Didn't try that. Acoustic Sounds has acknowledged the issue, is doing a repress and will be sending replacements.

That’s good news, thanks for following up with them. I also emailed Acoustic Sounds a couple of days ago, but haven’t heard back. Unfortunately I didn’t purchase my copy directly from them, but through a local record shop. I really hope they honor exchanges for those that didn’t purchase it directly from them.

The LP might not be defective - the grooves might just be "highly modulated". May be this LP might sound ok with slightly more VTF, and/or a touch more anti-skate. After all, those settings are just what you might call guidelines, not actual rules.

The Counter Intuitive allows one to make small changes to VTF, and the mechanical anti-skate allows one to make small changes to the anti-skate force.
