      Default White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood

      What, did we hit the thread limit or something? New album, new thread, guys.

      Album release date is March 9th. Check out these track times:

      1. Soft Music/Juno Portraits Of The Jovian Sky (5:36)
      2. Paranoiac Intervals/Body Dysmorphia (7:15) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuFw4IZWOUE)
      3. Writing The Circles/Orgone Tropics (6:15)
      4. Plateau Phase/No Careerism No Corruption (5:19)
      5. Sophie Calle Private Game/Every Person Is A Pussy, Every Pussy Is A Star! (8:09)
      6. If You Talk To Symbol/Hostility Voyeur (8:33)


      New track sounds pretty hi-fi. There's some clever stuff going on with the mix and dynamics, and it feels strong with the consistent kick/snare. Though "Paranoiac Intervals" is great, I think the "Body Dysmorphia" part is somewhat dull rhythmically and melodically, like it's just mechanically throwing out these beat trip-ups and inversions that have very little meaningful impact. And overall, this isn't Kevin's confident singing voice on albums from days long past; even though he's singing some notes instead of just shout-talking, his voice sounds kind of weak, hopefully just for effect. More forgivable if it's not like that for the entire album.

      Oh, and we finally get "pussy is a star." Didn't we get a clip of that on YouTube like 10 years ago? (And not what was in "L'Age D'Or.")

      I'm digging the new track, and I had quite low expectations after reading the press release. It's catchy and fun, I even like the MGMT/John Maus-esque ending.

      Also, "If You Talk to Symbol" is likely one of the new songs played at Union Pool last year ("If you talk to symbol, tell her I moved on"). I love that track so I'm glad it's on the album.

      I agree, the border is odd, but I guess it fits the whole 80s comic theme David and JLP where going for.

      I like the border. It gives it a nice paperback kind of look.

      Yeah I agree! Nice paperback feel.

      The lyrics in the single, "kissing you on Pike, Bellevue ave" those are streets here in Seattle... I wonder.
