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.

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)

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

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.

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.

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.

Album seemingly only available from Norman Records.

Oh, have pre-ordered copies already shipped?
There was a positive review of the new album in Fluid Radio this week. The author managed to avoid any comparisons to Hood, which was refreshing. As much as I've used the Hood association to explore similar projects (e.g., both Sierpinski albums are en route to my mailbox as I write this), it's encouraging to see these new efforts judged on their own merits.

Cold House has been on my list for like 8 years and I still have yet to ever see a cd or download of it for sale

You can get it for six quid from Norman Records.
I think the Domino Records stock of Cold House got destroyed in that warehouse fire.

there was a vinyl repress of cold house a few years ago. but that album is not difficult to find.
the sierpinski albums were great. matt robson was a cool guy. wonder where he's at these days.

Akm, how've you heard this already?
Looking forward to it, their first album was great too.
Seeing this thread pop up again though, how I still miss Hood.

I've only heard the 4 streaming tracks, not the full thing.
― akm, Wednesday, 13 August 2014 20:24 (1 month ago) Permalink
So the Sierpinski albums have arrived and I'm siding with akm on their merits. These are excellent, especially Evening Water Project.

New Memory Drawings is up on spotify. Nothing shocking on first listen, just very consistently good, like the last one.
