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.

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.

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.

good album

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, Wednesday, 13 August 2014 19:48 (4 months ago) Permalink

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 (4 months ago) Permalink

So the Sierpinski albums have arrived and I'm siding with akm on their merits. These are excellent, especially Evening Water Project.

doug watson, Thursday, 14 August 2014 17:56 (4 months ago) Permalink

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

New Downpour on Bandcamp!

akm, there's a new Matt Robson album at Norman Records.

Obviously, all this side project nonsense should be ignored for now ... It's "The Cycle of Days and Seasons" season.

djh, Friday, 14 November 2014 20:17 (1 month ago) Permalink

Cheers for the reminder, djh. (Although the Bracken and Great Panoptique Winter discs are also both excellent.)

doug watson, Friday, 14 November 2014 23:42 (1 month ago) Permalink

Yes, thanks djh, and you are right! Barely know records that are so suitable to crawl up in the darkness to, with the wind and rain battering outside. Embracing northern grimness and misery. Rustic Houses feels more late summer-ish, Cold House is for when it gets below zero imho.

I found myself staring out the window forlornly to Outside Closer yesterday. Still Rain Fell indeed.

Barry Manowar (ultros ultros-ghali), Saturday, 15 November 2014 18:57 (1 month ago) Permalink

I may play this next. Great reminder

Outside Closer followed my Cycle just now.

Best band ever.

Cold House is the only one I don't really get

I listened to Silent '88 recently and it was fucking fabulous

imago, Saturday, 15 November 2014 19:53 (1 month ago) Permalink

Just you wait till December and spin Cold House, you'll get it dude. Silent 88 is indeed fabulous.

"Exist Resist" is Norman Records album of the year (and is coming out on vinyl).
