Oooooh I forgot about this one, and now I have to wait until after Sasquatch to hear it...shitz.
Describe it to me in graphic detail?
The cover art is a drawing/painting of a ship on a tumultuous voyage through a moonlit sky. The first three tracks are from Helms Alee. The next three are from Young Widows.
The track list:
1. Punchy Stabby [1:47] 2. PAN [2:36] 3. Gas Giant [3:19] 4. Field of Zzzz [2:34] 5. The Wanderer [4:37] 6. The Waves Came In [3:22]
The tracks could have easily been included with Sleepwalking Sailors or Easy Pain. I like that they held them back though. The split is going to be with them on their tour together. That is one hell of a tour. I would be bummed that Helms Alee isn't on the Seattle bill but Constant Lovers are so it's cool. I can burn a copy of it for you and bring it to the festival if you would like.

Made it to the Narwhal last night. Yesterday was a full day of drinking capped off with a full night of loud music. He Whose Ox Is Gored, Bell Witch, Theories and Black Breath were all really good. He Whose Ox Is Gored is a four piece. The vocals are shared by the guitar player and the lady on the synths. They have sort of a post apocalyptic soundscape vibe going on. Bell Witch is a drummer and bass player that hit the low frequencies hard. They rattled my chest and had me thinking of Earth/Sleep at times during their set. The vocals from the drummer were deep growls, couldn't tell you what he was saying. Trippy set. Theories was fucking rad. I am pretty sure they have the same drummer that Great Falls does. They play a blend of instrumental tripped out jam sessions and relentless thrash metal. Their vocalist was on the floor just losing his shit in the crowd. After a few songs the crowd got into it as well.
Nick came out for Black Breath. It was cool getting a chance to kick it. Thanks for the beer dude! At that time I am not so sure I needed another haha. Black Breath are such pros. They sounded amazing in that venue. I stayed back and just took it all in. Didn't feel like raging in the pit. I guess their drummer was in a horrible accident and this was the first show since he recovered. Their singer has to be one of the best headbangers out there. I look forward to checking out other shows at Narwhal. Cool place.

Yeah, that album is their best by far. Did you ever get around to listening to Bear In Heaven - I love you, it's cool? I remember around the last time we were discussing Yeasayer on the board I was listening to that album a lot. Curious what you thought of it.
