might want to wait to take people's money from their accounts until you ship the records. That might give people less of a reason to be mad. However, I would still pay the $35 up front knowing that you needed it at the time to complete the process and everything (since independent distributors can't always be expected to have the kind of backing to support their entire project before they make any sales).

seamantis
12-23-2009, 09:30 AM
It is reasonable for people to be frustrated but telboyD there is no reason to be a bully. People laugh at that word but reading through that post it was all I could think of. I'm sure that Kelly is being strait with us but circumstances change and no amount of honesty can change what has happened and what is going to happen.

I would love this record soon as I did not buy the CD and holding the delicious, creamy, pearly, sweet white vinyl in my hands would make my sad life complete lol. Throwing a tantrum at someone who (I dont talk so much but who I gather) is a good person and a friend of the bands whos record you are buying will not make it arrive quicker.

Congrats on your work in the music industry, it makes your response more valid than other fans. :rolleyes:

Abel
12-23-2009, 09:51 AM
That's how I feel about it, Seamus, seamantis, whatever. I'm sure Kelly must know people are concerned, but she doesn't need a coolguy coming in and telling her that she sucks and why his opinion matters. For science's sake.

I think anyone who purchased it had to take any release date with a grain of salt. The more anger and frustration you share with Cloud the more likely it is to poison their well on future releases (including the OTC reissues). It's cloud recordings which means our deluxe editions are probably drifting somewhere over the indian ocean and once monsoon season is over the trade winds might carry it this way.

It's coming out exactly soon.

telboyD
12-26-2009, 09:49 PM
you, telboyD, are a cruel, cruel person. how could you post something so rude? especially publicly? fuck off, cunt. you come across as a whiny 8 year old who didn't get what he wanted for christmas. calm the fuck down.

I don't think my two daughters, aged 6 and 13, would agree with you. You wouldn't say those words to my face. 'CUNT'?! Wtf.? You wouldn't have the bottle i assure you. Whereas, if I were in a record store five months after giving them $40 for an album I had bought and they were still coming up with excuses, well you'd demand to know either the whereabouts of either the product or your money. Fyi, I didn't get anything for Christmas. We live on the breadline in our house. My only major purchase this year was after pleading with my wife to let me buy the deluxe Signal Morning. I kid you not. That was going to be my birthday and Christmas pressie combined. Why are Americans soooo rude.? In Britain we believe it's your right to complain. You've never heard the phrase, 'the customer is ALWAYS right'.?
Btw - I never for once said that Kelly sucks (unless she's the manager). Point out the relevant quote, please. I have every right to 'feel ignored' as that's what keeps happening until someone like me kicks off about this pathetic situation (especially with this being the 'angry' thread). If I could be assured by the people at Cloud that up to Christmas Eve they were at the pressing plant making sure that everything went well and then placed those finished articles into the envelopes before attaching a stamp and posting it to me. Also, some of us don't need to buy vinyl editions of OTC records... we were there at the beginning of E6 and have followed the bands ever since John Peel first played their stuff.

12-27-2009, 03:19 PM
Why is there anger over this? I'm sure Cloud is doing the best they can. You'll get nowhere by complaining. If you love the band and Elephant 6 you wouldn't be stressing this absurd business-customer obligation you've placed on them. Cloud takes a long time sometimes. You'll get your money's worth if you love the music. That's how it works. If not getting your deluxe edition Signal Morning ruined Christmas for you, telboyD, I'm sorry that your life is so empty but I'm not sorry that you haven't received your record.

Not just geneautry - I know that a lot of other people are upset about it, too. We're just all sort of speechless. I've never seen such impatience and meanness around here as I've been seeing lately. People don't seem to realize that everyone is doing their best, they are trying to provide the highest quality product to you guys because they know you respect music as much as they do, and they all have day jobs and lives. Cloudrecordings will never fail you. Please allow them to do things the right way, not the fast way.

Yeah but that post has nothing to do with this pressing.

We were told December. Now the records aren't going to arrive until January.... at least haha.

Anyway, I don't even care anymore. If I wanted my money back, I would have asked for it back a while ago. If I didn't get it back, I would file a PayPal dispute and TAKE it back. TelboyD, if this is really such a big problem for you, you can easily get a refund, either through Kelly or through PayPal.

Yeah, I'd be a lot happier with the delay if they gave us a reason.

Although, instead of (or in addition to) the bonus lp, they should just send us the new Olivia Tremor Control album (although they're probably nowhere near ready to record it).

All of you still complaining are dicks. That's really what it comes down to.

They could have shipped you the mediocre, fucked up records with the fucked up LP jackets, but they didn't. That's because kelly and Cloud care. And Cloud cares because they somehow still have faith that the people who order from them (and post on the Townhall) love the music and understand that sometimes things get screwed up and take longer than expected. I can't tell you why it took four months for it to get fixed, but I can tell you one thing: Cloud is working as hard as they can to get it fixed for 'YOU'. By 'YOU' I mean the only reason (unfortunately) that Circulatory System can keep doing what they're doing and we can all enjoy wonderful music. You are why Cloud Recordings exists, and they know that. What do you think they're doing with your money? This isn't some huge record label that plays games with peoples money; this is Elephant 6. Please get that through your heads and realize that complaining about the situation only makes you look like a dick and ruins the entire point of what we're all here for.

seamantis
02-11-2010, 08:18 AM

I'm pretty sure they haven't shipped. The non-special version came with shipping notifications, and as no one has come in here screaming about their notification email... I think it is safe to assume they haven't shipped. That and the USPS gets packages to my house from Athens in about 2 days anyway.

