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.

the way this turns into a fake 80s r+b song @ ~10mins:

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.

I see Prekop has *another* album out https://samprekop.bandcamp.com/album/the-sparrow

The track that you can play is nice.

djh, Monday, 5 September 2022 15:50 (one month ago) link

this record is awesome

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Saturday, 17 September 2022 04:34 (two weeks ago) link

It really is

Tim F, Saturday, 17 September 2022 05:02 (two weeks 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 (two weeks ago) link

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

djh, Saturday, 17 September 2022 07:47 (two weeks 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 (two weeks 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 (two weeks ago) link

Oh right

Evan, Monday, 19 September 2022 20:19 (two weeks ago) link

Just realized that (unless something changes between now and year’s end) I’m gonna wind up with two albums featuring members of Tortoise in my top ten album’s list

This probably has happened before, but it’s been a while
