Hey Canadians. About how long does it take for a wristband-sized envelope to get from Calgary to Seattle? Wompwomp mailed me mine last monday and it had yet to arrive. Only a few more business days left and I'm contemplating panicking.
I remember years ago when I posted on a death metal forum there was a thread titled, "Beautiful Albums," where all of us metalheads could drop our guard and post all of our favorite pieces of music that we found, well, beautiful. Boxer had just come out and someone posted about it in that thread. I gave it a couple of listens and for the life of me couldn't understand what anyone would find appealing, much less beautiful about it. Fast forward to 2010, while I'm doing to my Sasquatch research I stumbled upon Slow Show, and it was all over right there. I'm not sure what happened between 2007 and 2010, but that song instantly became one of my all time favorites and propelled me into total fanboy status. I'm so happy to hear they finally clicked for you Nadine!
Sasquatch was one of the only, if not the only festival to book Gesaffelstein this year. It baffles me since he just released an amazing album, but I wouldn't miss this rare chance to see him this year if you're at all interested in him.
They still have the electronic side of the lineup that they're announcing soon, and I'm pretty sure it's curated by Decibal, so hopefully they'll come out with a few good names. At this point I guess I'm just glad I snagged the earlybird pass because now it will just feel like 3 free days of hanging out with some friends and chunes.