I just now saw I got a paypal email on Wednesday March 17th that says:
Cloud Recordings added shipping details. Please note that the tracking information and shipping status are shown exactly as the seller entered them.
Shipper USPS
Tracking number Media Mail
Shipping status In Process
If you have questions about the shipment, please contact cloud@cloudrecordings.com

Does "In Process" mean it shipped? Or would it say 'Shipped'?
I guess you can't track Media Mail?
Oh, well. It's a step in the right direction at least!

I don't think there is any reason to be concerned if you haven't gotten anything yet. That's a lot of albums to ship, and I'm sure everyone who ordered one will get it. Another week or two on top of the half a year of waiting isn't much to worry about even though I will be overwhelmed with happiness when it arrives.

I'm sure a lot of people who ordered this are people who post here, but not every single person is, and they shouldn't have to resort to coming here to find answers. Aside from all of that, I'm still happy with all of this. I'm just appreciative of being able to have and enjoy this music. And it's just a small indie label too, it's not like it's a really big corporation or anything. These people put all of this together by hand, possibly in just their own homes. I'll just be happy whenever I get it, and I'm looking forward to having it soon. I have no idea what day to expect it, but I'm sure I should have it this week :)

Well put, DaJe. There have been many times that I've wanted to express this, but I've been afraid of the backlash that seems to come whenever anyone says anything negative here.

I don't mind waiting as long as I know what's going on. I deal with orders from people all the time, and I always make sure to send out mass updates when there are delays. I still haven't received a shipping confirmation, so I'm naturally a little nervous about the whole thing. I'm moving in a month, so I'm hoping it arrives before I leave.

And for the record, the middle fingers don't help anything.

If your friends were leaving, then you probably should have had a listening party with mp3s - would that really have been so uncool and such a drastic reduction in sound quality as to make it not worthwhile?

They could have sent you inferior vinyl a few months ago, would you have preferred that for your little listening party?

It's pretty ironic you call me a cunt. I refrained from specifically calling out the cuntish little pity-party guilt trip you're trying to give Cloud and instead asked two very legitimate questions. It's obvious you haven't fully understood the second, because if you did you'd realize how bad it makes your whining look - "They could have sent you inferior vinyl a few months ago, would you have preferred that for your little listening party?" Seriously. If they didn't give a fuck about us, their fans, they could have shipped as-is (and not included any bonus extras like the CD). Would you have honestly preferred that? You're delusional if you think you're in some kind of justified bitching majority tired of the "cunt" calling your bitching what it is - the original deluxe cover picture had at least four middle fingers directed right at you. I'm sure I'm not the only one tired of reading the bitching.

I think you accused me of being angry about it a short while ago and I explained that I made this thread because I was tired of hearing people bitch and wanted to keep the anger out of the better threads (http://www.e6townhall.com/showthread.php?16249-Signal-Morning-LP-Anger-Thread&p=258706#post258706) (the update thread kelly made, for example). Why you keep refusing to acknowledge this or to read my posts at all is a mystery to me. It's hilarious that you're trying to defend Cloud from me considering that I have been defending Cloud and trying to quell the bitching for almost a year now.

I'm not blaming Cloud for ruining the possibility of a listening party with my friends. They couldn't have known those were my plans to be able to ruin them. Instead, I just felt like sharing that tidbit because it's the first thing I thought of when I got the record, that I have almost nobody to listen to it with. So stop being so dense and interpreting everything people say as some kind of challenge for you to conquer.

It's not really fair for you to get defensive and claim to not be bitching when instead of posting anything positive about the album after receiving it, you post something negative - it's not hard to interpret that as bitching (especially considering your petty post in the " Post pictures of the hand made signal morning cover thread": "I'm not going to post pictures. Just imagine what all of the other covers look like, it's pretty much the same.").

Abel
04-01-2010, 04:36 PM
It's the only thing of note I had to say. My receipt of the album was bittersweet because it made me miss my friends, sorry. If you like to jump on people's shit for being sad, check out the "Things that are bumming you out today" thread (of which I am no great contributor), you'll love it.

Also, why is that post petty? I don't have a digital camera and I don't want to go to lengths to post pictures when the CDR art is the same and the Side 3 art is like 95% similar. But go ahead and keep trying to convince me that I'm angry, I think you're getting close.

Yes I got an email from her about 3 days ago saying they definitely sent it to the new address and that it was probably still in the mail. It shipped on March 23rd. Today is the 12th business day since it shipped, so there is always the chance that media mail from Athens to North Florida is slow as fuck.

It's not super long, and he drives up for other packages. I guess vinyl and smaller, he rubber bands to the flag.

Thankfully, I received mine today. :)

However, I was wondering if anyone could tell me where to find the number on the Side 3 jacket.
Also, while I did find the download code for Side 3, isn't there supposed to be a code for
the download of Signal Morning?

There should be a download code for Signal Morning, I got one. I did not find my Side 3 jacket numbered though.

I didn't find a download code for Signal Morning itself, either.

also, wasn't side three supposed to be random? i feel like i have the same order as everyone. Or it's at least the same order as the one up on waffles, which belongs to a certain someone on the board. again, not really a big deal but i'm curious as to what was random about it.

I think they meant the marbling on the vinyl was random.

Yeah it would be pretty hard to do different track orders of the same vinyl I think. Make testing a bitch.

the one up on waffles, which belongs to a certain someone on the board.I don't really blame him/her for sharing a limited vinyl-only bonus disk, because I think that's exactly the kind of thing that needs to be shared, but whoever it is is probably a big fuckin' asshole anyway so fuck him.
