    It's weird how it hasn't popped up on Bandcamp or something yet, cause it's way too good to be left as a vinyl/gig only record!

    i have a CD/DVD of it that i bought from their site a couple years ago. never popped the DVD in but i think it's just live footage.

    either way, coloring book is still my favorite thing they've ever done. it still sounds as incredible to me as the first time i heard it, and i've listened to it many, many times.

    i listened to "material control" yesterday and it's...fine? the basslines are really interesting and intricate but i found myself focusing too much on them, and the fact that it sounded like the guitar was always panned right and the drums seemed like they were sitting more on the left, and it just made the whole thing seem off-balance. it was a weird mixing choice. as for the songs, they're...fine. again, nothing bad, but nothing mind-blowing.

    I still listen to Coloring Book on the regular, as well.

    As far as the mixing, the instruments are separated that way in all of their records (just not to this extreme). For example, Justin Beck was left channel, Todd Weinstock was right channel. Daryl's vocals sit in the center, bass on the left, drums slightly left of center. You can even hear the "left of center" drum mixing on songs like "Black Nurse".

    hmm, i guess you're right and it's just more extreme (and thus way more noticeable) on material control. interesting. i know dave fridmann is a fan of doing that sort of stuff (which is why i had such a hard time listening to "drums & guns" by low, since the channels are almost 100% separated) and i always think it's odd. i like a mix to sound cohesive and full, not oddly spread out. unless you're doing a 5.1 mix where you want it to sound like you're in the room with the group of musicians around you (like the did with "kind of blue" and is actually pretty cool), i don't understand that philosophy.

    wow, sorry. /rant

    Official pre-orders added for Material Control vinyl (Spring 2018). Bull Moose has had this listed for over 2 weeks with a shipping date of March 29, 2018.

    So Glassjaw is stopping by in Charlotte in July for 28.00. Should I go? Not 100% familiar with their material though I’ve liked what I have heard.

    opinions?

    the tour is with another really important post-hardcore band, Quicksand. You should totally go. Both bands are good.

    Definitely go see them. I have the pleasure of being born on Long Island so catching them live is always accessible. After five times, it still feels fresh and electric every show.

    Just recently put some more time into the new album and it gets better with every listen. Very well balanced.
