sweet. there's a lot of black on that cover. it's gonna look awesome all crunched up on the floor of my car with all the death metal. (that's a compliment. if i love an album, it will inevitably end up on my vehicle's floor, jewel case splintered to all hell. WYCDIH doesn't even have it's case anymore. oh yeah, and it's unplayable coz of all the scratches. eek.)

The live version of 'Ultimatum' was recorded at the Barsuk CIMS convention at EMP in Seattle on 4/29. Good stuff.

oh boy, these are exciting times, news every time I'm away from my computer for more than a day.
will someone please post it when they hear that preordering starts? I signed up to be notified but somehow I don't seem to get Barsuk messages...

now if you'll excuse me, I have to listen to this song on repeat.

"ultimatum" is just amazing. i notice that this and "delicate hands" are very relaxed numbers. i just hope the ep and the new album rubbed me the same way the rosebuds ep [unwind] and their new album [birds make good neighbors.] whereas the unwind ep was great and just downright amazing, the album was only lackluster. but i know the new long winters album will rock.

i have good feelings about this, y'all. news of its release has even been covered here in the UK by Drowned in Sound which is a pretty big thing i think. that site is awesome.

Perhaps not for the EP, but are there any plans to release future (or past) TLW magic on vinyl?
