The 10” pressing that Narshadaa put out is out of press. Your best bet is to look on vinyl message boards, ebay, and your local used record bin.
Thank you for the kind words!
I’ve been hunting this since the day I first got into vinyl. I’ve had my heart set on getting the purple cross friend’s press for the past few years, but came to an important realization a few days ago: there’s no way in hell I’m ever going to drop $250 on a record. So, I pulled the trigger on this guy instead. Probably would have made my life a lot easier (and definitely cheaper), if I had gotten the Give up the Ghost version, but as trite as it might seem, I wanted to own this album exactly the way I first fell in love with it, name and all.
Mission accomplished for now:
Today’s the last day to get the new shirt, pianos/wws splits or collector’s pack online. Taking down tomorrow so we have enough for tour: http://bit.ly/kK8opk
hey there, you are correct it’s been a realllly long time since we played there. Like 6 years maybe, maybe more? We are trying to hit up parts of the US this year that we haven’t been to into a while so hopefully we can make it out!
i just updated the tsl releases page again, put a lengthy update for the pianos split, that one is finally done, also realized i forgot about the live dvd so that was added as well, almost done just have to do then entry for you will not survive. i will get there.
not much else going on, just getting ready for tour, which reminds me, if you are reading this you no doubt know we are obsessed with records, so if you live near any of the shows we are playing out west and can point us in the direction of any/all cool record stores lets us know, or better yet if you want to be our guide for the afternoon get in touch. or even best idea yet bring us records at the show, you find any of our wants and we will of course reward you:)
finally, if you are coming to any of the shows and want to hear us play anything tell aaron (i won’t read it) and we may learn it before hand and play it, a lot of the old songs we just don’t know anymore. please only ask for something if you really are going.
ps just because you ask does not guarantee we will play it, just more trying to feel things out here.
Hit up the Red Scroll before practice this weekend and got 2 albums I’ve been looking forward to. First one is Small Brown Bike’s new one, Fell and Found. One of my favorite bands ever and didn’t expect to get another full length out of them. Haven’t spent much time with it yet but I’m sure it won’t let me down. Second one is James Blake’s s/t. He’s like Bon Iver mixed with some frenetic electronics going on in the background. It’s slightly uneasy to listen to as a drummer because I need everything in my head to fit in the pocket and be in time. James Blake intentionally chops the beats and blips up to the point that they’re often completely out of time and in a different time signature from his vocals. It’s jarring and I have to be in the right mood, but when I am, I love it.
