    An omen EP_ is the brand new release from How to destroy angels_ (Mariqueen maandig, Trent reznor, Atticus ross, Rob sheridan). You can download it directly from us at store.destroyangels.com
    So they're abandoning the CD AND uppercase.

    So I'm participating in 24-hour hackathon in Boston this weekend. In deciding which NIN shirt to wear, I ended up grabbing my HTDA shirt instead to do some buzz marketing. It wasn't until after I got there that I realized the amusing connection - I'm at AngelHack with a How To Destroy Angels shirt.

    Several tweets from Rob showed up in my RSS feed earlier in regards to Sigil 1, and were deleted afterwards. The gist of them was that A Drowning was supposed to be a 7'' vinyl release, but was scrapped for whatever reason, and HTDA just left the spot open. Digital singles are considered promos and don't get Sigil numbers, which is why Keep it together didn't get one and A Drowning did.



    Is there a reason these were deleted/aren't showing up on Twitter?

    Yeah, Rob deletes certain things from twitter after tweeting them, probably for a variety of reason. If this was top secret shit, he wouldn't have publicly tweeted anyway of course.

    I wonder if they're planning a release of A Drowning with some sort of unheard b-side...that would be cool. Maybe as a Record Store Day exclusive.

    So, I saw this posted on my way off campus today. Tempted to yank it off the bulletin board next time I'm by there.

    (Really sorry it's so huge!)

    Nah, the single is more than two and a half years old.

    Alright...so...I may or may not have carefully pulled that poster off the wall on campus...and I may or may not have replaced it with my own. You know, because I still want people to check out the EP. I'm not an artist, don't judge me!

    So I've been listening to the first EP and I must admit, I like it more than the new one. Am I the only one who feels this way?

    I much prefer EP1. I respect that they're branching out and being a bit more experimental with An Omen, but for me there's a lack of standout, 5-star material, and the second half of it ranges from forgettable to irritating. EP1 may be more what we're used to hearing from TR/AR, and Mariqueen doesn't scale the heights she manages with Ice Age, but it's packed with emotionally effecting songs and enjoyable hooks. I'm not hearing any emotion in the new release.

    More of a spotting than a thought, and this may have been posted before, but oh well:

    That needs a Terry Gilliam foot in there somewhere.

    I like the part where it goes all noisy and glitchy and reveals a man's figure in front of blurred blue background.

    no-no, the best part was where obsessed atticus, after killing all other band members, took off his atticus mask and there was that squirrel from ice age!

    One of the advantages of being at Columbia is having spambots going around spamming links to their Soundcloud via seemingly non-spam comments on music websites.

    Yes, it's true.

    EDIT: I dug a little deeper, and they might not be spambots, but people whose jobs are to go around posting links in comments, as a way to advertise the band. I think that might be even lamer. I'm not sure if anyone gives a shit, but I found at least four of these people with variants of the same, "hey I'm so excited for this project, go to amazon and buy it!" comment on stories about HTDA and other bands. I know they want to expand and all, but for a TR project, looking back on the Year Zero ARG and all that, I'd expect a cooler form of advertisement.

    What if there's a small video project for each track on the EP? It's probably pure coincidence that the first two videos are the first two tracks of the release, but it'd be really cool of they wanted to keep the momentum going with a video for all six songs, even if half of 'em are just them playing in the studio.

    Gah, so excited for the "Ice Age" video.

    Edit: My balls just imploded at the idea of a video for "The Loop Closes." Studio or otherwise.

    An Omen is my favorite collection of lost Morcheeba b-sides.
