What? I’m not writing about an LP this time around? Guess I’m falling in line…
B1. Flashing Lights
B2. Future Junk
Enough is enough.
You guys have been one of my favorite current bands ever since I heard the Fast Metabolism CDR last year. Ten concise songs full of hooks that made sense the more you listened to it, with lo-fi production that fit perfectly. You guys kicked some major ass live and what’s more, Kevin is a pretty nice guy (and not just in the friend-rock apologist way either!). The thing is, I just heard that M’Lady’s is going to repress your Sidewalk 7″.
What is the fucking deal with that?
I know Dusted expressed and published this thought before I did but I’ll reiterate (and so!), most of us fans have heard these songs before. It would be one thing if you re-recorded the songs like you guys did on your newer Cauldron Born CDR but no, these are the exact same songs that have been around for a year.
(Look, I know that not everyone has heard Fast Metabolism and, fair enough, Sidewalk is good for newcomers – it’s easier to seek out a distro and order a 7″ then to scour the internet for mp3s of an unavailable CDR. If you’re reading this and you haven’t heard Tyvek, don’t let my buzz-harshing discourage you – get the aforementioned 7″ and also the Summer Burns 2×7″. Both are amazing singles worth spending your dollars on.)
I can’t speak for all the fans out there, but I personally feel like you’re taking advantage of the collectors out there who will get anything and everything you guys put out. Not cool. While you were busy putting out 7-inch singles of already-released material, you guys could have put out an LP of new material.
What I’m trying to say through all of this long-winded, unorganized, whiny record-collector bullshit I’m spouting is that the Siltbreeze LP better be fucking good. It also better be full of new material too.
I still love you guys though. Seriously.
P.S. What are you guys called these days? TVK? Tyvke? Tyvjk?
