That’s pretty slick, hope there’s a vinyl release

no vinyl as yet, tho there was a limited-to-100 cassette that's already gone.

and yeah: this is good. vaguely reminiscent of caverns of anti-matter and other nameless 90s white label downtempo jams. already been bnm'd too. good lookin, phil.

yeah its good. never in a million years would've guessed who made it

at some points, it feels like a mixtape of sea and cake demos. like i'm thinking of songs like "new patterns", "inn keeping", "fuller moon", "the invitations" — those songs they sometimes do that morph towards the end into synth vamps. this album is full of just those parts. it's really fun.

Just cottoned on to this album, I love it. Sorta Lindstrom vibes on some of it.

Weird. Can't find a copy in the UK (well, I've looked online in four shops).

I don’t know about LPs, but CDs were apparently limited to …. 100 copies! Yikes. Keeping my fingers crossed for a reissue, eventually.

It was the cassette that was limited to 100, the CD is "very limited" but the quantity was never clarified.

Ah, my mistake! Thanks.

Every time I play this I hear some new element.

It really is

Tim F, Saturday, 17 September 2022 05:02 (one week ago) link

Weird. Convinced myself that I pre-ordered The Sparrow but can't find any evidence of this, at all! This happens more than it should ...

djh, Saturday, 17 September 2022 07:44 (one week ago) link

Oh, I did. Boomkat has it in the UK.

djh, Saturday, 17 September 2022 07:47 (one week ago) link

I just ordered the CD from Amoeba, $19.99, free shipping

Sons Of would make for a neat little 10" imo

Evan, Monday, 19 September 2022 19:27 (one week ago) link

dunno if you could get a 23 minute track on a 10"

you could do a 10" + 12". wonder how many albums actually get released that way.

frogbs, Monday, 19 September 2022 19:53 (one week ago) link

Oh right
