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.

one month passes...

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

It really is

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 months ago) link

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

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

Oh right

Evan, Monday, 19 September 2022 20:19 (two months 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
