Sebastian, do you own the Singles Compiled cd's? Hood recently placed a message on their website that they found some more copies (it's been OOP for some years now) and they are indeed dead cheap, as they put it. A steal, and a mighty good one imo.

@Le Bateau Ivre: yeah, I own those two (and love them dearly). I own everything by the band, except Structured Disasters, which I think is the perfect mix of old and new Hood. Impossible to find in hard copy though. Last time I saw it on eBay it sold for way above $100.

"Useless" is actually my least favourite track from the Domino years.

Not sure if this can be applied:

But by 06/12/11 it won't be a "pre-order".

Been enjoying the dip back into all these -- will be reviewing the box set for Pitchfork.

I look forward to that read, Ned. I'm still hoping for a separate pressing of The Hood Tapes. Seems a bit much to invest in the entire set when I already own everything else.

doug watson, Tuesday, 31 January 2012 20:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

Looking forward to that too, Ned, very much!

I agree with Doug Watson though, I won't shell out for this because I own everything apart from the Hood Tapes already. The singles and compilations compiled from some years ago were brilliant.

hood tapes isn't essential; let me know if you really need to hear it.

I've an "unofficial" version of the 2005 CDR but apparently the boxset version is expanded. They should just bandcamp the thing.

@hoodmusic tweeted earlier something along the lines of "apparently we're reissuing Cold House on vinyl soon". Domino website says the box will be in shops in March- maybe there'll be a download of the Tapes then. I'd like a legit download of Useless.

When I'd read about a deluxe edition of Cold House, I'd interpreted it as an expanded CD set. I'll be sad if it's only some 180g vinyl version.

‘Cold House’ is repressed for the first time in a ltd edition of 500 for the world as a double gatefold lp cut at 45 rpm for maximum audiophile pleasure and also comes with exclusive liner notes to the vinyl edition and download codes.

A great review here: http://drownedinsound.com/releases/16821/reviews/4144509

Kinda annoyed that I pre-ordered this from the label and paid £24 only to find that it's £15 in both Boomkat and Norman Records this week.

Super Receptor (Barnaby, Hardly), Friday, 17 February 2012 10:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

that's my review fyi, thx mayne

£15 for the whole box?? or are you talking about 'Cold House' on vinyl

(press release said RRP of £50 for the box but I couldn't find anywhere actually selling it for that much)

Sylv_ebanks (DJ Mencap), Friday, 17 February 2012 11:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

Ah, sorry, I was talking about the Cold House reissue.

Super Receptor (Barnaby, Hardly), Friday, 17 February 2012 12:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

ha, it seemed implausibly cheap but £24 seems wildly expensive for vinyl that isn't private press so there you go

Okay! So my Pitchfork review is up:

Quite enjoying The Declining Winter's "Lost Tapes". Undecided whether the decision for it to be released as a cassette and as a collection of demos rather than a "proper" album is a bit like waving a little white flag or honest. The blurry (non) production suits it, though.

djh, Friday, 27 December 2013 21:04 (6 months ago) Permalink

I'm hoping it'll eventually appear on TDW's bandcamp page, as has now happened for Fragment #5. A very new song "Season Without" is also up there now.

doug watson, Saturday, 28 December 2013 02:50 (6 months ago) Permalink

Also, $12US to ship a cassette tape to Canada from the US? I'll shed no further tears for the death of physical media.

And... a digital version of Lost Songs is now available on bandcamp.
