Yes! Evangelicals is right up there, next to Spiritualized, as my most anticipated albums of 2012. Their last album, Darkness Descends, was and is, a work of genius. Can anyone from either Dead Oceans or the band itself give us some kind of progress report as to how the new record is coming along? Much appreciated.
I got my copy of the white vinyl pressing today. Does anyone know what the breakdown of pressings will be? The Insound site said that the first 1000 pressings will be on white vinyl. What else are they pressing, clear vinyl? It comes with a download code to get the digital 320Kbps version plus a download of his live set at Governor’s Island on September 11, 2010.
Actually, if you listen to the mp3 of ‘Atiba Song’ (without the accompanying video) you’ll hear that many of skateboarding samples are actually the percussive elements that give the song its propulsion and groove. It’s very similar to the opening samples during ‘Pills.’
