Anybody else got this?
Its fucking fantastic, i'm actually addicted to it!!!
mid-august (thanks pete)
Its fantastic, it reminds me oddly of BYOP if they were mature and had been battered about and bruised a bit by an abusive lover in its hyperactivity. Theres a real dark underbelly to it too, gah its just smashing. Epic chanty chorus', provincial references, ADVENTURING IS DANGEROUS, great wall of sound,fun pop moments. yup.
what a song that is, my favourite of the year so far, by some distance, Forests of Varg is awesome as well!
not really delved into the bonus disc yet though.
its like a flurry of punches, doesnt take time to breath and pow its done. Much like lovvers' 'Think' indeed.
it's really good. it is pretty short, but then, 26 track bonus disc.
super glad you're enjoying the bonus disc as well! hopefully we'll have similar exclusives with all our releases this year (next up: And So I Watch You From Afar and Alan MX), although maybe not on the same scale as Calories. i only asked them for 4/5 tracks originally!
as I was a bit late with my pre-order (late last week). Hopefully I was still in time to get the bonus disc. Glad to hear that it's wikkles - looking forward to seeing them with Danananaykroyd later this month.
It's so so good! I like the raw demos too, but that may be because I was already pretty familiar with the songs on the album by the time I listened to it all the way through...
Don't worry guys - we'll be shipping bonus discs with every order until March 9th - it's not a 'while stocks last' thing - but a burn on demand item - glad you all like it, 'artifact' is a belter!
I love stuff like this, if there's more to come, well that's legendary!
will book them again someday and hope their car works so they can get to the gig.
any chance of a bonus disc by itself or an upload? i bought the album at a show at the beginning of january before pre-orders/bonus discs were ever mentioned... would be a bit gutted to miss out on 26 other tracks.
my favourite songs are the first 2 and the last 2 on the album.
and they were lovely guys when i booked them to play. though i too am intrigued by this talk of bonus disks. very intrigued.
thank you for all the kind words!!its so cool and very interesting to read the opinions so far on the album.we kind of planned to make our first release a short affair (we like to think its kind of a punk album) however we didn't really want to label it a 'mini' album--->we have already written over 10 songs for the brand new album which will be more of a full length..hopefully we will get this out this year!!to be honest we are nearly ready to record already-->stay brutal!! love tom x
It's great. Bear a Bison is just wow and Drugged and Varg are two real faves. Whole things great.
Bonus disc is awesome too.
I haven't received mine yet and am itching to hear it.
although last time i checked you could at least get beat dyslexia digitally on i tunes.
I'm definitely be getting this on my next STA store binge
at 93 feet east this friday in london...yipeee x
not listened to Calories yet but I absolutely love the Distophia album.
well we will be selling the calories cd at the gig for £8..there is talk of 'beat dyslexia' maybe getting released this year but its not really down to us anymore.
Reminds me of cycling around the forest and the hills at sunset when I was a kid, to take my mind off things and have fun.
Plus it's just stonking tune after stonking tune. More please!
It's absolutely brilliant, not a duff track one of my records of the year already!
a cycling event!!that would be a good idea for a video,we are currently making a video for 'forests of varg' at the moment-->just getting the last bits of footage..i think it will be finished very shortly after the dan ananana tour---> tom .
I bought the album from a show before it was properly released and now I feel like I'm missing out. The album is mega though.
umm.. if you send me your address.. perhaps just to the calories myspace inbox i shall send you one!or if you like i could email it to you or something.
but I've even warmed to that. My favourite tracks are the three longest ones. I like listening to Drugged while looking at the cover art.
a stellar 9.4 for me :)
i think Drugged, Forests Of Varg, Eat Rabbit and Worlds Worst Vulture are just four of my faves. What an album.
however, I saw them supporting Dananan t'other night and they were good, so I'll revisit it.
Even reviewed it.
hope the promise of album 2 this year is fulfilled!
I've lost a bit of love for it..
but I bought it in Rough Trade and hence never got the bonus disc, how can I get hold of it?
