the best dude i've ever met in a band. on multiple occasions we had conversations before/after shows, introduced me to his brother and fiancee (they weren't yet married at the time), gave me a record and wouldn't let me pay for it. such a happy, genuine, unusually good dude. RIP

saw them as well. was really looking forward to it but was a little trepidatious about how it might sound live and holy shit, did it blow me way. i also think it was one of the best shows i'd been to in a while

i'll often have nights where i'll only play the singles and/or EPs or when thumbing through records and I'll be like oh yeah! this thing's got those rare songs! i am absolutely a physical copy of that b-side type of seeker. but yeah i ttly get where you're coming from.

what about the EPs that exist because the songs contained therein demand to be released but wouldn't fit into the larger album cuz they'd otherwise ruin that cohesiveness? EPs can be just as cohseive and self-contained as a full length. the only thing that can ruin a song's re-listenability outside of the song being shitty, is you. plus great songs as outliers in the catalogue give them a character and otherly specialness that album tracks don't and by definition, can't have. but hey, opinions
