    this fits excellent for the later MP releases: I buy them, but never listen to them

    Man, i can't wait for the new album. I am so curious, i feel like a litle child who can't wait for his birthday present. But, it will soon enough be the second of june. The Konkurrent (dutch distributor) has it listed that date (www.konkurrent.nl, just scroll down)

    I went to see Shellac last night, which was pretty fantastic obviously. I really had to hold myself back not to ask Albini about the new MP after their show....There is (was?) this big discussion about the format of the new album, but watching Shellac play i got so incredibly excited that Albini recorder Child of the Future. Most records he did sound so incredibly fantastic. I hope the cover will be a treat too (like the last Shellac record).

    About the vinyl thingy, it is well known that Albini hates digital technology and cds even more. could it be that MP listened too the man, agreed and had something like, you are right, fuck cds, we will put out a gloriou vinyl lp only. But now i am speculating and i don't want to set the vinyl discussion on fire again. I am just so excited, and full of questions. Will there be songs that we allready know (Close Yr Eyes to name one), will it be a single lp or a double lp, gatefold or not, short songs, long songs, questions question.

    But i trust the band. Iam sure it will be spectacular.

    (ps i didn't talk too Albiniat all, there was plenty oportunity, but i am the kind of person who is to shy to talk to an indie god like albini)

    My God how I love such heroic stubbornness! Just totally ignoring the rules of the industry. Of course it is a commercial disaster (like, eeh, quite a lot of what Motorpsycho does, actually). Of course it is a battle that sadly is going to be lost. Of course people are going to upload it, download it, shitload it. But, f*ck man, you just got to admire that stubbornness!

    And, hey, independent music, that is what we like after all, isn't it?

    For true analog peace & love, have a nice summer guys. Enjoy it.

    Where's the pre-order? I know I should be patient, but it is May 20th already and the release is due out beginning of June.

    It should be up any day now, I think. According to Musikkoperatørene the release date is the 5th.

    Yeah, I think so too. I asked Stickman just after the announcement for "Child of the Future" was made. Jeannette said they would announce the pre-order as soon as they had the cover figured out, which she guessed would be in the middle of May. This is why I am getting antsy. But no bother, we have to realise the fact that we psychonauts are one spoiled bunch when it comes to new material of our favourite band.

    Greets,

    Congratulations, guys! I've been getting a bit more work destined for vinyl lately and it's not dance. Recently a hard rock project for vinyl only (!!!!!) of a pretty together band from Norway, Motorpsycho.

    So, a hard rock project. Sounds good to me. This guy also mastered LLM.

  10. sounds great. btw. how can a month like may be so long???

    and one thing made me much more excited:

    "The band is extremely progressive and you never know when they're going to throw in an all-acoustic set right in the middle of the hardest rock."

    yihaaaa!!!!

    and now? only 2 weeks left.

    Hahahaha! I love the theory that vinyl is "back" thanks to hipsters, audiophiles and..."last not least: woman digg vinyl"

    Grunt, snort, "Me man! Me big record collection! You woman! Woman digg vinyl!"

    That dude is going to need a lot more than a record player and some strategically placed good looking covers to get some lovin'...

    about the pre-order: i mailed Stickman about that and got a very quick an thorough response from Jeanette (what a fantastic label, and how friendly they are :D.

    The release is being delayed a bit, because they are having some troubles with the cover. As soon as they know more they will place the news on their website.

    Nothing to worry about i guess. Patience, patience, patience, and that is not my strongest point.....

    I'm just wondering if anybody knows if there will there be a limited edition of the new record?

    Being vinyl and all, the cover-delay... I totaly agree with Elvin, this release sounds a bit exotic...

    @ greener81: Given the fierce (and bizarre) resistance against the vinyl only edition even here among the presumably most die hard fans, I think you have a pretty limited edition as it is...

    Posted 10 years ago #
  24. spectacular design??? wow. i hope it will be ready this month, can not really wait longer...
