Yeah, I probably shouldn't either, considering I've bought the freaking thing. Still, it's a weird hangup for me. I'm still trying to get over feeling slightly guilty for listening to things I don't own on Spotify!

I've listened to Animal Life a ton already, love that song. I really like the last song too, Star of the Age.

So weird, Subpop used to be great at sending things out before they were officially released in stores, etc. I remember getting numerous albums the Monday before they released. It's been a while since I ordered anything directly from them though, sad to hear it's changed.

I preordered and got mine before the street date. Probably helps that I live 45 minutes from Seattle.

Well it arrived today as I noticed they took down any mention of the loser edition from the site. I must have gotten one of the last ones. That color is awesome.

Srsly.


Hell, it's hard to stop listening to the title track on repeat, but the rest of the album is so good that I guess I can pry myself away from it.

Finally getting around to this album. I'm pretty sure I already like it better than The Golden Archipelago.

I'm really digging this album. Really consistent, and the final 3 songs are beautiful.

I actually never listened to Shearwater before, but this came at a perfect time, since I was listening to Talk Talk a lot lately and this certainly reminds me of some of their work. The vocals are like a mix of Mark Hollis and Tim Bowness from No-Man.

They actually covered Talk Talk as a b-side to one of the singles on the previous album. Can't remember which track. Meiburg is a fan.

It was The Rainbow from Spirit of Eden. Amazing band, and great song choice. I need to seek that out.

Oh, and I see others found the choice appropriate as well:
