Exciting stuff, artwork and track listing.
I had a couple of friends round for a chilled out at home NYE. Put endless pool on to a lot of favourable reaction (it's only got one side! Well can we have it again then?)
well its only an EP sire, 20 mins is all you get. BUT YES Gathered Tones is even better and more awesome.
I was hoping there would be music within this thread! I really can't wait to hear this though, high up on my 'reasons 2010 will be awesome' list. Nice artwork too.
there might be my favourite track from the album leaking in a couple of months on a couple of blogs.
actually that reminds me, I still haven't copped that Talons' LP yet.
also actually comes with a demo version of his next LP Songs For Boats.
to everyone else, thanks for the support means so much.
also i believe a track might be surfacing sometime in the near future.
oh, and by the way, the cat on your website is too cute
its done by a fellow dis-er Bizzy, shes awesome at drawings. I'm trying to get her to do more to scatter round the site as i love them but shes a bit busy at the mo.
if you were interested. but its sold out completely bar my last few LPs.
is it possible to play the entire album in one run instead of listening to each track seperately. It's a bit tedious clicking each song after the previous one ends.
and i think its changed since the last time i used it and its only got 30 second clips, sorry about that but check your note in a min. hmmm i distinctly remember playing the whole album on their streaming.
BTW where's my 'United colours' eh? I'm guessing the postman may be snowed in :(
well i had a slight logistical problem as i was on family holiday and now i'm out at the girlfriends in paris for the week, BUT i gave detailed instructions to my dad on how to pack all my orders up, as i left a box at home in case i got any, and it was sent off on tuesday first class by my mum, a real family affair, so well hopefully today? maybe tomorrow?
It was so cold yesterday that I ended up doing dishes just to keep my hands warm... then I thought - Damn I need to listen to that record!
on a side the band and I were pleasantly surprised to see that Own records have completely sold out of the CD version, which is awesome. Now means there's only my 30 LPs left United Colours and thats it, out of print! crazy.
it's got that hypnotic effect that watching snow drift down can give you.
Plus that song about leaving the electric heater on makes me feel warm just thinking about it.
i have to regulate my trouble books listening nowadays otherwise it gets out of hand. last.fm alone says i've listened to the album 75 times in its entirity. and i'm being real careful with Gathered Tones incase I overplay before I even get it on vinyl! anyway you have all the Talons' releases and Endless Pool to keep you locked up til May.
Awesome. Many thanks. I love the way that the cover is made out of a recycled LP cover - very cool. The Donor LP is called 'female trouble' - is that by design or a happy accident?
Anyway, beautiful artwork and excellent lyric insert, can't wait to get home and stick it on.
my pleasure, i've had that big stack of united colours for over a year now and its great to be nearly seeing the end of it, 100 people out there are enjoying the fine record.
haha, a happy accidnet, i've seem some truely amazing record sleeves go past, you can tell just how awful they are as tehy have little stickers saying like 10 cents or 25 cents and they still haven't been sold so were given away to the band.
new album though will be on coloured vinyl with fancy covers and another handmade insert, check my last post for a track and some more deets.
If not -when?
i'll of course keep you inform on everything.
I really like it
so they are making their way back to Own records and hopefully will be back up on their site soon, in fact its up now at www.ownrecords.com
so if you're a reviewer and would like a copy just let me know. also if we've already been in contact and addresses have since changed it be a great help if you could let me know, thanks.
I'd very much like a review copy of this when they're going out. You've got my e-mail address right? I'm excited now! I'm gonna go listen to some Trouble Books.
you were already on the list!
cause the new track will be turning up sometime in the near future and i have (not) saturated the boards enough with mie stuff.
HUGE NEWS (i.e a track) - http://www.barkandhiss.com/trblbks/
might want to click the picture.
On first listen, seems a bit more polished, less lo-fi than the United Colours but in a good way.
Looking forward to it.
its definitely a fuller sound, i'll probably post the press release in a bit and it'll give you a better idea of everything.
i've listen to the album far too much recently and its a perfect entity but if i'd have to pick one track this would be my favourite, it jsut becomes sublime.
p.s tim hecker is in may not march ;)
its wetting my apitite now
glad i could have wetted your appetite.
just a bit more info about the new album up at the mo, but much more to follow.
as a reader of your blog can customize the colourscheme, sweet
it is a bit swish. check back tomorrow for a mixtape of some nice stuff and a piece on of my favourite guitarists at the moment.
if internet forever can do it, i should be able to find a way. any help is much appreciated. thanks guys.
Mainly writes the techno column but reviewed the new Grouper ep the other day and also writes for the Wire, probably enjoys nice ambient stuff etc. Here's his soundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/psherburne/dropbox/profile
might work better.
i'll send him something over on soundcloud now, thanks for the heads up.
re, internet forever, i think brainlove does their online press so i might just ask him how he did it.
thanks for the link.
only a month or so to go now.
yesterday afternoon who were talking about trouble books. i know you were. my friend was sitting next to you and had to fight the urge to join in.
this pretty much made my day/month/year knowing that people are talking about them on trains and its not just me on here, thanks :)
other than completely unrelated i might be putting on a gig in a couple of months in london, just me on my tod at the moment but well if anyone wanted to help, much appreciated.
one from either side of the pond to wet your appetite.
i'm not going to have anything left soon bar this release. so well I better look out for some more interesting stuff to release. and yes if you've been thinking about getting some records you better soon as i don't know how long they'll last. talons' is nearly completely sold out and united colours is hot on its heels.
this is very good indeed
