"Convinced of the Hex," you mean.

Honestly, the four songs we've heard so far are quite good, with two being quite great. This album is going to kill it.

Yes, that's the one. It was on the tip of my tongue, I swear!

I downloaded the b-sides the other day but haven't listened to them yet. I did, however, give At War With the Mystics another chance this weekend, and I like it more than I thought I did.

Seeing some of the songs live will do that.

I think the album cover is both horrifying and ugly.
Did Wayne ride on the shoulders of a gorilla (well, a man in a gorilla suit) at all? He did that at Pitchfork during one of the new songs.

I really love that they're including recordings of the shows with ticket sales, and I hope they continue to do so for tours in the future.

It's a bizarre cover, but I like it, and I'm actually really looking forward to buying it on vinyl and having it in a massive form.

Did Explosions in the Sky open for your show, Cori?

No, but that would have been awesome. We had a band from Oklahoma City. They had a long name and it had "White Dwarf" or "White Dwarves" in the title. I didn't think much of them.

The band's name was long enough that a bunch of us thought there were two opening bands. Heh.

Cool!

Stardeath and White Dwarves. They're Wayne's nephew's band. I enjoyed them when I saw them open for the Lips in OKC.

Having a lot of trouble finding those b-sides online. I thought they would have leaked out by now.

No problem, Laz.

Tomorrow is payday, which means I'm going to go out looking for The Soft Bulletin LP. Unfortunately, my usual store, the Electric Fetus, got hit by a tornado last week, so it's closed. I'll have to venture out to the Cheapo instead. Hopefully, it'll be worth it.

I believe so. He is known for symbolic gestures like that, right?

Apparently the Fetus re-opened today though, so hooray! I'll go support my local indie store tomorrow instead.

Pummeling the modern day Sodom with a fetus? Not really sounding too pro-choice.

I'd pay to see that.

Thanks for the upload, McCombs.

Yes, thanks again.

I've yet to figure out a system for downloading on campus.
